clevo p150em ati 7970m died? works with gtx 260m

Recommended Posts

Hello all,


i have two questions...


the first one is:
i have a clevo p150em with 7970m. My mobo got a short circuit and fried... i replaced the mobo and discover that my processor fried too... replaced it too , but now i cant put my gpu to work, ati 7970m... I pretty sure that the video card fried too but im not 100% sure.... As I changed the motherboard for an equal, the gpu (if not fried) should work normally, right? or Is there something I might be missing?

bios recognize its a 7970m, 



the second question:
I have a working gtx 260m that was pulled off from a alienware m17x r1... I installed it on clevo. Bios recognizes that there is a nvidia card. But I could not install it on windows. I searched for a driver for gtx 260m compatible with clevo p150em but I found nothing, anyware on the internet. my clevo p150 works with it pluged, not reset as if without a card but i cant install it on windows ... could anyone help?  do I have to do something like flash vbios of the video card? any driver mod suggest ? Or is this card really incompatible with my clevo?



Thank you in advance.

hi khenglish,


thanks for the replay. 


I installed the driver using inf mod, but all the drivers I installed, I could not "put the card to work".  its show ok in device manager, In gpu-z it appears with the normal clocks. But I can not switch between the intel hd 3000  and gtx 260m. In older drivers such as 260.63, 275.33, i can even access the nvidia panel, but there is no option to choose the video card.
In newer drivers such as 342.00, 314.21. I can not access the nvidia panel, it gives a message that the video card is not plugged into any display. Follows images. Any tips?

      I've been wondering lately whether this would be a good idea or not.
      I'm not quite knowledgeable enough however to determine what the best GPU is compatibile with my machine. Forgive me for not knowing where to look!
      So I'm asking here. I currently have an Nvidia GTX 675MX. And it's not bad, honestly. But I'm just wondering if there's another I could aim for later this year that'd be a significant upgrade.

      Hi all,
      I come to this forum to seek advice on how to fix my poor laptop.
      As stated in the title, I have a Sager NP9150/Clevo P150EM.
      This laptop originally came with an AMD 7970M but it was faulty and I could never get it to work.
      So anyways, the replacement GPU that I was given from the person who sold this laptop to me was an Nvidia GTX 770M.
      We installed the GPU and that went fairly smoothly; however, the joy was lost when we got into windows.
      The system cannot, for lack of better words, "recognize" the gpu as Nvidia?
      It shows up in Device Manager as Microsoft Basic Display Adapter.
      In BIOS, it shows VGA: Empty.
      It seems like the system knows that something's there, but not what it is.
      I've tried the Nvidia drivers from Sager, Clevo, Nvidia themself.
      I even tried the first 10 and last 2 drivers from laptopvideo2go to no avail.
      I desperately need some advice or suggestions on this.
