I decided to publish this article because I often receive these netbooks in repair almost all with the same defect: the Acer Aspire One ZG5 AOA 110 to 150 does not turn on or suddenly not charge the battery (although it is still efficient).

Inserting a charger the LEDs come on but the netbook does not give other signs of life : no fan noise, no sound from hard disk, no images on the display .

The model Acer Aspire One ZG5 AOA 110-150 is one of the first netbook from Acer products more bodywork was available in different versions, with the hard drive or SSD with card (slow) 8 or 15GB.

Some models had even 3G card as well as WiFi. Sore point of this machine was the display of 7 inches (small) and the slow but can be overcome by installing an SSD recently (only models with SATA connector, otherwise you need to make a change to solder a connector ..).

But back to the most widespread defect of this Acer Aspire One ZG5 AOA 110-150: suddenly he stops the car to start , no sign of life except for the LEDs.

The cause is almost certainly in the BIOS, which is corrupt suddenly. Fortunately, this machine includes a procedure for recovery.

How To Solve The Problem Of The ‘Acer Aspire One ZG5 AOA 110-150

Here’s what we need:

  • Acer Aspire One ZG5 stuck with power;
  • USB stick with at least 16MB: normally I use an old 4GB;
  • The latest BIOS file taken from the site ACER for this machine; for convenience you can download a versionBIOS_Acer_3310_A_AOA110 & from my site .

WARNING : the if your machine has a different theme, that is not a AOA110 or AOA150, this file may not be correct and might corrupt the PC forever!

  • HP Format Tool : to format a USB stick for this purpose. You can find it HERE ;
  • Another working PC to work;
  • A little patience ..

How to proceed:

– We work on another PC, download the BIOS and the HP Format Tool from links above;

– Using HP Format tool we format the USB stick in FAT32;

– Unpack the zip file containing the BIOS and let’s move in coming folder Dos_Flash : we will find within the file that interests us and that is 3310.fd .

– Copy the files 3310.fd newly formatted on the stick and rename it in  ZG5IA32.fd   (first part capitalized and ‘fd’ in lower case)

– We connect the Acer ZG5 to the power outlet and make sure it is turned off : ie no LED must be absolutely turned on.

– We insert the USB key previously prepared in one of the USB dell’Acero ZG5;

– Now press for 5-7 seconds on the keyboard button ‘ Fn ‘  with the key ‘ Esc ‘and meanwhile press the power button .

Holding down these two buttons together and releasing them after 5-7 seconds – if everything goes the right way, the green LED will flash and the LED on the USB also give signs of life (though of course the USB stick has a light) indicating that theWRITING BIOS process is running.

This process may take a few minutes (less than 10): It is important that during this process :

– Do not press any buttons;

– Do not turn off the machine in any way;

– Do not touch absolutely the USB stick;

If all goes well the machine automatically restarts at the end of the process!
If the process does not go to fruition try again: often fails on the first try, or file Bios is not the correct one for your car or still – and is the most likely – you have successfully created the USB stick.

In case of failure of advice:

– To try inserting the key into a different USB port;

– To try to format the key in fat32 directly with a Windows PC, without the tools HP;

– To check that the file name is correct;

– To check that the file is suitable for use in machine;

– To try a different USB key (by brand, model and capacity);
