Clevo p150em & gtx 670m 1.5gb

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I bought used 670M pulled from AW system to insert in my MS 16F3. Installed, no screen on boot. Luckily, I have Clevo P150EM laying around. Installed it there, no thermal alarm, BIOS recognized it as GTX 670M, nvflash also, everything looks great. I saved its vBios and went on another computer to look for vBios version just to be sure which card it is (used NiBiTor to see vBios version which was 80.something..). Since the card is 1.5GB, I assumed it wasn't DELL/AW card because they come with 2GB? That led me to download older 70.24.. Clevo vBios which was successfully flashed after. BIOS and nvflash recognized it, no thermal alarm, great!

Pulled the card out of Clevo P150EM and installed in MS 16F3. Screen on boot, no fan spinning max, everything perfect! Installing Windows for like 10 minutes and then fan starts spinning max. Installed Windows, chipset, Intel management, Intel VGA and finally nVidia driver with custom .inf from laptopvideo2go.com. Device Manager shows yellow triangle next to GTX 670M. Rebooted and tried flashing MSI vBios with nvflash. I get the line checking image and ID's, something like that, and skips flashing. Checked EEPROM and it said status Unknown. Entered Windows and 670M shows in Device Manager with yellow triangle next to it. (Code 43 was error from the beginning btw) Reinstalled 670M in Clevo, BIOS and nvflash recognized it, however nvflash cannot write anything to it. Reinstalled back to MS 16F3 and same thing with nvflash. It shows it is there, but cannot write to it. Back to P150EM, 670M shows in BIOS and nvflash, but I cannot flash it. After 2 restarts, nvflash doesn't recognize 670M, but BIOS does.

So I am confused now. How can a card show up in Windows if it doesn't get recognized under nvflash nor can be flashed? Shall I try different nvflash version or reinstall in either laptop?

I've put this thread under Clevo because P150EM reads a lot of cards, serves me as a diagnosis tool and I would like to get it working it there first.

It might be lengthy post, but I tried to include every detail and be specific. Hopefully it helps someone else too!

Try the attached NVFLASH in Windows! This version will even flash the card if the SPI has no current data present at all.

Prema, first I thank you truly for spending time to take a look at my problem!

Second, I shall insert 670M in either laptop that gets it recognized and flash in Windows or that must be specifically in P150EM? What about the vBios version? I've never done NVFLASH in Windows, what is going to happen when new vBios is flashed?

Third, I have a couple of vBioses:

1) Clevo vBios that came with the card, which I have saved before flashing (version 80...)

2) Clevo vBios from Techpowerup (70...)

3) MSI vBios from Techpowerup (70...)

4) MSI vBios downloaded from some thread on Notebookreview, seems like the original MSI 1.5GB latest version (80... I guess).

I could use NiBiTor to check them all.

So yeah, which one? :adoration:

My original plan was to use 670M in MS 16F3. Is my plan possible?

Flash an MSI vBIOS with correct vRAM size

I still cannot flash it. It just skips when checking image and ID's. I tried method -4 -5 -6 vbios_name.rom and cmd shows list of commands.

However, your attached NVFLASH does read 670M, but still no luck writing to it. Wanna do Teamviewer or I could post up screenshots?

Error: supported EEPROM not found. This shows when I try to back up vBios. When I try to flash it, it just skips.

I ran ModMe.bat in Windows and it shows first CMD window, asks for permission and then shows seconds CMD windows for half a second.

I'm doing all this in MS 16F3 laptop, because P150EM has thermal shutdown and won't run more than 1 min or less.

Only -6 is still a valid command on the new nvflash. Make sure to keep the GPU active by having GPU-Z open on dgpu in the background.

I can read 670M info on GPU-Z, however, not BIOS version and clocks are set to 0. Ran ModMe.bat, no progress.

Want a screenshot?

While NVFLASH is trying to run its command in cmd click on the cmd window and hit "enter" a couple of times.

Uninstall nvidia driver, then boot into windows safe mode and flash the card there.

Did you keep GPU-Z active in the background?

OK, use the old DOS version of nvflash and flash it in via USB in pure DOS.

GPU-Z while in Windows or Safe Mode?

I tried NVFlash 5.136 in pure DOS. Still no luck. It skips when needs to flash it. I cannot check EEPROM status. Actually it says Unknown.

Well, I've tried with different versions, none worked. Card has been sent for re-programming. I will keep you updated.

Hey, actually no. I haven't re-programmed it. It still says Error 43. At the moment, I don't have any laptops to try it. When I get a chance, I will definitely try.

      Managed to find a relatively cheap MSI 1070 on ebay, and after reading a few success stories that 1070's are compatible I decided to pull the trigger. 
       
      Modified the bottom case as per the photo on this FAQ page http://www.eurocom.com/ec/faqs(272)ClevoP150EM_SagerNP9150_XMG_P502_PRO. Things were going well until I went to screw the card down and felt some resistance.
       
      Oops. Looks like that capacitor(?) with the blue on it *just* clashes with the card. Now what's weird is not all P150em motherboards seem to have this component on it - looking at replacements this component is not there. Also looking at the photos from this 1080m P150em mod (https://premamod.wordpress.com/2017/10/10/clevo-pascal-mxm-standard/), this component isn't there either. Does anyone know what this is, and if it can be removed? Or, if this could be taken off and shifted out of the way somehow, or replaced with a smaller equivalent...?
       
      In my disbelief/annoyance/problem solving when trying to push it down, I did notice that the card has a surprising amount of flex in it and it *can* be screwed down almost completely to a level where I feel somewhat comfortable in doing... Though I'd rather not put this strain on the card if there is a way to avoid it.

      Привет. Помогите, мне грустно.
      Существует clevo p150em, недавно обновленный с 7970 до 8970 м (от 150 см)
      Bios, R.2.0 / 1.02.17EC v3b / 1.02.11EC.
      Когда он был установлен 7970 м, в BIOS на линии gpu это было 7970 м. После установки 8970m, NVIDIA пишет вместо 8970m.
      Драйверы на 8970m не установлены, либо синий экран, либо ноутбук замерзает. Windows 10 1713.
      Я пробовал разные версии драйверов, все равно. Что вы посоветуете?
      8970m vbios  VER015.041.000.000.044964 BR44964.009 it s DELL? 
       
      ps. when I bought 7970m for a place of 670m. At 7970m there was also a problem with the drivers, but I somehow skipped it.

      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.
