    Thank you @Papusan! I was able to get in touch with @Prema who provided me with the most current BIOS. Now I just need to start researching what is upgradeable on this machine as I'm happy to keep it and just upgrade what I can. Specifically I'd like to know if new WLAN, m.2 SSD, RAM, video card, and better fans are possible, and then find a local company to reapply new thermal paste as I'm not sure I'm comfortable with that part. Currently I have Intel 8620 AC (802.11ac) wireless/bluetooth combo, Samsung MZHPV256HDGL (256GB) m.2 hard drive, 32GB Kingston 2400DDR4 RAM (4 sticks of 8GB), and the NVIDIA 970M. Is there some magical utility out there that will scan your computer and show you what you can upgrade lol?

    1070 mxm cards (from MSI for example) can be modded in, not sure beyond that.

    For what it's worth to anyone who may still be looking to upgrade, here are the choices I have made based upon my initial review of what I believe is upgradeable. And yes, I am aware some/all of these upgrades may offer negligible benefits but lets just say I need to make some purchases for a tax write off :) .
    Hard Drive: Samsung 970 EVO Plus
    RAM: Crucial Ballistix 32GB (2X16GB) DDR4-3200
    WiFi/BT: Intel Wifi 6 AX200 w/ BT. 5.2
    Video card: Nvidia 980m
    Laptop cooler: ? Not sure yet, the market is absolutely saturated with products so I'd love suggestions.

    Is someone able to point me to a good from-scratch setup guide for the P750DM?

    Got no brightness control and some sleep resume issues, mouse pointer disappearing, fairly typical stuff, on a clean reset of 20H2 update Win10.

    I picked up a max spec P750DM with "gtx 890m" off ebay recently for a good price (always great for bidding in a vacuum when sellers typo their item names) while I rebuild the P870DM3 watercooling and heatsink, this is also a Metabox so Premabios will be on the horizon. It does need a new keyboard but if that's all I'm pretty happy

    So I read on Page 500 That a Quadro P4000 runs in a P770dm. I have a P771DM-G with Dsanke Bios and an I9-9900T ES installed. This P4000 will also work in here and maybe also an RTX 3000/4000?

    The heatsink holes position on the RTX 3000 (non quadro) cards are different.

    All 10xx series will work and will be plug and play (Except 1080, and except Zotac and Aetina versions), All Pxxxx Quadro's will be plug and play (P3000/P3200/P4000/P4200/P5000/P5200).
    But RTX3000/RTX4000/RTX5000 will be incompatible due to different from standard MXM (f.e. 980M) GPU die placement (Check photo of the RTX3000). Say thanks to engineering department of HP MXM GPU's, all RTX3000/RTX4000/RTX5000 are from HP.

    The GPU die is not so different out of range like you Said. The only problem I think is to build a bracket to hold the card in its position and maybe modifying the Heatsink. I would test it again, but the HP RTX cards are not cheap enough. I installed an RTX 3000 in my old AW18.

    If you have 3D Printer, like cheap Ender 3 or it's clone, then you dont have problems with building a bracket for GPU. Main problem - heatsink, since you definitely need to resolder it.
