    Kizwan - there is a valuable thread within the m11x forum under alienware...
    http://forum.notebookreview.com/alienware-m11x/463095-m11x-clock-generator-ics9lprs387bklf.html

    There is a lot of talks about the motherboard, the pll number, etc... One thing that may be a challenge is that currently our bios allows for OC in the bios. 6.5 x 266 = 1.73ghz. However it also lowers the voltage, from our stock settings to maintain cool temps when OC is enabled... (I know you would think they would have given us more voltage right??)
    I think it's possible to raise our FSB with the understanding that we need to at least have our original voltage, rather than the lowered to begin the OC process. I hope you are able to help us get 200 x 300 extra mhz.

    DavyGT - Thanks for the heads up. Let me what I can do to help.

    Best Wishes, StevenX

    Please make sure your notebook can recover corrupted BIOS with CRISIS disk before flashing BIOS with this modified BIOS image. I will not responsible for any problem. Good luck. :)

    I'll look into this. I will post the modified BIOS image when it ready. For the mean time, please make sure your notebook can recover corrupted BIOS with CRISIS disk.

    hello kizwan,

    Thank you for the instruction, but i do not completly understand. Do i have to create a discovery disk /drive, by activating/executing a file (????.exe?), part of the recovery files to be downloaded; or do i just have to put the downloaded recovery files on a disk/drive, and exchange the bios file by my own laptop bios file and put it on a disk/drive?

    Do i have to change boot settings prior to the procedure, in the bios?

    greetings
    fiesta

    kizwan, thank you for the bios and it did work but has predicted changing the new values made the laptop to not post. Had to remove motherboard and desolder the cmos battery.

    please remove the link so no one else "bricks" the laptop.

    thank you for your time on this !!

    Will the Bios you posted for 5630 be compatible with my 5630Z Extensa? I plan to run OSX.
