Acer :: Aispire 5315- How Can I Make A Cd To Upgrade My Bios

May 18, 2009

I have a Aispire 5315. I would like to upgrade my bios in DOS to 1.33 before I install a T9300 CPU. The size of the 1.33 bios is 148,000 bytes so I can't put it on a floppy and the zip files is also bigger than 1457664 bytes.

I prefer not to upgrade in Windows although I see many using winflash. Where is this file located.

Acer :: 5315 Upgrade

Apr 8, 2009

I m thinking to upgrade my 5315 acer aspire too but I read a lot in this forum and around and i m still not 100 percent sure...

So clearly : do all the 5315 are upgradable...?

Acer support website is clear enough not to confused version or model... so why some users report bios flash problem on some 5315?

I m quite excited to upgrade but also anxious of course...

My acer is a Acer Aspire 5315-202G12Mi (by the way what does "202G12Mi" means?)

Acer :: 5315 Memory Upgrade

Jun 22, 2009

I've just completed a CPU upgrade on my 5315 (to a T7300, which took 15 minutes!). I'm now thinking of upgrading the memory from my current 2GB @ 667 MHz (with the new CPU the memory runs at 667 MHz rather than 533 MHz with the old CPU) to 2GB @ 800 MHz.

However, I've read that the performance increase between 667 MHz and 800 MHz is very little, thus, it's not worth spending the money, even if it is only $AUD40.

Can anyone provide any input, benchmarks or experiences?

Acer :: 5315 And SATA II Drive And CPU Upgrade

Jun 15, 2009

My setup is as follows:

Acer 5315-201G08Mi
Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 550 @ 2.00GHz (Socket P)
TOSHIBA MK8046GSX
Intel GL960 chipset
IO chip being 82801HBM (ICH8-M).
2G DDR2 533 ram
Vista Home Basic
MB - ICL50

I've noticed that the supplied Toshiba SATA II drive is running in SATA I mode and not SATA II even though the controller chip supports SATA II.

Perhaps the BIOS has disabled SATA II?

In addition, I'm keen to upgrade the CPU to a T7300, I assume if I follow the directions on this site, everything should work fine? Any known problems with this model?

Acer :: Aspire 5315 MXM Graphics Upgrade

Jul 17, 2009

This is my Aspire opened up

This is a close up where you can see that we can paste a MXM socket (230 pin's)

Now, if I paste a MXM soket it would look like this

But...

If I introduce a graphic card into this new port added by "me". Will my software recognice it?

The bios an windows can sopport it?

I know problems about heat (can be solved) but the important thing is the bios recognition and how to disable x3100 default integrated graphics right?

Hoping to upgrade my daughters 5315 from a celeron 530 to a core 2 duo. So many pages about doing this but my main question is which processors will it accept. CPUID says its a mPGA478 socket but not sure about the chipset whether 960 or 965. Already upgraded to latest bios 1.45.

Acer :: Upgrading The BIOS Of My 5315

Feb 26, 2009

Ive been reading the threads here on NBR, and i think the answers to all my problems lie in a BIOS upgrade.

Im using windows XP and have BIOS version 1.27

I went to acers website [url] to downlaod the bios but there is nothing in the windows xp section, all bios versions are in the vista section.

what now?

can i use the vista bios? also what is the winflasher, is it safe? are there any safer alternatives to it?

Acer :: 5315 Bios Settings

Sep 27, 2008

I just upgraded my 5315 to 2 gigs ram. Now I would like to increase my video memory to more than 8 mb. Doesn't seem to be a way to do that.

Now that I have more memory, can I not? use more of it for my graphics. 8 meg isn't much memory

Acer :: Bad BIOS Flash On Aspire 5315

May 21, 2008

Second time this has happened. I've downloaded the BIOS update from Acer's website.

Closed all programs, disabled the antivirus and went to flash it. Right after clicking start I get a Verify Error and the sytem freezes and is a dead unit. First time this happened they tried to tell me it was something like $150 to fix even though I did everything right. Now I went to do it again, same thing. Now Acer is telling me it will cost $450 to fix it. It's only 3 months old. They are also saying they are not responsible for anything downloaded from their web site.

