Acer Aspire One AOD250 / D250 BIOS Recovery (Bricked, Dead, Blank Screen, Black Screen) I received this netbook from someone else, and it does not boot up, does not show BIOS, and does not display anything on the screen (blank black screen). The VGA port has no signal. [FN] + [F1, F2, F3, F4, F5, F6, F7, F8, Left, Right] does nothing. This netbook uses an Insyde BIOS. I have searched the web for solutions, but the instructions pertain mostly to the AOD110 and AOD150 models. Acer support says those instructions will not work on other models, such as the AOD250 in my case. I have downloaded the latest AOD250 BIOS 1.27 from the Acer drivers webpage and added FLAs**t.EXE and KAV60.fd to a few USB flash drives and a USB floppy drive: RiDATA 128MB USB Flash Drive (FAT and FAT32) PrivacyDrive 1GB USB Flash Drive (FAT and FAT32) SanDisk 2GB USB Flash Drive (FAT and FAT32) Kingston 512MB USB Flash Drive (FAT and FAT32) IMATION 2HD 1.44MB Floppy (FAT) I have added the BIOS file with other filenames to the root of each drive (according to the several suggestions from the web): FLAs**t.EXE KAV60.BAT KAV60.fd KAV80.fd JAL90x64.fd KAVIA32.fd NEW70X64.fd ZG5IA32.fd BIOS.fd ICL50.fd ICL50HW.fd I then re-did the above combinations using the older AOD250 BIOS 1.25 but also failed. As you can see, I have tried numerous possible combinations from the above, yet the netbook does not want to read or access the USB flash drives. I see no USB activity light after I 1) remove battery; 2) hold [FN] + [ESC]; 3) insert power cable; 4) notice a single orange light blink once on power; 5) press power button; 6) release [FN] + [ESC]; 7) the netbook just sits there with its LED power light off but fans still on. The model is specifically a red AOD250-1196 / RB-NBK-035864-AO (refurbished) model. Any ideas on what the problem might be?
