    While you aswer me i try https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/178533/178533 84.04.35.00.05
    but i got some trouble When I play video game, I get a black screen, and 30 second later integrated graphic card start working so is like this computer have no graphic card but the fan was working

    I could make a graphic card start 1 time, but after reboot computer the problem come back

    The fan was working but the nvidia drivers was not working cause the games was using intel grapich card

    https://www.dell.com/community/imag...3D8497EA04799E6/image-size/large?v=1.0&px=999

    Now i got 84.04.35.00.0A and fan still not working graphic is working so i guess i have same problem as 84.04.85.00.0D

    It’s possible that you’ve damaged the card due to it overheating during the time when the fan wasn’t working. Also make sure that you have the thermal pads positioned correctly on both sides of the card and the heatsink is making good connection with the gpu die.
    Try to run a gpu temp test while using it to see what’s its doing. It could be crashing due to high temps.

    That is not for sure 100% cause fan is working with Fan speed software and was working with 84.04.35.00.05 but was not stable and got alot of errors
