    New user reporting in. Even though I haven't received 2570p in my hands yet, i'm curious, is anyone tried an socket eDP mod? Since eDP is coming right from CPU and it's socketed in this model, there is not too much trouble to achieve it without loss of docking station functionality. One trouble is inversion schematic for eDP_HPD signal, but theoretically that input can be permanently soldered to vtt or gnd. There are 3 variants: 1. just solder wires under the socket - if corresponding eDP pads exist on the other side of the motherboard; 2. place wires between socket and CPU, with inserting copper leads in the socket pits or making a lasso around corresponding CPU pins with it; 3. unsolder these pins from the CPU and solder wires to the CPU instead - very hard and compromise variant, actual in case when pins not hang in the air as described in schematic for the 2560p. Yup, this is theory, but chances to get it to work are pretty big i think. Also question for @adrian_sa, how do you set the PWM freq in the bios? Since bios unwhitelisting method is revealed, it's possible to make some good bios mods and fixes. some nb: 2570p:

    Hi, In this thread you can post your requests for AMD-V unlock on ACER E5-553G and same laptops with AMD CPU's, for example Acer Aspire E15, Acer Aspire E5-523G, Acer Aspire E1-522, Acer Aspire E1-420, Acer Aspire E5-421, etc. Now we can unlock AMD-V function for virtualization support. In general, this method described in the article on this link: http://www.geektech.co.nz/how-to-unlock-...enovo-y700 This way requires Windows as a system because some tool works only in Windows. Download this tool: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4NHIBM...RtQXM/viewExtract the archive H2OUVE.rar directly on the Desktop and copy the H2OUVE folder directly on the disk C:\ Then run the Command prompt as Administrator and execute these commands: cd \ cd H2OUVE H2OUVE.exe -gv vars.txt After each command press the Enter button. After that, you'll have the file "vars.txt" in H2OUVE folder.Post here this file "vars.txt" or upload it to any fileserver and send me the link. For reference, here's the EFI-table with available settings for this notebook: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B4NHIB...WI4LW14bE0 And here's the setting that needs to be changed: 0x1C40B Setting: SVM support, Variable: 0xEE {05 91 54 02 55 02 54 00 34 12 EE 00 00 10 00 01 00} 0x1C41C Option: Disabled, Value: 0x0 (default) {09 07 27 00 10 00 00} 0x1C423 Option: Enabled, Value: 0x1 {09 07 28 00 00 00 01}

    Well, guys. I've successfully managed to get an unwhitelisted BIOS from F40 just according to @adrian_sa reference, and also shrinked the MEI firmware. There is two things to notice: 1. use UEFITool (non- NE Alpha -version) to drop unnecessary modules, and Andy's Tool to determine what modules is needed to be dropped. Last one reads module names better, but first one rebuilds modified image correctly. 2. Internal programming is impossible at this moment, since even after descriptor overrided there are some locked regions remains. But, forget about it - if you flash broken image, laptop will turn into aluminium brick. It even will not turn on. External programmer is needed in any case. But well, i'm not interested in a loss of bunch of time when trying to get mSATA to work by replacing modules from similar platforms. I've built coreboot with platform config modification - just replaced 0x33 for 'sata_port_map' to 0x3f in 'devicetree.cb' file for our notebook. And - yup - it works, mSATA is binded to the SATA port2, correct value is 0x37. If someone want to make it usable just as ASPM was done - you may use setpci and this file for reference, but more work than just 'setpci -s 0:1f.2 92.w=8337' need to be done there. Full SATA reinitialization in most difficult case.

    As long as it is docked, or plugged in, you should not. Depending on what you are doing, it may run a couple degrees warmer than now. If you are not plugged in or docked and running on battery alone, it will drain faster due to the higher demand by the processor. If you are running games, then yes it will run hotter than usual. My E6430 has a 3rd gen i7 in it now, and I run a R9 380 eGPU with it. And while running high demand games such as Monster Hunter top graphics settings and Need For Speed Payback, my computer does run hotter than normal, but the original fan and cooling unit are enough to keep it at a manageable level.

    Hi! Try use drivers .inf files from this link: https://premamod.wordpress.com/2017/08/15/j95-nvidia-inf/

    I recall that even with a 45W quad, the CPU is BIOS-power limited to something like 40W for the 45W quad (not 45W). Benchmark showed that the lask 5W is mainly for the integrated GPU in the 45W quad. So any 45W CPU will run at fullspeed if you don't use the GPU, and at least if the cooling system is OK (or the 2570p case is cold, I observed that the case slows down the CPU building temperature pretty much a lot). I doubt that you have a CPU problem, this is very very rare, but it could happen. Same for the mobo, but it could be. I think it must be the battery

    WhiteBacklight.xmlDam BlueLight by default maybe someman knows how to set a other Colour for every Time even after Shut on . Great when are some posts by thats Theme ! Missing white backlight on RGB-Backlight Keyboard on P750DM/P751DM so now Found ? ( maybe also Casestribe) Tricky to picture WhiteBacklight maybe to test by own ControlCenter v5. ControlCenter Profile XML add for import in FlexiKey WhiteBacklight.xml

