Replacing graphics card for MS-1761 laptop - need help

Recommended Posts

Hey there,

I have purchased a Force 1761 (MS-1761) laptop from xoticpc.com in 2011, but now the video card need replacement.


i7-2630QM, GTX 570M, 8GB RAM

The person in the repair shop said they can't replace the GPU however I started reading and while I found some people having problems with upgrading (especially with 770,780M cards) I have also read good things about 870M.


"Yes, the GTX900M Series runs without any problems in the MS-1761 Barebone. This Series works in all MSI Barebones." (source: http://forum.techinferno.com/msi/10710-gt780dx-upgrade-gtx-9xxm.html)

Can you confirm that this is the case? If yes, would 870 and 970 both work?

Or is there other or better options?

Thanks a lot for any help

GTX 970M works very well in this Barebone,GTX 870M don`t work.

All Keplercards on GK104 Chip like GTX 680M/GTX780M/GTX870M/GTX880M and all Quadro on this Chip are not working.

Only GTX 765M and GTX 770M on Kepler GK106 are working in this Barebone,GTX 765M needs modified Driver.

The best Power for your Money you get with GTX 970M

That sounds good Bloetschkopf.

Does the vid card need to be Clevo or is there any sort of restrictions which 970M should I buy?

After a brief search I have found this: Nvidia GeForce GTX 970M 6GB DDR5 for Clevo MSI Alienware M18x M17x r4 in stock | eBay

I also saw that people were opting for the GT72 MXM Upgrade Kit. Is this a better choice?

Also would I need to do anything about the cooling or the drivers?

Thanks a lot for helping me :)

The Card must be from Clevo or MSI,i think Dell Cards are not staring.

If you can flash the Vbios before you install the Card you can also use Dell.

For the Clevo Card you must modify the Driver INF,it is very easy.

No Problem with cooling in this Barebone.

      The computer I used was '' Lenovo Y510P ''. There is a '' Nvidia GT755M [SLI] '' as a display card. I have tried both ways of downloading the video card driver from both GeForce Experience and Nvidia driver site. Both kinds of graphics cards are starting to update. Later, the 'graphic driver is installed' part of the screen goes and never comes again. I can not enter Windows when I turn off the computer. I have to take format from scratch.

      After formatting, Windows automatically loads a graphics card driver in 2017, trying to update the driver again, it stays black on the screen again. I have to format again.

      With DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller) program, I deleted the old video card driver and updated it again. But I met the same problem.

      I communicated with Nvidia and stated that I had such a problem. They asked me not to install the 388.13 video card driver. That graphics card driver has been loaded without any problems. But I have the same problem with all the video card drivers out there.
      NOTE: This problem only happens on Windows 10. I can update the display board without any problems in operating systems like Windows 8,8.1.
      NOTE: I have been having this problem for about 2 months, before I could update my display card in Windows 10 without a problem.

      The driver I am currently using is: 388.13

      Sup everybody
      A few months back, I bought an Alienware GTX 780m to replace my ASUS GTX 460m that was in my ASUS G53JW laptop. I had zero knowledge or experience, but thanks to all the guides you wrote, the card immediately worked after flashing an ASUS GTX 780m vbios onto it. The fans were controlled, and my graphics performed many times better than it did before. The only issue was that HDMI stopped working.
      At the time, I didn't need HDMI, but now I do. Can you help me out?

      Published on Dec 6, 2016 I have seen a lot of people online lately asking questions and wondering if it is possible to have an external graphics setup via thunderbolt for an HP Spectre (Product name:HP Spectre Notebook Product number: W2K28UA#ABA). In general, i want to show an eGPU setup via any thunderbolt 3 connection. In this video i will show how to successfully setup and run an eGPU with 3 main components. Keep in mind that if you are going to use the Akitio PCIe thunderbolt 3 expansion box like i did, you WILL NOT be able to fit full length graphics cards, they must be half length and up to full height double width. 

      Akitio Thunderbolt 3 PCIe expansion box: (around $260)

      EVGA NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950 Graphics Card: (actually around $200 - i said $300 in the video so thats a plus)

      Power Supply EVGA 430 w: (around $25)

      Also, here is a link below to download the Geforce Experience for driver installation and updates.

      Grand total, just shy of around 500 bucks give or take shipping costs. A bit steep considering that the majority is spent on the expansion box however, it is good to have the freedom to expand upon mobile hardware. Its also important to note that when i clocked the stock GPU it barely ran on the same program. it scored a mere 2400 as compared to the eGPU setup which scored over 9000, equating to roughly a 450% increase in raw graphics capability.

      If you have any questions please ask away.

      I have been playing overwatch like crazy the past 2 weeks on my m17x r4 with 680M. Unfortunately since yesterday i am getting BSODs anytime i try to even access the dedicated 680M GPU. Starting any game or even starting the nvidia control panel and going to the 3D settings which renders the nvidia logo will cause a BSOD. I can't even downlock the GPU, everytime i try in nvidia inspector, it BSODs.

      I have tried reinstalling the driver, upgrading the driver, downgrading the driver, starting in A/C power both with and without battery, starting in battery only, shutting it down and leaving it for about 12 hours and nothing seems to fix this.

      Here is the imgur album of my BSODs (getting different numbers each time): http://imgur.com/a/wwRZp .

      If this is indeed graphics card failure, is there anyway i can get this repaired? I know i'm out of warranty, but does dell do repairs for payment? Unfortunately I'm a student at the near end of my studies and i'm flat broke so buying a new card is out of my budget [Around 200$].

      Thanks in advance for any assistance you can offer me!
