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

Recommended Posts

Hello, quick question before I even attempt to dive into any of this, are these drivers universal as far as hardware ID's are concerned or the INT files for that matter, or do they have to be tailored specifically to each individual machine? First time swapping a card in a laptop so I figured I would ask before I broke something.

Hello, I've tried (and probably messed up somewhere while trying to follow the instructions) to install the latest drivers for a card I just recently installed and it seems its not recognizing the new installed hardware, I upgraded from a nvidia 460m to a 680m, I've made sure everything was seated properly and firmly but I am having no luck.

My hardwear ID's are showing:

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

and my system specs on my M17XR3

post-31557-14494998856612_thumb.jpg

This is my first upgrade so I'm sure I goofed up somewhere but any help would be appreciated.

Hi @IggyDerp, welcome to T|I.

Follow this guide, just skip the IDT workaround (780M/Integrated sound card disabled) [Guide] Alienware M17xR3 GTX 780M installation

Thank you for the welcome c: and for the quick guide as well! Seems like everything installed smoothly once the proper steps were followed, I have just one more follow up question.

Am I able to re-enable my integrated graphics or would you advise against this and just leave it as is?

Nope, keep it disabled. Glad it worked out...:D

Hi J95, one question... Would upgrade my m18x r1 with gtx 780, I understand that with each new version of nvidia drivers, is necessary use a new "INF" modify file, which is created specifically for new version drivers.

Hi @gimdi

Correct, latest version 344.80 Single & SLI options http://forum.techinferno.com/nvidia/6307-%5Balienware%5D-aftermarket-upgrades-driver-support-modded-inf-9.html#post114229

I've been using nv_dispi.inf for some time now, mainly to exclude OEM customizations.

Since nvdmi.inf lacks Maxwell entries and to avoid multiple INFs, I've included all models & cards -> nv_dispi.inf <- AW17 - M17x - AW18 - M18x - GTX 980M - 970M - 880M - 780M - 680M - Single & SLI

Desktop entries GTX 980/970.

Note: v347.09 GTX 980M SLI and GTX 970M SLI notebooks are not supported

with this driver. With SLI enabled on these notebooks, a black screen

will occur upon uninstalling this driver. To workaround this issue,

disable SLI before uninstalling the driver.

GeForce 344.91 OEM (Clevo) - INF MOD AW 17" & 18" GTX 980M & 970M

@J95 for some reason, 344.91 in dedicated gave me the best result possible. I Checked with other benchmarks that several other members with AW 17 including eurocom's AW 17 benchmark and apparently my scores are more or less the same as them. Looks like 980m in AW 17 is in a way slightly gimped compared to other laptops.

@faritas90 http://forum.techinferno.com/alienware/8113-going-test-clevo-980m-alienware-m17x-r4-m18x-r2-aw17-97.html#post118548

    -> reboot -> F8 -> select 'Disable Driver Signature Enforcement' -> Install drivers.

  • Extract driver w/ 7-Zip/winrar
  • Extracted driver folder "34x.xx-notebook-win8-win7-64bit-international-whql" -> copy NVWMI folder.
  • Display.Driver folder -> copy/overwrite nvcv.inf(NV drivers v344.91) or nvcvi.inf (NV drivers v347.09, v344.80, v344.75) nvcvui.inf/v347.12.

Does it work with external screens? I've got tons of problems with different inf files from different users (anyway, thankful with them)

Edit: aw17 2005 60Hz screen and w8.1

v344.80 includes many fixes related to blank screen issues, try v344.91. Run DDU first (above) Clean & Shutdown option.

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

post-33687-14494999601444_thumb.jpg

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

      Required items:
      1.) Lenovo u310 (I have a Core i3 - Ivy Bridge, 8GB RAM)
      2.) 65CN99WW unwhitelisted.
      3.) eGPU (I used a EVGA GTX 750 Ti from another computer I had).
      4.) EXP GDC mPCIe Edition adapter (got from eBay - banggood seller).
      5.) ATX power supply (I used a 600W PSU from another computer I had).
      6.) USB wireless.
      7.) External monitor, keyboard, and mouse.
       
      Steps:
      1.) Obtain and install a unwhitelisted BIOS. If you are unable to obtain a unwhitelist BIOS, I think it might be possible to bypass it with Tech Inferno Fan's Setup 1.x (may need confirmation as I haven't used it myself yet.)
      2.) Shutdown computer and remove all USB devices, ethernet cables, power cables, card reader cards.
      3.) Remove mPCIe wireless card and detach antennas.
       
