Hello,

For any of you ...which of the drivers are best in general for the 970M? I am struggling to get it to work. I mean driver during the Windows installation works (the one that Windows picks automatically) the only issue I have with them is that OPTIMUS does not work completely. Nothing wants to use the 970m despite profiles set to use high performance card...

But whenever I try to install other once it comes as unsupported hardware (used Mr Fox modded once and passed the hardware check and started installation but 5sec in Fails to do so-pic enclosed; did the DSE disabling as well if any one wondering, also windows 10, full UEFI, fresh install of windows)

The device ID is as per picture

Also when I have used the Fn+F7 (or F5 dont rem now) to swap to dedicated after reboot got nothing and few beeps pointing to gfx and only CMOS battery removal revives the machine.

Is there a version of unlocked bios that will alow to disable Intel GPU and to install thos darn drivers?

Hmm... newest drivers seems to have decreased stability for me in the Witcher 3. Game crashes 5-10 minutes at stock clocks and I actually have to underclock core by about 50-100 to avoid crashes. Curious, the Witcher 3 is notorious for being extremely sensitive to even slightly modified clocks (even when similarly demanding games and benchmarks like Heaven are completely rid of artifacts much less crashing) but I've never had this issue before with old drivers and certainly not at stock settings.

Are you having these issues with these specific modded drivers or just a standard install of 378.92?

Just a standard install (with the modded inf files of course) with stock vbios, clocks, and everything else. I've been wondering, could this be a hardware issue? I've been pushing my card pretty hard recently with Ghost Recon Wildlands and Mass Effect Andromeda and Andromeda especially ran pretty hot at around 78-81 degrees for me. Could there have been damage done to the card?

Hi J95,

 

I've been using your drivers for single 980M in the M18x R2 without issue. However, I recently added a second 980M, and now when I enable SLI, I get driver crash every 5-10 seconds and the computer is really unusable. Goes away when I disable SLI. No reported problems in device manager or dell ePSA test

@technos Stock clocks?  GPU temps? stock vBIOS? ASIC quality?  Windows version?

 

Try reseating the card a few times if necessary and verify the SLI cable/connector.

 

Please post GPU-Z screenshots (IDs)  980M: 13D7  & 1617 G-SYNC.

      I have a iBuypower CZ-17 laptop, with a 2012 AMI BIOS that has E1762 as the version, which I believe means I have an MSI G70 motherboard. It has a 675MX GPU, but it's not useable in Windows 10 despite being "seen" in the device manager. I believe an updated, unlocked BIOS would fix my issue and have located the thread on this site with the BIOS I need.

      First of all, am I right? Will this fresh BIOS make my laptop that originally ran Windows 8 work with this old GPU?

      And second, I created this account, will wait 24 hours and made this post. Is that enough to allow me to download the file, or do I need to post elsewhere?

      Thanks!

      Title sums it up.
       
      TL;DR: we have a Clevo that runs a desktop CPU, one with those huge 82 Wh batteries. We remove the GPU and let it use the CPU's integrated graphics. How much time for the battery to go from 100 to 0? Is it comparable to an ultrabook's?
       
      I'm theorizing a mobile set with a static eGPU and an upgradable CPU. Given a hypothetical user that needs fast processing on the go and long battery life while retaining very high degrees of mobility, but at home wants a powerful machine to run most games, I guess that would be their best bet. It would surely be more convenient to keep everything in the same disk. And even though the thing would be quite heavy to carry around, changing CPU would be more cost-efficient than changing an entire laptop. (Not sure if I'm right here, and also I'm not sure whether the motherboard in a Clevo would be replaceable when the new CPU needs a different socket, which is another reason why I'm asking here.)
       
      If my above guesses aren't correct, then an ultrabook with Thunderbolt and without a dedicated GPU would be a better choice. If they are, then we would be carrying more weight in exchange of a more cost-efficient setup, which I think would be a fair tradeoff.
       
      Also I am aware of the heating problems that these laptops suffer from, at least compared to a desktop setup. Would they be solved by moving the GPU out of the chassis, and instead plugging it with an eGPU dock via Thunderbolt port?
       
      What do you think? Is it doable? If not, why?
    • By Binarious
      I installed an NVIDIA Quadro P4000 Max-Q in a Clevo P750DM-G.
       
      Device manager hardware ID shows:
      PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1BB7&SUBSYS_75021558&REV_A1
       
      I have done the standard inf file mod, then disabled driver enforcement as I have done successfully in the past, but it's not working this time. The install starts, then fails less than half way through. I have tried the DCH version, standard version, and studio versions and none of them will work. I am probably missing something. Could it be the result of the vBIOS?

      So I just recently bought a used ORIGIN PC EON17-X. with CLEVO P775DM-G in it. I wanted to know if its possible to upgrade it with CLEVO P775TM1-G so I can have something like an RTX series in it. I wonder if its possible? Clevoparts does sale CLEVO P775TM1-G. Any expert can help? and what kind of things i would have to consider before following such a plan, what kind of hurdles? Any help is really appreciated.
    • By Hax
      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
       
      Thanks for your time.
