I have an MSI GP72 7RD laptop, and because of Corona lock down I actually want to do some gaming on it. Unfortunately the game (Call of Duty) just keeps crashing/closing.
 
I have been on different forums and found that many others have the same problem with this laptop and have advised a solution of flashing the vbios. (Some say vbios 86.04.5B.00.82 others say 86.04.5B.00.8A - I don't have a clue what the difference is).
 
I have a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050, Driver version 26.21.14.4575
 
I don't really know computers that well. Can someone please provide me with the correct file to download and some instructions on how to flash the GPU?
 
Kind Regards
 
Matt

    None of those vbios are for your card, so flashing them isn't recommended as you'll most likely brick your card. Try the following...
     
    #4 How to underclock with MSI afterburner:
    • Download & install latest version of msi afterburner. Latest version of msi afterburner can be found here.
    • Run msi afterburner and adjust the following settings... set core clock (MHz) to as far negative as you can set it. Set memory clock (mhz) to as far negative as you can set it. Click apply (check mark button) to apply the changes.
    • Retest system for issues. Leave afterburner running while retesting for problems.

    Want to save 5 to 10% on your next EVGA purchase? Just click on the associates banner to save, or enter the associates code at checkout on your next purchase. If you choose to use my code I want to personally say "Thank You" for using it.

    Laptops are best upgraded from the OEM files (MSI in your case)
     
    Flashing the VBIOS is not a thing for a rookie to try... unless they do their homework ... & know it can go sideways
     
    Make sure your OS & drivers are all up to date
     
    Read the file notes on any BIOS files that MSI has on their site ... follow the direction to the Letter, if you want to flash the BIOS
     
    DDU is a free utility that can cleanup drivers to get your Registry cleaned up when updating the GPU driver  .... run it in Safe mode
     
    Nvidia has the GPU drivers for download ... you need to know your OS details
