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. 

Hi!

I think in your case, to use GTX 1070 mobile card, you need 17.3" 1080p 120hz 3D display installed in your laptop. Read this thread:  http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/alienware-m17x-r4-gtx1070-mxm-successful-upgrade.825475/

For creating backup of bios you can use attached utility. Extract attached archive directly on the Desktop and run the backup tool as Administrator (right click mouse, choice "Run as Administrator").  Utility will create archive "results" directly on the Desktop.

In this case, you can create bootable USB flash drive with Windows 8.1PE, then boot in Windows 8.1PE from created bootable USB flash drive, then run backup tool and create your bios backup (results.rar).

Hi! I couldn't make the 1070 work with integrated display even with the settings in the unlocked BIOS, so unlucky me hahahaha

But the unlocked BIOS worked perfectly fine for me, so really thank you for all your help Klem, you are amazing! <3

Hi there. Happy New Year!!

I know this is an old laptop but I cannot afford a new one.

Do you by any chance have an Alienware M17x R4 unlocked A15 BIOS please?

If not then which toolss/apps would I need to do it myself?

 

Thanks a lot,

Hi! Happy New Year!

You can post here your file backup of bios, or upload it into any fileserver and post the link.

For creating backup of bios use attached utility. Extract attached archive directly on the Desktop and run utility as Administrator (right click mouse, choice "Run as Administrator"). Utility will create archive "results" directly on the Desktop. Post here this archive "results", or upload it into any fileserver and send me the link.

      Hello everyone,
      My new laptop Thunderobot Zero 11800H_RTX3060 have a locked bios. I tried CPU undervolt via ThrottleStop utility and Intel XTU utility, but they didn't work. I heard I need to unlock advanced settings in BIOS to unlock these utilities. So, I need help to unlock hidden advanced settings. Thanks!

      I got the S100-11IBY laptop. now and entered the boot menu to install Windows 11, but the USB is not visible on the menu. I don't think the BIOS supports 64-bits, but please MODIFY the attached BIOS firmware to support CSM and 64-bits. DOWNLOAD : https://url.kr/o5jwiy

      My laptop's CPU is i7 4700MQ, iGPU is GMA HD 4600, and dGPU is NVIDIA GeForce GTX860m.
      Please send me a modified BIOS(.ROM) file with GMA HD 4600 disabled among the two graphics.
