    I may be wrong, but it think you need to go to a PURE UEFI setup to get the Maxwell and Pascal GPU's to work. If you still have your old GPU, stick that in, make sure the settings are in a PURE UEFI mode, and then swap GPU's again.

    Do you still have the old graphics card? I'm guessing you upgraded to a 980M.

    Well, what you need is the old GPU, with the old GPU, you can guarantee get into the BIOS and adjust the settings.

    Edit: It seems that you're not a native English speaker, If you feel comfortable using your native language, I might be able to use a translator to speak to you.

    Take the 980M out of the Laptop, you should be able to boot due to the CPU having integrated graphics.
