    Take a look here. I have also P4200 from HP and after soldering Winbond W25Q40EW chip, you can proceed with flashing vBIOS there. My P750ZM cannot support any of vBIOS'es, one month of trying to get it work ended with forgetting about it finalizing it with posting it on market..., maybe because of no optimus support who knows. On P750DM-G card works well.

    Awesome. Thank you! Can you recommend a vBIOS file?

    Edit: This is the chip right? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/124089954403?hash=item1ce4567063:g:OskAAOSwf2ZeTW8O

    Thank you sir for the detailed tutorial about inf modding for this GPU specifically.
    Thanks to you, I've succeded in upgrading a Clevo P150SM(NON A) with an Nvidia Quadro M4000M.
    Will post evidence, details etc in a minute.

    Clevo P150SM, upgraded with a Nvidia Quadro M4000M,
    All works fine, weird thing though for anyone looking to attempt the same, the BIOS says the VGA card is unknown, and without Clevo Hotkey installed prepare for terrible fan curves.
    Also if you're attempting this make sure you get a M4000M with a dell vbios, the hp one is apparently quite funky.
    Other posts on notebookreview that helped me:
    INF MODDING for this Card, gracefully provided by:
    Successful MXM GPU Upgraded Laptops | Page 104 | NotebookReview
    Message by MrBorsky(I don't have much extra to say to that message aside from the fact that you need to change a bit more than MrBorsky did(In my case it was changing the 7005 to 5106)
    And this awfully useful youtube video to help speed up and clear up questions:
    Nvidia .inf driver mod tutorial - read below. - YouTube
    Sidenote; My Temps after the upgrade:
    [GPU]@70c 4hr run on unigine heaven with performance mode
    [CPU]@93c 4hr run on unigine heaven with performance mode connected to the wall (It's probably not making proper contact, but oh well)
    NOTE: PremaModBios is installed
    NOTE2: I didn't post the vbios for my specific card, because MrBorsky posted one that worked for me equally. But if someone asks I'll gladly post mine once I get back to my rig.

    Good luck and thank you everyone!
