    Hello everyone!

    So, I still use my w230ss everyday! <3 the screen went black a year ago though, the LCD backlight stopped working! :'(
    Now I'm using it with an external monitor.
    I was doing a little maintenance on it, changing the paste to get better thermal results and I decided to play a little bit with the CPU, trying to undervolt. But I'm getting this screen on the BIOS:

    Does any one knows why I'm getting this? I was thinking in flashing again the PREMA BIOS, but I wasn't able to find an download link to the PREMA MOD, seems like his website is down :(
    If anyone know how to solve this or where I can find the PREMA BIOS I would be very happy!

    ((https://premamod.com/)

    Thanks :)
    sry for any english mistakes, not my first language...

    Flash back? What about the backup taken before flashing?

    Right... But I don't have a backup D:

    I flashed the prema mod a long time ago, without researching too much about it :/
    I definitely should have made a backup... but I didn't.

    I remember that I flashed trying to improve battery life, and I successfully undervolt it at the time, but I don't know what happened in order to get that library error.

    The Prema BIOS files are no longer publicly available.

    My machine is still going, I used it as a main pc while i was sick.
    i7 4700
    860M ( It was a ST that the reseller swapped motherboard to the SS model hence the older cpu)
    12GB RAM
    512GB Samsung 850EVO
    256GB Crucial Msata
    128GB OCZ Nocti Msata

    Unfortunately my laptop CPU keeps hitting 92-93 while just browsing the web - I've repasted it recently and still no dice

    also the battery now does not charge I bought a new chinabrand battery and a new Delta psu both didn't help.

    I wonder if that sort of issue is repairable?