So, couple questions. Has anyone successfully flashed their BIOS to 1.34? Does anyone know where you can buy motherboards cheap?

Acer :: Aspire 5315 Failed BIOS Update

Nov 9, 2009

I attempted to update the BIOS in my Acer Aspire 5315 laptop to no avail, the winbios program froze straight away, while erasing the BIOS I think. So since then I havn't been able to start the laptop, no fans, but does blink a red LED beside the little light icon when left for longer than 10 seconds or so when you press the power button. I've tried the fn+esc method to boot it to flash the bios but nothing at all, tried it with USB and CD-ROM. I've tried removing all the hardware and starting it, I've also tried resetting the CMOS, still no luck.

I'm thinking that the red LED might be a little indicator of hope, or is it maybe the capacitor filling up

Acer :: 5315 Upgrade Drive Clone To Larger Drive

Oct 2, 2008

I gained a lot of information from the 5315 CPU Upgrade Thread. I'd particularly like to thank BigOzone, Hoggie and Quilty997. There are many others but information from the above formed the basis of my upgrade.

Other information I've collected from other parts in the forum.

The specification of the laptop was as follows.

Acer Aspire 5315
Celeron 550 2.0Ghz (eek)
1gb of Ram
Vista Home Basic (double eek)
Atheros Wireless Card
80Gb Toshiba Hard Disk

The new Specification is.

Core2Duo T7500 2.2Ghz 800 Mhz Front Side Bus 4Mb Cache
3Gb of Crucial Ram
Vista Home Basic (No Choice At the Minute)
Intel 4965 AGN Wireless Card
200Gb Hitachi Hard Disk

The CPU Upgrade I won't actually cover, not necessary when there is a fantastic sticky at the top of this forum. The Upgrade took about 15 minutes, but the actual swap took about 5 minutes or so, I was very anal about cleaning the heatsink and applying AS5. I think the biggest scare was the door unerneath, quite tricky to get off and put back on without damaging the tabs.

My main focus is the hard drive swap, whilst maintaining all the eRecovery software. For this I use Acronis True Image Home, I am aware that the trial can be downloaded or users obtain by other means, can I just say BUY IT as it only cost me 17 from Amazon.co.uk and as usual it was cheaper in the US. The biggest reason for buying is that some features are not available in the trial. I also bought a Laptop SATA External Drive Holder and boy was I glad I did......................

I have a problem with the bios upgrade on my Aspire 5920G.

I have downloaded from Acer's site the 3813 version and i try to use it with winphlash, the program that is in the folder when i unzip.

I have always an error message, the one in the printscreen.

Yes, i have opened the program with administrator privileges, the same message pops out.
I think that the problem is that i have Windows 7 Ultimate x64.

Acer :: BIOS V3238 UPGRADE For 6930G

Nov 29, 2009

I am looking for advice on upgrading my BIOS from v0.3204 to v3238. Current Laptop Setup:

Original BIOS v0.3204

Acer 6930G - T6400, 4GB DDR2 and 9600MGT 1GB Graphics GPU.
Plus the usual Hidden Acer Recovery Partitions.

I am currently using VISTA SP2 32bit but I plan to soon install Windows 7 64bit FULL CLEAN INSTALL.

The global acer website currently doesn't list my current BIOS (v0.3204) but does list a new BIOS of v3238 released NOV 2009.

Questions:

1. Is my laptop compatible with BIOS v3238 ?
2. Is it worth upgrading the BIOS to v3238 ?
3. Is BIOS v3238 needed for Windows 7 - 64bit to run better
4. Will VISTA SP2 still work with BIOS v3238

Additionally, if you look in the acer Bios zip file there is also a DOS folder containing the file zk2_3238.exe (eg DOSzk2_3238.exe).

