LG and samsung monitors are both affected as far as I remember. There is no pressing reason to try the newets drivers anyways since the old branch is better than the 350s unless you need an optimisation for a very specific game.

my question is are the latest drivers for 8.1 safe to use?

i also have an AUO panel that i can spare for those testing win 10 on the AW17 R1. will send if there's a person willing to pay for the shipping.

  • Rocket League - Added SLI profile
  • World of Tanks - Updated SLI profile for Windows 10

DriverVer = 08/25/2015, 10.18.13.5582

Is it possible to try this drivers on windows 10? I do not know how to make the proper mod inf for that :D.

Currently I am using 353.62 with your inf and no problem as I said in the other thread. I know there is other people like Mr.Fox with biiiiiiig issues and broken LCDs. I do not know why the hell it happened to them but I would like to give them a try as mine is not broken :P

Correct, nv_dispi.inf Win 7/8.1. Remember to disable driver signing before installing drivers (Win 8.1).

I'm on win10 with 352.86, working great, but how can I update newer game profile (like MGS V) into older driver?

Install GFE to update all profiles, once updated...uninstall GFE ASAP...;)

- - - Updated - - -

[MENTION=1756]twin snakes[/MENTION] even v352.86 is not safe...if you stick to win10 then don't switch graphics or enable/disable SLI *whatsoever*.

[MENTION=2750]Miguel Maroto Madrid[/MENTION] like twin snakes update profiles using GFE.

v355.00 is the latest mod/throttling... since then I've been using stock due to vbios testing, as I said keep v350.00 and update profiles using GFE.

Also using windows 8.1

Also using 355.82 driver with no issues.

Follow J95s instructions properly and you should be fine mate. Also make sure to run DDU in safe mode before new installation

GeForce developer driver v355.84.


GameWorks
Fixes (over the R355 UDA 355.82):
Fixed a bug related to runtime installation without an HMD connected.
Fixed a bug related to the use of older GPUs with <4 heads

Known installation issue:
Conflict between the display driver and the Oculus 0.7 runtime sometimes causes a BSOD at installation of the 355.84 driver. It is recommended that you stop the Oculus runtime service, install the GeForce driver and then start Oculus service.

Could you go into more detail? I'm quite computer illiterate.

My startup doesn't have F8, only F2 and F12. I have disabled driver Signature enforcement, and typed in the bcedit thing from elevated cmd.

Still getting the graphics driver installatioon failed.

Thanks

If you look through this forum all the needed instructions have been explained step by step so even the least 'computer savy' can follow!

Take a look at this page. It has a step by step guide including photos on disabling driver signuature enforcement :)

http://www.howtogeek.com/167723/how-to-disable-driver-signature-verification-on-64-bit-windows-8.1-so-that-you-can-install-unsigned-drivers/

Do you know how to use J95s INF mod file and how to extract driver/replace this file prior to install?

Yeah, done all that.

Yes, have replaced inf file. Not sure what disable driver signing is though.

I was asking about

Win8.1 'F8' Boot options 'Safe Mode' & 'Disable driver Signing'

Open command prompt as an administrator.

mainly.

      After the most recent Windows 10 update, my Clevo Control Centre has stopped working properly. When I try to change the fan speed nothing happens and this is causing my laptop to overheat when playing certain games. This has happened before but using malware bytes seemed to work; that was a free trial so I no longer have access to this. 
      Please can someone help? I'm at my wits end with this.

      So I just received a 980m in the post and after installing it I was greeted by multiple system crashes on my Alienware m17xr4 and was unable to install new drivers.

      Is there a step in the intallation process I missed? A bios setting I was supposed to change? The laptop is already set to UEFI mode in preperation for this and upon putting the old 680m back in the system it now works again. I have heard that I need to change INI files to install drivers but I expected it to at least function without large bugs such as these. Do you think that this GPU is faulty or have I done something wrong?
       
      Thanks for any help you can give.

      Hi,
       
      I've recently got my hands on an M17x R4 Alienware Laptop from 2013 which I love. I've replaced the screen, keyboard, RAM, and hard drive to make it into a fully modern laptop. However, I'm currently waiting on a replacement for the 680m GPU with a 980m from ebay. My question for you all is, do I need to do anything with the BIOS to make this 980m work? Is there a way to prevent the laptop from using Intel HD Graphics with Optimus? I think the Intel HD Graphics on this laptop are currently broken as I see static-looking dots flash on the screen. (See image below for example). My theory is that because Intel HD Graphics with Optimus is still in-use while in-game, the dots are being caused by it.
       
      Thanks for any help in advance.

      Required items:
      1.) Lenovo u310 (I have a Core i3 - Ivy Bridge, 8GB RAM)
      2.) 65CN99WW unwhitelisted.
      3.) eGPU (I used a EVGA GTX 750 Ti from another computer I had).
      4.) EXP GDC mPCIe Edition adapter (got from eBay - banggood seller).
      5.) ATX power supply (I used a 600W PSU from another computer I had).
      6.) USB wireless.
      7.) External monitor, keyboard, and mouse.
       
      Steps:
      1.) Obtain and install a unwhitelisted BIOS. If you are unable to obtain a unwhitelist BIOS, I think it might be possible to bypass it with Tech Inferno Fan's Setup 1.x (may need confirmation as I haven't used it myself yet.)
      2.) Shutdown computer and remove all USB devices, ethernet cables, power cables, card reader cards.
      3.) Remove mPCIe wireless card and detach antennas.
       
       
      4.) Attach EXP GDC external mPCIe cable to the former wireless slot and screw down.
       
       
      5.) Attach HDMI end of the mPCIe cable adapter to the EXP GDC device.
       
       
      6.) Attach graphics card to the EXP GDC device (I moved my laptop off the desk and onto the side shelf to make room on the desk for the monitor/keyboard/mouse).
       
       
      7.) Using the power cable adapters that came with the EXP GDC device, I hooked in my ATX power supply's 20 pin and CPU 4 pin cables. Then hooked the other end (8 pin) into the EXP GDC device. My EVGA 750 Ti also required that I use an additional PCIe power cable (6 pin) in the top of the card.
       
       
       
       
       
      8.) Then I attached my misc devices (HDMI monitor, USB keyboard/mouse/wireless adapter), and hooked in my PSU and powered it on (below is image of final product, also moved HDMI cable out of the way).
       

       
      9.) Power on your computer and let it install the standard VGA drivers and then install your drivers (I didn't have to go in the BIOS for any graphics settings, which it doesn't have anyways, nor did I have to disable iGPU in Device Manager before the card was added).
       
      Extra Info:
      I found that most games will play on med settings with about 45 FPS with this particular card.
      BDO: Upscale on - Anti Aliasing on - SSAO off - med settings.
      Skyrim: Med-High settings.
      Fallout 4: Med settings.
