spam

Just had spam to my 'old' wimbios email address (just changed it). That specific email address was created purely for this site and has never been given out anywhere other than to register on this forum.
I suggest you check your security as it's clearly not sufficient.

Re: Aspire 9300(-3375)

Well if you fancy trying it, v.1.19 does work with 4GB. Just FYI, if you weren't aware, the reason Acer didn't warn of the 4GB RAM non-support in v.1.20 is because the 9300 was never meant to support 4GB in the first place: http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/notebook/0000/Acer/Aspire9300/Aspire9300sp...

Re: Aspire 9300(-3375)

By the way, have you tried v.1.7 or v.1.9 for 4gb ram compatibility?
Thanks

EDIT:
Just tried them both and they're both fine with 4gb. Now using v1.9.

Re: Aspire 9300(-3375)

Put in a formal complaint to Acer like I did. I guarantee you'll also be ignored like I was. They just don't care. I wish I knew more about the bios myself, the coding and so forth. I'd mod one of the updated versions. Maybe we could ask someone to do it for us. Edit: I have now done so elsewhere. ...

Re: Aspire 9300(-3375)

Glad I could help, unlike Acer who is clearly incapable of doing anything useful. I wonder now if they'll release a version higher than 1.20 which will hopefully support 4gb again. Such a pain in the backside to be honest as this has cost my Dad over £700 for a new PC when in fatc, it turns out he ...

Re: Aspire 9300(-3375)

I do apologize for not getting back to this sooner (missed emailed post notifications somehow). I discovered that the v1.20 bios has had support for 4gb memory removed. I had to pull a 2gb strip of memory out and the system fired up again. 6 months I was without my machine because of the morons at ...

Re: Aspire 9300(-3375)

I too have an Acer Aspire 9300 which has suffered a bad BIOS flash. The laptop had v.1.14 BIOS and their web site said there was an update available - v.1.20 I downloaded and ran the update and the process was totally automated. Unfortunately, when the laptop rebooted, it would not POST, nor show an...

Hi. Well, I took the mobo out and had a really good lookat all of the capacitors and found none of them were either leaning or showing any visible signs of wear/leakage/damage. So, I rebuilt the system and tested each memory stick (2x 1GB) in turn, first trying both sticks alone in turn, in alternat...

Why do you think the bios update is going to solve any hardware errors the machine may have? To answer your question, I installed all drives from the system onto another system with an MS-7005 v1.0 mobo and they all work without fault. I guess the mobo itself could be a problem but wasn't sure how ...

Compaq Evo D310

Hi, I have the above system which Im trying to get working. It has an MS-6541 v1.0 mobo and the BIOS is v.03.13. I cannot find anything about the mobo on MSI's site but there is a BIOS update available at the HP site (v3.16 I cannot post the link). However, I cannot update the BIOS via Windows as th...
