    M17xR4 upgrade 680m to 1060

    Hi, Could you tell me if the installation of the 1060 incapacitated the integrated intel graphic? or on the contrary it continues working in exchange of graphics by means of f7 ?. Greetings and thank you

    M17X R4 GTX 1060 upgrade

    Hello again, I already have the screen, it is not clear if the cable that originally came with the 3d 120 hz screen serves me or I have to buy another one. Could anyone help me please?. thank you!
  4. Hi, one question I am going to try to update my alienware m17x r4 to a gtx 1060 from an ati 7970. There is one thing that is not clear to me, buy a screen of 120hz 3d second-hand, but it is necessary that I buy an EDP cable or on the contrary the cable that brings the screen serves me ?. A greeting and sorry for my English I am using a translator. A greeting.

    M17X R4 GTX 1060 upgrade

    Hi all. First of all I apologize for my English, I am using a translator. Well I have decided to reflotar this thread because I have decided to update my m17x r4 with ati 7970,16 gb ra y, i73840qm to a 1060. It's been many years and the graphic is already a bit short to play. After having read several threads, everything has become clear to me: -I know I need a 120hz 3d screen. (is on the way). -It is not very clear to me if I can recycle the heatsink or buy a new one. -I need to convert to gpt the windows ssd. -I need bios unlocked yes or no ?, (there is controversy about it), right now I am in A15. -Configure bios UEFI mode and disable fastboot and inherited options. -Once installed windows 10 (Clean installation), use DDU to remove drivers provided by windows. -Download driver and modify .inf file. Well, it is not very clear to me if I can move forward until I have the graph, that is, I can install the screen, modify the bios and format windows to gpt with the hd 7970 and when I have the 1060 change one for another and ready ?. The truth is that I am a little messed up, it is not very clear to me the order of the steps to follow. I have to tell you that before this, the only thing I had done was to change the heat, add ram, format the computer and little else. I know that for some this will be a children's game but for me it is quite complex due to my basic knowledge in software and hardware jejeje. I said to see if someone can give me a more or less strict order of performance. I hope not to disturb anyone, a greeting and many thanks to everyone in advance.
  6. Hello everyone. I'Ve come this far because I have a M17X-R4 since the 2012 and the 7970 is already short, so here I am absorbing all the information I can to take the step to a 1060. I Hope I'm not too heavy and sorry in advance for the English. I'M using a translator. Greetings and thank you for accepting me in the community
