  1. No post Power on, lights on fans on black screen no backlight Beeps x8 and repeats I have the M18R2A03WIN bios for the blind flash I also still have m18xr2-SwicksModv2 for the upgrade I have not tried to downgrade yet the 980m is in right now I do have a 280m that I can put in is place.
  2. I have a M18X R2 running windows 7 with a11 unlocked bios with 980m. I have been running without an issue for over a year. I just installed EVGA precision Xoc to check fan speeds and temps and it was running fine until I restarted. Now I get 8 beeps at start up and can not get into bios. I found out that EVGA precision will affect a number of Alienware laptops, m17x r3, r4 m18x r1, r2, 17 r1, 18. I have read that it affects the bios, vbios, and display. I have removed the ssd and removed the installation for EVGA. I am in need of help to fix my new paperweight. Thanks
  3. I did unlocked bios and have the 980m with modified drivers for the 980m works great Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  4. I had 2 260 m Nvidia graphics cards go bad so I upgraded to 2 285 m Nvidia graphics card now I cannot get it to do SLI. I have changed out the cable to the one that came with the cards instead of the one that I was using with the 260. Any help will be appreciated Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk

    M18X R2 GPU Upgrade

    I don't think you need the modified drivers for Windows 10 that's how my laptop originally was sent I got it used but I needed Windows 7 for my 3D printing scanning and art programs Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk

    M18X R2 GPU Upgrade

    I have a single 980m. Your heat sink brackets and everything should work including your SLI cable. Are you going to be running Windows 7 or Windows 10. To run Windows 7 you will need the unlocked a 11 bios and modified NVIDIA drivers. Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
