  1. I have asked Svet on the MSI forum, and he told me that a modified vBIOS would not be a solution in this case, and that chances to brick my card would be very high. I trust what he told me, but I would like to have a second opinion on this if anyone is willing to. Thank you, Fox
  2. Hello again, I’ve installed a GTX 660M GPU from an Alienware in my custom laptop based on the MS16F2 platform, after my original GPU died. Since then I’ve been having a compatibility problem between them, the screen is black in Windows after installing the Nvidia driver. I've asked everywhere for a solution to my problem described in detail here: http://forum.techinferno.com/general-notebook-discussions/9527-gtx-660m-black-screen-after-installing-driver.html The few people that answered in the forums and the people I have bought my laptop from told me me that a possible fix to my problem could be „flashing the GPU with a compatible vBIOS”. I have asked Svet on the MSI forum, and he told me that this would not be a solution in this case, and that chances to brick my card would be very high. I trust what he told me, but I would like to have a second opinion on this if anyone is willing to. Also, if anyone has a solution, I would be more than grateful. Thank you, Fox
  3. Thanks to an user on the MSI forum and to the people at Power Notebooks, I identified the problem as being a BIOS incompatibility between the MSI motherboard and the Dell MXM. I have a MS-16F2-ID1 platform, with this BIOS: BIOS Version: E16F2IMT.300 BIOS Build: 05/31/2011 EC Version 16F2EG61 Ver4.22 EC Build 04/21/2011 and a Dell (Alienware) GTX 660M video card with original VBIOS that are currently not fully compatible with each other. By looking around I have found: - the VBIOS for the Dell GTX 660M here: VGA Bios Collection: Dell GTX 660M 2048 MB | techPowerUp - a slightly more recent BIOS for my PowerPro R 11:36-560 MSI 937-16F231-004 here: MSI Global - The best gaming gears maker in the world - that the MSI GE60 0ND laptop used to come with the GTX 660M GPU with its BIOS here: MSI Global - The best gaming gears maker in the world 64 If I got this right, for that the two components to work I have to either find, create, or find somebody that can modify the vBIOS of the DellGTX 660M GPU that would make it compatible with my laptop. Or, I could change the BIOS of my laptop in such a way that it would ID the 660MDell MXM. This is where I am right now and I have no idea what to do next. If anyone can help me make my laptop work again, I would greatly appreciate it. Any help of any kind is more than welcome. Thank you, Fox
  4. Hello everyone, I own a PowerPro R 11:36-560 (MSI 937-16F231-004) based on the MS-16F2-ID1 platform. My old GPU died and a while ago I received a Dell (Alienware) used GTX 660M from an acquaintance. Since then I am struggling to make them work together. When I got it, I installed the GPU with the modified heatsink, started Windows and everything looked OK. Then I installed the Nvidia drivers and after reboot, right after the loading screen, I got a black screen (with the screen still lit and hearing the Win log in sound in the background). Since then I have tried everything I could think of to make them work. I finally connected the laptop to an external monitor and it worked with the Nvidia driver installed. I also tried modding the Nvidia driver, following the indications here: The Official MSI GT60/70 970m/980m Upgrade Thread | NotebookReview Unfortunately, it did not solve the problem.

I searched and read numerous threads and that got me to post here for help. If anyone could help me make my laptop work again, I would greatly appreciate it. Any help of any kind is more than welcome. Thank you, Fox
  5. I have connected the laptop to an external monitor and it works with the Nvidia driver installed. The laptop screen works just fine without the drivers. I would really appreciate some help. I've been searching for a fix for days now. Thx, Fox
  6. Hello, I own a custom laptop on an <st1:stockticker w:st="on">MSI</st1:stockticker> 16F2 platform. Few weeks ago my GTX 670M card died. Out of better options, I bought an used GTX 660M from an acquaintance. I had it installed, started Windows and everything looked OK. Then I installed the Nvidia drivers and after reboot, right after the loading screen, I got a black screen (with the screen still lit). I went into Safe mode and uninstalled the driver. Then installed again and got the same result. Went into Bios, change settings, tried resetting <st1:stockticker w:st="on">CMOS</st1:stockticker>, nothing worked. Installed Windows 7 Ultimate again, then Windows 8, same thing. I also tried modding the drivers, still nothing. I have no clue what is wrong. If you have any idea, please help me with this. Thank you, Fox
