Acer Aspire T180 BIOS flash

Q: Acer Aspire T180 BIOS flash

Can anyone tell me how to flash the bios for an acer aspire t180?

Preferred Solution: Acer Aspire T180 BIOS flash

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Acer Aspire T180 BIOS flash

When you download the BIOS file from Acer, here: http://support.acer.com/us/en/product/default.aspx?tab=1 and after you unzip the file, you will find a file named WINFLASH.HLP. Double click on it and open it and it will give you instructions on how to flash the BIOS in your PC.

I cannot access my 9 in 1 card reader in 'my computer'. WHEN I insert my SD card, nothing happens. I searched in device manager, tried adding hardware even opened the case and unplugged it and restarted and plugged it into the MOBO again, hoping it would recognize new hardware.

A:Acer Aspire T180

Go to "My Computer".

What system do you have XP, Vista?

In "My Compute", check if at least you have the 9-1 card reader detected. You should see different drive letters in My Computer, like E:, F:, G; or something similar.

Did you see the letters? They should be next to the main drive C:.

A:can anyone help, Acer aspire m1610 or acer aspire t180

First, each model has multiple hardware specifications. So I have no way of knowing the hardware configurations of either unit that you have.

Second, upgrades are limited on OEM PC's. Your only options will be RAM and the video card. And in the case of the video card, the power supply may not be able to handle a decent card.

5 months ago I formatted Acer Aspire T180 Vista to XP Pro. The reason why was that when I on Vista. I accidently deleted the LAN or modem driver. So I decided to switch with xp. But I realized that it does not install LAN driver automatically. So I ended up getting 1394 adapter on networking panel. I was doing research and tried to download proper LAN driver on my other computer. I remember I downloaded on google and I typed "Acer Aspire T180 LAN driver for XP". I downloaded it from "drivers.softpedia.com/.../Acer-Aspire-T180-LAN-Driver.shtml" It was really easy to install it. When I transfer the files to t180. It had .exe file. So I got a connection. But it always stuck with Google. For example if I insert "www.yahoo.com" It won't transfer to yahoo. I'm still on google page no matter what. even If I browse from google I end up going to Google front page. So I decided to format again to XP. But this time I can't find the driver. I went to Acer website and downloaded LAN drivers. But it does not have exe. driver. So I can't install it. I remember when I looked at the adapter on my networking places. It was something like "Yukon Family ...????" Can you guys help me?

I have had an Acer Apire T180 for a long time, and it is rarely used any more. I was wondering if it would be possible to upgrade its CPU, and add in a graphics card so that it would be suitable for high end gaming? I'm not sure whether this task would be too difficult, or if it would require a change in motherboards? It has an AMD Sempron 3000+, and I would assume it has integrated graphics? Help would be much appreciated?Thanks in advance

I am having trouble with the sound on my computer, as in I have none!

The computer type is an Acer Aspire T180.

I used to have sound and then suddenly one day I didn't and I'm not sure how I lost it. But when I went into the system I had an error message saying that I did not have the correct software to install 'Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus' with a yellow exclamation mark.

I came on here and saw that I needed to download the correct drive, so I went to the Acer website and downloaded the Audio Drive, which in turn downloaded 'Realtek HD Audio Manager.'

When I went back to the system the 'Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus' has gone. I have tried all possible solutions on Windows help but nothing!

Please help! I have been trying to solve this problem for hours and am ready to give up! Any suggestions?

     I have an Acer Aspire T180.  The machine came with an AMD Athlon 64 3800+ 2.4 Ghz processor.  I am thinking about upgrading the processor to an AMD Athlon 64x2 Dual Core 6000+ 3Ghz processor.  I have done some research on the motherboard and it is an ECS MCP61PM-AM motherboard. Looked @ the motherboard on the following sitehttp://www.ascendtech.us/ecs-mcp61pm-am-dual-core-am2-motherboard_i_mb64ecsmcp61pma.aspx In the CPU section it states that the Dual Core processor is supported, but what I am wondering is if I have to upgrade the BIOS as well or will it run fine with the current BIOS on the motherboard.  If I need to update the BIOS, where can I find it.

A:Can I upgrade my Acer Aspire T180 processor

Hi donkeyd The Athlon 64 3800+ processor is a Socket 939 CPU, whereas the Athlon 64x2 6000+ is the newer AM2, so unfortunately are not compatible. You will need to look for a dual core CPU that will fit a Socket 939. Hope this helps!

I'm hoping you can help. Recently purchased and Acer Aspire T180. It has an AMD Athlon 64 X2 4000+ processor, and a gig of ram.

The specs when purchases state it runs at 2.6GHz. When checking the performance through the system info in the control panel it says only 2.1?

