    I have the following:

    Manufacturer Model: Acer Aspire One D260

    Because I am a new poster the thread is not allowing to post a link to the acer bios link for this machine.

    I know I am not requesting this bios mod incorrectly but I am having trouble finding the correct renaming of this mod to reflash the netbook via usb thumbdrive. Please let me know what additional information is required from me or point me into the right direction.

    Thank you,

    According to here, rename it to ZG5IA32.FD, insert your usb flash drive with the file on it, and pres fn+esc till the power button flashes, then press the power button once and wait.. That is not a method supported by Acer tho. Their solution is there is no solution and to send it in for paid repair... I knew someone with a black screened Aspire One. I ended up buying it off her for $5, extracting the hard drive and trashing the rest.. That's a computer just not worth fighting to get running again
