-CPU spec code Q3SE

After reading on the interwebz that the Dell Inspiron 1464/1564/1764 takes quads I got myself a 840QM, surprisingly this does NOT work. Power led comes on but screen and fan stays off. However, when crossflashing with the Studio 1558 BIOS the screen and fan DO come on, but the laptop freezes halfway through the POST (possibly because the Inspiron has a HM55 chipset and the 1558 a PM55 chipset if I recall correctly).

My quest is to get get this working correctly, I see 3 ways to do this.
1. Get 1x64 bios below version A10, A10-A13 which are available from Dell do not work. < A10 nowhere to be found.
2. Mod the 1x64 bios to accept quads.
3. Mod the 1558 bios to accept the HM55 chipset.
4. Hybrid 1564/1558/1458 BIOS

Sadly I can't seem to do any of those and that's why I'm here, any help would be greatly appreciated. (I can attach WPH files for 1564 and 1558 when requested)

I can donate paypal moneys to whoever gets this working!
