  1. vbios 970m 3GB mod assistance needed

    Hello, I'm on an alienware m17 r4 and am trying mod my vbios for a 970m 3GB msi. I've managed to get the max boost with an increase in voltage, however I believe my voltage settings maybe unstable. When attempting to load programs capable of high gpu usage capabilities, the gpu begins to become pretty unstable. would anyone be able to provide assistance? I have both my edited and original roms as well. *update I'm not sure how to delete this thread but disregard this please. I've figured out the issue.
  2. msi gt70 2od

    Wlc, I want to create an afermarket diy cooling solution for my laptop.
  3. Does anyone have experience with this? Some threads I've seen have done it on a 17 inch laptop, I was wondering if it was possible on the 15 inch version as well. What issues will I face? I read about having to have a custom BIOS and vBIOS..but also HDMI/audio issues. I guess I should also upgrade my CPU, which runs really hot (i7 4800MQ), but not sure another Haswell chip will run any cooler. I've used liquid metal and even that hasn't changed temperatures much, it still reaches 93C pretty easily.
  4. MSI gx740 tuning/upgrade options

    Hi, I own gx740 with i5-430m, 4GB RAM, and I planned to do some upgrades. Currently I did: - upgrade SSD, move HDD to dvd drive space - have some unlocked bios (but didn't found usage for it currently) - have modified vbios but not sure if the values I've used are good I was thinking about: - upgrading CPU to i7-640M - upgrading RAM (not sure which will fit) I would like to also: - fix broken/cracked frame around screen, but it wont be easy and cheap I guess? - replace screen to something brighter (?) but this will probably not be worth the cost 1) What do you guys think about it? Is it even worth? 2) I've also see something like 'grain effect' moving grey stripes on same page elements (long time I remember it could be related to faulty bios/vbios)?
  5. Hello guys, Thanks for this incredible forum, I hope I will learn a lot from the gurus ! I am trying to make my eGpu MSI GT X970 work on my laptop with K1100M integrated GPU. This are my specs: CPU: 2.7GHz Intel Core i7-4800MQ (quad-core, 6MB cache, up to 3.7GHz with Turbo Boost) PSU : ??? Graphics: NVIDIA Quadro K1100M / Intel HD Graphics 4600 RAM: 32 GB Storage: 1TB I got a V8.0 EXP GDC Laptop External Independent Video Card Dock with the express card version ( I am not really hw savy) and I am looking for a good psu to power my MSI GTX 970 4G Could you kindly suggest a good PSU that i could use to power this GPU ? I am also willing to do as many experiments needed Thanks for reading my post -zepvalue
  6. As the title says; is it possible to upgrade the old MSI 16f2 with any pascal card? Or is the 980M the highest possible? Looking forward to your answers. Thanks
  7. GE72 970m 3gb unlocked vbios?

    Hi have been searching for an unlocked vbios for a while now, does anyone have a link? MSI GE72 2qf 4720hq version
  8. MSI gt70 0nc mod BIOS flash

    Hey everyone I want to flash the bios of my barebone MSI laptop (ms-1762 gt70-0nc) with a modified bios (link: ) so is there anything I had to watch for? And how do I flash it(does I think right? LG Rimzi
  9. Hey guys, I have a MSI 16F4 with a 970m GTX and an i7 4800MQ. I get around 80C on my GPU and CPU if I play a game like Darksiders Warmastered, but 90C on my CPU if I play a CPU heavy game like Dota 2. So I applied some thermal grizzly conductonaut liquid metal paste on my CPU and GPU about 2 months ago. After I applied it, I noticed that there weren't any changes in the termperature, so I applied a little more paste again and still noticed no changes. I decided to let it be and give it time to settle in. 2 months later, still the same. Well, last week I thought I'd have another look at it, so I opened it up and sure enough the paste was still liquid and not dried up. I added a tiny droplet more just in case, and yet again I see NO CHANGES in temperatures. I'm fairly sure the paste has been applied correctly, as I've had a look at how several other people have done it on youtube. Can someone help me with why my CPU is heating up so much? The vents are clean, my laptop is dustless. Sure, I turn up the turbo boost on the fan, but that's just so noisy.
  10. GTX1070 in MSI GT70-2OD/2OC

    Is the MSI Dragon Edition 2 can be upgraded from GTX780M to GTX1070?
  11. MSI Ge72 2QC vBios OC?

