BIOS Flash Utility

The BIOS flash memory update is required for the following conditions:

  • New versions of system programs
  • New features or options
  • Restore a BIOS when it becomes corrupted. Use the Flash utility to update the system BIOS flash ROM.

NOTE: If you do not have a crisis recovery diskette at hand, then you should create a Crisis Recovery Diskette before you use the Flash utility.

NOTE: Do not install memory-related drivers (XMS, EMS, DPMI) when you use the Flash.

NOTE: Please use the AC adaptor power supply when you run the Flash utility. If the battery pack does not contain enough power to finish BIOS flash, you may not boot the system because the BIOS is not completely loaded.

Fellow the steps below to run the Flash.

  1. Prepare a bootable diskette.
  2. Copy the flash utilities to the bootable diskette.
  3. Then boot the system from the bootable diskette. The flash utility has auto-execution function.

    Copy the flash utility... From where? Acer doesn't have any instructions included with the Bios utility for the Acer Aspire 5535. And with a blank screen, thanks to Acer's pathetic BIOS (to match their machines) I can't run the BIOS "utility" available on their support site. The Flash utility has auto-execution... I've looked for the "fd" file and the specific ROM or WPH file that belongs to the Acer 5535. "Auto-execution?" That has to be the dumbest thing I've read in 3 days of looking. I will never recommend an Acer computer to anyone. In fact, I'll make a point of recommending against it.
