    Hello,
    I can post pictures later. My m6800 with m5000m is LVDS. Intel 4940,16 GB 1866 GSkill memory, 1TB Crucial SSD.
    I primarily do CAD work and the machine works very well and is fast. Passmark 3D well over 100 frames.
    The P5200 project machine is exactly the same except it has eDP motherboard and screen.

    If someone can supply a ES or 86-04-8B-00-25 vBIOS I will be grateful.

    If you have Optimus / graphics switching enabled, then probably the driver INF mod that you used did not select a card profile that supports Optimus. Check the "Section" in the INF file that applies to the hardware ID of your card and see if it lists "NvSupportMSHybrid = 1".

    Is this the VBIOS Chip?

    If so,would be a P5200 VBIOS from a DGFF Dell card valid to use into an MXM P5200 card ?

    I tried section 32, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, and 45, and they all had "NvSupportMSHybrid = 1," so I don't think it's that.

    The dreaded black screen! Took a lot of trial and error on my end, having dealt with that in the beginning as well. Having the official drivers, and all the chip-set/WMI/BIOS updated drivers means a lot, and must be installed prior to any attempt in installing the discreet GPU. On my end at least, it can work in DGPU mode 24/7, but improper fan control and support, leads into subpar frame-rates, weird glitches and a fan that run's at 100% under minimal/no load. As Aaron44126 mentioned, can definitely be a driver package that doesn't include/support Optimus.

    Tesla M6 is a-working, in the 6700-6800's over here :
