I'm having a big problem and i could really use some help from all the experts here. I recently bought a second-hand Acer Veriton M265 desktop computer so i could play some LAN games with my son. It came with windows 10 x64 pre-installed and everything was working fine. I decided to downgrade the OS to windows 7 and update the computer bios so i downloaded the latest one from acer's page using the SNID on the side of computer. I got to the bios update page ok and downloaded the most recent one and proceeded to update it on windows using the program inside the zip file. It updated ok but when the computer restarted, i got a BIOS checksum error and won't allow me to boot to windows (or any other drive so i could use the old bios again). Apparently everything is working fine and i can enter the bios and check the new version number, change settings etc, but when i restart i get the same error. I tried removing the battery and used a brand new one, but no luck. Can anybody here advise me on what i should do next? Thank you so much for any help on this!
