Do you still need Prema vBios with this driver? Prema website doesn't seem to work. Anybody know how to get a copy?

 Driver works just fine in any Alienware machine with GTX 980M installed, no modding needed again.

it seems that all Nvidia drivers from now on will compatible  with "980M/Alienware", modding time is over guys:cupcake:

Yeah and what about 880M and Alienware M18xR1? Im pretty sure it still needs the mod. By the way we are modding desktop drivers, not notebook.

 

Waiting for someone to mod 388.

Humm, you're right I tested it in my M18XR1 with 780M and it didn't work, so we still need mods for 780 and 880M GPUs.

Btw J95 sometimes used notebook version driver to do mods too( aka drver 382.19). I dont see any significant changes in my 3DMark results between notebook and desktop drivers so I use whatever is available.

Ah, didn't know. I thought he always used desktop ones.

 

Im using 382.19 right now :D

 

I tested M18xR1 and still does not work without mod. Ehh stupid Nvidia could just add compatibility INF like they did with 980M.

Hope this is the right thread, but I am seeking for help. I have a Dell M6700 with a GTX970m - when modding INF files I always go for the "nvdmi.inf" one and learned that I need to trick the driver to think my laptop is an Alienware. Got some driver issues now and I'm looking for someone to help mi specify which sections of the INF need to be modded and how - how do you know which sections apply to your machines (it might be easier with Alienwares than it is with a Dell Presicion)?

 

Now that I've browsed through the latest posts here I am somehow confused - was I supposed to mod DESKTOP drivers all that time? Cause I've been doing that with mobile ones for the past couple of months...

Sorry I didn't see your reply. Im not online here often.

 

  • Download new stock drivers and unpack it.
  • Download old stock drivers and unpack it
  • Download modified INF file for your clevo for old drivers from this thread
  • Use something like WinMerge to see differences between these old stock INF files and modified INF for your laptop
  • You will now see which parts are required for your card to be supported
  • Make same changes in new stock drivers INF file and install it.

Hey guys would anybody be able to do a modded 385.69 (or latest stable ones) inf for a gtx 880m win 7 64bit?

So far I get the gist of the inf. File modification. Anyone here have direct experience with the Dell M6800 and install a 970/980 and what exactly I need to alter to software wise to get it to accept the card fully.

This thread is still going decently strong. 

 

I haven't tried the 390.xx drivers yet. 

 

Last drive I was using I think is 388.xx but I did find issues on occasion, but I think it was windows update related, seems there was as few hotfixes and updates that would reset these drivers again , even AFTER the creative update.

@J95 if your still on here or around or anyone else who can help me, I have a alienware m18xr2 with a gtx980m recently installed I have the as unlocked bis and running the driver 345.20 by Mr fox. And I can't seem to get any other drivers to work at all. I'd like to update them. Do I require premas vbios? Where can I get them? I'm at a loss here I've tried everything I can find to update/mod drivers and every time it installs I get a black screen that flashes blocks of bad colour's like a broken screen but if I revert to 345.20 everything works fine again. Some help would be greatly appreciated if more info is required let me know. Also I'm using Windows 7 with the unlocked bios

I modified another driver, if anyone wants it Im sharing.

 

390.77 - Added compatibility for M18xR1 - GTX 880M. I used section for M18xR2 so there shouldn't be any issues.

 

@NODice You require newer vBIOS as I remember.

The attached files tell you what you need to do to mod the two files for PEG/ Dedicated, get into the practice as there is nobody consistently doing .inf mods here anymore.

I have modded 391.01 following those instructions successfully however I hold no responsibility if it doesn't work on your machine as I've not checked for compatibility beyond my own, but let us know if it goes fine.

The instructions were created from older modded files using the method @Ezio21 suggested. So thank you @Ezio21.

 

Please note you still need to follow the whole string of instructions for installing modded drivers as previously outlined by @J95
But in short:

0) Make sure you have a copy of your last working driver ready to reinstall if anything goes wrong.

 

1) Download driver "XXX.XX-notebook-win10-64bit-international-whql" and unzip using your preferred compression software.

2) Make a copy of the nv_dispi.inf and nvdmi.inf from Display.Driver into a folder for modding them. Make a backup of the originals too.

3) Follow attached instructions to modify those files.

4) Replace the two files within Display.Driver

5) Delete all folders other than: 373.06.PNG

6) Restart (Shift + Restart on Win10) in safe mode.

