    Unless you're experiencing any firmware-related problems, that's probably best to leave it as is.

    Happy to try to help. :vbsmile:

    Hello, I already solved the problem! I bought a new notebook. Now I need to decide what to do with the old one. It is still good and is working very well, however I am considering just to work with it at home. Outside home, a light weigth laptopmakes a lot of difference, mainly on public transportation (buss and subway)

    True, thinner and lighter is easier to manage while out and about. It's always good to have a backup system you can keep safe at home. :)

    Of course! It has a great 15.7'' screen size. It is perfect for those who loves to code, watch movies, etc..

    Someone could advice me how could I check on BIOS or any other place if is possible to change the CPU (the current is a i5 2520M) for a new generation CPU ? I mean, the current i5 has a TDP of 35W, and I would like to use one that dissipate less power (8W for example). Is there any candidate to substitute it and use the same socket ?

    AFAIK, the BIOS & socket (PPGA on your system vs FCPGA on later CPUs) limit you to 2nd Gen chips, your best upgrade probably being a 27xxQM or 29xxXM.

    Hello,
    I searched a lot of information today about m2 drives. For some reason, Samsung 950 Pro can boot a P650SE, but a 960 evo cannot.
    Someone tried the 970 evo plus?

    I use a 960 Evo in mine with no issues. It came from the factory with it in it.

    You have a P650HS, not a P650SA.

    I think you only make it compatible with a modded bios.

    Send an email to @Donald@HIDevolution or tech support at HID and ask if there is a new firmware for your laptop. You won't find any firmware on Clevo's driver download website.
