Sony :: Officially Released A BIOS Update To Enable VT On 4th Generation SR

Aug 14, 2009

There were many SR4 laptops sold in May 2009 in China suffering the problem of stopping responding randomly and frequently, which caused quite a lot of hot threads discussing.

Sony identified the problem as some bugs in BIOS firmware and hence released an update to fix this.

Official site:[url] (Chinese site, Google Translate may work)

Download link: [url]

As a "side effect" some customers noticed that Sony has officially enabled the option of VT in BIOS settings!

This is quite unbelievable according to the usual style of Sony. Maybe it is because of the pressure from XP mode in the upcoming Windows 7.

Unfortunately the BIOS update still does not give SLIC 2.1 so to activate Windows 7 we still need SLIC 2.1 from Lenovo or other brands.

Sony :: Howto Enable VT On Vaio Z *tested*H2 Bios Hack

Oct 5, 2009

I`m very happy to have found a way to enable VT.

If you doenst know what VT is - YOU DONT NEED IT ^^

At first i was a little bit afraid, to take the risk to hack the Bios, but finally i take it.

Not only VT works now fine, also the advanced Bios Setup Screen, let me finetune everything i ever dream from. You could tweak many things, dont do there anything, if you doent know what you do.

Ok, back to Topic:

After some Internetresearch i found this link:


Please follow the instructions exactly. I have do also the same reverse for testing - you could go back, if you want.

But: with every Bios tweaking - you lose your warranty.

Here my Statement on this Blog. PLEASE, look there there if your Model is supportet - FIRST.....................

Dell :: BIOS Revision A09 Released

Nov 24, 2008

Please update to the revision immediately and post your results here. It seems importance is rated as Recommended and not urgent, so I'm not sure whether or not the system downclock and fan issues have been fixed, which is quite an urgent matter.

If someone could get a log file of the changes from Dell that would be great.

Update: Thanks Weegie:

1. Added support for BIOS that is signed.
2. Updated to PSA build 4117.
3. Updated thermal table.
4. Fixed the issue where system is slow to boot to internal hard drive after failed PXE boot exits.
5. Fixed the issue where Some BIOS Setup parameters are not accessible with only the keyboard.
6. Fixed the issue where system will automatically shut down at resuming from S3.
7. Fixed the issue where the time of BIOS power event log in Setup is wrong for power button event.
8. Fixed the issue where presentation mode cannot be turned on/off from the DCP.

These things look sOoOoOoO important .

During the flash, the only thing that appeared was "Updating Keyboard Controller ROM", but I don't know if that's regular or not. I will be gaming with this new revision and posting results soon.

All in all, nothing to see here. Seems like Dell either a) does not read our threads, or b) does not care. Nothing to see here .

Dell :: M4400 BIOS A13 Released, UT3 FPS Doubled On My FX1700M

Mar 25, 2009

First of all, I have no idea if this has already been covered on the "Precision M4400 Owner's Lounge" thread, I have not been following it for it getting longer and longer.

So, I opened a new thread to tell everyone that Dell has released BIOS A13 for the M4400. I installed it yesterday, and not only is my machine quieter under light load, its graphics performance is also higher - much higher, actually.

I used to think that my FX1700M was not affected by the downclocking, but now I stand corrected.

It WAS indeed downclocking heavily as it seems. When I was playing some UT3 a couple of hours ago, I suddenly actually had double(!) the frame rate compared to what I had with BIOS A12.

I maxed out some settings to see what would happen, and at settings that I was not able to make it run smooth some weeks ago I now got 30 to 40 frames per second

Dell :: Mini 12 Officially Dead

Mar 4, 2009

I just got the latest issue of the Dell home magazine in the mail today. I was thumbing through like I always do, and happened to spot something different on the "system/brand overview" pages. (pages 4 and 5)

Among the inspiron systems, the mini 9 and 10 were listed along with the new Inspiron 15. Just to make sure I wasnt missing things, i turned to the pages describing the minis and the 12 was nowhere to be found.

It's a shame too, as I really liked the looks of the 12.

Dell :: BIOS Hack To Enable Intel VT And/or AHCI On Inspiron

Nov 20, 2009

when I got my 9400/E1705 I was always sad for not having the AHCI option available in the BIOS.

This was asked for so many times:

- "Notebooks BIOS should support AHCI"

- "Enable AHCI in Dell Notebook BIOS"

- "Please give us BIOS support for SATA AHCI mode on Inspirons!"
Please give us BIOS support for SATA AHCI mode on Inspirons!

- "Give us real bios control"

- "Bios release"

In the Sony forum, they have found a way to activate these options even if they're not present in the BIOS:

How to Enable Intel VT and AHCI on a Napa/Santa Rosa platform Phoenix BIOS Vaio laptop
The only item you'll need is a bootable DOS media. Click one of these links for instruction for creating a bootable floppy disk (with USB floppy drive) or usb stick.USB flash1 or USB flash2 or CDR (add modified table file to image before writing).

1.Download symcmos and copy it to your bootable DOS media. This utility is used to modify your Phoenix BIOS settings. Also, download a DOS text editor and copy it to the media if you feel comfortable editing a file in DOS.

2.Go to the BIOS by pressing F2 during start-up, or when the VAIO logo appears, and reset the settings to factory default. Save and reboot.

3.Go back to the BIOS and enable the boot from external devices option. Save and reboot.

4.Press ESC when the VAIO logo appears to bring up the boot selection menu and select the bootable DOS media. At the prompt, type "symcmos -v2 -lDefault.txt", without quotes, and note that there's no space in between the flag and filename. This will create a literal symbol table from the NVRAM named Default.txt which contains all the current BIOS settings. Reboot by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del. If that doesn't work, hold the power button until the notebook turns off.

5.Use the DOS text editor (or boot to another OS and use a text editor there) to edit the generated Default.txt file. Change the following lines and save the modified file to something else (e.g. modified.txt):

For Napa SZs - R0112N0

AHCI: (015C) [0000] ---> (015C) [0001]

VT-x: (0354) [0000] ---> (0354) [0001]...
