    Anyone? I think dell might have put a stop on bios mods :(

    This is what i see in slic_toolkit 3.2
    Table NameOEMID&TableIDAddress LenthDescription Table (ACPI 1.0)

    RSD PTR DELL 000FDF00 20Root System Desc.Pointer
    |
    |- RSDTDELL QA09 17FF0000 44Root System Desc.Table
    |
    00 |- FACP DELL CPi R 17FF0400 116
    01 |- BOOT DELL CPi R 17FF07C0 40

    --- Scan Finished ---

    I changed it to dynmic and it says no slic are you sure so i tried this still doesnt show up a valid slic. When using the tool i tried the default but I got error on 1st post. tried dynamic and it said success after the error but no luck./..

    This laptop is so old that Andy's PhoenixTool doesn't have an existing MCFG table to replace. You'll have to ask Andy for a suggestion to see if there is space to inject the SLIC table entry.
