    Not sure because every command I ran through nvflash would return a 'No Nvidia display adapters error' when checking the log file generated using a different computer. Every version. Even when just trying to backup the current VBIOS. Pretty much attempted everything I could considering having to work completely blind, and unfortunately don't have access to a programmer. I've since settled on the card just being defective and have sent it back (ordered from eBay shop in China). Will probably try my luck again this time from a different source.

    Yeah stuff like that from China do tend to be defective sometimes, my guess is that they don't always test the parts before selling it in order to cut costs. Hope it gets sorted out for you.

    I suppose that is possible. The original card died due to MOSFET failure. One failed, so I removed it and the card ran on the remaining 2 for awhile (just had to reduce the clocks to avoid black screens when running demanding games), then the remaining ones eventually burned out. I was sure it was something up with the vBIOS since I purchased the replacement from China, but I guess there is no way to know for sure if it's board related until I'm able to test another 980M.

    Are you able to see the VBIOS version in the nvflash log? You might need to flash another VBIOS in order to get the card working in your system. If so you'll probably need to either use a SPI clip and a programmer to do a in circuit programming or desolder the VBIOS SPI flash chip and program it.

    Got a great deal on a Sager/Clevo P870DM-G. Currently I have the P170em with extreme processor and 32gb of ram. Wasn't really looking to upgrade but the deal was just too good. My P170em has the latest prema mod bios which was a great upgrade. How do you rate the Sager standard bios to the baked upgraded bios?

    Well the Sager BIOS is completely standard except for the Sager logo ^^ my BIOS has a lot of new options added and I'm working on my new versions with updated UEFI drivers and modules, updated microcode, ability to change some BIOS settings from within windows, BIOS screenshot support etc and I'm working on kabylake and coffee coffeelake support too ;)


  4. When I modified VBIOSES years ago I did it using a hexeditor so I'm not familiar with that program but I only unlocked core, memory and voltage adjust and increased TDP without any overclocking and then after flashing my modified VBIOS I used overclocking software with profiles so I could change the OC according to my needs.

    When I did this on optimus enabled systems there was only the GPUs SPI chip that I needed to flash, on some systems the system BIOS also contains a NVIDIA VBIOS but I've never had to replace it. There should also be a Intel VBIOS but you don't have to do anything with that.

     

    I know some ASUS laptops with MXM GPUs didn't have the VBIOS on the MXM card so you'd have to first extract it from the system BIOS, modify it, replace it, rebuild the BIOS and then flash the system BIOS.

     

    If you're unsure you should have a SPI programmer a backup of you VBIOS using GPU-Z or something and a sop8 150-mil adapter and some soldering skills, or use a sop8 test clip with the programmer (these can be a pain in the ass to get working and you often have to supply current to the board for it to recognize the chip)

    Hello,

     

    I have a Dell Inspiron 5555 with BIOS A12 and I am missing some options in the advance menu. The BIOS seems to be shared between the 5455 and the 5755, if it helps. Can anyone help me figure a way to have all the options in the BIOS available?

    I have attached the results archive from the backup tool, if it helps

    Thanks in advance!

    This is all I had the time to do now.

  6. Hey y'all! I'm planning on releasing BIOS mods for the newer MSI laptops.

    So I'm looking for some testers to evaluate my mods and give input.

    If you're interested just PM me and we'll take it from there :)

    Just a question, Are you capable of doing coffeelake mods on Z170 clevo boards? That's one thing that would be neat to see.

    Well I know that there's already mods out there, it's by crossflashing a modified TM BIOS on a DM model, these need to be flashed via an SPI programmer though. 

    Hit me with a PM with your model and I'll take a look at what I can do. I'm planning on releasing mods with Coffee lake support but I need a coffee lake CPU to test them first :)

    There are several threads on requesting BIOS modifications here on T | I but I thought another one wouldn't hurt.

     

          Your request should look like:

    • Brand
    • Model
    • Type of modification(For example: Unlocked, added support, Logo, microcode, ME firmware etc

     

    I'll respond as soon as I have time as I'm also currently working on other projects(Requests by PM is also ok)

    If anyone else have the knowledge and time feel free to respond to requests :)

    Correct me if i`m wrong, but the tm1 like all the p870 models suffers from the same hardware mux not being present, resulting in a black screen once u enable the IGPU.

    The IGPU being disconected at a hardware level.

     You are correct! The signal only goes from the dGPU to the screen.

