    Hello everyone, I changed the GTX1070 for my Alienware M17X R5 today, but when I enter the game, the power light and computer screen will be turned off, I have to re-plug the power plug and plug it in again, but when I enter the game again This problem occurs again. Is my 240W power adapter unable to use the GTX1070? In addition, my CPU 4700MQ has unlocked the frequency to 3.4Ghz! Do I need to replace the 330W power adapter? Please help me, thank you

    Shouldn't be any problems running the 240w AC adapter just not recommended once you start overclocking.

    What 1070 did you get?

    Then I need to replace it with a 330W power adapter?
    My GTX1070 is produced in China, not MSI.

    First of all you should disable power adapter recognition in the BIOS, this has helped sm of the guys here, who had upgraded to a 1070, iirc.

    Your screen model is the TN screen of N173HHE-G32? I just bought the IPS screen of N173HCE-G32 today. I don't know if it can be used. I'll wait a few days for express delivery to me to test whether it can be used or not.

    Will disabled power adapter identification work for computers that have been CPU frequency unlocked?

    Can you post a VBIOS of that card. I want to know what bios is used in that card.

    I just broke my panel so I am not using it at the moment but yes. I cant seem to find anything that says the N173HCE-G32 is IPS, just that it has worse color reproduction than the N173HHE-G32 and 10x the input lag.

    Already uploaded to mega, the default frequency of this card is 1442Mhz, you can use MSI Afterburner to unlock the frequency to 2442Mhz, but I dare not unlock, afraid it Boom, I don't know if other brands of 1070 graphics card can unlock so many frequencies.

    Thank you. I'll keep it in the mean time. Does the slider reset when you hit the CHECK mark?
