Ok, thanks. I did try finding the registry tweaks and tried them too, none of them fixed the problem. The registry fix that was mentioned in most places is the below one:

"Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Class\{4d36e968-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318}\0000Next, go find:MD_EnableBrightnesslf2

KMD_EnableBrightnessInterface2

Set both to 0. Reboot."

MD_EnableBrightnesslf2 key was not there by default, so I added it myself. It should actually be KMD instead of MD. I have tried both, by the way.

I was quite hopeful that this would solve the problem, but unfortunately it didn't. If you have any suggestions, please let me know.

Control center and brightness works with older AMD drivers on the P7XXZM with 8970M, I'm not sure which driver versions tho as I don't use it. The brightness can be changed in catalyst control center.

I am using driver 13.12 at the moment. I have tried the latest drivers and a driver version older to 13.12 as well. If you happen to recall the driver version you are referring to, kindly let me know.

By the way, Control Center (Hotkey) utility crashes every time I open it mainly due to the display brightness problem as it gives an error about brightness.dll. At least I would want to use the other functionalities of the Control Center. Do you have any suggestions to make the utility run?

AMD Catalyst Control Center changes brightness and contrast at software level apparently. Even when I set the contrast to 0 in CCC, I can still feel the glare because the backlight is just too strong. Also, the image quality goes down.

Dear Prema, is there any chance we'll see a custom bios for the N150RD (Eurocom Shark 5) at some point?

I'm asking because i've noticed that the bios has some very conservative throttling settings regarding the CPU when the GPU is in use(the CPU current limit all of a sudden is lowered to like 10A). Power draw at the wall has never gone over 105Watts at any point, and all the temperatures are very good so it's sad to see the CPU thottling down even below the base clock when there is no reason to from a hardware point of view. Apart from that I suppose all those other tasty customisation modifications you do wouldn't hurt either :)

Wouldn't at all mind making a donation for such a bios:)

I recently flashed my Bios in order to get the gtx980m working in my laptop.

Now, shortly after booting, fans will blow with full power, and the num, caps, and scroll lock lights keep flashing including the beep sound of a critical battery. After 12 times, the computer shuts down.

After flashing, I didn't disconnect the PSU for about 30 sec (didn't see that in the readme).

Prema wrote in another thread to the same problem, that reflashing the mod will reset the EC and may help. But my fear is, that it will shutdown before flashing is finished and this way brick my notebook.

How long will it take and could it be that this emergency shutdown is disabled while flashing?

I hope for a quick response as my notebook is unusuable right now and I need it for work.

Hi Prema

I just update my Clevo P170EM with your firmware K1 EDITION Prema Mod v2 or and now my AMS7970M 1.2v that have the 1.1v bios stuck in BSOD,

I currently have a clevo w350stq. The fan jumping to full on and then staying that way was very annoying, especially in work environments as it forced me to suspend my laptop to get it to shut up. So HUGE thanks for putting out a bios that isn't so crazy about the HD getting a little hot. You saved me, seriously. Now I'm looking to buy the https://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/notebooks/lafiteII/ and it appears to have the same problem. A shitty fan profile which means the fan doens't come on slowely, just jumps from off to full on all the time. Now I was wondering, is there any chance you're going to put out a similar fix. Or maybe I could even try myself? I use Arch Linux and happen to know quite a bit about laptops. BIOS modding is another level of course, that's why I'm asking.

Thanks again for the bios I'm using on my current laptop! ~AlexTes.

Hello guys, first of all thanks to Prema for your help. I just flashed this bios P6xxSE_39_310_PM_v2 on my laptop, model Z7M-i78172D1, with a motherboard p65_p67sa.

Actually looks that everything works fine, but in Windows 10 I can't see and select my nVidia GTX965m. There is an option in the BIOS to activate?

Thanks in advance, Bride

Hello all :D

 

I have some noob general questions before I go ahead with my first ever bios update. Please if any of you can help me with these: 

1. Do you have to leave the battery attached as well, not only the PSU?

2. If so, then when it says "disconnect the PSU for 30 seconds" at the end of the process, do you also have to take the battery out and then put it back in? 

