    120Hz models! NV v361.75 previously installed, set refresh rate to 60Hz before uninstalling drivers. DDU uninstall "Clean and restart",  Options: uncheck "Remove present and non-present monitors"

    I removed my previous intel drivers in safe mode using ddu. I was running peg with no Intel driver installed at all. After reboot windows comes to black screen and the restore point didn't save with previous working drivers. I am trying to see what's possible as I somehow need to install the drivers in safe mode but without signature verification and I'm not sure if that's possible. I'm guessing maybe installing Intel driver in safe mode may let me boot to start over again though I wanted to avoid that. Windows is also set to neverase update video drivers in Windows 10 as per DDU. Any ideas other than what I stated above?

      Hello recently I have attempted to boot my PC from USB device during this time I have gone to F12 boot options and attempted to do this at one stage I have selected a option to boot from legacy then the system rebooted.
      But now it seems I am stuck it keeps showing a new boot bios page when the system boots from premamod and then goes black screen and beeps 8 times over and over. I have attempted a bios reset I have removed the watch battery and main battery and held down power for 60secs but I still cannot get back to my normal bios in any way.
      Please, how can I get rid of this and go back to normal boot?
      Here's a pic of the boot screen.

      Hi,
      i was preparing for a gpu replacement, so i decided to flash my alienware m17xr3 A12 bios into an unlocked version.
      I removed the gpu, put "PAR00X64.fd" in the root of a FAT32 usb.
      i unplugged the power cord, inseted the usb drive in the esata port, and held the end button before replugging the cord.
      the fans kicked in, and i heard 30 beeps, then it restarted.
      after that, it wouldn't stop resatarting. it kept rebooting even when i held the end key for more than 20 mins.
      i'm really confused right now as of what to do to fix this issue.
      i would really apreciate any help you have to offer me.

      Hi guys! I just recently got a used m15x (with a  gt240m gpu...) and have swapped it out for a gtx880m (msi) which is not working currently. I have updated the bios to a09, and then installed the unlocked a09 bios to unlock all options to make sure something there wasn't to blame.
       
      The laptop boots and gets to windows just fine if you're plugged into a monitor via VGA, but windows does not recognize the gpu or let you install drivers for the card. Additionally, if a monitor is not plugged in the laptop screen goes white and emits one very loud beep every few minutes. Aside from this, the laptop behaves as expected. I'm having trouble finding any support online regarding this issue and was hoping that somebody here could give me a bit of a pointer on where I should look to next.
       
      as a side note, forgot to add that I originally purchased the card after finding a list of people showing off benchmark scores for different cards in the m15x, one of which was the 880m, which could be purchased cheaply online. I'm currently looking into how to flash vBIOS as it was mentioned in one of the few posts I could find on the subject, but am waiting to hear if this is the right course of action. thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide!
