I don't know how to instal a BIOS update and don't want to mess it up, could I get advice on that ? I did download the BIOS update from ACER, but I'd like more info on how to get it done!

Thanks again

edit : SOZ 4 doubleposting.

edit : I went straight to the ACER site to dl the latest drivers and it didn't fix the problem. (added +-5seconds to bootup)

Acer no doubt provides explicit instructions on doing a bios update for your particular model.

Here's another idea or a couple:
1. WIN | type disk cleanup | enter key
Be sure to also check the advanced tab but don't let MS delete programs which you seldom use.

2. Download, install, run CCleaner

3. WIN | type msconfig | Enter key | startup tab
Uncheck everything except that which is from Microsoft or Acer or Synaptics. Now Restart your computer. Only re-enable something if you have problems.


Let us know if your system is now running faster.

Those 3 steps have already been done without any real benefit!

edit : that's what acer tells on the website : "Updating an incorrect BIOS may cause harm to your system. We recomend that you only do this after being instructed by one of our Customer Care representatives. By using these updates you agree to accept the possibility of product failure."

That's completely correct, I almost never suggest someone "mess with" the BIOS as the system can/will be ruined forever if done incorrectly.

so what do I do?

edit : K so I'm now looking at the 1.16 BIOS update... How can I know if it's for 64bit or 32bit ?

I just run Winphlash and make sure that the .ROM is V1.16 ?

The bios is for every computers 6920G running any OS...Acer is quite easy on Bios update (i do own one!), run the WinPhlash and that's it. It might reboot aswell. It had sometimes fixed some troubleshootings to update the bios when an upgrade had been made from Vista to Windows 7.

Do you remember which one App/driver had caused the + 5seconds on boot?

I'm reading something on the 1.16 bios update in this site :

Acer 6920G Bios Updated 1.16v released

and it looks like I need to use a bootable USB flashdrive ??

Looks hella complicated


Es-tu certain qu'il faille seulement cliquer sur le .exe comme ça ?
(are you sure that I only have to click on the .exe?)

edit : I'm more concerned about the 3minute extra than the few seconds my new programs delay during startup :P

As an experiment ... disable Eset (in services) and reboot. Is it the same slow boot up?
