    Ok so i uninstalled the drivers, turned off driver signature enforcement first using shift restart then later through gpedit, and tried reinstalling the drivers. But for some reason it just wont install the display drivers it simply goes to driver installation failed. i accepted the warning that pops up during installation too and the driver installs for a second as i see the screen flicker but then it goes back to failed.

    Any suggestions?

    I have a custom vbios installed btw.

    Update: flashed stock vbios no difference. tried earlier version of drivers. no difference. HELP PLEASE.

    This is the only thing you need to do in order to disable driver signature enforcement

    1. Press and hold the Shift key on your keyboard and click the Restart button.

    2. Choose Troubleshoot > Advanced options > Startup Settings and click the Restart button.
    3. When your computer restarts you’ll see a list of options. Press F7 on your keyboard to select Disable driver signature enforcement.
    4. Your computer will now restart and you’ll be able to install unsigned drivers.
    Bear in mind that this method only temporarily disables driver signature enforcement until the next restart, so be sure to install all the unsigned drivers as soon as you can.

    Next is to decompress the file downloaded from Nvidia, (be sure to check that the version matches the inf file version downloaded from here), replace the inf file and run the setup.exe
    I would choose a clean setup option, but its optional. In the middle of the instalation a prompt will appear asking if you are sure to install an unsiggned driver, select yes and you are done.

    If it still fails, let me know and will go from there.

    (No need to do gpedit and also its veeeery important to double check driver and inf matching versions)

    Thanks for the work, my gtx970 has passed to m17xr4. But it is possible that one day he will return to the legendary m15x. It is a fantastic machine.
    I love seeing people who keep pushing these jewels to the present.
    Have a good day.

    So i found the issue blazeghost. For one my windows was beyond repair and i had to refresh it. and then I found out that windows kept trying to update my updated drivers. so whenever i installed the latest ones its reverted to 351.xx drivers lol. what worked for me was doing a rollback after the update.
    I think this an issue fir windows 10. Thanks for ur help and the inf files.

    Now im trying to find a overclocking vbios as ive watercooled the gtx970m lol.:D
