Why did you use Optimus anyway? Would'n be better if you change to PEG in BIOS to fully utilizes your GPU? I think the only reason to utilize Optimus if you put the new 10 Nvidia series(1050, 1060 and 1070) in some nom eDP Alienware panels.

I just tried to do that yesterday and my laptop wouldn't post , and here is why something happened to my laptop last year it BSOD and then BIOS settings were all wiped .
I thought that was wired after that my laptop no longer sees any of my hard drives !!! I freaked out and to this day it won't POST, UNLESS I Disable UEFI and enable BIOS and enable RAID (even though my drives are not raided ).

As you know BIOS windows 10 modded driver = NO POST 

:(

I am going to be stuck with old driver forever now without @J95

Just download the desktop driver.

After installing your last driver 385.41 using desktop base on Alienware M18xR1 with two 880M I couldn't use NVENC in OBS. Reverting to old @J95 driver fixed the issue.

 

Also please include driver link in post you upload INFs as @J95 did. That makes life easier.

Did you try using the 385.69 driver mod? OBS 20.0.1 NVENC encoder is working just fine with my M18XR2  980M SLI. 

Nvidia driver link included now :)

Thanks.

 

I will wait for some new game until I install new drivers. I install them only if I need SLI profiles for something fresh on the market.

Thanks dude for the release ! I installed it on my P170EM with GTX970M after DDU. After the last reboot, I managed to play Battlefield 1 or any demanding game without issues.

 

However, after a while, the computer restart automatically and the drivers rolled back to 353.54 :(

 

This is the second time I tried to install it.... Do you have any clue ?

You need to disable automatic driver updating in Windows. I would give you the instruction but I don't have them at hand. A simple Google should get you where you need to go.

I was thinking this part was handled automatically with DDU but I must admit that I didn't get the last win10 creators ed version of DDU.

 

Do you think reapeating the process with this last DDU will do the trick ?

Dunno, might as well do it manually. 

https://www.laptopmag.com/articles/disable-automatic-driver-downloads-on-windows-10

 

Note, it will disable all driver updates for all hardware that windows 10 was automatically updating.... But if you're using a modded AW that's probably not much now anyhow.

j95 is still doing them. Just posting them elsewhere (NBR)

@J95 Thank you for all the modded .inf.
You'be been pretty quiet lately, are you retiring from modding  .inf for the community or simply working on only major driver releases?

Thanks for the tip. Finally I followed another tutorial that works with Windows 10 Creators Update. There are four method to acheive this and only two of them work on Creators Update.

Yeap, installed with no modding or disabling dds. Just as on normal PC. Wow! Even thinking of trying Geforce experience (I need it for my Nvidia Shield tablet).

Confirmed. This official driver works with AW 17 (2013) + 980m 8GB (clevo) wtich Prema vbios. Even Optimus mode is working great. Can't believe it took so long. I have just downloaded and installed it- plug&play. No need to use DDU or modified .ini files.

      alienware 15 r2 970m with i7-6700hq vbios request so i can overclock and mess with voltage.

      BIOS version backup made with techpowerup GPU-z.

      GM204.rom
       
      or can someone re direct me to one already made that will work? all links i find are dead, thanks.

      Hi there guys,
       
      I've been looking into getting a new GPU for my laptop (4-lane PCI-e) and enclosure (HP Omen Enclosure) but I cannot decided between the RX 5700 XT and the RTX 2070 (non SUPER).
       
      I did some price to performance calculations (higher is better) with some of the best prices I can currently get in the UK.
       

       
      The RX 5700 XT does perform better and is cheaper than the RTX 2070 (Although the 2070 does come with 2 games) but my main concern is drivers and from what I've heard NVIDIA cards work a lot better with eGPUs than AMD.
       
      If anyone has experience using both red & green or if anyone else has any other input i'd love to hear your experiences and input.
       
      Thanks.

      Hi guys, I am the proud owner of a Clevo p775dm3-g notebook purchased from azom.systems (authorized Clevo reseller in India, Model rebranded as Azom Legion-17.3 inches). Here are my specs:

      Core i7 7700 (non-K version): undervolted by 110 mv and turbo boost disabled in BIOS- machine uses prema mod BIOS.
      GTX 1080: undervolted by 100 mv on all frequency steps using MSI afterburner voltage/frequency curve editor. clocks are untouched.
      16 GB DDR4: Cant remember clocks.
      1440p 120 Hz screen: No tinkering done to refresh rate.

      CPU has been delidded and repaste has been done on both CPU/GPU dies with gallium based TIM-Coolaboratory liquid ultra if I recall correctly.

      My issue is GPU hitting max temp limit of 90 degrees while playing DOOM and framerate drops from 110 avg to mid 60s-70s with horrible stuttering- this is thermal throttling for sure.

      System was running beautifully after repaste at 86 degrees max/ 77 degrees average at 100 percent fan speed. A month later I decided to see how much further I could push the system and ended up undervolting the CPU/GPU and RAM even further. The RAM undervolting part didnt work as well as I'd hoped, and I ended up resetting the BIOS to undo everything and reapply the previous setting (-110 for CPU with turbo boost disabled.) 

      I noticed that immediately after BIOS reset, both my CPU and GPU temps were 5-10 degrees higher even with the undervolt/underclock applied. Also, I think the fans were a bit louder before I reset the BIOS which leads me to believe that for some reason the fans are now capped at 80% max fan speed. There doesnt seem to be a fan speed selector in the BIOS or anywhere else so I cant say for sure whether this is a fan related issue or something else.Before the reset I could override the BIOS setting and set the fans to 100% by pressing fn+1, could I have done something to that setting after resetting the BIOS ? I dont think I have damaged the CPU or GPU as temps are holding fairly steady at 90-91 degrees and laptop doesn't shut down while gaming.

      If I have overlooked something or if anyone reading this has any solution help would be greatly appreciated.
      All settings/drivers/windows version/app version are exactly the same before and after BIOS reset.

      Hello everyone,
      some time by now I flashed a custom Vbios (thank you Klem) on an Acer Predator 15 G9-591 and I started doing some tests about how far I could go overclocking the gtx 970m without running too hot. With the voltage up to 1150mV and something like 300 additional MHz for the core clock, in the strongest stress condition for both Gpu and Cpu ( i7-6700hq undervolted), the Gpu reaches a max temp of 85C (with some 86 spikes but never more than that).
      Considering that soon I'm going to relid both Cpu and Gpu and clean everything in the internals (laptop is 4 years old) I think I'm going to have some additional heatroom.
      I've already tested some further overclocking and I noticed that even if the temperatures remains under 93C (which is just for testing purposes, but after relidding temps could be nicer) graphical glitches occur and after some time most games crash. But my question is, could it be because of lack of power supply? The laptop charger provides 180W 
      Could there be an increase in overclock margins with a 230W psu or something like that? (Obviously with the same 19.5V output)
      If anybody tried something like that on any laptop model, or knows the matter, I'd like to know
