Acer Aspire V3 - 772G - BIOS setup utility menus have disappeared

Acer Aspire V3 - 772G - BIOS setup utility menus have disappeared

I have install this laptop brand new, pre-installed with Windows 8.1 for my sister-in-law who bought it.  The installation went well BUT the 16 GB USB device I bought such as advised by the literature of Acer to store the recovery partition was not large enough, 14.4 GB physical capacity.  Acer the book says to use a 16 GB or more, so I did.  I naively thought that a USB key which has been marked 16 GB would be appropriate.  Not the case.  I had to buy a bigger but am still waiting for delivery.

So I decided to any HARD drive to save the work I had done, but found only the Acronis Backup and Recovery DVD would not start the image.  I went into the utility configuration and adjusted the start parameters to inherited and modified device priority.  Acronis wouldn't so I did not continue.  I went back into the configuration utility, use F9 to restore the default value and to my astonishment that the DUAL boot option was now gone and Windows startup option was also gone.

This means that £800 this laptop is now unusable.  The installer standalone reconfigured without warning.  Nowhere is there at - it advice or advice do not use the Setup utility when it erases the features that cannot be recovered by using F9 to restore the default configuration.  If this isn't a serious design flaw, I don't know what is.

I am deeply worried because the idea of a BIOS setup utility behave in this way seems so unlikely that I wonder if anyone will believe me.  How are the Setup utility has been designed to self-harm like this?

Your suggested action works!  Thank you very much.  You saved my life.

  • Acer Aspire R3 - 131T BIOS v1.13 link does not?

  • Acer aspire e5 - 571 - Bios and aplications language

    I just bought an acer aspire e5 - 571 in German and I want to change the bios and all the language of the application of English. TI is possible? How can I do?

    try updating the BIOS with the latest version:

  • Acer Aspire M1641 Desktop. Rear audio jacks have a 7.1 surround. I need manual for audio jacks.

    Above is a close-up photo of the audio input/output jacks on the rear panel of my desktop PC Acer Aspire M1641-E3750A. I think that this configuration is a 7:1 surround sound system. When I access the manual Acer Aspire from the PC itself, it does exactly what is providing the function of a surround sound system. I do not know what the symbols mean audio universal: 'exit' - arrow pointing off wave circle and "input" - arrow pointing in the circle of the wave. The pink jack is the microphone input jack. Blue is the line-in Jack. The Green Jack is for headphones.

    Here are the three problems that I am trying to solve:

    (1) which output jack is what works in a surround sound system?

    Since the Green Jack is for headphones and a surround sound system this output probably of 'Left' and 'Right' would be pregnant before. Is this correct? I suspect that the black upper middle plug is the bass speaker. Is this true? I do not know what role the white and the yellow output sockets are used in this system.

    (2) what is the correct procedure of wiring/connection to connect speakers to the output jacks of?

    I think that ALL the output sheets are mini stereo cards. So, I have attached two speakers from each output as a stereo headphone jack?

    (3) made the PC power attached speakers in the surround sound system? If not, do I have to patch the outputs from the PC via an amplifier and then convert signals to the speakers?

    I apologize for all this detail! Perhaps there is a quick reference that someone could provide a link to a knowledge base. I tried Acer, Wikipedia and other sources, but I can't seem to find answers to these questions.

    Any help is appreciated. Thank you!

    A sound card integrated (such as Realtek) can have multiple uses made.

    outside one pink that is taken for Microphone, others can be used like headphones or speakers (normally the green one).

    If you go to your control panel and double-click the Realtek icon, probably will appear a window with different parameters and can help you understand what makes each output.

    for sure that you need an amplifier, the soundcard of the PC doesn't have enough power to handle a speaker without amplification system.

  • BIOS update failed on Acer Aspire V3 - 772g wth core 5 Intel and Nvidia Geforce GT 750 M


    because twice the problems encountered during the 2 major upgrade of my windows 10 family last week and 6 months ago I decided to check my Bios.

    Then I ran Windows 10 Familly and downloaded the BIOS_Acer_1.13_A_A.exe file from the ACER support site.

    My data is backed up. So no question about it.

    I've run this file and the PC has restarted.

    Surprised but horrible, now I get these messages in the following order:

    Welcome to help me. I don't know how to get back on the bios to factory?

    I don't know what to do?

    Good day.


    Boot to the BIOS by pressing F2, and then press F9 and F10.

    Check if you are able to start Windows 10.

    If it isn't

    Enter the BIOS again by pressing F2 and go to the Startup tab, check if a the Legacy value, if so switch to UEFI, press F10 and reboot.

  • I have a gateway desktoop which shows the bios setup utility. What am I suppose to do now?

    I have a gateway with windows xp home edition.  After you install the updates, I had to reboot my computer.  When he started this window UTILITY of CONFIGURATION BIOS jumped on and I'm lost.  What am I, I guess what to do?  Should I change something here?


    Thanks for posting this question in the Microsoft Community.

    I'll certainly try and help you in the matter of fixing. However, you must first check with the manufacturer of the computer or the user manual to get out of the manual in the BIOS. The key is usually ESC, but it varies depending on the manufacturer. When you are prompted to save the settings, do not save the.

    Consult the help of the manufacturer section , learn more about BIOS.

    Hope this helps and let us know if you need more assistance. We will be happy to help you.

  • Acer Aspire V3 - 571G Bios settings


    My laptop is very hot, I bought just like 2 days ago. It most of the time up to 60 ° c and the only thing that I opened Google Chrome or Skype alone, I think it's way too hot for a single program.

    I want to change the fan speed I tried settings of the Bios and could ' t find but then I saw there was a new update, I've updated and I still can not to change the fan speed.

    I tried FanSpeed, NVIDIA Inspector and things like that, I can't change it there either. Even though same NVIDIA Inspector allows me to overlock but I fear that will damage things, also since the laptop is new.

    Then. How can I change the speed of the fan?

    Thank you in advance if someone answers.

    You bought two days ago? I would like to take back. Someone at the factory might have a bad day, and you don't know what other problems will find.

  • Z61t - Error Codes: 0176 and 0271 - cannot access Bios Setup Utility - help!

    Greetings.   I have a portable Z61t and just when I booted up it I got two errors: 0176, which is a mistake of security/tampering and 0271 indicating the time and date are not set.  From there I guess he's trying to load the BIOS configuration so that errors can be corrected, but it requires a password that I do not have.  After the manual removing the main battery and the battery backup will solve the problem of password, but it's NOT.  Nothing I've tried has allowed me to get past this screen.  I can't even work around it and just get the operating system to load.  I've read tons of forum discussions, but so far nothing I've tried has worked.

    The password it is demanding is the supervisor password, you need to remember or find out that value.
