Hi everyone  :laugh:

Im glad to see this thread hope someone can help me i have a msi gt683r with a gtx 670m.
I have this problems:


- The USB of the right side, next to the audio jacks doesnt work.
- The FN-Buttons do not function properly in screen dimming.
- Problems with fan regulation (e.g. fan always running @100% with light of the fan off, when i press the fan button light goes on fan goes maybe to 80%), the system OS doesnt controll fan speed.
- Low brightness, i mean it seems it only gives me 50% of what i should had, and sometimes the light flickers. (Dont know if it is because of my 150w psu since i upgrade it to gtx 670m).

Gt687R ?
Bios version: EF16F2IMS.30Z 04/06/2012
ECVERSION:16F2EMS1 VER4.24 12/06/2011

So is this problems related to my EC Firmware i already tried to do what is mention on this thread didnt work and i also reset the bios dindt work to.

Does anyone knows how to solve this problems?
Thank you

Good day.  I have a Ghost Pro and my battery is not (apparently?) removable.  I cannot get into the BIOS.  I did when I first received the machine and despite doing nothing substantial besides changing a boot order around I can no longer access it.   I have contacted support twice to tell them this and they still tell me to "remove the battery".  I'll save my complaint for another time.

Anyway.  I saw the note about the pinhole reset, I tried to do this but this still hasn't enabled me to access the BIOS.  Is there an order of operations I need to follow?

Thanks

I have the GE72 6QD Apache Pro. I am trying to confirm the location of the EC reset. On the  underside of the laptop there is a small hole towards the front that looks like it has a box with either arrows or a circle around it is this the EC hole? I tried to use a CD removal pin but, it was too big which is why I am unsure now. Also, you said to hold the EC reset for 5 minutes, or press the reset and wait 5 minutes?

You must remove the battery from the circuit so you need to hold it down for 5 minutes.

Rip your finger.

Thank you, so just to be clear, my battery is not removable but, holding the EC reset for 5 minutes isolates the MB from the battery, correct?

I want to update ME for processor vulnerability . then I need to update bios. after updating BIOS it sill telling me ME updating is disable. I think it can be due to not resetting EC correctly. you told we need 5 minutes but MSI told you need at least 7 sec! my laptop PE60 6QE, have internal battery pack, and I don't know what is EC resetting hole. Please Help!

Hi Guys,
            Like an idiot I performed an EC reset on my GT72s 6QE while it was running and now predictably it's dead. Any resurrection ideas?
