    No problem, glad that it worked for you :)

    Due to the close placement of everything important (CPU, fan and etc.) I don't think that it's possible, not without sacrifices and VERY custom work. Same goes for the ASUS GTX 260m (from G50 I think).

    i've been checking this thread for a while.. boy, i waited so long till managed to make an account! congratulations on the many hacking possibilities :D
    now that i got a new laptop, i still love my acer 7730g more than this glossy stuff. so rigid and well made.... my problem is that i broke 2*m25p10-a chips while trying to blindflash... after flashing, i restart the laptop and after a fraction it turns off and wont turn on till i desolder the chip and press power button for 30 seconds and plug the DC cable. i think this is happening because the ROM was the one i found in this thread named HD4650DDR3, while my card is the KSKAE LS-5001P model with 1gb hynix DDR2 model. does anyone have the bios for this model? the card was taken down from toshiba l500D and didn't rip the bios while i had that laptop, and no one around has a toshiba laptop with mxm slot to do this. thanks in advance and keep up the good work!

    edit: forgot to mention that i tried to add a bios i found in the system bios with phoenix tool and didnt have to replace some OPROM0x, i just renamed my bios to OPROM and added to option rom and for me, it didnt work

    edit2: now i tried to flash the card with one of these http://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/...HD+4650+Mobility&interface=&memType=&memSize= using the command atiflash -f -p 0 4650ddr2.rom (and once with atiflash -f -pa 4650ddr2.rom) and i after restart, it won't turn off in a split second but i still dont get image.... im out of ideas :(

    what application did you use as remote desktop? as teamviewer will display black screen and just as i move the cursor, the image will show somehow around the cursor, but still can't see anything

    edit: well i configured the windows remote desktop but when i try to enter atiwinflash, it says "cannot find ati discrete video card".....seems like remote desktop connection is disabling the gpu

    Hello. I revive post.

    I buyed Toshiba Mxm II Gt330M 1Gb for my Acer 5920G laptop.

    I Extracted Gt330M VBios. I have created two bios files, (extracted Gt330M Vbios, from two differents Satellite Toshiba Laptops Sbios):

    Version A:
    https://mega.nz/#!IMQ2TAYK!YT7pvhKPFbl0fv0VJs0qMWsmvvssapSr299_3N7ul5o

    Version B:
    https://mega.nz/#!9JgFEQ6C!bHx3WNhGa1ZvGG-lco5t6mBGIed_MY0AdTCotyTcinw

    I created too, two differents NetRoller last version Sbios for Acer 5920G with Gt330M Vbios rom integrate on it.

    My Card is not arrived to me at this moment. I prefer wait for test my builded Sbios on my computer. When Gt330M arrive me and I complete test work on my Acer 5920G, then I will add links to this post.

    Bonus:

    Vbios rom toshiba for Gt230M

    https://mega.nz/#!9JhUhShT!_xTlMeRhdqZN6cEZTl0EE65py5sfM7GW_HtrRfF9NK8

    Vbios rom toshiba for Gt310M

    https://mega.nz/#!QVAHXaRB!Alf381jfS7JnjRoyxt-CHcNMdWPxXc5YY_kphkzH07k

    Last Toshiba Geforce Drivers for Gt330M (In Toshiba forums say, is better use this drivers and no generic Nvidia drivers. This toshiba drivers are modify drivers for better temperatures and more greater life with toshiba cards).

    Sorry:

    (I remove this Link because driver need modify info for install Gt330M. I will add last toshiba Gt330M driver with modify info file on next post)

    Ok. I Confirm, Nvidia Gt330M 1gb Ddr 3 from Toshiba Romless working fine with only modify SBios in Acer 5920G Laptop.

    Great temps for Gpu, 36-42º in iddle and 60-70º in load.

    Need modified last Toshiba Gt330M Info drive for install vga in Windows 7 and in Windows 10.

    Now, I use thosiba driver 9.18.13.2782 version, (Nvidia 327.82 modify version from toshiba). I readed on toshiba forums, its better use toshiba version drivers, in this drivers toshiba add "teawks" for better temps, energy control in toshiba vga cards.

    I modified too, Oficial last Nvidia Driver 341.95, it works, i tested it, but for more security, I decide use modify Toshiba last driver for Gt330M.

    1) Modify Netroller Sbios for Acer 5920g with Gt330M Toshiba Vbios "B" and update last intel Vbios for integrated Intel X3100 vga, and modify any options on setup main bios.

    *Only wth Add Gt330M and Old Netroller X3100 Vbios and other Surprises:

    https://mega.nz/#!1U4kSYyb!QWs-Uwbpgpr4xgdv5ZEyd0f3eQZYiN8MYrk2HjtyyHk

    *With Add Gt330M + X3100 Vbios Update 1668 and other Surprises:

    https://mega.nz/#!pEhwXbBR!LyrKnm82KOYr4zaCNbDUTuDd-l013i_Emmu42-3GJTo

    2) Modify (info modify), last Toshiba 64 Bits driver for Gt330M.

    https://mega.nz/#!EMQhjCaS!YJZJuqLYDjDWyODbpt_YMSLVNErilRlmrdihKwy_Rdo

    3) Modify (info modify), last Nvidia Oficial 64 Bits driver.
    (I will Upload as soon possible)

    *I used for better cooler card:
    * Arctic Cooling Mx4 Thermal Paste.
    * 0,8 mm size thermal copper pad on Gt330M Core.
    * 4 (for 4 memory card chips), blue adhesive good quality thermal pads with 0,3 mm size.

    Is there a way to add a video bios to the insydeh20 bios on the 6935g? I would love to get a card with 1gb ddr3, but everything out there is romless now xD

    If anyone knows how to do it on this specific bios, a guide would be nice. I'm not that great at this kind of thing yet :)

    I have been eying a 240m... anything better out there? I'll take suggestions even if they are rare cards.