5. Is it therefore best to create a DOS Boot USB DISK and Flash the Bios using the DOS EXE given above (since I have heard bad things about windows flash)?
6. And finally, once the new Bios v3238 has been flashed/upgraded, do you need to do anything else for the Laptop to function as an Acer Laptop (eg will it recognise everything)?

Acer :: Crisis Recovery CD, AS5520 Failed BIOS Upgrade

Dec 30, 2009

I have an ACER Aspire 5520, (model ICW50) with AMD Turion TK55. I tried to upgrade it with the BIOS available under the model's specified page in ACER site, version 1.33 (IC50133.WPH).

Unfortunately I was naive enough to try flash32.exe, which is the windows base version of the flashing program; now I have a dead BIOS. Windows froze completely, I had to unplug and disconnect battery to have it down, and it never came up.

Then I did a lot of research and I found and browsed hundreds of pages about Crisis Recovery Mode (CRM). From all I read there are some misconceptions I want to get past:

1 - Deal with different CRM versions, which get accessed by Fn+B, or Winkey+B; on my case I have found that CRM gets accessed with Fn+Esc.
I know it, because instead of powering up and then dying in 3 or 4 seconds on an eternal loop, when I press and hold Fn+Esc and then I connect the power adapter (with battery disconnected), I get a quick orange flash under the power button. So, when I press the power button the computer keeps running, fan is running, and it is checking HD and CD-ROM drives.

2 - There is a lot of myth about the way one has to press and hold Fn+Esc. You just have to press it before you connect the power cable. As long as you get the quick orange flash under the power button, you know the PC is in CRM. I have done all the fancy combinations of holding those keys down, but it all ends up in the same. By the way, even if you connect the battery, instead of the power adapter, once you are holding Fn+Esc it gives the same result: orange flash, you are in CRM. Of course you do not want to flash it using the battery, that's why the emphasis on connecting the power adaptor instead.

3 - Most of the info I found about this matter then turns to building the Crisis Recovery Disk (a floppy) or a CR pendrive. It does not solve my problem because when in CRM, the computer completely ignores the USB ports, the 4 of them, I tried one by one, be it with 2 different kinds of USB floppy drives, or pendrives duly formatted in FAT. There is no blinking of light on either. There is no attempt at all to access any of the USB ports......................

Acer :: Can I Upgrade The BIOS Of My Gateway EC1435u ( 1410-2285)

Nov 11, 2009

Today I received my Gateway EC1435u (Acer 1410-2285 clone) and it's VERY nice but it's too bad the screen is so darn reflective.

Anyways, two quick questions:

1) Are there any BIOS updates available? Acer shows a bunch but Gateway's site doesn't list any.

2) Can I delete the first OEM reserved partition? I'd like to install Windows 7 from scratch because I don't need all the bloatware that Gateway installed

Acer :: HDD - With Aspire 5315

Nov 26, 2008

I got a problem with my Acer Aspire 5315. The HDD is shown in the bios but won't show in Vista most of the time. The HDD is completely formated, including the Acer partition. So recovery is not an option.

The problem is strange because it is not consistent. Sometimes I am able to acces the drive and install Vista. But then the next day,when i try to boot again, i only see a cursor after the Acer boot screen.

I've tried running in IDE mode. I also tried replacing the HDD with a new one. I installed vista with the correct Intel driver.

I also tried running Linux live cd. It also sees the HDD drive correctly but when i try to acces it, the program freeses.

I'm affraid something is wrong with the I/O controller, or it is a loose cable.
If you think otherwise, please let me know. If not, i'd like to know how I can check the HDD cable.

Acer :: 5315 Overheating

Every so often my laptop shuts down. Like it seems after it comes back from a sleep session the fan doesnt come back on. I had to replace the hard drive in it once because I think it fried from getting to hot. I don't know whats wrong with it. I had a cool pad, but it didnt keep it to cool. Is there any fixes, or fans I could put in it to keep it cool? Or even drill any holes anywhere to cool it down? its an acer 5315 model.
