When installing a video card 1070, I have 6 short signals. What this?

 

6 beeps indicates a failed GPU. If you have the original card then try that again to see if the system works. If it does then the 1070 is probably faulty.

Hi!

If your laptop it is Alienware M17x R4, then you can find and download unlocked bios from the first post of this thread.

If you for some reason can't download, then read the "User Account Promotion Rules": https://www.techinferno.com/index.php?/announcement/4-user-account-promotion-rules-read-before-post

Hey all,

 

I've been trying to flash a custom bios for a while as my 7970M is dead and windows keeps trying to update it causing PC to crash. I would need to disable the GPU from the bios so the PC only uses the iGPU which works just fine.

However the link for the tools on the first page  are dead.

 

"Grab the DOS version of fpt for flashing, and my 'prr tool' to circumvent write protection.

 

Many thanks for the help

Al.

Thanks Klem !!!

Managed to flash a modded BIOS which was working fine as it would let me chose to force the IGPU !!!

 

But then i messed a bit with the settings and was dumb enough to exit while saving... Having both GPU and iGPU disabled...

So now i'm getting a black screen + 8 beeps (LCD failures).

 

Is it possible to revert to default BIOS settings without actually accessing the BIOS ???

 

THanks !

Yes, sometimes if you set some settings to wrong value, then laptop may be can't start.

In first post of related thread svl7 wrote: 

"... Dell has hidden a lot of options in the BIOS of the Alienware M17x R4, the modified BIOS versions here will show you all the hidden menus and allow you to further tweak your system and optimize its performance.

Don't change anything you're not familiar with. There might be functions available which don't work on your system, so use this BIOS with care. It should only be used by advanced users.

In case you mess up and your system refuses to boot after applying the changes you make, remove the AC adapter, battery and coin cell battery in order to clear the non-volatile ram of the BIOS. This should fix most issues..."

 

Also, if you will set some settings to wrong value and after this laptop can't start, you can read info from this link:

Just physically pull the bad card from the laptop and it will automatically run on the iGFX

Hi Klem, I want to disable the integrated graphics card Intel HD Graphics from the A12 BIOS of my Alienware M17x R4 allowing only the Nvidia one for my Hackintosh, can you please unlock all the BIOS features? the links to the needed tools for reflashing the modded BIOS are missing so I will really appreciate your help, I also have a CH341A device for flashing the file directly to the chip in case you want to provide the full 16MB BIOS file or an updated version file such as the A15, I recovered the chip with this method in the past but a USB option will be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much in advance.

Hi Klem. I'm pretty noob at this, so I'll need some advises to make it right, it would be very nice of you if you can help me :)
I have an M17X R4 with A12 BIOS, i7 3940XM and a GTX 980M, all works fine. I recently got a Zotac GTX 1070 mobile card, so I changed it, but the laptop's display doesn't work, only external monitors. 
I read in some forum that I need an unlocked BIOS to force it to use the integrated display, is that correct?

How can I do the backup of my BIOS to send it to you and unlock it? And how can I install it? I use Manjaro as unique OS. 

Thank you very much for the help.
