    Just had someone with a 15W v8 successfully patch.

    So you think it's worth it?

    It depends what your goals are. I really wanted an undervolt from the bios, plus it's cool to see what else there is to do. If you're not into bios modding or taking the risk of bricking your system, it's probably not worth it...

    A quick update, I've had to unplug the CMOS battery to reset the bios after it didn't like my attempt to OC the ram. Just an FYI in case you are messing around and your Aero15 no longer boots...

    Yeah I also suggest using software to test CPU undervolting to check system stability before doing it in the BIOS.

    If you're going to be a little more experimental with settings it may be worth getting an EEPROM programmer so you can easily make a backup to restore the BIOS if necessary.

    Incidentally how hard is it to access the CMOS battery in the Aero 15?

    Good call on testing the undervolt via throttle stop or something first, I just copied my stable settings from TS to the bios.

    I do have an EEPROM programmer, otherwise I probably wouldn't have messed with editing the bios, lol.

    Accessing the CMOS battery is super easy. Just take the back cover off, unplug the system battery, and then right near that area is another plug with two wires (red and black I think) and that's the CMOS battery.

    There is no jumper for disconnecting the battery / clearing the CMOS I guess.^^

    Sadly not that I know of, nor key-combination. It would be nice to know though.

    I have encountered a problem with my keyboard lighting and I have hope to fix it by resetting my machine.
    However that resulted to another problem. My battery capacity is now down to 3.5 hours while it was 6.5 hours previously. I don't know what setting I have set that makes this like this. I have tried to update the bios using
    the smart update app but the issue is still there. I also tried to uninstall smart manager, smart update and even
    the RGB fusion app but my battery capacity is still 3.5 hours. I have tried the solution suggested here in this forum but I still does not work. I hope some can help me.


    Sorry for re-posting this here. But I have no one is answering me in the other threads. I have done every solution that were suggested in this forum but the problem still persist. My keyboard problem still persist but now the issue with the battery causes more problem to me.

    I hope I you can help me.

    what was the problem with your ram? Are you trying to run a sodimm at 3000mhz?
    I managed to similarly unlock my bios (Aero15 OLED XA) but I have yet to buy an upgraded stick of ram yet, was it just plain not letting you do it?
