I am trying to fix my Acer Swift 3 (SF314-41). The previous user had viruses on it and gave it to me. I am trying to fix it. When powering on normally I get to "Automatic Repair" screen, which loads for a bit then goes to a black screen. I tried booting from a USB, same black screen. I tried ALT + F10 combo: same black screen after loading. It is NOT a graphics issue, as I can see the Acer logo, spinner, and can access the bios.

I have also tried a CMOS reset (5 seconds, and 30 seconds). I have tried every combination of power cycles (30 seconds, 2 minutes, 15 seconds, 3x reboots). Nothing changes.

My theory is that it is a corrupted bios, however there are NO available bios for this model online. The current bios is: InsydeH20 Rev 5.0 (v1.04).

Can someone tell me which bios is compatible to flash to my device? Or another solution, that I haven't tried already.

Thank you very much
