Is any option to clear Cmoc settings in unlocked A11 bios on M17r4? I turned off internal graphic adapter and now have only "beeps" at start.

Hi!

You can reset the settings very simply. If you temporarily remove all your RAM sticks, and instead of them temporarily insert one another RAM stick (with different RAM size, or from different manufacturer).

It works but I have one more question -how to setup options in bios to disable/awoid this intel graphic. I just want to open games and the rest using nvidia, but now all is opening with intel one. Even if Ill use fn+f7 keys it shows only gf780M but games working terrible...

Downgraded from A13 to A11 to use your bios. no access so making a few posts.

does the download link for [FPT]-M17x_R4_BIOS_A11_-_[unlocked]V2.zip work for anyone else?

From what I understand, you are unable to access download links due to being pre-promotion status. From what I’ve read after a week your account will be reviewed and upgraded if not deemed not spam. I’m in a similar boat as you as I cannot access downloads yet either. Someone please correct me if I’m wrong.

I was also trying to access the latest unlocked BIOS but cannot access this at present, help?

 

I think my 7970m died, 7 beeps after reboot, but if I let it cool enough days without turning on, it will actually boot up to Windows, so I wanted to reset to BIOS to default and downgrade from a13 to unlocked a11 v2. Eurocom apparently has the A12 unlocked described on their page.

 

I am hoping after I do this, I can order the 980m, I also have the 60Hz screen and I read that is a requirements that the BIOS is unlocked, but some other people telling differently.

You don't need the unlocked bios for the 980m because it works fine with the 60hz screen. Only if you're upgrading to a gtx 1060/170 it's wise to get the unlocked bios.

 

Also according to the DELL page 7 beeps means an issue with the cpu, but since cpu's hardly die I think your motherboard might be dead, try taking the cpu out and put it back in to see what it does.

Hi all. I ordered a 980m, installed and in win10, it shows the 980m in device manager. However, even after modding the driver inf, and installing the driver, i am getting code 43 error and the card does not work. Am I missing some steps? (i am on A11 stock BIOS BTW).

 

Thanks

      Hi all.
      I'm trying to update my ASUS G73SW laptop with a new GPU card. 
      Originally it comes with the great GTX 460m, which still nowadays runs AAA games (OpenGL 4.5 and DX11, medium and high settings, 1600x900 resolution).
      I own a GTX 780m DELL card bought 6 years ago with the intention of doing the upgrade, however circumstances of life made me to concentrate only in work (IT) and the project was forgotten.
      Now I'm taking back the project again. That's why I come here for help.
      Is it possible someone of you could help me in modding the attached BIOS (info extracted with BIOS Backup Tools 12.2) to support the GTX 780m DELL card?
      Links with result.rar from BIOS Backup Tools 12.2:
      https://www.sendspace.com/file/15om7i
      or
      https://www39.zippyshare.com/v/HlOxLCUg/file.html
       
      In case you need vbios for GTX 780m:

      Thanks in advance!
