Dear modders, Hope you all are doing well. I wished to ask if someone could guide me for flashing a vbios to the GTX 970M 6GB for to be installed on the MSI GT-683 laptop (with modded GTX 560M heatsink). I need to know how to get a display to be able to flash (also, flash with what software?) if the gtx 970m is of clevo (is the IGPU supposed to work? do i need an unlocked laptop bios?) I intend to buy this GTX 970M : https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000264805962.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.0.0.62d77e93DGQl5O&algo_pvid=bccc80d9-9944-4dc3-a1e6-ef3d45bda0e3&algo_expid=bccc80d9-9944-4dc3-a1e6-ef3d45bda0e3-5&btsid=12b502b9-dbe1-4c35-be48-930446a31235&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_3,searchweb201603_53 Please help it will be of great service to me.

Hi, Looking for advice, on a few points..... Just upgraded my Medion Erazer X6819 (MS16F2) - MS GT683 graphics from a GTX 570m 1.5gb to a GTX970m 6gb all seems ok apart from my Drivers are on 353.54 - tried removing and updating but just returns to this driver version But what i really need advice on is my CPU upgrade - i currently have an i7 2670QM @ 2.2Ghz G2 socket I have been looking at either 3940XM or 3840QM - not sure if these would fit and work ok or if there would be a better option - they seem to have the same socket - so i'm wondering what advice you could give me and what i might possibly need Thanks Mako
Hi, hoping to get some help with my laptop as this seems to be the most active forum for these old laptops. Some background : I have been having issues with the bios on my laptop for some time, the boot order selection screen decided to populate itself with many of the same option as seen below in the picture I figured that returning to the optimized defaults would reset the boot options, but it has no effect. I have also cleared the CMOS by removing the power from the backup battery to the mother board and holding the power button to drain whatever was left. No dice. Eventually I decided that flashing the bios would be a good idea, it wasn't. I created a freedos bootable cd ( cd because for whatever reason my laptop would not boot from any windows/dos based usb, linux images boot fine) and flashed the bios provided from msi's website for this laptop. The flash went fine, but upon rebooting the bios were not fixed. After another boot the laptop's power button would just flash, not booting into anything or spinning the fans. Frustrated I left the laptop alone for a week. I have decided to start working on it again, I cleared the CMOS like before a loh and behold the laptop booted into the bios and then into a bootable cd! Yippie! After some rebooting it became clear that the laptop would not boot into the bios any more. So what do I decided to do? Clear the cmos again as it seems to be the thing preventing a good boot.... this worked 3 times. Current status: As of right now the laptop refuses to boot into bios, it just sits at a blank screen, but the power button is not flashing and the cd drive sounds like it spins up. I am thinking of reflashing the bios to see if this does anything, using the blind-flash method mentioned in the stickied post for the unlocked bios. What is worrying me the most at the moment is that when I push the power button, the laptop powers on for half a second and then shuts off. If i power it back on right after it shuts itself off, it remains on, but still not booting into anything. If anything needs to be clarified please ask, and shoot me ideas on how to fix. Like I said it seems like this forum is my last hope before having to send it in, which won't happen any time soon as I am a broke college student at this point. TLDR: Bios were screwed up, flashed bios, thought it bricked, cleared cmos, booted fine once, failed to boot, cleared cmos again, nothing working now. Help Please!
