    I have a system with a TPM 2.0 module running Windows 7. For some reason my TPM Module will not function. What is the problem?

    In order for TPM 2.0 to function in Windows 7, your system must be in UEFI mode when you install Windows 7. If it is not, TPM 2.0 cannot function. Once you have put your system in UEFI mode and have installed Windows 7 please look at the following attachment to see how to activate your TPM 2.0 module.

    Will my new notebook with a 10 series video card function in Linux?
    Oct 20, 2016

    Not at this time. Currently there are no Linux video drives for the new NVidia 10 Series cards (GTX 1060, GTX 1070 and GTX 1080). This is just a temporary problem as drivers will eventually come.

    I want to install Linux Mint in my Eurocom Sky X9C/X7C or X4C. Are their any known issues?
    Jan 29, 2018

    I want to install Linux Mint. Are their any known issues?

    Yes...If you load Linux Mint the IRST (Intel Rapid Storage Technology) will not run correctly. This will mean you cannot setup any type of RAID setup with your Hard Drives. If you are not interested in running any type of RAID array, this issue will not effect you.

    I'm getting Windows 10 Activation errors saying the licence has been used too many times
    Oct 11, 2016

    I’m getting a Windows 10 activation error saying that the license key has been used too many times. Any suggestions?

    1. On the bottom of your system there will be a small colourful rectangular sticker that says “Windows 10 Pro for OEM software” I would suggest taking a picture of it with your phone or digital camera.
    2. After you have a picture of it, from the standard windows desktop, Right click on the start button, now referred to as the flag, and select system.
    3. On the left hand side you will see “activate windows”
    4. Click on it and then select “change product key”
    5. Type in the product key that you just took a picture of (be careful 8’s and B’s look very similar)
    6. Then press next and you should activate without issue.

    How do I reset the CMOS Battery on my P870DM3
    Jan 25, 2017

    A technician while providing support may ask you to reset your CMOS Battery. Occasionally the CMOS Battery is not holding configuration settings or the settings generally maintained using power from the CMOS Battery are corrupted.

    Fortunately resetting your CMOS Battery is very easy and no longer requires disassembling your notebook.

    1) Hold down FN+D, and press the power button on
    3) Continue to hold the FN+D buttons for 20 seconds
    4) A blue box with information in it will appear on your screen, press enter and the system will reboot.
    5) Press F2 and go to bios, set the date and time.
    6) Then press F3 to load defaults, save and exit bios.

    Your CMOS setting have now been re-set.

    Any problems or questions about this process please speak to a Eurocom Technician
