    Hi,

    Do you continue using that configuration (specially the QX9300) with no troubles of overheating or other issues? I have read that the maximum power of the QX9300 is greater than the original one. I have a P8600 now. Can I upgrade the CPU? I am really in love with this laptop.

    Regards

    Hi, I have a 8930G, where a BIOS update went wrong. Now the laptop starts but there is no POST screen, just a black screen with fans at max. Also laptop turns on on its own when power cord is connected.
    The laptop apparently reads the crisis cd I made for a moment, but nothing happens, even when I left it for a good 10 minutes.
    Is there something like a clamp programmer so I can program the chip directly? Or is the laptop dead?

    - What Q chips?
    - battery drain it's a firmware bios problem, i read something about that on another thread
    update your bios and you will be fine.
    - about random shutdowns i don't know nothing about that...

    Hi, yes Quad core chips Q9000, Q9100 etc

    My Bios is latest version but I will flash again when I have fixed the shutdown issue, which I think is the decoupling capacitor (Nec Tokin) behind CPU, this could also cause the power drain I think, have to do that at weekend
