Hi guys, I recently updated my Vbios to stop issues that caused my Laptop to freeze when adapter gets plugged in/ not being able to recover from hibernate. After flashing the bios the newer Driver updates from the ATI websites dont work and i keep getting blue screen unless i use the 5870m drivers from the alienware site. This however is really outdated and doesnt not perform even close to the updated drivers. Is there anyway i can resolve the issues which cause the freezing while having the latest drivers? Please help!
New BIOS revision for the M17x r3 is out, A08. Incredibly fast update considering that A07 got just released about a week ago... On the Dell site it only says "Support new CPUs", this indicates that the release of the Sandy Bridge refresh is just about to happen. That's only a guess, but I think it mainly means the i7 2640M, i7 2760QM, i7 2860QM (and i7 2960XM , see also here for more information about these CPUs) I wonder whether they also already fixed some of the bugs which apparently came with BIOS A07, no further information so far. Report here about your findings, I'm especially curious whether the 580m throttling issues is still present with this BIOS. Click here to download BIOS A08
