  1. Hi guys! I have an AW 17 R1 just instaled gtx 980m there. And i got CODE 43 error. I done everything as normal. New thermal pads and good thermal pads. (done it billions of times) I checked this gpu in other dell laptop and it was just fine but in aw 17 things looking strange. The gpuZ cant read vbios version information but can dump rom. Also it doesn't show videocard memory information. I tried to flash it with stock clevo vbios (card is from clevo) but have same result. What may cause this error? Thanks for your's advice!
  2. Hello everybody! Can anyone please share the biso dump for asus g752vl board with gtx 965? Thank you!
  3. Hello! I'm facing some problems with AMD FirePro M6000 in my AW m17x r4. I got this card from Dell precision m6700 and it was fully working. I installed it in to my aw m17x r4 it can detect it as amd gfx in bios but the gpu fan is not spinning and its get very hot! When laptop boots the fan turns on for a couple seconds and turns off. (I checked many times the fan connector and it's totally fine) I can manually turn it on in windows with HW info. I tried to flash different vbios's from techpowerup collection but any of them didn't turn the fan on. I had same problem when i installed gtx980m from aliexpress to the aw m17x r4 but after flashing vbios from TI fan started working just as it should! I attach the dump i took from the card before flashing i think it's original dell vbios for firepro m6000. Also aida64 detects it as 7870 but windows says it's 7800 and GPUZ says it's cape verde... By the way the aw m17x r4 runs unlocked a11 bios from this site. If anyone knows how to solve this problem please respond. Regards! Cape Verde.rom
  4. Try to flash enother vbios. Also you should check this card in another laptop.
  5. I faced same problem when I installed gtx980m in to my m17x r4 but when I flashed unlocked bios and disabled Intel HD this problem gone and now gtx980m is giving a full output of performance. Also you should inspect the thermal paste and cooling pads. It may overheat in the are where is nivtheal sensor and throttle.
  6. I owned 17r2 with gtx970 (bga). That was my first Alienware previously I owned Asus rog laptops. But as I can tell I haven't met crappiest laptop than r2! After upgrading to win 10 I had a problem that my laptop didn't want to shut down completely from time to time I had to hold power button to turn it off. The battery died with no reason at 12%. And the temps)) even after repasting with Arctic mx4 I faced CPU throttling))). As I think modern laptops with all chips on bga are crap! If something fails it's very hard to troubleshoot and in many ways it will lead you to the motherboard replacement. And even used one from China will cost you almost like same used laptop on eBay))) So no repairs no modding and no update for you. Now I bought Alienware m17x r4 and put there a gtx980m with no issue! And I will not switch to any "new" laptop without mxm. And the funniest thing is that my m17x r4 will kick ass of any new gaming laptop for around 1k$!
  7. Hello Prema! Can you please make a mod bios for alienware 15/17 R2 (2015) with RAID option selection enabled. A lot of people will thank you for it! Regards!
  8. Thanks a lot! I know that a little left or right it is an output positive circle. I will have to do something with my psu.
  9. Hi everybody! Can anyone measure what is the voltage on a central (smart pin) on 240w power supply I have a 180w and it shows 0.5 - 0.6 volts on it. I also received a 240w psu but the voltage on center pin is 19.5 volts and i'm afraid to use it because I think the voltage difference is to high and I can burn something in my lappy. Somebody please measure the voltage on your 240w psu! Thank You!
  10. Hello everybody! I need a bottom base for alienware 17 R2 (amplifire one) The part number is 0tvfyj. I searched every where I could an there is no sign of it. The part may be new or used! If some one know where to find it please let me know. Or if someone have one for sale please pm. Thanks! P.S. The part I need is attached on photo.
  11. Hello people! I'm on my way to start an egpu projects. Now I have gdc beast v8 with dell da-2 and also I borrow from a friend an alienware graphic amplifire. As dell says it is external pci-e port I started research as it is all in one egpu solution designed to be maximum user friendly if you have alienware laptop. But i'm wondering that it has fancy port and cable for connection which makes it unusable with not alienware laptops. But I think it's cable and port is just mini pci-e port but with strange shape. As it comes with 460 watt power supply and it's plug and play it is good solution with nice build quality I think it's possible to change it connection to some sort as gdc or pe4 are using to make it plug and play. For now i stuck with pin layout of its connector... I was looking for spare cable to cut it in one end and try to solder it to a mpci-e connector but I could not find one on the internet. It only comes with amplifire. I need someone to help me with this project. I'm from Ukraine and i'm limited by my location very much. We don't have a lot of stuff on local market and only way to search is google. But I could not find anything at this time. As I have an amp which is not mine I cant do much in modding but I can do photos and experiments. I cant purchase whole setup at the moment because it's expensive. But if someone can help me finding the cable for it it will be half of a job. I have skills and tools for soldering smd rework and programming so if I will be able to make a working connector it would be a grate egpu solution. Also if some one can provide me any technical documentation like service manuals pin layout etc. It would be grate either.
