I updated the bios on my acer travelmate 2700 laptop, the procedure appeared to work without errors using the supplied update program for windows, the laptop shut down when it had finished. I followed the instructions to the letter but the laptop will no longer boot up.
When I switch it on I hear a long beep followed by two short beeps, my friend tells me that this means that the bios is corrupted. After the beeps the hard drive spins up and the access light flashes for a second then nothing else happens. The screen is always blank.
My friend told me that on older laptops with floppy drives that you could reflash the bios blind by using a bootable program on a floppy but he doesn't know if this is possible on laptops with cd/dvd drives.
Is there anyway I can reflash the bios on this laptop myself without sending it away for repair?
Thank you in advance for you help!
