  1. Curious if anyone has attempted to mod the ME firmware to overcome the artificial limit Intel sets on bclk OC for kabylake onwards (about 103mhz)? @Khenglish have you tested similar mods with newer tech? Would be keen to try something when I get my p870dm + ES 8700T.
  2. The keyboard issue sounds like the notebook wasn't happy with the EC , maybe someone flashed an incompatible EC rather than flashing the bios and EC at the same time. You mentioned that you suspect a poor connection for the GPU fan, but FN + 1 works. I'd still suspect that the sense wire on the GPU fan might not be working, maybe worth just plugging in another similar fan of you have it, as a test. Otherwise I know it's probably the same as pulling the CMOS battery, but try the combo of FN + D and then hit the power button. Worst case maybe flash the bios and EC firmware with an external hardware rom flash tool.
  3. Hey just wondering how you went with the p375sm, I'll be trying it myself over the next couple of days.
  4. Anyone know the latest update on this, still no way of obtaining a Prema modded bios? Prema mod V2 for the P375SM would be the one I'm after.
  5. Curious if you managed to get any further along in your troubleshooting? Too bad you don't have another power adapter to rule that one out.
  6. Thanks for the tip, btw I always use dos from a USB flash drive to flash. Not that I don't trust windows, I just am more familiar with flashing from dos.
  7. Would you be able to mail me one with a clevo HM vbios on it? If so, please pm me the total price including postage to Australia. I didn't think the bios would be so picky. @Clyde that's for the suggestion but I don't own such a programmer (not sure where to get and also which one to get).
  8. For some reason I had the urge to flash this vbios onto my clevo 7970m. Now it's bricked. I'll just quote the post I made on NBR: Not getting any beeps. Anyway have any ideas? Why didn't it work? Also if anyone has any 7970m vbios chips available I'm interested in buying one Or if anyone needs a clevo 7970m flashed with a dell vbios let me know I could sell this gpu. Any M18x r1 owners looking to upgrade
  9. I myself have tried all available on the intel download page. Only version 2.1 can change anything (ram, few other settings, nothing useful like bclk).
  10. Try ctrl+ins , FN + B, win + B. Those might work (mainly FN + .
  11. I've done it before on a different heatsink with a heatgun set to 600C.
  12. What was the recovery procedure that you have tried? What key combo did you use?
  13. If you read the rest of that thread you will see someone did try it and it should be fine to use.
  14. After you do the repaste I think you will be under 85C. Also usually you can't see if there is dust between the heatsink and the fan without taking it apart (literally pull the fan from the heatsink).
  15. I've had a chance to test MeSet.EXE today, with good results. Ok so here is what I have just done: I first put fpt.exe onto a bootable usb drive, and I tried to run the command "fpt -d dump". I got the standard error message "The host CPU does not have read access to the target flash area. To enable read access for this operation you must modify the descriptor settings to give host access to this region.". Then I ran MeSet.EXE, the notebook turned off and then back on and started beeping (it was still usable). So I tried the same command "fpt -d dump". This time it worked. I will attach the dump to this post.DUMP.zip Now I just have to read back through the thread and see what I can do, it's really good to know that I don't need a hardware mod or a key combo, all I need is MEset.exe. ______________________________________________________________________ Update time. I have modded my bios image following the guide in the OP, it's attached hereflashnow.zip. Then I restarted my notebook, ran meset.exe in dos, restarted again, ran the following command in dos "fpt -me -f flashnow.bin". I took a photo of the result. But I have no change in intel XTU, no bclk overclock, nothing new at all.
