      Hi Rideass,

      i read, that you managed to upgrade your 8760w to an 980 gtx gpu. iv got a 8760w and my mainboard crashed last week, so i plan to repair it perhaps with the mainboard of the 8770w and then upgrade the gpu from the old quadro 3000m to a gtx 980m, these is the theory...

      so could you tell me what you did, to upgrade to 980?

      thanks for your help,

      best chris

        Wow, wrote a long reply. then I am limited to 420 characters. Most of the information in there about the swap should be in my posts. It will work on the 8770w as well for sure. You just need to use a custom driver to be able to install it in Windows. Linux works fine as the hardware string gets different. Dell and Clevo vBIOS cards seems to work fine.

      I see that in your sig you show the resolution of your 8740w's screen as 1920x1080 instead of of 1920x1200. I figure you have a typo and not a screen transplant!

        Haha, yes.. Bad habit from discussing the panels in the newer Elitebooks only being 1080p. So yes, type-o. Its a 1920x1200 panel alright!