       
      4.) Attach EXP GDC external mPCIe cable to the former wireless slot and screw down.
       
       
      5.) Attach HDMI end of the mPCIe cable adapter to the EXP GDC device.
       
       
      6.) Attach graphics card to the EXP GDC device (I moved my laptop off the desk and onto the side shelf to make room on the desk for the monitor/keyboard/mouse).
       
       
      7.) Using the power cable adapters that came with the EXP GDC device, I hooked in my ATX power supply's 20 pin and CPU 4 pin cables. Then hooked the other end (8 pin) into the EXP GDC device. My EVGA 750 Ti also required that I use an additional PCIe power cable (6 pin) in the top of the card.
       
       
       
       
       
      8.) Then I attached my misc devices (HDMI monitor, USB keyboard/mouse/wireless adapter), and hooked in my PSU and powered it on (below is image of final product, also moved HDMI cable out of the way).
       

       
      9.) Power on your computer and let it install the standard VGA drivers and then install your drivers (I didn't have to go in the BIOS for any graphics settings, which it doesn't have anyways, nor did I have to disable iGPU in Device Manager before the card was added).
       
      Extra Info:
      I found that most games will play on med settings with about 45 FPS with this particular card.
      BDO: Upscale on - Anti Aliasing on - SSAO off - med settings.
      Skyrim: Med-High settings.
      Fallout 4: Med settings.

      Hello,
       
      I want to share the modded Bios I created for the Acer Aspire E5-572G notebook.
      The official bios 1.09 was used as a base.
      I'm offering three flavours: Microcode 01, Microcode 07 and Microcode 21.
      Microcode 21 is the latest available microcode, this is the Bios you want to use unless you want the special properties of the other microcodes.
      Microcode 07 is the latest microcode that allows using the full turbo clock speed on all cores (using single core turbo with all cores).
      Microcode 01 is the one you should take if you want to try this. I wasn't able to get it to work on mine (i5 4210m, HM86), but your mileage may vary.
      In case you want to always use an older microcode, I'm offering a script for windows that'll keep the OS from using a newer microcode (compatible with Windows Vista to Windows 10). Frequency and other things can be set up with ThrottleStop (use the latest version).
      I've also included an overclocking enabled ME firmware that should (hopefully) allow overclocking on the HM87 equipped notebooks.
      There are two flavours of this notebook available: Ones that use the HM87 chipset and others that use the HM86 chipset. Overclocking is only possible with HM87 as HM86 isn't capable of overclocking (tested it myself).
      Additionally I offer a collection of Bios, EC, ME and FD files of this device, in case anyone wants to experiment with these for a bit (EC Modding, etc.).
      I will update this bios in case there are newer parts available.
       
      Any feedback is welcome!
       

      Features:
      -Advanced Bios Options unlocked (Advanced, Power tabs and additional options in the existing tabs)
      -Nvidia 840M/940M VBioses replaced with adapted 940MX VBios with unlocked TDP Limit, unlocked Boost Table and some OC (1306,5MHz GPU/1070MHz Memory - with general usability in mind) + all voltage sliders unlocked
      -Intel Management Engine: Updated to 9.1.37.1002 + All Locks Unlocked + Overclocking Enabled For HM87 Notebooks + PAVP (Protected Audio/Video Path) Enabled
      -Flash Descriptor unlocked
      -Microcode updated to version 21 (respectively downgraded to 07 and 01)
      -Intel GOP Driver updated to 5.5.1033
      -Intel VGA Bios updated to 1042
      -Intel RST OROMs updated to 15.1.0.2545
      -Realtek Lan OROMs updated to 2.037/2.64
      -Applied a few useful BIOS patches by CodeRush (Unlock CPU Power Management Register (useful for Hackintosh Users)/Disable BIOS Lock/Disable SMI Lock)
       

      Flash procedure:
      1. Copy the BIOS file to an empty and with FAT16/32 formatted usb stick.
      2. Unplug the AC adapter.
      3. Remove the battery of the notebook - you can unlock the battery on the backside.
      4. Plug in the USB flash disk.
      5. Press and hold <Fn> and <Esc>, and then plug in the AC adapter while still holding <Fn> and <Esc>.
      6. Press the Power button. You can now stop holding <Fn> and <Esc>.
      7. The BIOS flash should now begin, the fans will spin up at max speed and the power led should blink. It should take between one to two minutes.
      8. After everything is done, you can reinsert the battery and go to the BIOS (F2). There you may want to change some settings (the BIOS flash erases all previously chosen settings).
