I bought this laptop a while ago and wanted to upgrade its graphics card. I went with the 1070m and I've installed it into the laptop with no problem. I've installed the vbios for it and am trying to install the drivers. I know I need to have a modified driver for it to work but have yet to find one. Tried to modify one myself but when it goes to install, it says that I do not have the compatible windows or hardware. I'm new to computers, so I don't know where to go from here. These are my specs: GT70 2pc Dominator i7-4810MQ CPU 2.80GHz with a GTX 870m before the swap
Managed to find a relatively cheap MSI 1070 on ebay, and after reading a few success stories that 1070's are compatible I decided to pull the trigger. Modified the bottom case as per the photo on this FAQ page http://www.eurocom.com/ec/faqs(272)ClevoP150EM_SagerNP9150_XMG_P502_PRO. Things were going well until I went to screw the card down and felt some resistance. Oops. Looks like that capacitor(?) with the blue on it *just* clashes with the card. Now what's weird is not all P150em motherboards seem to have this component on it - looking at replacements this component is not there. Also looking at the photos from this 1080m P150em mod (https://premamod.wordpress.com/2017/10/10/clevo-pascal-mxm-standard/), this component isn't there either. Does anyone know what this is, and if it can be removed? Or, if this could be taken off and shifted out of the way somehow, or replaced with a smaller equivalent...? In my disbelief/annoyance/problem solving when trying to push it down, I did notice that the card has a surprising amount of flex in it and it *can* be screwed down almost completely to a level where I feel somewhat comfortable in doing... Though I'd rather not put this strain on the card if there is a way to avoid it.
