Dear Klem,

 

Could you unlock mine also?

(power limit, overclock and overvolt)

 

thank you!

(the one you gave me before wasn’t based on my vbios version and gave me black screen on boot, had to reflash it with my previous one on another laptop)

Hello, I am new to this forum and I have an old Sager P150SM-A that I would be like to use for overclocking. The problem is that I have a GTX 970m 6gb whose vBios does not allow for more then 135mhz on the core. I would like to know if there is a way of breaking the limit, without any experience in modding. Thanks in advance.

Hi!

Ok. Send me your original stock vbios from your card, or upload it to any fileserver and send me the link.

Hi Klem, thanks for your help.

 

Lenovo y50-70

i7 4720hq

gtx 960m

 

having some trouble tweaking it for best gaming performance (Overwatch). I can play around with CPU clocks and voltage, but the mobile maxwell GFX are leaving some room for improvement.

 

I have NVFlash but the instructions to use it, linked from the OP, are missing the attachments that tell you what to do.

Hello. I want to ask a question. I have Asus X556UQK-DM537 notebook and it has 940mx ddr3. I have already overclocked +135 on core and +230 on memory. Temperature is fine. Is modding 940mx vbios possible? I have tried GPU-Z dump, and it gives me error: "Bios reading is not supported on this device." I read old replies on this topic and you say 940mx vbios is in system bios. I have uefi bios. Is this possible?

Well, in this laptop model, vbios it's a part of main system bios, therefore Nvflash can't read/write vbios in this laptop. You can overclock your 960M with Nvidia Inspector utility.

If you want to try overclock 960M more then +135MHz, you need to modify and then flash your main system bios. Check your PM.

Hi everyone, I am a newcomer and wanted to send a message, but now I know I can only reach him here for example, I will post it here.

So sorry everyone for long post, maybe even wrong thread, but I am reffering here (see ---).
 

Hey @Klem,

 

I think you could help me a lot.

I have particularly read a 1,5 year old thread on this site  this thread (page 35) where you posted a modified .rom file for the Quadro M2000M for someone, and I can't download it now, so I decided to sign up and give it a try, after using VPN as well, so I guess that link is dead.

But as I see after signing up, you are still active on the site, so maybe better if I tell everything about what I want to do.

 

So to begin my story, I have a 4 year old Dell Precision M4800 with a Quadro K1100M, i7 4800MQ, FHD display, running on retail Win 10 Pro (for more specs I can give a service tag later).

I was recently thinking about GPU performance improvement, so I have bought a Quadro M2000M card from eBay for only about 160 USD.

Did the decision after reading a long forum on Notebookreview. The slot is the same, TDP is same as the better stock GPU (K2100M), so in short: it should work as many people confirmed it. Also, it is a really big performance improvement, so I can use this laptop for even more years without a desktop, maybe it is obvious, nevermind.

(Why Quadro?: I am working with CADs too, not just gaming)

So, the card I have bought is unfortunately a HP version (but cheaper and new), at least it is described as that, I think can even link that too:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/232952540187

 

I have a friend working with computer techs (not in a computer service), who already helped me in disassembling my laptop for cleaning, replacing parts etc. (even choosing it), so I have not much expereince in either flashing, modding any BIOS, besides replacing parts with a tutorial, but he has some experience in it, and he is willing to help me in the project, applying thermal paste too, which I have also never done (I know it is important to be done properly).

I am telling this because I am the one who has the time to look up things, such as sending you this message.

The card will be at my place this week, so I don't even know yet how it actually looks (got delivered at other location fine by the way).

 

As I read the steps on that forum, I know that I have to turn off driver signature to modify the driver .inf file (after checking Vendor ID in GPU-Z), and then it should work fine, maybe with a bit loud fans. What I still don't know for sure, is that it will maybe work only with external displays (I have one Dell U2417H monitor and a docking station, as well as my friend, so that's not a problem, more on that later), because the built-in panel is surely LVDS (checked it with HWInfo and Google search), and some says (and one of my friends contact too) that this card works with eDP only, which means I won't get internal screen with the GPU. So my first question is: do you know anything sure about this?

