Well I have an interesting issue, I was going to get around to AS5ing everything in my m1710, and decided, hell why not adjust the pll frequencies.
Never do this if you haven't double checked the crystal and motherboard, period.
My m1710 just got back after some very costly repairs. I've been having to use a 150 dollar laptop I got off ebay that is 500mhz and barely only supports dx8. Just awesomeo.
Anyways here's my thinger, since they ended up replacing EVERYTHING, I need to reflash my 7950 go gtx card, and I plan on finally doing a driver update. I just wanted to know a few things guys.
Firstly, Is it too difficult to replace the CPU? I've found someone who may be willing to part with their T7600G and want to upgrade it by putting in in there (don't worry, I'll be AS5ing the VC and CPU and even northbridge for sure.) My biggest issue is with the palm rest itself, hopefully it's not too challenging. (or breaking)
Secondly, I was curious about the drivers. I never had an option for threaded optimization in my drivers, but also heard that the later nvidia drivers stop overclocking. I'd also rather keep the classic control panel. So I was curious if the 90 drivers, (specifically the 92.77 or 94.22) supported it and if they made a fair difference in fps.
By the way the drivers being used now are the stock 84.69, they're stable but I think if the newer drivers help more with more options then it's worth doing.
On top of this, I've gotta invest in norton ghost so I can clone my hard-drive.
Hell after this I might even try overclocking this crappy laptop, putting xp on it, as5 and reselling it for more money :P.
Lots of stuff on the go, and I know you guys are all busy too, I appreciate the answers you give which have always been quality, hell I learned how to flash from here.
Thanks again! Myke.
