Hello everyone! A little bit of background first.
I own a Neo Basic B5125 and I would like to update my BIOS because the fan speed was running too slow after replacing the old thermal paste and still throttling. In the BIOS the MB series written on it was W240HU/W240HUQ with BIOS revision 1.01.09TGL and EC firmware revision 1.00.02. I came across this thread and found links to update the BIOS.
From this post, it appears that OP has a BIOS version of 1.01.06 while I have 1.01.09TGL. So my question is, is it safe to flash this? Thanks in advance!

Could someone pls help with unlocking all customizable bios and vbios features for the rog GL702VMK laptop (7700HQ + 1060 GTX)
Already tried editing the extracted bios with ami tool but I cannot flash it successfully ..
this is my "results" file
Thanks in advance (Klem) !
I have an XMG u705 with the an í7 4790k, a Geforce GTX 980M 8GB, G-Sync Monitor, 32GB DDR3 RAM, etc. and I am damn annoyed by both the Mainboard Bios and Vbios, because both are the cause for a ton of driver issues under Windows 10. Also I can't use my lately bought Samsung 970 Evo, even though technically there should be nothing preventing it. Heck I was even able to install Windows 10 on it, because the Windows 10 installer detected it, just not the Bios which is logically why I cannot boot from it. -.-
So in search of a solution, I searched the web and found out that there are several mods for both bios made by devs like Prema. Unfortunately some Bios mods I found are heavily outdated, unfinished, ... or not anywhere secure and I couldn't find any location where I could download Prema's Mods for this device, especially not on his Site (just a Subscribe banner there) or his older Wordpress site (errors). There is also nothing here under Downloads/Clevo/P77xZM.
I would be really thankfull if someone could help me.
Here are my steps i made:
1. I made a stresstest and my laptop shut down with a blackscreen (i just had 80degrees on one card and the other one had 35) and i wanted to get my Nvidia Cards back. I tried all with FN+F5, reinstalled windows, tried disabling Intel HD etc. etc. I had no chance to getting them back to Windows + BIOS. But it was working, all of it except the Nvidia Graphics Cards with A12 BIOS.
2. My next solution was to check all my cables and positioning from all cards etc. But all was / is okay. SO if all is okay and i cant get it to work, i had just 1 possible solution, that was this unlocked BIOS for enabling GPU Settings.
3. I made all the steps. All was working (got no Error during BIOS Update) and i restarted..... Bang. 1 Beep loop. After several attemps i cant get it to work again.
I tried Mr. Fox workaround
Turn the system off and disconnect the AC adapter
Disconnect CMOS battery and system battery
Do a power drain (press and hold power button 30 seconds)
Remove all memory modules
Reconnect AC adapter and power system on
Let laptop beep until it turns itself off
VERY QUICKLY, WHILE IT IS OFF, BUT BEFORE IT ATTEMPTS TO BOOT AND LIGHTS COME ON AGAIN, INSERT A MEMORY MODULE
System will start to beep 5 times
Power system off
Reconnect CMOS battery and system battery
Replace any panels removed for access to memory modules
(CMOS out, all RAM out, Battery off) but it is not working. If i made this i get 5 beeps again. But if i turn it on again i still get my 1 Beep..... CMOS in, all other out. drain it, then start it, i get a 2 beep loop, but it wont restart itself.
So i dont know what to do to yet. i tried to put out CPU and put out both 980m. Then try to do the same process again but it wont restart itself. I got no Error or something else while flashing. I think it was Success- or Finished-Message at the end and after that i restarted.
Yeah i dont know what to do to yet. i hope it is a easy solution because i dont know what to do without my "little brother".. :/
So... 1. Problem: it wont restart itself the 2 beep loop for nvram Trick.
2. If i replace the bios Chip, it should work again or is there still a problem with nvram?
I would buy this Chip.
Thanks in Advance!!!!
