Modded INF attached, only for the DCH driver
Disable driver signature before installation
Copy INF into "Display.Driver" folder and install driver via have disk method (setup.exe will fail)
Check successful installation in GPU-Z->advanced tab->WDDM->UMD driver name
If you encounter Code 43, try nvidiaInspector.exe -RestartDisplayDriver (in worst case after every Windows start)
Click here to change "Hardware Accelerated GPU Scheduling" and "Variable Rate Refresh"
Mobile Kepler users please review NVIDIA's official support plan.
Technically it means, mobile support has only been removed from installer files (INF), therefore a modded INF is mandatory to use this driver with mobile Kepler GPUs
Binary compatibility within one GPU generation can be guaranteed under certain conditions because they share the basic instruction set
Modded INF is also mandatory if you replaced your notebook GPU with an aftermarket model.
"Both PNP ID and ACPI ID consist of two parts: a Vendor ID, followed by a product identifier. Each manufacturer of these devices must be assigned an industry-unique Vendor ID... The Device Manufacturer is responsible for assigning this identifier to each individual product MODEL. Once an identifier is assigned to a product model, it must not be assigned to any other product model manufactured by the same company (that is, that uses the same Vendor ID)."

Laptop arrived yesterday, had a play after work
Here are my very first thoughts
NVME drive fast but very small (256GB), so already replaced with a 1TB Samsung 970 EVO
Bright screen don't need to have to full brightness as like Inspiron
Nice chassis, semi small Bezel, Laptop with narrow Bezel is quite narrow does stilll have numeric keypad
6 Core 12thread CPU, supposed to ramp to 4.5Ghz but sits on 4.15Ghz most of the time, but AMD do it better right now, but no RTX 2060 with AMD
RTX 2060 means games can now be run with higher settings, Witcher 3 runs great on "ultra'
Not so good
At full brightness LCD panel leaks light like a sieve
Keyboard needs hard presses to register, so no typing this fast
Fan are on, while Win10 updates, fans aren't overly noisy but there, when playing Witcher 3, fans ramp up, not overly annoying but noise cancelling headphones a must
Wrist rest for right had gets very warm when gaming, HDD (Spindle) is under here, wasn't used for game but still got hot, have since removed
To get to the Laptop internals means removing a heap of screws and entire bottom chassis, Inspiron had a removable panel with 1x screw
Laptop Win10 came with Intel NVME drivers I can't for the life of me get Samsung or MS driver to install so Samsung Magician will work
Keyboard is just plain yuck, I'm thumping keys or they'll get missed
Would I buy again, probably not
