    Thank you, dude! Seems that I don't need to flash vbios, just keep clevo vbios and directly install newest nvidia driver!

    You must flash Prema`s 2.0 Clevo vBIOS if you want to use newer Nvidia drivers in your M18X-R2, if you try to install newer drivers with default vBIOS you get a black screen in Windows.

    Hey guys I need help!

    I have a Alienware M18xR1, with like i7-2720QM (or something, at least i7 tho.) and Dual CF 6970m. Recently the computer has been getting quite slow.

    Is this gaming laptop known to run too hot? It feels warm

    Repaste might be needed. 6970m is known to run hot.
