I have a very annoying issue with the an Acer Aspire A315-21G laptop, I tried to install W10 from usb stick with no success. First I made a couple of sticks using the Windows Media Creation tool but the system restarts automatically when the windows logo appears or I get some funny artefacts. I tried to switch between UEFI (secure boot enable/disable) and Legacy with no success and I tried to make another bootable version using Rufus with MBR or GTP partition but I still can't understand why it's not working, it could be a faulty hardware?
It's the first time when I encounter such problem, I attached two photos with the BIOS version and another one with the funny artefacts on the laptop screen.
FAQ & Answers
I have the same issue with an A315-21G-65UM. I think I tried everything without success, it is possible we need a BIOS update ?
If the screen looks OK in the BIOS menu, then the issue is probably a Windows driver issue, not a BIOS problem.
Hi and I apologize for late reply, unfortunately I don't have access to that laptop anymore.
But in the end the problem was solved somehow ?
So the problem was solved successfully. First of all I downloaded an old windows 10 ( from 2016 January ) , with this the boot seemed ok, after this I downloaded a BIOS update from official Acer website and installed the 1.25 version BIOS. After the installation I downloaded and installed an up to date Windows 10 from Microsoft website. Hope this will help others !
Unfortunately not, he didn't have the patience to resolve the issue and decided to buy another laptop. Another thing that I tried was with BIOS update but I couldn't do it because of an error.
