    Here is the link. M14x A08 BIOS, the fix and enhancement description said " update new VBIOS for N12-GTX2 graphics card " I wonder what is that "N12-GTX2"?

    I also notice that there's a link to the A07 version where it fix "Modify SATA speed limit to SATA2"

    EDIT: I do some googling, found out the the N12-GTX2 is a codename to NVIDIA's 500M series GPU, so what the A08 do is the update the VBIOS for the 500M series. That might fix those who have problem with unable to install the NVIDIA driver I guess. For the File Not Found, that's Dell's problem and I've let them know the problem, it should be fix in few days.

    I keed I keed, but honestly two faulty Alienware's made me switch to a Mac, and I don't think I'll ever look back. Just gotta do my gaming on the 360 instead of my laptop.
    Aww sad to hear that, oh well maybe because of you're not a hardcore PC gamer, because we PC gamer all have to endure that problems, for me I'd rather switch to the M17x instead of MBP, because tbh, it is a dead end for gaming, as for console, I also like to use them but for some game, you wont get the full potential out of it, for e.g like BF3's 64 player and Skyrim's countless mods.

    Seems like Dells HTTP Link is broken. Found the Bios on their FTP Server tho:

    Does that mean if i update my bios to A08 which surpasses A07 my Sata Speed would stay at SATA2 even if I take out RST?
