G'Day

 

I am from downunder working in IT while studying business but my spare time is mostly consumed by the internet.  I stumbled upon techinferno for the first time while browsing information on laptop graphics cards... i cannot believe its been around for so many years and i never crossed paths with it!

Anyways, keep up the great work

Hi! 

 

I have an old Sager np9570, I already have prema mod bios but I don't know which values to apply. I have a i7-3930k and 2 gtx 680m sli. 

 

Are there still possibilities to overclock cpu and graphics cards to keep playing or is too old?

Hey All,

Been wondering around on NBR in search of info and advice for my old workhorse, the "Elitebook 8770w" but then stumbled upon this site.  Now that my kids are old enough to be interested in computer, hardware, tweaks, upgrades, etc. we are expecting to learn a lot from all the information you folks have compiled here and hopefully in time be able to contribute back to the community with what we have learned.

Yo, how's everyone? My name's Bryan, nice to meet you all. With all this downtime on my hands I have been giving an old laptop (g75vw) some upgrades and the like and ended up finding my way here looking into modded bios and overclocking. Unfortunately this laptop has the worst, most restricting bios I have tried to use so was happy to find modded bios after like months of searching. Of course as one might assume, I still don't have the bios and am really just hoping i can get that promotion after a week. How ever posting useful, relevant content has been hard as this forum seems all but dead for the exception of people reviving old posts trying to attempt just that. I have found it extremely hard just to get out five posts, this being the last one. So thank you to all those that are doing the good work of providing modded bios and laptop upgrade advice for these old machine, but please reconsider your ruleset as you have just basically breed a forum of pointless responses to long dead topics. Someone who posted about changing a part in 2013 certainly either has already figured it out or moved on, so if you are trying yourself to get to five meaningful posts please pay attention to post dates as not to revive all these old subjects for no reason.

I have an old M6700 I wanted to turn into a "mobile gaming" laptop.  The system supports CAD type work with an nVidia K5000m, and has multiple drive slots which I was ecstatic to find in a laptop.  I think it has great potential, but trying to identify the best way to modify it for it's new "second life".  I know this is supposed to be about me, but I'm not nearly as interesting as my project, so I thought that's what I would share with the community.

 

I certainly appreciate the fact that there is a community like this to engage.  Thank you for being here and being engaged!

Hey so I just finished reading the terms of service and reading a few of the other intros. Its kind of hard to not sound like everybody else but I will try my best. I have a 5 year old lenovo y50-70 that I have been upgrading slowly throughout the summer to increase my performance with it. The clock currently runs at 2.6 GHz and I can stably overclock it to 3.0 on most games. But once it gets up there the computer will thermal throttle even if its below 60 C. I'm looking to learn more into bois and overclocking in general. I don't want to brick my computer since I'm very new to this kind of stuff. I have to make 5 posts so I'm going to try to not put it all in one post.

 

Thanks for reading.

Hello all,

 

I've actually been here since 2016, but I don't think I've ever introduced myself. Messed around with PCs since the old Tandy 1000 SX. I currently am using a souped-up NP8258/P157SM-A, hoping to make an SFF Ryzen 3 build sometime.

Looking to get into modding devices for fun. Trying to start with an SLI laptop that overheats. Seems like a fun little project.

Hello all,

 

I hail from Bonny Scotland and own an Alienware M18X R1. I am here to try and gain more knowledge on how to make my laptop better than the stock Dell bios, drivers etc.

 

I have some decent IT knowledge and skills, but when it comes to writing Bios mods or any other coding I do not have the skill set for that. I hope to learn much from the community and offer advice in areas where I can.

 

Glad to be here.

Hi there, I run http://www.SanDiegoLAN.net and was given an old Alienware m14x laptop as a gift to try and fix up. It was in pretty bad shape but after fixing all the cosmetic issues I could, i'm now hoping to find an unlocked BIOS for it and I hear this is the place.

You can find the video of the refurb project on http://www.Youtube.com/SanDiegoLAN

Hello everyone. I have a 2014 ASUS G751JT laptop that I still use for school and gaming. Looking to soak up all the tips and tricks that people have on these forums. Already upgraded the OS drive to SSD and running HYPERX DDR3 ram. Will eventually build a tower but will more than likely continue using my laptop,

Hi all, 
friends call me ZuluTango :)
I am the proud owner of an M17xR3 .

Since last July, I am working slowly with my limited skills to upgrade my little baby against everyone that suggests me to get rid of it and get a new one.
Started with battery and power cable; Done
Then got SSD's and Win10 reinstall ; Done
Now I got a 780M in a box waiting for me to work on it (thanks to mattyb3 for all his advice and patience!)
Once done, I'll probably ask the forum the following: CPU upgrade for a M17xR3 :)
Oh and memory was upgraded first 4-5 years back :)

Nice to be here

Best,

ZuluTango

Hi everyone! From what I see there are a lot of newcomers looking for custom vBios.

I won't lie that I came here looking specifically for tech community, at first. I am looking forward to tweak my GTX 970m, because from what i see, there is a lot of thermal space. I am owner of Hyperbook X17-G (CLEVO P770ZM-G1 - polish reseller with own brandin).

I am proud father of litle baby girl - what implies, that there is not many time to develop own passion, but I really believe that I can learn a lot from this community :) Looking forward to have my own contribution to the community :)

 

Cheers Guys!

Big Hello From NY.

 

I decided to wipe the dust off my old M15x and from what I see, there's some more life I can squeeze out of this laptop. Looking forward to jumping in and see what this site has to offer.
