I have a laptop that of its own accord turns itself off without warning and reboots. I have been told to "upgrade to bios 2.0 but when I go to the relevant section for my machine on the Acer website the only one available is 2.12. Presumably 2.12 is the correct one but as people are suggesting 2.0 I am confused. Are they one and the same. Any advice welcome. Thanks
At a guess - and it is a guess - I'd have thought that you'd be OK. It looks like you need Version 2.0, and 2.12 would be Version 2.0, update 12. Which is probably more stable than the original version 2.0...
Thanks for your answers. I have been onto many forums about this and again many people who have had this problem have upgraded the bios and it has solved the problem ( I think Acer are advising it themselves because it is a well known issue)
The laptop is an Acer aspire 7735g about 2 years old.
I would imagine if the bios showing for this machine is the 2.12 on the Acer site then that would be the correct one to upgrade to if needed. Acer are not replying at the moment. Thanks
So long as you have got the correct BIOS for your machine, you should be OK. .12 will just be a more recent version than 2, as Ian suggests.
It might be worth getting opinion on here as to whether the BIOS upgrade will solve your problem... after all, if something else is causing it, the BIOS upgrade may do nothing to help, and may cause further issues.
