Can someome please confirm if the 2570P defiantely has a SATA3 6GB hard drive interface please?

 

Do you also know if the 8460p and 8470p also have it?

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Yes.  All of the 60p and 70p systems I've encountered support SATA III 6.0GB/S on the hard drive interface.  I have a 2560p (now modded to a 2570p), as well as an 8760w (now modded to an 8770w) and multiple 8470p systems all running SATA III drives at SATA III speeds on the hard drive interfaces.

 

Here is a link to the specs for the 2570p http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-c03412731

Note that if you ordered it with an SSD, it was spec'd for SATA III 6.0GB/S.

Hi, I'm about to purchase a HP 2570p. I intend to use egpu with my Zotac 650 ti boost. I have a few question:

 

  1. Which egpu device is more stable? I heard Nando said that PE-4C is more stable, but how about EXP GDC v8?
  2. I want to use internal screen. AFAIK, I only need to download mobile driver here, no Setup 1x needed, right?
  3. Do I need thermal material when upgrade CPU like copper shim or thermal pads? I only have thermal paste available.

I used the bluetooth USB for HDD. Thank you pillofoc. You were right about bluetooth USB. It is not in whitelist. System installed to SSD msata. I have installed two HDD 2 TB and one SSD. I'm traveling a lot and working very far on the North. That's why I need big volume of HDD to download a lot of films. And in a future I can change one HDD to SSD and and  set up RAID 0.

Hi @invait53

First thank you for your wlan+bluetooth mod,your explanations and pictures helped a lot a beginner like to do your mod.

Now I want to ask you the same thing about msata ssd on bluetooth mod,can you please put some detail pictures and schematics how to do it?

I'm not so technically skilled like you,so please try to explain step by step.Of course,if you have free time to do it.

Thanks in advance!

Best Regards!

What is sata version on the ODD interface? Planning to buy HDD Caddy and use SSD on it, but that would be pointless if the sata version is 1, according to this image:

I'm planning this upgrade too. In my opinion, that means the SATA version of the dvd itself, not the port on the motherboard. HP2570p uses a QM77 board which support at least 2xSATA II device.

 

In another problem:

Do I need to replace to a more powerful charger if I upgrade the CPU to an I7 quad?

Sorry I don't get it, so it means ODD interface is SATA II while primary HDD interface is SATA III?

 

I bought the Caddy at AliExpress (waiting for delivery), it says "SATA for HDD and SATA 3 for motherboard" (number 3 and 4):

My bad, QM77 have 2 SATA III (not II) ports. Check here

Quick question... does anyone know what USB 3.0 chipset is used by the 2570p?  Is it Intel?  (Or perhaps Renesa?)

 

Thanks much.  Can't seem to find this info.

It is not easy to find this out but I believe it is Intel based upon product descriptions and it having an Intel QM77-J8A.

Thanks... I'm thinking you're right.  I just read Intel's spec sheet for the QM77 chipset, which says it contains "an integrated eXtensible Host Controller Interface (xHCI) host controller that supports up to four USB 3.0 ports." 

 

So, must be Intel... unless someone here knows differently!

Guys, does your 2570p comes with skin guard on it? I bought second hand 2570p and it has such a skin guard both on cover/lid and palm rest, but i5 and Windows7 emblem/logo on top of it. So I dont know whether it comes from the HP or previous owner.

No skin guard on mine, or any the others I've seen in the wild... probably after-market? 

 

I think you could just peel it off (if you don't like it).  I've had my skinless 2570p for years now, and the thing seems damn near indestructible :super:

Proud owner of -- currently still 2560p hackintosh (with everything working) -- but this topic made me decide to get a 2570p due extra oomph for CPU, eGPU, whitelisted WiFi and lots of exciting hardware mods. Thanks a million for putting this thread together and such a blessing to see such an active community. Looking forward to contribute after learning from you folks. *manhug*

Rhyker-

 

I had a 2560p to start with too.  I bought a 2570p motherboard off eBay cheap (around $40 US I believe).  If you are thinking about upgrading the processor on a 2570p, just get a 2570p motherboard and the i7 processor you want (I went with a 3720qm), and use a small dremel style cutoff wheel to modify the bottom chassis per my earlier post (bottom of page 49 of this thread) and save yourself some cost. 

 

I'm still kicking around a few ideas on how to fit an IPS 1080p display too...

Just noticed that my 2570p has no bluetooth on it. Is bluetooth an optional or standard device on 2570p?

Hello, today I got hit by 2 strange problems. On the same day my audio and power button stopped working. Power button doesn't react to commands, inside the windows, and it doesn't start the laptop itself. What I noticed, that the laptop starts to boot once I insert the power source (battery or the plug) is it expected, or the button is stuck in the ON position? For audio, it just disappeared, device is detected using windows or Linux, but no audio can be heard using speakers, or the headphones. Any ideas?

The wireless works without issue.

In fact I'm using the same wireless card on mine.

