  1. Was rather thinking that someone who dumped it would chime in and tell whether they had to remove the bottom base or not Thanks, will tear it apart tonight and will get back to you when I have the dump. Thanks! OK I was able to dump the bios, send you a PM.
  2. Hi, I've got the SPI programmer and tried to dump the bios, but the clip was constantly 'sliding' off of the chip.. I'd assume there's enough space to get a grip without removing the whole base cover, but right now I am not sure if the issue is with my fatty fingers or do I really need to disassemble it to get the clear access to the mobo?
  3. Can you try one more thing - plug the drive into the msata slot, hold the FN key and power up the laptop. It should run the diagnostics, let it run and check what will happen (if it will find any issues) then once finished (and no errors found) check in BIOS if the drive is getting detected. I had a weird case of boot looping laptop right in the middle of the post and had to "reset" it like this to be able to boot into OS.. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  4. It would mean that your laptop is trying to recognize what's that, that you've plugged there so maybe the port is not bad after all and there's something else going on.. I'll be in the office today so I'll try to get some answers from my bud (nothing granted thou).. regarding the temp it may run hot, mid to low 40 is nothing that you should be worried about (except the fact that the drive is not recognized) Btw. You can't get another drive to check the slot but maybe you can check the drive in another laptop to see if it gets recognized there from within BIOS? Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  5. It wouldn't make it incompatible, rather than breaking something that works properly.. I wouldn't recommend downgrading just yet, as this may cause even more damage.. I'l try to get the m6700 bios emulator, to see what eventually may need to be switched off/on since the drive is detected via connector(s).. Quickest way to check this would be to check another msata drive in that slot, but I understand it might not be that easy to achieve..
  6. It all depends, when did you flash the BIOS was it after or before the issue occurred. If after, might be that there's something odd with that BIOS, if after than reflashing won't be needed as it did not fix the issue with the first attempt.. I'll try to get in touch with a guy I know that works for Dell, he might be able to provide some more insight on this.
  7. Btw, regarding the slot that you plug the drive to is it by any chance the wwan slot (judging from the dimensions of the drive it would fit there)? And have you tried updating the BIOS (even if it is the latest one)? I am asking that, because while some precision workstations will detect the drive in wwan slot, others won't (m2800 will, 3510/3520 won't).
  8. Loading system defaults "should" put you back to legacy if not its worth trying to either switch to CMS enabled (or whatever legacy support is called in Dell nowadays) or fully go with legacy and check if it gets recognized then. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk

    Best Thermal Paste

    When I've bought my clevo (P751ZM) it came with GC Extreme both on CPU and GPU, after a year I've decided it's time to repaste it, so I've bought MX-4. Unfortunately the temps were worse than with GC (mid-high 80, going above 90 with high load on the CPU), so I've decided to try Kryonaut from Grizzly and I won't switch back to anything else (non metal) - without delidding (I am waiting for my rockit cool setup) my 47790K stays in mid 70's - it is expensive but it's worth the price if you don't want to/can't delid your CPU.
  11. I have 50 games but out of those I've only played two.. Skyrim and Dota2 Most of them are part of HumbeBundle or any other bundles that I've never really bothered checking what's that..
  12. I don't think the slot would gone bad just like that since you've said that prior to making any changes it was working OK. If possible I would reset the bios to its defaults and would check it from there. If it's still not detected, get some contact spray and try to clean it with it, we were having similar issues with our HP Folio notebooks, where "fatter" SSD's would pull out the sata connector and we would have to clean it to get it properly recognized again.

    Witcher 3

    Currently going through the Wild Hunt - 60+ hours in game and I still haven't visited Novigrad yet.. I am not using fast travel as the views when you ride on Płotka (i don't get the English translation, it suck imho) are gorgeous, that sometimes I've spent time watching the sunset I also try to read everything, talk to everyone and following old RPG fashions I explore every inch of the map (found some Witcher school gear plans without even getting the quest for it yet).. For the Cyberpunk 2077 - according to some reports earlier stage of the game was thrashed when lead game designer changed.. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  15. You didn't say what laptop you have (how's heatsink designed) or what are the temps - getting higher clocks may generate heat that is not dissipated easily, so it may require you to think about ways to handle that extra heat by changing thermal pads for better ones than stock (Fujipoly for example) Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