I spoke to the retailer, they advised that I would need to deal with Acer, apparently Acer have been putting lower spec RAM in the PCs which is why the Clock speed is slower? (dont know if this is true)

This sounds plausable so I called Acer. They said the memory is fine (DDR2 333) and the only reason it runs at 2.1 is due to configuration in BIOS. Apparently this is easy to change but the guy wasnt allowed to tell me how over the phone incase I destroy my system. Told me to go back to retailer.. grrrrr...

So now I'm stuck.... I dont know the exact specs of the Mother Board as it is sealed and will invalidate warranty if I open the case!!!!

Can anyone help?? Is this an easy change in BIOS. I have changed settings before on another PC, but the BIOS on this PC doesnt seem to have any familiar menu's relating to clock speed of FBus speed.

I'm a little sceptical as I always thought that clock speed will be limited by the max speed of the memory, and at 333, I'm thinking it won't allow the process to run at 2.6..

Lastly, it also only shows as 767MB Ram available. I know this is because it is sharing 256 for video, but I was told that you could remove this RAM allocation som... Read more

I am trying to help a neighbor get her desktop running.  When I got there, it was beeping on boot.  I removed the memory stick (pc2-5300 x 2 gb)
I cleaned it with an eraser with a static bracelet on and re-installed it...It posted but I did not have monitor attached at that point.  I brought it to my house and hooked it up and believe it or not it booted.  She does not even have internet service so I decided to do some windows updates and run some scans.  No problems found. I then installed some used pc2-4200 (2 x 2 gb) to speed it up but it would not post so I replaced the old ram back.  Now I only get BSOD...ox0000008e (0xc0000005,0x81d56F15,ox85EC38c4)
The motherboard looks very clean with no bulging caps...
From my guesswork, I am wondering if the windows updates I downloaded had a video driver that was not compatible.
She is a retired lovely person I would like to help.  I tried safe mode boot with networking with same results.  I ran mem test 86 with no issues.  I also ran a hard drive test that showed no errors.  I put the hd in my system with a usb adapter and all her files are intact.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

So my Acer Aspire 4736G won't turn on for some time now. I've did some researching and reading and I've found out I need to flash the BIOS by formatting a flash drive to FAT and then place the BIOS in it. I've downloaded the BIOS from here and I've extracted its contents. I've placed the files inside the DOS folder onto a 4GB freshly formatted FAT flash drive.

Hi Everyone, I have what seems to be common problem with the Acer netbooks. My battery is not charging even though the computer is new. I have seen in other online forums that I should "flash the BIOS" by downloading a file from the Acer site. I have gone to the site and have found a BIOS file for Acer Netbook Model 725. The file is BIOS_Acer_1.08_A_A. Is this the correct file for flashing the BIOS? When I open the file to search its contents it has a README file that states: "Windows flash: Please click "ZHG108.EXE.exe" to update bios." Questions: (1) Is this the correct file for my computer? (2) Should I simply extract the file on the netbook desktop and then double click to activate it? (3) Will this damage my computer in any way? The site says to use at your own risk. I understand that downloading and execting the wrong file or executing it in the wrong way might disable my system. Is there a safer way of correcting this problem? I've already tried the power button and device manager approaches with no luck. Thanks for any help on this. I just don't want to cause any serious problems. I would like to use my netbook with the battery.  David  

A:BIOS Flash for Acer Aspire One 725-0825 Windows 7.

Hello, I've just flashed my similar netbook's BIOS (mine is Aspire One 722).Original BIOS version was 1.08 and that downloaded from Acer site was 1.1 (1) I don't know but if downloaded from Acer I think yes(2) Mine zip file has 2 folders: 'DOS' and 'Windows'. After unpacking it I went into 'Windows' folder and executed exe file.(3) There is always possibility of damage when flashing but you have to decide by yourself: flash or not. If your new BIOS will not resolve your problem then maybe the battery is damaged?

My boyfriend's computer kept going to the black screen of death. I could go to the Boot order screen, but nothing else. (When I clicked F2 for BIOS settings, it just went back to the black screen of death.) I found that generally a BIOS flash will do the trick, so I started following the instructions. I formatted a memory stick, loaded the files needed and properly named. I turned the laptop off, stuck the memory stick in, held FN & Esc, pressed the power, and let go of FN & Esc. I was super happy when the power button started flashing. Here is where I messed up-big time. I had two sets of instructions that were pretty much the exact same, except one said that when the power light started flashing to push it and the other said not to. I chose the wrong set-I pushed the power button and it shut off. I thought maybe it would come back on in a few minutes by itself, but no luck. So, I went to start it over, thinking this time to not push the power button. But now, it will not turn on at all. When I put the battery in, the battery light shows orange for half a second and then quickly fades away. The same thing happens with the AC adapter. Just to make sure, I also tried with my own battery (same model computer) and AC adapter. Same thing. Tried the non-working computer's adapter and battery on my laptop-they worked fine.

