  2. Just got a 980m for m18xr2. 8 beeps.

    I tried to install the modded driver and this happens. The screen lines go away and everything looks perfect for a couple of seconds, then these squares pop up , the computer locks up, and then blue screen, always before the driver installs completely. Sometimes the computer just locks up with squares and no blue screen.
  3. Can't Seem To Update My BIOS

    Can someone confirm a few things for me? I have the P670HP6-G and I'm attempting to use the files here: https://www.techinferno.com/index.php?/files/file/105-p6xxhshp-mod-and-stock/ I used the latest version of Rufus to format my 16GB Kingston 3.0 flash drive to FreeDOS and transfered the files under "BIOS" onto the root of the drive. However, when I boot into FreeDOS and try to execute the command "BACKUPDOS.exe" it says the "bad command or filename". After not being able to run said command, I ran "dir" and found that the "BACKUPDOS.exe" was renamed to "BACKUP~1.exe". I ran the command with the changed filename and eventually got an error along the lines of "BACKUP.ROM 1 - Error: unknown command.". If it has anything to do with it, I did update the majority of my drivers today with the Obsidian tool. Is this the correct BIOS file for my model? And am I supposed to be using a different form of DOS or executing commands in a different way? Thanks! EDIT: I renamed the "BACKUP~1.EXE" to the original "BACKUPDOS.EXE" and tried running the command again, which actually initialized but failed with the BACKUP.ROM unknown command error.

  5. Discrete graphics not detected. 980m

    When you installed the modded bios it might be set to IGFX by default. Try switching to PEG.
  6. Since you mentioned a console I actually tested my own ps3 and ps4 just now but unfortunately those don't work through the HDMI input, a PC however seems to work fine
  7. [GUIDE] Dell 330W Power Adapter Mod for the M17X

    That's excellent news, I was not expecting that. I didn't think the onboard intel gpu would drive a 120hz screen (Isn't the HDMI input a pass-through from that chipset?). Thank you for all of your help and the time you've taken to answer my questions. It's much appreciated.
  8. HDMI input works fine as well.
  9. Just got a 980m for m18xr2. 8 beeps.

    Unfortunately i don't know what the problem in your case, motherboard or your 980M. But you can try to flash Dell's vbios for your 980M, and then check if it solve your problem.
  10. Hard drive plastic clip. Any idea where to get?

    Well, it’s a fix I guess. I cut plastic from an items (a flash drives clear plastic packaging) I bought. Then I wedged it in front of the cable to hold it in place. Hard drive reads again , but I’m not sure how stable or consistent it will be. I’ll probably also put a short piece of electrical tape over it. Right now though I’m busy trying to get my gpu to work right in another m18xr2 forum.
  11. Just got a 980m for m18xr2. 8 beeps.

    Klem... i noticed when i turn off PEG and put it back to the intel graphics the screen looks fine, but when i switch to peg the lines appear and sometimes fluctuate...and the computer normally locks up. So i guess peg mode using the gtx is giving issues. The bios does show that the GTX nvidia is installed when i restart in PEG though. I wonder if it's the card (unlikely since the last card showed the same lines), or the motherboard? Or could their possibly be a loose cable behind the screen? But if that were the case wouldn't the integrated intel 4000 graphics also show lines?
  12. Last week
  13. [GUIDE] Dell 330W Power Adapter Mod for the M17X

    I mean the HDMI input, not the output. I use this laptop every once in a while to hook my ps4 up to when I go to some friends' places. I prefer it over lugging a TV around. Do you know if your HDMI input still works? Can you test it? Thanks again for all of the help
  14. Just got a 980m for m18xr2. 8 beeps.

    Well I did that and I still get the lines in peg mod and then it either locks up or shows me a solid colored screen. The last card in it was a 675m and it started to show lines as well. Do you think the motherboard is bad?
  15. Every port works fine with the gtx1070, HDMI, Mini-displayport and VGA. I personally got 2 screens connected through the HDMI and mini-displayport so you should be good.
  16. [GUIDE] Dell 330W Power Adapter Mod for the M17X

    @naightmehr, thanks for your responses. They really are a lot of help. One last thing, does your HDMI input still work? I figured it would be incompatible with a 120hz screen since I think it ran on the integrated intel gpu.
  17. Recently I remembered about my old account in Outlook 2007 and my interesting correspondence, which contained my photos. But I could not open several letters in the Inbox. My interlocutor has changed the address for a long time and I can not contact him again to spoil his photos. When I try to open a message, I see an error message - close Outlook and all mail-enabled applications, and then use the "Recover folders" tool (Scanpst.exe) to diagnose and fix errors in the file. How can I receive my letters, because I didn't delete them exactly.
  18. Hard drive plastic clip. Any idea where to get?

    Those clips are easy to break. Replaced my motherboard when it it happened to my R2. You might search for a fix but Dell did not make these clips replaceable. But If you do find a fix, be the first to post it. Thanks.
  19. Just got a 980m for m18xr2. 8 beeps.

    Thank you sir. I will do that after work. You’re a big help.
  20. Just got a 980m for m18xr2. 8 beeps.

    Try to disassembly laptop, then clean all gold contacts on MXM graphics card, then reinsert graphics card.
  21. Just got a 980m for m18xr2. 8 beeps.

    If it’s not one thing it’s another klem. Now after a few seconds of seeing lines in Windows the mouse will freeze and a message about the video card comes up and sometimes the screen goes purple. When the computer does start you see these lines as well. Do you think I got a bad card?
  22. Does any one have a problem with iGPU Boost speed? Mine never goes to 1200 under load. Only bounces between 650 and 850. Also has any one managed to overclock the iGPU succesfully? Uefi values or Intel XTU dont seem to work. Config is i5 4300m with iGPU only. 2 x 4GB at 1600mhz, Windows 10.
  23. Just got a 980m for m18xr2. 8 beeps.

    Go in bios setup menu and set graphic from IGFX to PEG.
  24. Just got a 980m for m18xr2. 8 beeps.

    Well no more 8 beeps and the screen comes on and boots into Windows. The only problem now is the Alienware doesn’t detect a discrete graphics card in the bios and simply loads the intel 4000 graphics. Any idea what could be the issue?
  25. Sorry for lighting up the forums lately. Installed slv’s wonderful bios. Everything is now going good except bios says no discrete graphics are detected. Any any help would be wonderful.
  26. Got it figured out. Thanks anyway.
  27. Ok, it sounds as though I'm in over my head. So does the G750JM separate the vBIOS and system BIOS? If not, which set of ROG's allow for more accessible BIOS modding?
