  1. Hi Everybody, 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!
