Alienware M17xR3 6990 to 880. Is this possible?
i am an unhappy owner of an Alienware m17x r3 with ati 6990m. My question is..is possible to upgrade my laptop with a gtx 880m? upgrademonkey staff say yes, but i am not sure. They told me that for more info should go here...so what do u think guys?
675M -> 880M in M17x r4. copy win7 drivers?
Hello everyone, I just installed a new 880M into my M17x r4, booted into Debian and everything worked perfectly (using proprietary drivers from previous 675M)
But things didn't look so nice when I logged into my Win7. I downloaded the latest drivers from Nvidia(361.43), created a modded inf and the installation failed
The error looks like the screenshot on this page: http://www.custompcguide.net/2-methods-to-fix-nvidia-installer-failed-issue-for-geforce-video-cards/
I have tried: DDU, Safe Mode, Disabled Driver Signing Mode, "Manual" Install through device manager, two other versions of the driver and more(tm)
So after trying all possible guides that I could find online, I decided to install another copy of win7 onto a clean partition. The driver install worked flawlessly and I managed to even get a stable +60/+200 overclock on the card, yay
Migrating my previous windows installation by reinstalling all programs would at least take me another two full days and cost a lot of nerves :/
Thus I'm asking you guys whether you know a way to either
- get the drivers to install
- copy the drivers from one windows installation to the other (both are win7 ultimate x64)
- easily get the old programs moved over to the new partition (including registry, user accounts and all other windows stuff)
my old windows installation has experienced dd(cloning hdd) and multiple partition resizes besides being windows and thus slowly decaying over time.
looking forward to your answers
my 1440p screen flickers sometimes. might this be caused by the integrated graphics and could i disable it somehow? (i have tried different dp cables)
what OCs have you achieved on the 880M? what's the maximum voltage that you'd classify as safe? temps with current OC dont go over 70C, stock cooler is pretty loud though

Posts like the one highlighted below are what make up the heart and soul of Tech|Inferno. We've got enthusiasts like HotPantsHenry that take a perfectly good MSI GT60-0NC notebook with an 880m GPU and decide to take it to the next level by strapping on a waterblock to it using electrical tape..that's right electrical tape!

Here is an awful picture, but will give you an idea of what is going on.
Cpu cooling is stock. Even with minor OC to the cpu, the temps stay pretty cool.
1. Unlocked Nvidia core limit +135 MHz.
2. Unlocked Power Limit.
3. Unlocked Power adjustment by software (for example with Nvidia Inspector).
4. Increased Power Limit and Power Target.
5. Enabled some additional tweaks.
