    M18x R1 Unlocked BIOS for GPU upgrade?

    ah gotcha. well i'm at my wits end with this thing. tired of removing 38 screws to try an resolve this. when i plug and play the cards with windows running, checking for new hardware from the devmgr doesnt pick either card in either slot up, so the drivers naturally wont install anway. When I install the cards with the system off, either 1 card or both, i'll either get just a blank screen before the BIOS screen even appears, or I'll get 5 beeps and sometimes 8 beeps. I've tried clearing CMOS, the Fn trick and everything. I thought I would need an unlocked BIOS to make this work, because I was going off of what the EuroCom website says as far as upgrading. http://www.eurocom.com/ec/upgrade(2,267,0)ec Where it says BIOS it says A05 (Unlocked)

    M18x R1 Unlocked BIOS for GPU upgrade?

    What do you mean by mod the driver? I thought downloading a driver from NVIDIA would work for an NVIDIA product, regardless of what PC build it's in.

    Buying a gaming laptop

    I've had a Dell XPS, and currently have an Alienware M18x. I've had issues with the video cards in both of these PC's. Maybe it's a flaw with Dell, maybe it's just those two specific laptops that have had issues, not sure. I think I'll shy away from Dell from now on. It seems both times I had issues were right after the warranty expired. I even had to go as far as removing the video cards, and "baking" them in the oven. It worked.... for a little while, then I would have to do it all over again.

    M18x R1 Unlocked BIOS for GPU upgrade?

    Surely someone has ran into this issue... These are the two cards I bought to replace my 580m's. (http://www.ebay.com/itm/272484446212?_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT) Tried installing both, cleared CMOS and started PC. Blank screen. Removed one of the cards, same thing. Replaced one of the 580m's, works great. ...I even got so brave and impatient that I loaded Win7 using onboard vid with the laptop still in 38 pieces, installed new cards (plug and play style) then used the DevMgr to scan for hardware changes. It picked up the card and driver install failed of course... When I downloaded the 765M drivers from NVIDIA and tried to install them, it couldn't find any compatible hardware.

    New Monitor

    Looking at purchasing a new monitor. Are 4k monitors worth it? What types of stuff should I look at for a gaming monitor? People mention hz and refresh rates and i get lost haha
  8. I have an M18x R1 that i recently purchased new GPU's for. After I installed them and went to turn PC just a blank screen appears. No BIOS screen or amything. I was told the new cards were compatible. I have A05 BIOS and was replacing 580M's with 765's.

    Best gaming laptop

    Hey guys.. just curious your opinion on best bang for your buck when it goes to gaming laptop manufacturers. Used to have an Alienware that I liked other than the price tag. Used to custom build desktops but just don't have time anymore. Would rather have a powerhouse portable laptop. Thanks Crap... sorry. Just now see this is in the desktop forum.
