Hi Guys, my name is Mako from Inverness, Scotland. 
Been building and modding desktops for a few years now, thought i would try my hand at laptops now since realising my Medion Erazer X6819 was upgradeable, i've done loads of searches recently while looking to upgrade my graphics and this site seems to come up alot and seems well respected in the community.

Gotta do a bit more reading on here before doing any more upgrades - the next stage seems a little harder than swapping out a Graphics card and modding a heatsink.

 

Will be asking alot of questions very soon ;)

Hi all, I'm wissper, from the DC area.  I'm a survivor of 20 years in systems and networking administration moving into the practice of law to handle cybersecurity and data privacy issues.  I've seen a ton of sites that all claim to have top notch mods, but this site is by far the most thorough and well supported that I've seen.  I look forward to learning from the community as I stumble my way through my hobby hacks lol.

 

Regards

Heyy, I'm arbitrarygrill, I've got a Dell Precision M6600 which I've just upgraded from a quadro 3000m to a quadro k4000m, I'm hoping to use slv7's modded vbios to push this card even further.

I managed to roughly get a 70% OC on the 3000m's core, alas it was only just good enough to play The Witcher 3 at 768p with average 30fps on lowest (textures on ultra).

 

This seems like a wonderful, if slow forum, and I'm glad to have joined it. c:

Hi, I'm Maxilos from the Philippines! Mabuhay!

 

 I came here after googling eGPU's, then I found this forum site. Pretty neat.

 

 I also happen to own an old Alienware M14X R1, so I'm looking forward to tweak it a little with the help of this site.

Hey all. They call me Max and I'm currently living in Scotland while working as an IT Tech in the Royal Air Force. Despite the job title, I don't do much work with PC's, but I did build my first proper rig a few years ago. Previous to that I purchased an Alienware M18x R2 and I recently discovered you can use the Express-card slot to hook up an external GPU. As you can imagine this is something I'm very interested in as it would extend my laptops usability by several years.

 

This is what actually led me to your site, but I have to say I've enjoyed browsing it for the past few days and hope to become a regular contributor.

If you've PMed me (on some other platform) regarding eGPU setups, I think you'll remember who I am...

I haven't posted in this thread before and I won't bother "introducing" myself but I just have to ask: This board is titled "Site Announcements, Rules & New Member Intros", so where are the rules listed?

That is a very... minimalist rules list, but alright, thanks.

Hello everyone.  Found your site while searching for a perplexing problem with my Dellware, sorry Alienware Laptop.  I have been working on fixing this issue since Thursday, May 19 at around 10pm.  Lets just say I have found more forks in the road than the number of Republican candidates at the start of the primary season (I am a Repub., so I can jest about my party).  I will be posting my issue in another forum.

 

I have been using computers since the Apple II era.  My first computer was a clone of the apple, the Franklin Ace 1000 (or was it 1500).  Anyhow it had more memory and better features at a lower price.  Add in a printer (dot matrix Epson), 1 floppy drive (5 1/4), something upgraded inside (don't remember), total cost a little over $2000.

 

I am tenacious when it comes to solving my computer problems, since I know that is the only way I learn new things and to not have to go through a reinstall.  I have watched the tech change, the cost come down and the errors/issues increase, and the requirement to find a school that speaks WER logs.  Some are easy to read others it is more like a dog chasing his tail.

 

I build my own computers, troubleshoot them, and provide advanced free tech support to my Mom (who ironically is able to create problems I have never seen before anywhere - for example AOL is rolling out a new interface, she somehow triggered it on her computer 2 months before release - don't even ask me how).

 

Well don't know what else to say about myself.

 

Thanks.

In the IT field, you learn the meaning of the term "Advanced stupidity" - It is a type of user error that can take your entire team of technicians months to figure out how it happened.

Of course you can't call your mom an "Advanced Stupidity" initiator/creator.  Is there a more PC friendly (not Personal Computer, Politically correct :) ) of telling your mom of 84 years that she has created an error that would require technicians to get involved in solving it?

Hello all,

 

I came across this site a few years ago not too long after purchasing my Mythlogic P150EM. I quite enjoy the dedication here so I guess I'm a long-time lurker first-time poster. How I came about this place was looking for BIOS information/instruction for my Clevo :)

 

The community here looks fairly stable and definitely mature compared to many other places I have frequented and/or lurked.

 

Anyways a bit about me. I currently work in Storage Support for NetApp. I have a BSc in Computer Engineering Technology and I love to game. One day I hope to design games myself. I enjoy technology in many areas and enjoy tinkering around with anything from building systems to overclocking them, to supporting them to modding them and beyond.

Hey everybody! 

 

I was fortunate to run into this forum thanks to a diy eGPU install video on youtube. Thanks to nando for his setup program so I can get my eGPU recognized on my Alienware M14x r2. All I need now is a custom bios to overcome whitelisting & I'm all set!!!

 

Cheers (& good luck to those looking to run an eGPU setup)

Hello everyone! 

 

I'm a newbie compared to most of you when it comes to laptops and upgrading them.

 

However, I've been lurking for a while and I admit I'm very excited over the prospect of having a laptop I can carry anywhere and a powerful eGPU when I get home. 

 

I'm going to research on my own as much as I can, but I hope you don't mind if I do some newbie questions every once in a while!
