Hello everyone. I have some trouble with my M17x R4 with 'unknown AC adapter' - i'm sure part of us ran into this (i have original Dell AC 180W). Many of forums told me it's because discrete GTX 660M or really wrong AC. The problem is temporary - when i insert my AC into laptop, it can recognize AC as original 50/50. My question is: can BIOS modification set every AC as allowable for the laptop?

 

Thank you.

 

UPDATE: I solved the problem by bying geniune 240W AC Adapter.

Big thanks to svl7 for A11 BIOS Mod! I've tweaked fan power. Do we have some hotkey for FullFan mode (like in Clevo laptops)?

If someone wants unlocked bios A12 or A13, A14 then you can download and install original stock bios A12 or A13 or A14  from manufacturer website, then create file backup of your bios.

For creating backup of bios use attached program. Extract attached archive directly on the Desktop and run the program as Administrator (right click mouse). Program will create archive "results" directly on the Desktop. Send me this archive "results" via PM or or upload it to any fileserver and post the link.

Has anyone sent you the latest BIOS for modding?

 

Edit: sorry for the crass userId. Had towing incident today and not in the mood. If a kind mod could alter it, I would appreciate. Perhaps Ducking? (instead of the ban I probably deserve)

Hey Klem! Really appreciate you doing this for everybody. Just running the programme now and will PM the info.

Does anyone know if any of the updated M17x R4 BIOSs (A12, A13, A14) have the ability to choose to boot using the PEG (in this case, a 970M), or do we still have to use unlocked ones to get them to work? If you do need unlocked ones, will my 970M work with an unlocked A14?

      I fiddled around with modding my laptops BIOS to unlock XMP profiles and hopefully seeing if optimus could be disabled. After flashing my modded bios and trying it out, I noticed that my keyboards backlight no longer turns on. I was unaware it requires an official BIOS to function. They backlights wont turn on unless ASUS ATK package is installed but now it seems it also needs an official BIOS?
       
      The modded ROM and tool I used if anyone has any experience with this and doesn't mind telling me what to enable/disable, or anything else i can do to re-enable them

      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:

      or

      In case you need vbios for GTX 780m:
