361.43 drivers are the latest and fastest, but some people have issues with them. The older 359.06 driver tends to more consistently work for people. I'd try the 361 driver, and if it does not work right then try the 359.

 

Also type with proper spelling. If you don't put in the time to ask your question, then people won't put in the time to give you an answer.

I am sorry for my bad spelling trying to do too many things at once. i have tried stock drivers, the 361.43 drivers and i get the "not compatible hardware error. My hardware id is the 05ad1028&REV_A1.

i am running windows 10 and i need a modded driver if i am correct and am a bit lost at what one i need.

Wah...wah.... kasian nih orang Surabaya..... :D

 

1.Download DDU program first. There's a link on page 1.

2.AC Syndicate eh ? Mine's have no problem running it at 358.91 Version Driver. So, I suggest you download the same. Check Page 35 from the j95 Post for the link, or you can search on google or at the nvidia site and download the driver based on the OS that you're using.

3.Still on that page 35, Download either the nv_dispi.inf OR nvcvi.inf depends on the Alienware model and GPU that you're using.

4. After everything has been downloaded, just follow the instruction on page 1.

Gonna ask this but M18Xr2 and Windows 10: Whats the story on this, has anyone been 8 beeped since they narrowed down the EDID issue to the the EVGA precision software? My system is still under warrenty atm for another lil while though ive heard confusing reports about microsoft terminating windows 8.1 security patches as early as may. Finally with a lil help from Prema managed to get my system working fully stable with the semi newest drivers (most until now unstable since 350.12) but while I would like to use windows 10 out of consistency I wanna be at least reasonably sure that it doesnt brick on me outside my warrenty. My system initially had windows 10 installed until i rolled back due to instablility issues with nvidia drivers.

361.60 version drivers. Anyone tested these yet to see if they correct for the issues with the 980M's crashing that mrfox reported earlier?

Hi, all. I'm currently using a 980m in an M17X R4 (w/Premamod vbios, card from Lee James Wood / Woodzstack). In testing, it seems like J95's 353 driver is the last one that can staunch the throttle issues (via p-state matching).

Drivers like 358.50, 359.06/359.12 etc all seem to come with incurable radical throttling (dipping and often staying at 324mhz on the clock when load is somewhere beyond 90%).

Is this about the shape of things now? Also, has anyone heard of another vbios on the horizon?

Hi all, just upgraded from an 860m 2GB to a 970m 6GB and not having much luck getting it to switch from onboard to the 970m. I've modified some drivers and so far the Optimus switching doesn't seem to be working properly.

 

I have the Prema vBios installed. The card fires up when I run 3Dmark and hits 1038MHz in P0 then over the next 30 seconds or so throttles back down to P8. It's done this since the install and nothing I've tried has fixed it.

 

Hardware IDs for the card is;

PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_13D8&SUBSYS_05AA1028&REV_A1
PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_13D8&SUBSYS_05AA1028
PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_13D8&CC_030000
PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_13D8&CC_0300
 

more than happy to post more information if needed, pulling my hair out at the moment :S

 

SOLVED: after a LOT of mucking about with drivers and modded files I think it was a failed install of Alienware's On-Screen Display. It wouldn't install or uninstall and kept giving me odd error codes. I manually cleaned all the entries from the registry by searching for "on-screen" and deleted folders or keys where necessary. After a reboot the software installed properly and now the benchmarks are looking goooood...

Just some additional feedback about the driver 359.00:

http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/10321003?

 

This time it's in dedicated mode, trying to use the laptop in this mode exclusively to see if the screen gets EDID corruption without EVGA Precision X installed. Getting 120Hz screen delivered in a next few days, so I need to know if the new screen is going to be safe.

@J95 Are you able to share at all what mods you did to the 353.06 peg_mod driver? I'm wondering if the same mods can be applied to a more recent driver like 359.06 (and beyond). Your 353.06 driver seems to be the only one that I can use without the 980m's clock bottoming out to 324mhz (and staying bottomed out) when it hits P1 with a high GPU load.

Experienced the same thing when I was on Windows 8, 353.06 is the only driver that worked for me. Same thing can be said about driver 352.84 on Windows 10.

Hello all!

 

I am at my wits end and would appreciate some help. I have an M17x R4 running Windows 7. Recently my original card, a GTX 675m, died so I picked up a GTX 765m from Eurocom. I am now at a point, 5 hours later, with error code 43 in the device manager. I have driver 331.65 from the Dell website and tried modifying the nvdm.inf file myself but I think there is a fairly high chance I fudged up. Any ways I have found to fix code 43 result in this exact same scenario happening.

