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

Recommended Posts

Hi all, just joined this forum to post a problem I am seeing.

About 2 months ago, I upgraded my AW17 R1 (2013) with GTX770M to Windows 10 Pro, and it was running without much problems.

With Windows 10 Pro installed, yesterday I changed the GPU to GTX970M and installed nVidia driver with modded .inf. The modded driver is installed in dedicated GPU mode (not Optimus mode). This is done by a more knowledgeable friend of mine.

Here is brief description of observations after the modded driver installation:

1. After modded driver installation completed, we can hear the notification tone of something plugged-in in Windows (like the tone when you plug in USB device);

2. Screen immediately went black. However, the hard disk LED is blinking;

3. When an external monitor is hooked up via the HDMI port, the external monitor is able to turn on and display the Windows desktop normally. This is observed by "duplicate" the monitor;

4. When a game is launched in full screen mode, both the laptop and external monitors are able to display the game. After exiting the game, the laptop finally is displaying Windows desktop normally;

5. My friend found a workaround fix for this issue, by using the AW17 power button to enter sleep mode. Only after entering and wake up from sleep mode the laptop monitor is able to light up and showing desktop.

So, my AW17 currently is able to use GTX970M under Windows 10 but only with a workaround fix. After cold boot/reboot, the screen will still turn black. I need to press the power button to enter sleep mode and pressing it second time to wake up, only then the monitor will turn on and display normally.

Anyone of you understand what is going on and know how to solve this, pls let me know.

@Assassin-SL you need to disable "Driver Signature Enforcement" for the drivers to install properly.

Not necessarily. Unfortunately my trials on Windows 10 ended miserably... Using the Nvidia installer always gave me the same error as Assassin, while trying to install the driver manually from Device Manager, activated my 980 for 5-10 minutes and then it would "magically" switch back to Basic Display Adapter.

Reverting to Win8.1 completely solved these issues for me. Aside from the inf mod, it's practically plug and play for me.

@nick81 You are right, I did try it with driver signature enforcement disabled, but I still kept getting the error message. Good to know reverting back to 8.1 will solve the issue

@J95 359.00 is not the best driver, rolled back to 358.91 no throttling or extrange behaviors :S

Just wanted you to know :P

What's wrong with 359? No issues for me...

Do not know if there is something diferent with those drivers but it seems to behave different. I need further testing to be able to say :/

I am using Prema's beta vBIOS so maybe is not playing well with them.

Hello all,

I have an Alienware 17 (R5?) from 2013 and have upgraded from 880m to 980m.

The HWID is: PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_13D7&SUBSYS_05AA1028&REV_A1

I have installed the Eurocom driver (17_R5_05AA1028_9xxM_358.50.zip) and in the nVidia Control panel, most of the features are missing. Also, Fn+F5 does not work.

I need help locating the most suitable driver for this card.

Thanks,

Madhu.

Hey man

I am facing an annoying issue once a week approximately, which I hope you can help me with. What happens, is when I boot to Windows, my GPU won't be detected anymore. In Device Manager I'll get the most-hated "basic display adapter" instead of 980m.

In one case, this got resolved when I restarted the PC with driver signature off. Yesterday, however, I had to unistall the drivers using DDU and resinstall from scratch.

Any idea what could cause this? I am using Win8.1 with Optimus.

Just as a note, other than this issue, the driver/vbios/GPU are very stable in general. 0 issue when gaming, no throttling, low temps etc...

@Observer

- Switch back to Optimus mode to prevent EDID corruption

- Disable Hibernation: cmd (Admin) type powercfg -h off and press enter

powercfg -h off

- DDU "Clean & Shutdown"

- Disable driver signing

- Display.Driver copy/overwrite nvcvi.inf

- Set both Windows power plan and NVCPL to "High Performance"

@madhunm

*Optimus model* only use nvcvi.inf form here

@J95 359.00 is not the best driver, rolled back to 358.91 no throttling or extrange behaviors :S

No problem here.

