  1. 1080ti fell apart. Can I repair this?

    Those caps are completely unnecessary. You can throw them in the trash and forget about them. They insignificantly reduce voltage ripple on the 12V line and you have way more than you need. A laptop GPU will have around 4 15 uF caps, and you still have 6 330 uF caps for the same purpose. I am more concerned about what damage from bending happened to the card due to the extreme force required to rip the heatsink in half. That should require well over 100 pounds of force, and very likely destroyed the card.
  2. Checksum must be correct or card will not work. For moisture removal heat the core to 100C for at least 5 hours. The old chip is fine because heat from regular use will remove moisture.
  3. It looks to me like your gk106 may have popcorned. It looks like the chip packaging is bulging in the lower right corner at the diagonal capacitor in the last image you linked. Did you prebake the chip at all to remove moisture? If it's not popcorned then you should try to match the hardware ID in vBIOS to what the card now calls itself. I found in optimus mode that you can have them mismatched on maxwell class GPU, but not if the card is the primary GPU. Have you tried the dGPU as primary? If you haven't yet, trying it may give you a blank screen with no way to get the iGPU back to primary without a BIOS flash via programmer. A blind normal flash or cmos battery removal often does not reset all bios settings.
  4. Is my modded inf correct?

    The driver does not install without modding the .inf? Usually desktop cards have their entries in nvdisp.inf.
  5. [HARDWARE MOD]980m to Desktop 980 core upgrade

    Ram size doesn't matter. Desktop 980 is only 4GB anyway. As for the vBIOS rewrite, I don't know how you're going to manage that. The kepler boards used a resistive strap device ID. I don't know how this would work with the 980 core. I'm guessing you'd just remove the strap resistors and hopefully then the core would report.
  6. Looking to part out a P157SM

    Awesome, my "new" laptop will now no longer have missing pieces.
  7. Looking to part out a P157SM

    $70 for the drive is a bit steep for me, so I'm thinking of bidding instead of buyout unless you want to relist. I'd probably never burn a blu-ray, and there are "new" (old but unused) 12.7mm burners on ebay for less. I have had 2 optical drives die so use definitely matters.
  8. Looking to part out a P157SM

    Yeah the HDD/SSD drive caddy would be good to have and I see you listed it. Mainly I want the optical drive bezel. The P150EM bezel does not match at all. The bracket for the single screw to hold the drive in would be helpful as well, although I could make that out of copper flashing. And hell, my optical drive is getting flaky, so the whole optical drive would be nice if you're willing to part with it, especially if it can read blu-ray. idk if you want to relist the caddy with the other parts included or just make another listing, so I've held off buying it for now.
  9. Looking to part out a P157SM

    If you put them up on ebay I will 100% buy them if they're cheap enough. Also this is the link to TI's page if you want to use that: https://www.techinferno.com/index.php?/classifieds/category/2-notebooks-and-components/
  10. Looking to part out a P157SM

    Do you still have the battery and optical drive caddy? I picked up a P157SM-A frame and have everything but those. The battery doesn't need to work. I just need the shell. As for the optical drive all I really need is the bezel, but the fully caddy would be nice to secure the SSD.
  11. Does my m17x R4 meet the 980M requirements?

    The 980m does draw more power than the 7970m, probably around 50% more. The 7970m draws no where near 100W, while a 980m really will draw 100W. Doesn't the m17x R4 already come with a 240W power supply? You should be fine as long as you don't raise the 980m's power limit. Manually updating drivers means you need to change a setup file for the driver which says that installing a driver for your GPU/laptop combination is OK. Since your laptop was never released with the 980m Nvidia does not have it in the list of approved combinations. The modification is easy to do. J95 wrote a guide on how to do the modification here:
  12. Meset only enables flashing the ME FW. You can flash the bios without running meset. Have you tried just flashing the bios?
  13. GK104 and GM204 share the same BGA so physically a 980 core would be compatible, but constructing a vBIOS for the card would probably be impossible. A gtx 770 core should work. You may lose LVDS display output though.
  14. Clevo P150EM - Battery Cell Upgrade Success

    Where do you see $50? The lowest I see is mid $80s. At the time it was difficult to find anything under $100.
  15. P170hm unstable gpu on factory clocks

    The 580m has 4 weak power phases that are barely adequate for the card. You may have lost one or 2, which is why it's ok when underclocked, but not at stock. Unfortunately it's difficult to test if they're working right.
