M15x windows 10 gtx 660m (help please)

Recommended Posts

Hello I have a gtx 660m. I Put it in my m15x with a 1.5mm coper shim. It fit good, also added paste. I have windows 10 and have tried every driver none are working. the eurocam driver I got off from their site for the 660m upgrade starts downloading and 2 minutes into the install, it fails, and an error pops up, "install failed" and that's it. please help :\ NOTE: The 660m is showing up as unknown in the device manager but I can still manage to get the hardware ids.. Also I believe my bois is a08 I downloaded a09 from dell and it just gave me a folder with some files in it no download setup THANKS!!

You need to mod the inf file in the driver folder. The is a guide on this website that you can search for easy enough.

I tried there isn't a very clear guide. When I goto install the eurocam version it gets all the way to downloading the drivers and than the install fails in the middle of downloading them. Does my bios being a08 matter?

Ok so I got It to start installing on one after modifying. At first it wouldn't install and couldn't find a device and now it is and I pressed agree and download, But as soon as it starts installing the installation failed? could this be because I typed something wrong? or is my card doa?

 

Also thank you I hope I can solve this prob.. I'm not sure what to do other than update the bios in one guide it says make sure you have a09 that is why I think it could be that but idk why my divice manager is picking it up as unknown but it still has hardware ids.. my device manager is also doing that with my built in webcam after windows 10

 

I reset my windows 10 and now my card is showing up as a default Microsoft card under display adapters. as soon as I run the NVidia install it removes it from display adapters and puts it under, unknown. and the NVidia installer fails. if I tell Microsoft to find updates automatically it puts it back under display adapters as  default again.. somebody help me :\.

I solved it by deleting windows 10. And using Windows 7. I liked windows 10 setup but everything else sucks, I cant be mad at them though its still in beta stage. Thanks for the help! Fourms here are awesome

      Hey guys, I have an Alienware m14x R2, and I have been trying to get access to the BIOS so that I can change the boot options (Everything is locked, I am unsure if someone set a password of if these are locked by default).I've tried updating the BIOS, and resetting the CMOS and nothing has changed this. Would anyone know if there are other options I can explore? Thank you.

      Hey everyone!  After lots of searching it looks like this is the go-to place for laptop mods online, so I figured this would be the best place to ask something like this.
       
      I picked up a Dell E6530 for basically scrap value, and I love the thing.  Runs Xubuntu great, battery is halfway decent, and I can play 99% of the games I own on it.  My friend on the other hand picked up an E6440 with its silver-ish finish along the back.  As much as I love my 6530 I've gotta say, that thing looks great.
       
      To get to the point now, I was wondering if it's possible for me to polish the top of the lid on my 6530 to have a more silver finish like that (or maybe even a mirror finish if I sand it down with a fine enough grit).  Really what I want to know is if the dark grey part of the lid is actually metal.  I can't seem to get a definitive answer online, and I tried the magnet test on it and it wasn't magnetic at all.  This doesn't necessarily mean it's not metal though, as aluminum isn't magnetic but is obviously a sandable/polishable metal.  One source said the laptop has anodized aluminum parts on it, but they didn't specify whether it was something internal or external.
       
      Can anyone here provide me some insight?  If the grey part is definitely a metal and not a plastic, I think I'm gonna give it a try.  As stated before I got this thing for scrap value, so if in the end it doesn't work out I'm not gonna cry over it or anything.  Still though, I'd rather not run into this blind.  If this is indeed possible though and I can accomplish what I want with a decent looking result, I'll post up some pictures with the method I used for others to do as well.
       
      Thanks in advance!

      Hello,
       
      I have a Dell Inspiron 5555 with BIOS A12 and I am missing some options in the advance menu. The BIOS seems to be shared between the 5455 and the 5755, if it helps. Can anyone help me figure a way to have all the options in the BIOS available?
      I have attached the results archive from the backup tool, if it helps

      Thanks in advance!
