    Ok, there is something I´m not following here, your´s is the M17xR4 right?
    Cause there are no 05AB lines in the modded inf file I posted for you. (Download the one that says 471.41 for M17xR4)

    In the group of lines containing info about the gtx970m the first one has 0551 which is the one for your laptop model.

    Double check you are replacing the extracted file in the Display.Driver Folder AFTER you decompress the matching driver fron NVidias site. (Use something like 7zip to decompress the .exe file you downloaded)

    These are the steps you need to follow:

    Decompress the driver
    Decompress the file downloaded from here
    Replace the .inf file in the mentioned folder (Display.Driver)
    Disable driver signature enforcement
    Run Setup.exe from the decompresed driver

    Good luck.-

    Last question where would I get a custom bios to unlock the TDP I know Prema used to do them but is there anyone else ? Also would that then require a separate INF mod ie change the hardware ids? The card is TDP. Starved they are 75 watt so it drops it's clocks thank you Again

    Sorry, my bad, I keep thinking in gtx970 terms, just do a search in Tech Inferno forums for quadro m4000m, I remember an user named Klem that makes unlocked vbios for your card.

    First of all hi and thank you very much, so yes I had of course tested this solution but without success.
    I just restarted the same sequence and in fact the driver crashes the pc after about a minute that I authorize the execution of the driver.
    I really don't see what this can come from :(

    s it possible that the section is not the right one? currently it's 044 in your inf
    Is it a concern of bios or vbios?
    Currently I am in A15 and I do not know about the vbios because gpuz recognizes the card but not in its entirety.
    come on I keep looking, this story is going crazy!

    when i had my pc in test mode and forced a driver that wasnt for the device in this case an old wifi card lol / i never had it actually cause the pc to crash it would just say this device cannot start code 10 . akso does the pc blue screen ? with the sad face ? or just straight up reboots ?
