hey @Klem can you take a look at my gtx970m 3gb bios(alienware 15). I wish to unlock his overclock more than the stock 135mhz on core and memory, and maybe voltage control too. Thanks.

Hi Klem !

 

Sorry to bother you, but I saw that you already helped several members with similar requests, so I thought that you could also help me too by any chance !

 

I have a 2015 release of the AW 15, 980m 4gb, bios A06 and for the last 3 years, I didn't experience any problem related with performances in-game. However, recently, i've had to face throttleling issues which, aparently, are not uncommon on this rig. Two years ago I downloaded a modded Vbios by Prema, just in case, but I'm affraid I lost the file and for some reason (which is probably a good one), Prema stopped sharing his work with the community.

If I had the skills, I would have modded my bios by myself but I'm affraid to f...up my laptop. So I figured you could help with that ?

 

Thanks for your pain !

Hi bud!
Hope you can help me out, this problem is driving me crazy. So, short history, I have an Alienware 17 R2 with the 980m. The battery died, and so my pc is shuting down because i have the 180W ac adapter. Although i flashed the A00 version of the BIOS on my pc, it's still shutting down, so i would like to ask you a real real favor, to unlock my vBIOS so i can perform a proper undervolting please, an d i will try to low the power consumption too. Have a great day! Hope i can get a response.

I had a similar problem and it was only fixed by getting a new adapter

Hi there, 

 

Is the BIOS on the first post compatible with my Alienware 17 R3 980m 8GB by any chance? 

 

I attached my current bios in any case. 

 

Thank you.

Edit: 

@Klem Can i get an answer from you regarding my question please before i buy membership to be able to download it? 

 

Thanks so much.

Hi!

No, Alienware17 R3 GTX 980m 8 gb uses a BGA GTX 980m 8gb, not a MXM, so the vbios from the first page doesn't work with your laptop.

Hello forum first post . 

I got my hands on a Alienware 17r2 with a 980m 4gb GFX . I bought it very cheap knowing it comes with a lot throttling issues which ive dealt with via repaste and getting good setting using throttle stop , I was pointed in the direction by another forum about getting custom vbios which will help with this headache of a Alienware ,

 

long story short can you please help me Klem as my knowledge is limited in the vbios settings 

 

Thank you inadvance if you can cheers

      Hello, I'm on an alienware m17 r4 and am trying mod my vbios for a 970m 3GB msi. I've managed to get the max boost with an increase in voltage, however I believe my voltage settings maybe unstable. When attempting to load programs capable of high gpu usage capabilities, the gpu begins to become pretty unstable. would anyone be able to provide assistance? I have both my edited and original roms as well.
       
      *update
       
      I'm not sure how to delete this thread but disregard this please. I've figured out the issue.

      Flashing Overview:
       
      - Go to the device manager -> 'Display Adapters' -> chooser your GPU, right click on it and choose disable
       
      - Flash the VBIOS with mnvflash, a modified version of nvflash (see attachments). Below are detailed instructions for nvflash in case you aren't familiar with it.
      - After the flashing is done: Enable the GPU once again in the device manager.
      - Reboot
       
      Detailed Instructions:
       
      As soon as you see the command line you're ready to go, write
      dir and hit enter to display all the files on the USB drive.
       
      Display all Nvidia adapters in the system:
      nvflash -a  
      or alternatively the longer version of the command:
      nvflash --list This command will return you a list with all Nvidia adapters present in your system.
       
      Here's an example output of this command run on my M15x with a 680m in it:
      NVIDIA Firmware Update Utility (Version 5.117) NVIDIA display adapters present in system: <0> N13E-GTX (10DE,11A0,1028,02A2) H:--:NRM B:02,PCI,D:00,F:00 The number in the <> brackets is the index of the corresponding device. SLI users will have more than one entry and flash each card separately.
       
      Backup your current VBIOS:
      Never forget to keep a backup of your original VBIOS before you flash anything non-stock. Use this command to save a copy of the firmware to your USB drive:
      nvflash -b filename.rom or with
      nvflash --save filename.rom  
      Flash the VBIOS to your card(s):
      For a single card it's really straight forward, you don't need to worry about the adapter indices. Just use this command:
      nvflash -6 vbiosname.rom -6 will allow you to override mismatches of the PCI subsystem ID. In case of a mismatch you'll need to confirm the flash with 'y'. NOTE: Users with a non-US keyboard might need to press 'z' or similar, because the 'y' isn't at the same location for all keyboard layouts.
       
      SLI users will need to flash each card separately. The concept stays the same, but you will need to use the corresponding adapter index to flash a card. How to figure out the adapter nr. is described above.
      Flashing goes like this:
      nvflash -i[index] -6 vbios.rom [index] represents a number, namely the index you found with the 'nvflash -a' command. So a command example to flash a card which has index 0 is: 'nvflash -i0 -6 vbios.rom'

      The new leak of NVFlash version 5.513.0 with their new RTX GPU (Turing) support is now available in our download section. This includes support for NVIDIA's new RTX 2080 Ti, 2080 and 2070 desktop GPUs. As always, use caution when reading/writing vbios files as you can potentially brick your card and void your warranty.
