    The light sequence is in the attached video. What I was asking is does it show a 1-4-1 sequence or 5-1 in flashes? In other words does the Caps Lock light up once before starting to flash the code to confirm the led is working or does it just flash the code straight away. The confusing thing is that the whole machine is working now so I don't understand what's causing the problems. Thanks

    I have never seen something like what is happening after the initial 5 blinks (which should be a problem with the motherboard if we follow the hp‘s error codes description ..)
    Which bios version do you have?

    Yes it's very confusing. The bios is quite old, 68SAD Ver. F.29

    Oh, you really want to update to the latest version. F.29 is insanely old one...

    Anyone knows whether the M4000M from Dell works in the 8760w non-DC?

    Unlikely...
    8760W is very picky for most of the GPU upgrade options...

    Hm, thanks for your imput, mirage_bg. I've read some negative results, too, but somehow I am still tempted to try :)..

    Anyway, btw. I can confirm that this method works to Bios OC K4000M beyond +135:
    https://linustechtips.com/topic/105...-kepler-and-probably-maxwell-ii-bios-tweaker/
    I flashed mine to 835, and then took it to 945 manually with nvidia inspector, and applied a moderate memory oclock of 900/1800 MHz.

    I have the i7-2670QM and Quadro 3000M, is it normal for the VRM to be so hot?

    Idling at CPU 50c / GPU 50c / VRM 105-110C


    Also, does anyone know the thickness of the thermal pads needed for the 3000M if I were to replace them?
