  1. I came across this program " Read & Write Everything" @ https://rweverything.com While looking to raise the thermal throttling on my very old ASUS G51Jx-A1 Notebook PC - Intel Core i7-720QM that throttles at 65 degrees C. It always ran hot. But with this RWEverything I was able to turn the fan on full, constant which helped the throttling but not over 65 degrees. I am looking at this program and it seems complex beyond my knowledge of the internals of PC programs. But I think someone on TI might be able to make some sense or find some use of it. If anyone knows of any bugs or anything about it, good or bad, because I am going to try to investigate it more to see if I can raise the Thermal throttling to about 80. any feedback would be great.
  2. OK! Fixed it, was a problem with the keyboard F7 is dead key. nothing to do with the software or bios mod. I need to buy swick1981 a beer! NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M video card benchmark result - Intel Core i7-3610QM Processor,Alienware M18xR2 (2).pdf
  3. OK I am having the same problem, I flashed with m18xr2-SwicksModv2 all seemed well but now BIOS does not detect the GTX 970M 6GB x 2 in sli and they were running fine on the m18xr2-SwicksModv1. All was going well until I upgraded to win 10 and the cards seemed a little slow so I tried to go back to win 7 and something didnt work out right and I lost everything just everything! But Swicks bios were still intact and did complete op install and seemed back to normal, all well and good until m18xr2-SwicksModv2 flash and no graphic card undetected. When I hit fn/f7 nothing seems to happen, I hit f10 save and reboot and the cards aren't there. The drivers that were running were the 353.62-notebook-win8-win7-64bit-international-whql version, but I do remember editing them and now I cant find what to edit them with, but I still do not see the cards in device manager. There are just too many variables.

    Change Savegame Folder

    Thanks for the reply Sh1nRa358 , I was wondering if anyone else was concerned what with all the SSDs being installed as primary drives if it was an issue. But if its not that serious I won't worry about it any more.

    Change Savegame Folder

    Does any one know if it is possible to change the save game folder for FO4 or Skyrim to another HDD so I don't have so many writes and deletes on my SSD? My Samsung SSD 850 EVO 500g is at 1.85tbs written on it. I read some articles that an SSD has limited writes that it can handle. I also read another where they tested the writes and over writes on them and it looked like I wouldn't have to worry about it in my lifetime. Any info from the Wizards that read this would be much appreciated. http://www.anandtech.com/show/8747/samsung-ssd-850-evo-review/4

    Alienware m18xr2 video card upgrade to 970m

    Yuval Vilensky I think the single card should be on the left where the single fan is and you need the proper heat sink. My alienware m18x r2 came with a single 660m and it was on the left. I hope this helps. Also the m18r2 is not supposed to have the a12 bios but the a11 is the last bios for it.

    Fighting the heat in notebooks

    Thanks for that fan info killerii, but thats alot of dust, I started using vent filters on my laptops and cleaning the fan has been alot less in dust and frequency. My Alienware M18x 18.4 hasn`t run hot at all but my Asus G51Jx can heat up a cold cup of coffee in a 1/2 an hour.

    Alienware® M18x R2

    Hello, I am new to this site and also new to modding my Oct. 2012 Alienware M18xR2 /Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3610QM CPU @ 2.30GHz /Intel HM77 (Panther Point) /6xPCI Express x1, 2xPCI Express x8, 2xPCI Express x16 /8192 MB800.0 MHz (DDR3-1600 / PC3-12800) /2x NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M [DELL] no SLI /Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium (x64) Build 7601. This Laptop has served me very well, never had a problem, I play Skyrim, Fo3, Fonv, all heavily modded But now Fo4, is running slow and stuttery. Ignorantly I purchased the 2nd GTX 660M and installed it thinking I would double my video graphics to play Fo4 on medium. The GTX 660M is not Sli Capable. So I purchased GTX 970M 6GB on Ebay [ Ignorantly ]. Now I can disassemble and assemble my AW18 without the video, I even remember the screws I used to forget! When I install the GTX 970M I get a black screen and a bunch of beeps and am unable to go into the set up menu. Only ctrl+alt+del resets the beeps. Can Win 7 run the GTX 970M? The computer runs great. The warranty ran out this past Oct. So I dont have to worry about voiding it. any help would be much appreciated. I did have some electronics training back in 1981 in the USMC, they say I am a small missile tech. but I have a different opinion. lol