    In other words DON'T enable it! That's why I hide the IGPU options in my mods..

    when I use the dGPU.
    I can use the iGPU connected to the A / C while the dGPU does not, I get BSOD that says video_tdr_failure nvlddmkm.sys

    Aight! Try this: Uninstall intel graphics driver in control panel - restart - get the latest from intel and install - restart - get the latest geforce drivers and check the box "Do a clean install"

    I hope this will help you.

     

    Cheers!

    Right okay that kinda puts me in a rough spot

     

    Am guessing the main question is that Do you reckon the problem is fixable? or is it something that is just looking like a dead-end considering the main-board of the machine, as I have tried everything I know(upping processor core ICCmax and what not)

     

    My timeline for the ability to return the laptop is kinda running out(think I got a 2 weeks or less need to confirm) that's why I wanna know lol. I don't mind waiting if you think its fixable . Thanks.

     

    Also according to John@obsidian on notebookreview, the EDP throttling is a stock feature and cannot be removed(though not sure if this is true because I have seen it get removed in another laptop model by a custom EC:

     

    Hey, I haven't even looked at that problem yet so I don't know if it's fixable.

    Any idea when you will?

     

    Am considering returning the Clevo and just getting something else with similar specs. Its a good laptop but that CPU throttling is a real downer to me especially when its an unlocked CPU not HQ.

     

    But if I am to process the return I need to do so ASAP, Would you mind telling me what time frame you reckon you will work on the bios and see if it can be fixed if not just let me know and I will just process the return. Thanks for your help and quick reply.

    It will be a while, I'm currently finishing up the P7,P8 and will start with P6,P4 after that which will probably be some weeks from now.

    hi baked, can you help me with my blackscreen problem on my p870dmg laptop. Thanks in advance for any reply.

    As I've stated earlier I don't support any vBIOS related stuff at the moment sorry. 

    On 2017-08-03 at 1:07 PM, timbabs1 said:

    @BAKED How is the P650RS-G EDP Other(Current limit throttling according to Intel XTU) stoppage bios mod/unlock coming along?

     

    Any progress?

    I haven't started with the new versions for P6 series yet sorry.

    Baked, when do you think we will have a 2.0 version for the p870dm bios? I realy need those cpu overclock menus. PLS

    Soon ;)

    Hi BAKED!

     

    I've had a stock Clevo P775DM1-G with a 6700k and a GTX 980M from PCSpecialist for about a year. I decided to experiment with some overclocking but to my dismay I'm getting power throttled. PCSpecialist could not provide any unlocked BIOS when asked so my hope stands to you. :)

     

    Do you have an unlocked P775DM1-G BIOS available? I believe it's different from the P775DM3-G, but not entirely sure what the difference is.

     

    Best regards

     

    It's almost done and will be released soon :)

    Hey, guys, I have a question.

    I have Sager laptop. Mother board P65_P67RGRERA (U3E1). Graphics card GTX970m.

    I want to instal Hackintosh but since i7 6700 processor has integrated graphics it is impossible to use Geforce. Can this Bios disable Integrated Intel card so I can use Gforce in side Hackintosh?

    AFAIK you can't disable the IGPU on Clevo systems with optimus, because the signal from the dGPU is routed through the IGPU so disabling IGPU will result in a black screen as no signal from the dGPU to display will be possible. So don't try it.

    I went through this entire thread but found no mention of the P770DM(-G) model. Is there an unlocked bios for this? Also can the vbios version ever cause incompatibilities. Just asking since I have a P770DM-G but it uses a 980m made for the ZM model. Don't fully know what the difference is but it was enough to cause grief trying to get Prema's vbios for it. 

     

    Also do you include a flashing software that has safeguards to help prevent wrong bios flashing? I know prema uses a his own nvflash for vbios but IDK if the same can be done for a system bios.

    Here you go! It's the same BIOS for both.

     I don't support any VBIOS related stuff at the moment so I don't know if there will be any incompabiities or not because I haven't worked with VBIOS for a couple of years.

    I have never had any incompability problems myself between the ZM and DM with Nvidia cards, only AMD. But if you chose to try it do so at your own risk.

    I can make a sript that prevents flashing the wrong BIOS but I don't feel like it's really necessary at the moment :)

    Yh I just got it back and have tested it, unfortunately the issue isn't fixed and I have contacted the engineer but haven't gotten a reply yet.

     

    I will be looking for other options atm and yh hopefully a bios comes out that fixes it 

     

    BTW @BAKED would be nice enough to please have a look at the bios settings or unlocked settings and see if anything can be done. Thanks.

    I will make new versions soon :)
