Hello,

For any of you ...which of the drivers are best in general for the 970M? I am struggling to get it to work. I mean driver during the Windows installation works (the one that Windows picks automatically) the only issue I have with them is that OPTIMUS does not work completely. Nothing wants to use the 970m despite profiles set to use high performance card...

But whenever I try to install other once it comes as unsupported hardware (used Mr Fox modded once and passed the hardware check and started installation but 5sec in Fails to do so-pic enclosed; did the DSE disabling as well if any one wondering, also windows 10, full UEFI, fresh install of windows)

The device ID is as per picture

Also when I have used the Fn+F7 (or F5 dont rem now) to swap to dedicated after reboot got nothing and few beeps pointing to gfx and only CMOS battery removal revives the machine.

Is there a version of unlocked bios that will alow to disable Intel GPU and to install thos darn drivers?

Hmm... newest drivers seems to have decreased stability for me in the Witcher 3. Game crashes 5-10 minutes at stock clocks and I actually have to underclock core by about 50-100 to avoid crashes. Curious, the Witcher 3 is notorious for being extremely sensitive to even slightly modified clocks (even when similarly demanding games and benchmarks like Heaven are completely rid of artifacts much less crashing) but I've never had this issue before with old drivers and certainly not at stock settings.

Are you having these issues with these specific modded drivers or just a standard install of 378.92?

Just a standard install (with the modded inf files of course) with stock vbios, clocks, and everything else. I've been wondering, could this be a hardware issue? I've been pushing my card pretty hard recently with Ghost Recon Wildlands and Mass Effect Andromeda and Andromeda especially ran pretty hot at around 78-81 degrees for me. Could there have been damage done to the card?

Hi J95,

 

I've been using your drivers for single 980M in the M18x R2 without issue. However, I recently added a second 980M, and now when I enable SLI, I get driver crash every 5-10 seconds and the computer is really unusable. Goes away when I disable SLI. No reported problems in device manager or dell ePSA test

@technos Stock clocks?  GPU temps? stock vBIOS? ASIC quality?  Windows version?

 

Try reseating the card a few times if necessary and verify the SLI cable/connector.

 

Please post GPU-Z screenshots (IDs)  980M: 13D7  & 1617 G-SYNC.

      Hi,
      I have an old Dell Alienware M17R3 (2011 built, “new”A12 Bios). Back in 2014 my GTX580M broke, so I decided to put in a GTX680M, which lasted till recently. Now I’m stuck again with 8 beeps and the LCD not turning on. When I remove the card and switch the laptop on, the LCD at least turns on, so I guess it’s a faulty GTX680M. Now...back then people suggested not to go for a GTX580M due to bad thermal values, but as I’m not really using the Laptop for gaming anymore, wouldn’t a GTX480M possibly be a better alternative that lasts even longer? I heard that GTX700M’s could fit in as well, but people reported non fixable sound issues plus thermal issues. Any ideas?

      Hi All
       
      I've been searching all over the internet and these forums in particular and I just can't seem to get any answers regarding GPU upgrades for the Clevo P150HM. Neither can I get any real info on the difference between the HM and the EM model - the EM seems to be the much more talked about model.
       
      Anyway, my current GTX 580M is causing a black screen very occasionally and I decided to purchase a used GTX 980M (N16E-GX-A1) from aliexpress as a replacement.
      The seller isn't giving me much information and I am unsure if they've flashed the vbios on this card themselves, regardless of that I cannot seem to find a custom BIOS for this laptop either, the closest I found is P150EM_17_11_PM_v2 which is obviously for a EM not a HM model, again I don't know much about these two models and if attempting a flash with that BIOS will brick my laptop.
       
      The 980M is the correct form factor, it fits in perfectly and even warms up when I turn the laptop on, I can see the POST screen display but then it simply maxes the fans and beeps out until it shuts down. It would seem to be a pretty clear indication of incompatibility.
       
      Model: Clevo P150HM
      MB Series: P150HMx
      BIOS Revision: 1.01.14
      KBC/EC Firmware Revision: 1.00.12
      Another version number listed (not sure for what): 2.10.1208
       
      I understand this is both an old subject and an even older laptop, but I would be extremely thankful for any help available and I am willing to drill down to create my own custom BIOS if necessary but I just need a point in the right direction.
       
      Failing all that, its not the end of the world as they've already agreed to a return and refund if I can't figure this out.
       
      Thank you.

      Hello guys 
       
      I've got a pretty weird problem with my M18x R2. I already searched the web but couldn't find an answer. A few days ago I changed some settings in the bios, if I remember correctly DMVT Pre-Allocated.
      After saving this setting the notebook refuses to even POST. I get no beep errors or anything. If I press the power button the system turns on, the leds turn on and then the system shuts itself off. I already reset the cmos, the IME, tested different configurations and so on. If I remove all the memory sticks I actually get the memory error code. At this point I'm pretty sure that the bios got corrupted for some reason when saving these mentioned settings. Did anyone had a similar problem and got a solution for this? I repaired lot's of notebook but never had an error like this...
      The Bios installed is the a15 unlocked.

      Hello, I have bought an empty case and assembled parts of Clevo P775DM1. Basically the laptop had no display or MXM Gpu or CPU. For test case I had a CPU lying around G3900 and put it in. I also have mxm gtx 965m Clevo card. I also have installed screen from alienware laptop 2k resolution 120hz. Now the problems.
      1) The laptop boots without a hastle. But as the nvidia drivers load the screen goes black and stays like that. At first I thought the GPU was dead but the external screen worked. Then I though maybe there is a problem with GPU not being recognized or something. Downloaded GPU-Z and every sensor is working fine. I tried saving vbios file and suddenly screen turned on. It probably disconnected the GPU and reconnected it again and as long as the laptop is on, GPU works without a problem. But if I restart it, the laptop screen turns black after boot and external works fine. That's the first problem.
      2) The second one is with Ram and I don't exactly understand the problem. I have 2x8GB rams 2133. single channel works without a problem, but when I try to use both of them the laptop does not boot at all. Won't start fans just blue led keyboard lights up. in single channel both rams work with no problem. And I've tried both slots, since the laptop has 4 slots. Still not working. If you can help with any of the problems, it will be much appreciated.
       
      p.s. I have recently bought the laptop and haven't really figured out anything around it. if you have any extra pointers/bios mods I'd really appreciate it as well.

      I've been scouring the internet in search of anything regarding an updated bios for my Clevo P170SM. I have found many mentions of Prema Bios mods on various websites, but good luck trying to find actual download links. They all seem to vanish or have dead links. Wayback Machine doesn't help either and I was only able to find stock Clevo bios as early as 2015 via the WayBack Machine. If anybody has an updates Prema Bios or some other unlocked bios file for the P170SM, that would be fantastic! Otherwise, I might have to consider paying over $100 to Eurocom for their unlocked bios.
