    I have problem with installing NVIDIA drivers on my graphics card GTX 780M.
    I am trying INF file modifying, but still failed. (Newer NV driver - 425.31)
    Another problem is, when I install only one functionally version of drivers (https://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/78431/en-us), in BIOS, when I enable onboard audio, I get mostly white screen after boot Windows 10 (Win Logo + spinning dots and after it, white screen - sometimes pink or green). I don't try external monitor when I get white screen - I will try it.

    Anybody help me?

    IIRC IRQ conflict with onboard sound prevents the 780m from functioning on that generation.

    So you will need to keep it disabled, maybe use external method for sound. Not sure how people try to get around that.

    Btw, on Linux, sound works good, so I don't know why on Win not.

    @Raidriar could probably shed more light than I, I am mainly experienced with my own system but I do pick up some detail here and there from just reading on the forum.

    Remove all drivers for video and audio, boot to bios and disable onboard sound, install Nvidia drivers j95 inf mod for 780M, install sound drivers, reboot into bios and re-enable onboard sound.

    J95 inf file is for Win7/8, not for W10, so not interesting.
    Thanks
