    No that's not how it works, the driver is installed in the OS and you don't need a driver to see your bios screen or even boot into Windows. Without a driver it will just come up as "Microsoft Basic Display Adapter" in Windows. You either have a bad card (or motherboard) or you may need vBIOS flashed to one compatible to our EliteBooks. If the PC completely won't turn on with the card inserted I'd say you have a major issue with the card or computer.

    I have an elitebook 8560w with a quadro fx 2800m that is mxm 3.0b card. All work fine with temperature too because the highest is 69 degree celcius but i have two problems. The first is that the gpu doesn't reach the 600mhz on core clock. It's only above 340mhz. Memory and shaders too doesn't reach the maximum frequency. The second the brightness that i can't adjust. My specs are:
    i7 2820qm
    6 gb of ram ddr3
    700go hdd
    No dream color screen hd+
    120w charger.
    Please what is wrong ?

    As far as I know no one has ever tried and it's pretty rare, not to say unobtainable, GPU to begin with.

    Don`t need flash, you need CPU with intel graphics. I am use "non supporting" k1000 in my 8740w with 540m cpu. With 720qm it doesnt work.

    I'm looking in to buy a Quadro m4000m.
    Will I need to flash vbios or will it simply be installing new drivers?
    The stock card is the fx3800.
    Will the including heatsink need be swapped out as well?
    The panel is dc display. Will I still be able to run the m4000m with 10bit colour enabled?
