Under the proper "NTamd64 Section" look for %NVIDIA_DEV.060F.043A.1028% = Section030, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_060F&SUBSYS_043A1028 replace 043A with 02A1 (060F.02A1.1028 / 02A11028)

Hello,

Love the work you've been doing here, I didn't even realize my m17x R3 could be upgraded until I stumbled across this forum.

Question though:

How do you know which line to modify in the inf file?

The 335.23 drivers seem to have multiple lines pointing to the 780m under: "NVIDIA Windows (64 bit) Driver Library Installation Disk 1"

NVIDIA_DEV.119F.05AA.1028 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M"

NVIDIA_DEV.119F.05AB.1028 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M "

NVIDIA_DEV.119F.05AD.1028 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M "

NVIDIA_DEV.119F.05AE.1028 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M "

Cheers

Replace 05AE with 0490

or

What is the meaning of the "Section004" part of this string?

I have a 680M 2GB which I'm trying to get to work. Tried modding inf. It did install, but then on reboot the display never came on.

I have a 680M 2GB which I'm trying to get to work. Tried modding inf. It did install, but then on reboot the display never came on.

If you move down to [section004] in the INF you will see that this tells the driver what Windows settings and registry values need to be written. This should not affect the "black screen" problem you are experiencing. Try what BillyXq mentioned above. You may need to disable Optimus in the BIOS.

I just fixed it! I was editing the wrong .inf file apparently.

In the list op posted, nvmi.inf was meant for MSI. But in the latest Drivers (337.88) there are there are 6 files with the names nvm*i.inf! Apparently the right one to edit was NVMli.inf. It works fine now.

Hey J95!!!

I tried to follow your guide by editing the nvidia 340.43 drivers to install a gtx 770m in my Alienware m17x r4, but it said there were no compatible adapters after i tried to run the setup.exe. Is it possible for you to be able to help me? I've gotten so far but am now getting stuck on the final step and its so frustrating!!! I also disabled IGP and changed to PEG in BIOS.

Thanks in advance.
