[BIOS/vBIOS - MODS] Prema Mod™ & Stock

Recommended Posts

First of all, Thank you Prema for your great support and effort,

I have upgraded my P375SM gpu card from GTX780M card to GTX980M and I already have Prema BIOS 1.03.03 v2 since the day it was released, now after the upgrade the bios cannot recognize the 980m card it shows unknown; therefore, I have to hook another monitor in hdmi cable to access the bios and /or go to safe mode.

 

How can I solve this problem? Should I flash with GTX980M_8GB_MXM_OC_PM_v2? However, windows 10 can identify the card just fine in devise manager with the latest NVidia driver.

System (p375sm) specs:

  • Intel® Core™ i7-4930MX Processor Extreme Edition

  • 8GB NVidia GeForce GTX 980M DDR5

  • 2x Kingston Technology HyperX Impact 16GB Kit 1600MHz DDR3L CL9

  • 2x Samsung 850 EVO - 1TB - mSATA Internal SSD in raid0

  • 2x Samsung 850 PRO - 2TB - 2.5-Inch SATA III Internal SSD

  • Thumbs Up 1

Ok, I just flashed prema vbios  mod GTX980M_8GB_MXM_OC_PM_v2, it seems like the temperature dropped but the main problem still exist, the bios didn't identify the card and remains unknown.

please let me know how to fix this it's really important as i use this laptop for work. thanks

The BIOS reading the card as unknown means nothing. It will work anyway.

It means everything to me, I can't go into safe mode or access bios unless I have another monitor,this is not practical for business specially i am always on the move.

I apologize for missing the actual problem in an earlier post. It is completely normal that when using a card that came out after a system was released that the system will not recognize it. This is to be completely expected. The card not displaying the BIOS on the internal display is unrelated to the BIOS reading the card as "unknown".

 

So the internal display does turn on when you get to windows when the Nvidia driver loads? As far as I know the 980m should work fine on your system without any BIOS mods. @Darcoder has a 980m in the same system as you and I do not believe he has this issue.

 

I would remove and reseat the card. Make sure the mxm connector is completely clean. Rub the mxm connector pins in the direction of the pins with a cloth (shirts are good) and rubbing alcohol. This will make sure they are completely clean. Display outputs and PCI-E are very sensitive to dirt on the connector because they are high frequency.

Thanks Khenglish for you response, no problem at all, i am not sure if the mxm connector are the reason because  i made sure they are clean beside the card came to me directly from Euorocom brand new and sealed.but it won't harm to redo it,  I don't know about Darcoder but his system is ( P377sma ) and his bios could be defferent, so I wonder if i use his bios my problem will be cleared?

 

I already tried the p370sm bios as Prema advised  to someone on his official site before, but still " unknown". :(

in my p377sma, bios prema v2 and vbios prema. System detect the gpu as nvidia. 

But for my 1070N, it detect and will stay as unknow, to be able to install nvidia drivers, you have to boot with f7 ( driver disable something) from recovery\advance setup... then mod .inf driver to be able to instal a nvidia driver.

Thank you Darcoder for joining in, I have contacted Eurocom and they sent me a custom bios, now the gpu is identified the way it should be but the same problem still exists which I can't access bios or safe mode without a second monitor.

actually it's a vise verse case, the windows can see and identify the gpu just fine after installing nvidia driver but bios is not picking up the card that's why I need a second monitor only in bios and safe mode.

 

Never had this  issue with 780m for 4 years including 2 years with windows 10.

Just wondering since the p375sm and p377sm are about the same, is it OK to flash my p375sm with p377sm Prema bios?

Hello everyone,

I have a clevo p651se and his harddrive is almost full , so i wanted to buy a m.2 pcie ssd and since this computer has pcie2.0 x4 connector i was wondering if there is a mod to update this to 3.0 or to support the nvme , i saw on the first page that there is only a vbios for p65xse , which is only for gpu i think?

thanks

I finally dowloaded the prema biosmod and the modded bios was inside , i also give a little money to prema to thanks him.

After some hour of search because of some  "resume from hibernation"  problem which didn't allow me to enter the bios non modded  ( problem solved only type  shutdown /s /f /t 0  on the command window and you will have a full shutdown )  i finally found the version of my bios : 1.03.01  , i also found on an other website a newer bios for the computer   (http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/clevo-bios-older-models-released-in-after-2014.790474/ )  1.05.01 "support for win 10"  , i am already in win 10 ^^ , my question: should i install the premamod bios now or should i update the EC and bios before ????

and second question does the premamod bios change something about pciessd compatibility ? (nvme   3.0  etc. )????

THANKS for reading !

Hi, I modded my bios for the microcode hack to be able to oc my i7 4710mq in my P170SM-A. Here' the link to the site that shows how to mod http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/4ghz-overclock-i7-4xxxxmq-h-to-i7-extreme-conversion-intel-haswell-cpu-microcode-bug-hack.790177/

 The instructions do not mention adding the old version microcode back into the bios, so i didn't, but I have a feeling i should have. my laptop now has a black screen and reboots every minute continually. If I put a usb with a rom of the bios that prema put in another post for the fn b method, and I hold fn b, my usb's lights flash and the hdd light on the laptop flashes 3 times in a row quicky  every few seconds then the flashing stops and the laptop gets stuck in the blackscreen reboot loop again. 

