i have already mentioned this issue a couple of times on different platforms but never got a working solution.
On calling acer for the second time they have told me to update bios to v1.13.
Should i be really updating my BIOS?I don't think that will work anyway.

If you guys recommend updating BIOS please mention a trusted source for doing that if you know any.

If you guys know any other solution for the same, please mention those here.

Thanks in advance.
Hope that helped you.
