Insyde H20 hidden settings ???
Hi everyone!

I´m new here and not the best at english so I hope I post this at the right location and that someone can help me spread some light on this aweful bios for me. Confused

I reacently bought my first laptop in many years and didn´t gather all the info like I should han been before purchase. I noticed that I have basicly no options at all in the bios which is so sad.

The laptop I bought is Acer Aspire 5741G - 354G50Mn and the info I can find in bios says: InsydeH20 Setup Utility Rev 3.5. I use the latest update 1.15.

I can only set boot option and sata mode in bios basicly and that´s it?
That is horrible and I feel really trapped, is it really supposed to be like this or can I somehowe unlock hidden settings for this bios?
Maybe I will never need all bios settings? But I really really do want them on principle (I did pay for the laptop) among other things.

I also I wonder why this specific laptop cannot utilise swichable graphics?
I mean is it something with the bios that is forbidding the laptop to swich between Nvidia GT320M an Intel IGP or is it pherhaps HW related and impossible to activate?

I saw in HWInfo32 it says Internal graphics is supported under cpu features so that made me wonder if pherhaps I could manage to activate swichable graphics? Rolleyes HWInfo32/SMBIOS/on board device says Intel video graphics controller is enabled to? I wish I understood these things better and knew what to make out of that, if there even is anything to make out of it??

I will never buy a Acer laptop ever again if this is what they do with the bios, but for now I´m stuck with this for minimun a year or two since my economy is not the best. Though I do want to upgrade it with time, have already given it an Vertex 2 120GB + fresh Win 7 Ultimate install, soon swap the i3 for a better CPU and maybe moore/better ram as well? Matte screen (1080p??) etc, etc, the list goes on and it´s fun to.

If anyone can help me with some answers regarding unlocking bios features anp pherhaps a solutiion to switchable graphics I would be moore greatul then I can ever express.


It really pains me to see almost every post in RE: to insyde has not been responded to...I'm dying here! I don't even know what to do
Keep up searching for possibilities to mod/edit these crappy nappy Insyde-BIOSes as we also do!

Sometimes you just have to try to be sure it is not working...

Yea, I'm staring at my own extractedBIOS file with absolutely no idea what to do with it.
