Hello all! New to here! So I recently purchased a used, but in great condition D630. I wanted to get the most out of it so I did all possible upgrades including the mobo with the nVIDIA chip. I know what you are all thinking..... I did the copper shim mod and what not, as well as using a cooling pad. This thing is 9 years old and still equal, if not better than my 4 year old Acer Aspire. So my issue is I cant seem to upgrade past the A11 bios.
This is a D630C so it has the ATM option in the bios. I can run 8 gigs of memory with windows 7, but not the 64 bit Linux Mint or Fedora. Plus the latest bios I can get is A11 for the this, but the latest for the regular D630 is up to A19. Any advice or help is greatly appreciated! 🙂
