I have an Acer X1920-UR20P desktop running AMI BIOS v02.67. At each boot, I receive the following message:
Not enough space in runtime area!! SMBIOS data will not be available. Press F1 to resume
I have reset the BIOS to default, I have moved the jumpers on the MB to clear CMOS, and I have flashed the BIOS with the one on the Acer site specifically for this model.
It runs fine if I press F1, but I would like to solve this problem for my customer.
Also, I noticed that in the system name and serial number spaces in BIOS there is nothing but WINGDINGS!
I'm out of ideas, and getting frustrated. Can anyone help me?
Thanks!

In this post for Asustek the problem was solved by booting with the motherboard CD and pressing ctrl+page up during POST to clear nvram.

The link you provided had the solution buried inside it. When I flashed the BIOS, I was not checking the NVRAM box to clear NVRAM. Once I did that, it cleared the error message!
