240W PSU ID Chip in 330W PSU
Whap-A-Chow posted a topic in Alienware M17x / AW 17Does anyone happen to know if the EPROM chip in the 240W PSUs from the m17x-R2 can be extracted/de-soldered and placed inside of the 330W PSU to override the "unsupported adapter" errors when powering up the R2 w/o the 240W? From the research that I've been doing, both use the 1-Wire Design from Maxim Innovation. But what I cannot find are the internal pictures and schematics of the 330W PSU to even contemplate this as a viable mod. Ideally, I'd like to have a lighter option than 2 x 240W PSUs to power my R2. Thanks guys.
