Hey Prema,

any progress on P1xxEM and 780M? :)

Follow the white phoenix to its purple egg and prove your worth... :)

Hey i just installed premamod on my w230ss. I wanted to tweak my cpu- can anyone tell me what value shall i put under |Processor Current (Limit 1/8 Amp). My cpu is 4810mq

Usually adjusting the "Turbo (Short) Power Max" & "Turbo Time" values should be sufficient to keep it in Turbo. If you have overclocked the CPU then run first run Throttlestop to monitor the Amps it actually uses, then raise the value in BIOS accordingly. The 1/8 means whatever value you put there is divided by 8. So to get 60A you need to set a value of 480.

You may have to bump the TDP values, voltage or Amps via XTU...

Thx Prema it worked and now i dont need XTU! The problem with w230SS and 4810mq is default Processor Current Limit- its set at 61 A and it needs 85-90A to reach Stock Turbo clock - which is 3.6 Ghz. Limited Trubo is described in this article http://www.notebookcheck.net/Review-Clevo-W230SS-Schenker-XMG-P304-Barebones-Notebook.113676.0.htm so its not only my laptops issue [ thank god]

Here : stock Proc. Current Limit [61A]

Here: Proc current Limit @ 85A Freq jumped between 3,5-3,6

Hey there,

new user with W230SS (XMG P304) here.

I would like to try out the Premamod Bios for the w230SS but before I do it, I have two little questions:

1) I have 2 mSata SSDs configured as Raid-0 Array (>1000MB read/write performance hehe). Will the Bios-Update destroy the array? I read that I have to reconfigure the Raid after flashing the modded bios, just concernced that it might kill my raid (and the data on it.) If I configure the raid options just as they are now (Raid-0, 128kb stripe) the data will still be accessible right? Or should I back everything up before?

2) Is the HDD Password feature (my mSata SSDs are Samsung 840 EVO with self-encryption-support) usable with Raid-Mode at all? The Bios would just have to give both the HDDs the same password and unlock them before the raid features are used.. but did anyone try this or can someone say whether this would work in combination or not? I would like to full-disk-encrypt the drives, but software slows things down. (ok its not that big off a problem with a ssd raid-0 and i7 4810MQ, but still hardware encryption > software right?)

---

Would be cool if someone could answer those questions - at least the first one =). Just want to make sure I dont fuck up my raid with the modded bios..?!

1. If you set the system back to RAID after the flash (It's in SATA menu inthe Mod BIOS) it should not be required to re-doo the array, but there are sometimes 'hick-ups' so don't take my word for it.

2. It will only ask for the pass of the drive in the main SATA slot on boot. Should be the same in RAID...

NO! The NP8278 is a P170SM-A, the NP8270 & NP7275 are P170SM

That’s in the OP since quite some time…it only adds an ME update, while the standalone ME Firmware update, which you can also find in the OP, is newer than that anyway.

So it would be a downgrade... ;)

DO NOT UPDATE THE ME FIRMWARE above 9.0.x.xxx IF YOU WANT TO USE BCLK OC!

Fantastic work, Prema, thank you.

Now I'm just trying to figure out if my Clevo w352st with upgraded 95% NTSC screen from xoticpc needs the ICM Chi Mei N133HSE-EA1 profile or one of the others.

Prema,

Can You make a force option in bios to turn on or off specific color of keyboard led backlight for P170SM or disable/enable that option ?

Hi, it's me, computrace hater. If anyone cares, I solved my problem with UEFI boot. But I can't be sure, maybe it's now running in firmware and I made everything worse (i'm somewhat paranoid about uefi)

Hey prema, I have the p150em modded bios. I wanted to disable hyperthreading to test temperature difference but I cant seem to find cpu configuration menu in your bios anywhere. Has it not been implemented in the bios or am I missing something else?

Hi Prema

Just a question regarding ME FW - I have a P150SM-A and have the following version 9.0.20.1447 but notice in the OP there is now a version ME_9.1.2.1010_Win.rar - My Bios and EC is as your Stock version on OP (P15xSM-A_33_33_Stock.rar) - Can i update this ME FW to the version showing on your OP and also is there any side effects that we should be careful about?

Also i know you don't give ETA, but is the P150SM-A Bios being looked at using your famous mind to produce one of these fantastic BIOS's? i had a look through the whole 167 pages but could not see any notes about it!!

( ill now get back to some easy reading after this thread - LOTR Trilogy!)

Many Thanks

Nope, lights are controller by the EC, not the BIOS...

Every Windows installed on a "Low Level Formated" HDD/SSD with a BIOS that has "Anti Theft" disabled by default in UEFI or non UEFI should not show any Computrace activity.

Currently that is not available on P-EM...

The 9.x standalone ME Firmware can be used for every Clevo Haswell system. It won't alter the ME, just update. So if the ME was modded or stock before it'll remain that way.

There is now a countdown for all P1xxSM-A Mods:

Hey there! Awesome work with the Bios mods, I was wondering I recently purchased a Metabox W370SS, is there an equivalent to this? If there isn't consider this a request :P

So at the moment I have to stay with the default limited Bios?

Right now there are only 4 votes for W35xSS & W37xSS combined, while others have hundreds and even for those almost no one makes it worth my time once they get the mods...

