    Hello everybody .
    It seems i got a bad issue . Flashin' was a wrong idea .
    So i think the bootblock has been reased because all the recovery procedures are inoperant.

    So i must do it via Ejtag.
    I can build the cable ( i think i 'll build it even it it will fear to look at it )
    but i dont' know what to do after. Which program must i use ?
    I will plug the cable on my desktop and the other part of the cable on my laptop ???

    Please help me ...:roflmao:

    The Acer site warns users [in red letters] to talk to an Acer tech before attempting the process. In your case talking to Acer seems like a really good idea at this point.

    You might want to read this about Acer's bootblock: http://support.acer-euro.com/documents/reports/bootblock.html

    I don't think anybody is just refusing to help you, but for me, I just don't understand your post. But then you could very well be doing something outside my personal experience.

    I've flashed many a BIOS but I've never had to use a cable of any kind and never had to attach any computer to another to get it done. The flashing I've done was from a floppy (several years ago) or lately from a thumb/flash memory USB drive. Never tried the internet connection way and likely never will. There may be other methods.

    I know of MIPS EJTAG but have no idea what that has to do with a simple BIOS flash.

    Sorry you didn't get the answers you were expecting, but you might have at least considered your request was a bit hard to understand before accusing others of not being willing to help. My experience is members here really like to help people in difficulty.
