I have an MSI GT783R that is defective (turns off randomly) and now that I moved to US, I found out that it may be possible to repair/upgrade it.

Since I'm relatively new in DIYing laptops, I have couple questions that I believe someone here may be able to answer. Below:

 

- I noticed that this model is something related to MS-1761. What exactly is this? A type of notebook? A barebone (I think the word for this is barebook?)? A model that is similar to this one? Everytime I look for it I got motherboards, notebooks, bios all referring to this MS-1761. Can someone clarify this to me?

 

- I suspect the issue may be with the motherboard (long story: when I was playing DA2 in a external monitor, I closed the computer and put it in a location that ended up overheating it and it turned off. After this incident, the computer turns off randomly, even when not playing anything). Can I replace the motherboard with one from some other model (called MSI and they don't have a spare one anymore).

 

I have other questions but they are dependent on the answers of these two.

 

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Hello

Usually the error in the graphics card is the one that starts to cause short circuits.
Unfortunately not very many graphics cards work in this device.
Except for the GTX 770M, no card works from the GTX 670MX to the GTX 880M.
But the GTX 970M and GTX 980M as well as the Quadro M3000M-M5000M work there.
Prerequisite is that the card has an MSI Vbios.
MS-1761 is just the internal name of MSI for the motherboard, this has been installed by many other manufacturers.
And for all cards except the GTX 570M -GTX 675M another heat sink is needed.
Or your own needs to be adjusted.

Thanks, Bloetschkopf. Now, I'm considering my options, either to repair this computer, or to buy a new one. Right now, these are the specs:

 

 Processor: i7 2670QM
 Mainboard: MS-1761
 Bios: AMI E1761MS V3.0H
 Memory: 12 GB DDR3 1333
 Videocard: GTX 580M (from MSI / GF114, A1)
 Wireless: Centrino Wireless-N 130

 

Some additional questions, if you can help me:

 

- Before investing some money in it, I'd like to confirm that the issue is indeed in the video card and not in the motherboard. I'm asking that because, if I remember well, this computer switches between nvidia and intel graphics card depending on the application, and it turns off even when using MS-Word, for example, with the intel card. If I take the nvidia video card out, would the computer still work using only the intel graphics card? This way I could know for sure if the problem is in the video card and not in the motherboard.

 

- In addition the the upgrades in the video card, can other specs be upgraded as well? For example, I believe this motherboard supports higher frequency than 1333 RAM. Could the processor and Wireless card be replaces as well?

 

- Assuming the problem is in the motherboard, can I just replace it for a similar one? I'm asking that because in this site (http://www.super-laptop-parts.com/index.php?main_page=advanced_search_result&search_in_description=1&keyword=ms-1761&inc_subcat=0&sort=20a&page=4) there are many similar motherboards but I'm not sure if they will fit the laptop case. The OFFICIAL part number of my motherboard is 607-17611-07S, but I can't found this exact model. Will any MS-17611 board fit in the notebook?

 

- When you say I need a video card with MSI Vbios, does it means I have to look for a compatible videocard from MSI or can the bios be flashed in other brands?

 

Again, thank you.

The MS-1761 don`t have Optimus,it starts with blank Screen witout GPU.

Take the GPU out,when  the Laptop starts the GPU is defective.

You can change all Components,the Wifi Card is under the Touch Panel.

If You want change only the Card it must be a Card with MSI or Clevo Vbios,for Dell Card You need another Laptop to flash the Vbios.

You can use also upgrade to this Cards:

 

GTX 770M(another Heatsink)

GTX 970M/980M (another Heatsink)

Quadro M3000M-M5000M (Heatsink like GTX980M)

All other Keplercards from GTX670MX to GTX880M are not working in Your Barebone,only GTX 770M and GTX 765M/GTX965M with Clevo Vbios.

      Hello all! I have been researching upgrade paths for my M17x R4 and I have decided on the GTX 1060. Now, I was given this laptop with a dead GPU, and I had an M17x R3 already. So I moved the GTX 560m into the R4 which has worked fine. Now as I understand it a few things are needed for this upgrade including the 120hz panel and the ability to disable the legacy ROM for a pure UEFI boot. I have the 120hz screen, but the 560m uses the GF116 architecture which does not have a vBIOS which supports GOP. So I am thinking the only solution is to buy a cheaper "in-between" card which supports both boot modes, which will allow me to disable the legacy option in setup. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what cheap card to buy as a transitional part? I have been considering a 765m but I am also wondering if there are any other good choices.

      hello everyone, I have a MSI GT683R with a dying (pretty much dead actually) GTX560M in it.
       
      I am looking to upgrade it to a new GPU, I have found a AMD Firepro M6100. (I first wanted to upgrade to a GTX970M, but that's too expensive for now... and corona is also making things difficult) I have already ordered a second heatsink to modify because I didn't want to modify the original heatsink it came with.
       
      But, my question is. Does it even work in this system? I have heard of people getting it to work in the barebone variant of this system. But I am not sure if it would work in the 'fully loaded' variant.
       
