acer aspire unlocked bios

LIOTBLIOTB Posts: 3Member

Good Day!


Thank you a head of time for all of your help!


WHAT: Aspire 5100


QUESTION: Is there any chance of a bios option that will completely unlock all the features of my processor and motherboard?


As the laptop is out of warruntee and older it wouldn't hurt ACER to offer an unlocked bios with a disclaimer.


Thank you very much,

    What features do you think are locked out by the bios?

    Hello Jack,



    thank you for your response!


    Well, most things are grayed out or not there as they would be in a bios of a computer I built myself. For instance to chose how many cores, steping, and how much shared memory.

    Wow, 4bigana!


    that was super generous of you! You went far, far beyond the call of duty!


    That I know will help a lot of people on the future. However, I appologize for not being clear - it's not a passward problem it is bios programing that is the problem. OEM bios are very limited and it would be nice to have a complete bios with all the options.


    Again thank you so very much!
