    Does anyone know how to remove the graphics card whitelist from a Dell M6600 bios?  If so I'd be very grateful.  I am trying to make my Quadro K3100m work with my laptop and it freezes at the blue windows loading window.

     

    Here is a link to the newest bios for the M6600:

    Sorry a little bit late but did you try resetting the bios to default, or even try unplugging the CMOS battery for up to 1 minute?

     

    I recently help my friend upgrade his laptop m6700 from firepro m6000 to gtx 780m (dell alienware version). It was black screen and led flashing at the beginning, but after clearing CMOS it boots and now it was running like a charm.


  2. Hello folks,

    I have a m6600 laptop with i7-2760qm, 8gb ram and a firepro m8900 gfx. I'm looking for a good gfx upgrade for better gaming performance (especially fallout 4). I've locked down on two candidates: FIrepro M6100 and Quadro k4000m. Here's the ebay links for both. The seller assured me that the cards will be compatible with my laptop.

    K4000M: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/HP-Dell-M660...512594?hash=item25c38bdad2:g:uzYAAOSwi0RX0AnA


    I would like to hear some great advices from all you pros, especially if you have hands on experience on either cards in your m6600 lappy:

    1. I wonder if m6100 would be an easier option for my lappy since it's AMD product like my m8900

    2. I wonder if I go k4000m do I need to change my x-bracket, rearrange thermal pads or even need to change the heatsink (sorry I haven't changed a laptop gfx before)

    I'm in favor of k4000m since it has twice the video memory, more ROPs and TMUs which is great for gaming. M6100 may run a bit cooler and has more OC potential (it has 1050mhz gpu base clock vs 600 for K4000M). All in all, I'm choosing between an underclocked GTX 660 and a HD 7790, though I could bring the K4000M clock up a bit. But Nvidia cards are more optimized for gaming. What's your thought folks?

     

    Of course if you have better options especially if there's anyone has upgraded to gaming cards like GTX 680M, HD 7970M or 760M, 765M, 675M, etc I'm eager to hear from you folks.

    Thanks for your inputs!
