Question about Gateway 450ROG Notebook
CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT VERSION OF WINPHLASH IS NEEDED TO FLASH THE BIOS ON A GATEWAY 450ROG AND WHERE I CAN FIND IT? I HAVE SEARCHED THE INTERNET AND CANNOT FIND WHICH VERSION IS NEEDED. GATEWAY WILL NOT TELL YOU WITHOUT A LARGE FEE.
THANKS FOR YOUR ATTENTION TO THIS MATTER!
Here is the web address where you can get the latest bios update :

Tips for a great answer:
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