    Hello people of Tech Inferno! I was wondering if I could install a custom vBios on my MSI GE72 2QC Apache Laptop But I'm also wondering if it could brick your system like a normal bios flash. It's for the GTX 960M 2gb version. Thanks!
  12. Hi everyone, I was looking into overclocking my 4800MQ, so I installed XTU. I'm more or less a beginner at this, however I noticed when I try to benchmark my CPU, the ''current limit throttling'' is almost always occurring. I've tried increasing the processor current limit and undervolting as well but it has no effect. Also, the package TDP doesn't seem to go above 39-40W... Could anyone help me with this? Why is my CPU throttling without reaching its limit?
  13. Could a good soul help me with unlocking voltage and power limit bars on my 970M 3GB? I've tried manual tweaks in MaxwellBiosTweaker, but as a first time VBIOS tinkerer I have too many gaps to confidently overclock (managed to get from 1038 MHz to 1329 MHz). Naturally, I am more than willing to donate if all works out successfully. Rom image attached. Laptop: MSI GT72 2QD before_overclocking.rom
  14. Hey guys, This issue just came up with my laptop yesterday. After unplugging and replugging a minute later I noticed that the laptop battery is not charging anymore. I have to say though the battery is really worn out, it only hold charge for like 15mins. I can still power up the machine (it has some batter power left) but plugging it in is just producing some smell. I took the laptop apart to see where the problem is. Here are some pictures of the power socket: http://prntscr.com/gb4fg6 http://prntscr.com/gb4fyh http://prntscr.com/gb4g65 http://prntscr.com/gb4ge6 Everything looks ok to me to be honest (although I am no expert). But I can definitely feel a stronger smell around this bit. So what do you think the problem is here? The power socket? or could it be the power supply (btw that is a adp-180hb b if it matters)? I guess we can rule out the battery? Anyone had similar experiences? Since this is my work computer I’d appreciate any help you can give me. Thank you so much in advance!
  15. REQUEST - MSI GE72 2QF unlocked VBIOS.

    Hello. I recently cleaned my laptop and changed thermal paste, so GPU has a lot of headroom for OC. At full load it's at 60c. And throttling only starts at 87c for both CPU and GPU. I searched everywhere, but it seems no one really modded this laptop's VBIOS. I found one person who does it, but he requires a donation for it. Since I don't have a lot of money I didn't even try to donate and see if it's enough. So maybe someone can help me out here? The laptop is with i7-4720HQ downclocked to 3.0 Ghz instead of 3.6 Ghz due to temperatures at full load, 16 GB of DDR3 ram and a GTX 970M 3GB. Added link for original VBIOS file. https://www.msi.com/Laptop/support/GE72-2QF-Apache-Pro-4.html#down-firmware Direct download link from MSI. Driver version for the lazy - 84.04.26.00.29.
  16. MSI GT60, GTX 675m (Died), please help...

    I sent my laptop (MSI GT60-0ND) to check up and the video card was confirmed dead, I learned that I can upgrade my GPU, but I can't take a step without any help. Many told me its risky and the market is tight. http://www.compeve.com/video-cards/mobile/pny-nvidia-geforce-gtx-680m-2gb-mxm-video-card-89v00664-m ^I found this card, GTX 680M, and it looks absolutely the same one as (GTX 675M) and the slot is compatible, however due to reviews, the 680M is way faster than my previous one, if that poses any threat. If someone can check it for me and tell me whether its good or not, I'd appreciate it.
  17. Hi! I have faced this problem a month ago. Laptop is shutting down by itself with no reason! It happens quite suddenly. It turns off like if I hold the power button (everything just going black with no error masseges or smth). After reboot i can see "Kernel-Power 41". The laptop has 3 performance modes: Green, Comfort and Sport. It turns off when it's working in "Comfort" or "Sport" modes and in "Green" mode this has never happened. As soon as I put it in the "Sport" the laptop goes out after 2-3 minutes. Without load it works normally in all three modes. There is no overheating, the temps are ~80-82C for both GPU and CPU cores under full load. All the clocks are default. I already reinstalled windows, reinstalled all the drivers, tried old driver versions... tried everything that i can do via software! Also tried turning "Turbo-boost" and/or "Hyper Threading" off. Nothing helps. Sometimes it's not shutting down, it acts like if I disconnect the power adapter and it starts working only from the battery power, even with power adapter still plugged in. Sometimes it starts "blinking", like power adapter going on and off (1-2 blinks). I also tried 600W power adapter, with the hope that THIS ONE will be enough, but nothing changes. Usually it happens more frequently when battery is under 90% of charge and laptop starts using both PA and Battery, while charging it. Please, i need help! Maybe you have some ideas how to fix this without sending my laptop to the service? See laptop specs-file in attachments. GS70_6QE_Specs.7z

