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

Recommended Posts

http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/15859939?

Finally I installed this driver (375.70) and the fire strike even lower than before. 

Wanna know what I missed.

Gaming is Fine, and temperature has dropped down, the only problem is I don't see any performence improvement.

and I already flashed prema's v2.

Quote

In the case of Nvidia, Telemetry gets installed alongside the driver package. While you may -- and should -- customize the installation of the Nvidia driver so that only the bits that you require are installed, there is no option to disable the Telemetry components from being installed. These do get installed even if you only install the graphics driver itself in the custom installation dialog.

 

 

@J95

 

At first they got with GFE 3.x and now they are being packed with the sole driver package as well.

Sigh !! first Windows10 and now nGreedia as well...

@Prema clevo 980M v2 vbios.

Thanks, i just didnt want to install before being sure since it says Clevo and not Alienware. :)

 

FYI: I have problems with black screen and Audio/game continue in background, but i have to make a hard reset to get the screen to turn on again, what can be causing this?

Check your temps & check this thread at NBR too.

would your recommend the same bios for the 970m, have same laptop alienware 17x r4 running 3842qm processor

 

https://biosmods.wordpress.com/gtx9/ 

 

Use Either of them and to Flash use the Premamod zip and copypasta or have a look at those commands from the batch files and flash them by going to Devicemngr and disabling them and after flash enable them, No need for the BIOS Legacy Flashing, Maxwell can be flashed from the Windows.

Wrong file, G-SYNC GPU ID 1617 GPU-Z screenshot above (980M-G)  https://biosmods.wordpress.com/gtx9-g/

 

It shouldn't matter DM or ZM for AW, but better ask @Prema anyway.

For 60Hz


First get Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 installed under full UEFI, make sure you have AW OSD to switch Optimus / PEG modes.
Second flash a vBIOS from Device mngr in optimus mode, Prema mod v2.0 / svl7

 

How to flash ? -

Disable the GPU from Devicemngr after booting to the Optimus mode & follow these steps below...

 

1 - As I've said, see the zip and go through readme, there should be a bat file called modme.bat copy the commands from it, and rename the vBIOS to the same one in the cmd or issue the command wr.to the name of the vBIOS you set this depends on you, Run the command from Admin privileges cmd  (Modme.bat, wont execute depending on your OS and file permissions so best way is to run it manually)

 

Third switch to PEG mode, get an INF mod (PEG INF only), preferably from this thread (Need to disable driver sign verification. Install this driver in PEG mode)

 

 

For 120Hz

I presume, No need to use the IGFX switch, Just go to the Devicemngr and disable the card, then flash and reboot and then Install the INF modded driver from this thread, J95 always !

 

 

Also make sure to use DDU to uninstall properly, I use this everytime when I need to update or rollback or clean OS installations.

 

I'll also leave this here for all the Alienware 17 Owners who want to upgrade to a Maxwell GPU, Also this post too as a safety precaution for the MSI-AB and EVGA PX for all LVDS machines (60Hz)

 

Also check NBR for these similar threads (375.86 & 375.76 ) to get most out of your GPU without any perf loss.

 

For now stable one seems to be 373.06,  I personally use 369.05 for now since I don't have newer games than DOOM but the BF1, Mirrors Edge Catalyst might need new Drivers like the 375.76..\

 

Hope this clears out, Best of Luck.

Yep, added two months ago.

 

I won't pay 1.2K that's for sure, cutting out the middleman.

      Dear modders,
       
      Hope you all are doing well. I wished to ask if someone could guide me for flashing a vbios to the GTX 970M 6GB for to be installed on the MSI GT-683 laptop (with modded GTX 560M heatsink). I need to know how to get a display to be able to flash (also, flash with what software?) if the gtx 970m is of clevo (is the IGPU supposed to work? do i need an unlocked laptop bios?) I intend to buy this GTX 970M : https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000264805962.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.0.0.62d77e93DGQl5O&algo_pvid=bccc80d9-9944-4dc3-a1e6-ef3d45bda0e3&algo_expid=bccc80d9-9944-4dc3-a1e6-ef3d45bda0e3-5&btsid=12b502b9-dbe1-4c35-be48-930446a31235&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_3,searchweb201603_53

      Hello Everyone,

      I am trying my Sager NP 9377 to get to work but to no avail. NO POST, NO DISPLAY.
      in short>> powering on laptop causes fans to run at full speed after 10(cpu only) + 10 (now both cpu+gpu) with Caps Lock + Num Lock + Scroll Lock LEDs blinking, continuous 1 second beep, repeats for one minute with 1 second in between, then laptop shuts down.

      IN DETAIL
      System Specs are i7 4810mq 8gb gtx 880m SLI variant (though my laptop has other GPU Slot empty so only singular 880m running) 120 Hz display.

