Random problem, really ! p770zm-g

Recommended Posts

Guys, I have this really annoying random problem since day one. I've only seen it happen on a simple windows reboot. Both 8.1 and 10. It never happened on power on, just normal windows reboot. I get this "Reboot and select proper boot device" and I only need to ctrl+alt+del and it will then reboot and boot just fine. My boot device is a samsung xp941 m.2 pcie ssd.

I think I have tried all possible settings regarding boot to make this happen consistently but I cannot. It is completely random.

 

This time I had the only exception. After my typical ctrl+alt+del the laptop shutdown and the power led started blinking. Pressed power and I went straight to bios setup because I've been trying to track what triggers that intel icc library failed to initialize. I know that if intel smart connect is enabled, windows will not boot giving acpi_bios_error and intel icc will give that message. This time though, intel smart connect was disabled. 

 

I never had any kind of bsod while in windows nor data loss, nothing, so I think I can rule out the pcie ssd

 

Any ideas ??? I have experienced this "Reboot and select proper boot device" with both stock and prema bios. 

 

EDIT: I manage to make it shutdown again , power led blinking , with ctrl+alt+del , I booted straight to bios but noticed intel me fw was 0.0.0.0 and intel icc gave the library error. I presume it's linked ? I never paid attention if intel me was 0.0.0.0 before :(

 

EDIT2: I made a video some days ago when I found that intel smart connect makes windows not boot and intel me fw is 0.0.0.0 on it. I already upgraded to premas latest ME fw. Intel smart connect enabled still makes windows unbootable and after reboot intel ME is 0.0.0.0

 

Thank you.

Just flash my Mod again. this time make sure to remove the AC Adapter for 30s after the system has auto-shutdown itself.

I already done that twice. I have yet to see the boot problem happen with secure boot disabled. 

 

The Intel smart connect still makes windows bsod while booting thought. Haven't found a way around that yet.

Your ME Firmware is not running, hence the 0.0.0. The system can't work normally like that.

When you flash the Mod make sure the AC Adapter is connected and you run "step2" immediately after the shutdown that happens after "step1" or it won't be able the re-flash the ME. Don't flash any stand-alone ME updates after that.

Perhaps I explained the wrong way. My intel me is working fine but when you enable intel smart connect , save and reboot, Windows will give you bsod and reboot. If you then enter bios intel me is 0.0.0.0.

Like you said, if you shutdown, intel me will reappear only to be lost again after another windows bsod.

I sent you a message with a YouTube video showing all of this some time ago.

OH, OK, then better don't use smart connect.

I think your XP941 may need a second longer to initialize...flash my v2 vBIOS Mod to the GPU and see if that helps.

I put a tweak in there for external screens, which may also help with your SSD.

Already done that too lol but granted didn't re enable secure boot yet. I also suspected the xp941 initialization time but...

 

Im trying to get wireless wol working and smart connect should fix that but windows will not boot.

Any help on that matter?? I have all the settings and drivers and power options correct and confirmed that the WiFi link is maintained during suspend but it will not wake up...

Delete your current secure boot keys in BIOS and set them freshly...

Sorry to sound dumb but I just have secure boot enable and standard , not custom. Following that error I just did my usual ctrl alt del and the laptop booted normally. Have no idea why secure boot enabled causes me issues although I need more time to see if that extra delay the V2 vbios has helps or not.

      Hello fellow technicians, I have acer e1-531 that after installing an i5 (from factory it comes with a celeron b960) started to shut down after 30 minutes, searching the internet I found that it would be necessary to make a modification in the bios to accept this processor, could someone help me with this case?

      Hello everyone,
      My new laptop Thunderobot Zero 11800H_RTX3060 have a locked bios. I tried CPU undervolt via ThrottleStop utility and Intel XTU utility, but they didn't work. I heard I need to unlock advanced settings in BIOS to unlock these utilities. So, I need help to unlock hidden advanced settings. Thanks!

      I have a p150sm which has a seemingly dead 780m due to a perpetual error 43 which came after a big BSOD about 6 months ago. I upgraded the laptop to a 980m and modded the inf files. The upgrade was perfectly fine for a week. One day, i left the laptop and something related to sleep or power may have caused the laptop to shut off. Since then, the laptop with the 980m won't boot. I tried many things like resetting cmos, taking out the hardware and putting it back in, and resetting bios, and buying a 230W adapter. Nothing worked. The laptop works fine with the old dead 780m in there, but now when the 980m is in there, holding the power button generates a green light flash and then the power LED goes back to orange. No sounds, maybe one tick, and that's it. What is left to try?

      i want to ask two favours and a question from this community ..
       
      1.) Can someone mod my 940 mx to increase the target temperature and allow higher overclocking than 135hzband voltage control
       
      2.) Allowing my i5 7200U to be undervolted to reduce overall heat 
       
      The question : I repasted my gpu and cpu cleaned it thoroughly, made sure twice everything is connected properly, use a cooling pad and yet the upper portion of my chasis above f1-f12 keys is so hot that i can roast peanuts on it. 
       
      (if i left out any info or missed something please reply i would really love to have a page that has everything for people who have this laptop specifically for light gaming.)
