  1. Well sometime ago I disable the integrated graphics using the unlocked A08 BIOS. However, yesterday for some reason I was going to re-enable it again and made a mistake in selecting the wrong option on the Video Setting setup page. After that my computer has been unable to boot up and I get a blank screen. I tried the BIOS recovery by placing a usb stick on the eSATA port with the file named PAR00X64.fd and I get usb activity, a lot of beeps after that and two reboots, however, i get back to the blank screen again. I tried using all the available video outputs (vga, hdmi, display port) and it was a no go. I could only managed to see the intel raid driver screen via hdmi but after that I get a blank screen. My issue is not hardware related, more of a software issue and if i could manage to revert the BIOS to the default settings everything would get back to normal. My PC is an m17xR3 running the unlocked A08. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  2. Hi, This forum is amazing. I'm a noob here and I was so impressed I bought the elite membership immediately. I'm having a big issue though, which is that I can't get this overclocking .exe's to run in wine (Windows virtualization). Is there a way to max the m14x unlocked bios for a08 work in linux? Thanks in advance!
  3. BIOS A08 popped up on Dells driver site, grab it here: Drivers and Downloads | Dell [united States] No change log included... damn it, seriously. Any noticeable changes? Let us know. If you can't download from Dell, grab the attachement. EDIT: Note that you might not be able to easily downgrade to a version which predates A08. EDIT 2: A09 is not on the Dell site, but file is nowhere to be found... weird. You might want to hold off with updating until they release A09. M14x_R2 - BIOS A08.zip
  4. Dell just released a couple of new BIOS for their most recent AW systems. Thanks @Nemesis for the big news. There's no change log available, so let us know how it goes and whether you notice any big differences. Maybe if someone could make some screenshots in case there's any visible difference... I attached the untouched BIOS, it can't be accessed through the official site at the moment. NOTE: You might not be able to easily downgrade to something older than A08 anymore. EDIT 2: A09 is not on the Dell site, but file is nowhere to be found. You might want to wait with updating until they release A09. Here's the official link: Drivers and Downloads | Dell [united States] M17x_R4 - BIOS A08.zip
  5. Dell quietly released two new BIOS versions for the M14x, A07 and A08. Changes for A07 are: Link for A07 And for A08 it says: Link for A08 I'm not sure what the change of the SATA speed limit really means, maybe you can now get full SATA2 speed through the ODD, that would be great in case you use a caddy for a second hard drive. A08 seems to be simply a VBIOS update for the 555m. As always recently, Dell is pretty mean when it comes to information about the changes in the new BIOS revisions, these two points mentioned above are definitely important and I recommend to apply the update, but I also guess that there are some additional fixes and enhancements which aren't mentioned. I'm gonna take a look at both BIOS and see what I can do regarding the volt mod etc. Edit: Seems like A08 isn't up yet, it say file not found when I try to download it. Edit 2: There's absolutely no difference between the VBIOS in A08 and the VBIOS in the older versions... seems Dell messed up.
