    Just curious, is there anything else going on besides being a modded vBIOS? Meaning, is there something special that needs to be done in order to flash a custom vBIOS?

    I downloaded this from Prema website for my 17R3 4GB GTX980M. I clicked the bat file and I get an error saying "no NVIDIA adapters found", then 2 beep and the terminal closes. Any ideas?

    For me I reinstalled Nvidia driver, reboot the computer and clicked Modme.bat then it worked.

    You may have to run GPU-Z in order to activate the nvidia GPU, otherwise it'll use the Intel GPU and nvflash won't be able to access it.

    Ahh thanks for the tip, already have it installed too, it could be a bad power supply im thinkng, or maybe too small, its a 250 and when she really gets going the light on it cuts out and seems to get hot.

    ill run some tests though
