    I've got yet another unpleasant surprise from HP (Hurting People). I've watched this and saw that it has a P1000 MXM A video card in it. So since they no longer use MXM cards in Zbook 15, I decided I keep an eye for one of those P1000 cards on ebay and try the upgrade. Been watching for months and there were no P1000 MXM A cards showing up, so finally when a really good deal on the whole NVIDIA Quadro P1000 MXM Kit showed up, I jumped the chance and got it. This was my Christmas present from the wifey. Today I finally got the time to open it and see if it would work when I got my enthusiasm chilled pretty quickly. The card is indeed MXM A form factor, but HP for some reason have added SMD capacitors to the bottom of the card, that would not allow for this card to fit in a laptop machine. I can only guess, that the reason for these capacitors is exactly not to be used outside anything but USDT machine such as the HP Z2 mini. So yeah, HP sucks.

    Most likely you can re-locate those caps to the top, or replace then with some tantalums(so they are low profile).

    @senso Relocating them to the top doesn't make more sense, as they would be in the way of the laptop heatsink. Replacing them with tantulums should be viable solution, but that is not the point. The point is HP are purposely making things hard for enthusiast like ourselves to make any useful upgrades of our old beloved machines. Also not sure if the P1000 would work in the Zbook 15 G2, as I tried it in a HP 800 G1 USDT and although it was recognized and drivers installed successfully, it sits with "Error code 43".

    Sorry i have made the mistake in this chat today. My last post was in german. I start again with my problem.

    Hello,

    I hope someone can help me with my problem, because I am running out of ideas how to solve it.

    I have a HP Zbook 17 G1 with Nvidia K4100m. I want to upgrade to M4000m.
    They do fit together.

    The hardware ID from the M4000M is DEV_13F9&SUBSYS_190A103C and from the Vbios is 84.04.8D.00.05.

    My problem is the bios and the driver. The m4000m is sometimes visible in the bios.
    I have checked the vbios from techpower 84.04.6D.00.07 and 84.04.3D.00.06. Not 100% compatible.
    The driver from Nvidia, HP and Dell has no positive results when tried with both versions of vbios by techpower. I have also tried several bios boot modes, native/hybrid.
    No positive results.

    I have no idea what to do. Does anyone have an idea for me?

    Thank you very much an best regards.

    I replay the inf mod in two attempt with vbios 84.04.6D.00.07. The first attempt was the hardware id to deceive with the id in row 142 and the next attempt to deceive the id in the row 143.
    No attempt worked.
    The install of the nvidia-driver 441.66 closes with error by step installing.
    No errorcode 43. Only the massage.
