    Hello, last year I had a working Zotac 1070 but the fan had to control with HWInfo. So I decided to flash another VBios from MSI to get the fan working without HWInfo. Nothing changed. So a NBR member sent me various VBios here to hopefully get my card working. After flashing a GT72VR Bios the card wasn‘t recognized in my AW18 anymore and in an MSI GT60 with Optimus the screen stays black. Now a friend of mine flashed the original Zotac VBios with a programmer. But also the card is not shown in the AW18 Bios and the GT60 screen stays black.
    Does anyone knows what could be the fault?

    Zotac 1070 mxm are not striaght compatible with laptops which read temp via SM BUS, hardware mod is needed.

    Wrong vBIOS to kill the card, could be so, check all voltages on the card first.

    I mean if the GPU is reading the vBIOS chip.

    With a LED, some low voltage would do it.

    So I have to check it directly on the Bioschip with a Multimeter?

    With LED.
    SCD to LED - pin and +1.8v to LED + pin.
    It should light up when vBIOS activity is done.
