OMG ... i was completley distraught. i bought my ACER ASPIRE LAPTOP 6months ago when i was trveling in italy ,im in austarlia. I use it torun my online game ; » www.themafiawarz.eu - and has all my files.
When i got the black screen o death i first am here to the boards finding nothing i was further distraught..
I AM HAPPY TO TELL YOU MY FRIENDS, that i am typing this on my lil baby
Heres what you do....
* you need usb disk drive
* a second computer with internet access (can be work cafe friends place)
* a file you can download from acer or search yourself called ZGIA32.zip
Formatyour drive in fat (*note i tried fat as directed in a number of manualsthough then tried fat32 and it worked then though suggest you try fatfirst *shrug)
open zip file and copy 3309.fd and the fla.exe to the usb stick
rename 3309.fd to ZGIA32.fd
Turn off your laptop making sure that both battery and power supply is plugged in and attach the usb stik/drive.
holddown FN and ESC keys and press the power button, continue to fold FNand ESC keys for 7-10 secs then release - at this point the power lightshould be blinking and you should still have the black screen of death.
press the power button once while its blinking - this will initiate a bios update * DO NOT PUSH ANYTHING AFTER THIS
After 2 mins the aspire should reboot itself , wait for about 7mins if it dosent before rebooting manually
Took me three attempts as i just wasent doing something right though TA DA!!!!!
and i still have my files. yeah team take this and run, hope you havent spent money yet

You may have to remove and reset the HDD and Memory on the unit.
Next, you will recv. the F-2 to continue or F-12 to enter setup.
Enter setup and change date and time.
Save and try.
You may have a damaged HD or boot partition and reloading the operating system will be necessary.
Reseating the HD will assure that you have a good connection and the same with the memory.
Also, if the unit has been dropped, you may have a damaged HD and may need to change it.

1. Turn the Laptop off
2. Remove the battery
3. Disconnect the AC adapter from the laptop
4. Disconnect any peripheral devices from the laptop such as printer usb cables, PCMCIA cards etc.
5. Push and hold the power button for 60 seconds then let go
6. Connect the AC adapter to your laptop
7. Push power button to turn on the laptop
8. If this resolves the issue shutdown the laptop connect the battery and turn laptop back on
If issue is not resolved restart the computer and begin tapping the F8 key repeatedly until you see a screen that gives you options to enter different modes. Highlight "Safemode" and press enter. If the computer boots completely into safemode you likely have a driver that has corrupted or a hardware device that has failed. Likely driver failures are video card drivers. Got to Device Manager and uninstall the video card driver and restart the system. You can do this with other drivers as well.

If you wait too long and the operating system logo appears, continue to wait until you see the Microsoft Windows desktop. Then shut down your computer and try again.
I hope this answers your question!
