    hey guys, I installed the SLIC 2.1 BIOS update for my Acer Aspire One AOA150 netbook. It worked for about 1 week, and now i can't get the netbook to work. It seems to be stuck at the black screen of death. I can hear the fan going inside. I have tried the Bios Recovery method to no avail (about 20-30 attempts), tried with different flash drives even. Any ideas guys?

    Could be a bad/corrupted bios flash. Or the bios themselves are just bad from who ever done the editing. Are you even able to get into safe mode or system repair?

    Yeah I was going to suggest that. Ouch. Seems like the system might be hosed. Wait for the experts though and see if they can come up with something.

    go to the acer website and http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_one_150.html and d/load the bios update 3309, open the folder and copy two files to a formatted fat usb stick. Rename the file FLAs**t to FLAs**t.EXE and the second file 3309.fd(bios file) to ZG5IA32.FD rename them precisely like that, please check your spelling is correct. Insert the usb stick into the usb left hand side make sure the charger is plugged in . Hold down keys fn+esc and power up the laptop, when the power led begins to blink release the two buttons and press the power button just once
