Question about Acer PC Desktops

1 Answer

I need a 48 Bit BIOS update for my Aspire 1712SMI Notebook to run a larger HD. Please provide me with a download URL on the ACER web site where I can download it. If you do not have this BIOS, who has a 48 Bit BIOS that is compatible with the Aspire 1712SMI? Thanks in advance, Brian

    Thanks for the info antiochpc. I flashed my bios but it still does not support larger HDs. Are you aware of any other bios updates or software drivers which can be loaded onto an Acer Aspire and used to support larger Ultra ATA 100 HDs?



    Thanks again,

    Brian

Go here. Once here, select notebook, Aspire 1710, then bios. Follow the instructions carefully....a failed BIOS update can render your computer useless.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate this as fixya.

Can not find bios up date for Acer sa80-g97z celeron 2.8 ghz mobo E661gxm-7


In the address bar, after launch, type information. Then select system information. Write down the bios info. Use it for a search. There is nothing about the bios on the support page for the Aspire SA80; they simply list drivers for the machine. No bios identifying information is provided for me to pursue a search. But, scurrying around, I hink the bios for the motherboard is at this address and that may be as updated as it gets. http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Product/Product_Detail.aspx?DetailID=523&MenuID=1&LanID=0 You will find links to the mother board manual and bios there.

I think that is a Celeron D 336 with the motherboard manufactured by Company Elitegroup Computer Systems,ECS 661GX-M7 . The device drivers are available at http://acer.driversdown.com/acer-drivers/s_195_1.shtml

Hi

thank you for your query

Please can you try the following

1) go to www.devicedoctor.com
2) Download and install the device doctor software
3) Once installed open it up and click scan, it will then scan your PC for the best driver
4) Download the driver (entitled VGA driver) and install
5) Restart and see if this cured the issue

Im looking for a free BIOS update as I have just added 1gb of ram and taken out the 512K one. I have an ACER aspire SA80 Desktop PC


BIOS updates are not really necessary unless you're having specific problems. They can sometimes be dangerous to your sysytem to install and not really necessary just because you install new ram. If there is a bios update available for your model it will be at acer's web site. Unless you wanna start learning to fix your own computer and reinstall a lot of software I'd leave the BIOS updates to the professionals.

Cannot update BIOS! Help!


If the web site for this motherboard does not have a bios update to run this cpu then there is no bios.
It might not support Phenom or higher

this is a link to the download and your bios is the last update
http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/desktop/aspire_m5100.html

So just because some one said "update the bios" doesnt mean there is a bios that will run it , I believe that this board will handle a 6000 x2 and that is about it.
Sorry hope this clears things up for you

Aspire T690 memory upgrade trouble


Check the Acer web site and make sure U are putting in the correct type of DDR2 ram. Even though they are called DDR2, there are different types, i.e. 5300, 5600, etc.
