But fixing the problem hasn't worked yet.
-I grabbed the rar file you mentioned and created the bootdisk, and
placed the .exe and .wph on it.
-Removed power and battery
-Switched both switches on.
-Connected USB floppy drive with bootflop
-Switched the notebook on, with fn+esc pressed
after that nothing happens.....
Well, I have the same problem and i find solution. Try to remove one SoDIMM RAM module. My Aspire 1363LMi originally come with 512MB of RAM (2x256MB SoDIMMs). After upgrade i have 1,2 GB on board (1GB and 256MB SoDIMMs) ant doing above steps nothing happened. I spend a lot of time trying different key combinations and similar solutions like this one: forums. mydigitallife. info/showthread.php?t=2105. Finally i just removed non-original 1GB module, leaving one 256MB and voila - FDD start to read crisis disk and i repaired my Acer. Good luck.
Thanks, andrejusj, you saved my notebook
I had the same problem: After switching number 2 to "on", the PC didn't even try to access the floppy drive anymore.
I also upgraded my RAM, from originally 2x256MB to 2x512MB.
After changing the RAM back to original state, it suddenly worked.
BTW: I found the BIOS 1.14 here:http://www.driversdown.com/drivers/ACER ... 8752.shtml
