Ok, that's interesting. Optimus (SG) will not work with the 120Hz display so it will be interesting to see what happens. 

So, I finally received my new 1070 which was completely compatible with my M17x R4. I installed the modded drivers, put the heatsink on with new 2mm thermal pads, and started the computer up flawlessly. I also today received my 330 Watt PSU. Only problem is that I'm getting temperatures of 85C under heavy prolonged loads. What is your cooling solution?

Awesome! The hardest part is getting it working. If you've used 2mm pads across the whole card then I think this could be your problem. From everything I have read before, you need 1mm pads in most areas and also a 3mm pad in a few spots. If the pads are too thick then the heatsink may not form a good connection with the GPU die, which is the most important thing to cool. I will see if I can find the pad placement guide for you. Also have a look at your GPU fan. There are a few different ones with varying CFM's. See if there is a Dell Part# or CFM rating on your fan.

I so, I have changed them to mostly 1mm thermal pads. 

 

But i see that most of the thermal pads I have changed (Vram especially) aren't  great contact with the heatsink.

 

For some reason I want to upload a picture of my thermal pad setup, but it won't pet me....

Did you find a thermal pad location guide? I was getting higher than optimal temps when I got my 1070 to work and then I found the placement guide over on NotebookReview and I dropped about 8-10 degrees once I got it right. I'm pretty sure it was a post from MrFox but I'll see if I can find it for you.

      My laptop's CPU is i7 4700MQ, iGPU is GMA HD 4600, and dGPU is NVIDIA GeForce GTX860m.
      Please send me a modified BIOS(.ROM) file with GMA HD 4600 disabled among the two graphics.

      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?
