T7700 support on Acer TravelMate 7730 & Acer Extensa 7230
#1
Hi everyone!

I am a happy owner of a Acer Extensa 7230, however when trying to upgrade from a t1600 celeron to a t7700 core duo
I stumbled across the problem "02f0 CPU ID: FB No Microcode Update Loaded for Alternate Processor", and the computer keeps
asking f1 to resume or f2 setup at startup.

Im wondering if I could have any help in modding the bios so it recognizes the microcode?
Im running Phoenix bios v2.3821 which I believe is the latest one.

Many thanks!

Please replace original bios file and try to flash it.
If it can't update within windows environment ,visit below thread and flash it by PHLASH16 within dos environment.

Hi,kusinritalinsome thing is not right for me , as far i understand so say that after appliing the BIOS file ZY2L3821.WPH your pc is working with the new CPU, but if i compare the conent of that file and the original ZY2L3821.WPH file it seams that there are identical, so your pc was right before you apply the new same bios and you say that you have error when fitting the new CPU.
Perhpas you have donne some other thing to bring it working.
As  i will do the same modification as you ,could you give me more explanation.
Sorry for my bad englsh , i am french.
Many thanks in advance.

Greetings BIOS-modders,

I have just upgraded a fairly old but still strong Acer 7730 with a fairly old but still strong T7700 CPU. 
The laptop is for an elderly person that doesn't have budget to buy new, so I do this upgrade for him for free.
The laptop works just fine on this T7700.

Yet... (you with experience know what's coming now..), the laptop gives the "No Microcode Update Loaded"-screen on start-up and when coming out of sleep...
I have the most recent BIOS-version on it that I could find: v 2.3821.
(BIOS version 3810 also works fine, but same microcode warning).

It would be a great help if someone could send me a modded BIOS for this, plus the instructions on how to apply this.
(I have fairly good understanding of computertech but not of BIOS-modding).

Thanks in advance,
greetings from Holland,

Sunny

Post a screenshot of third (Mainboard) tab of CPU-Z.
Show a photo of your T7700 from the top.
