I have got a Gericom Hydrospeed (same as fic chino / fic nb2000)
Some time ago i upgraded it with a AMD K6-2+ 500.
To recognize the cpu i had to update the bios (phoenix). I found it at ftp://ftp.gericom.com (it´s the nb2000dmi.zip file)
After the update the laptop recognized the cpu correctly (the string is : 2k0322-5410-1.0n-1)
But the bios has two serious bugs:
First of all the cpu-fan stops spinning when win2k/winxp is booted and it won`t start again ... with win9x an winme everything is ok.
And the second bug : The infrared port doesn`t work with this bios.
My question : Is there somewhere a newer bios or does someone have this laptop and knows how to solve this problems ?
P.S. I also have tried the fic chino bios, but this is an old bios !
Gericom doesn`t know how to help either ....