    Some guide how to use SPI Programmer CH341a:Step 1.If you already get your modified bios then go to Step 2.Step 2.Purchase the necessary equipment.To flash bios mod in to your bios chip you need a CH341A programmer and a SOIC8 SOP8 test clip. (You can found them on ebay, it cost a total of $20 USD for both items.)Step 3.The drivers and software for the hardware you can purchased were located on the seller's ad page on ebay.) This step should usually be completed BEFORE plugging the programmer to your computer. Installing them before plugging the programmer into your computer will help avoid potential driver trouble with Windows. (If you have some trouble with drivers installing, then just disable "Driver Signature Enforcement" as the drivers were not digitally signed). After installation, reboot your computer.Step 4.Connect the clip to the programmer and then plug in the programmer into your computer. Run the included software.Step 5.Now you should try to search the bios chip on your motherboard. Usually you need 8-pin chip with first two digits 25, like this: Winbond 25Q32FVSVQ, 25Q32FV, 25Q64FV, 25L3273E, MX25L6473E or the same.Step 6.This step will be based entirely on the software that came with your programmer. Enter in the exact chip information or, if the software you're using has an auto-detect option, you can use this, but I would recommend double checking.Step 7.Read the chip. Read the current programming on the chip and then read chip again. Then make some comparisons between them with any Hex editor. Make sure that it looks exactly the same. Remember, they should be the exactly identical, so they should still look exactly identical.Step 8.Load the modified bios file and write it to the chip.After loading the modified file, the tools use only required click an "Auto" button. This then took around a minute or two to write everything to the bios chip. If the program freezes, or appears to be doing nothing, don't touch anything for the next 10 minutes as you don't want to mess anything up if it is doing something.Step 9.Done. Remove the clips and see if your laptop boots. Another guide: Open your laptop and find your bios chip and search for it. Usually you need 8-pin chip with first two digits 25, like this: Winbond 25Q32FVSVQ, 25Q32FV, 25Q64FV, 25L3273E, MX25L6473E or the same Connect the ch341a and clip to your windows machine and laptop Open ch341a programmer 1.13/ CH341A.exe click “chip search” if it find your chip then next step, else rechip the chip/ Open ch341a programmer 1.26/ CH341AFree.exe choose your bios type/size. Click Read After done click Save (original_1.bin) Repeat step5 and save as original_2.bin Open HxD “Crtl+k” compare original_1.bin and original_2.bin if they are same go to next step otherwise repeat 5) Then post it in the relevant topic or upload it to any fileserver and post the link in the relevant topic. When you get your modified bios, then time to write bios to the chip Open ch341a programmer 1.26/ CH341AFree.exe choose your bios type/size Click Erase it will erase your chip . You must do it before flash After bios chip will be erased , then click Open, choice your modified bios Click Write and wait 100% Now the mod is done, remove the clip and power on the laptop, it will beep 5 x2 time , it will gone once you go to bios setting and restart. Another guide: https://www.win-raid.com/t796f16-Guide-Using-CH-A-based-programmer-to-flash-SPI-EEPROM.html Also, you can search on YouTube a lot of guide for CH341a.

    Hello fellow Aliens, Since our ships emit different noises; Since this is NOT why we bought them; Since Dell's Engineers did not care about them; Since some of us are SEVERELY affected by those; Since at least 2 of these horrible noises can be shut-off; I created this thread hoping it will help people getting the HELL outta their DELL Most likely, you all know by now the four (yes, that is 4) different noises that come out of our ships,as they have already been described, but as a quick recap, we have: CPU Whine: Easily audible whenever one core is heavily sollicited, tend to be less audible if more cores are sollicited, or if the fans kick-in like crazy; this sound seems to be inherent to Intel's I-core's CPUs, not much can be done here I guess... Actually, you may get rid of the CPU WHINE by downloading and merging this file to your registry, and by applying the tweaks found here. Note that the specific setting which makes the CPU WHINE much more acceptable is this one: Minimum processor state = 0% GPU Coil: Easily audible whenever the GPU is sollicited, for instance if you quickly scroll up&down a web page, or if you stay idle on a web page that has a lot of flash animations; this sound seems to be inherent to GPUs, not much can be done here I guess... Transistor Off: Easily audible from the left side vent area when you plug the A/C adapter to your machine, without powering it on; this sound seems to come from a faulty transistor, capacitor, which seems to be unable to properly deal with the power (current) that is fed into it, so it kinda suffers from this and therefore emits a noise like an high-pitch EEEEEEE, constant. This sound shall stop about 10 seconds after you disconnect the A/C adapter, or as soon as you power on your system. Transistor On: Easily audible from the right side vent area when the computer is running; this sound seems to come from another/the same incompetent transistor/capacitor, which seems like the previous one to NOT be able to deal with the power that is injected in it, or so... This jerked transistor will then emit a constant but intersected, cut across high pitch noise, more or less like Morse Code, going like EEEEEEE-EEE--EEEEEEEEEE--EEE--EEE-EEEEEE-EEEEEEEEE-EE-etc... In my humble opinion, this last one is the most annoying of the four described above, as this one is giving me headaches if I work for, say more than four hours in a row on my M17X... Well, since it seems we can't count on Dell to first, aknowledge the problem, and, needless to say, to fix it, well, here's the cool part: a French guy found a way to solve it, it's not a manufacturer's solution, mind you, still it works, so let me entertain you here...What you wanna do is the following: 1. Right-click on the Sound icon of your taskbar; 2. Click on Recording Device; 3. Double-click ANY Mic in the list (Mic or Mic In or Microphone Array); 4. Click on the Level tab; 5. Slide the volume down to zero, click on the speaker on the right to mute the sound (red circle appears); 6. Click on the Listen tab; 7. Check the Listen to this device box; 8. Click Apply, then OK... 9. Believe it or not: YOU ARE NOW THE MOST HAPPY CAMPER OF THE WHOLE ALIENWARE UNIVERSE !!! Enjoy ! eYe
