    Thanks zfactor for the info.
    I made a bootable usb but with the 1.008 bios found on this thread:
    http://www.laptopvideo2go.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=17753
    I'm able to update video driver without downclocking (167.46, xp sp3)
    The problem is that I still see the white border on the post screen, I don't have any overclocking features and worse of all I don't have any way to control fan speed, so this is loud as hell.
    Do you know what can be happening?

    not sure.. was it one of my bios' i made with the boot screen? if so i dont know why you would have a problem i have sooo many people using them with no issues.. if not then we would have to start over.

    what i would suggest doing is to flash the newest keyboard firmware 1.00.07sh this is NOT THE BIOS.. but a update for the keyboard and fans control.

    then i would reflash the bios with a 1.00.08 FULL VERSION.. meaning do not use a phlash backup copy. and i mean a CLEVO COPY.. not one they made over there. you need the original one.

    that should fix the issues but may restrict you from oc'ing again, if so you will have to try that bios again..

    it sounds like that version may not have done a full install of the new bios and instead "refreshed" it..

    You are right, I used the bios update from the link I posted.
    Just one question to make sure I understood you:
    If I run the KB update and then apply the clevo 1.008 full bios update, will I keep the Fan control, while being able to use newer vga drivers without downclocking?

    Actually two:
    Does the 1.007sh that you posted have downclocking problems?
    (Is the only reason why I use 1.008)

    Thanks in advance

    okay ill try this again lol..

    there are two separate bios' you HAVE TO HAVE. one is the keyboard "firmware" and the other is the actual system bios.

    you will need to flash BOTH of them in order to have the bios at version 1.00.08, and then after that flash the 1.00.07sh and this DOES NOT CHANGE THE 1.00.08 that remains the same the only thing that then changes is the keyboard firmware.

    does that help maybe more???

    Great info on the usb drive thing but just so you know.
    This place Rapidshare SUCKS TO HIGH HEAVEN.
    PLEASE for the love of sanity don't ever use it again.
    You can't read the stupid security codes . When you get them wrong
    it's back in the queue for another min. AND after 3 failures you get knocked completely out for "a few minutes" however long that is.
    Can't even find a way to tell them they are losing business.
    Use something else like yousendit or something.
    "was that too negative?"
    :) anyhow great article

    So I have a Sager NP5792 and I was told that updating to .08 will fix any DC issues on the newest drivers. I followed the instructions exactly (even made the clevo folder), but when I get to c:Clevo> and type prompt refresh or prompt phlash16.... no flashing? All that happens is the word refresh or phlash16 appears a line below. Am I doing something wrong? I tried with and w/o spaces between words. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thnx!

    If possible could you send an e-mail to akostrikin@hotmail.com .
