Aspire V3-772G. BIOS downgrade

Hi all,

after installing the 1.15 version of BIOS my FAN is working almost constantly. Is it any way to downgrade back to version 1.13?

Will, f.e., complete reset to factory settings help?

Thanks a lot and a good day,

Alexander

    It is a bit difficult to predict whether downgrading your BIOS will resolve the issue with the fan, but still, if you wish to go for it, you can refer to the steps below:
    Important: Making changes in BIOS improperly may cause damage to the computer. It is recommended to take professional technical assistance wherever necessary.
    1. Go to http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/drivers

    2. Type Aspire V3-772G in the box below "Search by Product Model" and click "Search"
    3. Click on your model number from the list that comes up.
    4. Once the details about your model are displayed, select your current operating system appropriately from the drop-down menu besides "Operating System".
    5. Now, go to "BIOS" tab and download the BIOS version 1.13 on your system.
    6. Follow the on-screen instructions to install the downloaded BIOS version 1.13.

    I tried it already. Bios 1.13 let me not install, when 1.15 is already installed!

    Yes you can downgrade your bios, look at this topic:

    The solution for downgrading the BIOS is as follow.  Unpack the VA70V108.exe with something like WinRar or 7-Zip and then in the platform.ini find "[Bios_Version_Check]" and change "flag=1" to "flag=0" after that save the ini file and run the InsydeFlash.exe as administrator. Thats how I have downgraded my BIOS.

    Hello I got the real solution to this problem, do a custom install and install all but the ....microsoft media foundation decoders....... I installed one by one abd tried video from webpage and videos from windows player and started with the basic drivers to have the aero glass image and after every new single instalation when I got to the .......microsoft media foundation decoders....... my computer started crashing, I uninstalled this feature and all is working perfectly!!!! THIS IS THE REAL SOLUTION TO THIS ISSUE, with the steps here it disable my aero glass and the resoltion was'nt more than 1024 768 and could not use aero glass option, it was not having these drivers installed. If some have it working correctly and fully with these steps good, if not this solution I found is the correct detection and elimination of the problem...

    I followed the instructions to donwgrade my bios by extracting the .exe file.

    Now Insideflash tells me 'There isn't any rom file in this directory'.
    Any ideas?
