    I got below setting for my acer aspire 4745, but i want correct bios download link for acer aspire 4745 ?

    BIOS Recovery Hotkey:
    The system provides a function hotkey: Fn+Esc, for enable BIOS Recovery process when system is powered
    on during BIOS POST. To use this function, it is strongly recommended to have the ac adapter and Battery
    present. If this function is enabled, the system will force the BIOS to enter a special BIOS block, called Boot
    Block.
    Steps for BIOS Recovery from USB Storage:
    Before doing this, prepare the Crisis USB key. The Crisis USB key could be made by executing the Crisis Disk
    program in another system with Windows XP OS.
    Follow the steps below:
    1. Format the USB storage disk using the Fast Format option.
    2. Save ROM file (file name: JAL90x64.fd) to the root directory of USB storage. Make sure that there is no
    other BIOS file saved in the same directory.
    3. Plug USB storage into USB port.
    4. Press fn + ESC button then plug in AC power.
    The Power button flashes once.
    5. Press Power button to initiate system CRISIS mode.
    When CRISIS is complete, the system auto restarts with a workable BIOS.
    6. Update the latest version BIOS for this machine by regular BIOS flashing process.

    Either use akcent's ready-made file or manually extract the *.fd file from the *.exe using 7-Zip.

    Hi Akcent,

    I downloaded ZQ1x64.fd from new link. Thanks a lot.

    But have confusion, in above steps i.e.

    2. Save ROM file (file name: JAL90x64.fd) to the root directory of USB storage.

    can ZQ1x64.fd will work against JAL90x64.fd or is there any link to download JAL90x64.fd ?

    You first try what I gave you. The file name ZQ1x64.fd is taken from the file itself
