Good day. Congratulations with bying new videocard! One of the problems is dGPU power consumption. GTX 980M really has this problem and it's a good idea to use Prema vBIOS Mod v2 for it - this vBIOS was created to solve throttling problem, but you need at least 240 Wt power supply to give necessary power resource.

And anyway please dump your current vBIOS (don't repeat my mistakes) before trying to flash. ModMe script runs without any problems in Windows 7...10. Tested on Clevo P150EM with similar dGPU.

Thanks for raising this. Fortunately my PSU is 240W.

 

I ran 3DMark and logged the temperature via GPU-z. My results were in line with similar non-overclocked setups. I could not observe any sign of throttling: In the Graphics tests the clock was maxed to the stock limit, but I did not see it dropping until the test finished. Also, the maximum temperature that was observed was 64 C , which is quite low.

 

Idle temp in Windows : 50 C...

 

Later on, I found via "nvidia-smi.exe -q" that the "GPU Slowdown Temp" for my card was 91 C. I do not see how my card can reach 91 C (without any OC), while my max temp in the benchmark is 64 C. I think this is quite a big difference to start worrying about throttling. I have not tested the card yet in a game though.

 

As it stands I will stick to the stock levels and stock vBios which do not appear to cause any hassle. I do not really seek for extra performance gain via OC by taking the risk of frying the card.

 

Btw, I saved my vbios via the GPU-z backup button. Is this sufficient for backup purposes?

The throttling will come soon or later. But it will not be thermal throttle it will be powerlimit throttle.

Both the Alienware m17x r3 and R4 and Alienware m18x R1 and R2 has a bug.

I have tried them all both with gtx 780m, 880m, 980m and now 1070.

They all powerthrottle in those systems. Gtx 880m was the worst.

 

If your computer crash or you force it to shut down by holding the power button. Then you will get the powerthrottle issue.

 

There is too ways to fix it.

1. Go to bios and switch to IGFX then restart and enter bios again and change it back to PEG.

 

2. When your computer is up and running then put it to hibernate for 3 second and wake it again, then the problem is gone until next time.

(It needs to be hibernate, sleep will not work.)

 

While I am here. There is a bug with the combination of windows 10, Alienware m17x r4 and sleep mode.

If you put it to sleep and wake it again, the sound card will still be at sleep and not being detected.

The fix is putting it back to sleep again and then wake it.

Hi

 

I was wondering if anyone can get a vbios modified in order to get a Quadro P3200 and P4200 in a dell precision 7530 and 7730 respectively to work. I bought both of the laptops with intel hd, then dell sold me the correct heatsinks, cable videos and video connectors, since they are not MXM in this case, and the video cards from a ebay seller.. Once installed I get error 43 and 45. They are recognized, but drivers are not working. Any chance anyone can help ? Willing to pay gladly to get this fixed.

 

Thanks

 

Jp

Hello, I've got a Dell 8gb Nvidia 980m, just wondering if there's an undervolted vBIOS I can use to preserve it's longevity, my ASIC quality is 69.9%.

Not having TDP throttle on top of that would also be nice I suppose given I've got a 240 watt brick and previously used a modded Quadro K4100m with 115w tdp just fine with a large overclock.

 

I'm fine with stock clocks however.

attached is my stock vBIOS

980mdellGM204.rom

 

Very much appreciate it!

 

As a note:
the undervolted Alienware vBIOS on notebookreview locked to 0.9810V max caused the same issue getting 3d clocks to work, so I'm afraid my card likely requires at least 1v, but any reductions to temps vs stock would be lovely!

For the 2011 iMac world, I'm looking to see if someone can mod the voltage, power and boost table to accommodate a 880M into these machines.

The computer uses a 310W supply and the CPU uses 65W TDP (assuming a i7 2600s upgrade was done). The SSD barely uses any power, lets say 2W.

 

Appreciate very much Johnksss (for the 780M) and svl7 (for the 770M, 765M) mods that were done. These are rock stable even with intense use prolonged use of the iMac.

 

A good starting base for the mod would be the Dell ROM:

Dell.GTX880M.8192.140309.rom attached

 

A working model of an already modded ROM:

780M_EG2 attached

 

Awesome work as usual!

 

 

Dell.GTX880M.8192.140309.rom.7z

780M_EG2.7z

Hello there. I have a little mod request of my own that may or may not be an experience. Long story very short, I recently decided to go AMD in my laptop, and in doing so, I got myself a S7100X - because Polaris hasn't seemed to work for the device I wanted to use. I'm looking for a mod to the card's VBIOS, which is in fact not signature enforced, to unlock, and modify a few values I cannot touch.

 

I do have a SPI Flasher, as well as hybrid graphics, so I have backup options in case anything odd happens.

 

My Requests

 

  • If possible, I would like for voltage, as well as TDP/clocks to be unlocked.
  • In addition to this, since I cannot modify this value in afterburner, I would like for battery power, and small battery power to be reduced 50 from 75 watts.

 

I will include two things in my post additionally. First, if it's helpful, TechPowerUp's parse on the VBIOS and relevant aspects:

https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/216440/216440

 

Second, the VBIOS as requested, which will be attached. I should note that Tonga/Hawaii Bios Reader does not function for this particular VBIOS and card. Likely because even though it's a sub branch of Tonga, it's more accurate that the architecture is Amethyst - which is the reason for my request. Thank you for reading!

