This bios update isn't for an ACER laptop, specifically, but some of the files appear to have been created by ACER.

The motherboards may be the similar, as this bios update covers quite a few old laptops.

Just upgraded an old IBM and it's bios shows as 'acr79000-m12-000525-r01-a7e-en' now.
Incidentally, it didn't fix the issue with my new 128MB dimm showing up as only 64MB.

One of the prior bios fixes, included in this latest release, is a fix for not booting from certain types of CD-R media (XA format 2(90h) to be specific) and from certain CD-Rom drives (LG to be specific).

note, the url is long may be line-wrapped. There should be no spaces in it.
