    I no longer provide current support for Alienware products and no longer own any Alienware systems to test with.

    My recommendation is to use @j95 driver mods at this time. This driver mod from j95 is your best bet for newer games, but those with 780M SLI may continue to have bad performance due to unexplained throttling problems.

    Hey

    I have a GTX 780m on an Alienware M17xr3 Windows 7.

    ^ I followed that to get it fixed

    I am trying to update my graphics card to 372.70 so I can play Battlefield 1. As it is I have no idea how to mod it so I can update. Your update for 344.75 is working wonders for me. I did some research and tried to find a modded update for it and simply couldn't. Whenever I try to update it normally Nvidia installer doesn't recognize it my driver (as I expected) so I was wondering how I could go about updating.

    I've installed newest 372.70 to play Battlefield 1 Open Beta and they work really good. One need to force SLI BF4 profile to get it working in BF1 open beta.

    Hi everyone!

    I'm new to the topic, but found the forums to be useful while assembling a modded Precision M6700 - a CPU upgrade and GPU replacement. The GPU thing seems to be a bit tricky though. As the unit fits my MXM slot I thought it'd be easy, yet turns out I can't get the drivers to install properly. Followed some instructions, tried modding INF files, finally brought me to @Mr Fox's method with desktop drivers. However, it still seems that the laptop is not within it's full potential. Does anybody have any experience with GeForce GTX 880m under the hood of a Precision series laptop or am I the first to try that config?

    Win10/8.1 'F8' Boot options 'Safe Mode' & 'Disable driver Signing' cmd (Admin) bcdedit /set {default} bootmenupolicy legacy

    -> reboot -> F8 -> select 'Disable Driver Signature Enforcement' -> Install drivers

    You need to do it only while installing drivers. You can re-enable it later after installation if it bothers you.
