Hi,
 
I have a Clevo P170EM with an AMD 7970M.
 
Last year I tried to change the vBIOS of my 7970M, a friend of my tried to change it because he wanted to ''overlock'' the card. He said no worries I said okay do it, then later on he returned my laptop and bricked both my card and the normal BIOS. I had to repair the laptop trough a repair company in the city. They only could repair the BIOS by doing another BIOS on it. They said to try everything with the card but my laptop wouldn't accept it.
 
The problem:
 
After the Windows 10 installation I installed all the drivers from the manufacters site (http://www.eurocom.com/ec/drivers(226)ec). Including the SSD driver, then I FIRST installed and fully updated the Intel HD Graphics. After that I installed the AMD videocard drivers (crimsons edition), the weird part is, AMD autodetect sees my card and so does Windows. Then the driver ask me to restart my laptop, after restarting the Windows logo appears then the screen goes black with a blinking cursor left upper screen.
 
I believe it has someting to do with the vBIOS of the card and I also believe that the card is not bricked but just wrong BIOS.
 
 
I asked the manufacter and they say that the card may be bricked, when I ask for the BIOS they would not provide it for free (bastards). I asked for both the motherboard and AMD card BIOS, they said I have to pay for it.
 
Question:
 
Can someone provide information and files for the right vBIOS? I mean the vBIOS that is standard.
 
Greetz,
 
Jamie
 
P.s I have some pictures and screenshot of Windows and the BIOS detecting the graphic card, the weird thing is both OS and BIOS detect the card but when I install the drivers it goes black
 
P.s.s I already tried everything AMD support provided so I have no use for comments like ''Try unistall with DDU'' or try with second monitor etc.
 
 
As you can see I've disabled the card because when I enable, Windows freezes and screen goes black.

I'm sorry to hear your situation.

Not to be cruel, but your friend is bit of a jerk first fucking up the vbios and the accual bios without first do a backup!

 

Anyway I have a clevo myself but not the 7970m.

But the first thing I will recommend you to do, is install a modded bios from a guy called prema.

https://biosmods.wordpress.com/p170em/

 

This makes your clevo perform much better and there will be a change you 7970m will start cooperate. 

 

The next thing you can do is disconnect the internet and run DDU again.

The install this old native driver from clevo for the amd 7970m.

Remember to run the installation as windows 8.

If this did not help, contact Prema, he has the correct vbios for you. Both the original and modded version.

Consider donating a little bit for his help. He is an expert in clevo.

I've fixed it for Windows 7. Just bought a new card also the 7970M  and that card works like a charm. On windows 7. I dual Boot with Windows 10 but can't get the card to work.

 

In Windows 10 I have to disable internet connection because otherwise my laptop completely freeze after a minute because Win10 won't stop auto downloading drivers.

 

When I've installed all the drivers for the laptop and finally install the driver for my card it freezes at "Installing AMD Display Driver"

 

This happens like evertime. My laptop locks up when I try to install the amd driver.

 

Someone mentioned the premamod bios. I've already tried that with the old card but it didn't did anything special. Maybe I can flash it again because I've a working card now. Someone said I need a newer BIOS to have Win10 functional properly. Is that true? I'm now on my stock BIOS.

The AMD driver is it from AMDs website or clevo? Because I have tried both with 7970m and 8970m that you can't install the newest amd driver directly. You need the old one from clevo and then update to the newest.

 

About bios and windows 10, I have only tried the newest prema bios with windows 10 and this works like a champ.

On windows 7 I've just the driver from the AMD website. On Windows 10 I tried that also but it didn't work.

You say that first installing the old driver works?

      Hello everyone, it is 2020 and i've been looking literally EVERYWHERE for a modded vBios for an Asus G751jy (980m 4gb) to unlock voltage control above 25mV, can someone help me?
      I've seen people have been linking the mod so here's mine, latest 213

      Hi,
      In this thread you can post your requests for AMD-V unlock on ACER E5-553G and same laptops with AMD CPU's, for example Acer Aspire E15, Acer Aspire E5-523G, Acer Aspire E1-522, Acer Aspire E1-420, Acer Aspire E5-421, Acer Aspire V5-123, and etc.
       
      Now we can unlock  AMD-V function for virtualization support. In general, this method described in the article on this link: http://www.geektech.co.nz/how-to-unlock-...enovo-y700
      This way requires Windows as a system because  some tool works only in Windows.
       
      Download this tool: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4NHIBM...RtQXM/view
      Extract the archive H2OUVE.rar directly on the Desktop and copy the H2OUVE folder directly on the disk C:\
      Then run the Command prompt as Administrator and execute these commands:
      cd  \
       
      cd  H2OUVE
       
      H2OUVE.exe   -gv   vars.txt

      After each command press the Enter button.
      After that, you'll have the file "vars.txt" in H2OUVE folder.
      Post here this file "vars.txt" or upload it to any fileserver and  send me the link.

      For reference, here's the EFI-table with available settings for this notebook: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B4NHIB...WI4LW14bE0
      And here's the setting that needs to be changed:
      0x1C40B             Setting: SVM support, Variable: 0xEE {05 91 54 02 55 02 54 00 34 12 EE 00 00 10 00 01 00}
      0x1C41C                 Option: Disabled, Value: 0x0 (default) {09 07 27 00 10 00 00}
      0x1C423                 Option: Enabled, Value: 0x1 {09 07 28 00 00 00 01}
