Have Anyone a video bios for 8970m graphic card, to make it as a r9 m290x?

I have clevo P170SM

Probably from P170SM-A will work.

Vbios can be downloaded from GPU-Z

Someone help me ? :)

There is no special vBIOS 8970M & M290x share the same. Clevo just changed the name to m290x in the BIOS, that's all.

After all it's the same card since 7970M...

After 6 month with a macbook pro, (had to go mac route, work related...), I just ordered a P150SM-A. Feels good to be back in PC camp and seeing Prema hard at work for a bios mod for SM-A!!! I hope I can run OS X hackintosh on the SM-A as well.

As I said Clevo only renamed the cards in BIOS. They are one and the same. If they share a hardware ID that driver would also show 8970M for a M290x...

If not you can update the vBIOS, but I can't promise that it'll work...your choice...PM me if you want to crossflash...

Anyone here with a P370SM-A or P377SM-A who wants to help test something?

I can confirm, there´s no hardware id change for the graphic card. It´s just a rename in the BIOS.

Still what make it show up like M290X is the driver.

If you get the driver from the ATI website any card will show up like 8970, if you get the driver from CLEVO (wich seems to be only modded?) you will get M290X... no diference, no performance change... just a RENAME of the hardware...

Prema can´t help you with a P370SM-A atm, but i can help with a P570WM if you need :P

Prema,

M290x have directx 11.2 support and better codec for video

The vbios is a key for that features :)

Its all just marketing. Whatever features they promised you it's all in the driver.

When AMD went from 7970M to 8970M they at least changed the vBIOS, but when they went from 8970M to M290x, they didn't even bother to do that.

The literally renamed it in the system BIOS and driver.

That being said there are newer vBIOS but they are mere bug-fix releases and to support different mxm board revisions and vRAM manufacturer.

Thank you for all you do. You are the embodiment of awesome. The stock Clevo BIOS' are so incredibly limited and terrible

Hello Prema!

I have clevo p151em, and when I go to step2 command to enter to get a message: Not enough memory avilable.

What can be happening? I used the file P151EM_17_11_PM_v2_K2

Try to format the USB stick with 'MS-DOS' and not 'free-DOS' or ttry another USB stick.

Yeah it just changes it from 10% to 5%. ;)

Haven't even added that function. It is one of the few things you can do in the stock BIOS... :P

I have this option with status "disabled" in bios, but beeping is al the time when I have that level of battery :(

Maybe ME 9.1.x.x cause this problem?

As I said, that is normal. It doesn't really disables but reduces it from 10% to 5% before it starts to beep.

It's Clevo's stock BIOS option and it never really disabled the beep on any system. It is working on your system as Clevo intended it.

Just set your Windows to hibernate at 6% or 7% and you'll have your peace. :)

Thank you Prema for such a dedicated work! I'm expecting my Clevo W230SS in the next coming weeks. I just found the Thread and will have to start studying overclocking / undervolting parameters and strategies not to mess up things. Nevertheless my main concern on the updated BIOS is the possibility to tweak cooling strategies to minimize heat effects and noise on normal operation (I've been reading quite a few posts on noise problems).

Thanks!

Hey I have a W370SS and on normal usage that fan is absolutely silent, unless you manually set the fan to maximum speed then that's when you start to hear it. (Or if for some reason you're playing a game that the laptop finds resource intensive) (I've yet to play a game and have the fan reach maximum speed)

Thanks Lobofly! Well, bare in mind that your machine is 17". the W230SS is 13" and the space is pretty tight on there. Anyway, I can't wait to start playing with this thing.

Hi.

I have just installed the latest prema mod BIOS on my W350ST and I am very happy with the improvements overall. Just one question: I now find that when the laptop is plugged in the fan runs ALL the time (at low speed). Is this correct? This is even when there is no load on CPU/GPU.

Ok I see. Yes not having the crazy fun bursts anymore is excellent! I actually uninstalled the hotkey app ages ago as it didn't seem to do anything useful! what purpose does it serve??

Hi Prema,

Just downloaded your bios mod for the Clevo W370ST as the fans drive me nuts on this thing plus the lack of bios options.

