Alienware m17x r4 GTX 980m


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


I apologise in advance if this was asked before,

Basically I have acquired an AW m17x r4 with a faulty graphics card. The card was the 675m.

I just happen to have a GTX 980m out of a faulty MSI GT60. 

I did a fresh install of Windows 10 on the machine in UEFI mode with secure boot enabled however the card just shows up as Microsoft Basic Display Adopter and Nvidia Driver installer says there is no compatible hardware.

Is there a  way to make this card work? Something like a modified driver or perhaps a vBIOS flash? 

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks guys!



Trying to flash a clevo vbios, but get board ID mismatch in nvflash

Board id E90C

vBIOS id E906


Could someone direct towards a compatible BIOS for this card?
