I have installed my 980M on myR2, Got the 8 Beeps, I thought with the A12 BIOS and Windows 10 it should have worked. Oh well, going to tear it back down and put the 675M's back in. Ijust got promoted and am downloading the A11 unlocked BIOS . So, Next teardown I am going to be completely ready. I just want to get this in and see if I can get it working before my return window passes. I have posted a few places here, and on Notebook Review on several threads about this stuff, and have received one response. Is this site still active? Do I need a modified driver still, all that stuff looks really old, 2013-2016 type stuff. I need to know about 2018. I have read that Nvidia added support for the maxwell in m18x r2. Am I wrong? Can someone offer advice? I have read that this thing should have been plug and play with windows 10 on Eurocom, Do I just need their driver? PLEASE HELP!!! Thank You!!!
Hi everyone, I'm having problems with my alienware m17xr4. was with windows 10, and after an update, the notebook could not boot. I tried it in several ways and managed to recover, however, whenever I enter a game, it turns off or hangs. I decided to format windows 7 of the factory. however, the problem continues. my video card is the factory default AMD HD 7970M (2GB), already tried to install the drivers and the pc does not work correctly. Can someone help me ?
And what would a video card that the Alienware m17xr4 easily accept? thank you!
Nvidia put the latest WHQL version of their driver online. A quick view at the release notes tells us that it's mostly targeted at Crysis 3, while including the several performance enhancements for other games which got introduced during the last couple of beta drivers.
Good news for all owners of a AMD GPU:
I've found a solution to run older games like Diablo II (directx, opengl), CC3 or Comanche 3 Gold (Voxel Engine) with a kind of antialiasing post process tool named RadeonPro version 188.8.131.52.
- To perfom this, add a new profile in RadeonPro linked to your specific game.exe.
- After that, activate the FXAA checkbox in Visual. => the "FXAA" option supports directx, opengl and even the voxel engine based games!
You can run your game, with the new feature, now! => RadeonPro has to be active all the time!!!
Dell put a new driver for the AMD 7970m on their support site.
