Yep, looks fine. What have you been drying there...? ;)

What do you mean? I blew some compressed air earlier and dried it out.. Can't do much more

Nothing serious...;) just keep reseating the card, 2 screws only no need to remove the heat sink.

So the XTU thing is only for those who are overclocking and use Win 10?

Strange thing is card is kind off working, drivers install but now getting code 43.. Its detected by gpuz etc..

If the Code 43 persists , run DDU and re-install drivers. F8 'DSE'.

is this the compressed gas in a can? We noticed the remnants of liquid that evaporated. If its one of those gas based cans if they are used at an angle they start to spray propellent that evaporates quickly but is very cold. This was on the insulating black plastic in the picture. If so did anything else get wet with propellant before evaporating?

well it is just to even be able to install XTU on the latest Windows 10 build as it is being blocked the permission to install the XTU service. Even if you arent overclocking perhaps only using xtu for XMP for example the fix is needed to install and run XTU on the latest Windows 10 build.

The only 980M's I have heard of or even seen fail, in north America, that is (from china, forget it, I'm not keeping tabs on those.) are from HIDevolution and XoticPC. However - they do not have a repair team or that many people working for them at all, they ship everything to Clevo, and when they are customising things, they open it up and do what you paid for, and of course tie on a premium for the service, but when it comes to the videocards - TAKE MY WORD ON IT. THEY DO NOT TEST THEM. THEY TAKE THEM OUT OF PRE-BUILT SYSTEMS. YOU ARE GETTING LOWER TIERED VIDEOCARDS.

Now, by Tier, I mean, they have passed QA from Clevo and the mass-market assembly-line, but have not thoroughly been tested in the equipment you are going to use it for, only that it passes some electrically tests, and a quick X-Ray by an autonomous process. The ONLY people I know of, that ACTUALLY test the equipment, are Eurocom. They also are the ONLY Clevo distributor that can get MXM videocards from Clevo directly, without getting them in pre-built systems, like buying multiple very cheap SLI system and taking them apart for individual sales. THEY DO NOT DO THAT . This is in part because they are larger, the owner is a family man, Polish-Canadian, and has about 4-5 dozen employees between the warehouse AND between the storefront.

These other vendors do not have a store front that you can walk into and browse around, they do not even have a dozen techs. They have some nice artists mind you, and surely have some talented people, but they have not been in business for 20 years yet. So, word of caution, careful what you buy from them and how you handle it. Do not expect to overclock videocards pulled from OEM setups to be sold individually to match up to some of the ones actually meant to be sold individually. Its the same with QS/ES and OEM cpu's too. You can get some of these bought from stolen bins from Intel, or on the grey market pulled from systems for individual resale. OR you can buy from reputable vendors who get them by the trays or individualised packaging, they have a tendancy to perform much higher, and last longer.

Anyways, back to the screen/image thing - looks to be a cable issue, most of the time you see artifacts like that, its the LVDS cable being pulled slightly out of the socket, because the ribbon had pressure put on it, sometimes during a teardown, we leave the monitor/panel on its hinges because we're lazy, but trying to be careful, it puts pressure on the ribbon/LVDS cable, and it comes out a bit. This is also sometimes caused by cats falling asleep on the panel of the laptops too when we're not around.. bending the fiberglass or plastic, and putting enough pressure on the ribbons that it bends and pulls out abit, haha (seriously, I've seen it happen twice, for same reason!)

I have Eurocom Panther 5 (Clevo P570WM) that I purchased with 980m Sli, I know these cards in this machine are running great, besides the throttle Nvidia drivers had caused for awhile.. so the Eurocom 980m in a Eurocom I can as well vouch are dependable :) out of experience.

A 980M from woodzstack was $850 Canadian dollars...before shipping. You may need to do a conversion to UK pound sterling for your equivalent amount.

He's doing them for 695 USD so I guess that right.. Heard 970M is 600 CAD.. Let's see what Hide say.. Going to call them again., they're trying to drag out but I want this done today

I personally would not bother with hidevolution and get a 980m from woodz cos I have no patience for crappy customer service and woodz is great to deal with.

lol my brother played that years ago, IGP should be able to do a bit more than that if you have a mobile i7 cpu in the system? FPS on IGP does better on lower resolution with medium settings in a lot of games, seeing what effects drop fps by a lot can help tune it for temporary use till you have a proper Dedicated gpu again :)

      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

      Hello Everyone,

      I am trying my Sager NP 9377 to get to work but to no avail. NO POST, NO DISPLAY.
      in short>> powering on laptop causes fans to run at full speed after 10(cpu only) + 10 (now both cpu+gpu) with Caps Lock + Num Lock + Scroll Lock LEDs blinking, continuous 1 second beep, repeats for one minute with 1 second in between, then laptop shuts down.

      IN DETAIL
      System Specs are i7 4810mq 8gb gtx 880m SLI variant (though my laptop has other GPU Slot empty so only singular 880m running) 120 Hz display.

