You probably shouldn’t update your BIOS, but sometimes you need to.

On Windows 8, it’s more hidden — but you can still launch the System Information panel on Windows 8.
The BIOS version number is displayed on the System Summary pane. Different motherboards use different utilities and procedures, so there’s no one-size-fits-all set of instructions here.
I eventually removed the battery to turn off the computer and restart. I went to the acer site and found some instructions to fix my computer, which said to unplug power cord and remove battery then hold power for 20 sec. By the way, mycomputer is still under warrenty, as it is only less than 6 months old. WPH 6) put this file in the crisdisk project folder 7) Use crisdisk tool to create a bootable diskette and a bootable floppy with the files phlash.exe, and (your bios file) will be created for you 8)Put this floppy in the floppy drive connected to your Acer. Always, always, ALWAYS avail yourself of the warranty. Also, don't forget to either 1) take your HD and memory out before you ship, or 2) at least backup your data, Chances are if you send the notebook intact it will come back to you re-imaged. 10) Push the power button, with the two other buttons still down. All in all it took them a month to get it back to me. Have fun to turn your bricked Notebook to a working machine.
But in case it was just downloading the updates but not applying them at the time of your experiment, nothing will be harmed.
A computer's Basic Input-Output System (BIOS) is embedded software on a motherboard.
Did the BIOS utility finish the update, or did it stop while writing? If it halted while in update, your notebook is bricked and needs to go back to the manufacturer for a new motherboard. If it was before or after the update...there's a chance resetting the CMOS will solve the problem - however, that involves some major dissassembly, and will void your warranty. 11) If the power led start, release the 'Fn'and 'B' button. Your computer will reset itself and start in Windows!! If the booting doesn't succeed, try a different timing on releasing the 'Fn' and 'B' button.
(you get them for little money on second hand auction shops and a clean floppy.) On another pc: 2) Download the your original BIOS version (Definitely don´t use the version that caused the problem. 4) unzip this file on c: 5) rename your BIOS file to BIOS.
