Optimus now works in Win10 using 361.75 driver

Recommended Posts

I've read accounts that EXP GDC does not work with windows 10 at all or that it only works when using an external monitor.

 

Can anyone comment on whether it will work with windows 10 and also if it work with the internal monitor?

 

Additionally, is there any advantage of getting EGPU Setup 1.30?

If it only works when using an external monitor as the primary display device, then it essentially doesn't work at all, according to the thread's tagline.

Optimus is described as having PCI-e 1.2x compressed links, along with being able to use the internal display. If you don't have one, you almost certainly don't have the other.

 

I use a PE4C 3.0 and have the experience that you describe. While the eGPU does work, it only works on an external monitor.

Furthermore, it automatically attempts to negotiate PCI-e Gen 2, which crashes the computer upon doing anything significant, because my ExpressCard and eGPU combination only support Gen 1.

 

So yes, there is value in using Nando's Chainloader, because it allows you to forcibly negotiate the connection to Gen 1 if necessary.

      I have always been a big fan of Windows 7. I have 4 Media PCs throughout my house and a laptop. I have recently updated some of them to Windows 10 Pro. I have tried everything to get them talking on my LAN. I cannot share files anymore. They all ping, but are missing in the network folder. Thank God for Plex. Any advice?

      Hi guys,
       
      I'm sorry for making another thread just for this but I really wanted to pick your brains on this!
       
      I have an m15x with a 770m running windows 7 and everything works. Rock. Solid. I'm pretty happy with it. Since windows 7 is on it's way out, I would like to upgrade to windows 10. Now I've looked into it before and had a really hard time getting the 770m to behave nicely and had all these issues with green/yellow/pink screens and I remember it being a miracle I got it to work on 7 as good as it does.
       
      My question is how well does the 970m install vs the 770m - particularly on windows 10? I would buy it in a heartbeat if it makes the install less tedious with the colored screens and all that. Especially if all the functions work on it! I have been searching the internet and I cannot find nearly as many problems with the 970m as I could with the 770m, or am I just  not looking in the right places?
       
      Thanks a million!

      Hello. I'm currently running windows 10 on bios version 1.00 and want to upgrade to 1.03 but cannot boot Ms dos flash in uefi. There is no option to enable Legacy mode and the option to disable uefi in bios is greed out. When I try booting from flash in bios, it shows black screen and returns back to bios screen. My rig is a p157sm. Any help will be appreciated as I'm looking to install prema bios mod.

      Hello
       
      My M18XR2 was working on Windows 10 with a 880M.
      Last week, I reinstalled my system, and I couldn't get nvidia driver working...
      I took the last installed modified driver, and even downloaded latest version, modified it again, nothing to do, I have same error : nvidia installation failed. 
      I only install the graphic driver too, it fail. The screen goes black, then light again, and it fail...
      Do someone have an idea how to fix this probleme ? 
      Thank you

      Hi all. I was wondering if anyone had ever figured out if windows 10 will work with the GTX 770m on the M15x (bios A09). I've found a few forum posts about it and they all end up off topic. Ive tried a few different driver versions but every single one ends up green/pink/white screening when I enable the IDT sound device in device manager and through driver setup. It is stable if I don't have the device enabled. Anyone have any advice?