      The Problem
      > if i take out the battery and plug in AC only, the power light comes on ORANGE
      if both battery is connected, then i have both power and battery light ORANGE
      and if only battery is connected then of course laptop is waiting for me to press the power button
      but in all 3 cases the following happens
      > Pressing the power button brings laptop to some signs of life, power LED turns green, both the CPU and GPU fans have a very quick jerk but does not spin., keyboard lights up with Blue Backlight (dont know if this is relevant or not), HDD activity light starts to blink showing HDD access maybe (even when hdd is removed)
      > Display remains blank (i dont even sense the display backlight being on)
      > HDD activity light sometimes goes off after only 1-2 seconds, sometimes shows rapid blinking/activity for 4-5 seconds
      > both fans remain off (i removed back cover to check this)
      > after about 10 seconds or so, the CPU fan spins up (speed is normal, just like when using the laptop in IDLE)
      > after 10 more seconds have passed, the CPU fan seems to be turning off for a split second then both the CPU and GPU fan turn on full speed with a lot of noise.
      > Caps Lock, Num Lock and Scroll Lock LEDs all blink together with single beep for about 1 second, repeats beep with 1 second in between.
      > goes on for about 1 minute then laptop shuts down.
      > forcing the fans to spin down using FN+1 key makes them spin back up to full speed after a split second (dont even know why i tried this one -_-)

      What I Have Tried So Far
      > EC and Bios Reset (take out battery, disconnect AC Adapter, disconnect CMOS Battery, Press Power Button for upto 30 seconds)
      > Change Ram and check all available slots
      change/remove HDD
      > Repaste CPU/GPU and clean out fans
      > Checked GPU...... Flashed the 880m in this Sager with MSI vBios and tested it in a MSI Gt70 2PC i have, gpu ran fine, tested with FurMark, AC Odessey, Ghost Recon Wildlands for over an hour (unfortunately the cooling in my MSI is not good enough it already runs hot, and this 880m causes thermal throttling as well as power limit throttling sometimes). Reflash 880m with original Clevo vBios and put back into the Sager, still no boot, same results as before.
      > Checked the CPU..........checked the 4810mq in the MSI GT 70 which worked fine, as well as tried the 4810mq from the MSI in the Sager, still no boot.
      > Suspected bad GPU fan connection......therefore forced both fans to full speed as soon as i press power button (using FN+1 Keys) and both fans turn on full speed, same results.
      > tried charging the battery to the max before turning on on battery only, same results.

      >>------- The laptop has had some random shutdowns in the past too during gaming but would turn back on fine after waiting for 10 mins or so, then i sold it to some guy who brought it back to me the next day saying that it just turned off during gaming and wont turn back on, i returned his money, did all the troubleshooting above to no avail. then i finally put it aside to wait until i get some other system in which i can test the CPU and GPU.
      Then one day i turned it on (after leaving it untouched for a couple months), same results as above, i decided to try once without battery and it Freakin Turned ON!!!, used it for a couple days without battery, played a few games (thermal throttling was observed here and there), but then this happened again and this time it seems permanent . And now i have not only repeated all the steps above but this time also checked the CPU and GPU in the MSI GT70 too. ------------<<


      Some Observations
      > touching the CPU heat pipes feels warm, but the GPU heat pipes are colder (GPU never even booted?). dont know if this is normal or not.
      > i replaced one of the capacitors near the CPU once, but i did use the laptop for quite a while after that without any issues.
      > my Idle temps were always below 40c for both CPU and GPU, so an overheat warning as soon as laptop is powered on seems unlikely (false overheat warning?, but GPU does not even seem to be detected/ booted as heat pipes remain cold to touch), also i repasted the CPU and GPU multiple times.
      > The guy who sold me the laptop told me that the power adapter was originally a Dell, and it was modified to use with this Sager by replacing the cable with a 4-Pin one from a Toshiba (same pinout as the Sager), but then again i have used this laptop for quite a while on the same adapter.
      > From day 1 of having this laptop, some keys on the keyboard (w, s, t, c and numpad 4) did not work 99% of the time. pressing really hard on any one of them sometimes made ALL of them work for a while. any thoughts on this issue?? (even if its unrelated).

      So what seems to be the issue here?
      GPU not detected ?, False temperature alert?, Bad fan?.
      Any help towards resolving this will be greatly appreciated.
      Thanks in advance .

      I recently purchased a replacement 980M (Clevo model) for my P770DM-G after the original died, however, after installing the card the laptop doesn't boot. I only get a black screen, and after a couple minutes the fans spin to max before shutting down, which is the same thing that happens when I try to boot it without any gpu at all. I've tried the reset procedure, unplugging, removing battery, and removing CMOS, to no avail. It does beep before shutting down (I counted 22 times exactly). Anyone have any insight as to what the problem is?

      Following the release of NVIDIAs new 436.02 driver which I mentioned in an earlier article here, I've decided to make a quick and dirty video showing off NVIDIAs new Sharpen filter which is part of their Game Filter feature. It works with the most popular APIs including DX 9, 11, 12 and Vulkan and can be set on a per-game basis with granular settings of 0-100 unlike AMDs RIS which is limited to Navi and lacks DX 11 support.
