    a lot of drama happened, starting from the GTX 970M arrived at my place and finally upgraded to GTX 980M.

    after more than 1 month waiting for the GTX 970M to finally arrive, this GPU is very easy to install, plag and play has nothing to modify and the performance is very good. unfortunately after I used it for 1 week GPU error and could no longer be used because of the chipset error, I finally asked for a warranty from the store, they promised to replace it but they don't have stock GTX 970M, only the new GTX 980M is available. and they can send it by express. with disability I have to add money.

    4 days waiting for the GTX 980M to arrive, I hurriedly installed it and it turned out, it didn't match what was imagined. to install GTX 980M is not only plag and play. but we have to modify the file "nvdmi.inf" and I have spent 2 days but it didn't work.

    therefore, I beg for help from my friends in this forum as fellow AW M15X fans, along with information from the HW ID and the original NVDMI file that I extracted directly from the NVIDIA driver. I hope there are friends in this group who can help.

    finally the problem that I experienced was finished, thanks to
    Danishblunt
    who had remotely helped and shared knowledge about overclocking.

    based on the information from him the problem came from the VBIOS that I used because this vbios gave too much power, after we decided to return it to the VBIOS stock everything returned to normal

    for the record the error report from the system was :
    "application has been blocked from accessing graphics hardware"
    the behavior
    if you run game : after view second the screen went white or black
    if you run 3Dmark : after initial finish start the benchmarks the screen complatly white after sometime its went error or frezee.