I tried to extract the rar folder and it asked for a password? where or how do i get the password?

Thanks.

      Hello to all big format laptop users!
      I`ll try to make it as short as possible. I have the Alienware M18X R1 for about 7years, i think. It was a problematic machine all the time. But during warranty period local support fixed everything super fast and free of charge :). I even upgraded from gtx 580m sli to gtc 780m sli. And made primary hdd samsung evo ssd. Unlocked Bios. Power brick i changed 3 times by now. Battery once. And 6moths ago one of the long time ago installed 780m died ( started with artifacts on screen then refused to boot windows). Replaced that and was as happy as ever. The machine kept working stable and i pushed all i could get from it in reasonably modern titles. Even tried RDR2 on default settings, gave me 17fps :). Not sure if SLI is supported for that game. The point is it was running fine for last 6 months.
      What happened:  Gaming as usual, room temp 23C. After around 2hr suddenly black screen. The laptop switched off by itself.
      What i check: First checked power brick. Green light off. Unplug from wall and laptop. After plugging in wall green light back on. Connect laptop light off.
      Next: Tried take out battery, unplug. And hold the PWR button for 1 min. Try to start on battery - nothing. Plug in - green light off again.
      Later: after some googling found that need to try to remove video cards. Done that. OK Nice! Plug in power and it starts as nothing happened on the integrated intel video.
      Found out that i one of the video cards is plugged in that triggers the power brick to trip. (the original upgrade 780m from years ago). 
      Start with GPU: Insert the other one in its slot. Systems start. But immediately i notice there`s no video drivers. OK i think reinstalling and job done. Drivers reinstalled, asked for restart. After restart nothing. Still no driver.
      Windows device manager: This is bogging me. it shows that i have 670M instead of 780m. Windows gives Code 43 Error.
      BIOS: I go into bios just to find that that it has reverted back to A05 (hows that possible?). And its so limited that i cant even choose witch video card to use. But it detects nVidia GFX.
      How to get at least my single 780M to be working?! Update bios again to unlocked? Did this event fry Vbios on my other card maybe?
      System: m18x R1
      SLI gtx 780m
      Unlocked bios (before event)
      nvidia driver 443.x(or there about)
      Win: 7, 64bit

      Hello,
      does anyone know, which is the chip holding the VBIOS-ROM on an AMD Pro-WX 7100?
       
      I've two AMD Pro WX 7100 which doesn't work. One has maybe a wrong VBIOS and gets deativated in BIOS before any system boots. The other one is not recognized by the MB so I suspect this one to be defective and un-soldered two chips, which I suspect to be the VBIOS-ROM:
       

       
      On earlier GPUs, the VBIOS was the chip closer to the GPU. But here, this chip has a bottom SMD contact which looks more like some power electronics...
      So before I start soldering on the probably working GPU - can you tell me, which actually is the VBIOS?

      Thanks.

      Hello there!
      I am new on the forum. I'd need some help. I own a lenovo ideacentre t540-icb g, and i would need to unlock all the options in my bios, especially overclocking and thermal configuration. I tried with both amibcp and mmtool, but i didn't succeed (Error 18).
      I wonder if you could help me or give me some advice.
      Thanks in advance.

      Hello everyone! First of all sorry if this isn't the correct forum to post this.
      I bought a laptop few days ago. The laptop is Sager P150EM.
      Cpu:i7 3610qm 
      Gpu: amd hd 7970m
      Ram: 8gb
      Os: windows 8.1 pro
      So my problem is that everytime i install the amd driver after the intel driver my laptop freezes or gets a bsod or something that stops it from working. Any help would be appreciated. I saw somewhere something about vbios does this matter anywhere?

      Hello everyone! I am looking for an answer to a problem I cannot find a solution to ... I purchased an Amd wx 4150 MXM GPU module su e bay to upgrade my HP 8570W Mobile Workstation which is currently equipped with a Fire Pro M4000. Once the new GPU has been installed, the PC screen no longer turns on but works only with external monitors connected via the docking station. The same happens once the drivers are updated! If I put the old card back on, the integrated monitor starts working again ... How can I fix it?