      The Problem
      > if i take out the battery and plug in AC only, the power light comes on ORANGE
      if both battery is connected, then i have both power and battery light ORANGE
      and if only battery is connected then of course laptop is waiting for me to press the power button
      but in all 3 cases the following happens
      > Pressing the power button brings laptop to some signs of life, power LED turns green, both the CPU and GPU fans have a very quick jerk but does not spin., keyboard lights up with Blue Backlight (dont know if this is relevant or not), HDD activity light starts to blink showing HDD access maybe (even when hdd is removed)
      > Display remains blank (i dont even sense the display backlight being on)
      > HDD activity light sometimes goes off after only 1-2 seconds, sometimes shows rapid blinking/activity for 4-5 seconds
      > both fans remain off (i removed back cover to check this)
      > after about 10 seconds or so, the CPU fan spins up (speed is normal, just like when using the laptop in IDLE)
      > after 10 more seconds have passed, the CPU fan seems to be turning off for a split second then both the CPU and GPU fan turn on full speed with a lot of noise.
      > Caps Lock, Num Lock and Scroll Lock LEDs all blink together with single beep for about 1 second, repeats beep with 1 second in between.
      > goes on for about 1 minute then laptop shuts down.
      > forcing the fans to spin down using FN+1 key makes them spin back up to full speed after a split second (dont even know why i tried this one -_-)

      What I Have Tried So Far
      > EC and Bios Reset (take out battery, disconnect AC Adapter, disconnect CMOS Battery, Press Power Button for upto 30 seconds)
      > Change Ram and check all available slots
      change/remove HDD
      > Repaste CPU/GPU and clean out fans
      > Checked GPU...... Flashed the 880m in this Sager with MSI vBios and tested it in a MSI Gt70 2PC i have, gpu ran fine, tested with FurMark, AC Odessey, Ghost Recon Wildlands for over an hour (unfortunately the cooling in my MSI is not good enough it already runs hot, and this 880m causes thermal throttling as well as power limit throttling sometimes). Reflash 880m with original Clevo vBios and put back into the Sager, still no boot, same results as before.
      > Checked the CPU..........checked the 4810mq in the MSI GT 70 which worked fine, as well as tried the 4810mq from the MSI in the Sager, still no boot.
      > Suspected bad GPU fan connection......therefore forced both fans to full speed as soon as i press power button (using FN+1 Keys) and both fans turn on full speed, same results.
      > tried charging the battery to the max before turning on on battery only, same results.

      >>------- The laptop has had some random shutdowns in the past too during gaming but would turn back on fine after waiting for 10 mins or so, then i sold it to some guy who brought it back to me the next day saying that it just turned off during gaming and wont turn back on, i returned his money, did all the troubleshooting above to no avail. then i finally put it aside to wait until i get some other system in which i can test the CPU and GPU.
      Then one day i turned it on (after leaving it untouched for a couple months), same results as above, i decided to try once without battery and it Freakin Turned ON!!!, used it for a couple days without battery, played a few games (thermal throttling was observed here and there), but then this happened again and this time it seems permanent . And now i have not only repeated all the steps above but this time also checked the CPU and GPU in the MSI GT70 too. ------------<<


      Some Observations
      > touching the CPU heat pipes feels warm, but the GPU heat pipes are colder (GPU never even booted?). dont know if this is normal or not.
      > i replaced one of the capacitors near the CPU once, but i did use the laptop for quite a while after that without any issues.
      > my Idle temps were always below 40c for both CPU and GPU, so an overheat warning as soon as laptop is powered on seems unlikely (false overheat warning?, but GPU does not even seem to be detected/ booted as heat pipes remain cold to touch), also i repasted the CPU and GPU multiple times.
      > The guy who sold me the laptop told me that the power adapter was originally a Dell, and it was modified to use with this Sager by replacing the cable with a 4-Pin one from a Toshiba (same pinout as the Sager), but then again i have used this laptop for quite a while on the same adapter.
      > From day 1 of having this laptop, some keys on the keyboard (w, s, t, c and numpad 4) did not work 99% of the time. pressing really hard on any one of them sometimes made ALL of them work for a while. any thoughts on this issue?? (even if its unrelated).

      So what seems to be the issue here?
      GPU not detected ?, False temperature alert?, Bad fan?.
      Any help towards resolving this will be greatly appreciated.
      Thanks in advance .

      I recently purchased a replacement 980M (Clevo model) for my P770DM-G after the original died, however, after installing the card the laptop doesn't boot. I only get a black screen, and after a couple minutes the fans spin to max before shutting down, which is the same thing that happens when I try to boot it without any gpu at all. I've tried the reset procedure, unplugging, removing battery, and removing CMOS, to no avail. It does beep before shutting down (I counted 22 times exactly). Anyone have any insight as to what the problem is?
