Acer Spin 1 Bios brick

DvalkenDvalken Posts: 4Member New User
Hello people, 
Ive got an Acer Spin SP111-31.
I wanted to update the Bios but when te system restarts it gave a black screen and its been like that for 8 hours.
the power and charger light are booth blue but thats it!

I think i miss flashed it! annyone know how to re-flash it?

Thing ive done:
-Download 1st bios update and flached the .bin file from it, put it on USB and tried the Fn-ESC+power combination
-Download last bios update and flached the .bin file from it, put it on USB and tried the Fn-ESC+power combination

I think i do something wrong, Anny suggestions?

NOTE: When power light is on and taking the charder off it makes sound so i thing the screen is just not working but hooking it up to a HDMI screen also resuls in a black screen (its a fanless design so no idea if its really turnign on!)

    Can you trade with the dealer? The problem, is that I'm not sure if they swap the product containing bios problems!

    Hi I also have this problem with mine I was upgrading the bios software because I was not certain why it was not reading the usb on the bios menu because I was trying to install Ubuntu on it . I have tried replacing the RAM I checked everything I wanted to see the if it was a hardware issue but did not see any hardware issues like loose cables . Did the flashing bios method fn+esc and I have the .fd file and not work 
    Please help me Acer.

  • In this case, only Acer can use the .fd file to retrieve the bios.
