Hi guys first time posting here.
I'm hoping for a little help. I have a m17xr4 quite a few years old now which has gone through a couple of GTX675m's now.
So recently I purchased a GTX680m from ebay and after installing I am getting a blank screen, with no back lighting or signs of life.Fans/Lights run and I hear windows start fine, but I'm unable to switch to internal graphics after pressing the Fn F7. If I hit enter I hear an error menu so something pops a new window up.
If i remove the GTX680m it displays fine with its internal hd4000 graphics. I have been speaking to the seller and found that the card is from the M17xr4 120hz wide FHD 3D. My model only has the 60hz screen but I didn't think this was a concern. With the card fitted the GTX680m warms up a little.
I removed the Nvidia drivers before installation through the control panel. I have tried Blind flashing the vbios with a stock bios sent from the original owner and also one from techpowerup with no change. I used nvflash v5.14.1 Dos version, I get 1 chime when I press 'y' 20 seconds in and get another chime 20 seconds later so I feel it has flashed but cant be 100% certain as I cant see.
Any help is greatly appreciated. Many thanks.

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. . .