I tried doing what I think is called a drain by taking the battery and adapter out of the non-working computer and holding the power down for... Read more

Hello, I have an Acer Aspire Timeline X 5820TG, with the black screen of death. This happened a few starts after cleaning some virus with MS defender.
I have read that it is most likely a corrupted bios. I have also since ruled out the screen and the cmos battery and clearing the static without the battery.
Apparently after downloading the latest bios upgrade file (ZQ1_122W.executive) Acer support onto a flash drive, I used FN + Esc then the Power button to install the above bios file.
After this failed, I added a notepad with Autorun in brackets and then ( open = the bios e x e )file , as well and saved it as an I N F file, along with the executive bios file and retried. (This is the absolute extent of my coding knowledge).
But so far I have been unsuccessful.
I suspect I am trying to install the wrong bios file, and also installing it the wrong way as well.
The computer shops are just keen to sell me a new expensive replacement laptop, and so not much help there either.
Please, if anyone can help me I would be so appreciative and thankful.

A:Acer Aspire Black screen. Help with bios flash please

I doubt if this is a BIOS issue but it's possible the computer was bricked after a bad flash that you said failed.
What happens when you tap F8 at boot? Do you get the Advanced Boot Options. I am assuming this is Windows 7. You cannot access Safe Mode with Windows 8 or 10 using F8.
Do you need any data on the hard drive? If not, would you be willing to do a factory reset? If you do need the data would you be willing to do a factory reset after recovering the data?
What was the OS that came with this computer?  Was it upgraded to Windows 10?
Do you have another computer you can burn an iso file to CD? I am hoping you can boot a CD or USB flash drive on this computer.

Replaced screen on an acer aspire one happy (aohappy pav70), after which the netbook fails to boot at all.
After much research online this appears to be a common problem with acer aspire one's, resulting in a need to flash the bios to be able to boot again.
There are many tutorials for accessing the bootblock to run a crisis disk across the system but not for this specific model. Most include downloading the bios from acer, copying the .fd files and flashi.exe files to a flash drive, then using the Fn and Esc button whilst turning the system on to start the crisis procedure for flashing the bios. This does not appear to work on this model so am looking for some help.

I recently got Acer Aspire T180 which came with vista installed. I reformatted the harddrive and installed XP onto the system.
The problem I am having is with the video, I go to device manager, and it does not see any softwear for my nevidia geforce 8500 gt. It has the big question mark by it. I have visited the aspire sight and downloaded all drivers that work with xp and have installed them, the chipset drivers even had nevidia screen appear.

The problem I most notice is like when browsing the web, and i scroll down the page, instead of the normal smooth scroll, the screen acts like it goes down a few lines and redraws, quite annoying, any help would be greatly appreciated. I had a freind that bought a similar comp from the same guy who sold me this one, and he had similar problems, vista to xp, but his sys was a bit different, and he eventually found the magic software to fix his problem, I am hopeing that I too can do the same, Thanks.

So i went to look for another then i found this http://sincitylife.net/xpthumbdrive.aspx

When you reach the command line prompt(recovery console), type the following and then press Enter:

Using the expand command as shown above, d represents the drive letter assigned to the optical drive that your Windows XP CD is currently in. While this is most often d, your system could assign a different letter. Also, c:\windows represents the drive and folder that Windows XP is currently installed on. Again, this is most often the case but your system could be different.

If you're prompted to overwrite the file, press Y.

Good Day! Thank you a head of time for all of your help! WHAT: Aspire 5100 QUESTION: Is there any chance of a bios option that will completely unlock all the features of my processor and motherboard? As the laptop is out of warruntee and older it wouldn't hurt ACER to offer an unlocked bios with a disclaimer. Thank you very much,LIOTB

A:acer aspire unlocked bios

What features do you think are locked out by the bios? Jack E/NJ

I recently bought a replacement battery for my Acer Aspire V3-771G and I am getting the "plugged in, not charging" problem. I have contacted the seller that i purchased the battery for and they informed me that the battery is made to work with the newest versions of bios for my laptop, however i updated to windows 10 and there are no compatible bios upgrades for windows 10. Will it work if I upgrade my bios to the windows 8 or 8.1 versions or will it make my computer unbootable?

A:Bios in an Acer Aspire 8942.

Have you tried removing the battery and power supply. Then press and hold the power button to try to reset the bios? Another option is to see if you have a bios re-set jumper pins usually located in the DRAM module compartment on the bottom of the machine --- it should be located somewhere around the periphery of the DRAM module so you shouldn't have to remove the module. Jack E/NJ
