    No way to mod BIOS for this machine without tear it down and access BIOS chip directly, dump it, modify ME FW and flash it back using external programmer.

    Don't really know where to find this on google, but can anyone tell me what the blinking white light does below the touchpad?

    It depends, on default setting it is battery charging indicator. But, if you press Fn+H on your keyboard, it will serve as hard disk activity light.

    Just bought a wdc 2.5 hdd 1tb 5400rpm. I have installed it, and hard drive runs fine, there is no problem at all.

    But looks like it doesn't fit in case as you can see in the picture, there is little gap. I can't pull it down cause it's kinda too thick

    Is there any specific thickness of hard drive for this laptop?
    I don't even know that laptop hard drive has different thickness

    Slight update.

    The seller sent me another panel* within the day of me emailing them about the issue. It was hassle-free and fast. Very nice! So far the new panel doesn't have any issue.

    For the hardware ID in HWinfo, they told me that OEMs often send their panels to the Dell, HP, Lenovo, etc. who will load in their own firmwares; as such, panels not from official sources don't automatically come with firmware, so it's possible that a Samsung panel from a third party comes with a BOE firmware because an intermediary will have loaded the panel with a compatible firmware to make it functional. Seems plausible.

    *with a pre-paid stamp to send them back the broken panel

    Hi! Me and my brother's 7577s are facing hdmi out stutters on TV screen while watching videos or playing games. The laptop's screen remains smooth thou. We have tried different Tvs and hdmi cables so it's pretty obvious that the problem is with our laptops' settings. We have tried changing power plan settings but the problem still persists.

    Is the wireless upgrade to the Intel 9260NGW recommended? Any noticeable benefits to indoor WiFi stability?
