[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) .

Did you guys disable the windows driver updates?

@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

I can't tell you anything about it unless Prema comes back and release it or releases other version. I think maybe he is on holidays or something clear.png

      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.
