    Brian

    For the month of June 2016 anyone who likes the Eurocom Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/EurocomTechnology/) is eligible for $100 off an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M upgrade kit for any supporting laptop.

     

    If you already LIKE Eurocom on Facebook you are already eligible for $100 off an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M upgrade kit as well.

     

    Eurocom provides everything for an easy upgrade including the X-bracket, screws, thermal pads, and thermal paste and can provide heatsinks that may be needed to handle the 980M card. 

     

    Having an upgradeable laptop is essential if the user wants to extend the lifespan of the system through repairs or performance increases. 

     

    “Breathe the life back into your laptop with the performance of an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M upgrade kit” Mark Bialic, Eurocom President.

     

    Eurocom is offering upgrade solutions for phased out laptop models to allow consumers and companies alike to extend the life span of their systems while benefiting from enhanced performance and usage of new software that requires new graphics.

     

    Eurocom and several other laptop developers integrate MXM 3.0b technology into their high performance notebooks and gaming laptops because it allows those systems to support the most powerful graphics technology on the market while allowing for possible upgrade options.

    It was a permissions issue, thanks for bringing it up as we weren't aware of it! It's fixed now and you should be able to comment on articles on the front page.

    Hi. Quick question if you don't mind. I'd like to buy one these kits to upgrade my m18x R2 (660m). Is everything I need included or will it require a different heat sink and fan?

    You will need heat sinks for sure... 660M heat sinks will not support 980M correctly. If you plan on going with SLI, you will need whatever parts your system is missing if you are not already running 660M in SLI (i.e. secondary GPU fan, heat sink and SLI bridge). Tell Eurocom what you need and they will most likely be able to set you up. They are strong supporters of people having the ability to upgrade what they have and chances are good that they have the parts you need. They used to offer generous trade-ins on Alienware laptops, so that may be something to ask them about. A traded-in antique Alienware like  the M18xR1/R2 is nice donor machine for keeping up their stock of upgrade parts.

     

    You will also need the BIOS mod from @Swick1981 available here at Tech|Inferno. Without his awesome BIOS mod, Maxwell sucks on the M18xR2.

    Hi people ..... I think that the folks over Eurocom have made a mistake ..... this upgrade kit is listed to be available even for the DELL M6500, and, myself having one, I can guarantee, that the standard 980m in mxm format can't be put in this DELL. It has a special connector, top-down, and not an mxm 45degree insert angle   

    .... Could you, any of the mods, bring to their attention this little "typo" ?

     

     Have all a great week!

      Hello
       
      My M18XR2 was working on Windows 10 with a 880M.
      Last week, I reinstalled my system, and I couldn't get nvidia driver working...
      I took the last installed modified driver, and even downloaded latest version, modified it again, nothing to do, I have same error : nvidia installation failed. 
      I only install the graphic driver too, it fail. The screen goes black, then light again, and it fail...
      Do someone have an idea how to fix this probleme ? 
      Thank you

      Hello!
       
      I have joined the forums some time ago to learn about modding drivers for laptops and thanks to the community here I was able to upgrade my Dell M6700 with a GTX880m. This time I am stuck on a couple of GPU issues that seem to be corresponding to each other. Let me go through these things below.
       
      I have upgraded the M6700 with a GTX970m - OS is working fine, all everyday tasks going great and by replacing the 880m with a newer card I gained some power and lowered the temperature of the system. In order to install drivers for this 970m (the other card too) I had to modify "nvdmi.inf" file and trick the driver installator to think, that my laptop was an Alienware. I have figured that out by trial and error. However, strange issues happen since the new card arrived:
      - first of all, no matter which new driver is getting installed, after OS restart and some time, the screen flashes and comes back on - when going to NVIDIA Control Panel it shows that the driver installed is v.353.54 - it just changes the driver version as if it was stored somewhere in the OS. Of course each time I am performing a clean install with DDU
      - secondly, from time to time when powered on, all I can see is a blurred image of the Windows' welcome screen, as if the resolution was changed to a super-low setting - a reset helps with that
      - finally, the outcome of all this is that I can't run any game on the laptop for longer than 10-15 minutes. I have recently purchased Divinity 2 and it runs on its "ultra" settings, but the laptop just dies after a quarter and powers itself off, followed by a screen flash
       
      Now I know that these might be various things in my system, but I have a feeling that it is GPU related and there might be something wrong with the drivers as previously (on the 880m) I was able to run games for as long as desired. And yes, I have already tried monitoring the temperatures, lowering in-game settings and even underclocking my CPU (i7 3940XM) - the CPU gets a bit hot if you ask me - up to around 90 degrees, but other than that, all seems fine.
       
      Help!

      I'm looking at finally upgrading my m17x from its old 7970m to a 980m, but the person I contacted to buy the card from warned me that the 980m requires a 200W power supply, and win10 (I'm still on 7, but I can upgrade easily enough, so that shouldn't be too much of a problem).
       
      I have read that the 7970m only required 100W, so I have no idea if my laptop would even be able to power the 980m or whether this would just be a waste of several hundred pounds. Can anyone clarify?
       
      Also, I have read on here that installing a new card in an m17x require you to manually update the video drivers, but I'm afraid that I'm not quite sure what that means, exactly - would I need to rely on kindly users on here to keep uploading new modded versions of the video drivers in perpetuity, or is it just that I need to somehow tweak the installation on new drivers in future?
