How do i do a Bios update for my Acer Aspire X3995
first you need to check your BIOS version, then
and click on BIOS
then read this and download the correct BIOS version:
How can i understand which version i need to download?
Laptop versions:1.xx can only be updated using 1.xx versions2.xx can only be updated using 2.xx versions (normally 2.xx version are labeled "not for upgrades") Desktop versions:P01.xx can only be updated using P01.xx versionsP11.xx can only be updated using P11.xx versions (normally P11.xx version are labeled "*not for upgrades")
"L" BIOS versions are Linux OS dedicated (example P01.xxL) * what does it mean "not for upgrades"?During the windows 7 to 8 transition, some PC models had different BIOS versions from factory, related to the installed OS.Windows 8 PC got an UEFI BIOSWindows 7 PC got a "Legacy" BIOS
So PC with Windows 7 installed from factory can't use the "not for upgrades" BIOS version, even if they were upgraded to Windows 8 or 10, since the factory BIOS was a different version compared to PC with Windows 8 from factory.
unzip the downloaded file, browse to WIN folder of the unzipped files and run the flash.bat file