  19. Hi All! First thread poste here!

  20. Hello everyone. I've been reading the forums for quite a while now, and I can't even describe how helpful everyone at techinferno is. It's time for my first post and my question is towards the GPU vBios and Alienware/Clevo gurus here at techinferno. I've bought a barebone Origin EON 15-X (Clevo p750dm) it's the Skylake version. I also have an MSI GTX970m 6GB which doesn't seem to be working when installed in the 15-X (black screen not even backlight, only the keyboard backlight is working, no fans are spinning and there are no beeps). I think it might be due to the MSI vBios. I want to try to flash the card with a Clevo vBios (thanks to Prema) and see if the card would then work. I was hoping I can use my trusty M18x r2 for that task. In the primary GPU slot I've got my 7970m and in the slave slot I've put the 970m. When I power the laptop and go to the bios, it only shows "ATI GFX" for "Discrete Graphics 1 and for "Discrete Graphics 2" shows "Not Detected". I've tried booting to Windows and checked the device manager, same thing only the 7970m is listed. I'm not sure if what I'm trying to do is even possible. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance
  21. First and foremost: this is a HASSLE-FREE BUILD. You will not find creative schematics, acrobatic soldering, custom BIOSes or anything like that: this is pure "just works eGPU" with Win10 bootcamp and an external display (so, no OSX support and no internal monitor either) Let's begin! Hardware: - Macbook Pro Retina Mid 2014 with nVidia GT750M - Akitio Thunder2 - MSI GTX 1070 Armor 8G OC - Dell DA-2 12V (ended up not using it) - Old Corsair 540W Modular PSU Setup: None. Absolutely no software setup. I had my previously working Win10 bootcamp machine installed, and it was a regular, apple-certified, Win10 installation done via bootcamp assistant, so no UEFI workaround or custom BIOS. The works Got my Akitio, unbox and open. Just 2 screws and voila. Removed the back plate (4 little screws) I unplugged both the fan and the led cable and removed the glued support for the cable, you can still see the glue Removing the fan was just a matter of removing 4 screws, the LED light took just a bit of force and it popped out of the socket. Here's all the things from the Akitio you will not use. As you can see from the hardware list, I decided to go with a full sized GTX card, and not just a full-sized one, a pretty big one at that. The MSI GTX1070 Armor OC does not have any LEDs or fancy things, just 2 big (and quiet) fans and that's that. So, of course, I had to bend the Akitio to make room for the card. I went with the "jeweller's screwdriver" technique. Fast and easy: just put a little flat screwdriver near the soldering at the bottom of the enclosure and work your way in lightly with a hammer. Took me 1 minute and the little solderings popped open. Now it was just a matter of applying a bit of brute force and bend the enclosure open. Not pretty, I know... but I'm not looking for pretty. Besides, the card is so long it covers the bent enclosure and then some! I gotta say, I was getting pretty impatient at this point. I put the card in, adjusted the two screws to set it in place and checked the spacing between the card and the bent enclosure. Everything was in order. Not pretty, again, but in order. At this point, I encountered a little snafu in my plan. I had bought the famous Dell DA-2 to power my GPU.. turns out this monster of a card has an 8 pin power slot, not a 6 pin one. Huh. Now what? Remember, this was supposed to be a hassle-free installation, no soldering or complicated workarounds. I remembered I had an oldish PSU from my desktop era sitting in a closed, took it out, plugged it in and got a nice 8-pin cable to power my GPU. (of course I had to use the paperclip-trick to power the PSU, but it's so basic, I'm not counting that as a hassle). To power the Akitio, since this a... let's say it again, everyone... hassle free build, I didn't want to use any custom made barrels or anything, so I used the original PSU, plugged it in and that's it. It was time to power it all up and