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

Recommended Posts

I have a noob question, sorry if it has been asked before, but there are a lot of posts to read on this thread. I have recently gotten a clevo P870DM2 with a GTX1080 and I saw that other owners were installing these drivers. My question is, what are the benefits of installing these modded drivers over vanilla?

Any help would be appreciated - I am havin trouble installing drivers even now that I've switched to a Quadro K5100M card (originally from Precision M6800). I am getting either failure of setup application or an information that the driver might be corrupted or victim of tampering.

Is it possible that the CPU is a problem - i7 3940XM? How about the PSU - I have a Dell 210 Watt one.

@thegh0sts try out 372.95, GPU temp dropped 9ºC & CPU temp dropped 6ºC, test first 372.90 then 372.95 same game.

 

P870DM2/3 GTX1080 owners. like above, please compare GPU & CPU temperatures between v372.90 & v372.95.

 

 

@szumial Install 372.95 using nvdmwi.inf below, disable driver signing before installing drivers and copy the PhysX folder from v372.90 Win10.

210W PSU is pretty weak for both 880M/3940XM, please run stock clocks.

Thank you @J95 for commitment! I got a K5100M running and stable. I will give the 880m another try with your advice. And will definitely get myself w stronger PSU in the near future.

 

@trashmonk - people install these drivers when theu upgrade their laptops with different GPUs that were not originally intended to be put in these machines. For instance I swapped an old Quadro for a GTX880m and now for a newer Quadro K5100M card. Then you need modded drivers.

I am unsure exactly which driver to download. Its a little confusing. I have a alienware m17x r4 with a 60hz non 3d lcd and a 880m card. Could someone be so kind as to point me to the correct driver download for this setup. The only thing i can get to work is mr foxs older premade drivers. Id like the newer drivers.  Ive tried modding the inf myself and it passes the compatibility check then fails the install. Yes i did disable driver enforcement.  Also note i am running win10 x64. Thank you ahead of time. Seems like a great community here!

I have a 3rd gen i7 if that makes a difference as well..

After upgrading (automatically) my computer to Win10 Anniversary Edition, my GTX970M never get activated, whatever I try, even with the Win 10 embeeded driver for nvidia cards... They just crashed after launch :( Seems to be an Optimus problem.

 

 

I'm hoping @Prema will release the version 3 of its BIOS for my P170EM since I seems that I cannot take advantage of my 970M anymore :( Apart from that, updating is so much a hassle with v2, I'm upgrading my video driver only if I had no choice...

Same here... with P170EM, @J95 is on it.

 

The only version that works for me so far (did not update my driver for ages) is 359.12 BUT I had to uninstall the last version of Windows 10 Update (1607 - Anniversary Edition).

Thank you @J95! Your guidance allowed me to get a GTX880m working in a Dell M6700 - something theoretically impossible. I didn't need to get rid of the Physx folder, however I needed a different approach to modding the INF file. I followed your tips and now everything works like charm. Now let's get to some testing! :) CHEERS

I have an M17X-R3 with an 880M and have used these modded drivers before without issue.

 

The latest Windows 10 update really screwed my  laptop up. Once I finally got it installed I was back to the white screen. I pulled the card and got the sound working again and then put the card back in. I am unable to install any of the nvidia drivers without it failing. I have tried the modded 368.25 and the 372.95 but no luck.

hey j95,

 

This is raidriar over from NBR. I've been using your modded drivers for a long time with 780M SLI and now I try with the 980M SLI. I have a very weird issue in windows 7 when using the latest drivers. Whenever I am doing light work (browsing, typing, navigating windows, etc), the driver freaks out and crashes randomly (black screen for 3 seconds, revert back, says nvidia kernel driver crashes). I reverted to the 353.00 throttle free driver, and the issue is gone. I've tried several drivers from the 36x.xx and 37x.xx branches, all give me this issue. Any ideas?

  Optimus model? Try switching to dedicated mode and install drivers using nv_dispi.inf for AW laptops.

Optimus model? You must fully disable iGPU (BIOS), if it still doesn't work then disable the sound card. RS1 messed up both Sandy & Ivy bridge laptops.

Delete the proper folders before installing drivers, also uncheck "Hardware Acceleration" for Chrome, Firefox & Thunderbird.

Yes it is Optimus. Windows 10 has been pissing me off and the latest update was the last straw. I went back to Windows 7. I got 359.12 installed but still had problems getting anything newer. I had missed disabling the integrated video in bios. Once I did that I got 372.90 installed no problem, Thanks J95.

I believe there is a new driver coming out soon for gears of war 4 and possibly Mafia 3 too.

