    If you post your Hardware id I could mod the latest drivers for you, but you´ll have to wait a couple of days until I get back to my PC. In the meantime you could try the steps in this post, on pages 6 and 7 which can guide you step by step to mod the driver by yourself. If you have any doubts just ask me and I´ll try to get back at you as soon as I can. Give it a try, it´s not hard, and that way you won´t have to rely on anybody to update your driver in the future.-

    Hi all, i have an m17xr4 which i installed a GTX 970m in some time ago. I am coming to ask for help as i have tried everything and i cannot do it. However, I understood the method well and I managed to use my graphics card without any problems 6 months ago before windows update made me a joke. Since impossible to recognize the card or in any case to make it work ...
    What version of windows 10 are you using (which build?)
    If you can help me modify the inf I would be grateful to you and my children too;) here is what interests you:
    PCIVEN_10DE & DEV_13D8 & SUBSYS_05511028

    Thank you,

    I'm trying to test other builds, I'm going to test the 1803 Redstone 4, build 17134!
    edit:
    ok so I made good progress.
    I saw a video tutorial on youtube:

    and I realized my mistake.
    The driver installs well but the pc restarts in black screen ... it is not yet that but I advance because when I restart in unsuccessful mode the card is well detected.
    I am testing with the latest version of windows

    edit edit ;) :
    I hope that it does not pose a problem that I put a link on the forum.
    I just want to help and especially for us to move forward and find a way out.

    Ok here are the promised .inf files. Remember to download the matching driver version from Nvidia site, extract and replace the .inf file located in Display.Driver folder. Disable driver signature enforcement as shown in page 3 of this post and run the driver setup. Be sure to acept the warning message when windows tells you this is an unsigned driver and install it anyways.

    The first file for the M17R1 will only work for the Quadro GPU, and the second one, for the M17R4, is only for the 970m.
    Enjoy and get back at me if something goes wrong.-

    Hi, thank you very much for your responsiveness, I am testing and telling you what it is.
    On my side I have a black screen when restarting

    Edit :


    Damn it doesn't work! "Nvidia installer failed". I realized that several sections had to be replaced for the pilot to settle down to the end.

    Edit 2 :
    So it's moving slowly:
    I manage to fully install the driver by replacing all lines containing 05AB by 0551 but once restarting windows freezes.
    I test with other sections ...

    Well it does not work ... what sadness! Do you think it is necessary to flash the bios or the vbios?

    for info, with your .inf I can't even get to the unsigned driver message, strange.

    however it is certain that the non certified pilots are accepted because I am in "test" mode at the bottom right of the screen.

    Thank you
