Hello forum, i have a problem.
I own a P370EM it had a 7970m but its not working anymore. I bought a GTX 770M to replace it. But after changing the cards, after POSTing the screen goes white even though the pc boots into windows normally. What may be the issue?
I'm going to be upgrading my Alienware M18x R1 with a GTX770m I purchased from ebay; 770m has a Dell P/N: HW6C9 for reference. I have a couple questions about performing this upgrade:
-Is the /unlocked/ version A05 bios necessary? I am receiving 8 beeps on startup with the dell factory A05 bios installed w/ the 770m
-Is a vBIOS flash required for basic functionality and driver installs?
-If so, is there a link to a compatible vBIOS for this card, finally, a guide for installing the new vbios?
Any help is vastly appreciated, I've done some homework but I am new to upgrading MXM modules on laptops.
I've run into a bit of a problem - I knowingly bought a 770M to replace the 660M I had previously installed in my M17R4, having done a bit of reading on the trouble it was to install - the clincher being that instead of the recommended 680M being ~£120 more expensive than the 770M I got for £160.
I noted that I would need to flash an unlocked BIOS onto my board, but underestimating how difficult it would be to procure one. This site seems to be the only site hosting one.
I followed the guide on this subforum as far as I could, but I don't seem to be allowed to download the BIOS itself, I'm assuming because I haven't posted enough.
My question is, to save me from wasting £160, does anyone know of any alternative links or would anyone be able to upload the file for me? I mean no disrespect of course, this seems like a marvellous and useful site, and were there such a thing as a premium account I would definitely pay for the privilege to download the required BIOS file.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
As the title say i have an old m15x with a 920xm, 8gb ram and just got a 770m to boost gaming perfomace but the drive wont install.
When I run GPU-Z I see the attached image which are all the correct stats of the card but not really the card and HWINFO64 is showing that its the correct card but again not anything else.
I've read about .inf issues and about vbios flashing but dont know how to do either or which would be best to try.
Any ideas which (if either) could be my problem and how to do either task or how to go about more trouble shooting. Any more info required just ask. Any and all help much appreciated.
I just want to play total warhammer:-(
