I have an Acer 5739G that have stopped working. Symptoms are as follow: Laptop goes through the post process, checks the memory and drives etc but does not boot from any device. I have tried replacing memory, replacing hard drive, trying booting from USB drive and more.
I am expecting that the BIOS got corrupted and I was wondering how to update bios in my case? I obviously cannot use WinFlash tool from ACER as I cannot boot to windows or even DOS.
I know that there is an option to flash BIOS straight away from USB key using FN+ESC+POWER because I used this option with Aspire One. Also I tried booting my laptop with BIOS on USB Drive and I got activity. I was using original files from the archive of BIOS 3310 downloaded from ACER site.
I remember that in case of Aspire ONE those files had to be renamed, maybe I have to rename them in my case?
And at last if someone meet same issue that I have, maybe there is an other solution? I would like to avoid replacing the motherboard as it is expensive job even that I can do it myself.
