Good day all ,
I have come across a very strange laptop that has been giving me issues in all aspects.
According to my bios it's a Travelmate P255
However if I add in the serial number that's on my bios or use the software that Acer supplies to get the serial number it doesn't pick it up. The main issues I have are the following
CPU Genuine Intel 0000 0.8 GHz ( What is that ? ) According to all the posts this machine came out with i3,5 or 7 ...
Second issue is the bios update I cannot find a bios update for this machine according to Acer the latest bios is 2.17 ok but it doesn't allow me to upgrade the bios because my bios is v0.12T4
The reason for the need of upgrading my bios is because I keep on having conflict drivers with my hd8750 that is installed in the machine and then when I get the code 43 the machine gives me really funny lines on startup and goes back to normal when in windows.
I reinstalled Windows several times to try and pinpoint the issue but as soon as the second update comes through my hd8750 bombs out.
Windows 10 Pro 64 bit
CPU 0000 0.8ghz to 1.6ghz
