    Windows 10 Fixed Issues 

    • Cleaned up flip timing and event notification bugs. [200151547] 
    • Fixed a driver bug where if the output is active, hot unplugging a device will cause any following hot plug device to be ignored. [1707505] 
    • Cleaned up unexpected behavior related to the multi-HMD (helmet-mounted device) use case. [200152110] 
    • Return NVAPI_NO_CONNECTOR_FOUND from the NVAPI_GPU_GetAllDisplayIds() when headless GPUs are detected to allow for identification of the unsupported use case. [200155835] 
    • [GM20x] Clock speeds remain above idle at 144 Hz on desktop. [1631144] 
    • Lag in Star Wars Battlefront with SLI enabled after updating to driver 359.06. [1709067]

    i see that 361.42 is the available version for download for linux 64. When i try to install nvidia drivers downloaded from nvidia's site in my Lenovo Y500 650m SLI, my ubuntu stops working. Then i have to remove/purge everything from nvidia and install them through apt-get. Of course not this version.

    Does anybody follow the linux driver versions? I mean does anybody use the official site to download the latest drivers in linux?

      Hello everyone,
       
      I am an M17X R4 owner running WIN10 AND currently upgrading my laptop from an 7970m to a 970m.
      I have already successfully transferred my 970m to the motherboard and windows has detected the the gpu in device manager, optimus mode is enabled and the intel graphics are also detected.
      The laptop is currenlty booting in full UEFI mode and running bios A11 stock.
       
      Currently I am experiencing issues with getting the 970m to run, my Intel graphics keep running only but i can see the 970m is installed and the settings can be changed from the nvidia control panel and can be benchmarked using FurMark.
      I managed to modify an nvidia driver using the device hardware ID's (not sure if that is the issue) but i think the main reason why the 970m is being used is because i require an unlocked Bios to change which GPU it runs on?
       
      Everything up until this point has been an interesting learning curve and i feel i have almost cracked it. 
      what do you all think, any advice would be much appreciated by myself and my laptop
      Im no expert on the matter but if anyone wants any advice from my experiences above i would be happy to help the best i can. Thx

      Updated inf specific for Alienware M17x R4 - 880 GTX
       
      384.76 - W10 64bit
       
      1198 - SUBSYS 057B1028
       
      Modded/updated Vbios highly Recommended
       
      Instructions (for Win 10 64bit):
       
      DDU have to be disabled (Windows Test Mode in right bottom corner)
       
      1.: Download NVIDIA Driver package
       
      http://us.download.nvidia.com/Windows/384.76/384.76-notebook-win10-64bit-international-whql.exe
      Let it unpack and cancel installation
       
      2.: Go to C:\NVIDIA\DisplayDriver\384.76\Win10_64\International\Display.Driver
      overwrite the supplied nvdmi.inf over the one in the folder.
       
      3.: Run setup.exe and let it install the new driver.

      Thanks to Joedirt recently for setting me up with a custom vBIOS for my ASUS ROG G750JM. I am having a little trouble figuring out how to adjust my voltage. Once the vBIOS is flashed the voltage is baked in so the slider does nothing. Joedirt took care of me plenty so I dont want to go hounding him for this advice and would rather ask the community. I can get the voltage to run at 0.987v or 1.193v one is not enough and the other is too much even with no OC it gets the GPU too hot too fast I would like to learn how to adjust the Voltage Table so that I can get 1.06-1.1v on my chip so I can OC and still not over heat. The stock vBIOS set it at 1.034v which I could OC my Memory +450mhz and my core +135mhz no problem. I would like to run at +280mhz or 1300mhz core and +395mhz Memory or 1450mhz Memory but that is not stable at 0.987v and gets to the 92c temp limit super fast with 1.193v. . .

      I have  Lenovo e540 with an EXP GDC Beast 8.4d and a GTX 660.
      The nvidia display driver crashes with a black screen for a few seconds when launching some games or when the egpu is used for a while, it sometimes will recover
      My external power supply is 350W and the card has a power consumption of 140W so I do not think this is a power issue.
       
      "Event 4101
      Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered."
       
      What I have tried:
      A GTS450 instead of the GTX 660.
      Setting the PCIe port to Gen 1 in egpu setup.
      Setting the PCIe port to Gen 2 in egpu setup.
      Setting the Nvidia power management to maximize performance in the Nvidia control panel.
      Going back to the driver version 327.23, I got a blue screen instead of a crash when using this version.
      Disabling HDMI audio in the Nvidia control panel.
       
      Any suggestions or advice on this issue?
       
      Thank you