What should I do? I need this laptop for my study that starts in a week.

 

The bios it was running before the issues is this. Image https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7QJ1eF_RQN8NnJJdjVDQnVpLTZobkpucFJOVl9LSUxveXZv/view?usp=sharing

Rom file https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7QJ1eF_RQN8MEZhYmVJQzlnWlU/view?usp=sharing

 

And the modded one https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7QJ1eF_RQN8SmhsZHJ5TWpGMzA/view?usp=sharing

If it can be fixed, I'll happily donate :)

 

If soft fixes don't work, what options are there with flashing the bios chip directly?

 

Thanks

 

Robin

Fixed it! I flashed the bios chip directly with flashrom on my Raspberry Pi 2 model B. https://www.flashrom.org/Flashrom. @Prema have you used this? I just looked at the motherboard schematics to find the bios chip model, then google the pinout for the chip. I soldered wires onto my chip and connected them to specific pins on the gpio of the rpi, then flashrom detected the chip and I could flash it. Typing this on my now unbricked P170SM-A!

This method works with some of the older model RPi's so it is a cheap method to unbrick a laptop with a corrupt bios.

 

Cheers,

 

Robin

Hi all, 

This is my first time post on these forums, firstly it is great to be part of this forum, it seems very much up my alley, nice to meet you all. Now to my issue; I believe I am having an HDCP issue connecting my laptop to my Samsung UE55KS7000 4K TV, and after extensive troubleshooting I have come to the conclusion it might be the BIOS that was pre-installed on my second hand P377SM-A Clevo laptop I purchased recently. I am currently on the BIOS version listed on my post over at overclock.net.

If you could kindly take a look at this post and let me know how to go back to the stock BIOS as I cannot find it anywhere.

I spent a lot of money on this laptop, and the TV, and I cannot get output to the TV. It is detected in nvidia control panel, but there is zero output. Do you guys have any ideas?

UPDATE: Hi all, I have figured it out. I managed to get the laptop to output to the TV by constantly switching between 4k/1080p/RGB/420/422/444 with the HDMI audio DISABLED. It seemed that as soon as I disabled sending the audio signal, and messed around with the settings, it just randomly output to the TV. I'd already gone ahead and purchased a £130 XA-HDCP from CYP. Got to send it back now. Haha. I hope this helps someone with the same issue. Feel free to contact me direct for any advice on this. I have done weeks of research.

      Title sums it up.
       
      TL;DR: we have a Clevo that runs a desktop CPU, one with those huge 82 Wh batteries. We remove the GPU and let it use the CPU's integrated graphics. How much time for the battery to go from 100 to 0? Is it comparable to an ultrabook's?
       
      I'm theorizing a mobile set with a static eGPU and an upgradable CPU. Given a hypothetical user that needs fast processing on the go and long battery life while retaining very high degrees of mobility, but at home wants a powerful machine to run most games, I guess that would be their best bet. It would surely be more convenient to keep everything in the same disk. And even though the thing would be quite heavy to carry around, changing CPU would be more cost-efficient than changing an entire laptop. (Not sure if I'm right here, and also I'm not sure whether the motherboard in a Clevo would be replaceable when the new CPU needs a different socket, which is another reason why I'm asking here.)
       
      If my above guesses aren't correct, then an ultrabook with Thunderbolt and without a dedicated GPU would be a better choice. If they are, then we would be carrying more weight in exchange of a more cost-efficient setup, which I think would be a fair tradeoff.
       
      Also I am aware of the heating problems that these laptops suffer from, at least compared to a desktop setup. Would they be solved by moving the GPU out of the chassis, and instead plugging it with an eGPU dock via Thunderbolt port?
       
      What do you think? Is it doable? If not, why?

      A part of my BIOS got corrupted that controls my laptops backlights. Other methods like the Gary Key fix did not work for me because I do not get any light up during post. i followed this guide  that says I need to extract and use the 6MB portion of an 8MB bios dump, only AFUWIN tells me "Error, ROM file size does not match existing BIOS size which is because my laptop BIOS size is only 5.87MB.  I don't need to flash the whole BIOS, I only need to flash a portion of it. 
       
      I've searched everywhere online for a dump of my laptop model but non exist that I know of.

      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

      I installed an NVIDIA Quadro P4000 Max-Q in a Clevo P750DM-G.
       
      Device manager hardware ID shows:
      PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1BB7&SUBSYS_75021558&REV_A1
       
      I have done the standard inf file mod, then disabled driver enforcement as I have done successfully in the past, but it's not working this time. The install starts, then fails less than half way through. I have tried the DCH version, standard version, and studio versions and none of them will work. I am probably missing something. Could it be the result of the vBIOS?
