Why did you use Optimus anyway? Would'n be better if you change to PEG in BIOS to fully utilizes your GPU? I think the only reason to utilize Optimus if you put the new 10 Nvidia series(1050, 1060 and 1070) in some nom eDP Alienware panels.

I just tried to do that yesterday and my laptop wouldn't post , and here is why something happened to my laptop last year it BSOD and then BIOS settings were all wiped .
I thought that was wired after that my laptop no longer sees any of my hard drives !!! I freaked out and to this day it won't POST, UNLESS I Disable UEFI and enable BIOS and enable RAID (even though my drives are not raided ).

As you know BIOS windows 10 modded driver = NO POST 

:(

I am going to be stuck with old driver forever now without @J95

After installing your last driver 385.41 using desktop base on Alienware M18xR1 with two 880M I couldn't use NVENC in OBS. Reverting to old @J95 driver fixed the issue.

 

Also please include driver link in post you upload INFs as @J95 did. That makes life easier.

Did you try using the 385.69 driver mod? OBS 20.0.1 NVENC encoder is working just fine with my M18XR2  980M SLI. 

Nvidia driver link included now :)

Thanks.

 

I will wait for some new game until I install new drivers. I install them only if I need SLI profiles for something fresh on the market.

Thanks dude for the release ! I installed it on my P170EM with GTX970M after DDU. After the last reboot, I managed to play Battlefield 1 or any demanding game without issues.

 

However, after a while, the computer restart automatically and the drivers rolled back to 353.54 :(

 

This is the second time I tried to install it.... Do you have any clue ?

You need to disable automatic driver updating in Windows. I would give you the instruction but I don't have them at hand. A simple Google should get you where you need to go.

I was thinking this part was handled automatically with DDU but I must admit that I didn't get the last win10 creators ed version of DDU.

 

Do you think reapeating the process with this last DDU will do the trick ?

Dunno, might as well do it manually. 

https://www.laptopmag.com/articles/disable-automatic-driver-downloads-on-windows-10

 

Note, it will disable all driver updates for all hardware that windows 10 was automatically updating.... But if you're using a modded AW that's probably not much now anyhow.

@J95 Thank you for all the modded .inf.
You'be been pretty quiet lately, are you retiring from modding  .inf for the community or simply working on only major driver releases?

Thanks for the tip. Finally I followed another tutorial that works with Windows 10 Creators Update. There are four method to acheive this and only two of them work on Creators Update.

Yeap, installed with no modding or disabling dds. Just as on normal PC. Wow! Even thinking of trying Geforce experience (I need it for my Nvidia Shield tablet).

Confirmed. This official driver works with AW 17 (2013) + 980m 8GB (clevo) wtich Prema vbios. Even Optimus mode is working great. Can't believe it took so long. I have just downloaded and installed it- plug&play. No need to use DDU or modified .ini files.

      I have a p150sm which has a seemingly dead 780m due to a perpetual error 43 which came after a big BSOD about 6 months ago. I upgraded the laptop to a 980m and modded the inf files. The upgrade was perfectly fine for a week. One day, i left the laptop and something related to sleep or power may have caused the laptop to shut off. Since then, the laptop with the 980m won't boot. I tried many things like resetting cmos, taking out the hardware and putting it back in, and resetting bios, and buying a 230W adapter. Nothing worked. The laptop works fine with the old dead 780m in there, but now when the 980m is in there, holding the power button generates a green light flash and then the power LED goes back to orange. No sounds, maybe one tick, and that's it. What is left to try?

      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.