Hello everybody, I want to request an unlocked video bios for my laptop MSI GE72 6QF w/ 970M 3 GB. I want to overclock it over the +135 mhz limit MSI afterburner gives me. Also undervolt it if possible?

Just checking in, waiting for my promotion to be able to download the BIOS tools to provide my HP 8570W info to request removal/modification of the GPU whitelist. Got a M2000M I'm eager to get rolling, since I long ago upgraded to i7-3840QM, mSATA, and AC wireless. 32GB RAM from the beginning. Video is the only thing slowing me down.

Hello svl7,
 
I hope you can help me. I have a CLEVO 7970M (V1.2) and I've seen people have had success getting it to work in the W8*0CU generation notebooks with a modded VBIOS but all the links are dead. This is the VBIOS on the card: https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/148551/clevo-hd7970m-2048-120326
 
I'd appreciate any help you can give me.

So I installed the 7970M, the heatsink is correct and it even boots up because I can hear the Windows jingle in the background when it reaches the login screen but the monitor is completely blank/black!
 
I think this is a good sign though, I just need a suitable VBIOS to perform the blind flash.
 
Update: I worked it out in the end, summary here:

Hello SVL,
Can you modify the bios of the alienware m15x r2 (those with the i7 940m for example)?

And could you also modify a vbios of an original MSI cg 780m GTX to make it fully compatible with my alienware m15x r2?
I found one of your vbios for 780M but ... I always had a white screen when starting and stopping the pc.
And I can't activate my sound card ...


thank you in advance,

Hello SVL,
Here is the bios of my 780m GTX.
https://www.transfernow.net/l6U1ib022021

Can you see if it is possible to make it 100% compatible with my alienware m15x (i7 940XM and 780m GTX) by changing the bios?

Hi @Klem, @svl7

Could you please look on my vBIOS?

I have a very interesting video card - Nvidia Tesla P6, but I currently can't use it cause it's switched  to the Compute mode and I can't switch it to the Graphic mode. I made a dump from the SPI programmer, here it is:

      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.

      Bios Release Version – v2.0.0
       

       
      Updated or Modded Items:
      A11 UNLOCKED BIOS FOR m18Xr2 (UNLOCKED BY SVL7 AND FULL CREDIT GOES TO HIM FOR UNLOCKING!)
      SVL7 Also created the PRR2.EXE tool that allows you to flash the new bios by unlocking it.  (FULL CREDIT GOES TO HIM FOR THAT FILE PRR2.EXE)
       
      Here are ALL the things I've added, modded, and enhanced on this bios -
      I've added FULL LEGACY SUPPORT ON THIS BIOS with ONE or TWO CARDS (SLI).  You can FINALLY use Win 7 OS on your machine and run the 900 series GPU's! 
      This is a MAJOR breakthrough!
       
      LEGACY SUPPORT Confirmed.  Works with 900 series GPu's in single OR SLI formation Updated the Intel RST Legacy to v12.9.0.2006 (Supports TRIM in RAID0 - CONFIRMED) Updated Intel RST UEFI to v12.9.0.2006 (Supports TRIM in RAID0 - CONFIRMED) Updated the ONBOARD Video Card for the HD3xxx to v2171 - FROM v2132 Updated ONBOARD Video Card for the HD4xxx to v2171 - FROM v2132 Updated the LAN Firmware & PXE Boot from 2.0.5.9 to v2.0.6.6 ADDED NvMe Support for m18xr2 ADDED M.2 support for m18xr2 Updated CPU Microcode to v29 for the 2900 CPU's Updated CPU Microcode to v1c for the 3900 CPU's Updated GOP Driver for Intel Sandy Bridge CPU Updated GOP Driver for Intel Ivy Bridge CPU Updated MAIN GOP Policy module for the m18xR2 Eliminated some code that wasn't used in the m18xR2 Updated CSM Module (v2) Streamline some coding to make mod(s) run a little more efficiently (v2) Added FPARTS.TXT to rar file in v2. (I had forgot to add it in v1) v2.5 to be released shortly.  I've updated a few more modules that I didn't realize could be updated.  (It's only 3 modules, but it's still an update!)   It should be released in about a week.  Hope this helps ya'll!  
      Instructions to flash:
      Use a flash drive to create a boot disk into dos Unzip ALL files into the root of the flash drive (flash.bat, r2final.bin, fpt.exe, flash.bat, prr2.exe, fparts.txt,m18r2.hdr, m18r2.hdr.bin, readmefirst.txt) BOOT INTO DOS – Note, that when you set the bios to legacy in order to boot into dos, you MAY have to reinstall OS!  (Just be prepared to reinstall no matter what) Once you boot into dos, run the file flash.bat It will unlock your bios (THANKS TO SVL7’s BIOS UNLOCKING TOOL – ALL CREDIT TO HIM FOR THIS TOOL!) Let it flash… Reboot your pc, and enjoy the MASSIVE updates!  
      Be on the lookout as I do plan to release newer version with more updates in the future.  However, it wont be for at least a few weeks as I'm now working on legacy support for the m17xR4 and several other systems.  So please be patient!
       
      ENJOY!

      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
