    Hey guys, I know it's been a long time but I have a question to ask: Is TME unlocked on this M11x?

    EDIT: Looks like it is. I followed Dufus's guide a few pages back and I can't set byte 0E. :confused:

    If it's using an ICS PLL, then the TME_READBACK register 9 bit 6=0 which indicates that it's TME-unlocked.
    Can see a TME-locked PLL setfsb diagnosis screenshot here.

    Have you tried to move the slider to see if can set a different FSB?

    I tried moving the slider and it hard locks the laptop.

    This is the best I can do ATM:

    At least I got SpeedStep and the 6.5 multiplier back :D.
    Problems with overclocking:
    1. I think RAM is holding me back- I tried higher but it crashes. I need to edit some SPDs.
    2. I don't understand how Register 14 increases clockspeed- I just added 10 to 68 for 78 to get a 30mhz increase. Adding 10 again got me to 260mhz. But putting in 69 or 98 gives me a blackscreen. :confused:

    If you contact abo (creator of setfsb) he can probably fix whatever setfsb is doing wrong that causes the lockup.

    Looks like everyone with the m11x should check the TME bit.

    @DavyGT - congrats on getting setfsb to work on the M11x. The Asus UL80VT folk got their SU7300 systems cranked up to a stable 1.9Ghz from a base of 1.73Ghz (266Mhz FSB BSEL turbo33 O/C). Something to aim for.

    He added support for the 387 already but it's only in the shareware version, which means I can't automate the overclock until I get it.

    Rather, I have to edit RAM SPD. Interestingly, it supports running at 1218mhz, which means I just have to edit those timings into the slowest speed.
    More important, I have to work out how does register 14 increase speed- I'm just guessing ATM. :eek:
