Help with Bios on Acer Aspire 7551G

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I got this gaming laptop free from a friend (we thought it was broken...I fixed it easily haha)

Anywho I noticed that web pages were acting a bit slow considering how fast my internet is. Come to find out in coretemp my cpu was bring throttled but it's not letting go of it. I went into the bios to turn off amd cool & quiet but the bios is so locked down that all I can really do is change boot priority and change some passwords.

Is there any way I can get passed this? Any..uh...custom version of the bios I could install?

[edit] I looked in the power settings and found I could set the cpu power there when on battery or on plugged in and changed it to max on both so I guess we'll see if that works, it was on like 50% on max before

I also just noticed that I can never get above 600KB/s on wireless on this thing, it has b/g/n wireless and I know for a fact my router can output the full 4MB/s I have for internet.

When I was looking at the driver page there seemed to be like 4 different vendors for the wireless driver? Would it help trying a different driver?

it has 3 different ones to download, how do I know which to use?
