    A few niggles

    Post by guinnsquirrel on 2017-06-19, 10:01

    Hello,

    I recevied my crowfunded/Indiegogo backed device. I love it! I have one or two questions:

    • Am struggling with power management. I only seem to get 3hrs tops our of this device. Nowhere near the promised 12 hours. What should I do?
    • Can you recommend a good anti-virus application?
    • Is there a way to get into the BIOS? Am curious to know if there is anything I can tweak there(?)
    • How do I reset/re-image the device?




    Thank you all in advance.

    Out of the box, WiFi signal was weak, 5G bands do not show, and could not connect. This is before any Windows updates! Had to connect to Internet using a Ethernet dongle through the USB port. I also ran through all Windows Updates to OS Build 15063.483, so got driver version 1.558.53.15 for Broadcom 802.11ac Wireless PCIE Full Dongle Adapter (might need to separately do "Update driver" under "Network adapters" in Device Manager to get latest driver version), but suspect those steps are not necessary.

    Fix found!

    1. Download https://mega.nz/#!VUZx1AAb!XdDyLUbytthJ832RZfxGFrMCS2RxyWPjLOmJvi4Zf0E (for US Backer on http://www.gpd.hk/news.asp?id=1519&selectclassid=002002 ; but you don't need to know that).

    2. Extract 4356r2nvram.txt using RAR Opener from Microsoft Store.

    3. Copy 4356r2nvram.txt into C:\Windows\System32\drivers (using Ctrl-C then Ctrl-V) by enabling admin permission (just answer "yes" to activate for this copying process).

    4. Reboot.

    Now signal is strong, 5G bands show, connect without issues.

    This procedure doesn't make sense at all, but it works! Learnt different bits from different sources. Wish GPD Support would just clearly state this fix. Better yet, this file should be on the Pocket when delivered!!

    This missing 4356r2nvram.txt is also https://1drv.ms/t/s!Amg9wimDZkLKbmU72-b2gV7zxoE for easy download and copying into C:\Windows\System32\drivers.
