    Yes, everything related to Laptop Tools and all four individual apps was completely deleted - including the downloaded installation files, laptop was rebooted, and then everything was re-downloaded and re-installed. No go. Fix was uninstalling and re-installing KB4476976 - as soon as that was done, presto - all was well again.

    Hummmmm there was indeed some kind of bug with a MS update and QT. It was reported immediately by the community. Not sure if it was related.

    This may be a long stretch, BUT there may be a way of getting Clevo's R&D details directly: https://solutionsdirectory.intel.com/member-roster/Clevo

    By filling in that form.

    I'm seeing some changes with how they'll be handling drivers, eg for Synaptics that may be of concern to you:

    1. https://www.synaptics.com/company/news/clevo-securepad-gamma

    2. https://www.synaptics.com/company/news/clevo-selects-securepad

    Some of the major headaches, eg:

    Could've been alleviated had Clevo's R&D supplied you with the requested information.
    Having this project backed up by major re-sellers would also send Clevo a strong message as to why its' ever needed: The bottom line being sales, guaranteed by better support for existing product lines.
    Reverse engineering isn't trivial work.

    Hello,
    my laptop is a Clevo P950HP6 (marketed by Avell in my country) I am thinking of buying the licenses for Obsidian software, could you help me to clarify some doubts?

    Do you need to uninstall Clevo Control Center to install Obsidian Control Station, Obsidian update and Fan Control?

    Is there a way to update Bios with just one Click, even if my reseller does not have a partnership with Obsidian? (I mean, put the files in some folder, something like that)?

    Hello
    To use the updater only there is no need to remove Clevo Control Center.
    To use everything (Control Station / Fan Control / Keyboard LED) you need to remove CLEVO Control Center.
    We only provide BIOS Flashing tools, not the actual BIOS. Our BIOS are for our laptops only. I guess you need to get the BIOS from your reseller or just search from a stock CLEVO BIOS.

    [QUOTE = "João @ OBSIDIAN-PC, post: 10855950, membro: 421691"] Olá
    Para usar o atualizador, não há necessidade de remover o Clevo Control Center.
    Para usar tudo (Control Station / Fan Control / Keyboard LED) você precisa remover o CLEVO Control Center.
    Nós fornecemos apenas ferramentas BIOS Flashing, não o BIOS atual. Nosso BIOS é apenas para nossos laptops. Eu acho que você precisa obter o BIOS do seu revendedor ou apenas pesquisar em um BIOS CLEVO de ações. [/ QUOTE]

    I already have the bios for my equipment.
    I just need the instructions to upgrade.
    Can the "BIOS Flashing tools" tool also be purchased? or is it part of the software?

    I am upgrading the bios of my P950HP6 device which is in version 1.05.07 for bios version 1.05.14. and EC 1.05.09.
    Is there an order, between Bios (FLASH.nsh) and EC (FLASH.nsh), which one should I run first?
