    I see, looks like you have found the way to do full reset.

    Still a bit of a hassle but at least is a way to cure settings related to UV too further in the BIOS and caused the laptop unable to boot.

    I'll update the front page and link your post later on.

    Oh it's still required to load Optimal Settings?

    So you have activated Fail Safe mode?

    Is it the same even with the RAM on stock timing and frequency?

    Unsure about fail safe mode, I may give this another go and see what changes were done. I was more in a panicked state and didn't have the foresight to dig through every option to see if all settings get reverted (SGX, IMON SLOPE, PEG0 ASPM, ETC), I was more worried the wife would wake up in 3 hours and be unable to work cause I bricked my laptop which she is borrowing for her job currently. Was sweating bullets at 2:30AM.

    Maybe when the 1650X arrives I will try this reset again and report back .

    I bought an AX1650 and my GS75 does not recognize it in the bios, it does not work. If you get it, I'm very interested in it. What model of laptop do you have?

    Are you also unable to install the driver in Windows?

    It is alright,

    As long it gets reset, it means we can do undervolting in the BIOS and if the laptop fails to boot we can still use this method.

    It's a bit of a hassle though.

    You can not install a driver to a device that does not exist ... if the bios does not see it, it does not appear in Windows either.

    Case is different in some laptop, like Clevo's P170EM, if you install a 970M, BIOS can't see it too, but in Windows the driver can be installed and used normally. Have you tried it?

    Yes, when I boot on Windows, there was no wifi network card.
