    Hello guys. I need some help, please.

    I have a GT70 2PC Domintor which i upgraded from GTX 870m to GTX 1060 1c60 (from woodzstack666). With the help of Svet i got a mod driver so i can see and use the gpu on windows.

    Now, since then:
    1. Displayport doesn't work. It doesn't recognize that port. Currently i am using hdmi with my external monitor. (I would like to see if it is possible to make it work again)
    2.before the upgrade, when i leave the external monitor plugged to the notebook, and start windows, both (notebook and external monitor) screens works and i was able to select what ia want to do (only notebook screen, extended, only external monitor screen, or duplicate). Now, since the upgrade, if i leave the external monitor plugged, the notebook only see that screen, it doesn't see thee own screen, and i cant select what or which screen i want to use, if i want to use the notebook screen, i have to turn the notebook off, unplug the hdmi cable an restart the notebook. (is there a way i can make it work likle it was before the upgrade)\

    Thanks a lot, ill appreciate any help. And sorry for my english.

    Thanks the driver installed fine after doing this.

    Next problem is iv tried running a couple of benchmarks and i am only getting 405mhz core. The 970m is being shown but seems to be the integrated gpu working. I have checked nvidia control panel and the nvidia graphics is selected in general and for the applications.

    Hey Johnbb

    Do you have Creative Sound Blaster Cinema working? I don't think it works on Win10 (at least it doesn't for me :/ ). Since SBC stopped working, the quality of sound has been utter crap. :(

    Same for me. SBC not work anymore and the result is terrible audio performance in W10. At least in Ubuntu I have a pretty good sound quality out of the box.

    I come bearing good news, my friend. :)
    Check the following link, I now have Sound Blaster Cinema working on my Windows 10 GT60-2OC. And the sound is awesome again!
    https://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=259425.0

    Here are the steps I followed to get SBC1 working for me.
    1. Installed SBC1.
    Downloaded from (https://rebyte.me/en/msi/132747/ **or** https://www.laptopsdrivers.com/note..._v1.00.05_EQ_1.00.26.zip-drivers-for-msi.html)
    2. Rebooted
    3. Installed SBC2 (got stuck at 59% - Close the process using task manager) (Disabled SBC2 and Creative Updreg in task manager startup, removed the .config file in SBC1 folder).
    Downloaded from : (http://www.station-drivers.com/index.php?option=com_remository&Itemid=353&func=select&id=57&lang=en)
    File Name : Creative Sound Blaster Cinema 2 Version 1.0.0.13
    4. Rebooted
    5. Installed Realtek Drivers.
    Downloaded from my laptop's product page (https://www.msi.com/Laptop/support/GT60-2OC.html#down-driver&Win8.1 64) -***You might want to start with this step, unless you already have Realtek audio drivers installed***
    6. Rebooted
    7. Working SBC1 :vbthumbsup::vbthumbsup::vbthumbsup:

    Spread the word. Epic sound is back...for now:bigwink:

    I already did this long time ago. But after some recent W10 update it stopped working and I needed to uninstall SBC app :'(

    Anyway, I can try again following your steps, they seem considerably different to what I did in the past. Thank you man!!

    Personally, I think the key thing is installing the version of Realtek drivers that came with the laptop. The way I see it, it helps SBC recognize the hardware as being supported. When I tried running SBC without the Realtek drivers (sound still worked with the windows default drivers), SBC would say something to the effect of "No supported audio hardware found".

    So I'd recommend you try installing the version of Realtek Drivers on your laptop's product page (or the installation disc if you got that).
