    @Sesme Hello
    I have a m14x r2, two years ago by accident the water fell and I had to change the motherboard.

    But the nvidia card of the new motherboard does not work, it has the windows error 43.
    I have tried everything and my last hope is to reflash the Vbios.
    Someone could help me by providing the file?, no logo can be found anywhere

    The only one I could find for a 2gb GT 650M was this Lenovo one. Couldn't say how well it work work on yours so flash it at your own risk. If you do flash, make sure you save your old vBIOS.

    Also make sure that the system BIOS is up to date, just in case

    No good. You can’t mess with the vBIOS on these integrated GPU’s. The graphic BIOS is part of the system bios.
    Check your system BIOS version and upgrade if required. I upgrade one version at a time just to be safe.

    what I feared.
    I have tried several versions, A8, A10, A14, A15, A16, but the problem persists, the video memory size also appears as unknown, I will continue investigating,
    thank you very much for your help.

    My guess is there’s a fault on that board.

    I have physically checked the motherboard but apparently everything is fine, I have been with this problem for 3 years I think it will be something from the hardware maybe a Vram issue.
    Thanks for the help, now i goin to sleep it's 1:45 am here in México.