7) Use DDU to uninstall old driver in full

8) Restart (Shift + Restart on Win10) and Disable Driver Signature Enforcement.

9) Install from setup.exe

10) Hope that you did everything right.

 

Once again the attached instructions worked for me. Hopefully they work for you.

Thank you dearly for this comprehensive response, much appreciated!!

 

By the way, I am using Windows 7, 64bit. So I understand I would have to d ownload driver "XXX.XX-notebook-win7-64bit-international-whql" , but otherwise same instructions right?

 

I will try this now. cheers

That would be correct. Also disabling driver signing is an F8 on boot thing. Good luck

      alienware 15 r2 970m with i7-6700hq vbios request so i can overclock and mess with voltage.

      Hi there guys,
       
      I've been looking into getting a new GPU for my laptop (4-lane PCI-e) and enclosure (HP Omen Enclosure) but I cannot decided between the RX 5700 XT and the RTX 2070 (non SUPER).
       
      I did some price to performance calculations (higher is better) with some of the best prices I can currently get in the UK.
       

       
      The RX 5700 XT does perform better and is cheaper than the RTX 2070 (Although the 2070 does come with 2 games) but my main concern is drivers and from what I've heard NVIDIA cards work a lot better with eGPUs than AMD.
       
      If anyone has experience using both red & green or if anyone else has any other input i'd love to hear your experiences and input.
       
      Thanks.

      Hi guys, I am the proud owner of a Clevo p775dm3-g notebook purchased from azom.systems (authorized Clevo reseller in India, Model rebranded as Azom Legion-17.3 inches). Here are my specs:

      Core i7 7700 (non-K version): undervolted by 110 mv and turbo boost disabled in BIOS- machine uses prema mod BIOS.
      GTX 1080: undervolted by 100 mv on all frequency steps using MSI afterburner voltage/frequency curve editor. clocks are untouched.
      16 GB DDR4: Cant remember clocks.
      1440p 120 Hz screen: No tinkering done to refresh rate.

      CPU has been delidded and repaste has been done on both CPU/GPU dies with gallium based TIM-Coolaboratory liquid ultra if I recall correctly.

      My issue is GPU hitting max temp limit of 90 degrees while playing DOOM and framerate drops from 110 avg to mid 60s-70s with horrible stuttering- this is thermal throttling for sure.

      System was running beautifully after repaste at 86 degrees max/ 77 degrees average at 100 percent fan speed. A month later I decided to see how much further I could push the system and ended up undervolting the CPU/GPU and RAM even further. The RAM undervolting part didnt work as well as I'd hoped, and I ended up resetting the BIOS to undo everything and reapply the previous setting (-110 for CPU with turbo boost disabled.) 

      I noticed that immediately after BIOS reset, both my CPU and GPU temps were 5-10 degrees higher even with the undervolt/underclock applied. Also, I think the fans were a bit louder before I reset the BIOS which leads me to believe that for some reason the fans are now capped at 80% max fan speed. There doesnt seem to be a fan speed selector in the BIOS or anywhere else so I cant say for sure whether this is a fan related issue or something else.Before the reset I could override the BIOS setting and set the fans to 100% by pressing fn+1, could I have done something to that setting after resetting the BIOS ? I dont think I have damaged the CPU or GPU as temps are holding fairly steady at 90-91 degrees and laptop doesn't shut down while gaming.

      If I have overlooked something or if anyone reading this has any solution help would be greatly appreciated.
      All settings/drivers/windows version/app version are exactly the same before and after BIOS reset.

      Hello everyone,
      some time by now I flashed a custom Vbios (thank you Klem) on an Acer Predator 15 G9-591 and I started doing some tests about how far I could go overclocking the gtx 970m without running too hot. With the voltage up to 1150mV and something like 300 additional MHz for the core clock, in the strongest stress condition for both Gpu and Cpu ( i7-6700hq undervolted), the Gpu reaches a max temp of 85C (with some 86 spikes but never more than that).
      Considering that soon I'm going to relid both Cpu and Gpu and clean everything in the internals (laptop is 4 years old) I think I'm going to have some additional heatroom.
      I've already tested some further overclocking and I noticed that even if the temperatures remains under 93C (which is just for testing purposes, but after relidding temps could be nicer) graphical glitches occur and after some time most games crash. But my question is, could it be because of lack of power supply? The laptop charger provides 180W 
      Could there be an increase in overclock margins with a 230W psu or something like that? (Obviously with the same 19.5V output)
      If anybody tried something like that on any laptop model, or knows the matter, I'd like to know
