MSI GT783R (MS-17611) - Alternative MoBo:

Recommended Posts

Hi again guys,

 

I have one of those GT783R that disappeared from market very quickly, and one that is probably a lemon. I've tried to replace the processor and the video card so far and the computer still turns off after 3 or 4 minutes. In fact, it's strange because the BIOS shows GT780 instead of GT783R. My guess now is that I have to replace the motherboard.

 

However, I can't find a spare motherboard for GT783R. I know it's a MS-17611 motherboard, so can I just buy a MS-17611 motherboard or does it have to have other specs to be compatible?

Also, I noticed that there is a ver 1.0 and ver 1.1. Is there a difference between them?

 

Anyone willing to help me? Please?????

 

Best,

Amid

If you are going to change out the motherboard with a more recent one, I think the max you can do is the MS-17631 motherboard. I am using a MS-17621 1.0 motherboard, and I found that if I plug in the 2nd hdd connector that is, example: MS-17611 or ms-16f2 or ms-16f3 hdd connector, the motherboard will not turn on at all (the circuit on the hdd connector daughterboard is slightly different circuit for the motherboard to understand).  So if you do upgrade the motherboard to a MS-17621 1.0 or 1.1 for example, you have to buy the hdd connector of the same series that start with MS-1762(x) like:

MS-1762A which is the HDD Connector.  This HDD connector is the bottom most daughter board that sits right under the palmrest.

MS-1762C which is the HDD Connector next to the MXM video graphics card, I use this one for my main Samsung SSD EVO 850 500GB.  This connector can be swapped for the RAID card.
MS-1762D is the touchpad and click connector and the front 5 LED status lights.

MS-1762E is the USB 2.0 Connector
MS-1762F is the SATA DVD-RW/BluRay extender. This part is compatible across all of the motherboards, since it only extends the SATA Circuit.

 

So basically if you do change the motherboard, to a more newer generation, but keeping that chassis, it would be more practical and money saving way to pretty much replace that board with the same exact version you see printed on the board. 1.0 or 1.1.

 

MS-17631 board you can keep: Videocard heatsink or upgrade heatsink with the card. Keep the CPU cooler pipe, and SATA extender for DVD writer.  But you will have to drill into the rear chassis to accommodate the display port connector, since that is the one different from your current board and MS-17621.

 

I also learned the hard way of buying a 2.0/2.1 board for my GT70, which originally has the 1.0 board.  When I got the 2.0 board, the Boot up logo showed up MEDION instead, and the CPU cooler did not support the fan as I originally thought it would.  The CPU would go to 90C and the fan still stayed the same quiet speed.  I got rid of the board since my components did not match that board, which was a whitebook board.  So yes, version does matter, and don't try to up a version from 1.0/1.1 to 2.0/2.1, you will waste money and time.

Every Bios shows GT780 because this is the Basic Barebone.

The Failure is normaly not the Motherboard,it is the GPU.

It have a beginning Shortcut which shut the Notebook ramdomly of under Load.

This is a big Problem from GTX 460M to GTX 675M.

      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!

      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 Fellow Tech Gurus!

      I am having a huge headache after upgrading the ram memory of my m17x r3. 

      First let me start by saying I have been experiencing issues with my current ram setup recently, and so i decided to replace the ram inside of my computer, thinking they had gone out on me. It originally came with x4 2gb memory sticks, and as I started to experience issue, I started to removed them, and I was down to 1 2gb stick. It seems to me ram slots 1 & 2 are not working properly as when I put ram memory into them I would get BSOD in 5-10 mins of computer usage after boot. So I am thinking the slots have gone out. I also tested each slot individually and still same effect.

      So I went on the try out slots 3 & 4 under the keyboard, which seems to work just fine when I use only 1 ram chip in one or the other. But the problem occurs when I try and fill both ram slots in slots 3 & 4 under the keyboard with crucial 2x 8 gb of ram sticks, which total to 16gb total ram memory.

      BSOD and freezing occurs like crazy. But if I use just one of the ram sticks in either slot, no problem.

      I dunno if this is hardware or software. I am think that my motherboard is on its way out the door, but any suggestions you all have would be great. I have already clean installed win 7, and is currently running bios A10 (unlocked, I believe)

      I would also like to note that my motherboards internal vga is not detected, and just noticed this a few days ago upon trying to figure out the ram situation.

      other issues is my laptop battery is pretty much dead, and the only for my computer to cut on is if the AC adapter is connected

      I would also like to know can 1x 16gb 1600 ram stick run in my computer? or is it not supported by my motherboard? 

      thanks!

      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.
