Greetings from Brazil! Not sure I'm posting in the right place, but I have a question: how do I find out the brand and model of my BIOS chip without having to open my laptop? I can't find this information anywhere. Been searching for days... I have a Lenovo Ideapad 300-15ISK 80RS (motherboard Paris 5A8). Thanks a lot for your time and help! I really appreciate it! Best regards, JC.
Hi, I'm having problems trying to connect a GTX 750 Ti to my Lenovo T420 using the dock EXP GDC Beast (express card version).
My laptop: Lenovo T420
RAM: 8GB DDR3
CPU: Intel Core i5 2520M
GPU: Intel HD Graphics 3000
My problem is: if I plug the express card and I turn on the laptop it doesn't boot up and the screen becomes horrible, with coloured pixels and a sound like "bip-bip".
If I try plugging the express card when the laptop is already turned on it sees the gpu, but if try installing the drivers I have to apply the modifies restarting the computer.
I hope you understood my problem (I don't speak English very well).
Please help me, It's making me crazy!
EDIT: I didn't say that if I plug the express card when the pc is already turned on, in the device menager there is "Error 12" on the gtx 750 ti
I got the exp gdc beast 8.5 got all the connections right... laptop boots up... fans turn on the gpu.... device manager detects gtx 1060 with a “ ! “ in a yellow triangle. Now what to do.... i tried to do the bios mod.... but realised that i have 3.07 version.
1 is there any way to get this done without the mod??
2 if mod is the only way... kindly help me with step by step instruction in laymans terms... i m not a techy... so i might not understand technical terms.... altho i am interested... but learning yet. Please help.
I have several questions on upgrading my M18X R2.
My rig's GPU is 680m and video ram is 2GB. It's a relic :p So I will change it to 980m.
1. Is it working on windows 7? (If it works, legacy or UEFI mode?)
2. Is 980m /w G-sync compatible with my rig?
3. Are there any compatibility issues with M18X R2 and Windows 10?
I tried to find useful information far as I can do, but my English ability sucks :S
Guys, please help me!
