    isnt that the LGA listing, because the PGA listing is taken down?
    It says 1150 in the title which refers to the LGA model of this cpu mod

    I'm not sure... so do I have to buy a PGA model if I want to use it in M6800 or M4800?

    Anyone know the difference between W7R2C or THP1N motherboards?
    They both are LVDS spec and I currently have the W7R2C

    Hi, I just joined the M4800 bandwagon and I'm facing some issues from the get go.
    i7-4810MQ, 16GB, FHD, 256 GB mSATA, K2100M, BIOS running A25

    After fighting to get the OEM license I ended up buying a Win10 pro retail license

    The current issue is that the system doesn't recognize the Nvidia graphics card, not even in the BIOS It's there, I reseated it and applied thermal paste before closing the laptop: The device manager doesn't show a second adapter (nor other unknown device), The Nvidia driver installation fails at "compatible graphics HW not found".
    Do you have any ideas? Any software to detect or test this board?

    This advise is misleading. The NVIDIA GPU will always show no matter what BIOS setting you choose. If you have switchable graphics on, you will see the Intel GPU and NVIDIA GPU; with it off, NVIDIA GPU only.
    Unfortunately I cannot offer any advise for your issue. If the card is not showing in the BIOS then I've gotta think that either the card or motherboard has an issue. The system can operate without the discrete GPU installed (Intel GPU only).

    Thank you, guys... There is no such option as discrete graphics. In the video setting there is switchable (always enabled, probably because it can't detect the Nvidia card).
    The usage will be mostly VMs (that was the criteria: quad core and min 16GB) and some personal stuff (Office, browsing,etc...), but I connect external monitors which are VGA and HDMI.
    The HDMI port is not working (known issue at buying time), I wonder if this HDMI port can work with the Intel 4600 or should seek for additional hardware (another GPU or a DP to HDMI converter).

    Without the NVIDIA GPU functioning, I'm not sure if the DisplayPort will work. VGA should work though...?

    That is correct, none of the digital ports will work because they are routed to the discrete gpu, only the analog vga port will work
