    Nope, apparently the flag that enables the floppy recovery key combo isn't set so it won't even try looking at the usb floppy I have. I forget exactly where it is but I've seen it in Phoenix BIOS Editor.

    Have you tried using Ubuntu Linux? I had better luck with the fans on that when I was taking my Linux classes a couple semesters ago. Oh speaking of Linux, have you taken a look at fixing the bluetooh so it works without having to boot Windows first or enabling that omnibook module? (it's been a while since I've messed with Linux so I'm not even sure if that's still the case) As I recall the sound card had issues when you suspend/resume too.

    I don't like Debian-based distributions. I'm a Red Hat guy (RHEL/CentOS and Fedora).

    I'll try a direct boot to the Fedora 14 Live CD and see if I have any problems with bluetooth or sound card.

    UPDATE:
    - I don't have bluetooth on my P105-6114, so I can't test that out.
    - I was able to reproduce the sound card problem...it might be an ACPI DSDT issue...I'll see if I can figure that out...it's easy enough to test.

    @tqhoang I know it's been a long while since you've been active in this topic. I just revived an old Toshiba Satellite P100 with a 2.33 GHz Core-2-Duo and it's a good secondary Laptop. I would like to apply the DSDT Test8 BIOS you made, but the link has died in the meantime.

    If you (or someone else, maybe @aroenai @varkanoid ) still have that file available, could you upload it again?

    Thank you tqhoang!

    OK, I understand.
    I once had a Lenovo G500s (i5 3230, GeForce graphics) which was shipped with a legacy BIOS. Someone created a perfect UEFI BIOS for it. I sold it so I deleted any records at some point.

    Let me know if my DSDT Test8 BIOS worked for the bluetooth issue.

    FWIW, I don't have the laptop in my possession right now, but I can probably get my hands on it soon. I'm curious if the sound card ever got fixed by current Linux distros.
