    ok so after looking in other forums i found that other people have been having the same issues at me and the latest driver that is able to be installed from 2021 is the 466.77. I manually changed the INF file on the "nvdmi.inf" and then i did a clean uninstall, restarted to disable driver enforcement and then installed the update. Worked with no issues and now I'm happy with my laptop for sure. I'm hoping the future updated might fix the black screen issue but for now this updated will do for me.

    Glad you got a driver working, very odd that the newer ones have issues. Fingers crossed the issue can get fixed in future updates but since it isn't a supported driver for your 120hz machine then it may never get resolved.
    It must have something to do with the 120hz display as the newer drivers work fine with the 60hz in my M18x.

    No issues with the 496.13 drivers on my ranger . With nvcleaninstall you have to install it to the machine and when you select your card in the scroll down . You look for nvdmi that is dell . For the m3000m its f9 ending . For my rtx 3000 it is ij oddly enough lol the only time I got a black screen was when I picked the wrong hardware I'd . After selecting the right one it works fine but says Nvidia graphics device in task manager lol but works just fine

    Hi, I think I shared the driver for the P106M in one of the previous pages. Were you able to get it?
