[REQUEST] Unlock advanced BIOS setting for Acer Aspire 7 A715-41G laptop

Hi. I wanna to unlock advanced settings in InsydeH20 rev. 5.0 BIOS. But those unlocking methods where you have to press different keys do not work. Maybe there’s something I don’t know? Just in case there is a link to BIOS - https ://global-download.acer .com/GDFiles/BIOS/BIOS/BIOS_Acer_1.02_A_A.zip?acerid=637383509207728131&Step1=NOTEBOOK&Step2=ASPIRE&Step3=ASPIRE%20A715-41G&OS=ALL&LC=en&BC=ACER&SC=PA_6
Thanks in advance :slight_smile:

you’ll need to buy a CH341A programmer and an SOIC8 clip to dump your BIOS and have an experienced member (not me) mod it, this usually costs around $10.

try method shown in this post on reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/laptops/comment…unlock_keycode/

always better to buy the programmer and make a dump before you make changes.

Yes, I have ch341 programmer and I know that I need to make BIOS dump, thanks for the notice.
About method on the reddit - i tried it a few times, but it is not working :frowning: Same version of Insyde, same version of te BIOS, but not working :(. Probably need another code?..

post your dump in a new thread on the BIOS Modding Requests subforum, not this one. Dudu2002 at bios-mods.com has more experience with Insyde, but the site is down for maintenance i believe.

if you have a correct dump, it’s pretty safe to edit the values you want with this guide : https://www.reddit.com/r/Lenovo/comments…er_latest_bios/ while you wait for someone to mod the BIOS for you.
