But the screen remains black. I will find rufus and start over. Let the unit run and after approximately 1-7 minutes, the unit should reboot. Good to have another happy bunny around.
And when I visit your forum about the flash bios, Im wondering if you can help me out to flash my xps bios. It might be worth adding the note in there to save a great deal of frustration in the future. Press and Hold down the Fn and the Esc keys together. Then you have to mount your partions to a folder. Any advice would be helpful helpppppppppppppppp Karl said. I also tried updating to the latest verson of syslinux 4.
After switching off the aa1, when trying to turn it on again, it just shows blinking leds and the fan is turning. For a nerve-wrecking 2 hours I was sure my hard drive had a failure that ate up all my data. I was so upset when I found my acer in this condition. You can then exit with ctrl + X. I still have my files.
Try checking if it's launching a window manager by looking at your xinit. I think I really mess it up this time. I have also tried setting up autoexec. Start the restoration process: A. I am very grateful and thank you very much! If possible show us a Screenshot of partitioning visible in Disk Management. I think only upto 2gb.
Then replacing battery, plug and attempting to restart. Not all usb devices work. And you can use Disk Management to see what partitions are present and if your Install partition is set active.

After rebooting some lights came on, but nothing on the screen, not even the backlight. I did not get notification of your response. I was getting the hal. At this point, the power light should be blinking and you should still have the black screen of death. But the power light doesn't flash, and if I continu E to hold the two buttons down a loud beeping will sound from the computer all the while maintain a black screen. These instructions got me 90% of the way there! I was working a lot at the time, so I didn't have time to invest in a fix. I only had to rename 3309.
