    911 medic, I downloaded phlash16 1.7.0.0 and put it on my drive with your bios named bios.wph, and it bricked my 5630 It got frozed after saying flash operation successful. What should I do, it doesn't even power up (no fans, no lights)? HELP!:(

    Hi someguyfromhell,

    Below info gotten from another forum and NOT TESTED. No harm trying and feedback if it works... please follow the instruction exactly:

    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    This is what you'll have to do if you've got a new Acer laptop (you'll need an USB diskette drive):

    1: Follow Erudite ICC's instructions on how to create a rescue disk for your computer.
    2: Take the battery and the power cord out of the laptop.
    3: Hold in Fn+Esc, take in the power cord and then press the power button. The laptop is going to flash the LEDs a bit, and then be silent, and then turn on again after about two to three seconds.
    4: The trick is to first press Fn+Esc and see the first flash, then let go and then press Fn+Esc (and hold) again before (or as) the machine turns itself on again. If you do this right, the machine will begin to read from the USB diskette drive, and your machine is saved :)

    Thanks to Erutide ICC for the helpful input! I saved lots of money on this :)

    Thanks for trying to help Allo, but my aspire still refuses to turn on. I guess it's trash. Oh well, I will send it to Acer.

    You might try replacing the bios chip, http://www.biosman.com/ is one site, there are others. I had a laptop die during normal bios flash, it cost me a total of 25 bucks for the bios chip and worked like a charm.
