    Below are the links and their recommended installation order.

    Before running or extracting any of the files you downloaded, make sure you read this: "Are you sure you want to run this file?" [Yes or No]

    Note: When asked to reboot, follow the instructions and reboot it would only take a few seconds. do not take any shortcuts, I personally reboot after every driver installation whether or not I was asked to reboot by the driver and/or Windows itself.


    Note: After you download any driver, before extracting it, right click on it, go to properties, then hit UNBLOCK from the bottom right since this file came from the internet, then extract it. If you don't do this then all the files you extract will have a BLOCKED Status often leading to erroneous or incomplete installs.

    1) Intel Chipset Driver v10.1.18460.8229

    Intel Dynamic Tuning Driver v8.7.10200.12510 (only for laptops with an overclockable processor)

    2) Intel Rapid Storage Technology v17.9.1.1009 (only if you've installed Windows in RAID Mode otherwise you can skip this and proceed to install the Samsung NVMe Driver listed at the bottom if you have a Samsung NVMe SSD and have installed Windows in AHCI)

    RAID Driver v17.9.1.1009 (only needed if you want to pre-load the RAID Driver while installing Windows so you can place this on the USB stick which contains Windows)

    3) Intel Graphics Driver v27.20.100.8439/ Intel Graphics Command Center

    4) nVIDIA GeForce Driver v456.38 / nVIDIA Control Panel
    nVIDIA GeForce Experience v3.20.4.14


    How to properly update your nVIDIA graphics card driver

    5) Realtek Audio Driver v6.0.8955.1/ Nahimic Driver v1.8.2.0 / Nahimic 3 App / Realtek Audio Control Panel
    Install the Realtek HD Audio Driver first then reboot, then install all other drivers before connecting to the internet. Once you have connected to the internet, to ensure Nahimic works properly, update the audio components and reboot yet again before attempting to install the Nahimic App from the Windows Store:

    Open Device Manager > Software Components

    Then right click on each one of the following components and hit Update Driver and let Windows download the update automatically then reboot, Nahimic would work after that:

    A-Volute Nh3 Audio Effects Component
    Realtek Audio Effects Component
    Realtek Audio Universal Service
    Realtek Hardware Support Application

    ================================================
    Samsung NVMe Driver v3.3
    RAID Driver v17.9.1.1009
    [if you're installing Windows in RAID mode, you need to unzip this driver and place it on your Windows installation flash disk to load the driver during the partition selection otherwise you won't even see your RAID partition(s)]
    ================================================
    First, go into your BIOS and try to remember or write down all the settings that are currently in place, especially your boot mode if it was AHCI or RAID and any overclocking/undervolting settings you may or not have had.

    1) Download the BIOS

    2) Ensure that the ZIP file is NOT blocked by following this guide:"Are you sure you want to run this file?" [Yes or No]

    3) Unzip the file which contains the BIOS and place it in the root of C:

    4) Reboot and enter BIOS by spamming the DEL key

    5) Go to the Advanced Tab

    6) From the bottom, you will find UEFI BIOS Update, click that

    7) You will now see a list of your partitions, keep choosing one after the other until you locate the partition which has the BIOS file, you will be able to recognize it easily by looking through the list of files and locating the BIOS file name

    8) Click on it and proceed with the update, you will be prompted to reboot, do that when prompted.

    9) The BIOS will start updating, during the process, DO NOT turn off your laptop under any circumstance even if it stays with a black screen for a long time, let it continue.

    10) You will eventually see the MSI Logo followed by another reboot, wait for that reboot then spam the DEL Key to re-enter BIOS

    11) Your BIOS will be reset to defaults at this point so make sure to reset everything back the way it was ensuring you select the proper boot method (ie. AHCI or RAID)

    1) Download the EC Firmware


    2) Ensure that the ZIP file is NOT blocked by following this guide: "Are you sure you want to run this file?" [Yes or No]


    3) Unzip the file which contains the EC Firmware


    4) Disable your Antivirus as it may interfere with the EC Firmware update process and might even result in bricking your laptop


    5) Right click on ECWIN.BAT in the EC Firmware folder that you downloaded and choose Run as Administrator


    6) Select Yes when asked if you want to proceed with the EC Firmware update


    7) After the EC firmware update is complete, your laptop will shut down, remove the power cable and wait for 30 seconds


    8) Power on your laptop, you should now have the updated EC firmware
