    I am running no battery with a 330W spoofed to 240W (id chip swap) if that is any help. Had that setup for my older M15x.

    Have you disabled driver signature enforcement before installing new driver?

    I have updated to driver version 441 without any issues. I don't even use DDU. Just modded inf file and update like normal.

    My card also comes from @woodzstack.

    Hello guys I am new to Notebook review and just had a question. will the Aetina M3N1070-NN Embedded MXM GPU Module be compatible? (I assume yes but its better to be safe then sorry and have someone confirm since you guys have more experience ) and will the fans automatically work by themselves without needing HWINFO.

    edit: the vBIOS is 1BA1 so in theory I wouldn't have to mess with the vBIOS at all

    That one is almost certainly the GTX 1070 used on ASRock Deskmini.

    If you have native 1BE1 cards (As far as I know only the MSI ones are), it's unlikely that you need to worry about the error 43.
    But as for this card an error 43 under 378.66 or above is highly likely.

    In that case, running the latest drivers are a possible no
