Is there a newer version of this vBIOS? It seems that Clevo has 019, while this is 017. I'm asking since it doesn't deal well with my 8740w - fan stuck at full (unless manual fan control), no sleep. Thanks.

Hello everyone!

I have a big problem :-(

I bought AMD 7970m from Clevo p370em. This card have stock Clevo vbios for working on p370em on crossfire.

Whem I installed it on my Clevo p170em, after power on, notebook fan speed is full and shuting down after few beep.

Card is normal recognise in bios but I dont have much time to flashing new bios for this 7970m.

What I suppose to do? What is problem? How I can reflashing bios on this card before notebook shutdown? I'm don't have p370em

ps Sorry for my English

Has anyone tried using a DELL 7970m on an Asus g73jh (HM chipset) successfully? If yes, will the stock vbios work/POST?

Yesterday I tried to overclock the 7970 m , received 1000/1500 / 1,075V , however 20 minutes later the core temperature up to 81C and GPU lowered the frequency to the level 300/450 . If not the cooling can achieve better results :)

It is difficult to get atiflash to work with enduro systems. atiwinflash will work consistently as long as you force the card to stay on.

What do you mean exactly by force the card to stay on?

Hi svl7 could you check out my 7970m bios and see is it the same? I see it had a different BIOS number and it also adjusts voltage depending on the load.

Note I only had to do -p to flash.

Is it possible to get the overvolted version with ability to adjust voltage on lower clocks.

Hey Khenglish, how did you do it when you flashed your GPU? Atiflash or Atiwinflash?

I have the same setup as you but i`m still not sure what vbios file to use even after spending days researching about it on 150EM systems:(

Any assurance from you would give me agreen light for flashing my 7970m vbios:)

Best regards guys!

Hey There,

I see this thread has been going on for a while now. I am looking to buy two Dell 7970m cards (hopefully not very abused). How can I find out more about the version of each card. The way I read this thread is that version 22 is not flashable. Is that correct?

Thanks in advance.

Hey guys!

My 7970m version is 015.024.

Does that mean i can`t use these vbios files at all or someone has done it and can give me their bios file for flashing?:)

Would very much appreciate it!

Hi I was hoping to get some insight on an issue I have with my dell 7970m install in a m17x r2 that I believe is a vbios issue. My card is running but I'm only getting video output on vga and hdmi. My rgb led screen on my laptop stays black. I popped in my old 4870 and the screen turns on. I have a 15.022 card. Any help would be appreciated.

Where do you find the version number on the card? I remember a comment about "version 22" not being flashable. Is this in all rigs or just Dell products?

Hi,

I have a 7970m v1.1 card, where can I get serial flash memory chip with 8 pins to upgrade card to v1.2 (this is possible right?)

Thanks in advance

I had a 7970m-CF setup previously and I think I found the version number either in GPU-Z or when looking inside the vBIOS of it.

Hello Svl7!

First off, I've been following all the great work recently on the 980M bios, congratz on that!

I have acquired a 7970m from a Clevo seller, I guess he tried to flash his card and it probably bricked it.

I have at my disposal:

- Alienware 18 with 2x 780M

- Alienware M18x r2 with 2x 7970m

- Alienware M18x r1 with 1x 7970m

- 2x Alienware M17x r2(5870m and 580m)

Can you tell me what to try to see if the card is really bricked?

If it is, can I send it to you for fixing it?

Thank you

      ok, so, i have a serious problem atm.
      im trying to mod my bios so that i can go past the normal overclocking limit. however, everytime i try to do it, it always says "file size does not match existing bios size!", and it's really annoying, since i had to find everything myself, as no one else online tried this on my specific model, besides me. (which surprises me, really)
      this is the guide im following:
      So this is my detailed description how I managed to mod and overclock my GTX 960M in my Lenovo Y50-70. Please note: it is very dangerous to play with the BIOS, so you need to be very careful! I take NO RESPONSIBILITY for any damage or misuse of the information below! Use it AT YOUR OWN RISK!
       
