[REQUEST] Compal QAL51
#1
I would like to unlock fan control in my bios, because the laptop is running rather hot and speedfan can't access it. If at all possible I would like to also see if it is possible to get nvidia optimus running since compal says it supports it but have never managed to get it running, but this would really be a bonus.

Bios I have is found here: ftp://70.35.58.70/Notebook/Compal/QAL30_...8/Windows/

Screenshot:
   

Thank you for your time

Hi mate,

Thanks for the quick response.
Here are the screens you requested:
   
   
   
   

My biggest problem is that gpu hits 90+ C and cpu reaches 100+ C and the fan speed doesn't seem to change from idle speeds (still rather inaudible)

If it is easier for you you can unlock all of the menu's and i'll try and figure it out myself.

Update:
I wanted to prepare myself for when i flash it and something goes wrong to see if bios recovery works. Well i got it to the black screen and full speed fans (which i normally never hear) and the usb stick was flickering but 15 minutes in nothing changed. I named the file QAL50.bin as suggested by the phoenix tool, which told me QAL50.bi? so i assumed it meant bin. Also windows+B from the general directions did not work for me I had to use fn+B. So don't know what went wrong but would like to confirm that recovery works properly before i would flash anything new.

Hello, I have the same notebook here and when BDMaster release the bios I will try it also.

I tried to unlock it here but I can´t understand all the process, so I go until the dissasembling the bios in a hundred of parts, And I could change the logo of the bios but nothing more, and if BDMaster can unlock the options for changing the Active Graphics card. I will be thankful !!

And BDMaster, do you know a way to reset the UEFI variables because I changed some of them and now when I press F2 I need to wait about 2 minutes to see the bios options.

If I am not asking too much you can teach me some tips for changing this bios (the same of the Flaggie)

Just for explain I flashed the bios about 4 times to see if it resets the variables but it not worked.

To change the BIOS variables I used the method of this topic: http://www.bios-mods.com/forum/Thread-RE...-EFI-shell

I noticed that some modifications I made in setup_var are showing me the title: DPTF Configuration in the advanced tab witch is not normaly seen check the 4th figure above. I think that this is making my setup slow when I press F2.
