simon h Posted June 24, 2022 Share Posted June 24, 2022 M18x r2. 32gb 1866mhz ram. 2x 512gb ssd raid . 1tb hdd for raid image backup , gtx970. Intel 3740m cpu Sg mode hd4000 integrated handling Windows and the gtx for the odd game like elite dangerous. All running fine I recently noticed a bit of stuttering in Windows on a few videos and graphics etc. And had a look at hd4000 performance . I altered in bios the integrated allocated memory and raised it to 512mb, and raised the reserved value to 1024mb saved and exit. Laptop restarted and powered back on......then just powered off. No matter what I do I can't get it back to post or bios now. Power drain and cmos reset and function power on Is not working . Took all ram out and restarted and got the bleeps ... Motherboard working there that's ok. Put ram back no bleeps no post Took the cpu out and restart and got the expected 7 bleeps ok. Cpu back in and no bleeps no post Bought a brand new unused 3820m cpu . Opened up and looks a1 mint condition was happy. Reset bios again to make sure, powered on no cpu 7 bleeps. Expected Installed new cpu powers on and switches off no post like before no change. Can anyone figure out what happened here for my sanity ?
