I'm sorry for making another thread just for this but I really wanted to pick your brains on this!
I have an m15x with a 770m running windows 7 and everything works. Rock. Solid. I'm pretty happy with it. Since windows 7 is on it's way out, I would like to upgrade to windows 10. Now I've looked into it before and had a really hard time getting the 770m to behave nicely and had all these issues with green/yellow/pink screens and I remember it being a miracle I got it to work on 7 as good as it does.
My question is how well does the 970m install vs the 770m - particularly on windows 10? I would buy it in a heartbeat if it makes the install less tedious with the colored screens and all that. Especially if all the functions work on it! I have been searching the internet and I cannot find nearly as many problems with the 970m as I could with the 770m, or am I just not looking in the right places?
Thanks a million!
Hello. I'm currently running windows 10 on bios version 1.00 and want to upgrade to 1.03 but cannot boot Ms dos flash in uefi. There is no option to enable Legacy mode and the option to disable uefi in bios is greed out. When I try booting from flash in bios, it shows black screen and returns back to bios screen. My rig is a p157sm. Any help will be appreciated as I'm looking to install prema bios mod.
My M18XR2 was working on Windows 10 with a 880M.
Last week, I reinstalled my system, and I couldn't get nvidia driver working...
I took the last installed modified driver, and even downloaded latest version, modified it again, nothing to do, I have same error : nvidia installation failed.
I only install the graphic driver too, it fail. The screen goes black, then light again, and it fail...
Do someone have an idea how to fix this probleme ?
Hi all. I was wondering if anyone had ever figured out if windows 10 will work with the GTX 770m on the M15x (bios A09). I've found a few forum posts about it and they all end up off topic. Ive tried a few different driver versions but every single one ends up green/pink/white screening when I enable the IDT sound device in device manager and through driver setup. It is stable if I don't have the device enabled. Anyone have any advice?

First of all, good sides:
Solid construction, soft touch martial all over the case, no glossy parts.
Sound is really loud, even basses exists here, though I can’t say its best of the best.
Outstanding performance, take a look at this data https://goo.gl/oyF9dl, almost all games run over 60 fps in 1080 and over 30 fps in 4k. Take a look a several gameplay videos that I’ve captures on this beast, all of them were captured in 4k resolution, on ultra settings with no AA:
Rise of Tomb Raider - https://youtu.be/rNRMnytsC2c
The Witcher 3 - https://youtu.be/dJicr6we0z0
Quantum Break - https://youtu.be/PNofDssIgS4
(1080 with max AA) Crysis 3 - https://youtu.be/H1ja_BhD0-Q
Resident Evil 7 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LiF-zhTwNDE
Battlefield 1 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ypOEnJ9KbKs
Dishonored 2 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jhtvj4BkiMc
Only in Ghost Recon Wildlands I had less then 30 fps https://youtu.be/lbeW9PZvsUo
And bad sides:
Thought laptop is 15inch, its bulky as hell, thank god it looks okay, not like some previous gaming crap lappys: http://www.notebookcheck.net/uploads/tx_nbc2/toshiba_qosmio_x305_q725_01.jpg
Screen has some ghosting, previous static images can stay on screen for some time. Not this laptop, but image illustrates the issue: https://goo.gl/H42OCJ
Some laptops has overheating issue on CPU. Though in rarely influence on performance, its still sad thing to have in such big laptop. Issue described in this thread: https://goo.gl/KjNNBN, simple CPU repasting solves the issue: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DVEpuZNWLxw
Stepback in turms of battery life since g-sync laptops doesn’t support nvidia optimus. Around 4-5 hours of work.
