acer aspire V3-372 unlocked advanced page

Hello!

 

I hate laptop bioses, they are way too limited.. Since I have bought this machine I should have full control over it.

I need access to hidden advanced settings on my bios but I cannot since its hidden... Mostly I need to change DVMT-preallocation value for intel GPU.

 

I know they are in there, I have been doing some research, but I hope acer employee or skilled member could help me on this.

 

If it cannot be revealed, I can promise this was the last acer laptop I purchase.

 

I don't care if methods violate warranty. I can always buy a new one.

 

MY laptop is Acer Aspire V3-372(-52SZ)

 

Default bios can be downloaded here

 

and here's the proof that the advanced settings page is actually there.

    Hi there,

     

    Of course the settings are there but no manufacturer will help you to unlock the BIOS of a notebook.

     

    Why do you think these pages exist? https://www.bios-mods.com/

     

    And of course I understand that is frustrating for an advanced user but this is the case for most of the notebooks (I really want you to tell me a company which gaves you an unlocked BIOS, maybe cyberpowerpc...) and most prebuild PC (not prebuild by buying you the components and some company assembles it but labelled desktops).

     

    I yet will need to find a company who gives you access to all the settings in a BIOS for a notebook.

     

    Now to be short: probably you can unlock your BIOS if you will look on other forums who can provide you with instructions (eg the link above) but don't expect that a manufacturer will provide you this help.
