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

      Hello!
       
      I have recently acquired my Dell Inspiron 15 7000, and I am interested in building an egpu setup for it. It has a USB-C port. Any recommendations/guides out there?
       
      thanks.

      I reversed the input polarity on my m15x jack after a botched psu repair. Computer worked fine, but overall power control is messed up. System only boot on both battery and psu, no battery charge, and a very low battery drain (arround 6wh).
       
      I aways had battery issues whith my 8 years old m15x after my original battery died. Bought a new one two years ago, didn't work. Checked on upower, basically no info on manufacturer, power or history. So i refunded and used the system hooked on the psu as usual. In August i bought a new one, worked flawlessly for a day. The next day the battery died from nowere. Checked upower, bus was ok, battery was charging extremely slowly (6wh), history showed subpar disharge before shutting down. I got mad at this point, decided that psu was to blame. Opened it, checked everything, noticed some wear on the male jack. Resoldered it, connected on computer. Nothing happened, so i checked the voltage. That's when i realised that i screwed up big time. I swaped the positive and negative wires. Decided that one mistake was enough, so i sent my m15x to a trusted repair shop (latter found that they just hooked the battery and gave me back as soon as it booted, they didnt even open it). Got my pc a week later, but the battery didn't charge . Worse, it was slowly discharging (same 6wh as before), and it needed both the psu and the battery to turn on. At 65%, it worked as usual for my college semester, but the battery is dead, and so is my computer. I bellieve i burned some voltage controller or something. I'm pretty competent at soldering thing's (evem smd components) when i know what to do, and i can understand simple circuit's, but when i got my hands on the m15x datasheet i got overblown. I cant make heads or tails about it. I aways lurked this forum and i bellieve your guys are the best when it comes to finding creative solutions to technical problems concerning microelectronics. I followed a guide in this forum as a teenager to upgrade this same computer to a gtx680m, overclocked stuff, got custom bios, and had a lot of fun learning. The m15x is a deprecated platform, but it's a part of my history that i dont want to let go.
      So please guys, help me.
