ssj92 Posted July 23, 2022 Share Posted July 23, 2022 Hi all, I need help modifying 970m vBIOS to work in M17xR3. M17xR3 has no UEFI so it only works with legacy vBIOS. If newer card such as 970m with UEFI vBIOS is used, we get 8 beeps. I've been told by another person they had M5000M (980m Quadro) working in M17xR3/m18xR1 by modifying vBIOS and removing UEFI gop portion. I have tried this by removing UEFI gop and by removing ifr header and it still does 8 beep. Perhaps someone can help me modify it, maybe I am doing it wrong. I've attahced vBIOS. 970mstock = stock 970m vBIOS card came with 970mnogop = Removed uefi gop portion and padded file with FF 970mnogopnoifr = same as above but also removed ifr header to see if it helps only other option would be bios mod but that will probably be even harder. The original person claiming M5000M working has yet to respond to me. in theory this should work, when I had 8970m, I had same issue but VBE7 removes UEFI gop and the card worked for me. I do get a backlight on the screen but before posting it 8 beeps. 970m_vBIOS.zip 1 Alienware m18 : Intel Core i9 13900HX | nVidia GeForce RTX 4090 | K1675 | 2x1TB SSDs Alienware Area-51M : Intel Core i9-9900K @ 5.3Ghz | nVidia GeForce RTX 2080 | AX210 | Samsung 970 Evo+ Alienware X14 R1 : Intel Core i7 12700H 12th-Gen | nVidia GeForce RTX 3060 | AX411 | SK Hynix 2TB PCIe4 Alienware M18x R2 : Intel Core i7 3920XM @ 4.7Ghz | nVidia Quadro RTX 3000 | AX210 | Samsung 980 PRO Clevo X170SM-G: Intel Core i7 10700K @ Stock | nVidia GeForce RTX 2070S | AX210 | 256GB+2x512GB M14x (555m) | M14xR2 (650m) | M15x (980m) | M17xR3 (880m) | M18xR1 (880m SLI) | 18 R1 (RTX 3000) CS Studios YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/CSStudiosYT Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
