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

Recommended Posts

Hi man. It's fixed with v344.65, "game ready driver" BS, 120Hz/144Hz screwed monitor profiles/blank screen.

Hi again,

Nor v344.65, v344.75 works for me.

Screen still gets garbled up, like out of focus...little lines like a Van Gogh painting ((no example, did not make screenprint)

So still on v344.11.

Any suggestions?

-Thanks!-

Hi man. v344.65 worked fine for 2 days, blurry screen all over again. I'm back to v344.11.

Temporary Fix. Latest games.

Screen refresh rate reverts to 60Hz upon restart LGD02C5 (5 months) and the messed up monitor profiles/v34x.xx bugs, all fixed...:D

Posting soon.

    AW LGD02C5/120Hz Fix
    1- Display.Driver_v344.11_75_LGD02C5.7z -> v344.75 core DLLs+ -> 120Hz reverts to 60Hz Fix -> Blurry screen/text fixed. Unlocked vBIOS Recommended
  • Set refresh rate to 120Hz -> Uninstall current drivers DDU
  • Download GeForce 344.11 WHQL
  • Extract driver 7-Zip v9.25-x64
  • Delete Display.Driver folder -> Copy/Paste (7-Zip) [Link Removed]
    2- Display.Driver_v344.75_LGD02C5.7z v344.75 -> Blurry screen/text fixed. Unlocked vBIOS/cards -> don't install this version, it removes the Power target adjust ability & readings/greyed out.
  • Download GeForce 344.75 WHQL
  • Extract driver 7-Zip v9.25-x64
  • Delete Display.Driver folder -> Copy/Paste (7-Zip) [Link Removed] -> v344.80 HotFix
    Both options include CUDA nvcuvenc Mod, all AW Models/cards supported.
    @JoostvanBoxmeer @godfafa try v344.11/v344.75 core DLLs+ (1). I don't have time to test OCing, godfafa compare results...;)

Hey J95,

I hope you can help me out, I upgraded my m17x r3 (win8.1) with a 680m and modded the 344.75 driver, disabled the driver signing via cmd and installed the driver ( was asked if I want to install it, pressed yes) then rebooted and got a blackscreen.

So I disabled the IGP and set display to PEG, and now I am here.

Device manager displays my GPU as Microsoft Basic Display Adapter and the id changed.

From : PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_11A0&SUBSYS_04BA1028&REV_A1

PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_11A0&SUBSYS_04BA1028

PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_11A0&CC_030000

PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_11A0&CC_0300

To : PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_11A0&SUBSYS_04901028&REV_A1 PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_11A0&SUBSYS_04901028

PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_11A0&CC_030000

PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_11A0&CC_0300

And now I dont know what to do next.

I hope that you can help me :D

and the second one , i just have to repeat the progress with the driver you are refering to and remove the other one i installed?

    Win8 -> Disable driver signing.
  • Download Geforce 344.80 Beta
  • Extract driver with 7-Zip -> Extract to "344.80-notebook-win8-win7-64bit-international-whql"
  • Display.Driver folder -> copy/overwrite nvdmi.inf (unzip).
  • Extracted driver folder -> run setup.exe
    Safe to delete. My driver folder.

@JoostvanBoxmeer Nvidia finally fixed the blurry screen & refresh rate (5 months) bugs v344.80, unbelievable coincidence..WTF. Spent many hours doing this...;)...;)

Yep, basically a workaround for v344.75 (31 installs), now I know where to look next time.

This is a beta driver that addresses the following issues:


    GeForce GTX 980 displays texture shimmering when Texture Filtering Quality set to High Quality.
  • GPU outputs fuzzy lines over DisplayPort after a period of time following driver updates.
  • System hang up and black screen after power on with some monitors (DP1.2 & 4K/60Hz) + GTX980

J95 do you know if these finally perform like everyone says 327 does for nvidia and for example 880m.

Create a restore point and find out...:P

@mw86 Try it out, there's more positive feedback with this version than 344.75.

As I said, you need to disable driver signing first.

Please follow the instructions below.

- Windows 8 - disable driver signing

Command Prompt (Admin) Win key + X Type:

bcdedit /set {current} testsigning yes

-> "The operation completed successfully" ->reboot ->Install drivers.

Exit test mode, cmd (admin).

bcdedit /set {current} testsigning no

->reboot.

IGP disabled and display set to PEG are the default settings now. Run DDU/third option (safe mode)

Enable 'F8' boot option.

cmd (Admin)

bcdedit /set {default} bootmenupolicy legacy

F8 -> safe mode -> DDU clean & shutdown

F8 -> "Disable Driver Signature Enforcement"

Install v344.80 http://forum.techinferno.com/nvidia/6307-%5Balienware%5D-aftermarket-upgrades-driver-support-modded-inf-9.html#post114229

IGP disabled (Integrated Graphics) PEG enabled and driver signing disabled, try re-seating the card. If it still fails, faulty GPU.

      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.

      Well that didn't take long for NVIDIA to respond to Navi. The new 436.02 Game Ready Driver adds the following features:

      Game Ready
      Provides increased performance and the optimal gaming experience for Apex Legends, Battlefield V, Forza Horizon 4, Strange Brigade, and World War Z
      Gaming Technology
      Adds Beta support for GPU Integer Scaling Adds Beta support for Ultra-Low Latency Mode Adds support for new Freestyle Sharpen Filter Adds support for new G-SYNC compatible monitors Driver release notes: https://us.download.nvidia.com/Windows/436.02/436.02-win10-win8-win7-release-notes.pdf


      This isn't the old max pre-rendered frames setting, its supposedly a new improved algorithm that matches AMDs anti-lag feature for Navi.

      Next up is support for integer scaling which Intel recently announced but it seems NVIDIA beat everyone to the punch. Unfortunately, this is only for Turing for now:


      Additionally NVIDIA has created a new filter for FreeStyle simply called "Sharpen" which improves performance and visual clarity that is supposed to be on par with RSI but with much broader support and granular adjustment. According to Eurogamer, "They also point out that the amount of sharpening can be adjusted from 0 to 100 per cent, applied on a per-game basis and works with games across all major graphics APIs: DX9, DX11, DX12 and Vulkan".


      Finally, the driver brings with it some game performance improvement, including very popular titles like Apex Legends which sees up to 23% boost at 1080p:



      Overall a pretty solid release, it had some issues earlier when it was released with GeForce Experience being force installed but it should be remedied by now.
