Welcome to the Intel® Embedded Community.
I have long subscribed to the principle that no question is a stupid question, so no worries there!
As our name suggests, theis community is focused on embedded applications and it seems you are trying to solve a problem with your notebook, a consumer product. We'll see if someone out there might know the answer to your question but you might not be in quite the right place. Have you tried contacting the support folks at your notebook manufacturer?
