    Hello good folks!

    I just upgraded my laptop with an MSI gtx 1060, and all went well and successfully booted. But I have stuttering and gpu not recognized. I did a DDU cleaned nvidia drivers, have no other drivers installed atm.

    Here is the picture of my BIOS, Prema v2.

    Here is a pic of my bios

    Edit: on device manage the display adaptors shows "microsoft basic display adapter"

    How do I fix this?

    thanks!

    Thanks prema, works great now! My gtx 1060 is showing up :) :vbthumbsup:

    Btw in your last step the NVIDIA CONTROL PANEL -> CHANGE RESOLUTION -> “USE NVIDIA COLOR SETTINGS” is not changing to nvidia colour settings, it goes back to default. This wasn't the case with my last gpu. Can I fix this?

    I googled it and there is a way to change the Output dynamic range from limited to full but I dont have that.

    edit: one more thing it still shows as unknown in BIOS. Maybe thats normal.

    I have another issue, I get really bad temperatures, 90+ degrees on idle. :( Got the 780m heatsink.

    The GPU die has a lesser height, hence it needs a shim soldered to your heatsink otherwise you will suffer from high temperatures.

    Unknown in BIOS is normal, the GPU is not detected in premas BIOS as a known GPU.

    Yeah looks like it as I just checked, as there is a small space between the gpu die and the heatsink, but how much of a shim should I get in mm?

    also would bad thermal pad layout cause this heat issue?

    I think 1mm - 1.5mm should do the trick.

    Allright, I will try with 1mm and what is a good temp on idle? just so I know if it's working.

    you think 30x30x1mm is good or is it too big?

    The nv color problem is a 1803 issue...

    Not detecting and supporting new GPUs without driver Mod is normal for the public Mods.
