I am an M17X R4 owner running WIN10 AND currently upgrading my laptop from an 7970m to a 970m.
I have already successfully transferred my 970m to the motherboard and windows has detected the the gpu in device manager, optimus mode is enabled and the intel graphics are also detected.
The laptop is currenlty booting in full UEFI mode and running bios A11 stock.
Currently I am experiencing issues with getting the 970m to run, my Intel graphics keep running only but i can see the 970m is installed and the settings can be changed from the nvidia control panel and can be benchmarked using FurMark.
I managed to modify an nvidia driver using the device hardware ID's (not sure if that is the issue) but i think the main reason why the 970m is being used is because i require an unlocked Bios to change which GPU it runs on?
Everything up until this point has been an interesting learning curve and i feel i have almost cracked it.
what do you all think, any advice would be much appreciated by myself and my laptop
Im no expert on the matter but if anyone wants any advice from my experiences above i would be happy to help the best i can. Thx
I had recently purchased an exp gdc beast v8.0 and I tried using a gtx 1050 with it and I'm getting error 43. It's said that the 372.70 driver works and does not give error 43 but when I try to install that driver it gives me an error before installing saying that no compatible nvidia graphics hardware found or something like that so I'm unable to install the driver but I heard the driver helps. So far I've not been able to find any guides on how to mod my driver, all I know is that it has something to do with editing the INF file. Can anyone please guide me on how to mod the driver or even mail me a copy of their modded INF file on my email email@example.com It will be a great help. My laptop model is a gigabyte p15fv2.
Thanks for reading
Hello Guys! I recently got subscribed into this Forum,
My name is EDY and I live in MEXICO, Close to USA Border...
I am an enthusiastic gamer, and also PC Technician, I like to get custom rigs to play games.
Lately I have been playing with 15 Inch Computers, my three last computers were 15 Inch. I am very conservative and somehow afraid to buy something it does not accomplish on my will.
My current rig is a CLEVO P750DM2-G: 1080p 120hz 5ms Screen, i7700K (OC to 4.6Ghz, GTX 1070 8GB (OC to 1800-1900mhz Core Speed), 32GB Kingston HyperX 2400Mhz RAM, and 500GB M.2 SSD from Samsung, so as X400 SSD 500GB and firecuda 1000GB HDD. ((MY TEMPS when gaming are: CPU 78c-83c and GPU 78c-80c, I delidded CPU and also applied CLU on heatsink for both))
I am willing to try a 17 Inch Computer for gaming, but my concerns are thermals, noise and portability, since I also use my Laptop at work like 8-10 Hours daily (light tasks as productivity).
(I am looking for P870KM1 Clevo Laptop as an Option since it has Desktop Processor, and from most of the 17 Inch Monsters this looks to be one of the most powerful ones, I am not interested on SLI GPUS at all).
My main goal is to get single GTX1080, but that I can get it also from EUROCOM TORNADO F5 with a great set of tweaks (including unlocked BIOS), so ending with this long chat, What is better Guys? Keep with the 15" Laptops or give the step to the 17" Ones??
Hope to have some recommendations, and thanks to all.
Hi guys. I have had my egpu setup and running fine for the past year or so on my mbp (mid 2012) which has a hdd drive.
I now want to improve the gaming performance, so I've bought an ssd.
I manage to get through all the steps in eGPU Setup 1.2 but when i go through the bootloader, it says at the very end "No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key".
I'm guessing it is to do with my ssd being in the optical drive bay location (i assume this is hd1) and the original hdd (hd0) being disconnected, so windows can't see it when in bootloader.
I think I need to edit the config file for the chainloader, so the bootloader reads the ssd but what exactly do i need to change?
I tried changing the map section (line 55):
map (%FIRSTHDD%) (hd0)
Changing the (hd0) to (hd1) put the bootloader in a loop!? So I am not sure what to try next...
Any help is greatly appreciated!
