I just spent several hours attempting to install the 84.80 with the modded .inf onto a dell 1705 with the 7800 Go. I was continually getting the BSOD with the nv4_mini.sys error. I rolled back to the 84.69 so I am not to worried. I just wanted to let people know there may be a problem.

Of course I am new here. So there is a very good chance I am the problem! :)
