Check the .BAT files for ¨following lines

------ something like this ----->>>

:BATTCHK
..\f44 ..\Egret.f01 ##ac&dc
IF ERRORLEVEL 1 GOTO OK
IF ERRORLEVEL 0 GOTO NOACDC
GOTO END

:NOACDC
ECHO.
ECHO AC must be plugged in and battery capacity should be over 30%%
GOTO END

:OK
..\phlash16 /x /s /c /mode=3 %BBL% %EXTRAFLAG% %ROMFILE%
goto END


------ something like this ----->>>


And "REM" out the batt check and make it go to bios update (OK) like this

:BATTCHK
REM ..\f44 ..\Egret.f01 ##ac&dc
REM IF ERRORLEVEL 1 GOTO OK
REM IF ERRORLEVEL 0 GOTO NOACDC
GOTO OK

You tried with the win flasher ? Try the DOS one (make a bootable floppy or usb stick that's "clean", google how to make one)

ftp://ftp.work.acer-euro.com/notebook/aspire_5560/bios/

REM out the

ACERACDC
if errorlevel 255 goto FLASH
goto end


part

REM ACERACDC
REM if errorlevel 255 goto FLASH
REM goto end


from the bios.bat file you use in dos or just use the phlash16 /x /s /mode=3 /bbl AG1-128.wph command from that dos bat(ch) file. 8O


Edit - Fixed the OP's link. KW

Hello m8,

I got the battery back.
I have followed your instructions and get the following error:

phoenix phlash16 error
file open failed on ag1-128.wph
press any key to continue.

i hope u can still help me.
I downloaded the file from xxx.work.acer-euro.xxx/notebook/aspire_5560/bios/

my current bios is already v128.

i have tried running it from:
1. bios.bat
2. phlash16 /x /s /mode=3 /bbl AG1-128.wph command from that dos bat(ch) file
3. phlash16

any help is greatly appreciated.