see what the future brings. Thunderbolt cable connected, external monitor plugged in with a displayport cable, everything powered up... turn on MBP: nothing. Black screen. Huh. Powered down, tried to plug the thunderbold cable in AFTER the boot. Got a "hey I found something" sound from Windows, but nothing else. Reboot. Now the MBP started in Bootcamp, and Device Manager said there was a "Microsoft Basic Display Adapter". Bingo! Downloaded latest nVidia drivers, gave it a go: oh, damn! I have 2 video cards! Rebooted again The external monitor came to life, so I closed the lid on my MacBook (I'm using it in clamshell mode, I have no need for another screen) and there it was. With this solution, you don't even need to go and disable the "internal" 750M, Didn't have the time to make a 3D Mark benchmark, yet... but these were the settings of my WoW client yesterday and @2560x1440 with all ultra settings I had 67fps. Not too shabby Future implementations: - power the Akitio via the barrel to remove an external PSU - organize cables and spaces - switch PSU: this one has a terrible case of "coil whining", it looks like I'm skinning a cat... - IF I ever have any spare time, try and put everything inside a box: I'm thinking of one of those ikea metal boxes... Thank you all for your help and... comments appreciated! (everything but: "it's ugly!". That one I know )
  22. Hi i have an msi ge 60 2pc and i am trying to install egpu exp v8 the gtx 1060 zotac 3gb, but i have the error 43 . haw i can resolve this ? , with the 650ti no problem , plz need help
  23. Hi, Now that I upgraded my processor to a i7-2920xm I need a better graphics card than a 7970m for rendering and gaming. Firstly, will the DELL Nvidia Quadro K5100M graphics card work in the GT780DXR? Secondly, is it better than the 7970M in gaming (obviously in rendering it is far better). I put a DELL 7970M in my laptop a few years back as an upgrade, it worked without any issues, I just need to know if the K5100M is compatible in my laptop (if the VBIOS will need modding or not) and if it will cause driver issues or not. Thanks
  24. (using a traductor) Hello everyone. My problem is that after buying the "exp gdc v8" by bangood and trying to install an eGPU on my Dell Inspiron N5110 with an MSI GTX 1060 GAMING X 6GB GDDR5 I do not get the expected result. Another thing to keep in mind is that the BIOS of this computer is junk and does not allow switching between dGPU and eGPU I will explain in several cases, in which the graphic card is correctly connected: 1- After turning on the power supply and connecting the HDMI-miniPCI-E cable, and the HDMI cable of the graphic to an external monitor and turning on the notebook, the screen remains black with the computer fan running. After a few seconds the graphics fans turn off and the computer continues with the black screen. 2- After turning on the power supply and connecting the HDMI-miniPCI-E cable, and the HDMI cable of the graphics card to an external monitor and turning on the notebook, the computer turns on normally and even, in the device manager, appears in The screen adapters section, the graphic card with a yellow triangle error. Now, what I did was take an old graphics card and do step number 1. To my surprise, everything was on wheels, installed its driver and worked wonderfully. Could the NVIDIA GTX 1060 not be compatible for some reason? Thanks in advance
  25. Hi, So basically what happened was that I wanted to get a back light keyboard for my MSI GT780DXR (i7-2670qm, 7970M, 16GB ram) laptop, I knew that the UK version didn't have it so I bought it. Anyway, I have connected everything, the keyboard seems to work fine but the LED's do not light up, have I done something wrong. Does the EC controller need flashing so the back light works, if so how would I go about doing that because when I try flashing it through DOS it give me a filename mismatch error (I know this means that I cant flash different EC software on the chip). I just want to know is there a way to force the back light to work, this is quite frustrating and I know it is possible to make it work so don't tell me it won't.
