Anyone done a BIOS flash on Acer Aspire L100 or similar?
Has anyone flashed the BIOS on an Acer Aspire L100 or other similar Acer?
The reason I ask is I'm trying to flash the BIOS on my L100. Acer even has a new version to download from their website. The problem is the BIOS is write protected and I get the message to check the jumper. (I'm still trying to get an answer but still waiting...and waiting..sigh...!)
I've looked on the motherboard and see a jumper to clear CMOS (presumably password protect) but nothing specific to "bios write protect. actually there are three pins with this jumper across two of them. If I remove this jumper and put it across the other one I do get access to a bios setup menue but the BIOS is still protected. Maybe there is something in here to allow me to do it?
So if anyone has any experience on Acer please tell me how I get round the write protect so I can load the new version
