deadsmiley Posted April 8, 2022 Share Posted April 8, 2022 I have an M17x R4 which I had previously an M4000M and 120Hz display and it worked really well. The laptop has been idle for about 2 years, so I was going to reinstall Win10 and give it to my son so he would have something to game on when out of town on business trips. Well, I got 5 beeps when tried to start it up. Honestly, I don't recall all of what I have done, but I know I replaced the CMOS battery and... I am starting to get the feeling that my BOIS is not configured for the dedicated GPU anymore. I have tried cards that are known to work and I still get 5 beeps. I even tried a GT 240M from an eBay M15x I got a few years ago. Still no love. I have considered trying the M15x display to see if I can get into the BIOS. An external monitor has not helped so far. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. PowerSpec 1520: i7-8750H, RTX 2070 (115w), 32GB, 500GB WD Black NVME, 2TB Crucial MX500 SATA Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