      -------
       

      Necessary tools:
      A. Fptw64 from Intel (9.5 or above)
      http://forum.hwbot.org/showthread.php?t=75024
      B. PhoenixTool (2.50 or above)
      C. Maxwell II BIOS Tweaker (1.36)
      https://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/2562/maxwell-ii-bios-tweaker-v1-36/
       
      -------------------------
       
      How to flash Modded BIOS:
      0. Flash the latest (3.03 now) official BIOS
      1. From Windows, start 'cmd' as Administrator and read your your BIOS via Fptw64:
         Fptw64 -d BIOS.ROM -bios
      2. Reboot, enter your BIOS and check "Enable downgrading BIOS" feature (we need to downgrade first in order to flash the modded BIOS)
      3. From Windows, downgrade to 1.13 (this is necessary because the newer BIOSes have protection against mod-ding)
      4. After reboot & reflash, start Windows, then enter standby, wait a bit, then wake up the machine
      5. Create your modded BIOS, see separate list below
      6. Start 'cmd' as Administrator and write your _modded_ BIOS via Fptw64:
         Fptw64 -f BIOS_MODDED.ROM -bios
       
      -------------------------
       
      How to create modded BIOS (point 5 above):
      5.1 Start PhoenixTool.exe from Phoenix Tool 2.50 and open your previously saved original BIOS.ROM from point #1 above
       .2 The tool analyses it and shows some messages, click OK
       .3 Now you can find your vBIOS in the "DUMP" subfolder in the folder containing your BIOS.ROM, with the file name:
          BE13645B-2C2C-44D2-A64F-0EA052C34597_1796.ROM
       .4 Create your modded vBIOS, see separate list below -> let's call it 960M_OC.MOD
       .5 Click on "Structure"
       .6 Open "EFI BIOS" tag
       .7 Open second "File Volume {7A9354D9-...}" tag
       .8 DXE Core -> Compressed Section -> Raw section -> File Volume {7A9354D9-...}
       .9 In the very long list, find the following tag (usually displayed at around 80% of the list):
          Freeform {BE13645B-2C2C-44D2-A64F-0EA052C34597}
          This is the item containing the latest vBIOS
       .10 Open the tag, then "GUID defined section", then click on Raw section. "Internal number" (in the top right corner) should be 1796 for BIOS 3.03.
       .11 Click on "Replace" and select your modded vBIOS (called 960M_OC.MOD above)
       .12 Click exit "Exit" and say Yes to "Save changes?"
       .13 Close the Phoenix Tool; now you should have your BIOS.ROM updated (the original will be saved as BIOS.ROM.OLD for safety)
       
      -------------------------
       
      How to create modded vBIOS (point 5.4 above):
      Use Maxwell II BIOS Tweaker to change BE13645B-2C2C-44D2-A64F-0EA052C34597_1796.ROM;
      5.4.1 Open the ROM
         .2 Change "Boost Clock" on "Common" tab to the new boost-ed maximum value
         .3 On "Boost table" tab, use the slider in the right bottom corner to increase your max boost-ed value to the same number
         .4 On "Boost states" tab, at P00 profile, change the MAX values in the GPC, L2C and XBAR fields to the same max boost-ed value
         .5 Save your modified BIOS and rename it to 960M_OC.MOD
       
      (My boost-ed max value was 1359 MHz. I could then use MSI Afterburner's software tuning -> my 960M could reach 1454 MHz without voltage increase.)
      i know that it's for a different laptop, but its basically the same
      ill provide more info when im home

      Hello,
      does anyone know, which is the chip holding the VBIOS-ROM on an AMD Pro-WX 7100?
       
      I've two AMD Pro WX 7100 which doesn't work. One has maybe a wrong VBIOS and gets deativated in BIOS before any system boots. The other one is not recognized by the MB so I suspect this one to be defective and un-soldered two chips, which I suspect to be the VBIOS-ROM:
       

       
      On earlier GPUs, the VBIOS was the chip closer to the GPU. But here, this chip has a bottom SMD contact which looks more like some power electronics...
      So before I start soldering on the probably working GPU - can you tell me, which actually is the VBIOS?

      Thanks.
