Re: X62 problems, quirks, and fixes

Ah, thanks, I hoped that somewho else tries it ;-) OK, it seems to be indeed a memtest86+ problem then - see also the strange frequency and CL-values. They seem to be random, and after a short Windows boot there are zero. On one of the laptops I got one bit flip with 4x memtester 1536M, but during a...

Re: X62 problems, quirks, and fixes

I've got the problem that memcheck+ 5.01 hangs hard at 21/66% when I use 2x 4 GB DDR3 modules. Tried 3x2 different parts, 2 had 1333 MHz, 4 1600 MHz. And in 2 62 mobos. Single channel is working fine... Bios problem?

P.S. I used always the force smp option.

Re: X62 problems, quirks, and fixes

There is a known interface to interact with the ec, which e.g. https://github.com/hirschmann/nbfc/wiki/EC-probing-tool uses. Works also under linux (albeit the need to compile yourself). Reading give some meaningful results (e.g. one temperature and some power stats), writing is also possible with t...

Re: X62 problems, quirks, and fixes

Hio :-) Yes, I'm playing a bit with the EC's firmware ;-) I hope that I get some further insights. Yesterday I compared some versions and identified the main algorithm for the fan (I hope). Theoretically I should be able to put the old algorithm in the new firmware, but to do this I'll need some mor...

Re: 51nb's X62: latest update

Hmpf, it seems I missed the second batch? Will there be a third - perhaps with some adaptions for x61 tablets? I would buy 5(!) at once. Edit: I found the formular https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSe48cWML5SV61Nfhbc6phu71qXmMCqHO2pJb14MB_5QfRGKEw/viewform?c=0&w=1&fbzx=-5003218490465966000 an...
