Hi, im able to get an AW17 with a 765m , and lvds screen. If i want to upgrade it with a P3000 . Im gonna need an edp display and unlocked bios , or its simply works in optimus and lvds? Other solution is, if i recieve a wrecked m6800 , ill put the k5100m to it , its not the best choice but it will give more gpu performance .

The P3000 should install just like a 10 series card. It will work best on the eDP display but it should also work fine on the LVDS display by piggybacking off the Intel graphics. You will usually find a small performance drop with this though. 

I haven't tried a P3000 myself so maybe someone else can confirm this.

thank you, ive have some strange thing going on with the 765m pics attached, its idle. Maybe the laptop is turning off the dgpu or its somehow faulty? its claims that if the card is present the fans are going 100% but its not going .

If you're having weird fan behaviour then make sure you don't have Support Assist installed and remove/disable all the Dell Vault services.
