Yes, you either need to use Free DOS to run their DOS flash utility, or check and see if the bios has a built in utility to flash itself.

Many motherboards these days can do that if you point them to the file on a cd or usb flash stick.

Acer recommends that you should only upgrade your firmware/drivers if you have been instructed to do so by an Acer Customer Care representative.

By using these firmware/drivers you agree to accept the possibility of product failure.

Keith, I just Googled this page that seems to talk about your very problem and seems to present a fix, albeit a sort of bass-ackward workaround kind of fix.

But it seems to be targeted specifically at Linux users.

That said, USB thumb drive support would be a nice addition.

There might be a workaround to this problem, though: Discharge the battery completely, if you haven't, Keith. I mean every time the system goes into suspend, hit the power button again to force every last erg of juice out of the battery until nothing happens at all. I don't think there's a Live CD of Windows XP out there, so using that to flash your BIOS may not be possible either.

That means putting DOS on a USB stick and booting from it.

Bear in mind that I have a Windows XP A150 Aspire One.

When I open e Settings Management from Empowering Technology, I see that my BIOS version is v1.02. Choosing the wrong BIOS file may render your system inoperable. Finally my BIOS is v1.10 and I can shutdown and restart my notebook smoothly...

Acer website says that BIOS update is available for my Aspire 4710, so I believe this problem are caused by the outdated BIOS on my laptop. Please close all other applications before updating the BIOS. Flashing the wrong BIOS can cause harm to the system.

And that when I say USB memory, I also mean USB drive.