      Also, my games are mostly RAM/CPU dependent and I am looking for a little extra power in this system. I have found a I7-2860qm and I want to upgrade to 32GB of RAM, is it possible on this system? the sticker says 'max. 16GB of RAM' But I have feeling it says that due to the limitation of the cpu that's already on this system (I7-2630QM, 16GB RAM max.)

      I reversed the input polarity on my m15x jack after a botched psu repair. Computer worked fine, but overall power control is messed up. System only boot on both battery and psu, no battery charge, and a very low battery drain (arround 6wh).
       
      I aways had battery issues whith my 8 years old m15x after my original battery died. Bought a new one two years ago, didn't work. Checked on upower, basically no info on manufacturer, power or history. So i refunded and used the system hooked on the psu as usual. In August i bought a new one, worked flawlessly for a day. The next day the battery died from nowere. Checked upower, bus was ok, battery was charging extremely slowly (6wh), history showed subpar disharge before shutting down. I got mad at this point, decided that psu was to blame. Opened it, checked everything, noticed some wear on the male jack. Resoldered it, connected on computer. Nothing happened, so i checked the voltage. That's when i realised that i screwed up big time. I swaped the positive and negative wires. Decided that one mistake was enough, so i sent my m15x to a trusted repair shop (latter found that they just hooked the battery and gave me back as soon as it booted, they didnt even open it). Got my pc a week later, but the battery didn't charge . Worse, it was slowly discharging (same 6wh as before), and it needed both the psu and the battery to turn on. At 65%, it worked as usual for my college semester, but the battery is dead, and so is my computer. I bellieve i burned some voltage controller or something. I'm pretty competent at soldering thing's (evem smd components) when i know what to do, and i can understand simple circuit's, but when i got my hands on the m15x datasheet i got overblown. I cant make heads or tails about it. I aways lurked this forum and i bellieve your guys are the best when it comes to finding creative solutions to technical problems concerning microelectronics. I followed a guide in this forum as a teenager to upgrade this same computer to a gtx680m, overclocked stuff, got custom bios, and had a lot of fun learning. The m15x is a deprecated platform, but it's a part of my history that i dont want to let go.
      So please guys, help me.

      Hello,
       
      I am new on this forum, so I am sorry if posting at the wrong place. It's been 2 weeks that I am searching how to make my GTX 980M 8GB working Inside my Alienware 17 R1 (June 2014, i7 4710MQ, 60 Herts Display, OPTIMUS and the GTX 880M Inside died.)
      After "quickly" looking some forums, I saw that a 980M would easily fit Inside … but maybe I was wrong.
       
      Hardware wasn't a problem. I've also could install drivers by modding the nvdmi or nvcvi. inf files. The card was recognied BUT :
      the clock speed is locked a 135 or 405 Mherts and fan is not runing when booted up.
      I tried to flash vBios with nvflash and some ROM I found on vBios collection … but no way to get this working properly.
       
      So, i'm coming here. I've seen many people talking about Prema or svl7 or other big boss in the place … but ? how ? where ? when ?
       
      Inside the peripherial manager I have this in remote acces path : PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1617&SUBSYS_05AA1028&REV_A1\4&D590A51&0&0008
      So I assume my GTX 980M card ID is 1617 and vendor and PC Model are 05AA 1028.
      But near the "Standard Microsoft Video Card" there is a yellow exclamation point and Inside details it says "this peripherial doesn't work properly" when no Nvidia drivers installed.
      I could find some vBios with 1617 (Asus) but black screen at boot up. Since laptop model where not the same .. probably.
      And I wasn't able to find 1617 with the existing 05AA 1028 … as the GTX 980M was not an option for my model. (AW 17 R1 2014 ,60Herts)
      I tried 353.60, 382.33 and 419.35 drivers. The latest one seems easier to install but longer.
       
      BIOS is A16 from Dell. And I am using Windows 10. Got a Dell 330W brick. 
       
      I saw a guy with the exact model as me, he gets a modded vBios especially for his configuration, then everything worked easily … but can't find the topic again
       
      I guess depending on the card info and the laptop model … a dedicated vBios is required … 
       
      So, If anyone here got some informations or any kind of help for me, it would be very nice.
       
      Thanks for reading and help.  
       
      PS: there are a lot of files, pictures and links that I can't see on this forum .. even after registration ….

      Hello everyone,, I need your expertise, I have a m17 r4, (2012) unlocked A15 bios thanks to Klem, it has a Gtx 675m in it now, 
      I would like to know the best GPU to upgrade to without losing a lot of the factory functions of the alienware laptop, like being able to use both VGA functions such as intel 4000, and the factory bios for the cooling of the GPU, I don't want to solely rely on the nvidia
      As a full dedicated GPU, let me know what VGA card to get and what vbios to use, I will gladly donate beer to you for your help, or point me to a member on this forum who can help me,
      Thanks, Shelby,  Aka captcavy
