Tried to update using download from Acer and it shut down 80% of the way through the update for no apparent reason. Now it won't boot. Have keyboard lights and fan noise, but screen remains black, and nothing happens from there. I've seen some old posts especially regarding the Aspire One where you could put an .fd file (a BIOS file) on a flash drive and hold Fn + Esc and it would replace the BIOS that way so you could boot again. Tried that with my M5-481PT but no success. And I haven't found any instructions for the M5-481PT (or any other M5) anywhere. Anyone have any ideas? I'm totally stuck at this point.
