After hours and hours of trying different methods, and messing with and modding the inf file of the installer, I finally got the Nvidia drivers to work to make use of my GTX M. Make sure your GTX M is a Dell part or the graphics bios would need to be modified via a flashing process as well, and that is a process not for the faint of heart. I did a custom install of only the Nvidia display driver.
Unfortunately I have yet to get Optimus to work correctly, but I will keep trying and add that to my findings here if and when i am successful, and possibly make a more clear post to help others looking to do the same.
Not the best lineup, but enough to put this GPU to the test. Still trying to get Optimus to work.

Dell Support Resources.I bought a with the w power supply and an AMD video card.
I have a better GTX card I want to put in, but there is no power connector for it. I have tried hooking up the PCIe power to the power module at the top, but it doesn't power on. I got it to work. Looks like I used the power ports labeled VGA power on the power board and the system boots itself twice before it comes up.
Not sure if it is supposed to do that, but has been solid since it came online. Hope that helps somebody! Different slots are rated for different amounts of power. SATA power connectors are really poorly designed. Adapting to or from SATA can be a fire risk, especially something like a that's drawing near the limit of what a 6 pin can deliver. If Dell workstations are anything like HP Z workstations, the graphics card they want is not even an option. To continue this discussion, please ask a new question.

Return the system and order another with your desired Graphics card? Why get a new workstation then change the graphics card? Brand Representative for AMD.I tried everything to get it to work but it kept giving an error 43 in the Device Manager.
I tried everything to no avail. Everything was great but when I would install the driver, I would get a black screen and wouldn't be able to do anything or it would be black and locked up. I want to buy from BestBuy because I get a discount so that would be best if possible.
I thought about trying the lower end cards from there but I would like to have at least 4GB if possible due to video editing software Resolve. I try to use my 1gb card with p footage but it crashes every time. But for GTXit should be fine. Before returning your GTXyou may try it on another PC if possible and see if same problem exist. And if so, probably problem from GPU. Thank you for the reply. I see that there were a lot of legacy PCs that didn't work with that card but they are saying the and work fine so I may check into that.
I am going to try to buy another one I think to see if it works. The card looked to be brand new and didn't say anything about being refurbished but who knows if it was or not.
I was going to buy a used one but read that you never know how they were used so I decided against. I am going to try to go get another one today and will let you know how it works. I may even try a RX if they have any. Would it be the slot and the HD still work fine? I don't seem to have any issues with it, aside from it being old.
Other than that I am happy with how the still runs to this day, I will definitely upgrade when I am able to but seeing how the has done throughout the years makes it hard to want to get something different. Take a look at Wiki :. It could hardly handle modern applications or games even if you upgrade it to it's maximum likelihood.

Successful MXM GPU Upgraded Laptops
I've used my KM for a good five years but it is starting to seem a bit dated. As GPUs are getting faster much faster than other components, the rest of my M seems totally acceptable to use for another few years. I've been watching eBay for a replacement GPU. This means, the best possible card that you could hope for in the M without IPS display is the Quadro MM, with the GeForce M being just as good if you do not need it for Quadro-specific professional applications.
Just about best-case scenario, it was a Dell card with the X-bracket included, which makes for the easiest installation. I wanted to detail my experience for anyone else who may be thinking about upgrading the GPU. I've included benchmark results so that you can see how big of a difference it made in performance, or so that you can run your own benchmarks to compare to mine if you are thinking about upgrading from something other than the KM.
Pictures KM left vs. MM right They're a bit smaller in person than I thought that they would be, from pictures that I have seen The M manual from support. Before replacing the heatsinks, I cleaned the old thermal compound off of the CPU, CPU heatsink, and GPU heatsink using isopropyl alcohol and a micro-fiber cloth, so that I could put on a fresh application. I did a fair amount of reading and the general consensus seems to be that you should let the paste spread as you apply pressure from the heatsink.
Spreading it manually with your finger or a card of some sort is not ideal, as it increases the chance that air bubbles will form as you put pressure on from the heatsink But also, there are transistors pretty much all over the GPU die, so you want to make sure that you cover the whole thing with paste if you can without too much spilling out.
The MM has an extra "R22" chip thing along the top, and also the positions of these "R22s" is slightly different than on the KM. I ordered an extra 1. Installation took about 90 minutes all told, which included complete disassembly and reassembly with the re-pasting in between.
I had previously been overclocking the KM, but I reverted to stock clocks to run these tests. Issues I've only used the machine for a few hours with the new GPU installed, but I have run across two key issues.
Optimus does not work I was previously running with Optimus turned on. I know that the MM was alive and working, as I could still run CUDA tasks on it, it just would not render anything directly to the screen. They must have changed something about how Optimus works.This system will have delayed shipping. Call or chat to receive your product sooner. Shipping Free.

Hello everyone, I am using my M for nearly 2 years now since it was released.[MXM Graphics Upgrade] Dell Precision M4800 GeForce GTX 965M
However, back then, I didn't know the graphics card was meant for 3D and video editing. I only got it because of its high processing power and high RAM. Anyway, is it possible to upgrade the GPU? I've read in different forums and posts somewhere stating that it is impossible due to gpu size issues, TOP, and so on. Any one can share their insights here? Like does that mean I cannot really upgrade? And has anyone here done it? I would really appreciate it. SengXunMay 30, Abdullah faisal likes this.
