    Alienware 17 780m Display driver crashing

    Well I Just got some sorta good news. Today after booting up the computer the fans spun and then the whole computer crashed and displayed this error (attached) So now I'm thinking it must be Intel related.... very strange.... Thanks! Edit - it says: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (Smb_driver_Intel.sys)

    Alienware 17 780m Display driver crashing

    I'm not sure how to uninstall my graphics driver, I also don't think that would be a good idea because this laptop has no integrated graphics. The 3d screen I have runs at 120hz and the integrated graphics is not capable of running it. Therefor in safe mode the graphics card HAS to be running or the computer would display nothing. Thanks for your help!

    Yes I tried a couple of older drivers, I have no way of testing the card in another machine but after running it in safe mode and having no problem it leads me to believe it must be software related. Is there a topic here that explains how to install the stock Vbios? Thanks.

    Alienware 17 780m Display driver crashing

    Alright I just completed the clean install per the tutorial and the issue still occurs. Edit: Just started the computer in safe mode and the issue did not occur so it only happens in the full version of windows. I'm running Windows 8.1 64 bit by the way. Thanks.

    I did change the core voltage, I believe my power supply is powerful enough to do so.(I'll re install nvidia inspector and make sure I put it back to stock) I will also try a clean driver install and report back Thanks.
  8. Hello, I have slv7's Vbios installed. I've had it installed for a while (months) and have had no problems. Recently within the past 3 days every time I start my computer, after everything boots up and loads about 30 seconds later the GPU fan ramps up all the way and the computer freezes and then the screen flashes and then comes back on and says my display driver has crashed after that happens everything runs normal for the rest of the time I have the computer running. I'll upload the exact Vbios I'm using. I do NOT own it**** Nvidia GTX 780m - 'OC edition' - rev02.zip Here are my specs - Alienware 17, i7 4800mq, gtx 780m, 16gb ram, 3d screen. other possibly useful information - Driver I am running 347.52 (have tried other to correct the problem with no luck) I have messed around with nvidia inspector and MSI afterburner I have over clocked further that the Vbios does for a short period of time (but I ran an external fan while I overclocked) Let me know If you need any other, Thanks!

    Survivor games - Day Z or Infestation?

    I play both games, Infestation seems to have been improved A LOT lately. DayZ however, I would like my money back... there are so many problems with that game and it just seems like it isn't going anywhere fast. I mean seriously it has been in beta FOREVER! Whenever I get online I feel like I am just wasting my time....
