awww I feel bad bro I hope you get a replacement sooner than expected and for cheap. Sucks when hardware fails and yeah it is rough on IGP. Intel gpu has been way behind since the dawn of Intel lol true. Ivy bridge and haswell igp gives an attempt of atleast providing a playable game but with less than desired reolution and detail...

I hate to mention AMD gpu (bleh under experience) but a 7970m is so cheap and for the performance could be a viable alternative till you get your Nvidia 980m GPU again.

they can overclock a decent amount and cost next to nothing compared to the alternatives in how much performance per $ you get. I certainly would consider one as a temporary card if it is compatible with your system.

had lots of AMD and Nvidia gpu and if I had to would use AMD temporarily just never my main choice :)

Doesn't specifically need to be a 770m, just a card that's cheap and compatible.

if I understand correct you removed card to install thermal pads and paste and now after reinstall device manager shows issue with card. If this is true then I would suggest what was suggested some posts back and try to carefully reseat the card in the MXM slot . they can be very frustrating to get them back in and working right sometimes.

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

Sent from my LG-H811 using Tapatalk

yeah shouldn't be pricing in this thread. But if I see a member is active, I go as low as I can usually. On occasion I get someone who creates an account, and the first piece of activity they do is send me a PM. I do not give them the same pricing.

They get the same product, and i tell them to become active on the forums sure, I do not want to over step my lucky privileges on these forums. Many forums will not allow people if they are also vendors to post about such things, it is literally a case by case in some circumstances.

For the record, I offered Tom $600CAD/$855CAD since he is active. This pricing is amazing. If shipping to the USA, $45CAD and it is shipped anywhere in the USA. Pricing has changed abit, because US dollar is much higher then the canadian and it keeps rising. So, basically our costs have gone up,

but we have maintained our pricing, which is difficult.

Anyways, let us not bombard this thread with this sort of thing before we get warnings, please.

I have a drop box link for people who want my list of M17X-R4 drivers to install, in order, and with current viable drivers for 980M:

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/6i8ejny8o86kzji/AAAh8_sEXYAL50gAP-_CYvkYa?dl=0

Sent from my HTC One using Tapatalk

I actually think so. Been awhile mind you. But he wanted pricing on 970M/980M I thought. We have 770M and 870M (can make better deal for 870M then other cards I think) Also, there is 780M which still run a pretty price, and 880M which is basically same card and price... the 295 from AMD is powerful, and cheaper in comparison then other cards. I would rate it nearly as efficient as buying a 970M which I think it the best pricing for performance.

If you had a 7970 heatsink too, then your good, I use that on my 980M and have used it for 880M, 780M and 680M 675M and works fine. Have to remove some black plastic tape/paper on the DIE area but that's about it.

Hey Guys,

I

I upgraded to win10, and everything seemed to work but the driver won't install. I used the same method I've been using, I put my GPU info (cut and paste) under the win10 column like I would if I using win8.1 then the second id under the card driver section on the bottom. I get message card not supported blah blah. The driver is 353.62. When I installed the win8.1 version no problem.

My info is:

%NVIDIA_DEV.13D7.05AB.1028%=Section146, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_13D7&SUBSYS_05AB1028

NVIDIA_DEV.13D7.05AB.1028= "NVIDIA Geforce GTX 980m"

Does something different have to be done?

Thanks for your thoughts.

1028 = okay so its DELL... 13D7 says 980M.... 05AB..what is that, AW17 ? or M17X-R?

You need to disable DSE. Google "Disable DSE " before installing graphic drivers.

Then, use a modified driver, but also, you will need to put your laptop into dedicated mode, because there is no Optimus for Windows 10. it doesn't work and causes some issues.

So severe, I fear it might even destroy your card.

I made a thread on a different forum based on what I gathered from this thread alone, and for me and others it seems to work. But the same info is linked like 50x in this thread.

Windows 10 and nVidia 980M GTX , M17X-R4, without Optimus: Working Great ! | NotebookReview

mines is just convenient for me as its on first page and I have it "Favorited" on my toolbar :P

Hope this helps. If so, buy J95 a beer or something.

if you reseated the card carefully and the bios recognizes it perhaps it is just a driver issue. I would follow the steps Lee James Wood outlines in the few posts above. It seems to be the same issue that Scanner is having as well.

driver signing has to be disabled and folow the other steps outlined as well with the modded driver. Lee James Wood provided his dropbox link for users to download his modified drivers. I hope that helps get your system going again

      Hello Guys this is my first post here!
       
      So my original post was this:
       
      "I don't even know if any active forum is out there on this laptop and on this issue, but after installing my new DHCG2 LTN173HT02 120hz display, I am unable to boot up on it. I do have a modded bios which the video setting is set to PEG, and just about read every forum about this but have not found a solution. I have tried resetting the bios, made sure the cable is plugged into the Edp port, and have made sure I have an UFEI Windows installation and legacy mode is turned off. I don't know what else to do and if anyone could help it would mean alot to me! "
       
      The reason it was not booting up on a pure UEFI environment is because my 660m did not have the GOP compliant driver vbios. You would need this in order to boot up in a pure UEFI environment which at the time I didn't know, and my fix was to stick to legacy. Any card before the 660m will most likely require this if you need to boot up in a pure UEFI environment. If you do not have this vbios driver while it is set to UEFI and plug in the 120hz lcd, it will beep 8 times and you will be forced to plug back in the 60hz display to change it back to legacy.
       
