Windows 7: Bios update available which ones :/

Windows 10 Pro. 64/ version 1709 Windows 7 Pro/64
 
 

My first thoughts are.

1. Are you having a problem that indicates a bios flash is needed?
2. Does that bios flash info indicate that it is for the said problem?
3. Just because their is a new bios does not mean your system needs or wants it.

I personally don't update bios (flash) unless I have a problem I can't fix another way and the bios update is specific to my problem.

Looks like We're using the wrong symbol this / instead of this \ oops,

Well Bear I'm not really having any issue but never updated them after re-install a few weeks ago,
On the list of bios updates I believe I was using the other update released I believe on month 12...2009

Well this is what's on the flash drive,
So I guess the second folder is included inside the larger one,

Might also need to see how to backup the existing bios and recovery methods before

So many different Versions of Acer BIOS ... Jack made a very valid point though BIOS updates should only really be considered if one is having problems ...

Yep I was just looking into that,
I doubt I'll get any support answers on that on a 5 y.o. system beside a referral to a third party support company "not free" to ask or ask on their questions community :/

The only thing Acer on this machine is the bios
Clean install wiped out everything else
