    Updated the list of Bios files and the people who tested it on post #4.

    To overclock with SetFSB, you must know your PLL (theres a chip on the mobo that will tell you your PLL, this number exists on 99% of motherboards, but SetFSB only supports about 80% of them).

    So no bios mod would help with that.

    Hi Everyone!

    I've just updated my TM2490 bios with "Aspire 5652 BIOSv3.60 SLIC2.1 VT MOD Fixed" hoping that the AHCI mode could be enabled. Unfortunately the only mod I've noticed so far is that there is an Infrared option under Main which is grayed out and the old one under Advanced, while it's not grayed out, is locked to Disabled...

    Any chance that the AHCI mode could be enabled somehow on this laptop?

    Thanks!

    Robbie

    Hello Kizwan,

    I sa that you've had some discussions with "Audiocore" and after reflashing his bios his laptop didn't turn on anymore. I've flashed one year ago my laptop using a Crysis USB stick and it worked. Some days ago my computer stoped working and I've flashed it again, but after a few tries, my laptop (Aspire 6930G) won't respond at all. Do you know if he was able to fix his laptop? Do you know how cold I get in contact with him or how to fix mine?

    Thanks in advance!

    Might be off topic but I will ask anyway...
    When I ran Everest ultimate, under motherboard (Aspire 5520G with 9650m gt installed) description it gave me information about 7000m integrated GPU which is disabled/not in use...
    Is there any way to enable it so I could use it when not playing games to reduce heat and power consumption when on battery?

    Thanx

    Hi

    I have tried both the BIOS_Aspire9420_VT.rar and BIOS_Aspire9420_VT_R5.rar BIOS (as per post #4) on my Acer Aspire 9423 WSMi and in both cases the "Intel Virtualization Technology" menu entry is missing. Does that mean my laptop does not support VT?

    Anyway, I came across this forum as I was looking for a BIOS that will allow me to activate "memory remap", or something like that, which apparently is needed in order to get my Debian with kernel 2.6.32-5-686-bigmem to see all 4 Gb of RAM I have installed. Right now it only sees about 3Gb. Would it be possible to get one from you guys with that option available?

    Thanks in advance.

    Jordi

    You're looking for PAE.

    You won't need it if you use debian amd64, or even and amd64 kernel in your i386 userland.

    Hi, ssorgatem

    Yes, I'm catalan.

    Do you mean to say that I can just apt-get install an amd64 kernel on my i386 laptop and Bob's my uncle?

    How will the rest of the system, all 32-bit apps, respond to that?