      This was the vbios that I can say worked for me and had the GOP compliant driver for the 660m

      ------------------------------------------------------------------
       
      These are the steps to upgrade from a normal 1600x900 60hz display to a 1920x1080 3D 120hz Display which is needed if you want to update your graphics card to a more modern one.
       
      I am making this guide because I felt frustrated that for this awesome computer, there aren't really any post in 2020 to upgrade the LCD panel to the 3D 120hz one. And The older posts I scavaged through really helped me little in doing this upgrade.
       
      Anyways lets begin
       
       
      1) If you have a stock amd graphics card, and are wanting to install the 120hz display, then your journey ends here and you will have to upgrade to an nvida graphics card to do so. If you have an Nvidia, you may continue
       
      2) On the 60hz display, I would start by making sure that you have windows 10 installed or reinstall with UEFI support as it is needed if you are installing a pascal graphics card. If you have legacy mode enabled, and are not planning to upgrade to a pascal graphics card and keeping your old Nvidia 6XXM, then disregard this and head on to step 5 (although I would recommend to read everything)
       
      3) turn the laptop off and boot into the bios. In order to boot into the bios, spam the F2 key while it is turning on.
       
      4) Once in the bios, go to the Boot menu, and make sure to Disable "Secure Boot", Make sure that importantly if you converted over to a UEFI installation of windows, UEFI mode is chosen (UEFI  Environment will be needed for a pascal graphic card and legacy will not be compatible) then again, if you are on a legacy installation of windows 10, disregard this if you don't want to upgrade to a pascal graphics card.
       
      5) we can now start looking at the 120hz display. I bought mine on ebay with this seller https://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Dell-Alienware-M17X-R4-17-3-FHD-WLED-3D-V-M-LCD-Screen-DP-N-DHCG2-GN36T/273644412867?hash=item3fb67a5fc3:g:9A0AAOSw5AhcP1pw:sc:USPSPriority!32720!US!-1 (Just in case the link goes bad, this was the listing name"Alienware M17X R4 17.3" FHD WLED 3D V M LCD Screen DP/N DHCG2 GN36T"  with the screen model being  LTN173HT02 and Dell part number GN36T )
       
      6) Since my listing came with the video cables, I did not have to go out and look for the video cable. If yours did not come with the cables, You will also NEED to get the video cable it is required. the Dell Part number is N392W. I cannot stress enough This video cable is required and the 60hz's video cable CANNOT be used with the 120hz one or else you will brick your computer from what I read.
       
      7) Once it comes In, we can start to take apart the computer to Install our new display. I watched this video to remove the old 60hz and install the 120hz panel 
       
       
       
      8) Before I would remove the whole 60hz lcd panel, I would first make sure that you can boot on the 120hz panel. Notice that there is one connecter with screws on both sides right next to where the 60hz screen connecter is. Make sure that you put the 120hz one with the connector where screws are. This is known as the Edp port and cannot be confused with the LVDS port. Again, you want to plug the new 120hz display into the EDP port and unplug the 60hz one.
       
      9) If the installation was done correctly, then you should have no problem booting with the screen. if it is giving you 8 beeps, then just plug in the 60hz display, and navigate back to the bios to make sure everything is in order and refer back to steps 2-3. If you happen to be an advanced user like me and went ahead and installed a modded bios, then on the 60hz display make sure that the video setting is set to PEG. I dont think this is necessary to have a modded bios since the bios automatically changes the video setting when the 120hz display is detected and should be a last resort option to install a modded bios. I got my modded A12 bios from a guy in this forum named klem for 10 US dollars thorough paypal. Shoot him a message in the forum below.
       
       
      10) Once the new LCD is tested and you know you can boot up with no problems, go ahead and finish removing the old 60hz LCD and proceed to finish installing the 120hz LCD. And you are done. 
       
      A couple of words from my personal experience: When I installed the 120hz display, and booted up windows on it, and turned the computer off, it refused to turn on for some weird reason. I don't know why it would turn on when the AC and battery where on. regardless of what this was, I fixed it by Reseting the CMOS. If you don't know how to do this, do a quick google search and after turning it on i got 5 beeps which i then turned the computer off, and then turned it back on which the computer just reset itself and when it turned back on I was able to boot up into windows.
       
      I also read an intresting post  where you could upgrade to the 1060 on this computer which is what I eventually want to and for whoever wants to they need to have the 120hz display. As a side note, I did this with the stock 660m that the system originally came with. What i mean with this is that I'm not sure if this procedure works with other graphic cards. Although I suspect that it has. since to upgrade your graphics card, the 120hz LCD needs to be setup
       
      This is the forum that I was able to find about upgrading the graphics card to the 1060.
       
      Anyways I hope I at least helped someone transform their computer! In 2020!

      hello all, i just got a gtx 980m from a seller on amazon. i have the card installed in my alienware m17x r4, i have updated the bios to A15 stock, in the bios its showing the card is there, in windows 10 the card is also shown in device manager, but it has the code 43 error, i have disabled driver signing and installed a modded driver but its not working, i have uefi legacy mode enabled, i need help getting this working, do i need a modded bios to get the card working? is my card a g-sync version ? any help with this would be great, also if it is a g-sync card, can i vbios flash it with a non g-sync vbios? how can i tell if this card is a clevo or msi ? thanks in advance

      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 
       
      Please help it will be of great service to me.
