    I'm not an expert but I had the same wgen struggling with 980m and the mod file I was using wrong. You may ask @woodztock he's the expert and might kniw the best.

    I had the same problem and probably you must mod the inf and use a different section. I dont want to mislead you anyway.

    Hello
    @ woodzstack
    I tried your solution. So i downloaded the files you mentioned and copy paste the following files on the display repertory of the latest nividia driver:
    Nv_dispi
    Nvdmi
    Nvcvi

    The card wasnt recognized in the installation process

    I forgot a inf file?

    Hello,

    a latest oem nvidia driver i can used is 388.71, installation was a success.
    The installation works with my initial nvcvi.
    But from 390.65 driver installation always failed on each version.
    Thanks in advance for your help

    Regards
