BAKED BIOS FOR KM, DM, P6, P4 SERIES with most menus and options unlocked. I've also added stock BIOS for these models which you'll find in the download section.
These BIOSes are somewhat beta versions and are only for advanced users who know what they are doing, new versions will be released later.
WARNING!! DON'T USE IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING!!
Don't change any options if unsure what they do, enabling some unsupported options or flashing the wrong BIOS for your model might brick your system i.e. break it. Use these BIOS mods at your own risk, I take no responsibility for bricked systems, be careful!
DISCLAIMER: FLASH AT YOUR OWN RISK! BIOS FLASHING MIGHT BE RISKY, THEREFORE IN ORDER TO AVOID FAILURE ONLY FLASH IN DOS AND NEVER TURN OF THE PC UNTIL FLASHING IS DONE AND MAKE SURE THE BATTERY AND AC-ADAPTER ARE CONNECTED TO AVOID POWER FAILURE WHICH MIGHT BRICK YOUR COMPUTER.

I am an M17X R4 owner running WIN10 AND currently upgrading my laptop from an 7970m to a 970m.
I have already successfully transferred my 970m to the motherboard and windows has detected the the gpu in device manager, optimus mode is enabled and the intel graphics are also detected.
The laptop is currenlty booting in full UEFI mode and running bios A11 stock.
Currently I am experiencing issues with getting the 970m to run, my Intel graphics keep running only but i can see the 970m is installed and the settings can be changed from the nvidia control panel and can be benchmarked using FurMark.
I managed to modify an nvidia driver using the device hardware ID's (not sure if that is the issue) but i think the main reason why the 970m is being used is because i require an unlocked Bios to change which GPU it runs on?
Everything up until this point has been an interesting learning curve and i feel i have almost cracked it.
what do you all think, any advice would be much appreciated by myself and my laptop
Im no expert on the matter but if anyone wants any advice from my experiences above i would be happy to help the best i can. Thx
Hi guys first time posting here.
I'm hoping for a little help. I have a m17xr4 quite a few years old now which has gone through a couple of GTX675m's now.
So recently I purchased a GTX680m from ebay and after installing I am getting a blank screen, with no back lighting or signs of life.Fans/Lights run and I hear windows start fine, but I'm unable to switch to internal graphics after pressing the Fn F7. If I hit enter I hear an error menu so something pops a new window up.
If i remove the GTX680m it displays fine with its internal hd4000 graphics. I have been speaking to the seller and found that the card is from the M17xr4 120hz wide FHD 3D. My model only has the 60hz screen but I didn't think this was a concern. With the card fitted the GTX680m warms up a little.
I removed the Nvidia drivers before installation through the control panel. I have tried Blind flashing the vbios with a stock bios sent from the original owner and also one from techpowerup with no change. I used nvflash v5.14.1 Dos version, I get 1 chime when I press 'y' 20 seconds in and get another chime 20 seconds later so I feel it has flashed but cant be 100% certain as I cant see.
Any help is greatly appreciated. Many thanks.

Hello Guys! I recently got subscribed into this Forum,
My name is EDY and I live in MEXICO, Close to USA Border...
I am an enthusiastic gamer, and also PC Technician, I like to get custom rigs to play games.
Lately I have been playing with 15 Inch Computers, my three last computers were 15 Inch. I am very conservative and somehow afraid to buy something it does not accomplish on my will.
My current rig is a CLEVO P750DM2-G: 1080p 120hz 5ms Screen, i7700K (OC to 4.6Ghz, GTX 1070 8GB (OC to 1800-1900mhz Core Speed), 32GB Kingston HyperX 2400Mhz RAM, and 500GB M.2 SSD from Samsung, so as X400 SSD 500GB and firecuda 1000GB HDD. ((MY TEMPS when gaming are: CPU 78c-83c and GPU 78c-80c, I delidded CPU and also applied CLU on heatsink for both))
I am willing to try a 17 Inch Computer for gaming, but my concerns are thermals, noise and portability, since I also use my Laptop at work like 8-10 Hours daily (light tasks as productivity).
(I am looking for P870KM1 Clevo Laptop as an Option since it has Desktop Processor, and from most of the 17 Inch Monsters this looks to be one of the most powerful ones, I am not interested on SLI GPUS at all).
My main goal is to get single GTX1080, but that I can get it also from EUROCOM TORNADO F5 with a great set of tweaks (including unlocked BIOS), so ending with this long chat, What is better Guys? Keep with the 15" Laptops or give the step to the 17" Ones??
Hope to have some recommendations, and thanks to all.
