    Hey there,

    Just upgraded my P150SM from 670m to 980m but it doesn't recognize the card.
    The card is 100% working because I tested it on other device.

    I've read about a modded bios from @Prema but unfortunately the links are unavailable so if anyone got a solution to this I'd gladly appreciate it.

    The thought of buying a new card and not being able to use it, meaning I wasted that much money, makes me go crazy .

    When I get into bios under VGA it says Unknown device but under Task manager it recognizes the 980m.

    If it's working in windows then the BIOS does not matter (it's just a lookup table that displays some text, it does nothing else)

    But when I run benchmark or any game it wont use the 980m but uses the integrated intel graphic instead.

    Where did the card come from system wise and manufacturer?

    Did you install the drivers yourself or just plugged it in and Windows grabbed some random old drivers?

    Can you run the stress test built in GPU-Z on the 980m?

    I would start by downloading the latest 980m drivers, then using DDU, disable WiFi/disconnect ethernet cable, remove ALL GPU drivers, reboot, install latest Nvidia drivers and see how it goes.

    Not sure if you need modded drivers or not.
