    There's been numerous BIOS updates for my motherboard since I've had it, a lot of the later ones have been updated microcodes for Spectre. So I can't rule out a BIOS update as a cause, but I suppose that would indicate a lowered max allowed temperature for the VRM's in one of the BIOS updates...if it is caused by BIOS update. Windows 10 can't influence VRM Throttle temperatures can it?

    Thanks! I will try, luckily no. I had custom bios made for my GPU and I can run it 975 at stock instead of 1012mV and then have it overclocked and what not with same temperature as with stock. This is actually second hand 880m bought off ebay and it performs much better than the one I originally owned.

    Other than trying custom drivers and having them not working eveything else performs fine.

    Try these drivers, I was surprised to see 780M SLI working with the LATEST drivers thanks to @j95 driver: More versions can be found here: https://premamod.wordpress.com/2017/08/15/j95-nvidia-inf/

    Be sure to boot with driver signature turned off.

    A couple of things to try...first, is your system running Optimus (Can you see both 880M & Intel HD Graphics in control panel)?

    Are you able to change which GPU is active in BIOS (880M ONLY, iGPU ONLY, etc.)

    Try putting the computer to hibernate then turn it back on.

    Those are the drivers I was trying and received the problems.

    Yes and yes.

    No, the bios doesn't have such options.

    I also tried that and it didn't work.

    Did you try using the last officially supported drivers and modifying the inf yourself?

    I tried that once already but couldn't get the drivers to be installed,
    I might have had wrong instructions, mind telling me how to do it?

    Basically, download the driver version needed from nVidia website.

    Get the modified INF from J95 website

    Reboot with driver signature turned off.


    What I do is, I copy the files I need to overwrite, then start the installer. When the installer reaches around 60% I overwrite the files in the C:/NVIDIA folder and install the drivers.

    For me, the download speed have been the huge problem. Not so much the upload. And I don’t like put my files in the Cloud. So I could easly live with a lot lower Upload speed:)
    Did you use DCH or Standard drivers. What driver versjon works for you? I mean the latest one. Tried with previous OS version(1809)?

    SO if I understood you correctly. First I copy the files as I would normally then I install the drivers and then at 60% I copy the same files again?

    Also, what drivers should I download? For desktop kepler?

    WHQL drivers since I have this GPU. Any drivers work as long they were officially released for my GPU by NVIDIA :D So anything below 425.13. When I tried modified drivers I tried both versions.

    No. Only with 1903. I cannot go back to 1809 anymore so that is out of picture.
