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

Recommended Posts

I got a modded inf file for 353.62 win10 driver from laptopvideo2go. The driver installed but there is no Nvidia control panel. Any ideas?

I am not sure if Lee James Wood has a modded win 10 driver but maybe you can try his modded driver from his dropbox he linked a few post back. [MENTION=5647]Lee James Wood[/MENTION] is there a Win 10 driver you made :) ?

Is there anyone having trouble in 353.62 Driver in optimus mode ? seems that the driver is waking up the GPU and instead using the iGPU ?

Any ideas ?

I'm on the fence with upgrading to windows 10.

Quick question DDU still works with win10? And does it disable auto update? I hear there is no way to turn it off in windows 10 :$

Disable DSE, then re-install.

Try my driver : https://www.dropbox.com/sh/46rritxlkhd0270/AAAYLmGI8lonNsXGfH-Rkvmsa?dl=0

(I think your on a M17X-R4, right ?)

And yeah, i have had the same issue. If I were to install without disabling DSE the driver looks like its installed, but really it is not. I also notice you will not get that special EXTRA prompt to "install anyways" when DSE is not disabled.

The only other time I see the clocks go no-where, is when I do the old .INF tricks to the latest driver. There is a new process everytime now, as in, depending on if your card is running in Auto, or SG or PEG/dedicated mode, the hardware ID will be different, depending on that - theres a different file that needs to be modded for each mode, because each mode acts differently. Thats what I have come up to, but I am by far - no means of an expert here. There are people on this forum, who ARE experts at this exact issue.

I'm also having issues with XTU installation. Followed the steps twice but no dice.

I have an M17x R4 with 120Hz and 980m.

For the drivers, I must've tried every single ****ing driver out there and each one is throttling like a bit**! (Nvidia ! the way it's meant to be throttled)

Flashed Prema's 1.1 Vbios -> made matters worse with every driver I could get : 34x.xx - 352.84 - 353.xx

Flashed svl7 vbios -> With wooodzstack 352.84 no throttling for the core at all. As for the memory, it throttles from 2500 to 1600 but I managed to fix it by matching the states P0,P1 -->>>> So no throttling at all :)

However, when I modify the voltage, PT, core. Throttling occurs:grumpy:

Here are my hwids:

[ATTACH=CONFIG]15663[/ATTACH]

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

I am not sure if Lee James Wood has a modded win 10 driver but maybe you can try his modded driver from his dropbox he linked a few post back. [MENTION=5647]Lee James Wood[/MENTION] is there a Win 10 driver you made :) ?

These are not Wood's mods, dropbox above v353.17 are laptopvideo2go's. [MENTION=36623]Solo wing[/MENTION]'s post mentioning v352.84 is my inf mod from here http://forum.techinferno.com/nvidia/6307-%5Balienware%5D-aftermarket-upgrades-driver-support-modded-inf-31.html#post136061

As I said before link my work instead. Some of my mods are not only HWIDs but include specific tweaks. Regarding laptopvideo2go, they surely deserve better...mention their work.

That is a win 10 driver. I use it for installing on windows 10.

This sounds exactly like not disabling DSE and installing as admin on windows 10. The GPU would get fully active as if under load, but its using the iGPU. This is where, I have warned people to be careful not to ruin thier videocards.

Yeah theres nothing special about the drivers I linked. They work for some people. ( like 40 people maybe have used them. And about 5 reported they didn't work but I have others I linked after)

The 352.84 was one of your files I threw into the mix as you instructed when i first attempted dedicazted mode, and then i tried a later driver, of going to laptopvideo2go. Seemed both worked. However, I only kept them around because they performed well. I try every driver out there, and some are simply horrible!

I do not even understand why,.

Follow instructions...first install Intel MEI v11.0.0.1157 then reboot and finally install XTU.

I do this as best I can. Two things : 1) I can't get 9.0 to install , thats 2008 visual etc... and by the time i reboot with DSE to install XTU.. it still doesn't install. It acts as if nothing is different.

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.

I got a modded inf file for 353.62 win10 driver from laptopvideo2go. The driver installed but there is no Nvidia control panel. Any ideas?

Run DDU, F8 "DSE". Re-download v353.62 from HERE, install using nv_dispi.inf (PEG) .

@haXBOXpro use this tool to prevent updates https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3073930

Disable updates under "Device installation settings". Still, WU won't download Graphics drivers "Aftermarket upgrades" missing/matching HWIDs...;)

Is there anyone having trouble in 353.62 Driver in optimus mode ? seems that the driver is waking up the GPU and instead using the iGPU ?

Any ideas ?

NVCPL -> Manage 3D settings -> set Power Management mode to "Adaptive" (Globally), Program Settings -> add all applications/games and set Power Management mode to "High Performance" / dedicated.

I'm getting this error but instead of 980 Ti it says 980M, is there anyway of fixing that?

Thank you

Uninstall the modded driver from device manager and restart the PC. I had the exact same error when upgrading from 8.1.

Got Win 10 along with all the Drivers installed on my M18Xr2 with dual GTX980m's. Works perfectly apart from locking up on cold boot tho powering it off and turning it on again gets it to boot normally. Dont suppose anyone knows a way to fix that? Its not present on the 350.12 drivers on windows 8.1.

Nothing, all should be good to go. You might want to force Windows to recheck your laptop for Windows 10 compatibility:

Win+X, then a (it will open cmd as admin), paste this:

schtasks.exe /Run /TN "\Microsoft\Windows\Application Experience\Microsoft Compatibility Appraiser"

Hit enter and then open 'get Windows 10' app, it should have a new report waiting and saying you can install windows now. You might need to check for available updates in Windows update.

I finally was able to perform a clean installation and a proper activation. I'm using 353.62 (full package) and sometimes I'm having some kind of FPS dropping (CS:GO). Are you having same behaviour? SLI 980M

      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
       
      https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/144032/144032
       
      ------------------------------------------------------------------
       
      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.
