    The (USD 5 incl. transport) expresscard 34 with 720202 chipset works perfect. I didn't need to change any power saving setting on bios level or Windows 10 level like Renesas usb extensible hostcontroller power saving. Mine sits in the slot very strong, so the card is allways in the laptop. By the way: i have upgraded the bios with the help of this download: https://ftp.csl-computer.com/pub/dr...B_34mm_NEC_Renesas/USB_EXPRESSCARD_DRIVER.zip

    Hello!

    I spend few hours to get all missing Windws 10 drivers except quick launch buttons.
    For example: pressing FN+F10/F11 does not chance screen brightness.

    Can anybody recommend a working dvd 2.5 inch ssd caddy? I have allready tested a cheap aliexpress caddy and - even with the diagnostic lead removed (see http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/hp-elitebook-8560p-wont-shutdown.655065) it does not work.
    Edit:
    Now I have bought a neuftech caddy. This one works - dip switches set to hp - but I could not boot, until I changed the bios settings (thanks nando!), see http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/hp-elitebook-2560p-owners-lounge.586353/page-7#post-8234651

    Is there a 1080p or better screen for the 2560p or 2570p. I really like these but the resolution sucks.

    Sadly no, the mobo of 2560p and 2570p has only single channel LVDS wired so no 1080p possible, it's been mentioned in the thread from TechInferno.

    Mine works fine. I see in the installed programs list: HP HotKey Support 4.5.9.1
    Also, maybe you need to install Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable x86 9.0.30729
    (not sure about last point, but it was installed on the same date with Hotkey Support)

    I presently am operating from a 2560p, specs below, and I need a few questions answered if you would all be so kind.

    As follows;
    Can the f.50 bios be revered back to f.01?
    Does f.50 bios support DDR3 1600?
    Does anyone have experience with the XCSOURCE EXP GDC Beast Dock v8.0 eGPU and DSDT override?
    How hard is DSDT override?


    Tech Specs:
    CPU: Intel i7 2720QM @ 3.1Ghz
    RAM: 1x 8gb A-Data 1600mhz 11-11-11-28 (running: 1333 9-9-9-24 T1)?
    ---is it worth the upgrade to Corsair 2x8gb 1600mhz 9-9-9-24? (f.50 to f.01)?
    HDD: Crucial 256gb M4 260w/500r
    BATT: CWK 7800mAh 9 Cell
    eGPU:EXP GDC Beast Dock v8.0 GPU undecided, thinking of older gen. card to bypas DSDT override
    eGPU PSU: EVGA 500watt-Single 12v Rail @ 40A-2x 8pin PCI-e modules