However, the Bluetooth doesn't work as the slot doesn't have the USB connection needed to run the Bluetooth.

You'll still need the Bluetooth adapter.

My first time posting here.

Just thought to share that I'm a happy 2570p user as well.

I'm not as hardcore as the other users which I see around.

Mine is a lot more modest than that.

-Core i7 3740QM

-16GB 1866MHz Crucial Ballistix DDR3L (2x8GB)

-Crucial MX200 250GB (Boot drive)

-Crucial BX200 960GB (Storage drive)

-Intel 7260AC Wifi card

-ExpressCard USB 3.0 card

Otherwise the rest of the stuffs are untouched.

 

Anyway, I do have couple of questions to asked which I don't think I've noticed was posted here.

When I upgraded it to Windows 10, I noticed that there is a Base System Device driver that isn't installed.

Windows Update could not provide anything regarding it.

Googling around wouldn't yield any results too (or perhaps I have been googling it wrongly).

My unit comes with the Bluetooth, fingerprint scanner but without the webcam.

The fingerprint scanner and Bluetooth work just fine.

Not sure if any of the masters here are able to help me out regarding this.

 

Secondly, I've recently updated the Windows with the Anniversary Update.

However, the unit now keeps crashing after 10-15 minutes.

It'll just turn unresponsive and there is nothing that I couldn't do.

The BIOS is currently set to UEFI Native.

Could this be an issue with the UEFI?

 

I'm currently using the F.61 BIOS version.

And I just noticed that they have the F.63 available now.

I'll probably update the BIOS first and hope that this resolves the issue.

Appreciate the feedback from the rest of you masters too.

:)

      We've had a stack of recurring questions from with problems getting a mPCIe eGPU working. This includes GPU-Z not reporting no clock details, error 10/43 or even not being detected at all. Overall it's more troublesome getting mPCIe working than say expresscard or Thunderbolt.
       
      Here's some common problems and some troubleshooting steps to correct them.
       
      Getting a black bootup screen, resolving error 10/43 or ACPI_BIOS_ERROR win bootup messages
       
      Here the BIOS doesn't know what to do when it sees an eGPU. So the solution is to not let the BIOS see it. Do that by setting the delays on the eGPU adapter (CTD/PTD - EXP GDC or CLKRUN/PERST# on PE4L/PE4C). Boot with eGPU adapter in the wifi slot into Setup 1.30 or Windows. Is the eGPU detected?
       
      I'll add that should error 43 continue AND you have a NVidia dGPU as well as NVidia eGPU then it's likely because of having the mobile NVidia and desktop NVidia drivers loaded simultaneously. Proceed to uninstall ALL your NVidia drivers, use "DDU" to clean NVidia registry entries and do a 'clean' install of the latest NVidia desktop driver.
       
      mPCIe port that hosted the wifi card disappears when connecting an eGPU in it's place
       
      Use the Setup1.30 PCIe Ports->enable to enable the missing port.
       
      eGPU does not get detected
       
      Overcome mPCIe whitelisting by booting with the wifi card and then hotswapping in the eGPU. That way the BIOS will enable the mPCIe port to work.
       
      1. Boot with wifi card into Windows, sleep system, swap wifi card for mPCIe eGPU adapter and ensure eGPU is powered on, resume system. Do a device manager scan in Windows. Is the eGPU detected?
       
      2. Boot with wifi card into Setup 1.30 *carefully* hotplug the eGPU adapter in place of wifi card. Hit F5 to rescan the PCIe bus. Is the eGPU detected?
       
      If this enables detection then avoid this tedious hotswapping by seeking a unwhitelisted modified BIOS for your system OR test the Setup 1.30's PCI ports->undo_whitesting feature.
       
      eGPU still not detected - set the PSU to be permanently on
       
      The latest EXP GDC and BPlus eGPU adapters try to manage the PSU to only power on after they detect a signal. This can cause a race condition where the eGPU isn't ready to go when the CLKRUN signal is asserted.
       
      Avoid this by jumpering the PSU so it's permanently on rather than being managed. Depending on the PSU you are using refer to the following doco on how to do that:
       
      http://forum.techinferno.com/enclosures-adapters/8441-%5Bguide%5D-switching-atx-psu-using-paperclip-trick-swex.html
      http://forum.techinferno.com/enclosures-adapters/9426-220w-dell-da-2-ac-adapter-discussion.html
       
      eGPU still not detected - a non-standard mPCIe implementation by your vendor?
       
      PERST# mPCIe pin 22 may need to be isolated due to a non-standard implementation by your notebook vendor: http://forum.techinferno.com/enclosures-adapters/10812-pe4x-series-understanding-clkreq-perst-delay.html#post142689
       
      eGPU still not detected - faulty hardware?
       
      If you still don't get detection then test the video card and eGPU adapter in another machine to confirm neither is faulty.
       
