    Hello,

    Thank you for your hard work. I assume that this driver won't work with an Alienware 17 R1 with 120hz display without some changes? I have a GTX 970m installed at the moment with the most recent bios update. Am I right in assuming I just need a modded driver for this graphics card to work properly with my machine. If this is the case is this similar to that of the person on page 6 or is it specific to me?

    Any help would be very much appreciated and am happy to contribute.

    Luke

    Hi, you are right, this modded inf won´t work on your m17x, in order to know if the other modded inf will work or not, post a hardware id screenshot of your 970m card.
    Just like the older post, with that info i'll be able to mod the driver inf for you and tell you how it´s done for future updates.

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.wikihow.com/Find-Hardware-ID?amp=1

    Follow those instructions in order to get the hardware id of your card, if you dont know how to do it.-

    Hello,

    Thank you so much. Here is the hardware ID:

    PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_13D8&SUBSYS_05AE1028&REV_A1
    PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_13D8&SUBSYS_05AE1028
    PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_13D8&CC_030000
    PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_13D8&CC_0300

    Also I'm not sure if you'll know but I think the vbios for my card is wrong. It is 84.04.85.00.0B (Modified). I think it is for an Alienware 18 but was hoping you could confirm or knew anything.

    Thank you again for all your help!

    Luke

    In your case the Hardware Id for your m17x R1 is 05AE, so you should follow the same instructions that are on page 6, but using this string.

    That way you should be able to mod the driver every time you need to.
    I have also modded it for you, so you can try it and see if it works.

    Check back with me if anything goes wrong.
    Good luck.-

    The vbios version you posted, indeed seems to come from an m18x, it shouldn´t be an issue tho. You´ll just have to try it and see how it works.

    Hello,

    Thank you for all the help so far.

    Unfortunately, when I went to install it, in the very first section checking system compatibility it says this Nvidia driver is not compatible with this version of windows. This graphics driver could not find compatible graphics hardware.

    Should I try removing the current drivers installed using DDU?

    Thanks,

    Luke

    Sorry my mistake. I got it working.

    Thank you so much for your help and the instructions on page 6 so that I can keep my drivers up to date.

    Thanks,
