Any Acer aspire A515-51G user updated their BIOS to latest version 1.19(It's saying improve system performance). Are you guys having any issue by updating to this version? or everything is okay? Should i Update? My system is getting much more hot since previous 1.18 update. Please let me know your thoughts. TIA :)

    No issues yet. Seems okay. You can downgrade BIOS(go back to older version)if you face issues. Just install from older setup. If you get error due to older version number do this:
    Run setup
    When u get error,don't close the window,just minimize it if you can.
    Go to file explorer(make sure 'display hidden files/folders' is ON)
    Go to  C:\Users\<Your username>\AppData\Local\Temp 
    There should be the bios setup temporary folder with a different name
    Copy that file and paste it in a different location
    (now you can close setup window which shows version number error)
    In the folder you copied and pasted there will be a configuration file
    Open it using notepad.
    There should be a line with version check=0 or 1 or 2
    Change it to 0.
    Save the file
    Now run this temporary setup(Not the original one)
    It will skip BIOS version check.

    Anything less than 90°C is well within normal range. Ambient temperatures likely are more responsible for any such temperature increases. Thus I advise that you NOT try to make any further BIOS changes. Jack E/NJ

    Unless the machine is has a problem that the BIOS update specifically fixes, it's usually not recommended. What do you mean by "much more hot"? How are you measuring the temperature? And what temperature is it reading? Jack E/NJ

    both gpu  and cpu are crossing 80 degree while gaming. But the gpu should stay under 80, as i played those games before BIOS update. I use msi after burner while gaming.