Just copy NV Inspector folder to C:\ including *SLI* batch files. Try stock clocks first, right click "Run as Administrator" -> Open NV Inspector -> *P1* "Create Startup Task"

You must disable driver signing each time you install new drivers...just hit F8 and disable DSE, no need to run bcdedit command again.

I always disable driver signature when installing drivers. What I meant is that after using a driver for a few days, the gpu automatically switches to basic display adapter and I am forced to uninstall with DDU and reinstall the driver

This is after FN+F5 graphics switching? Strange behavior...maybe trying different Intel HD drivers.

Don't switch to dedicated mode, mainly to avoid EDID corruption.

i need something higher than what i have or prolly the latest one

my hardware ID is : PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_13D7&SUBSYS_057B1028&REV_A1

Hi J95,

Sorry for the n00b question. But, why do we need modified drivers? Why wont the WHQL drivers work? Also, for my Dell 980m running Windows 10, what vBIOS do you recommend?

Thanks,

Madhu.

      I have a iBuypower CZ-17 laptop, with a 2012 AMI BIOS that has E1762 as the version, which I believe means I have an MSI G70 motherboard. It has a 675MX GPU, but it's not useable in Windows 10 despite being "seen" in the device manager. I believe an updated, unlocked BIOS would fix my issue and have located the thread on this site with the BIOS I need.

      First of all, am I right? Will this fresh BIOS make my laptop that originally ran Windows 8 work with this old GPU?

      And second, I created this account, will wait 24 hours and made this post. Is that enough to allow me to download the file, or do I need to post elsewhere?

      Thanks!

      Title sums it up.
       
      TL;DR: we have a Clevo that runs a desktop CPU, one with those huge 82 Wh batteries. We remove the GPU and let it use the CPU's integrated graphics. How much time for the battery to go from 100 to 0? Is it comparable to an ultrabook's?
       
      I'm theorizing a mobile set with a static eGPU and an upgradable CPU. Given a hypothetical user that needs fast processing on the go and long battery life while retaining very high degrees of mobility, but at home wants a powerful machine to run most games, I guess that would be their best bet. It would surely be more convenient to keep everything in the same disk. And even though the thing would be quite heavy to carry around, changing CPU would be more cost-efficient than changing an entire laptop. (Not sure if I'm right here, and also I'm not sure whether the motherboard in a Clevo would be replaceable when the new CPU needs a different socket, which is another reason why I'm asking here.)
       
      If my above guesses aren't correct, then an ultrabook with Thunderbolt and without a dedicated GPU would be a better choice. If they are, then we would be carrying more weight in exchange of a more cost-efficient setup, which I think would be a fair tradeoff.
       
      Also I am aware of the heating problems that these laptops suffer from, at least compared to a desktop setup. Would they be solved by moving the GPU out of the chassis, and instead plugging it with an eGPU dock via Thunderbolt port?
       
      What do you think? Is it doable? If not, why?

      I installed an NVIDIA Quadro P4000 Max-Q in a Clevo P750DM-G.
       
      Device manager hardware ID shows:
      PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1BB7&SUBSYS_75021558&REV_A1
       
      I have done the standard inf file mod, then disabled driver enforcement as I have done successfully in the past, but it's not working this time. The install starts, then fails less than half way through. I have tried the DCH version, standard version, and studio versions and none of them will work. I am probably missing something. Could it be the result of the vBIOS?

      So I just recently bought a used ORIGIN PC EON17-X. with CLEVO P775DM-G in it. I wanted to know if its possible to upgrade it with CLEVO P775TM1-G so I can have something like an RTX series in it. I wonder if its possible? Clevoparts does sale CLEVO P775TM1-G. Any expert can help? and what kind of things i would have to consider before following such a plan, what kind of hurdles? Any help is really appreciated.

      I have tried to update nvidia drivers of my notebook ge72vr6rf apache pro. The only drivers that works are the ones provided by the msi. The problem is that they haven't updated those since 2016 and I can't play newer games. 
       
      Some say you need to mod your 1060 drivers, which I have no idea how to some says you need to update the flags in ini files. So please help me
       
      Thanks for your time.
