    I am having a problem with my out of warranty Acer Aspire One 532h. It was working fine but I wanted to reinstall Windows. So in order to boot through USB, I tried to access BIOS but when I pressed on boot, it could not enter BIOS. So, I thought of updating my BIOS and through the support site I download the latest BIOS update and ran it on Windows.

    When the netbook restarted, it got stuck on black screen with solid cursor and does not enter BIOS or goes beyond it. I researched on the web and tried to do BIOS recovery step by by extracting the .ZIP from the support site and renamed .fd fileto zg5ia32.fd. Copied the zg5ia32.fd and Fla.exe files to USB flash drive.Turned off the netbook and connected the power cable. Plugged the USB stick in and press and HOLD down the FN and ESC together and then pressed the power button. When I released my finger from power button, and then released FN and ESC after few seconds but the power light did not blink as it should.
    I am still stuck with black screen on starting my netbook with a solid cursor (like underscore) siting there forever..

    Here is the page from BIOS update can be downloaded. Which one I am supposed to download?

    Hi Guys,
    I have Aspire 5315 with windows XP and today i made BIOS update from V1.14 to V1.45. Progress bar goes to the end and after that computer was automatically switched off.
    When i switched on, windows is loading about two seconds and after that i have blue screen (windows error) and computer restart. In BIOS i had information about BIOS V1.45. I made operation from first post of this thread with ICL50HW.fd file on USB and now i have BIOS V1.11 but unfortunatelly it doesn't help. Still i have blue screeen and computer restart after 2 seconds windows loading.

    Any suggestions?

    If you get past the BIOS POST and get a Windows blue screen than the BIOS is fine. Don't attempt to recover it, there is no need. Focus your energy on Windows itself - try safe mode of if all else fails reinstall it.
