  1. Hi guys, been reading the forum A LOT. As you know the 675m was a victim of NVIDIA´S faulty drivers and stopped working. After lots of unsuccesful tries, different spells, witchcraft and sorcery, I decided to go for the ONLY solution which is... GPU REPLACEMENT. Now, im going back to desktop so performance is not an issue, i just want to spend as less money as possible. Which are my options in terms of compatibility ??? I`ve read a lot about people moving to 680m ( almost 600 USD on ebay) but not about 770m ( 400 USD on EBAY) what´s the deal?? isn´t 770m compatible ? Best regards and help you can help me choose the replacement ! Greetings from Argentina! PD: Sorry for the bad english

    Ive done that already. The next thing to try I think is to flash VBIOS.

    DAMN YOU MSI - 675M REPLACEMENT - 770m or 680m ?????

    So far..\none. Got the GPU. Placed all the thermal pads and installed it with no problems. The device manager found it so I was kinda happy. Then when installing the Nvidia drivers I had to wrestle a bit because I didn't download the INTERNATIONAL version and I had the modified INF for that one (at that point I hadn't realized that) So after that I could proceed with the install of the drivers... BUTTTTT as they're not "CERTIFIED"DRIVERS I had to boot windows from the advanced restart so I could install NOT CERTIFIED drivers. After thath the install went ok. The 770m finally appeared in the device manager, but is having some issues with the HD4000. So, I decided to try the unlocked BIOS ( I got this and the the VBIOS for the 770m from SVET at HQ MSI forums....) After unlocking the bios HUNDREDS of new options appeared but so far haven't been able to use the 770m. My good friend BUGII is giving me a GREAT HAND at this, we could say he is a LONG DISTANCE TECHNICIAN (?) and supervises everything I do on the MSI. I think its just a matter of time before I have th 770m up and running, its just a software issue. I'll keep you all updated. If you have any suggestions we're listening! Best regards!!! Alex

    DAMN YOU MSI - 675M REPLACEMENT - 770m or 680m ?????

    UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I replaced the 675m with the 770m clevo. Placed the thermal pads and everything. Booting, no problems! The system was able to find the gpu as "Microsoft Display .....". At that point I was jumping with excitment. Downloaded the 337.88 nvidia drivers and the modified Inf. UNLUCKILY... everything went downhill from here. Tried to Install the nvidia drivers and as expected "no compatible device hardware was found" sign appeared . The temporary "c:\nvidia\....." was created and I was prepeared to replace the modified inf. The thing is the modified inf was named nv_dipsi.inf and didn´t find that file name in the NVIDIA forlder. There is a file named "nv_disp.inf" . I tried renaming the file, copying the conten from the modified to the other.... and such. This time when installilng, instead of "no hardware found" I got "required files for installation missing" . So , i supposed the *.INF worked at some level, but was still unable to complete installation. So Im at a dead end and need your help guys! I can send u whatever files or system information u require in order to get this 770m working. Any chance I should flash vbios?? Best regards!!!!

    Did you get the BLUE ONE? I was talking with Bugii and it seems he had no problem with 770m on his laptop. Could you send me the link to both the GPU´s you bought?? the 770m and the 2gb from Dell ?? Thanx a lot man!! I was just about to buy the 770m but now that you post this... im getting a bit scared...

    DAMN YOU MSI - 675M REPLACEMENT - 770m or 680m ?????

    Thanx a lot for your answer Bugii !!! I own a GT70 444US by the way I just want to replace the gpu, so that I can sell it, but has to have a decent gaming GPU so that it stands out from regular laptops. Nvidia GeForce GTX 770M 3GB DDR5 for Clevo MSI alienware upgrade monkey U say that "should" work on my laptop? It´s a lot of money and i´m a bit scared of making a wrong choice since I´m a noob in this area. The different achitecture wouldn´t be a problem here ? I mean, 675m is fermi and 770m is kepler... the heatsinks will fit?? I know that getting the GPU replacement is only HALF the work , i have to do the proper driver install and for what i´ve read is not an easy task... Sorry if seem so doubtufll and thanx again for your time and answer! Alex.

    MSI GT70 0ND - Upgrading Video card

    Hi guys, any news on this??? Im looking to replace my 675m too, and I´m between 770m / 680m . 680m seems to be the SAFE choice, but it´s really expensive in comparison to 770m. Could you fix this issue?
  19. Hi everybody! I've been experiencing some issues with my GTX675. While playing some games it randomly crashes making a really strange noise, then crashes to BSOD and showing a VIDEO TDR FAILURE. I've repasted just in case it was a heat issue, but no luck. Notebook works fine, except when gaming on 675M. Surfin' arround I found that you can find the "dump" file of the BSOD in order to see which driver was involved in the crash. I've uploaded the dump files here just in case one of you guys can "READ" it and tell me exactly what the problem is, because I can't figure it out... https://mega.co.nz/#!HA8lGRYI!D-poUCUNBG2MSNr31BOHcA8wqLuCDm6zFOYWRLhsGHk Later on, after doing alll the clean installs and all the solutions mentioned here an on other forums, i´ve installed MSI Afterburner, just to check temperatures, and let me tell you they´re just fine, 70ºC on full load (only playing diablo 3 so far...) The thing is got the log from afterburner which records events and data almost every minute. My surprise was when suddenly the % of GPU usage went from 90/100% to 0,4268790897.000 or some number like that and the log ENDS. Don´t have to be a scientist to know something is really f#cked up in here, hope it´s not a HARDWARE problem because i´ve been surfing the web and the replacement for this VGA is arround 600 USD and no guarranties it will work. Best regards! Alex
