    By HD, you mean 1080p? I don't think there's one for 2570p. From what I understood from a couple of posts back, the latest mod for the screen is still for 720p resolution, only that the screen is made with different technology resulting in better viewing angles.

    Dumb question, is there a possibility to use m.2 ssd now given the development on disabling the firmware whitelist?

    @adrian_sa please continue your great work. I hope you would be successful in enabling the m.2 slot of wwan. Also, can you please link the website where you found the info about whitelist modding? Thanks

    After a year of using, my eyes are starting to get strained from looking at the monitor. T.T

    I'm still on Sierra 10.12.6. I want Mojave but I have to read more and hear more people who have 2570p reporting they have working Mojave on their machines. I'm trying to solve the reboot issue (laptop would restars instead of shutdown) on Sierra after bridged the wlan usb to usb dock. Good to know hackintoshers are alive in this thread.

    True. The cable works with 2.5" sata hdd.

    Also, I'm a little stumped at the moment. I bought an esata power to sata connector for the purpose of booting off from my 3.5 sata hdd. However, interrupted boot, BIOS cannot find the HDD, nor does Windows 10 or Mac OS Sierra (I'm on dual boot win10 and macOS). Is our elitebook providing power on its esata? There is a guide here about booting off of esata and he seemed to be able to boot (or at least made the bios detect his hdd) just by using that special cable. Mine just doesn't work. Any ideas why?

    Earlier today I checked back to see for replies but having seen none, I decided to bite the bullet. I took my motherboard to an electronics repair shop and asked them to solder the jumper for me. I brought thin cables that I took from a spare USB charger cable, and wires from cat5 ethernet cable. The technician used the the thin cables from the USB cord. I bought this wifi-bt combo card from AliExpress and 802.11ac 867Mbps Wireless-AC For AzureWave Broadcom BCM94352HMB WLAN+Bluetooth BT 4.0 Half Mini PCI-E WIFI CARD AW-CE123H Wi-Fi works natively on Windows 10. Bluetooth needed some searching for driver so I let Windows find it for me, and afterwards, BT worked. Checking back here again to report my progress and am happy that @viasat took the time to give his insight. Thank you nonetheless. I appreciate it. Last upgrade would be to replace the mechanical hdd with SSD, but that's until Black Friday / Cyber Monday arrives. Cheers!

    @invait53 @anyone I've disassembled my notebook to get the motherboard and now it is lying in wait until I get a response from you. I bought an atheros half-mini wlan AC bluetooth combo card. I want to enable bluetooth. Q: What type of wire should I use to connect the wlan pins to dock? Are the wires from cat5 ethernet cable too thick for the purpose? Should I use a different wire? Will the wires inside a mouse cable sufficient? What type of wire is the best to use? I'm not an electrician nor an electronics engineer. Sorry if this question seems dumb.

    Thanks for the quick reply friend. Yes, you are correct. Dirt could also play a factor. In my case, it's just loose connection. It's my conscious choice to stay on BIOS 41 as much as I can. I looked at the BIOS revisions too, but iterations above BIOS 41 does not address issues with RAM not being recognized, so updating it was really last on my list. I'm glad I didn't update. I'm afraid it would mess my Hackintosh dual boot setup on this little workhorse. (I'm currently on dual-boot setup, windows 10 and Mac OS Sierra 10.12.6) I almost believed I made a bad purchase today in buying Samsung RAM. I really suspected it was because my new Samsung RAM had 12800s when on the reference sheet, HP only mentioned 12800 type of RAMs. That, and it having an extra 's' at the end, plus it not being on the reference sheet. But, prior to today, I'm using non-HP RAMs: my dual channel setup uses 4gb Elpida RAM plus 4gb Buffalo RAM and they worked nicely on dual-channel despite not being on the list. So branding was less of an issue for me -- based on my experience with building my own rig PCs. But earlier, it cast doubts on what I think I know about PCs. I was really stumped. So I'm ultra happy these rams work. Got it for just 57 usd used, but in very great condition, and I believe its a steal so I'm super happy at the moment.

    @invait53 Thank you for your feedback. I'll try to do the mod once I got the time. Hope you'll have fun once you visit my country. I have another issue I'm facing with today. I bought a pair of used Samsung ddr3 sodimm ram. The sticker on BOTH RAM stick it reads: 8GB 2Rx8 PC3L-12800S-11-13-F3 M471B1G73DB0-YK0 Meaning it has the same part number, perfect for dual-channel. However, if used together, my elitebook would refuse to boot. Using both RAM on both ram slots. Upon power on, the fan would really blow air like the laptop wants to fly. I've never seen my laptop fan go crazy like that. The screen wont power on, and the lights on the home button and caps lock would blink simultaneously. It stays like that until I do a hard reset/power off. If I just use one RAM and put it on the upper ram slot, the laptop would boot successfully, fan is ok. Same case with the other RAM stick. So both rams work independently. If I put one one RAM on the lower slot and no ram at the upper slot, device won't boot. Both RAM slots work as I was using two 4gb of ram on it for a total of 8gb dual-channel. I'm really stumped. HP 2750p supports two 8gb ddr3 pc3L 12800 ram sticks for a 16gb dual channel max. Yet my device refuses to boot. I'm on bios 41. I'm thinking of upgrading to the latest BIOS but that is the last thing I'd do. I would just want to ask here first if you guys have tried installing the same RAM and succeeded. Never mind. I tried reseating the RAM at the lower slot and applied a little bit more force. It finally boots the computer with just one slot. Then I added the 2nd ram on the upper slot. It boots. It appears the 2nd RAM was not getting enough surface contact with the pins of the second slot, that's why it won't boot. Both rams now detected in dual-channel mode. Problem solved.

    Hi invait53. I'm looking to buy the wifi card you mentioned. But before I do, I would like to ask for a confirmation: 1) Were you able to connect to an AC speed network using that wifi card? 2) Did bluetooth 4.0 work? Looking forward to your response.

    I would just want to report that i replaced the stock i5 3320 procie with a secondhand one, an i7 3612QM that i found for cheap (PhP 1500, or equivalent to $3 dollars) and i couldn't be any happier. Well, except of course for its weight. Its pretty heavy. But I love the built. Very solid. And heavy too. Oh! One more thing, it's a little weighty. But I'm loving it. Added an extra 4gb ram for a dual channel 8gb ram. Pretty satisfied. I hate the charger tho. It's so bulky. Can you guys recommend a slim/lightweight probably 2017 model charger that's easier to carry than the stock charger that works for our 2570p?

    Here she is! Unfortunately I spoke too soon about the wifi card's hackintosh compatibility. The card it came was not supported. I still need to find a compatible wi-fi broadcom card. Btw, does the Elitebook 2570p came with Bluetooth module? I can't open my Elitebook yet because of the warranty. https://imgur.com/a/LQyNM
