    Hey Fox,
    I'm keen to test these out. Care to mod a driver INF for us.

    Also i was just wondering if you also had to mod INFs for your panther 5 atm?

    Thanks. :vbthumbsup:

    Same tweak as my desktop driver mod. Replace existing files in Display.Driver folder prior to installation. Should work for mobile or desktop driver package. I just installed this on my M18xR2 with 780M SLI. Have not on the Panther 5 with 980M SLI just yet.

    This is tweaked for Clevo and Alienware. MSI, ASUS, Lenovo and other laptop owners will need to screw up the INF file for their models as explained here. All Windows 8.X.X users, remember to disable Driver Signature Enforcement prior to installation or it is guaranteed to fail. If you run HWiNFO64, temporarily disable startup with OS to avoid lockups when Windows loads without the correct display drivers.

    Supported GPUs:
    [Strings]
    DiskID1 = "NVIDIA Windows (64 bit) Driver Library Installation Disk 1"
    NVIDIA = "NVIDIA"
    NVIDIA_A = "NVIDIA"
    NVIDIA_DEV.11A0 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680M"
    NVIDIA_DEV.119F = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M"
    NVIDIA_DEV.1198 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880M"
    NVIDIA_DEV.13D8 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M"
    NVIDIA_DEV.13D7 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M"

    This should install on all Alienware models with aftermarket upgrades with the above GPUs.

    NOTE: Run DDU in Safe Mode to strip out everything from the old NVIDIA drivers. If you do an "upgrade in place" over the previous driver, you may end up with a black screen. (I did with 780M SLI after a reboot and had to redo it as a clean driver installation.)

    This is not required on my Panther 5. Stock driver package usually installs without a hitch on Clevo. But, this mod should work on the it same. Windows Registry will be set up same as Titan Z rather than a laptop.

    Edit: overclocking is not blocked on 780M SLI. Will install on the Panther with 980M SLI momentarily and report.

    Thanks Fox! :vbthumbsup:

    Overclocking still seems to be blocked for me on these new GPU drivers. Looks like the same old Maxwell effect again only.

    OK, be sure to rant over at GeForce forum. These retards are never going to get it right as long as everyone acts like good like boys and girls and drink their Kool-Aid. Let's raise some hell over there.