3. What mode do you have to select in Rufus when creating the bootable stick? MS-Dos or FreeDos?

4. I disabled Intel Anti Theft technology but I don't know how to disable UEFI. I am inclined to think that my motherboard doesn't support it or something. Is that a mandatory step? to disable it I mean

5. Does it matter if you use an USB 2.0 or 3.0 port when you boot from the flash drive? 

 

I appreciate any responses before I build up the courage to go ahead with the update :D I know, I know, I'm a pu$$*

I bought a Avell Titanium G1746 V3X Fire that is a Clevo P671RG-G. As I saw on Prema Mod website, there is no P6XXRE firmwares for it, just P6XXSG and P6XXSE models.

Since mine uses a different chipset (HM170), different processor (Skylake 6820HK), I assume that the SG/SE versions will brick my device.

Considering so, is there any way I can help? I have software / hardware rev. engineering skills (not bottom to the BIOS level, but I already did driver level hacks).

 

Avell is one of my "Prema Mod Partner Team" Shops, write them a mail and ask them for the BIOS, that way you will get it sooner (once its ready) than the regular "public version".

It may help to reset the CMOS battery (below the keyboard): 

 

1. Unplug the PSU (Power Supply Unit/ AC Adapter)

2. Remove the Battery

3. Remove the small CMOS Battery cable for about 30 seconds

@Prema

Do you know how to hardware mod a 980M into 980M-G?

 

You will have to physically change two resistor on the MXM board...more than that I can't tell you...but if you check some posts done by Clyde you'll get a better picture.

The BIOS or EC don't touch anything regarding AMD, you may turn your attention towards the AMD driver...

Well the P6xxSE (GTX970M) BIOS is NOT for P6xxSA (GTX965M)...I haven't made a Mod for it either...sorry.

1: Yes (it works without if don't have a battery, but it's not really advised to flash without battery)

2: No leave the battery in. This step is only to "reset the EC Firmware"

3: MS-DOS, but if you have W10 then free-dos (as MS stopped including the required DOS files) 

4: Its in the "boot" section options. If you don't disable it you can't boot from Legacy USB

5: USB 2.0 is preferred, but both work

Hello Prema.

 

Is there a new BIOS for the Clevo P771DM-G that improves the long boot times that I get with this unit. I posted a video bellow to show just how long it takes from when I press the power button till the "Style Note" logo comes on.

Hi Prema! =)

 

1) You have some info about rework GTX 980M(MSI) to G-SYNC version? I looked Clyde messages and dont find this...

2) I have MSI GT72 6QE at GTX980M 4GB (84.04.48.00.2A). You can make Bios for me?

 

P.S. Sorry my bad Eng!

I've fixed it for the Mod, not sure if a stock BIOS has it fixed, too.

You can't do that with a vBIOS, you need to change the hardware...like here:

Thanks. I know about hw mod and find this post, but i dont find resistor combinations for 980M rework. Maybe, just as on g-sync version.

 

vBIOS: Sorry, i mean vbios for my 980M, not for crossflash to g-sync =)

Stay shy of 361.43 driver, different systems seem to have experience problems with it:

 

 

Better stay with 359.06 for the time being...the 361.43 crashes the system after the first true reboot (not W10 resume from standby standard).

      Hello guys,
      I have a GT72VR 6RE with G-sync MSI Laptop. Sadly the GPU is partially dead (artefacts all over the screen, crashes, windows detecting a damaged hardware etc...).

      So I bought an other GTX1070 MXM on ebay, which was used in a Vortex G65 6RE before.
      Sadly, when I plug the new GPU in the laptop, the laptop screen stays completly off, but i can use the HDMI port. So i though that I would just have to flash the vbios to the one I was using on the GPU that died, but I couldn't because of a mismatch betwen the PCI Device ID.
      The new GPU ID is : 10DE 1BA1 - 1462 11AF and the previous GPU ID was :10DE 1BE1 - 1462 11AF
      Pretty close right? but the A1 and E1 variation are fcking everything up. I've read that 1BA1 is for non G-sync and 1BE1 is for G-sync. I've also read that the G-sync variation is not part of the card but is an external part no on the GPU board.

      So now I'm wondering what can I do : is there a way to force the vbios flash or to change the PCI ID ? I really need some help here. I'm no expert and I've try as much as I could. Maybe I need to do some vbios editing but I don't really know how to do it and what to do exactly to make this work.

      Thank you very much for your help guys
