    Like You see not everything about MXM upgrades is white and black. I haven't seen anything regarding K2100M upgrade on 8935g or 8940g so You are probably first one on this subject. If one vbios isn't working try flash other one eg from MSI. Off course You have to bare in mind that there is a chance that card might not boot after flash and You will have to flash it back with the programmer to make it work again.

    I tried,but no success.
    But there is something strange for me in my k2100m from Dell. Vendor.
    This is vendor:
    PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_11FC&SUBSYS_019E1025
    1025 at the end means Acer! My laptop is Acer, but Acer never used this graphic card in their computers.
    Means it, somebody - my seller from Ebay, who said it is from Dell, overwritten vBios with Acer Vendor?
    4 Producers used this card: Dell,Lenovo, Msi, Hp.Hp I have as well,but Bios not recognizing HP vBios.
    Dell's vendor,taken from their driver .inf file is:
    PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_11FC&SUBSYS_05CC1028 or
    PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_11FC&SUBSYS_15CC1028 (memorys are Hynix and Samsung)
    Lenovo:
    PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_11FC&SUBSYS_221117AA
    PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_11FC&SUBSYS_221E17AA
    Msi:
    PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_11FC&SUBSYS_10FB1462

    Have a nice day. You will be able to backup your notebook BIOS using the Universal BIOS Backup ToolKit. It is necessary to set up the work of the laptop. From the official site does not help, because there, just a little, an update, not a whole bios.

    Looks like video card is very sensitive with Windows 10. It couldn't been an upgrade from 7, just clean instal. With 8940g I will finish probably next week. I suspect my mainboard is broken and thats a problem. Anyway -8935g, needs to find a way to work together on one screen with two cards.Now I see clean from icons screen with Intel graphic and every program is running on not visible screen with K2100m.
