    Hello,

    This is my first post on the MDL forums.

    I did latest bios update for my computer recently. I downloaded latest bios file on official Acer website then i ran the updater on windows. Update completed and computer was restarted. But no more splash the Acer screen. Then i sent my PC to the authorized repair center.

    They are repaired my BIOS. But the "serial number", "model" and "UUID" strings are blank on the setup menu.

    I searched the forum for restoring DMI data. I tried many method for this. But i can't restore them.

    I ran phlash16.exe on DOS. I tried to flash bios by using this command line:
    Code:
    phlash16.exe /c /mode=3 /r=3 /s /x /z /uuid /dps:[string] /dss:[string] BIOS.WPH
    And some commands like that. But this was not successful.

    Can you help me for restoring my DMI data?

    Looks like a Wistron bios so I'd guess you'd need the MPRW.EXE tool. Google for it or I think someone else on this forum found it somewhere.
