1.) Lenovo u310 (I have a Core i3 - Ivy Bridge, 8GB RAM)
2.) 65CN99WW unwhitelisted.
3.) eGPU (I used a EVGA GTX 750 Ti from another computer I had).
4.) EXP GDC mPCIe Edition adapter (got from eBay - banggood seller).
5.) ATX power supply (I used a 600W PSU from another computer I had).
6.) USB wireless.
7.) External monitor, keyboard, and mouse.
1.) Obtain and install a unwhitelisted BIOS. If you are unable to obtain a unwhitelist BIOS, I think it might be possible to bypass it with Tech Inferno Fan's Setup 1.x (may need confirmation as I haven't used it myself yet.)
2.) Shutdown computer and remove all USB devices, ethernet cables, power cables, card reader cards.
3.) Remove mPCIe wireless card and detach antennas.
4.) Attach EXP GDC external mPCIe cable to the former wireless slot and screw down.
5.) Attach HDMI end of the mPCIe cable adapter to the EXP GDC device.
6.) Attach graphics card to the EXP GDC device (I moved my laptop off the desk and onto the side shelf to make room on the desk for the monitor/keyboard/mouse).
7.) Using the power cable adapters that came with the EXP GDC device, I hooked in my ATX power supply's 20 pin and CPU 4 pin cables. Then hooked the other end (8 pin) into the EXP GDC device. My EVGA 750 Ti also required that I use an additional PCIe power cable (6 pin) in the top of the card.
8.) Then I attached my misc devices (HDMI monitor, USB keyboard/mouse/wireless adapter), and hooked in my PSU and powered it on (below is image of final product, also moved HDMI cable out of the way).
9.) Power on your computer and let it install the standard VGA drivers and then install your drivers (I didn't have to go in the BIOS for any graphics settings, which it doesn't have anyways, nor did I have to disable iGPU in Device Manager before the card was added).
I found that most games will play on med settings with about 45 FPS with this particular card.
BDO: Upscale on - Anti Aliasing on - SSAO off - med settings.
Skyrim: Med-High settings.
Fallout 4: Med settings.

I have recently upgraded my laptop(an M6800 firepro 6100) and replaced it with an GTX 980m. Nvidia says that the latest driver(461) supports my card but i can only install up to 388.13 Ive tried to mod it but i can't figure it out. I can run the latest linux driver tho

I am the owner of a HP elitbook 8770W, an old but still very decent notebook.
I've upgraded the GPU several times , first with a GTX 970M and a while later with a GTX 1070 mobile.
I've bought those cards from pretty reliable sources (a seller on Ali I know pretty well) and I knew beforehand that the cards were compatible with my 8770w.
Unfortunately, my 1070 broke down due to heating issues.
Now I can get my hands on a Quadro P5200. The original ones don't have a EEPROM chip soldered on the board, and rely on the notebook VBIOS.
However, the one I want has a BIOS chip soldered on the board with a HP max-q bios, which would be perfect for me.
Well, if it's compatible of course.
The seller cannot give me a statisfactory answer to that and I'm not sure they are willing to refund me if this is not the case.
Now on to my concrete questions:
Does the build-in notebook VBIOS matter if there is a chip with a bios on the mxm card itself? If it does matter, since my notebook does recognize other pascal cards like the 1070 and 1080, is it wild to assume that a P5200 will also be recognized? They all seem to have a 86.04.x.x.x BIOS. Is there any way to check the notebook VBIOS compatibility against the one on the card?
Thank you in advance!
