    Hello!

    Somebody here who could help to fix my (and others) problem.

    Bios v1.19 worked fine with 4GB RAM.
    Then in v1.20 it only supports 3GB, otherwise no booting (not even enter Bios possible with 4GB installed)

    But we need v1.20 for AMD-Turion Bugfixes and support of newer G1/G2 version processors.
    Mixing 2GB and 1GB is not an option, as we loose dual channel support which makes system really running much faster.

    Request for eliminating over 3GB RAM blocking in v1.20 bios.
    both bios could be found and downloaded directly from acer-euro.
    ftp://ftp.work.acer-euro.com/notebook/aspire_9300/bios/
    ftp://ftp.work.acer-euro.com/notebook/aspire_9300/bios/v1.19.zip
    ftp://ftp.work.acer-euro.com/notebook/aspire_9300/bios/v1.20.zip

    PLEASE HELP, if somebody knows how to - THANKS a lot!

    would you not just add the cpu microcode to the v1.19 bios ?

    you would need to extract it from the new bios and put it in the old bios.
