    Acer Aspire 5920G BIOS Problem

    Hi there,

    I've installed XP Profesional (x86) and Vista Ultimate (x86) onto an Acer Aspire 5920G and everything and so far I've not really had any problems until now when I've gone to start it and it simply loads the BIOS pre-boot screen and freezes there; it won't even let enter the BIOS, and doesn't get to the Boot Manager stage.

    Does anybody have any ideas on how to get this problem fixed, PLESDE

    Cheers.

    Re: Acer Aspire 5920G BIOS Problem

    Hi, I know this is an old thread, but i have a machine here, acer aspire 5920g with almost exactly the same problem. After doing some research, I am inclined to suggest that it is a graphics card problem.

    Reference:
    ww.theacerguy.com/forum/topic/acer-aspire-5920g-screen-blinksflickers#post-4809

    The above link suggests that if you replace the graphics card with an ATI card it will solve the problem:

    Howto:

    Source for parts:
    ww.mxm-upgrade.com/5920G.html

    Im planning to do this to the machine here, ill repost if i have results.
    please add http ://w to the front of the urls as i cant post them till i have posted more according to the site, sorry for inconvenience...

    Welcome to HEXUS!

    It is an old thread - and I expect the OP has probably fixed the problem - or junked the laptop by now - but thank you for taking the time to post.
