    Hi everyone, first of all thankyou for reading this.

    I need help re-flashing my bios.
    its an Acer aspire E5 411

    I delete all stock partitions of the Harddrive, and installed windows 8.1 pro then i have problems with the keyborad and mouse, then laptop do nothing.

    when i try to turn on this happens
    -power led turn on
    -Cooler Fan turn on like 1 or 2 secs then turn off (some times Cooler fan turns on very strong and doesnt turn off)
    -hard drive turn on like 1 or 2 secs then turn off

    I try this

    without battery
    -conect usb drive (2gb, FAT, inside only ZQMB.bin and ZQMB.fd)
    -press keys Esc+fn
    -conect power cable
    -press power button
    -release keys Esc+Fn when the power led starts flashing or blinking (dont know how to say the light turn on and off on 1 sec intervals).

    this laptop have 2 USB port 2.0 and 1 USB port 3.0
    15-20 min and nothing happens
    I try the 3 usb ports

    I extracted ZQMB.bin from .exe bios downloaded from acer wbsite
    ZQMB.bin and ZQMB.fd are the same file, just renamed the extencion to ".fd"
    I try to use phoenixtool to get the correct file name for this kind of flash but show only this:

    got this using both files "ZQMB_112.exe" and "ZQMB.fd"
