    Hi,

    I have an Acer travelmate 4672 wlmi

    that has a t2300e cpu that i want to upgrade to a t5600 or t7200.
    And i cant find out if this laptop can make use of one of these processors with the current bios.

    Can some one add the cpu microcode for the memrons?
    (or check if its already there)

    I downloaded this bios from acer.
    Note: my laptop has an ati x1400 gpu and there are also models with intel gma950.

    As I said before it is up to manufacturer whether to implement it or not. It is not a BIOS problem.

    Hi,

    I successfully installed your MOD in my 5738G, but the screenshot available in your download does not correspond to my modified bios. I can't enable the virtualization (there is not such option).

    Any idea about whats happening?

    Thanks

    I will post the modified BIOS image when it ready. For the mean time, please make sure your notebook can recover corrupted BIOS with CRISIS disk.

    But you can't boot with the CPU, can you? Have you check at Intel website? Only these combination can support Q9100:-
    Mobile Intel® GM45 Express Chipset with 82801IBM I/O Controller Hub (ICH9M)
    Mobile Intel® GM45 Express Chipset with 82801IEM I/O Controller Hub (ICH9EM)
    Mobile Intel® PM45 Express Chipset with 82801IBM I/O Controller Hub (ICH9M)
    Mobile Intel® PM45 Express Chipset with 82801IEM I/O Controller Hub (ICH9EM)
    I believe your notebook have different Intel 45 Chipset & for sure it doesn't have compatible I/O Controller Hub.

    Have you check your CPU specification at Intel website?