So I am not utterly motivated and it is not essentially high up my ToDo list atm... ;)

Where do you get your stock drivers from? The ones on Sagers website seem out of date.

The Clevo specific ones from here:

CLEVO - Download

The others from:

Station-Drivers - Drivers

Or directly from the manufacturer of the components:

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/default.aspx

Realtek

Drivers ? Synaptics

etc...

I will pay you for it!, are you aware of any other resources available for the W370SS?

Hi there, I have the P370SM - firstly, thankyou for your work, this looks truly awesome!

Now, I'm an overclocking whore and I hate the artificial lock on the 4700MQ multiplier - what I'd like to know is if flashing this modded BIOS will allow me to tweak my system above the default max multiplier limit.

I'm hoping it does because man, do I want to get my system above 4.0Ghz...

Cheers!

Have Anyone a video bios for 8970m graphic card, to make it as a r9 m290x?

I have clevo P170SM

Probably from P170SM-A will work.

Vbios can be downloaded from GPU-Z

Someone help me ? :)

Ok, nevermind - it seems the CPU revisions only work with a certain amount of bins. Nonetheless, I flashed the BIOS and can't argue that you've done a splendid job adding all the different settings, make me feel feel at home since I sold my desktop.

Cheers Prema, nice job!

Now to do the GFX card...

      Hello to all big format laptop users!
      I`ll try to make it as short as possible. I have the Alienware M18X R1 for about 7years, i think. It was a problematic machine all the time. But during warranty period local support fixed everything super fast and free of charge :). I even upgraded from gtx 580m sli to gtc 780m sli. And made primary hdd samsung evo ssd. Unlocked Bios. Power brick i changed 3 times by now. Battery once. And 6moths ago one of the long time ago installed 780m died ( started with artifacts on screen then refused to boot windows). Replaced that and was as happy as ever. The machine kept working stable and i pushed all i could get from it in reasonably modern titles. Even tried RDR2 on default settings, gave me 17fps :). Not sure if SLI is supported for that game. The point is it was running fine for last 6 months.
      What happened:  Gaming as usual, room temp 23C. After around 2hr suddenly black screen. The laptop switched off by itself.
      What i check: First checked power brick. Green light off. Unplug from wall and laptop. After plugging in wall green light back on. Connect laptop light off.
      Next: Tried take out battery, unplug. And hold the PWR button for 1 min. Try to start on battery - nothing. Plug in - green light off again.
      Later: after some googling found that need to try to remove video cards. Done that. OK Nice! Plug in power and it starts as nothing happened on the integrated intel video.
      Found out that i one of the video cards is plugged in that triggers the power brick to trip. (the original upgrade 780m from years ago). 
      Start with GPU: Insert the other one in its slot. Systems start. But immediately i notice there`s no video drivers. OK i think reinstalling and job done. Drivers reinstalled, asked for restart. After restart nothing. Still no driver.
      Windows device manager: This is bogging me. it shows that i have 670M instead of 780m. Windows gives Code 43 Error.
      BIOS: I go into bios just to find that that it has reverted back to A05 (hows that possible?). And its so limited that i cant even choose witch video card to use. But it detects nVidia GFX.
      How to get at least my single 780M to be working?! Update bios again to unlocked? Did this event fry Vbios on my other card maybe?
      System: m18x R1
      SLI gtx 780m
      Unlocked bios (before event)
      nvidia driver 443.x(or there about)

      Hello,
      does anyone know, which is the chip holding the VBIOS-ROM on an AMD Pro-WX 7100?
       
      I've two AMD Pro WX 7100 which doesn't work. One has maybe a wrong VBIOS and gets deativated in BIOS before any system boots. The other one is not recognized by the MB so I suspect this one to be defective and un-soldered two chips, which I suspect to be the VBIOS-ROM:
       

       
      On earlier GPUs, the VBIOS was the chip closer to the GPU. But here, this chip has a bottom SMD contact which looks more like some power electronics...
      So before I start soldering on the probably working GPU - can you tell me, which actually is the VBIOS?

      Thanks.

      Hello there!
      I am new on the forum. I'd need some help. I own a lenovo ideacentre t540-icb g, and i would need to unlock all the options in my bios, especially overclocking and thermal configuration. I tried with both amibcp and mmtool, but i didn't succeed (Error 18).
      I wonder if you could help me or give me some advice.
      Thanks in advance.

      Hello everyone! First of all sorry if this isn't the correct forum to post this.
      I bought a laptop few days ago. The laptop is Sager P150EM.
      Cpu:i7 3610qm 
      Gpu: amd hd 7970m
      Ram: 8gb
      Os: windows 8.1 pro
      So my problem is that everytime i install the amd driver after the intel driver my laptop freezes or gets a bsod or something that stops it from working. Any help would be appreciated. I saw somewhere something about vbios does this matter anywhere?

      Hello everyone! I am looking for an answer to a problem I cannot find a solution to ... I purchased an Amd wx 4150 MXM GPU module su e bay to upgrade my HP 8570W Mobile Workstation which is currently equipped with a Fire Pro M4000. Once the new GPU has been installed, the PC screen no longer turns on but works only with external monitors connected via the docking station. The same happens once the drivers are updated! If I put the old card back on, the integrated monitor starts working again ... How can I fix it?
