[Alienware - Clevo - MSI] Aftermarket Upgrades Driver Support - Modded INF

Recommended Posts

If the 580m boots fine using the above settings 'IGP disabled and PEG enabled' then unfortunately it looks like you have a faulty card. IGP enabled with an aftermarket card (680m) will end up with a black screen too.

Primary Display -> PEG (not "always enable PEG" setting)

Internal Graphics Device -> Disabled

Clevo/blue PCB from eurocom?

No this was a used one I got from ebay, although the first time I tried to upgrade the card I got was from eurocom thru the ebay store upgradeyourpc. That card was blowing my system up with blue screens and the support I got from them was the very worst, it literally consisted of asking me if I could boot into safe mode and then never heard from them again. I had to get ebay involved on that

Ok cool ! but when i do extract the 337.88 files the installation start automatically right after and i have the no device detected that come up. Also i created a folder called NVIDIA To extact the files. Am i correct or i can just extract it in a random folder ? It seems that i cannot find the ''nvdmi.inf'' in the Display.Driver folder too. Thanks for the help by the way, its really appreciated.

I am a new arrival here. I found the information on this site helpful, and today I became a paid member so I can download.

I have a M17xR3, Win7, and am attempting to install a GTX880m card (from a GTX460m). My take from the previous posts is the 337.88 driver is still the desireable one. No?

Today I have successfully downloaded and unzipped the 337.88 driver from a link provided in an earlier post in this thread.

I have been unsuccessful downloading and unzipping the associated modified nvdmi.inf file in the same earlier post. The file downloads, but when I attempt to unzip, it fails saying fiolder is empty.

Can someone provide me with a working link please?

Or... Is it possible for me to make the required changes in the nvdmi.inf file myself? What changes do I need to make?

Tried all that previously. Still no success. Here is another error message.

I'm guessing its just a bad file. Can you confirm on your end please? Thank you.

Unfortunately for me your guidence is criptic. I would appreciate you being more verbose. Not all the way to the 'guidence for dummies level', but closer. That being said, I have tried your most recent suggestions, as best I could follow, and still am unsuccessful obtaining the contents of your compressed file. Same error messages prevail. Would it be possible for you to post a link to an uncompressed file so I can move on with this? The file size does not appear to be big. Thank you.

Anti-virus software deleting the content or Zip file associations issue. .zip -> right click -> open with -> Windows Explorer/or choose default program. Now zip file associations should be restored.

      Required items:
      1.) Lenovo u310 (I have a Core i3 - Ivy Bridge, 8GB RAM)
      2.) 65CN99WW unwhitelisted.
      3.) eGPU (I used a EVGA GTX 750 Ti from another computer I had).
      4.) EXP GDC mPCIe Edition adapter (got from eBay - banggood seller).
      5.) ATX power supply (I used a 600W PSU from another computer I had).
      6.) USB wireless.
      7.) External monitor, keyboard, and mouse.
       
      Steps:
      1.) Obtain and install a unwhitelisted BIOS. If you are unable to obtain a unwhitelist BIOS, I think it might be possible to bypass it with Tech Inferno Fan's Setup 1.x (may need confirmation as I haven't used it myself yet.)
      2.) Shutdown computer and remove all USB devices, ethernet cables, power cables, card reader cards.
      3.) Remove mPCIe wireless card and detach antennas.
       
       
      4.) Attach EXP GDC external mPCIe cable to the former wireless slot and screw down.
       
       
      5.) Attach HDMI end of the mPCIe cable adapter to the EXP GDC device.
       
       
      6.) Attach graphics card to the EXP GDC device (I moved my laptop off the desk and onto the side shelf to make room on the desk for the monitor/keyboard/mouse).
       
       
      7.) Using the power cable adapters that came with the EXP GDC device, I hooked in my ATX power supply's 20 pin and CPU 4 pin cables. Then hooked the other end (8 pin) into the EXP GDC device. My EVGA 750 Ti also required that I use an additional PCIe power cable (6 pin) in the top of the card.
       
       
       
       
       
      8.) Then I attached my misc devices (HDMI monitor, USB keyboard/mouse/wireless adapter), and hooked in my PSU and powered it on (below is image of final product, also moved HDMI cable out of the way).
       

       
      9.) Power on your computer and let it install the standard VGA drivers and then install your drivers (I didn't have to go in the BIOS for any graphics settings, which it doesn't have anyways, nor did I have to disable iGPU in Device Manager before the card was added).
       
      Extra Info:
      I found that most games will play on med settings with about 45 FPS with this particular card.
      BDO: Upscale on - Anti Aliasing on - SSAO off - med settings.
      Skyrim: Med-High settings.
      Fallout 4: Med settings.

      Hello,
       
      I want to share the modded Bios I created for the Acer Aspire E5-572G notebook.
      The official bios 1.09 was used as a base.
      I'm offering three flavours: Microcode 01, Microcode 07 and Microcode 21.
      Microcode 21 is the latest available microcode, this is the Bios you want to use unless you want the special properties of the other microcodes.
      Microcode 07 is the latest microcode that allows using the full turbo clock speed on all cores (using single core turbo with all cores).
      Microcode 01 is the one you should take if you want to try this. I wasn't able to get it to work on mine (i5 4210m, HM86), but your mileage may vary.
      In case you want to always use an older microcode, I'm offering a script for windows that'll keep the OS from using a newer microcode (compatible with Windows Vista to Windows 10). Frequency and other things can be set up with ThrottleStop (use the latest version).
      I've also included an overclocking enabled ME firmware that should (hopefully) allow overclocking on the HM87 equipped notebooks.
      There are two flavours of this notebook available: Ones that use the HM87 chipset and others that use the HM86 chipset. Overclocking is only possible with HM87 as HM86 isn't capable of overclocking (tested it myself).
      Additionally I offer a collection of Bios, EC, ME and FD files of this device, in case anyone wants to experiment with these for a bit (EC Modding, etc.).
      I will update this bios in case there are newer parts available.
       
      Any feedback is welcome!
       

      Features:
      -Advanced Bios Options unlocked (Advanced, Power tabs and additional options in the existing tabs)
      -Nvidia 840M/940M VBioses replaced with adapted 940MX VBios with unlocked TDP Limit, unlocked Boost Table and some OC (1306,5MHz GPU/1070MHz Memory - with general usability in mind) + all voltage sliders unlocked
      -Intel Management Engine: Updated to 9.1.37.1002 + All Locks Unlocked + Overclocking Enabled For HM87 Notebooks + PAVP (Protected Audio/Video Path) Enabled
      -Flash Descriptor unlocked
      -Microcode updated to version 21 (respectively downgraded to 07 and 01)
      -Intel GOP Driver updated to 5.5.1033
      -Intel VGA Bios updated to 1042
      -Intel RST OROMs updated to 15.1.0.2545
      -Realtek Lan OROMs updated to 2.037/2.64
      -Applied a few useful BIOS patches by CodeRush (Unlock CPU Power Management Register (useful for Hackintosh Users)/Disable BIOS Lock/Disable SMI Lock)
       

      Flash procedure:
      1. Copy the BIOS file to an empty and with FAT16/32 formatted usb stick.
      2. Unplug the AC adapter.
      3. Remove the battery of the notebook - you can unlock the battery on the backside.
      4. Plug in the USB flash disk.
      5. Press and hold <Fn> and <Esc>, and then plug in the AC adapter while still holding <Fn> and <Esc>.
      6. Press the Power button. You can now stop holding <Fn> and <Esc>.
      7. The BIOS flash should now begin, the fans will spin up at max speed and the power led should blink. It should take between one to two minutes.
      8. After everything is done, you can reinsert the battery and go to the BIOS (F2). There you may want to change some settings (the BIOS flash erases all previously chosen settings).
