    Hi

    Please forgive me, I realize there are post and guides for this. However after hours of countless different threads I am no closer .
    I cannot update 980 to lastest driver .

    What I did :

    Updated latest bios ( A15 )Removed Radoen 7970M. Installed 980M card. D. Windows installed Nvidia card , restart. Download drivers from eurocom, disabled signature enformcent - restart. Try to install latest driver failed. Mod inf file . Still fail to install. What am I doing wrong. Any help is greatly appreciated. See attachement dont know if there is anything relevant.

    Doesn't matter where you download it from even official would work after modding the inf file you need to disable driver signature to install modded driver

    OK, modded . Tried to install via Setup, came along way but in the end failed for some reason. Tried to manually update , think it is the latest driver?
    Is there anything else I need to do?

    Thanks so much for your help.

    The 980M can run the latest Nvidia driver so you should have one that is later than Feb20. Right click on your desktop and select the Nvidia Control Panel. What driver version does it say you have?
