Acer Aspire Blank Screen Argghh….

Yesterday i got a broken laptop from my customer to service. This time it wasn’t broken because of virus or power failure or any hardware problem. But this time when you turn it on it only show Black Screen of Death. The laptop type is Acer Aspire 4730Z. After i google it a while i found that many people experience the same issues.

I don’t want to comment that Acer brand is a good laptop or not. You decide it by yourself. I just want to help you to fix it, but you need a little luck and pray :p

1. Download the latest bios update from Acer website.
2. Extract it, make sure that it have DOS folder inside.
3. Get your USB Flashdisk and make it bootable.
4. Copy BIOS update from DOS folder to flash disk
5. Plugin your USB to the laptop
5. Plugin your power source (Laptop in OFF mode)
6. Press Fn+Esc then hold Power Button then release power button
7. After 5-7 second it the Power button will blinking red
8. Release Fn+Esc
9. After that don’t touch anything, it will take approx 20 minutes.
10. If you success it will restart automatically
11. And your laptop will come back.