      NVidia driver stops responding
       
      EXP GDC, PE4H 2.4 and PE4L 1.5 all use a socketted cable and therefore are not true Gen2 compatible device. This error indicates there was transmissions errors.
       
      The solution is either to get a better Gen2-compliant eGPU adapter such as PE4C V3.0 or PE4L 2.1b (both with soldered cable), or downgrade your link from Gen2 to Gen1 using BIOS options or Setup 1.30

      Required items:
      1.) Lenovo u310 (I have a Core i3 - Ivy Bridge, 8GB RAM)
      2.) 65CN99WW unwhitelisted.
      3.) eGPU (I used a EVGA GTX 750 Ti from another computer I had).
      4.) EXP GDC mPCIe Edition adapter (got from eBay - banggood seller).
      5.) ATX power supply (I used a 600W PSU from another computer I had).
      6.) USB wireless.
      7.) External monitor, keyboard, and mouse.
       
      Steps:
      1.) Obtain and install a unwhitelisted BIOS. If you are unable to obtain a unwhitelist BIOS, I think it might be possible to bypass it with Tech Inferno Fan's Setup 1.x (may need confirmation as I haven't used it myself yet.)
      2.) Shutdown computer and remove all USB devices, ethernet cables, power cables, card reader cards.
      3.) Remove mPCIe wireless card and detach antennas.
       
       
      4.) Attach EXP GDC external mPCIe cable to the former wireless slot and screw down.
       
       
      5.) Attach HDMI end of the mPCIe cable adapter to the EXP GDC device.
       
       
      6.) Attach graphics card to the EXP GDC device (I moved my laptop off the desk and onto the side shelf to make room on the desk for the monitor/keyboard/mouse).
       
       
      7.) Using the power cable adapters that came with the EXP GDC device, I hooked in my ATX power supply's 20 pin and CPU 4 pin cables. Then hooked the other end (8 pin) into the EXP GDC device. My EVGA 750 Ti also required that I use an additional PCIe power cable (6 pin) in the top of the card.
       
       
       
       
       
      8.) Then I attached my misc devices (HDMI monitor, USB keyboard/mouse/wireless adapter), and hooked in my PSU and powered it on (below is image of final product, also moved HDMI cable out of the way).
       

       
      9.) Power on your computer and let it install the standard VGA drivers and then install your drivers (I didn't have to go in the BIOS for any graphics settings, which it doesn't have anyways, nor did I have to disable iGPU in Device Manager before the card was added).
       
      Extra Info:
      I found that most games will play on med settings with about 45 FPS with this particular card.
      BDO: Upscale on - Anti Aliasing on - SSAO off - med settings.
      Skyrim: Med-High settings.
      Fallout 4: Med settings.

      Hello, A couple of days ago I got a new GPU but when I installed it into my computer I was unable to use it but now I know why. When checking the device manger I went into the events tab of my GPU when I went to view all events, I noticed an error it said " event 411 kernel PnP " and It also said Problem Status: 0xC01E0438. I believe this is why my GPU hasn't been working on my PC. If you know how to fix this problem or have info on how to fix this problem that would be greatly appreciated. I'm also using a EVGA NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660.
    • By TheLoser1124
      I'm having a problem where my PC is saying my eGPU is not usable, its detected in the Device Manager and it doesn't have the yellow triangle next to it. I cant use it games and the Nvidia Control Panel doesn't recognize it either. I'm using a EVGA NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1660. I'm using windows 10 and I tried DDU and reinstalling them and now I cant access the nvidia control panel. The GPU is not recognize on any other apps and I went on *********** and was unable to find my answer, Any help on how to fix this problem would be greatly appreciated.

      Title sums it up.
       
      TL;DR: we have a Clevo that runs a desktop CPU, one with those huge 82 Wh batteries. We remove the GPU and let it use the CPU's integrated graphics. How much time for the battery to go from 100 to 0? Is it comparable to an ultrabook's?
       
      I'm theorizing a mobile set with a static eGPU and an upgradable CPU. Given a hypothetical user that needs fast processing on the go and long battery life while retaining very high degrees of mobility, but at home wants a powerful machine to run most games, I guess that would be their best bet. It would surely be more convenient to keep everything in the same disk. And even though the thing would be quite heavy to carry around, changing CPU would be more cost-efficient than changing an entire laptop. (Not sure if I'm right here, and also I'm not sure whether the motherboard in a Clevo would be replaceable when the new CPU needs a different socket, which is another reason why I'm asking here.)
       
      If my above guesses aren't correct, then an ultrabook with Thunderbolt and without a dedicated GPU would be a better choice. If they are, then we would be carrying more weight in exchange of a more cost-efficient setup, which I think would be a fair tradeoff.
       
      Also I am aware of the heating problems that these laptops suffer from, at least compared to a desktop setup. Would they be solved by moving the GPU out of the chassis, and instead plugging it with an eGPU dock via Thunderbolt port?
       
      What do you think? Is it doable? If not, why?
