Hi! When i run ailenautopsy test, all device are ok, except DVD drive. All tests about DVD have iussues: DRAM,ROM,etc.. Alienautopsy advise me to update the firmware, but i don't know how to update the firmware of DVD drive. I tried with device manager, but it told me that firmware is up to date.
The DVD drive is the MATSHITA

I'm not entirely sure but maybe reinstalling your chipset could help.

If it's working fine I would suggest to leave it be then.

Yeah if it's working leave it alone. AlienAutopsy says that there are some damaged sectors on my hard drive, but after running various tests with other programs, I came to the conclusion that's faulty information.

For bios, check your bios version, the latest is A09 for m14x. Anyway, in my little experience, sometimes alienautopsy doesn't work properly.
