Hi all just stumbled on this placewhile looking for a bios for a laptop that has been sitting on a shelf for ages.

It's a CLEVO 668 multimedia notebook thing, and it's driving me up the wall.

The bios is made by SystemSoft. Insyde bought all there bios IPs and so they are supposed to carry on with producing updates but i just can't find any updates from them.

I have no idea as to what program to use because all the info at the CLEVO website about the bios has gone. http://www.clevo.com.tw/download/ftpOut ... ubmit=+GO+

Maybe Insyde and Clevo had words.

I've updated ATI graphcards and a few motherboards and never messed up but i'm becoming desperate when it comes to this.

The 668 is not recognising any hdd properly.

know matter what the size of the drive is from 2gig to 40gig and even if I create the 0vmakfil suspend to disk space and format it on my pc using 2.5 to 3.5 ide adaptor then put the hard drive in the laptop it still will not recognise the suspend to disk file/partition or the formated partitions. I have tried the overlay utilities but still no joy from the laptop.

I've found a systemsoft bios utilitiy called sysodeco. Do you know how to use it. I'll give it a go. Going to try and make a backup of the bios then scan it, see if it's been infected. Clean it then put it flash it back.

If anyone has experience of Systemsoft/Insyde bioses then I would gladly like to hear from you about there bioses.

Has anyone got a link to a site with actual systemsoft/Insyde bios files.

I hate this bios :)
