    Just use the link I gave you : http://downloads.eurocom.com/suppor.../Alienware/17_R5_05AA1028_9xxM_382.05_W10.zip

    or if you need an INF mine is good for almost all laptops hardware, but it's an outdated driver - just grab the inf and replace it in the newer drivers.

    http://cloud.alezka.com/Data/980M/378.49/ should be able to browse it and grab the individual file as it's not a zipfolder

    A Huge Shout to all NBR Peeps that helped me out through this upgrade, especially to @woodzstack who always got my back despite me having panic attacks, it has been a long wait but worth it, the GTX 980M I got from You is amazing, thank you for the patience and support through all these stressful times. Also to @MahmoudDewy who was there just a message away, thanks for the help on the 4940MX CMOS and BIOS Reset. Also special mention to @MickyD1234 and @sicily428 for helping me out on the .INF mod, thanks for the awesome help.

    To all that makes NBR and amazing site, to Mr.Fox and to everybody else. Thank You very much.

    All is well now, I got everything running smooth.
