    I forgot to write about the battery. When I take out the battery, there are situations I wrote above.

    Can you explain that part? Do you mean you've removed the GPU from this notebook and attempted to start it like that?

    I tried it to find out if the LCD screen has trouble. When I turned on the computer a white screen came up. This also says my screen is working. Is not it? I made my mistake?

    OK, that's clear. It wouldn't be the screen anyway - if the screen was dead the notebook would boot normally, not switch off. You just wouldn't see anything.
    It doesn't make any beeping sounds (BIOS error codes I mean)?

    no sound whatsoever. not only is the charge light flashing when my computer is running low, but also makes a noise every 10 seconds on average. It was also doing it while it was working. In short, there is no sound.

    Unless you have another compatible MXM card to replace this one, it's almost impossible to to pinpoint that issue.
    It's either the motherboard or GPU in my opinion.

    That would end in a disaster. Your notebook doesn't even stay on as long as a flash process takes. If the process got interrupted midway you'd end up with a completely dead notebook and BIOS chip would have to be removed and re-flashed in an external programmer even to get it back to the state the notebook is in now.

    I know. I am ready to take any risk. I would be very glad if you just tell me how to copy the files to cd or flash drive, which files to copy, which file I need to give what name.

    I downloaded a file called BIOS 1.45.zip from acer.com.tr. I have to open the file named BIOS.1.45.exe in Winrar and write which files to Flash memory or CD. Should I use a program to write or do I copy it?
