    Hello, I have a VPCZ11RGX/S and I have installed the hacked bios, set the card to static, and have patched the last several nvidia drivers without any luck. When I boot up in speed with the hacked drivers installed, I get a black screen. When I boot up in Stamina using the intel drivers, everything works well.
    Is anyone else having this issue with NVidia drivers? I have tried nvidia drivers 341.44, 340.52, 337.88, and 332.21. I have used display driver uninstaller to clean out any left over files as well.

    Try starting in VGA mode - you haven't specified your OS, so you'll have to Google how to do that if you don't already know.

    Thank you for the quick reply. I have win7 x64. I tried booting into base video that is located in msconfig with nvidia drivers installed and in speed mode, but the black screen persists after bootup.

    Hit F8 while booting to get the safe mode menu. Select the video mode there.

    If that doesn't work, try connecting an external monitor. The most likely cause of this is that your nVIDIA adapter is putting out a signal that your screen doesn't like - maybe an unsupported refresh rate or resolution.

    I think the Nvidia adapter has failed. I tried both options without any luck. I was able to get video out using the Intel adapter, so I know the vga output works.

    Good news guys...
    I just added a 600GB Intel 320 SSD into my Z1 where the blu-ray drive used to be.

    With this 3rd SSD in my computer I'll be able to run this thing for a little while longer and thus keep all these drivers up to date for Windows 8 (and beyond)

    It's pretty darn awesome that you can put three SSDs in this tiny computer.
    I also like having all Intel drives, even though they are ridiculously expensive.

    Hi there cowboy! I think it is pretty awesome that you're still around here to give information to everybody. Will the drivers be working on windows 10, have you already thought of making any updates on your hack?
    Cheers
