Reason: moved thread to "Open Chat", because the Acer Aspire D270 Bios is out of scope for Linux Mint or any other OS

Hi lordvader98

I guess that you need Windows to this https://www.manualslib.com/manual/10559 ... ml?page=69.

Otherwise give Acer a call.

HTH Jon.

Did you remove the main battery as well as the CMOS battery? Take them both out for a few hours. If you have already done this, I echo the advice to contact Acer.

This looks good: https://www.bios-mods.com/forum/Thread- ... e-One-D270 (although you'd just use the original BIOS).

Some interesting stuff in that link. I have an AOD270. If I get some lazy hours this weekend maybe I can play with the BIOS a little.
