Alienware M17x-R2(P01E) GTX765M OC upgrade

Recommended Posts

So, I'm facing some issues with a hardware upgrade on an Alienware M17x-R2 model P01E. I've been attempting to get a GTX 765M OC edition card that I pulled from another Alienware to work fully with the system. As of right now I can only boot the system into Windows 7 through safe mode.

What I've done thus far:

         -Rewrote the INI file to allow Nvidia's drive to install

         -Flashed the vbios from the original to Kepler

 

Whenever the system tries to boot normally it crashes and the screen changes to a random color, usually pink or black.

 

If anyone could point me in the right direction to making this work that would be great.

      So I just received a 980m in the post and after installing it I was greeted by multiple system crashes on my Alienware m17xr4 and was unable to install new drivers.

      Is there a step in the intallation process I missed? A bios setting I was supposed to change? The laptop is already set to UEFI mode in preperation for this and upon putting the old 680m back in the system it now works again. I have heard that I need to change INI files to install drivers but I expected it to at least function without large bugs such as these. Do you think that this GPU is faulty or have I done something wrong?
       
      Thanks for any help you can give.

      Hi,
       
      I've recently got my hands on an M17x R4 Alienware Laptop from 2013 which I love. I've replaced the screen, keyboard, RAM, and hard drive to make it into a fully modern laptop. However, I'm currently waiting on a replacement for the 680m GPU with a 980m from ebay. My question for you all is, do I need to do anything with the BIOS to make this 980m work? Is there a way to prevent the laptop from using Intel HD Graphics with Optimus? I think the Intel HD Graphics on this laptop are currently broken as I see static-looking dots flash on the screen. (See image below for example). My theory is that because Intel HD Graphics with Optimus is still in-use while in-game, the dots are being caused by it.
       
      Thanks for any help in advance.
