    First of all, new member here, so, greetings everyone. ;)

    Ok, i have a couple of 2014ish notebooks, both with quite good specs, so i figured, why not put them to goo... some use, and im having quite an issue with one of them, and unfortunatly, its the best one, im talking about a 2013-14-15(notsure) P377SM(NB 9377) MB kelplier, kepler something like that, i7 2.8/3.8 - 4810 - GTX 880m, it WAS an outstanding machine, the least portable portable pc i ever had, and it was glorious, but as some of you may know, the 880 has short lifespan, and i got lucky and managed to upgrade my system altogether, recently i've been thinking of making a "gaming station" (basically a table with bunch of toys and LEDs) for my nephew, when he found out about minecraft... well he forgot what color the sun is.

    ANYWAY, so my first issue is:
    Like me, the GPU performs OK as long you don't ask it to do any work, as soon you launch ANY kind of game, be it The Witcher 3 or Forts, it crashes. I've sent it to every single reliable tech maintenance i know and no one managed to find a solution, we even did the oven thing, nothing, so if anyone have a fix for GTX 880m please share.

    Second issue:
    So ok, fine, i'll just use the integrated, its just vailla minecraft, so i went to update the drivers just to realise, the integrated graphics is... gone, its not on the device manager or anywhere elese, im sure a i7 4810 has one, but i can't find it anywhere on the BIOS. So if anyone knows how to enable it, please let me know.

    And third:
    I keep drooling over those external adapters that you can hook on the PCIE, its ugly,messy, noisy, i love it, has anyone tried it with a P377 ?

    Thanks. Stay safe.

    You can also upgrade the GPU in those, 980m's are fairly simple upgrade I believe and others got GTX 1070's working in them too (w/120hz panel though)

    The reason the integrated is gone is you are likely in PEG mode (or dGPU) and this is likely because you may have the 120hz panel over eDP connection (the connector from the motherboard to the panel itself). In most laptops of this era, when you were in eDP / PEG / dGPU mode the integrated graphics is disabled. If this is an eDP panel then integrated will always be disabled be default.

    Im not a clevo/sager expert though, just speaking from my own experience on my AW17 R1 and some peripheral things I read around the forum.

    Researched your suggestions, yeah, upgrading the GPU is simple enough, expensive tough, i will keep an eye for sales.

    I will look in to the enabling the integrated in the bios.

    Thanks for the info mate.
