    This is a screenshot from right after I installed the DC panel. 2017-11-30_19-49-52.png

    I was also able to make the card working on Win 10 Uefi with 388.13 driver (actually windows installed them automatically on first boot)
    The problem appears when I try to update the driver with newer/older one- after restart - black screen.
    When put the laptop on sleep - black screen on wake...
    Brightness stays on max and hot keys doesn‘t control it..
    Cold boot = black screen, have to force reboot with power key, then works...
    What remains in mind is that my problem is the combo 8760w DC+ GTX 980m.
    You are using 8770w and if you haven‘t faced those problems, there is clearly better compatibility of 980m with 8770w DC.
    No other explanation...

    I think I am just out of luck ... in a Polish forum I saw a guy with same combo as mine (8760w DC+ 980m) and he has experienced exactly the same problem as me, unresolved by now for already six months...
    I am going to sell this card.
    Will keep using my 780m, clocked at the speed of 880m.

    Did you find any solution about those blank screens? I am in the same boat...

    Brightness control works? Fan control works? Hdmi audio and video works?

    I am also interested if brightness controls work on your setup?
    Does your DP port work too?

    I have an 8770w 1080p NON-DC panel. Also looking to replace the stock K3000M with a Maxwell GPU.

    But what I haven't been able to find in this thread is the 980m MXM 3.0 cards do they ALL fit or only a certain type (A or B)? or there are no "standards" in card dimensions?

    3.0b is what you need.
