Of course I discover these after I get rid of my P4000. Perhaps it's time to play with one again 😄

the card has its bios stock, the alienware bios A14+ mod, I managed to make it start but in the device manager you don't see the display adapter, it only shows 3d accelerator and audio, it won't let me install the drivers I really don't know what Damn it happens, I put it in my other alienware 18 and everything is perfect, I only have problems with the alienware 17.

 

Is your 17 a eDP 120Hz panel or 60hz panel?

I was able to make it work, for some reason in the first place, apparently when I put the heatsink on, when I put all the screws correctly, it did not give a signal, when I loosened them, yes, so I left them like that, then when I started windows, only the 3D controller appeared, I did not identify it the card in another way, I forced the installation of the driver, luckily it worked great, and all good for now, temperatures do not exceed 68c with the P3000

OK! got this tucked away in my P4000 folder, When the time comes the m6700 will remove the GTX 980m and it will get a Quadro. I find it funny my m17x and m18x both have Quadro's and m6700 has GTX HAHA Don't tell Dell lol

Thanks!

I spent a whole day flashing vBIOS for P4000 and it crashed... vBIOS P4000 is .bin extension. It does not have the .rom extension like the usual P5000 and p3000.

Anyone have another vBIOS P4000?

I did a p3000 upgrade on my 17 as well and then a p3200 , my temps never go above 55C with minimal fans,  so your almost 70C is very high. 

 

You need early vbios for the p4000 to get work in your m6700. I can dig ip my drive to check it if i have vbios.

Thank you. I have flashed vBIOS for P4000 done. And I mounted it on Dell M6800... It seems to get a bit hot.

Its a 75w card so you did something wrong at assembly

Just ordered a Precision 7720 with a Quadro P4000.  I'll let you know how it turns out.  If it doesn't turn out well I suppose it's just an excuse to spend the money on a P5000 upgrade lol. 

 

This will be my first Nvidia GPU as I've always used AMD cards since the ATi days.  Is there anything I need to know that's different about Nvidia before I go flashing vbioses and messing with stuff?

 

 

Currently I have a Firepro M6100 in my Precision M6600 with VRAM at 1780MHz and core at 1320MHz.  I have no idea how I managed to finally get afterburner to work but I just thought I'd put it out there's it's possible before I replace the unit.

Pretty sure Pascal is the first generation where NVIDIA enforces digital signature verification on the vBIOS.  So, you can't just dump the vBIOS, "adjust values", and flash it back on.  (Well, you can, but the GPU will reject it and won't operate.)  You can however cross-flash a different official vBIOS that comes from another P4000 card if it has more desirable behavior than yours.

 

Maybe someone has found a way around this by now but that was the situation when I was messing with a P5000 back in around 2019.

All versions above are intended for iMac only, it won't work for Dell, and it will report an error. Dell vbios has a different internal structure, where the UEFI/GOP driver is before the power tables. This makes changes in the bios break some checksums that can cause error 43. I tried to modify the hexadecimal code and failed over 20 times. I asked a professional friend for help to fix the checksum error, but it still hasn't been successful. I used a language translation aigpt, sorry.

Thanks for the heads up.

I got the card and it's working great as is anyway.  I wish I could overclock it as even until it's heaviest load like 55C maximum which is amazing but also I feel like there's so much potential wasted.

 

My M6600 by comparison would hover around 80c-85cwith brand new paste.(Mind that the GPU has a 20% overclock on it as well, but it only raised the temps ~8C.)

The GPU cooling system of the M6600 and M6700 is better than that of the M6800, It has 3 copper bars instead of 2 like the M6800. I don't know what your fan speed, but for my M6800, it reaches 4500-4900 RPM and I also use liquid metal thermal. If the GPU temperature is too high, you can use Dell Fan Manager and run the GPU fan at maximum speed.. I'm still trying to modify the vBIOS for the P4000 on the M6800, hoping for results soon. A while back, I used the P3000 and was the first to overclock it to almost the default P4000. But at that time, my family went through a financial crisis and I had to sell my laptop. I didn't have the mental space for anything else and didn't want to back up the overclocked vBIOS of the P3000.

I know that veteran members like Aaron44126, TheQuentincc, Mr. Fox, ssj92... have been involved in Dell forums for a very long time, even on other forums. I'm pretty sure they have absolute experience, you can ask for their help

Hello, sorry to bother you but I'm doing the same upgrade myself (p3000 and alienware 17 r1) do I need the 120hz screen to be able to get the card running? It's detected in my bios, but not in device manager.
