Hello, I need to flash the bios on my laptop, which has become corrupted. I am advised that it will only flash from a usb FLOPPY.
How do I get my laptop to recognise the drive? The laptop is an ACER Aspire 5520.

If you can't get into the BIOS at all, you won't be able to flash from anything. You'd need to replace the BIOS chip. If you can boot into the BIOS, go to the boot options and make sure USB floppy is in the list.

practically you havent got a chance if you cant boot into bios.
As hang-the-9 said above your best bet is to replace the bios chip if you can find one.
