    Hi guys i just bought an 2920xm and i tried to overclock it with no success due to XTU.
    i tried every single version and the multiplier stays greyed, i ve seen around google that XTU 2.1 works with this laptop and 2920xm but what the heck it doesn't start...after the splash screen show up a popup telling me " the service cannot be contacted"
    if someone had this issue and solved please just tell me how.

    Thanks!

    Okay solved. Just it doesn't work on Win10, but works fine on Win 7, i've installed also win 7 in this way i can OC on it and use Win 10 with my custom clocks due that XTU write the stuff on Bios and that's cool. :D
