[Alienware - Clevo - MSI] Aftermarket Upgrades Driver Support - Modded INF

Recommended Posts

Few weeks ago I realised Nvidia have stopped the driver support for my  card (680M) and some games that require newer drivers simply wont run.

After some searching online I came across a couple of good instructions how to mod the .inf file and make it install on your syste.

In general every driver you download from Nvidia (provided it's for your type of card e.g. GTX, and OS) is pretty much the same, the difference is in the .inf file where the instructions are for the specific card and OS. Here are the links, very easy to follow and do. Use the tables from the video as I'm not sure how dated are the tables from the first link (maybe they are the same though). Just as a note your device ID and GPU string can be found from within your PC, it's just require some extra steps.

Hope it helps anybody.

If manuf or nvidia stopped driver support or driver installation fail, install latest driver from manuf website and update once with Windows Update. Download latest notebook drivers from NVIDIA, extract setup and edit nv_disp.inf to add  your device from this list https://raw.githubusercontent.com/CHEF-KOCH/nVidia-modded-Inf/master/Inf/Mobile/391.35/nv_dispi.inf

 

Example. NVIDIA_DEV.13D8 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M"

 

[NVIDIA_Devices.NTamd64.10.0...17098]
%NVIDIA_DEV.13D8% = win10amobile,       PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_13D8

      I got a msi ge60 2pf Apache pro & its specs :
       
      Processor-i7 4710MQ
      Ram-16GB 
      VGA- GTX 860M 2GB Maxwell 
       
      Could anyone tell me the best overclock that I could use on this GPU?
      Please keep in mind that the voltage cannot be changed as this is a laptop
       
      Thank you

      I have a p150sm which has a seemingly dead 780m due to a perpetual error 43 which came after a big BSOD about 6 months ago. I upgraded the laptop to a 980m and modded the inf files. The upgrade was perfectly fine for a week. One day, i left the laptop and something related to sleep or power may have caused the laptop to shut off. Since then, the laptop with the 980m won't boot. I tried many things like resetting cmos, taking out the hardware and putting it back in, and resetting bios, and buying a 230W adapter. Nothing worked. The laptop works fine with the old dead 780m in there, but now when the 980m is in there, holding the power button generates a green light flash and then the power LED goes back to orange. No sounds, maybe one tick, and that's it. What is left to try?

      After the most recent Windows 10 update, my Clevo Control Centre has stopped working properly. When I try to change the fan speed nothing happens and this is causing my laptop to overheat when playing certain games. This has happened before but using malware bytes seemed to work; that was a free trial so I no longer have access to this. 
      Please can someone help? I'm at my wits end with this.
