I open the acer bios update program for vista in xp, I did not tell it to update but my computer locked up. I tried the three finger salute. I tried holding down the power button but nothing worked. So I unplugged the ac power and then the battery. Since then the laptop will power on there is no display, it does not seem to be reading the HD. It reads the cd drive and I have tried to blind repair the bios but it has not worked. I also do not have a backup of the bios. It is an acer 5050-3242. I dont know what to do and I just bought this laptop and I did not have it for two hours.
