    @AlienHack So I checked out your youtube video, and eventually ended up on this forum. You put in your post that you used N16E-GR-A1, is there any other version that is an MXM-a that can be used. I can't seem to find any of that specific version you suggested online.

    I'm still not clear whether the 8560w is dream color display is edp or lvds.
    Even if it's edp, there are no 3.0a pascal card available so the Maxwell m2000/gtx965 will be best possible gpu for the 8560/8570w correct?

    Just purchased HP branded M2000M for my 8570w. Previous post says will work" right off the bat".?????
    Does anyone have the required files etc for this swap so I can avoid the strain on my 71 year old head?
    Thx

    hallo mate
    i think you are right... even until 5 months ago there were several posts on ebay for that specific card... but now its only the mxma ones

    https://www.ebay.com/p/NVIDIA-GeFor...-gr-4gb-Mxm3-0a-Half-Size-for-8570/2196534114

    i dont know why... sadly maybe there was no requests for them and the sellers stoped making ebay auctions for them?

    maybe try sending messages to sellers on this list that sell normal mxma 965m and ask them if they have the specific model N16E-GR-A1

    If your looking for gtx 965m half card. Eurocom.com has them.Just talking to Eurocom tech about HP branded and vbios M2000M in my 8570w and not getting it working. Got card from Alan Computech on ebay. These are for sale all over the net. Anyone make this combo work? Eurocom guy thinks it will only work with Dreamcolor??Hate to throw $350+ out the window.
