Bios Mods -The Best BIOS Update and Modification Source

Full Version: [Request] Acer 5740g Microcode update
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
Hello,
I'm wanting to upgrade my processor from an i3 330m (CPUID 20652) to a i7 620m (CPUID 20652) or i5 580M (CPUID 20655)
but I am unsure if the BIOS is already equipped with the needed microcode.
I am using this already modified BIOS for unhidden menus and GPU overclock.
Is it possible to have the latest microcode for 20652 and 20655? (seems it may be a tight fit)
and this will allow me to use all 3, correct? 

Also could the process be explained to me? CBROM195 hangs upon processing and I failed at hex editing (a million errors upon attempting DOS flashing, so I aborted before the flash) I would love to be able to help others.

On a side note there seems to be duplicate microcode entries in the original unmodified BIOS, is this normal?

Original BIOS 
Modded BIOS (menu unlock + GPU overclock)

Any help is greatly appreciated !
It's Phoenix BIOS, not Award.
It already has microcode for CPUID=0x20652 & 0x20655.
I think this laptop can boot all CPU for Socket G1 with Arrandale core.

I know it is a Phoenix, I was under the impression CBROM could do both.
Could it still be updated?
Users have stated in this thread that , for example the i5-540M causes an error upon boot and F11 key press is required to continue and features possibly disabled.
There is a mod here but it does not have the OC on the GPU and the upload is expired.

Thank you for your time  Smile
I don't make pure theoretical mods.

20652 is outdated, 
could you simply update this one? or brief procedure/tools so I can do so?
I ask only because I researched before I make a purchase and I seen a few problems.
20655 is up to date I made a mistake sorry 

Thanks for your help.

I'm not interested in that. You haven't new CPU.

I'm not a tutor.
I will buy the CPU and come back if I have a problem. I'm sure if there is it can be fixed.

Thanks heaps for all your help..!
