If nothing else shoot me a PM with your email addy and I'll shoot you the entire vbios pack as soon as I get it. It will come as a zipped file with all of the files the pack contains.

Just thought I'd offer to help!

Hey,

i flashed my hd 7970m with your overvolaged vbios (1150) and it seems to me that there happend nothing.

Is it possibly my bios? because i can't run it stable at 950/1400 with this vbios.

May my bios handle this?

Thanks for your help :)

That sort of defeats the entire purpose of T|I implementing the board rules, don't you think? @yurikal, drop any of the mods a PM for assistance if you're still having that problem.

What's your reported 3D voltage? Post a screenprint of GPUshark in detailed view. My primary card used to be stuck at 0975v no matter what vBIOS I flashed.

can I use a 7970m vbios on 8970m?

I don't think so, since flashing a 7970M with an 8970M vBIOS bricks the card. Why would you want to do that anyway?

Really? I never had the chance to test this.

But I know for a fact that 8970m with a 7970m vbios will brick the card, no way to recover per blind flash.

I remember hearing it in one of the early video's from Eurocom when the 8970M was just released. I think it's

one, I can't be sure atm as YouTube is blocked at work. I'll double check the link once I'm home.

edit: Nope incorrect video, seems like the same video but the linked one is much shorter. I'll try to find the correct source.

I think they may have chopped up that video, I remember the video dragging on with the cards in the shot and the guy mumbling about all his tests including trying to get the 7970M to be recognised as a 8970M. It was upgrademonkey since Eurocom seems to have their own channel.

Just found @Prema's post where he mentions he has tested it. His post is here.

Yes I also experienced this on my own skin.

So the Dell bios works with any 7970m? I have a 7970m from the first batch released. It is in a Clevo P150EM machine.

Yes, it works with any 7970m, but not in any machine. P150EM and Dell vbios will give you a black screen. You want to stick with the P150EM vbios if you have that system.

Hello,

I see that you guys are waiting for an modded 021 (or higher) bios. Well, there came recently a program that's called VBE7. With that program you can edit the voltage, power limit and core/mem clock. Here is a link tot the tool:

VBE7 - vBIOS Editor for Radeon HD 7000 series cards | TechPowerUp Forums

I don't have a 7970m but i can open the newer biosses with that program and i can edit and save them. So it looks like it's working.

So I forgot - despite being told - that the original Dell 7970M was replaced with a new one with the 022 vbios and mistakenly tried to downflash. Now I have a brick and blind flashing on my Dell M6600 will not work. I will try later with an older MSI notebook, but assuming this does not work either... Any tricks or chances of success without changing the bios chip? (I do have the original image...)

im not quite sure if this will help you guys but on a gt683 (video card died with bios set to uefi) where a 7970m(says .....015.022 on a sticker on card and rev A00 on esd bag) wont post got it to work by bridging the cs pin and gnd pin on the bios chip of the card turning the laptop on and removing the bridge before flashing (used an autoexec bat file with 015.017 vbios)

P.S i think this will also work for debricking desktop amd cards (since it works for a 7970m and i debricked a gt220 that got flashed with a gt240 rom this way)

wow! if this works in general, it will be a major finding! I'll try it when I have the time and mood to remove the 7970M and put it in the MSI. I'll report back here, though probably not before early next year

thanks!

I think you could do it in the dell unless the vga card is not easily accessible or is broken ?

Perhaps... In fact, the more I think about it - isn't it possible that what you did by shorting the two pins was bypassing the 7970M and booting with the on-die VGA, then - by removing the wires - making the 7970M visible to the bios, then flashing it?

Did your screen work when you first booted?

If so, I can only try it on the Dell, because the old MSI does not have a CPU with video (it's a Clarksfield).

its still a blindflash ,yeah prevents the card from initializing and freezing boot in the process ,the screen after it was flashed (bat file was set to reboot after flashing so I get a 98 shutdown screen)

The card first boot was a dud (i was getting worried that it may be a dud (or the laptop has a dead pcie slot )or i killed it somehow since i don't have any access to an aw system to test it with )

But essentially the card WAS working, only problem was it was not working with the MSI uefi ROM option, right?

Yeah but it would not post with the card's original vbios so it actually gave symptoms of a doa/brick card

it should technically have work otb if the bios is set to legacy

I was thinking it could work for you since it allowed me to debrick a gt220 and it worked with a mobile 7970 (that wont post)

      i want to ask two favours and a question from this community ..
       