It doesn't happen exclusively with Firefox, it also happens with simply using Windows Explorer, which I assume is also hardware accelerated graphics for aero effect...Will wait for the new drivers and see if I can come up with a workaround. Some more experimentation showed this is only an issue with SLI enabled. When SLI is disabled, this issue goes away. PhysX has no impact on it and neither does the HD audio driver. I would say power states trigger the issue, but I see it changing power states on 353.00 without issue. Aero hardware accelerated graphics and firefox hardware accelerated graphics work fine too on 353.00 without any modification

      Hello everyone! First of all sorry if this isn't the correct forum to post this.
      I bought a laptop few days ago. The laptop is Sager P150EM.
      Cpu:i7 3610qm 
      Gpu: amd hd 7970m
      Ram: 8gb
      Os: windows 8.1 pro
      So my problem is that everytime i install the amd driver after the intel driver my laptop freezes or gets a bsod or something that stops it from working. Any help would be appreciated. I saw somewhere something about vbios does this matter anywhere?

      Bios Release Version – v2.0.0
       

       
      Updated or Modded Items:
      A11 UNLOCKED BIOS FOR m18Xr2 (UNLOCKED BY SVL7 AND FULL CREDIT GOES TO HIM FOR UNLOCKING!)
      SVL7 Also created the PRR2.EXE tool that allows you to flash the new bios by unlocking it.  (FULL CREDIT GOES TO HIM FOR THAT FILE PRR2.EXE)
       
      Here are ALL the things I've added, modded, and enhanced on this bios -
      I've added FULL LEGACY SUPPORT ON THIS BIOS with ONE or TWO CARDS (SLI).  You can FINALLY use Win 7 OS on your machine and run the 900 series GPU's! 
      This is a MAJOR breakthrough!
       
      LEGACY SUPPORT Confirmed.  Works with 900 series GPu's in single OR SLI formation Updated the Intel RST Legacy to v12.9.0.2006 (Supports TRIM in RAID0 - CONFIRMED) Updated Intel RST UEFI to v12.9.0.2006 (Supports TRIM in RAID0 - CONFIRMED) Updated the ONBOARD Video Card for the HD3xxx to v2171 - FROM v2132 Updated ONBOARD Video Card for the HD4xxx to v2171 - FROM v2132 Updated the LAN Firmware & PXE Boot from 2.0.5.9 to v2.0.6.6 ADDED NvMe Support for m18xr2 ADDED M.2 support for m18xr2 Updated CPU Microcode to v29 for the 2900 CPU's Updated CPU Microcode to v1c for the 3900 CPU's Updated GOP Driver for Intel Sandy Bridge CPU Updated GOP Driver for Intel Ivy Bridge CPU Updated MAIN GOP Policy module for the m18xR2 Eliminated some code that wasn't used in the m18xR2 Updated CSM Module (v2) Streamline some coding to make mod(s) run a little more efficiently (v2) Added FPARTS.TXT to rar file in v2. (I had forgot to add it in v1) v2.5 to be released shortly.  I've updated a few more modules that I didn't realize could be updated.  (It's only 3 modules, but it's still an update!)   It should be released in about a week.  Hope this helps ya'll!  
      Instructions to flash:
      Use a flash drive to create a boot disk into dos Unzip ALL files into the root of the flash drive (flash.bat, r2final.bin, fpt.exe, flash.bat, prr2.exe, fparts.txt,m18r2.hdr, m18r2.hdr.bin, readmefirst.txt) BOOT INTO DOS – Note, that when you set the bios to legacy in order to boot into dos, you MAY have to reinstall OS!  (Just be prepared to reinstall no matter what) Once you boot into dos, run the file flash.bat It will unlock your bios (THANKS TO SVL7’s BIOS UNLOCKING TOOL – ALL CREDIT TO HIM FOR THIS TOOL!) Let it flash… Reboot your pc, and enjoy the MASSIVE updates!  
      Be on the lookout as I do plan to release newer version with more updates in the future.  However, it wont be for at least a few weeks as I'm now working on legacy support for the m17xR4 and several other systems.  So please be patient!
       
      ENJOY!

      NVIDIA 'Maxwell' VBIOS mods
       
       
      Here you find modified VBIOS versions for the mobile parts of the Nvidia 'Maxwell' series.
      The VBIOS versions in this post are tweaked for performance and versatility. You'll get almost complete control over the performance parameters of your GPU.
      List of available VBIOS mods:
       
      Nvidia GTX 970m - 'OC edition' rev0 - >> 6 GB Version << - modified by @johnksss & svl7 -> see attachments Nvidia GTX 980m - 'OC edition' rev0 - >> 8 GB Version << - modified by @johnksss & svl7 -> see attachments  
      Screenshot demonstrating the capabilities of the 970m versions:

      >> Read the instructions carefully before flashing! <<
      If anything is unclear after reading or if you have additional remarks, please post in the thread.
       
      Flashing:
       
      - Go to the device manager -> 'Display Adapters' -> chooser your GPU, right click on it and choose disable
      - Flash the VBIOS with mnvflash, a modified version of nvflash (see attachments). Here are detailed instructions for nvflash in case you aren't familiar with it.
      - After the flashing is done: Enable the GPU once again in the device manager.
      - Reboot
       
      Do NOT use driver 347.09, it's broken and useless and won't allow you to overclock, even with the stock firmware.
      Don't distribute the files hosted here outside of Tech|Inferno. Don't modify the files you download here.
