FSC Amilo 1556 + HD 4570 512 MB

Recommended Posts

Guest darko

Hi there,

i have an Amilo 1556 with nVidia 7600go card, which is gone dead fourth time in last 2 years. Today I bought an Ati HD 4570 (from mxm-upgrades)! i installed card but i get only a black screen! Bios is Phoenix Bios Version 1.27 (originaly shiped with laptop)?? on some forums a read that i have to flash BIOS with some other Alienwere Bios. Is it true?? is it safe ?? What exactly should i do ?? thanks in advance!!! Notice that i can run Windows only in safe mode now, so Bios as .iso would be nice :))

If this one doesn't work, I don't know which other could.

Give it a try, it has shown the most compatibility in the past:

This Bios is from the 17" model, but it also works on your machine, as the platform

is basically the same: http://rapidshare.com/files/400316338/m5750_m5790_Bios1.19W.zip.html

Hope it works for you, too.

hi there,

i just wanted to confirm that FSC Amilo 1556 + ati hd4570 + Alienwere BIOS 1.19w works very smooth, with gpu temperatures 55 - 60 Degrees (with nVidia 7600 go - ~ 90). There was no problems whatsoever during replacement of graphic card.

Thanks for help you are providing here!! Without info on this forum i would probably have to acquire new laptop :)

mfG, Darko
