    Nope, it just came-up a few days ago, a few Chinese are trying it out in different machines, but no luck so far. I guess the way our DreamColor is wired and how our machines omit Enduro/Optimus while with DC, this GPU should work, but we'll never know till someone tries. I'm a bit hesitant to shop from TaoBao, otherwise I would've tried.

    So i got a Hp EliteBook 8760w from ebay, I got it and they havent cleaned it so i cleaned it out and repasted it, but then when i was repasting the cpu the thermal paste had came out too fast and theres too much thermal paste on the laptop I have a I7 2760qm and its getting upto 180F when it has a load on it is this normal, or should i repaste the cpu with less thermalpaste?

    Seems fine if you ask me. There was a post in another forum, where a guy literary put a whole syringe of paste on the CPU, the difference was in the margin of error compared to a perfect application.

    Has anyone tried the Gtx 965m with the HP Elitebook 8760w with the heatsink solution for the Fire Pro M5950? If so is it possible that i can have your drivers, or how do i find the HP values for the gtx 965m. and how do i flash a video bios for it? Do you have to flash the vbios on a diffrent laptop, or can you do it on the same laptop you are going to use the gfx card on? I seen that someone put a gtx 965m in the HP Elitebook 8560w. As seen here:

    Alright, I see that the values are in the videos and it appears that he flashes it from the laptop itself. But what I don't know is how many lines of text (Values) i have to put into the nvbil.ini file. By examing other files I see that it's only in there one time, But im not sure as im a noob when it comes to understanding how ini files work as in editing it, I do have some experence with yml files cause of my Minecraft Server.

    Yes, It does look like a pretty sketchy website lol. Iv'e noticed how hard it is to find mxm graphics cards, It's like no one sells them. It's ether a shady seller such as 'TaoBao', or some guy off of ebay lol.

    Yeah, that's the way MXMs go. You can't find them in your local hardware store.

    Hello guys, and gals. Iv'e been doing research on the on the nvidia driver ini edits and im having some problems with finding a ID for where the '????' is I don't know where to find this number but for the most part I figured it out, Heres what i got so far for the Nvidia driver file for the Hp Elitebook 8760w: NVIDIA_DEV.????.1630.103C I know that 1630 is for this laptop model, and that 103c is HP, But I have no clue where to find the part where the ????'s are, If you can help me with this I'd be glad to post my results on how i will get a GTX 780m to work in my laptop (HP Elitebook 8760W)

    I'm not sure how you do it, but let me tell you how I do it and works every time (780m on 8740w including). Open your Device Manager and check the Hardware IDs. For example 8740w with K3000m results in PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_11BE&SUBSYS_1520103C where 1520 is for 8740w and 103C for HP (you already know that, but for someone who doesn't). Now search in the ini files for 10DE&DEV_11BE (again, example, yours would be different) and edit everything behind it, at every occurrence in every ini that has it, with your data - &SUBSYS_1520103C, or just 1520103C. Don't forget to save. It should install now.
