Directions for 980m upgrade on M18x R2

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I've been lurking for some time around this forum, it always helped me with my m18x, but now since both of my 680m gpus fried, I purchased a 980m and tried to install it just to get the famous 8 beeps. I know I need to flash a Bios to get it to work, but I'm really a noob on those things, I rarely touched Bios stuff before, so I got a little scared of the amout of stuff I need to do just to get this GPU to work.

I know there's 2 versions of this Bios here, I dont know which one to get, the svl7 one or the Swick1981 one, but I can't download them with this account yet anyway, even if I donate to the creator. 

If possible, I would appreciate some directions, tutorials, whatever. My M18x R2 configs are below.

Windows 10.0.19041

x64

Intel i7-3920XM CPU @ 2.90GHz, 2101 MHz Overclocked to 4.10 GHz

Bios Alienware A12, 13/09/2013

SM Bios ver 2.7

1.01

Legacy Mode

16GB Ram

 

Thanks in advance!

Thank you for clarifying, but it wont let me download it yet, should I make a donation first?

I think yes, this bios is not for free.

Would this Bios work on Windows 10?

Thank you! But do you think it would be safer/better if I get back to Windows 7? I want it to run smooth, and plan on getting a second 980m too, Swick1981 mentioned a guy named woodstackz that sells them, is he from this forum? Also, will I need a modded driver for the 980m or can i just download the latest from nvidia?
