    So... I've been using my GT72VR 6RE Dominator Pro Tobii for a while already

    I had the constant-crashing issue... So i used the "Fix" 8A bios, now i'm reading that the "fix" is not good at all, so.. what do i do?

    Is there any better bios? I've been seeing people talking about voltage... I cannot touch the voltage on my 1070 on MSI Afterburner, it is grayed out :S

    Buyed my laptop on january 2017 so for sure it has the problem.. should i RMA?


    How should i make the curve? can anyone post me a picture? never used it before

    If the fixed 8A BIOS works for you than previous one you had then by all means keep it. If MSI cannot see the problem then they will update the firmware on the card and then return it back to you unless the card itself is truly defective.

    I am in desperate need of help, i don't know where else to look and this place seemed to have the most information on this. I don't have the laptop models mentioned in this thread but i do have the original Vortex G65VR 6RE model where the defect originated from. I have already went through the tiresome trouble of RMA but it ended in nothing being done. I have tried changing the voltage with MSI Afterburner but it won't allow me to no matter what settings i change. It also doesn't seem that the "8A" bios is compatible with my pc, as it tells me it is the wrong file size. Is there something that can be done? I have also attached a GPUZ statistic.

    Do you know how to extract files properly?
    "Wrong file size" has nothing to do with the vbios and everything to do with not extracting files correctly.

    Go download the free trial version of Winrar.
    Then use that to extract zip and rar files.

    Then use the newest NVflash to flash it.
    here is the .8a vbios

    And you can't CHANGE voltage in msi afterburner. As has already been discussed multiple times (did you do a search?), you have to LOCK the voltage point on the graph with the L key, and hit apply.
    Control F brings up the voltage frequency curve.

    If your system does not have a gsync video card, you cannot flash a gsync Bios onto it. The 8A Vbios is gsync, as well as .0D and .44. Before, you could override the error with nvflash -4 -5 -6. I assume that doesn't help now?

    Unfortunately no. I have even tried the -j -f --protectoff parameters.

    @Nemesis90 does your card support gsync or not?
