Clevo P150EM + GTX 970M FPS Issue

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I've my GTX 970M working for a good while, but I decided to re-apply the thermal paste today because my card seemed to get a bit hot and my gaming would suffer from fps drops. I figured re-applying the thermal paste would work, but it didn't. I then uninstalled the drivers and tried reinstalling different drivers to see if they'd perform better, but for some reason my FPS is constantly below 60 FPS no matter what game it is. I've tried checking my settings in nVidia control panel, I tried flashing the vBios, I've changed countless settings to try and make it work but nothing is working. I also noticed that when I use Speed Fan, the GPU section doesn't consistently show my GPU temps. It stays at 0 Celsius for the most part, but then randomly reads 47 Celsius.

 

Any ideas of what could be wrong or how to possibly fix this?

You have an integrated graphics card right? Maybe it is interfering. I would do the following:

 

1) Re-seat the graphics card carefully and repaste it again.

2) Make sure the fans are plugged in properly and spin when you power on the notebook.

3) Uninstall and re-install both the intel display driver and nvidia driver, in that order.

4) Fire up any game with MSI Afterburner and set it to show your clocks as well as temperature ingame on the On Screen Display. Check whether full 3D clocks are running consistently in games.

5) Make sure you don't have any form of VSYNC running, either ingame, in the nvidia control panel or nvidia inspector if you have it installed.

 

Check whether the temperature is consistently read, the fan is spinning and 3D clocks are running as well as having no VSYNC enabled.

Hi sirana!

 

Thanks for the tips. I did all of the above, but still nothing. CSGO is getting less than 50 FPS in the main menu and even less in game. I've been checking for any nVidia GPU activity but everything seems to be taken over by my intel HD 4000 integrated graphics. I noticed that after unintsalling the intel display driver, my 970M was finally showing some activity but I wasn't able to start a game to see if it was actually working due to crashing caused by insufficient specs I believe it was. MSI Afterburner is reading my nVidia GPU's temps, but there it is flatlining every other graph regarding GPU usage.

How did you end up solving it? Let me guess, your PC was not in high performance mode, using the iGPU?

Nope, I just flashed the vBIOS from prema's site which I thought might be updated compared to the one that came with the card. The one with the card only allowed me to use drivers from 359 and below, but after flashing the vBIOS again I was able to update it to a 361 driver which worked.

      Hello everyone! First of all sorry if this isn't the correct forum to post this.
      I bought a laptop few days ago. The laptop is Sager P150EM.
      Cpu:i7 3610qm 
      Gpu: amd hd 7970m
      Ram: 8gb
      Os: windows 8.1 pro
      So my problem is that everytime i install the amd driver after the intel driver my laptop freezes or gets a bsod or something that stops it from working. Any help would be appreciated. I saw somewhere something about vbios does this matter anywhere?

      Title sums it up.
       
      TL;DR: we have a Clevo that runs a desktop CPU, one with those huge 82 Wh batteries. We remove the GPU and let it use the CPU's integrated graphics. How much time for the battery to go from 100 to 0? Is it comparable to an ultrabook's?
       
      I'm theorizing a mobile set with a static eGPU and an upgradable CPU. Given a hypothetical user that needs fast processing on the go and long battery life while retaining very high degrees of mobility, but at home wants a powerful machine to run most games, I guess that would be their best bet. It would surely be more convenient to keep everything in the same disk. And even though the thing would be quite heavy to carry around, changing CPU would be more cost-efficient than changing an entire laptop. (Not sure if I'm right here, and also I'm not sure whether the motherboard in a Clevo would be replaceable when the new CPU needs a different socket, which is another reason why I'm asking here.)
       
      If my above guesses aren't correct, then an ultrabook with Thunderbolt and without a dedicated GPU would be a better choice. If they are, then we would be carrying more weight in exchange of a more cost-efficient setup, which I think would be a fair tradeoff.
       
      Also I am aware of the heating problems that these laptops suffer from, at least compared to a desktop setup. Would they be solved by moving the GPU out of the chassis, and instead plugging it with an eGPU dock via Thunderbolt port?
       
      What do you think? Is it doable? If not, why?

      I installed an NVIDIA Quadro P4000 Max-Q in a Clevo P750DM-G.
       
      Device manager hardware ID shows:
      PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1BB7&SUBSYS_75021558&REV_A1
       
      I have done the standard inf file mod, then disabled driver enforcement as I have done successfully in the past, but it's not working this time. The install starts, then fails less than half way through. I have tried the DCH version, standard version, and studio versions and none of them will work. I am probably missing something. Could it be the result of the vBIOS?

      So I just recently bought a used ORIGIN PC EON17-X. with CLEVO P775DM-G in it. I wanted to know if its possible to upgrade it with CLEVO P775TM1-G so I can have something like an RTX series in it. I wonder if its possible? Clevoparts does sale CLEVO P775TM1-G. Any expert can help? and what kind of things i would have to consider before following such a plan, what kind of hurdles? Any help is really appreciated.
