I have successfully enabled VT on my Acer 8930G laptop using bios 1.13 in windows vista 32. All credit goes to Marcan from this link [url] and the posters who have made this possible. Tjeute post below explains how PLEASE NOTE FOLLOW DIRECTIONS CAREFULLY IF IN DOUBT PLEASE ASK
This is what I did in an Windows environment: downloaded the Bios from the Acer site. I downloaded the 1.13 bios, and ran the Insideflash utility. Donít know what the differences are between 1.10 and 1.13, but the Windows Eperience Index gave higher rates on the CPU and the GPU parts.
After flashing I filled in a backup name (f.i. c:ackupbios.fd) in the platform.ini file and executed the Insideflash again, but did not flash the Bios this time. After exiting Indsideflash the backup file had appeared on the desired location.
Then I installed Python 2.6.2 for Windows. I copied the vtenbable.py script as well as the backup bios to the Python directory. After that I opened an elevated DOS prompt, went to the Python dir (cd c:python26) and typed ďvtenable.py backupbios.fd 8930gvt-bios.fdĒ.
Finally I copied the 8930gvt-bios.fd to the Insideflash directory, erased the supplied bios file and renamed 8930gvt-bios.fd to KM2_113.fd. Then I executed Insideflash for the last time and flashed.
Recently I moved to windwos 8.1 from windwos 7 and i have hp pavilion dv6-6b19ej, before when i was using windwos7 beats audio was working perfectly and i was able to enable and disable them usnig (fn+b).

I¬†want to run a Virtual PC . After googling I got some instruction. Some of the people suggest to change in bios. They suggested go to Bios-> Security -> System Security -> Enable virtual. But when I tried that. I didn't find the system security under Security. what should I do? How can I enable virtualization in my pc?¬†
I just received a new¬†HP EliteBook 840 G1 and i'm trying to use the biometric finger print device. I'm on win8 x64, Ive installed the drivers: ¬† Validity FingerPrint Sensor Driver 22.214.171.124 Installed HP simplepass 126.96.36.1996 ¬† But the i can't enable the windows logon, it keeps telling me my password is wrong (which is not true)...And the biometric reader is not recognized in the control panel... ¬† Attaching some screenshots .....
i'm using lenovo notebook 3000 G430 and i've install windows 7. it seems my notebook cannot enable the wireless lan. i've turn the switch on but cannot press the function key (FN+F5). i've install all the vista driver in the CD but to no avail.
I just bought this laptop.. installed win 8.1 and downloaed the drivers from the support page as mentioned in the forum. But i still can't enable crossfire, catalyst center does not show an option, and GPU-z says its available but disabled.Also the memory for R5 graphics shows 0MB in gpuz. but control center shows 512MB..
My computer: HP Envy Sleekbook 6 - 1153eo Windows 8 Pro ¬† AHCI is currently disabled on my computer and I wish to enable it to get the most performance out of it. It can easily be enabled via the windows registry but to get it working i need to be sure that AHCI is currently enabled in the BIOS aswell. When I enter the BIOS there just isnt any advanced options available, only time and date and other basics. How do i find out wether or not AHCI is enabled in the BIOS? How do i get access to the advanced options in the BIOS to turn on AHCI (if it isnt already enabled that is)?
1. Synaptics driver doesn't work properly, will grind everything to halt, mouse disappears, external mouse will center on the middle bottom of screen all the time, touchpad will not work. This with the version posted at support.dell.com for 1640/Win7 right now, and the version downloaded direct from synaptics.com.
2. Dell QuickSet crashes at bootup time, same download as above.
3. Webcam crashes often so seriously a bootup is required, now in testing phase with Vista 64 drivers.
Sorry if this is posted in the wrong area but I tried one 2 days ago and had no reply's (which I know is not indicative of this fine forum ). To the ppoint. Adore my new laptop.
Not so fond of Vista. Like that is news. Anyhow I just want to know if any xps 1640 owner has achieved an install of Win 7 and managed to get all the various dell additions to work, ie dell camera facial recog, pinch touch pad, fual monitor etc.
I have an XPS 1640 and an ancient Dell Insiprion 9300 (1.6 GHz and just 2 GB ram) with XP.
Running identical programs on identical machines,. the XPS (2.6 GHz processor and 7200 RPM HD) is MUCH slower running programs (e.g., website creating programs, photoshop, etc.) The culprit must be the Vista.
I see the topic raised here before but no real clear answers. Has anyone eliminated the Vista on the 1640 completely and run the XP in its place .....
I was just checking for drivers for my 1640 (I recently re-installed Windows 7 RC 64 bit) and lo and behold, Dell is now showing 32 and 64 bit Windows 7 operating system choices for the drivers... The available drivers you see when choosing 64 bit Windows 7 are certainly not all there by a long shot and most of them appear to be the same as the Vista drivers but it is at least a promising sign! The new Quickset driver appears to be specifically for Windows 7.
For those of you that have a 1640 and have upgraded from Vista to 7, how long did the install take you? And my second question is...did you run into any complications with the upgrade process that I should be aware of before I start it on my wife's laptop?
I bought a new G510 Lenovo Laptop but I cant quite use the dedicated amd vga. Everytime I install the given amd drivers from lenovo's official page and I check the Device Manager in windows 8 I see that the only enabled graphic card is the integrated Intel HD 4600. I tried to install the Intel drivers first but I get a error message that says that the computer does not meet the minimum requierments for installing that software.
