    So I used their drivers update app to update my BIOS. The BIOS update installed by the application doesn't match my SKU. My SKU was previously identified as X7Y7 in the BIOS. It installed a BIOS update that was supposed to be installed on X7X7 SKU. Fortunately the laptop boots and and runs fine except for one thing. The two SKUs only differ in Graphics card and as such gtx 1080 on X7Y7 and gtx 1070 on X7X7 (at least that's as much as I know) and therefore the SUBSYS_ID on my gtx 1080 is changed to that of a 1070 preventing me from insalling nvidia drivers. I tried installing the correct BIOS update by downloading it from Gigabyte's website but since the current BIOS defines the laptop as X7X7 SKU the moment I try to install the correct X7Y7 BIOS the installer says the device is not supported. Any solutions? Thanks in advance.

    I would actually contact Gigabyte and send it in. It's their fault, isn't it? Quite sure that's covered with the warranty

    I bought the laptop used in a local store. Also since this model was manufactured in 2017 there definitely is no warranty even if I was able to send it in. That's why I'm looking for solutions on forums.