      1.) Can someone mod my 940 mx to increase the target temperature and allow higher overclocking than 135hzband voltage control
       
      2.) Allowing my i5 7200U to be undervolted to reduce overall heat 
       
      The question : I repasted my gpu and cpu cleaned it thoroughly, made sure twice everything is connected properly, use a cooling pad and yet the upper portion of my chasis above f1-f12 keys is so hot that i can roast peanuts on it. 
       
      (if i left out any info or missed something please reply i would really love to have a page that has everything for people who have this laptop specifically for light gaming.)

      ok, so, i have a serious problem atm.
      im trying to mod my bios so that i can go past the normal overclocking limit. however, everytime i try to do it, it always says "file size does not match existing bios size!", and it's really annoying, since i had to find everything myself, as no one else online tried this on my specific model, besides me. (which surprises me, really)
      this is the guide im following:
      So this is my detailed description how I managed to mod and overclock my GTX 960M in my Lenovo Y50-70. Please note: it is very dangerous to play with the BIOS, so you need to be very careful! I take NO RESPONSIBILITY for any damage or misuse of the information below! Use it AT YOUR OWN RISK!
       
      -------
       

      Necessary tools:
      A. Fptw64 from Intel (9.5 or above)
      http://forum.hwbot.org/showthread.php?t=75024
      B. PhoenixTool (2.50 or above)
      C. Maxwell II BIOS Tweaker (1.36)
      https://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/2562/maxwell-ii-bios-tweaker-v1-36/
       
      -------------------------
       
      How to flash Modded BIOS:
      0. Flash the latest (3.03 now) official BIOS
      1. From Windows, start 'cmd' as Administrator and read your your BIOS via Fptw64:
         Fptw64 -d BIOS.ROM -bios
      2. Reboot, enter your BIOS and check "Enable downgrading BIOS" feature (we need to downgrade first in order to flash the modded BIOS)
      3. From Windows, downgrade to 1.13 (this is necessary because the newer BIOSes have protection against mod-ding)
      4. After reboot & reflash, start Windows, then enter standby, wait a bit, then wake up the machine
      5. Create your modded BIOS, see separate list below
      6. Start 'cmd' as Administrator and write your _modded_ BIOS via Fptw64:
         Fptw64 -f BIOS_MODDED.ROM -bios
       
      -------------------------
       
      How to create modded BIOS (point 5 above):
      5.1 Start PhoenixTool.exe from Phoenix Tool 2.50 and open your previously saved original BIOS.ROM from point #1 above
       .2 The tool analyses it and shows some messages, click OK
       .3 Now you can find your vBIOS in the "DUMP" subfolder in the folder containing your BIOS.ROM, with the file name:
          BE13645B-2C2C-44D2-A64F-0EA052C34597_1796.ROM
       .4 Create your modded vBIOS, see separate list below -> let's call it 960M_OC.MOD
       .5 Click on "Structure"
       .6 Open "EFI BIOS" tag
       .7 Open second "File Volume {7A9354D9-...}" tag
       .8 DXE Core -> Compressed Section -> Raw section -> File Volume {7A9354D9-...}
       .9 In the very long list, find the following tag (usually displayed at around 80% of the list):
          Freeform {BE13645B-2C2C-44D2-A64F-0EA052C34597}
          This is the item containing the latest vBIOS
       .10 Open the tag, then "GUID defined section", then click on Raw section. "Internal number" (in the top right corner) should be 1796 for BIOS 3.03.
       .11 Click on "Replace" and select your modded vBIOS (called 960M_OC.MOD above)
       .12 Click exit "Exit" and say Yes to "Save changes?"
       .13 Close the Phoenix Tool; now you should have your BIOS.ROM updated (the original will be saved as BIOS.ROM.OLD for safety)
       
      -------------------------
       
      How to create modded vBIOS (point 5.4 above):
      Use Maxwell II BIOS Tweaker to change BE13645B-2C2C-44D2-A64F-0EA052C34597_1796.ROM;
      5.4.1 Open the ROM
         .2 Change "Boost Clock" on "Common" tab to the new boost-ed maximum value
         .3 On "Boost table" tab, use the slider in the right bottom corner to increase your max boost-ed value to the same number
         .4 On "Boost states" tab, at P00 profile, change the MAX values in the GPC, L2C and XBAR fields to the same max boost-ed value
         .5 Save your modified BIOS and rename it to 960M_OC.MOD
       
      (My boost-ed max value was 1359 MHz. I could then use MSI Afterburner's software tuning -> my 960M could reach 1454 MHz without voltage increase.)
      i know that it's for a different laptop, but its basically the same
      ill provide more info when im home
