Hello guys, how are you? I got today a new graphics card for my Alienware 17 R1 (2013). The newer card is a gtx 970m. Before, the Alienware had no dedicated graphics card, but only the integrated Intel HD 4600 from processor. After I put the new card on laptop, I realized that the laptop wont turn on anymore. If I remove the graphics card, laptop turns on normally. Another thing that I noticed, is that with graphics card inside when I plug AC adapter, the blue led of it (AC adapter) turns off. Without the card, this behavior dont happens. I already reseat the card a lot of times without success. My Alienware is a R1 Model (2013) or M17x R5. PSU: 240w Processor: 4910mq RAM: 32GB Battery: OK. Graphics Card: Alienware GTX 970m 6gb - G16E-A1 Bios: A14 (lastest from Dell WebSite) I dont have another card to test. Thank you guys. I hope anyone can help me.

But when i push fn + f5 and change into the optimus mode,the screen is flickering and glitching.... like this videoeven i pulled out the dgpu and power on with integrated gpu,, it has the same situation.i flash the bios a14 and a13 but it isnt solved.i dont know why... i think it is related to the intel GPU...Is there anybody who know the source of the problem?
New BIOS got released for the Alienware 17, unfortunately Dell didn't provide at change log, at least not yet... let's hope they don't fall back on old habits and stop providing any information... Here's some information about what has changed: - Intel GOP driver update - some stuff that I think is XTU related - a few minor other adjustments - EC update, a lot of changes, probably also an adjustment of the fan algorithm as in the AW18 A03 bios. >> Download link (direct) <<
