    I'm trying to do the recovery on my Acer Aspire 4830T-6841 laptop.

    I downloaded the bios version 1.12 from the Acer website. I extracted the FD file (P4LJ0x64.fd), but when I load it into Andy's tool, it tells me the file name should be P4LJ0x64.f?, which obviously it can't be.

    In my platform.ini file, the Model= is blank. The PlatformName=AA and BB. Both AAHW.FD and BBHW.FD are not working. I read that there is a way to dump/extract the BIOS file in Andy's tool and then do a search for the correct file name, but I can't figure out how to do this. Please help! Thanks in advance!

    I have that same model except mine is a -76V1 which just means it has an additional drive, like it a lot. Interested to hear what happened.
