The 120Hz display requires a dedicated Nvidia GPU. It will not work on the integrated graphics. You will most likely get a beep code error 

Notice it HAS to be a Nvidia, Amd only work on 60hz.

Help needed! Hi everyone first all....

I've Dell M17xr4 since 2012:

I7 3840QM

Intel IVY Bridge

Nvidia GTX 675M

8GB RAM

PSU 330W

 

In 2015 I lost my screen display during a simple NVIDIA Driver upgrade and then using an IN/FAMOUS Nvidia tool (8 Beeps of death).  After one year I succeeded to build a cable and with an USB programmer I repaired my EDID LGD02DA Display; now everything is ok.

My laptop had installed windows 7 64bit Ultimate (I think it's not fully UEFI COMPLIANT OS).

Two days ago I've installed a second Internal HDD and tried Windows 10 Pro install in full UEFI.

 

I've flashed VBIOS for my GTX Dell 675m - 70.24.4E.00.10.zip (UEFI SUPPORT)

 

Installed Windows 10 with these Bios Settings

Load Legacy OPROM = Disabled

Secure Boot = Disabled
Fast Boot = Disabled

 

With Windows 10 Pro 64bit everything works perfectly I can use Internal and external HDMI Display (27" DELL) without issue I can switch from internal to external, extend display, turn Off second display (external HDMI) and keep internal display ON or I can turn OFF internal and use as primary display my external HDMI monitor.

 

Now I cannot do same things with Windows 7 64bit.

I.E.

If I try to disable internal display and I use my second monitor as first display it works but I cannot revert.... there's no way to turn ON internal display and turn off external.

This happens even if I use Intel 4000 and GTX 675M togheter  or Discrete only GPU GTX 675m

(While in Windows 10 I can Do everything)

 

There's only a way to do this  set BIOS:

Load Legacy OPROM = Enabled

 

(I've tried also a new fresh Windows 7 64bit Ultimate install with full UEFI) But I've same video issue.

 

Now I'm on latest A15 firmware and I've done step by step from a05 till latest always only STOCK Bios.

 

A modded A15 Bios can Help? Anyway it's better stay on a latest modded Bios with a system configuration likes mine? (I don't do anykind of overclock now I use my m17xr4 only as Sampler for musical Keyboard with an external AUDIO CARD.

 

Can I flash directly A015 modded Bios or I need to revert to official A05 then upgrade to latest modded?

 

P.S.

Sorry for long POST and thank you in advance Klem and everyone that can help me to understand what's happening and why.

I think vbios is ok and EDID internal display is ok. (ALSO HDMI IN it's working perfectly)

Yes, I already checked it. I put a 980m video card and a 120Hz display. They only work in UEFI. Now I'm looking for an unlocked BIOS for the video card, since there is a power restriction in the stock one.

Ok. As first step, flash original stock bios A14 version. Then if you want to unlock it, you need to prepare file bios backup from your laptop. 

For creating backup of bios use attached utility. Extract attached archive directly on the Desktop and run the backup tool as Administrator (right click mouse).  Utility 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.

ok thank you very much for info klem...

 

i got battery problem...

i cant flash bios right now because my battery is dead... :rofl:

at least it must have 10% for flashing bios with the dell update tool...

instantly ordered a new battery... every other method flashing bios without battery is to dangerous i think... dont want to brick my alien... :alien:

 

i would send you the backup results in a few days if this is ok for you? 

when the new battery has arrived and a14 bios is flashed...

      As it got pretty difficult for me to keep track of all the mod requests I decided to make a separate thread for bios / vbios modification requests. I hope it will make it easier for me to fulfill as many requests as possible.
      If you want to request a mod make sure you read through the following guidelines / rules, posts that do not comply with them will be deleted without further notice.
      Rules:
      You need to have a minimum of five approved posts (or 'T|I elite' status) in order to request a mod. Make sure I didn't already modify the corresponding bios / vbios. When posting a request you agree to flash and test the mod once it's done and post some feedback. (If you don't plan on using the mod then don't bother posting.) I only modify stock firmware. I don't work on anything that has already been tampered with.
      . For BIOS mods I need a link to an original BIOS update directly from the vendor (no mirror link) and most likely a dump of your BIOS (see instructions below).
      I only work on the latest BIOS versions unless there's a very specific reason for using an older one (in this case you need to specify so).
      In addition to this I need a dump of your BIOS as well as some additional information, read the "BIOS backup" section below, provide all the specified files.
      . For VBIOS mods I need a copy of your original vbios. (Only as attachment in a post here or per link to cloud storage such as dropbox, gdrive etc. per PM, filehosters are not accepted). No custom GPU clock requests unless it is for some reason not possible to overclock the corresponding system / GPU per software. No Windows activation mods. Check MDL for this kind of request. I can't guarantee that I will be able to fulfill a request.
      While I will try to keep it fair and consider the order of the requests at least up to a certain degree I will generally work on what I want and feel up to. Popular requests might be treated with higher priority.
      BIOS backup:
      For Intel 7 series chipsets run the attached flashChk tool from DOS and post the created flashchk.bin file (as attachment).
      Also grab this tool, run the backup.bat and send me created file. You will need to run it as administrator. If it reports and issue with the PCIe driver you have a crappy AV software and need to disable it temporarily.
      If you don't use Windows let me know and I will provide a different tool.
      For systems using the 8 series chipsets run the attached flashChk tool from DOS and post the created flashchk.bin file (as attachment) and wait for further instructions.
      - Thread under construction, more information will be added -
      flashChk.zip
      Fptw64_(8_series).zip
      Fpt_DOS_(8_series).zip

      In this thread you can post your requests for Lenovo Y50-70, Lenovo Y70-70, Lenovo Z50-70, Lenovo Z70-70, Lenovo G50-70, Lenovo G70-70.
      If someone wants upgrade Wi-Fi card and remove whitelist, or unlock hidden additional menus and settings in bios setup menu, or unlocked vbios for overclock NVIDIA card, then you can post your request in this thread. Also, if you have a problem with fan pulsating/clicking on any modified bios then you can post your request in this thread.
       
      The flashing procedure include two steps:
      1.  Flash main system bios.
      2.  Flash EC firmware.
