How to Update the Acer Veriton 7500 BIOS

Save

If you've updated hardware or your operating system on your Acer Veriton 7500, you may need to update or flash your BIOS. The Basic Input Output System is central to communications between your operating system and your system hardware. The BIOS is also responsible for the boot process for your operating system. The Acer website provides the most recent BIOS updates for your Veriton 7500 desktop for free. Drivers are also available in the same section of the site.

  • Visit the website listed in the Resources section of this article. Select "Desktop" from the "Product Family" box. Choose "Veriton" from the "Product Line" box. Select "Veriton 7500" from the "Product Model" box. Click the "BIOS" tab to view the most recent BIOS update.

  • Click the orange arrow to download the BIOS file. Right-click the file and choose "Extract" or "Extract All" to unzip the file. Read the "Readme.txt" file for version-specific instructions.

  • Place the extracted files onto a bootable media. This includes USB flash drives, CDs and floppy disks. Note that the media must be empty in order for the BIOS to update correctly.

  • Restart your computer with bootable media inserted. Press "F12" during the boot process to open boot options. Select your media from the options list.

  • Restart your Acer Veriton 7500 after the update and press "Del" during the boot process to enter the BIOS.

  • Use your arrow keys to select "Load Optimized Defaults" and press "Enter." Press "F10" to save your changes and restart your computer. This will allow the BIOS update to go into effect.

Tips & Warnings

  • If you already have the most recent version of the BIOS, you don't need to update the BIOS again.
  • Don't turn off the power to your Acer Veriton 7500 while the BIOS update is running. This will corrupt the BIOS.
