Hi all,

I am new here, so I am sorry if I have posted this in the wrong section. Also, I realise this question has been asked before, but all of the other threads are really old.

So, my issue. I flashed the unlocked A08 bios with sata fix and everything worked brilliantly. Then, in my infinite wisdom I turned on UEFI mode in BIOS to see what would happen. What happened is it rebooted with 8 beeps (no screen) everytime I turned on. I looked at the other forums and did the whole usb recovery thing, however, I believed it was taking to long so I turned the computer off after the computer rebooted and beeped 7 times (cpu error). I tried taking out the CMOS to no avail. Now when I try the recovery USB the usb never seems to be loaded (light never comes on). Any ideas?

Thanks for all the help, and sorry for any mistakes I have no doubt made.

I have followed that thread. That was the point at where my beep number changed and now it does not read any usb device... Does this mean i've killed it? Thanks again

I do not know what to tell you, I also installed the bios mod. then I made ​​changes without knowing what I was doing, and the M14x R1 would not start. I followed that procedure and I put the original bios and then it started.

Your M14x is still under warranty? if yes, call for service and tell them that you put the bios A08 (do not tell him of the bios mod) and you do it repaired.

Ciao :)

Hi everyone,

I'm new to this website also. I hope this is OK to post this message here. I'm thinking about getting an SSD for my M14X R1. I didn't realize the computer didn't recognize SATA 3 with the A08 BIOS until I read about it a few days ago on the Internet (I currently have the A08 BIOS; 2760QM CPU; 8GB of RAM; 3 GB DDR3 Nvidia GeForce 555 video card; Windows 7 Home Premium). With that being said, and the subject in this forum, is it worth the risk in upgrading my BIOS to A08 Unlocked in order to get the full speed of the SSD? Opinions would be appreciated in making this decision. I hate the thought of buying a new drive and it only running at SATA 2 speed.

Thanks

P.S. My computer is also out of warranty.

@Setuptech1 and @daviddoeschl I am in the same boat..I just installed my SSD and am only getting Sata2 speeds. @daviddoeschl you stated that u flashed the bios and everything was brilliant yet? Then you messed it up after. My worry is that if I try this flash my pc will BSOD and have startup issues..it runs fine now just not at Sata3 potential?? Should I use the mod?

      Hi guys, I am the proud owner of a Clevo p775dm3-g notebook purchased from azom.systems (authorized Clevo reseller in India, Model rebranded as Azom Legion-17.3 inches). Here are my specs:

      Core i7 7700 (non-K version): undervolted by 110 mv and turbo boost disabled in BIOS- machine uses prema mod BIOS.
      GTX 1080: undervolted by 100 mv on all frequency steps using MSI afterburner voltage/frequency curve editor. clocks are untouched.
      16 GB DDR4: Cant remember clocks.
      1440p 120 Hz screen: No tinkering done to refresh rate.

      CPU has been delidded and repaste has been done on both CPU/GPU dies with gallium based TIM-Coolaboratory liquid ultra if I recall correctly.

      My issue is GPU hitting max temp limit of 90 degrees while playing DOOM and framerate drops from 110 avg to mid 60s-70s with horrible stuttering- this is thermal throttling for sure.

      System was running beautifully after repaste at 86 degrees max/ 77 degrees average at 100 percent fan speed. A month later I decided to see how much further I could push the system and ended up undervolting the CPU/GPU and RAM even further. The RAM undervolting part didnt work as well as I'd hoped, and I ended up resetting the BIOS to undo everything and reapply the previous setting (-110 for CPU with turbo boost disabled.) 

      I noticed that immediately after BIOS reset, both my CPU and GPU temps were 5-10 degrees higher even with the undervolt/underclock applied. Also, I think the fans were a bit louder before I reset the BIOS which leads me to believe that for some reason the fans are now capped at 80% max fan speed. There doesnt seem to be a fan speed selector in the BIOS or anywhere else so I cant say for sure whether this is a fan related issue or something else.Before the reset I could override the BIOS setting and set the fans to 100% by pressing fn+1, could I have done something to that setting after resetting the BIOS ? I dont think I have damaged the CPU or GPU as temps are holding fairly steady at 90-91 degrees and laptop doesn't shut down while gaming.

      If I have overlooked something or if anyone reading this has any solution help would be greatly appreciated.
      All settings/drivers/windows version/app version are exactly the same before and after BIOS reset.
