I have an Acer Aspire 5830TG-6614. It was working perfectly until this morning when I would try to power it on and nothing would happen except the blue light on the power button would light up and that was it.
I have seen the forums about installing the bios update via a formatted fat usb stick. I would like to try this with my computer, does anyone have any knowledge about applying this fix to this particular model, Acer Aspire 5830TG-6614, or is this a straight forward generic fix that one would follow regardless of model?
If I was to try this, does anyone know what the bios file should be renamed?
don't play with bios, flip the computer and open the only scrw that is on the cover of the hdd and memory, the cover should slide out (not going up but yuo have to push the cover on the back side, the one it is pointing twords you when usign the computer normaly), then look on an angle youll see the writing on/ off on the motherboard near the hdd, there is the 99 % foult cause on that switch, flipit with you're finger to on and try to start the computer, if it works look on the cover you'll see that is a peace of plastic that push that switch, just chopped with a cutter and reasemble the cover with the switch manualy put on the on position (i taped with scotch that way dose not move)... good luck.
I whent crazy untill I discovered why it does not work...
