I have this Aspire 6530G that doesn't start up. When I press the power button it turns on blue light, HDD spins, fan spins, black screen and after about ~5 seconds it restarts and does the same thing, over and over again.

After about a week of researches over the internet and reading lots of identical situations with other people, I've came to the conclusion it has a bad BIOS flash.
I've read many tutorials/instructions on how to flash a BIOS using a flash drive. I have everything set, but the problem is that i need the BIOS file which should be in format .WPH .
From what I've understood, I am supposed to extract this file using WinRAR or 7-ZIP out of the BIOS file (called ZK3_3303W ) that I've downloaded from the Acer website. When I open ZK3_3303W.exe using WinRAR/7-ZIP, I can't see any .WPH file. What I see are 3 files called .text, .rdata, .data and a folder called .rsrc which contains other 3 folders. I checked every file and folder in there, no .WPH file.
I've also searched the internet directly for this .WPH file, without any luck. I don't know what I'm missing here...

If anyone could give me a little help I would really, really appreciate it.

On Acer website I can see only 3303.
When I get from work later today I'll try searching for 3223 on Internet.
I would really appreciate if you are kindly enough and meanwhile give me a link from where I can get it.
EDIT:
Oh nvm, I managed to find all the BIOS versions right on the Acer website. There was this little button for showing latest/all files.:)
