Will this modded inf work on a Clevo P150EM with an 980m? There is mention of the P170EM on the instructions but no file with that model to download.

Thanks

But the clevo version on download says "non-optimus", and p150em (like p170em) have optimus (one of the big problems with this new drivers). 

Tried with the alieware optimus INF and it didn't work :/

I just updated my drivers and yes is the clevo ones, you can trust. It works for p170em should work for p150em. If it doesnt you need to find the hardware device id and post it here and maybe J can include it for your laptop in the next inf's.  Mine didn't work either until I posted my IDs.

With the modded inf of clevo (non-optimu) it worked and everything seems do work fine, except the context menu where i could choose the GPU to use with some programs...nothing major as i can do that manually on the nvidia control panel.

Thanks for all the help.

Heres my GPU-Z screenshot to add the p150em to the device list if anyone wants it:

Here you go *nvcvi.inf*, like the P170EM I'll add P150EM from now on.

THANK YOU!

 

Everything appears to work now (as with old INF mod) but the Context Menu reappeard now :)
Going to test on my windows 10 partition to see if everything goes well there too.

Will you implement this infs in the next drivers for now on? It would help us a lot (i spent nights trying to mod the infs but with every new version it seems to change here and there :/ )

Thank you again

      900M Requirements:

       Flash latest @Prema's v2 980M & 970M (Please consider donating to Prema)

 

What happens if I try to flash the old SVL7 VBios with this driver? Black screens? I wanted to try some 1.000V instead of actual Prema's 1.062v bios to see if somewhat improves cooling performance.

Black screen because nvidia changed something in the drivers a few years ago.

@82280zx that's a common issue with Nv latest drivers, try to found out if officially supported Alienware's 900M are also affected. If so, report it on GF forums as being an AW 2015 issue.

Hey first thank you for great work.

Could I ask you if is the right way to modify nvdispi.inf for my card? Because all previous drivers always seems to install and works in this way but I'm not really sure.
If not, could I ask you to add in next mod??

ehm Thank you again

Hi method posted seems to work but on Win10x64 the formatting of strings is different.

Did you miss this?

@82280zx that's a common issue with Nv latest drivers, try to found out if officially supported Alienware's 900M are also affected. If so, report it on GF forums as being an AW 2015 issue.

 

@J95 from what I can tell I never had any issues till I installed the Windows 10 Creator Update, It looks like I'm not alone on the issue ether (official cards and other laptops that aren't modded are being affected as well) and I haven't tested it yet but it sounds like if I removed the update the drivers would probably work. Here is the forum thread on it on Nvidia's site https://forums.geforce.com/default/topic/1003027/geforce-drivers/w10-creator-update-and-nvidia-drivers-issues-/6/

      So I just received a 980m in the post and after installing it I was greeted by multiple system crashes on my Alienware m17xr4 and was unable to install new drivers.

      Is there a step in the intallation process I missed? A bios setting I was supposed to change? The laptop is already set to UEFI mode in preperation for this and upon putting the old 680m back in the system it now works again. I have heard that I need to change INI files to install drivers but I expected it to at least function without large bugs such as these. Do you think that this GPU is faulty or have I done something wrong?
       
      Thanks for any help you can give.

      Hi,
       
      I've recently got my hands on an M17x R4 Alienware Laptop from 2013 which I love. I've replaced the screen, keyboard, RAM, and hard drive to make it into a fully modern laptop. However, I'm currently waiting on a replacement for the 680m GPU with a 980m from ebay. My question for you all is, do I need to do anything with the BIOS to make this 980m work? Is there a way to prevent the laptop from using Intel HD Graphics with Optimus? I think the Intel HD Graphics on this laptop are currently broken as I see static-looking dots flash on the screen. (See image below for example). My theory is that because Intel HD Graphics with Optimus is still in-use while in-game, the dots are being caused by it.
       
      Thanks for any help in advance.

      Required items:
      1.) Lenovo u310 (I have a Core i3 - Ivy Bridge, 8GB RAM)
      2.) 65CN99WW unwhitelisted.
      3.) eGPU (I used a EVGA GTX 750 Ti from another computer I had).
      4.) EXP GDC mPCIe Edition adapter (got from eBay - banggood seller).
      5.) ATX power supply (I used a 600W PSU from another computer I had).
      6.) USB wireless.
      7.) External monitor, keyboard, and mouse.
       
      Steps:
      1.) Obtain and install a unwhitelisted BIOS. If you are unable to obtain a unwhitelist BIOS, I think it might be possible to bypass it with Tech Inferno Fan's Setup 1.x (may need confirmation as I haven't used it myself yet.)
      2.) Shutdown computer and remove all USB devices, ethernet cables, power cables, card reader cards.
      3.) Remove mPCIe wireless card and detach antennas.
       
       
      4.) Attach EXP GDC external mPCIe cable to the former wireless slot and screw down.
       
       
      5.) Attach HDMI end of the mPCIe cable adapter to the EXP GDC device.
       
       
      6.) Attach graphics card to the EXP GDC device (I moved my laptop off the desk and onto the side shelf to make room on the desk for the monitor/keyboard/mouse).
       
       
      7.) Using the power cable adapters that came with the EXP GDC device, I hooked in my ATX power supply's 20 pin and CPU 4 pin cables. Then hooked the other end (8 pin) into the EXP GDC device. My EVGA 750 Ti also required that I use an additional PCIe power cable (6 pin) in the top of the card.
       
       
       
       
       
      8.) Then I attached my misc devices (HDMI monitor, USB keyboard/mouse/wireless adapter), and hooked in my PSU and powered it on (below is image of final product, also moved HDMI cable out of the way).
       

       
      9.) Power on your computer and let it install the standard VGA drivers and then install your drivers (I didn't have to go in the BIOS for any graphics settings, which it doesn't have anyways, nor did I have to disable iGPU in Device Manager before the card was added).
       
      Extra Info:
      I found that most games will play on med settings with about 45 FPS with this particular card.
      BDO: Upscale on - Anti Aliasing on - SSAO off - med settings.
      Skyrim: Med-High settings.
      Fallout 4: Med settings.
