Hi All, First of all I new here, If this the wrong place I posted this, my apologies. I have the above listed desktop PC, windows did a firmware update on its own and bricked the BIOS. Contacted Acer support and they aren't willing to help as it just ran out of warranty. I believe its got AMI bios as its got a label on the motherboard saying AMI Aptio. Did some googling and followed instructions for AMI bios recovery to no avail. Tried created a Crysis Boot disk but no luck either. Appreciate if you fine folks know of any others tricks that I can try to get this machine back to life. Not in a position to splash on a new PC, so will highly appreciate any help.
