How to update bios on acer aspire 4752?????


go to the acer web site, they'll have the bios and the instructions.
follow them precisely as this is a good way to screw up your laptop. but if you do it correctly, it's not terribly hard and has real benefits.

use the support link or download link, find either bios or your model and then the other.


I wouldn't suggest using any beta bios as they sometimes need to have bugs worked out first.

if you do decide to update the bios

Connect a USB flash drive to the USB port on your Acer. Send all of your files and folders to the flash drive for backup purposes.

Take out your flash drive and reboot your machine. Continue to press "F2" on your computer until your BIOS screen comes up. Check the version of BIOS that your laptop contains, write it down and then reboot your machine.

Go to the Web page for Acer support (see Resources). Click on "Drivers and Downloads" and then "Netbooks."

Click "Aspire One" and click the link for the type of Aspire One computer you own. You can locate this data in the documentation that comes with your Acer.

Click "BIOS." Find the latest BIOS version from the download list.

Click on your "Download" link. Right-click this item and then select the "Extract Here" option. When it finishes the extraction process, double-click on your "WinPhlash" file.

Click your mouse on "Browse." Go to your BIOS upgrade folder and click on the file that ends in .wph. Click your mouse on the "Open" option.

Click on "Flash BIOS." Reboot your machine and then push "F2" repeatedly to start your BIOS.

Push the "F9" key and then "Enter." Reboot your Acer to finish the process

be very careful any mishap can totally screw up your computer and make it unuseable
hope this helps

Where do I find a working BIOS file for my Gateway MX6453? The update zip-file being offered at Gateway seem to be missing the new BIOS file named 1208.ROM...


remove the battery get some isopropyl alcohol and qtips and clean the contacts where the battery actually connects to the pc, if that doesn't work it's possible that the IC inside the battery has gone to hell and if that's the case you'll need to purchase another battery.

Gatway 450ROG PC Notebook and i forgot bios passward


Shame on you.

There are password erase programs out there, but they are pretty expensive. Best to take it to a techie who has one, and let them do the dirty work for you. Probably cost you $25 or $30us to have it done.

Bios Battery


What I did was removed all the case screws.and gently pulled the front left corner up.(front left as if you were looking at the screen).
You will need some hook nosed pliers to reach in and pull it out. replace with same size battery.
