Hi all, I have not done any mods to my BIOS and don't intend to, but am trying to upgrade my Acer Aspire E1-431 laptop's processor. Currently it has a Pentium dual-core B950 @ 2.10Ghz. I know a Core i5 can be directly swapped onto the motherboard and work, but it requires a BIOS update. I've been trying to get the BIOS to update from 1.29 to the later 2.18 version the new processor requires, but keep running into errors. I'm trying the tricks found here (I can't post links as I don't have 5 posts yet, so just add http:// to the front of this): catchtito.blogspot.com/2013/05/how-to-update-to-2x-bios-from-1x-bios.html ...but can't seem to get it to work. Changing the things suggested there in the ZQS_218.exe BIOS installer program doesn't work, and when I extract it, I can find platform.ini, but NOT a BIOS .bin file...? Can anybody provide me with any ideas to get the BIOS updated in this so I can use my later processor? Cheers and thanks!
