    @drhex give me an email address and I'll send you the latest BIOS 1.01.14.
    I received today from Sager, works fine.

    My Clevo is not a Sager, so I don't think it is wise to switch bios-series.
    Anyway, I downloaded EC 1.00.12 and bios 1.01.14 via the link in the first post in this thread, and installed them.
    Still no USB power while suspended and the touchpad is still auto-enabled on wake-from suspend.
    Does it work the same way for machines that run Windows?

    I started having issues using the Bios 1.01.05 and EC/KBC 1.00.06 on my P170HM3. Random crashes and lockups.

    I went back to Bios 1.01.03 and EC/KBC 1.00.05 and haven't had any more of those issues.

    So I can't recommend Bios 1.01.05 or EC/KBC 1.00.06. I don't know which one has the issue but they sure didn't improve anything for me over what is stable.

    Don`t flash back to any Sager Bios now...it will brick your computer and you will have to send it in... ;)

    Here´s a weird bug that i get with latest Bios and EC for P170HM:
    Turn on your laptop open IRST, if you have a SSD Sata3 you will notice it is in fact operating in SATA3 mode = 6GB/S, but if you Restart the computer it will turn to SATA2 mode = 3GB/s, this only happen if you restart so i always have to SHUTDOWN.

    I´m talking about this:

    If i "Restart" it turns into SATA2 3GB/s, if i shutdown and then turn on again it will work fine.

    My P170HM is runing 2x Intel 510SSD (non raid at the moment - it´s AHCI) will soon go back to RAID

    I have a Clevo W150HNM/W170HN Notebook and my problem is the fan speed. Sometimes it's complete off and most of the time the fan is very loud.

    Is there any chance to set up the fan speed manually?

    Have a Clevo bios installed on my Sager NP8170 ATM.

    I read somewhere that flashing sager on top of Clevo bricks you because after the EC flash shuts down your computer, it refuses to boot because the bios and the EC disagree about some cert. or something (I dunno... I read it on the internet. it has to be true.)

    2 part question:

    1. How retarded would it be to flash them back to back without rebooting? (to possibly prevent the check that causes the system to not boot when going clevo->sager)
    2. If there is such a check, then how come the system boots fine in between the EC and BIOS flashes when going from Sager->Clevo?

    Who is your dealer or reseller? I would ask them first. :)
