MSI barebone MS 16F2ID1 is dead? 7970m vga upgrade

Recommended Posts

My barebone kit ms 16f2id1 is dead :( After middle of game laptop is off. It's started but no post, just blackscreen and fans starts on max dpm. I think it is my gtx560m is dead and now I want to repair my laptop by installing new vga. I want to buy 7970m but don't know which vbios start on my notebook, because in 2015 there are new vbios at this cards (correct me if not) What about enduro? how I can flash a card with wrong bios if I install a card and blackscreen? I'm need the 015.017 vBIOS or it will run on any vbios? Will this card compatible and should work out of the box?

Clevo AMD cards for Enduro systems have a pointless check for an iGPU that disables the card if one is not present. I do not think Dell AMD cards have this check so you should be OK. I am more concerned that your laptop's embedded controller will not be able to read the card's thermal sensor. I believe only Clevo systems have difficulty with Dell AMD cards and not MSI, but you might want to look into this.

Yes the Dell card should work without touching the vBIOS. You'd only have to change it on a Clevo card.

Also just to beware, MSI systems will have weird incompatibility issues with cards. For example I remember seeing a thread where when the 780m came out it would only work in some MSI systems and not others. I don't know if the 7970m will have issues or not.

And what about bios feature legacy or uefi? Because my laptop is brick I can't change any from bios.

Only the HD7970M Revision 1.2 and Enduro off Vbios will work there.

I tried it with Revsion 1.1 and Enduro OFF Vbios and it dosn`t work,

And you Need another Heatsink for it.

The GTX 970M is also work in your Barebone and for this Card you can modify your Heatsink.

We can modify gtx 560m heatsink (dremel mod) for hd7970m, isn't it? Sellers from aliexpress and ebay don't know which vbios flashed on their cards. If I bought hd7970m with revision 1.2 and unknown bios can I flash vbios myself even I have only blackscreen and no post. My notebook is dead until I play at middle of game. If I bought a new vga for 500usd (970m) and laptop will not start anyway. If I can try boot a laptop with any cheaper vga to know that it work, I can buy 970m. Does 970m work at 16f2 with any bios and out of box?

Yes,you can modify the Heatsink.

When you Switch on your Laptop the Laptop will start?

If it don`t start take the Card out,if the Card have a shortcut it don`t start.

The GTX 970M is working in Ms-16F2,i tried it with Clevo GTX 970M.

OK your laptop's embedded controller cannot read Dell's thermal sensor as I feared. Clevo systems have the same problem (except for maybe the ZM series). There is nothing physically wrong with the card.

I have a dead Dell and Clevo 7970m. I can compare them in the next day or 2. I have a suspicion about what's different on the Dell that makes it unreadable on non-Dell systems.

Just to clarify, you do not get an image on the screen?

I`m shure,my Card was a 2GB HD7970M from Dell.

I tried the Clevo GTX 970M with 84.04.22.00.11 Vbios,you can also use 84.04.22.00.13.

Clevo GTX 970M works in all MSI BArebones from MS-16F1 to MS-1763

Based on your reviews I decided to buy a gtx 970m but the seller only bios 84.04.2F.00.7A. I'm not sure about the compatibility. Worth buying? Also, the seller offers free send some copper plates for the graphics card, I do not quite understand why they are needed.I am attaching photo.

Hello, my friends! I repaired a laptop by installing gtx 970m. gtx 970m is fully compatible with ms16f2 barebone even 84.04.2f.00.7a vbios. I don't know a vendor of this card (seller said this is clevo)

GTX 765M,modified Driver,GTX 770M,another Heatsink.You can modify your Heatsink.

Perfomance 8500p in 3dmark. 41C standby. About 80C at hard work.

So only 10c hotter underload then my current 770M, not bad might get one then after i bought my new GT72S when they come out.
