i bought this Acer ASpire One ZG5 in October 2008. Everything worked fine on it until last nite when I tried to start it up and I am only getting a blank screen...no sounds. what can I do to fix this? there are files on the system that I need to retrieve.
just noticed that the bios was still v 3301 as indicated by cpuz .i downloaded v 3310 from american site unzipped it and used the insyed exe in windows (in the zip file ) to flash to v 3310.hurrar.
My netbook is not at all detecting the Harddisk in Utility Setup. How can I replace the HDD. Actually it is under warranty, but I bought this International model computer in Japan so I have to send it to US. I am not interested in doing it.
The directions above worked for my computer. I had to follow both sets of instructions for the zg5 model, and I also have 7 for anyone who might be concerned about flashing it with the "xp". Thanks for the info guys, saved me like $300.
Thanks guys, it worked and I have windows 7. Saved me like $300. Also anyone who is doing it, check the model name on your netbook to make sure if it is ZG5 or not. IF it is you need to follow both sets of instructions that are listed.
I also had this problem. Not sure what caused it, but I followed the Acer instructions this morning, and the fix has worked great so far! Thanks so much for the info and referral links. This helped alot. I really count on my lil blue. Della
I had the same problem. I downloaded the BIOS zip file to a flash drive. Then I extracted the files to the flash drive and renamed the 2 files as described and it worked just fine for me. Thank you for your help.
