hi im new here i have introduced myself, however i am having some problems with my gateway p-6860 fx.1.I have a question my p-6860fx is idling at 45-59 celsius im running windows 7 x64 ultimate, hard drive disc WD scorpio black 7200 rpm checks smart test ok, memory passes, motherboard passes, it shows no errors, on anything, it did get to 80 celsius before i cleaned and applied icd7 on it last night,with usual antivirus avast, malwarebytes and regular idle processes, it was a little dirty i have it propped up so fans get plenty of air i dont hear them go faster or work harder when it gets hot like on my other gateways, i cleaned it even cleaned fans with q-tip one blade at a time, fans are working and applied i icd7, now max temp running everything wide open 15 minutes is 60 celsius tops
2, is there a cooler bios i can run? will the 78 series bios work on the 6860 fx without bricking it, i ran bemchmark test 100% for 15 minutes 100% load at 57 celsius ok for it?
3. also on the bios it has factory bios on it, i have never set password for bios now it has one. noone else uses my laptops, does anyone know of removal for this its phoenix bios trusted core i beleive. ive tried these remedys so far with no luck, all bios master key wouldnt work ,backdoor passwords, used dogberts checksum calculator for master password, and the russian one where you get bad code 3 times and input number and it gives you master password, still gives same error code after 3 tries 05324 and sais system disabled, i dont know who to contact as gateway support is NO help, i am original owner with receipt.
4 , is there a way to reset bios i have flashed bios still same error code, or recover it with no password, any help would be greatly appreciated and im new if i posted in wrong section please let me know and ill try to move to right place, i try to follow all rules, any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated thanks, turbo
