  1. So my r2's old gpu died and I decided it was a good time to upgrade. Got myself a clevo 8970m on BR44465.003. My laptop posts and I can hear windows starting but no LCD. I ended up trying this card in my 17 (r5) and although my bios can see the card neither atiflash or the device manager will recognize it. I have no idea what to do.
  2. Hey all! About to buy a Dell 780m for my m17x r4 and just wanted to check with you all that it would be compatible with my system. I'm only asking as I bought a Clevo 780m and it wasn't recognised! Thanks!
  3. Ok so I recently bought a 5870M with the right side heat sink on it, and well.. my M17x R2 doesn't even want to boot up with both cards installed. It just turns on, all FX lights turn on, then the screen goes darker but unlit, BUT I can barely see the alien head that shows when the system is started up. Here is a list of things I've done to try to get this working: -Bought a 240 watt AC adapter ✓ -bought a crossfire cable ✓ (one that the seller of the card suggested from Eurocom) -flashed both cards to the latest Vbios ✓ -Flash laptop to A10 Bios ✓ -Cleaned the PCIe slot with compressed are ✓ -tried both cards with out Crossfire cable ✓ -I HAVE ORDERED A GPU FAN- Coming in the mail still- -Take out Bios battery and hold the power button for 30 seconds ✓ -I've even taken out 1 stick of ram and still nothing ✓ -I've tried both cards in the primary slot, and the swapping the cards in a crossfire configuration and nothing (they both work in the primary slot) Would the system as a fail safe not boot with out the second GPU fan installed? As I've said the system turns on, but freezes right at the alien head and the screen stays unlit. Also the laptop came in a non SLI/Xfire setup, just a single 5870M.
  4. Hey guys I was just curios to see if its worth while upgrading to 7970 instead of 675? also from what i've read it sud be a straight plug in and play job after removing drivers. Oh am also aware amd cards use different brackets. Thanks p.s is ebay the only good place to look? :chuncky:
