    LOL well I rely on logic more than aesthetics and logic would never tell u to mess around when there's fast moving parts and I have had no issues at all nor has anyone else who has ever borrowed the laptop. It runs cool and stable and really fast and since I'm not a weirdo who stares at fans u never think about it I mean it's under the laptop dude...

    Are you telling me 40fps isn't playable? wow I think u may not know that console gaming systems don't run 60fps continuously then even droop to 25fps at times so ur saying a playstation 3 and xbox 360 aren't playable? That makes no sense unless ur strung out on soda and caffeine and ur brain can only operate at 120 to 240fps... LMAO

    By the way it supports usb flash drive recovery and the limitation is in the fat file system can't work with drives above a certain size and all I have is a 4gb. Anything 2gb and below works like a charm.

    Logic is telling me to stop wasting your time, and building a real computer that will ultimately benefit in the end with a lot more performance then modding the shit out of a ghetto laptop.

    this is all getting dragged off topic :/


    human eye can see 400FPS+
    most of us PC gamers do in fact find <60 FPS to be unacceptable, that's why we're PC gamers in the first place.

    you say that logic will keep the laptop safe: we're saying that you're only a small part of the world. it only takes one random thing to roll under the laptop, or get blown there by an external source and you're in a lot of trouble. try and replace the fan grille you removed with something of your own choosing that wont impact temps as much.


    you still havent show the screenshots we've asked for, proving that your software/BIOS modding actually worked.

    40fps is probably his max FPS. is average is probably about 20-25.

    You guys are all negative nancys, though I expect as much from OneMoar :shadedshu and I am disappointed in your reaction as supposed computer geeks. And I thought we had a better sense of community around here.

    You should be applauding this kid for his ingenuity and success in achieving what he set out to do. At the very least follow the rule that you were supposed to learn in kindergarten and if you don't have something nice (or constructive) to say don't say anything at all (OneMoars dumbass sig statement notwithstanding).

    Nice work chris. It's running better now; that's good enough for me. You are smart and have a future in the industry.

    That's with the TL-60 2.0Ghz chip and only 2GB of DDR2-667. Since then I upgraded to the TL-68 2.4Ghz chip and picked up 4GB of DDR2-800. By the way I have numerous systems but I like improving upon things that can be improved upon. I have a SLI GTX 470 Core i7 setup with 5 hard drives in raid0 and all that jazz yeah it screams but I like working on things that need improvement. Some people think it's pointless why is it pointless when there's gains to be made?

    That video is when it was running a lot slower than it is now and now it runs a lot faster obviously. The science behind the 7150m is it uses system memory as video memory. As we know video memory needs to be as fast as possible. Therefore I overclocked the TL-68 2.4Ghz chip to 2.6Ghz and that resulted in a nice Memory bandwidth boost from DDR2-800 to DDR2-867. What do u think the result would be? Better fps of course.

    thanks Wrigleyvillain *MY MAN* *POUND IT* brotha :)

    ...Gets popcorn...

    Seriously though, I applaud you. It may not be really worth it but it is a lot of fun. I have played with old hardware myself just for fun. I pulled an old soundcard out of a p3 machine and spent a few hours trying to get it to work with windows 7 64bit. I got it to work, and yes the sound card sucked compared to my onboard audio.

    Yeah I have a few engineers at Nvidia Working on it as we speak and they said it is in fact possible they're just getting a schematic to see what the potential is and all that since the VRM will only pop when it exceeds it's temp threshold so with my cooling mods that won't be an issue.

    @james888

    Right on man yeah i know what ur saying what was it a sound blaster? Takes forever to get those older cards to work in windows x64 custom modded drivers etc required and a lot of testing. lol

    I would never talk if I didn't back it up with numbers and logic. Emotions have no role on me I rely on logic and I spit out numbers that are logically correct. I just want someone to not get upset like you OneMoar and just give some insight on the logical side of things and not what your emotions are telling you to do.

    LOL in time I will have this thing volt modded by early next week since I have a few engineers I got a hold of on another forums for engineers who are into this type of stuff.

    It was a creative soundblaster ct4780. It had limited functionality. It didn't work at first. Then playing around with the control panel, I turned on surround, and I jumped 10 feet because it made noise and was on all the way. It did sound different. I would say my onboard Realtech ac892 is better. Low sounds sounded better on that card, but it didn't have the full range that my onboard audio does for sure.

    Well first I emailed info@nvidia.com and got a response from an nvidia engineer who is working on it as we speak in his spare time. As we know nvidia engineers are busy people. I did go to school for computer science, network administration, electrical engineering, and mechanical engineering. I just don't have the MCP67M-A2 engineering schematics that only nvidia has. On the other hand I met a guy on the engineering forums who is an engineer as well and has some friends at Nvidia who would be happy to spare their time and help us out.

    As for the sound blaster that's interesting man yeah I bet the specs of the newer generation smaller nanometer process of the onboard will exceed that of older sound blaster sound card. However something old like a Sound Blaster Live! 5.1 exceeds even the latest onboard sound cards and it's really old. I have a Sound Blaster Audigy 2 as well I bought for SPDIF output and it's quite an amazing sound card and with a bunch of testing and trial and error I got it working in Windows 7 X64.

    In regards to the nvidia engineer is over email and private messaging so that's our business. When my drive to succeed is high and with competence and perseverance anything is possible.

    Now i know youre a bullshitter. I'm in school right now for a BSc in Electrical Engineering. it's a 5 year degree, 4 if you do summer school. It would be close to 20 years of just school if you went to school for everything you said you did.

    You seem like some 12 year old whos just saying engineering because he wants to sound cool. No engineer is going to spend time helping some random jackass on a forum mod his shitty ass laptop

    Go ahead. keep lying.

    I am an audiophile and love the ASUS Xonar sounds cards but yeah off topic no worries lol I'm more focused on gpu computing than audio at the moment bro lol but I do love audio :)

    If you go to Vaterott u can get a lot done in short amount of time and yes it's a god damn nightmare no doubt.

    Hey OneMoar u realize your the troll here don't you? With the intent to provoke an emotional repsonse... Your the only one who's letting ur emotions get in the way of your logic. Let your logic do all the talking and life will go by much smoother for ya brotha. That's not in regards to women since u gotta dial in the emotions for women haha so I suppose ur solid with Women and I applaud you for that. But on the nerdy forums lets try and stick to our logic please kind sir.

    @MxPhenom 216

    ur hilarious rolling hard with a Pioneer VSX receiver, high end home audio speakers, 2 15" subwoofers, nothing but raw pcm or dts for me :)
