    It will just have a blackscreen on boot and shut itself off after a few minutes whether the 6700k or 7700k is installed.

    The BIOS most likely is under the keyboard but since my model is different: P775DM3-G maybe wait until someone with a similar model comes along. @Mr Fox can you help?

    I checked under the keyboard and didn't see anything that looked like a bios chip. I'm hoping to get some input before I just decide to tear the thing apart. Still don't know how to use the skypro programmer.

    For example in P775DM3-G the BIOS chip is this one.

    It's in the far left of the motherboard under the keyboard (you need to tear down the whole laptop) [​IMG]

    Sounds like it, unless you missed something simple like not clearing/resetting NVRAM/BIOS settings or neglecting to check and update GPU VBIOS GOP/UEFI version first

    Look for an 8 leg black rom chip like the winbond chip in the above pic ^^^ but instead labelled "U12" on the P870DM - it's almost directly underneath the top right corner of the touchpad - which means you have to disassemble to the point you can remove the upper case (~30 screws and a bunch of connectors and ribbon cables worth of fun)

    Look on youtube for how-tos for your programmer, the main source of frustrating problems is the connector not getting good contact with each leg of the chip. If you haven't used it before it can be really tough to troubleshoot no connection or no data read: bad clip contact vs the clip is upside down vs the BIOS chip is not supported vs the BIOS chip is bad vs the SPI bus preventing on-chip programming ...
