Clevo 170SM-A with GTX 970M 6GB

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I bought a Clevo 170SM-A with a GTX 970M 6GB GPU at http://www.clevocenter.com last year. For some unknown reason (at least to me...) I'm just not able to update Nvidia drivers since version 359.06 (BSOD or other times "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)".

This is the current status of my GPU:

Do I need to upgrade the BIOS and/or vBIOS? Which files do I need to use for this upgrade?

 

I hope you can help me to solve this issue.

Ups... guess I can't download the file yet...

Thanks for the help @Spellbound.

 

By the way, I saw in your signature that you also have a GTX970M card. Did you had the same problem?

I did not have the same problem because by the time I got around to flashing my vBIOS Prema had already released v2 which fixed the issue with the newer drivers conflicting.

 

Though many others experienced the same issue you are experiencing and had to flash the newer vBIOS. I'm sure if you do some digging on the forums you can surely find threads about it. :)

So I tried to flash the vBIOS but was not successful.

 

What am I doing wrong?

As the 'readme' suggests please run GPU-Z in the background in order to activate the NVIDIA GPU and be able to flash it. ;)

I thought that GPU-Z was only to get the info from the GPU but guess I didn't fully understand the instructions... noobie...

 

One more question, is there a away to backup to current vBIOS?

 

Thanks for the help @Prema and @Spellbound

GPU-Z forces the card to become active.

 

To save the current vBIOS click the button just to the right of the vBIOS version in GPU-Z.

 

You're most welcome.

      Dear modders,
       
      Hope you all are doing well. I wished to ask if someone could guide me for flashing a vbios to the GTX 970M 6GB for to be installed on the MSI GT-683 laptop (with modded GTX 560M heatsink). I need to know how to get a display to be able to flash (also, flash with what software?) if the gtx 970m is of clevo (is the IGPU supposed to work? do i need an unlocked laptop bios?) I intend to buy this GTX 970M : https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000264805962.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.0.0.62d77e93DGQl5O&algo_pvid=bccc80d9-9944-4dc3-a1e6-ef3d45bda0e3&algo_expid=bccc80d9-9944-4dc3-a1e6-ef3d45bda0e3-5&btsid=12b502b9-dbe1-4c35-be48-930446a31235&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_3,searchweb201603_53

      Troubleshooting Modified driver Installation. If you are able to successfully modify the .inf to install GPU driver but games still using dedicated graphics or crashing, this is how I got it to work. Also link to the instructions I used to modify the .inf (Credit to Yuki Rea Founder and Creator of null-src.com) That tutorial can be found here https://null-src.com/posts/nvidia-notebook-driver-inf-mod/post.php
