Need vbios for gt72 6qd dominator with GTX 980m

Seeking Help with MSI GT72 6QD Graphics Card Upgrade Issue!


Hello fellow tech enthusiasts,

I could really use some assistance and insights on a problem I'm facing with my MSI GT72 6QD gaming laptop. Recently, my GTX 970M graphics card became faulty, prompting me to purchase a replacement GTX 980M. However, after installation, I've encountered a perplexing issue.

The problem is as follows:

1. The laptop screen remains blank; there is no display whatsoever.
2. The laptop does seem to be functioning correctly as the external display (LED) works without any issues.

After encountering these problems I decided to install vbios without having any experience and ended up flashing wrong bios, however I got the display but gpuz show GTX 980 without Physx and few other. Sequentially, I tried so many bios but none of them worked, came up with mismatch GPU, mismatch device ID, wrong firmware etc. 

Have any of you experienced a similar situation when upgrading a GPU on an MSI GT72 6QD laptop?


Your valuable expertise would be greatly appreciated, and any guidance you can provide will be a huge help to me. Thank you in advance for your time and assistance!

It could be you simply need to change the Bios setting from Legacy to UEFI or enable CSM support.

Issue sound just like i had when i first tried a GTX1060m in my now dead GT72-6QD.


Photo of the MXM card will help though.
