    Hi
    You will need to cut any plastic pegs or corner of speaker. Then will be fit. I had in 8935g Ati 5870 (?) in format B.

    I could use a little advice I didn't end up selling mine thankfully I got some cash together anyway enough about that
    I now have a W5170m (R9 m370x)
    installed in my 8935g and it works shows in BIOS and runs fine in Windows but only via hdmi nothing on the screen itself any help would be grand!
    on how to get the card to see the internal display and initialise it

    Hi
    It looks little bit hard, but possible. I bought 2 cards. One of them was from Hp and didn't work. But another one was from Dell laptop and works fine with no additional bios job.
    No, I can not overwrite BIOS. I did it far time ago and don't feel comfortable with this procedure.

    There's no need to overwrite anything on your end. You can save the VBIOS using GPU-Z. All i want is to try flashing that Dell bios that worked for you.. Btw how did u manage to get passed the white screen on windows boot? I'm having the same issue with no luck
