    Can anyone share good M6700 battery replacements (brand and/or supplier) that you trust or have good experiences with?

    eBay has plenty and for cheap often with very little or no use, the same goes for HP and Lenovo as I've had some great luck thus far. Just be sure to shop around and only buy oem.

    Hello, I have a Dell M6700 Leptop with an Nvidia upgraded Quadro M4000M (upgraded from K3000M). All drivers from type 466.77 no longer work. All older drivers will also work, only newer ones will no longer work. All newer drivers produce a black screen after installation. The laptop works, but after the uefi logo "DELL" I have a black screen. I've tried all the newer drivers, including the 496.13.
    I know how i have to mod the driver.
    Can someone help me analyze the problem? Is that a bug in the driver from version 466.77?
    Can anybody test with an M4000M the new driver 496.13, please? Is it working?
    All older drivers are working and the 466.77 is working to.
    Thank you

    I had a similar issue on a 7710. I posted in that forum at the time not long ago. I just went back to the prev driver I had.

    Looks like I did not post about it (I cannot find that I did). My solution was just to go back to the driver I had working and leave it at that. I do have hybrid graphics turned off on the 7710.

    Hi , I have a m6700 with firepro m6000 , and it will be upgraded to 970m 6gb as i see now , the x-bracket needed from the amd vga cuz the screws and the thread is shorter than the nv card, the heatsink no further mod needed , just the pads need to placed correctly .

    I also have a question regarding a Quadro M4000M upgrade, but mine is about overclocking. I had no problems overclocking my K5000M VBIOS, as long as I had Optimus enabled, but when I was doing the same process with the M4000M (and its respective VBIOS) I encountered a Hardware ID mismatch. I am aware that this is the reason we have to edit any GPU drivers but I am curious if signing a new firmware would be detrimental? The firmware ID ends with 16DA (as does the parts of the driver we have to edit), while the adapter ends with 053F.

    Heard good things about KingSener batteries on aliexpress, they have the legitimate full capacity and seem to be fairly reliable. I'm buying one soon for my m4800
