Hi Guys, may be someone could give me a good advice...
Alienware m17x R4 with 120hz panel form r3 (LG - LGD02C5)
Bios Dell A15 (Also tried unlocked A11)
Now installed GTX 860m 4gb (Kepler edition) works with no issue
Bought GTX 970 6gb Aetina production Works under MS driver Does not show image on eDP internal screen right after installing Nvidia modded drivers All external ports ( HDMI, eDP VGA) works with no issues - tested on benchmarks the card itself works great The internal screen could blink several times depending on vBios flashed ( so the card is trying to fire it up) Internal screen is not recognized properly - Using Monitor asset manager i observed that: GTX 860 create two monitor entries 1) Realtime and 1) Registry GTX 970m creates two monitor entries 1)Registry and 2) Registry If I change the max Hz using CRU to 100 and Close/Open laptop screen it will show picture in 1024x768 resolution with no possibility to extend and it also see a "Virtual monitor" attached to real one ( extended)
So the main issue is that INTERNAL Display is recognized AS 2 displays 1 connected to the internal laptop port and one into Display port:
vBios tried Premav2, MSI,Dell,Clevo Drivers version tried: 340,350,380,411
I searched for a something related to my issue here and found themes which are really near - but with different problems
alienware 15 r2 970m with i7-6700hq vbios request so i can overclock and mess with voltage.
BIOS version backup made with techpowerup GPU-z.
or can someone re direct me to one already made that will work? all links i find are dead, thanks.
I'm planning to upgrade my gpu to the gtx 980 from my now knackered cooked 9 times hd7970, but looking at pictures and videos on the web I have a different 3 pipe heatsink to most it seems...
Others appear to have more copper present on the memory cooler section than mine.
My question is for anyone who has the same heatsink or knows of this one, have they been able to cool another gpu successfully?
I have been attempting to change my boost clocks values for the longest time, though I've been unsuccessful. I managed to flash my modded BIOS, though no changes seem to have had happened, along with no errors either. Here's all the stuff I used and was able to get. If someone is able to help me with this, it would be greatly appreciated.
