Hi

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 ?

really appreciate the help :)

On the bottom you have to choose Bios

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?

Beautiful. It took a few goes to get it right, but what did it for me was using v.3310 ( http://global-download.acer.com/... ), renaming "3310.fd" to "zg5ia32.fd", editing "3310.bat" to reflect the new filename, and copying the three files in "Dos_Flash/" (excluding readme.txt" to the pendrive. Then the major difference for me was that I used the USB slot on the left, whereas previously I was using the one on the right next to the card slot.
