    I got a nebula red R3 and upgraded to a 2920xm, used arctic mx4 paste, detected and works fine.
    BIOS is stock A12 from dell, tried unlocked bios but then my 512GB SSD Evo 840 Pro does not work.

    In the BIOS the intelHD is not detected and i can only run on a very low resolution or i have to switch into peg but then the 560m is always on and battery lasts little over an hour while it used to be 2-3 hours.

    OS is Win 10 64 bit Pro and fully updated.

    Try another cpu to rule out there being an board issue as it does happen though very rare for the cpu to have a bad igp.
