    Just tried updating my Intel Bluetooth drivers since they are connected to the same USB hub or port. Hopefully that will do it...

    Am I correct that there is another RAM slot on the motherboard? I have the 8GB RAM that is in the underside slot but was curious about adding another 4GB to the second slot (4GB is quite cheap these days). I already had my Chronos opened up before to put in a SSD. I found it a painful experience to be honest.

    I did read through this entire thread last year and I seem to remember some people saying it was a pointless upgrade....can't be sure though. The forum could do with having a "search thread" option!!! I'm not reading through 200 pages twice.

    I checked some pictures of the motherboard on Google Images. The other side of the board has the RAM chips soldered. Not removable or upgradable.

    Hi couldn't find this info yet..

    Do somebody know where is the BIOS chip located in this laptop?

    I need to extract it to re flash it.

    Thanks!

    Does anyone have any trouble with their Wifi? I had Linux Mint installed for a long time and had no trouble. Changed back to Windows 10 two weeks ago and the wifi connection keeps dropping. I know it's not my router because everything else is fine. The Chronos keeps losing connection or changing to "Limited" (which basically is the same thing).

    I then remembered it was a little quirky back when Windows 7 was on it when I first got it. The only thing I can think of is that it could be a driver problem? Correct? I mean it worked fine in Linux Mint so surely that's the only difference?

    I cam here for a recommendation. Since I own this laptop, does anybody know of any other (modern) laptop that is similar to this one. I just need an upgrade in GPU. Looking mostly for good gpu, screen and sound quality.

    Any idea why this laptop would not boot off of a Samsung 850 Evo SSD? Boots fine to my usb drive and installs windows just fine, but when I remove the usb drive it just goes to a boot menu and wont boot off of the ssd

    How did you install Windows on the 850 EVO? This notebook has ExpressCache which can confuse the Windows installer resulting in the boot files being installed on the non-bootable ExpressCache. See this guide about how to work around the problem.
