980 to 1060 upgrade on Clevo P7xxDM-G laptop windows doesn't identify the GPU and Nvidia won't install drivers for it

As the title suggests I've just swapped out a 980 mxm card for a 1060 one on a clevo P7xxDM-G (what it identifies as in BIOS) motherboard and windows doesn't correctly identify the card calling it windows basic display adapter and the Screen is covered in flashing green pixels. Nvidia won't install drivers on the laptop as it doesn't identify that the laptop has a Nvidia card in it. pulling up the card info using a Vbios flashing tool does however correctly identify it as a gtx 1060.

I have seen on an other forum that the issue has been resolved by installing a driver with a modified .inf file which required the HW ID of the card. if anyone can supply me with one of these modified .inf files and walk me through how to use it I would be greatly appreciative.

 

HW ID of the Card:

PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1C20&SUBSYS_75021558&REV_A1
PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1C20&SUBSYS_75021558
PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1C20&CC_030000
PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1C20&CC_0300

This is an even better tool for making custom drivers, but the green pixels is kind of concerning - Might be something else wrong there, in addition to the non-standard 1060.

that has let me install the drivers it now correctly informs me that it is a gtx 1060 unfortunately device manager reports a code 43 and the green pixels are still there it might be a busted card

Oh ya flashing green pixels are definitely sign of a toasted card.  Try undervolting it and see if it will go away.  I had a desktop 980ti that was toasted, but as long as I had it undervolted it would work fine, but that only extended it's life for a year or two.  Or you can always "bake" it to see if it will re-solder the connections, but that is also a big risk.

Here is one guide:

Maybe that will help, there should be some youtube guides too, it is a pretty common thing to do

That Guide looks soooo complicated to me

this is what I've ended up with now

Nice at least you got the driver installed. I think others will probably have some other ideas, but try to undervolt and see if it helps the pixels disappears.

 

Here is one guide, but again there are more.

Hello,

1. HW-ID is 1C20. Change accordingly in the desktop driver.
2. uninstall all recent drivers with DDU.
3. boot with driver signature disabled and install desktop driver.
4. reboot done!
