    Thank you for this message and all the links.

    Finally got myself to update.
    Everything went fine, except two things. First one is that instead of my vendor's logo I have a random "Style Note" one. This is, however, not critical and somewhat expected.
    However, the second problem is more important - my screen is no longer detected as a G-sync one.

    Has anyone encountered the same problem?
    I've tried to reinstall drivers with DDU, also strangely I am still able to set custom refresh rates (75Hz, 90Hz...) with Nvidia Control Panel as if it was still recognized as a G-Sync panel (AFAIK this feature is only available for G-sync compatible panels).

    /edit After complete driver reinstall 75 Hz is weirdly unstable with entire screen shaking, however 70 and 80 work just fine.

    /edit2 looks like UEFI option is not working correctly - I found a topic where someone pointed out that in GPU-Z UEFI checkbox was disabled, so that meant that laptop loaded in legacy mode. I have UEFI boot selected, but it looks like somehow GSync configuration doesn't load properly. Should I revert to an older version of BIOS in this case? Or is it related to vBIOS? I did reflash vBIOS previously, but it was quite a long time ago, more than couple of months.

    Managed to solve the issue myself:
    0)Initial state - BIOS 1.06.02, EC and EC2 1.06.01, vBIOS https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/186530/clevo-gtx1080mobile-8192-160706 - G-Sync not working
    1)Reflashed my backuped vBIOS, DDU, driver reinstall - G-Sync not working
    2)Updated BIOS to 1.06.11 - G-Sync finally worked
    Source for 1.06.11 - https://clevo-computer.com/en/support-drivers/
    Not sure if vBIOS update did anything, but it is mentioned on the download page that it is not UEFI compatible, so might be because of both factors.
    So I leave the message in case someone encounters the same problem with their P775DM3-G

    Friend, I did the same as you and g-sync still doesn't work: ////// Will anyone help me restore this option on the machine?
    I've already lost faith: ///

    Yep, it's the TPM (Trusted Platform Module) state or version, it needs to be enabled for Secure Boot and makes using BitLocker more "seamless", enhancing the security of the storage of security keys :)
    To my mind, it's not advisable to disable that, it simply weakens the security of your system.
    Happy Easter :)

    The problem with bitlocker is that in case anything fails in your machine it won't be possible to access your files from another PC. I might be wrong though.

    I think you can with the recovery key if you save it?
