    Was going through my bios today to adjust my XM OC settings and I just noticed there is a DMC option which is set to enabled.

    It has no explanation of what it is aside from "Allows you to enable or disable the internal DMC device"

    so uh...any body know what the hell it is?

    Thanks for the link. Just read up on it and im baffled as to why something like that comes preloaded in our AWs. Pretty much useless for personal gaming laptops

    i know for one thing that if you have WiHD and if you disable it in the bios, WiHD won't work.

    DMC stands for Digital Media Controller which in this case is the WiHD Card
    A little more graphic: DMC Card
    Pretty much is the slot on the system not the card itself.
    Hope it helps :)