 

The ID for my device is: PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_11E1&SUBSYS_05511028&REV_A1

 

I understand I need to change something like "05AE" to "0551" for example but I'm not exactly sure which entries to change, or if I should make my own brand new entries. I am also confused by the "section" part of each line and am not sure what it should be set to for my card. Edit: I forgot to mention that I did change a line with 11E1 already in it, and only changed one line under the proper place for my OS along with the string at the bottom. I like to think I followed the instructions well but again, figuring out which entry to change or what the section part means is still a mystery and may be causing the code 43 error. Also, is the "&REV_A1" part important? Do I need to add that to the end of modified line as well?

 

I have read about unlocked BIOS versions and such but I'm afraid I have zero experience with this. Is it necessary to have an unlocked BIOS? I have version A12 currently. I have also read about vBIOS and things. It's all so confusing.

 

Again, any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hey guys, I recently upgraded my AW17 R1 to a GTX 980m, unfortunately I'm not getting the performance that it should be getting. I had no trouble modifying the .inf for the driver installation, I even downloaded j95's modified inf's but that didn't help either. The only last thing I haven't tried is flashing the vbios with the Prema ones, but when I tried I got some BIOS CERT error. I've attached a screenshot with my current installation, I'm running win10 x64, and I have the latest dell bios installed. I'd appreciate any help. Thanks!screenshot.thumb.jpg.efa12412b984d365701

@nick81 @aldarxt
Thanks taking your time to reply. I was finally able to get it to work, for some reason there was a micro piece of dirt in the mxm slot and for that reason the card wasn't running at the full x16 interface. After doing some major dusting I was able to report complete x16 interface via gpu-z and therefore finally being able to get the correct performance from this card.

J95, what changed and what these mod nv_dispi.inf?

can do the mod. driver 349.65 for GTX 880M? Thank you.

Win10 TP driver. Install AW OSD then switch to dedicated mode and disable driver signing before installing drivers.

Here's something I can't seem to figure out J95, I'm using your 347.52 Mod to do overclocking but I'm still using nvdmi.inf that I've had to mod myself to get my 980m to work.

Every driver I try doesn't seem to work with the nvdispi, or the other modded files you provide. My computer boots but it hangs shortly after boot, I have to quickly reboot with advanced options to get Safe mode to remove drivers.

I've had this problem with the modified BIOS for overclocking and without, doesn't seem to matter. Somewhere in there as well I lost the ability to switch from dedicated to Optimus so I've left the system in optimus. If I leave the system with NVidia drivers modified using nvdmi.inf my system runs stable and seems to benchmark fairly well. I just can't seem to wrap my head around what is hanging Windows, this is on a very fresh install as well. I wiped system because of this issue shortly after I received my card. Any magic or tips you can suggest?

It's an Alienware 17 (2014) with an HIDEvolution 980M, id is 05AA 1028

[ATTACH=CONFIG]14290[/ATTACH]

Changed a couple settings and just ran 11801. So obviously it's not doing too bad.

Uninstall drivers using DDU. Under Options, uncheck "AMD Audio BUS" (bug) then select "Clean and Shutdown" option . Extract NV v347.52 (stock INFs) copy/overwrite nvlddmkm.sy_, nvapi64.dl_, nvapi.dl_. Optimus, use nvcvi.inf instead.

http://forum.techinferno.com/nvidia/9065-unlocking-overclocking-maxwell-900m-series.html

nvcvi.inf_v347.52_Optimus_AW_OCing_MOD.zip

nv_dispiwu.inf_v349.65_Win10TP_AW_GTX_980M_970M_880M_780M_680M.zip

 

Does this still work ?

Will this get/have windows 10 work with the 900M series ?

Anything different for newer driverS?

I recently started trying to update my Alienware 17 (march 2014) with a GTX 980m.  I read through the process of installing it and had no problems doing so, but I cannot for the life of me get my computer to boot in dedicated graphics mode.  I've taken out the battery, CMOS battery, held down the power button, and booted only in an UFEI environment.  

 

I've searched for an unlocked bios that would allow it to boot up so that I can attempt to use the proper drivers, but no success.

 

I'm using Windows 10 x64.

Bios version A14.

 

Is there anyone that has been through this process that can offer any help?  

 

Thanks in advance.

      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

      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 NVIDIA graphics card to do so. If you have an NVIDIA, you may continue
       
      1a) ( Only if upgrading to pascal graphics card )Your NVIDIA card Needs to have a GOP compliant vbios  or else it will not let you select the UEFI option on the bios. This is needed because you need to set a UEFI environment before upgrading to a 1060/1070 Since these cards don't support legacy mode. This means you will need to flash a vbios onto your card that will allow you to boot on a UEFI Environment. You will need to verify first wether your card has a GOP compliant vbios by searching up your vbios version in GPU-Z. If you have a 660m that doesn't have this, then here is the link to that vbios that does. https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/144032/144032 I think that all of the Nvida 6XXm are not GOP driver compliant and need this but do not quote me.
       
      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.
       
      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
