    Read the rest of the thread instead of just commenting at the end, there are posts in the thread that tell you exactly what you need to do.

    You need to put the GPU back in, silly. The laptop does not work without the GPU. Either yours isn't inserted all the way or is broken.

    My main problem now it is to to replace my bios chip, that I have already ordered original one, so my ex bios (lol) were able to recognize the card, but not the os, so the problem is not the card absolutely, this why I try to modify the file that can match the system. Anyway I still waiting my bios chips, now I a m using a zbook 15, :)

    The card I bought it is new, never used.

    It's also true that my old hard disk was set on legal system so next time I will try to set on uefi and then try to install again. This is not so familiar and easy.

    My 8770w really is a 8760w, I just replaced the motherboard to get the 3rd generation i7.

    Hi, it's me again, so I am still waiting the bios replacement, and in the middle time I found a big offer for a dell m6700, so it was too good and bought it.

    Now I have the same problem , should I disactivate the sicure signature to install the driver, how it works, ? when I disactivate the signature and installation I can riactivate the signature ? thanks

    My dell gpu m3000m was new.

    Ops

    Yes, you must disable driver signature enforcement and then install the driver. After reboot it will be auto enabled again.

    Thank you for you assistant , by the way now I have both age computer Hp 8770w (zbook 17g2 same type) and dell m6700

    So Hp 8770w it's much better "built", much easier to disassambly 30% better, you just remove screw from back and you disassabled most of laptop like 8/12 screws.

    But Dell m6700 altough has a bad assistant etc... HAS TWO fans, so it looks like more moderne than hp 8770w altough fans are smaller obviousily.

    Now I will resell my zbook 15, and repair hp 8770w as second laptop emergency.

    cheers
