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.
thx man worked a treat. been broke for 7months ;) owe u a pint.
BTW I formatted 4gb stick fat32 worked fine.

Thanks for the details re the Acer one worked a treat :)

Also I have 2 other acers in the family but not acer ones with the same fault.

If I get the new bios updates will it work the same ? also what about re naming the files how does that work with different models ?

i Had to name it 'flasit' instead of 'flashit'

My sister's Acer won't boot up. It starts to, and then a blue box that says "no connection" flashes and the machine turns off. I've never seen this before, and don't know how to fix it,which I had better do before she gets back to town.

Can someone help?
