Dear Members, I am trying for a couple of days to get my laptop running again, but nothing seems to help. I have tried the FN+ESC power up with usb disk and the .fd files from lots of BIOS updates from the acer support site. I see the laptop is reading my USB stick but it won't shutoff. It looks like it's in a loop after 10 minutes. You see USB led come up then HDD and then off, the same thing ever 3 minutes or so. Are there any members here who also have an simular laptop travelmate 5740 who has got it back alife ? Please help me!