 

The second, and current problem is that, as I have downloaded the softwares that we may need, such as the things I have already mentioned (the driver that needs to be modificated, GPU-Z, even Dell vBIOS for this GPU) but also NiBiTor and NVFlash. I tried to use NiBiTor, but it even refuses to open my existing .rom exported with GPU-Z.

I think it doesn't support mobile Quadro cards.

So, the second question is, can you provide me a stock, Dell version .rom of M2000M, and tell me how to open it? Beacuse it seems to be NiBiTor is useless in this case for any future modifications, for example underclocking for lower temps/noise. Or do you think, it would even work with that vBIOS?

I can't give you specific Vendor ID until we got the card in on this Friday with my friend.

 

Any advice can be useful, and I am new to this, so tried to type everything down as precise as I can.

Even if you can send me that .rom what you uploaded in 2017 is a big help.


Thanks in advance!

 

Regards,

Mat

 

P.S.: Sorry for bad english.

Hi @Klem, can you unlock my vbios for the 840M? (ASUS K451ln)

I already modded the vbios a bit to undervolt the GPU by raising the Max Table Clock, but depending on the game I still got stutters and clock drops that showed in GPU-Z 

as PerfCap Reason: Pwr, which I assume is hitting PowerLimit throttle

but then this only happen in games, in Furmark I can force it to run with 1.2V voltage and doesn't hit that power throttle, so Im hoping that having unlocked TDP maybe could solve the issue.

When I edit my vbios with Maxwell BIOS Tweaker the memory clock and temp target also doesn't seem to stick, hopefully that would be fixed as well

Thanks in advance!

 

This is my the vbios Im using 840M.rom

And this is the default one I pulled from the latest system bios 840M.bin

I also tried a modded vbios that presumedly has been unlocked and made for the Acer Aspire E5-572G, but after numerous tries the gpu is not recognized after I replace the vbios using UEFITools (MMTools report a "Invalid FFS" error that I assume due to mismatch checksum since the size of 2 BIOSes are different) Aspire E5-572G.rom

I'm looking for unlocked vbios ( (power limit, overclock and overvolt) of 970m 3Gb in Apache Pro GE62 :

one for 2QF while the other is for 6QF ...

You already did such mod for 2QF on oct,23 2016, and for 6QF on nov,22 2018.

 

Thanks a lot for your help.

I hope asking this question isn't frowned upon, but I'd really like to remove the startup message I get when I use the 980m Slv7 vbios. I love what it does, but slowing down startup to show it every time I want to fire up my PC has resulted in me uninstalling it. I'm worried about just deleting stuff and creating problems. I didn't mind seeing the message that much at first, but I'd like to be able to skip it entirely if possible. If someone could show me what to delete, I'd be very thankful.

      I have tried to update nvidia drivers of my notebook ge72vr6rf apache pro. The only drivers that works are the ones provided by the msi. The problem is that they haven't updated those since 2016 and I can't play newer games. 
       
      Some say you need to mod your 1060 drivers, which I have no idea how to some says you need to update the flags in ini files. So please help me

      Hello, I've got a Dell Precision M4700 with a 3940xm. I've read that in this particular CPU and laptop model, the bios is locked because the stock settings are considered an overclock. As-is, the core temps on the CPU do reach up to 90-100. They seem to spike up and down a bit when benchmarked with Intel's Extreme Tuning Utility, but they certainly do reach over 90C. Is there no way to unlock this bios (version a18, though a19 is released - I haven't updated yet, should I?) and even if there were, would my only option be a heatsink mod on top of that?
       
       
      edit: I've mistakenly posted this under Desktop & General Hardware, perhaps a mod could move or delete the thread? Apologies!

      Hello, I've got a Quadro M2200 (GPU: GM206GL-A Revision A1, and MxM 3.0a Maxwell card) with the following bios: 84.06.76.00.1C
       
      I've read that this card is very similar to the GTX 965m, but that it has been underclocked considerably. It seems to be a good candidate for unlocking since I hardly see the temperature exceed 70C as-is. I'm requesting help with this - I'm not sure if it's possible to simply flash the vbios from a Dell GTX 965m (MxM 3.0a) or if some type of edit of the card's current vbios would do the trick. I'm hoping someone could help me out with the specifics of doing such an edit if that's the case. 
       
      Thanks!
