    Laptop not coming on after motherboard change

    Unplugged and detached ram for 30 minutes and it's working now. Thanks
  2. Hello. I just installed a used motherboard to my sager p157sm. When I try to power on, the light turns green, turbo light comes on, it stays that way for 29 to 39 seconds, turns off then automatically turns itself on again following same cycle all around. I ve reseated fans and gpu and also tried booting without gpu which also didn t work out. I tried booting with a single ram and changing ram slots and also tried a CMOS reset and nothing. Any help will be appreciated. Btw, board was confirmed working before this escapade.

    Cannot enable Legacy mode to install bios

    Secure boot disabled and grayed out. Uefi is enabled and grayed out no option for fastboot. This is why I'm confused.
  6. Hello. I'm currently running windows 10 on bios version 1.00 and want to upgrade to 1.03 but cannot boot Ms dos flash in uefi. There is no option to enable Legacy mode and the option to disable uefi in bios is greed out. When I try booting from flash in bios, it shows black screen and returns back to bios screen. My rig is a p157sm. Any help will be appreciated as I'm looking to install prema bios mod.

    Sager p157sm beeping for a minute then turns off

    Error occurs whether or not discrete gpu is installed. Removed the fan also and still has the error. I'm beginning to think it has to do with the board. Some people said they had their board replaced and it was cool. Some said the error started weeks after they purchased and some said years after. Was looking to purchase a 970m for it but now I'm changing my mind. Don't wanna change the system because of the removable CPU.
  8. Hello everyone. Just got a used sager p157sm for a gpu upgrade project and noticed it beeps for a minute then shuts down by itself when under load. It does well when watching movies but when benchmarking the issue pops up. At first I thought it was the gpu so I unplugged it but still occurs. Now it's running only CPU and still does the same things after repasting. Temps of CPU remain along 80 - 87 degrees centigrade. I've cleaned system components and changed Ram modules and slots still nothing. Any help will be appreciated.

    2 vrm temps on hwinfo64 gtx 675m

    No. Got an alienware 17. I figure the best option is to replace the GPU.
  10. Hello everyone. Recently, I had an issue in which my screen goes blank after startup while system is still running. I read online and was told the gpu was bad and needed to be replaced. However, today I repasted it, removed the thermal pads on the black square thingys facing the heatsink (memory modules i think) and replaced them with thermal paste but left the pads on the other side of the chip in tact. When I put on my system, it all went fine. Currently not experiencing the black screens anymore unless I fire up a game and leave it to run for 5 minutes. Then i noticed that the vrm temp (through hwinfo64) shows twice with different readings. 1 stays at 46-ish degrees while the other goes up to 110 degrees like it used to before then screen blacks out. My query is, can anyone explain to me the 2 readings? is it a fluke or bug? and also, any help with the vrm? I have attached a screenshot. Thank you.
  11. Does 3d still work after the update? If no, can the LCD panel still run at 120hz?

    Alienware 18 psu on a alienware 17 R1?

    Yes. 330w works
  13. Is it possible/OK to mod it on the wire? Eg. Cut the wires, link them with the I'd chip and house with the ferret.
  14. Hello all. I have an m17x r4 and I'm about to outfit it with a 980m BT I have a few questions. 1. Will options still work with 980m 2. Does it still do 3d on the r4 with 120hz screens 3. I use a 330w adapter. Anyone know where or who can help with the attachment mod to unlock the full power of the 330w? I'll be happy to pay for it. Thank you.
