    I think your card might be toast but techpowerup vbios collection have a clevo file you could try.

    Yes that's the one but make sure you take a full dump of your current vbios.

    Your issues definitely look like a bad card. Drivers and bios issues don't cause artifacts like what you have.

    It's maybe worth a try but yes it could mean the card is bad.

    Just a quick update for anyone who cares :)
    The seller sent me another GTX 980M and this one seems fine finally yay ! I just did a quick test in the game and no artifact or any weird stuff like the other one. I will test further but so far so good !!!

    For the best performance should i run with Windows 7x64 since my computer is old and was optimized for this OS ( drivers etc ) or should i go with Windows 10 x64 and try to get some drivers for it ?

    You can strip down windows 10 if you like, if you could get a faster CPU that would help too.

    Was looking at userbenchmark for upgrades and it was maybe 5% at max which i dont think will do anything

    3.2Ghz to (3740QM) 3.9-4.0Ghz with some tweaking should be a nice boost.
