I'm having a bit of a troblw with my HP 8710w laptop. Originaly it had a Quadro FX1600m card and i bought from ebay a Quadro Fx3600m mxm card. I have installed it and when i turn on the laptop it has signal but the screen flickers, it has a green vertical line and strange colours. When i install the driver it gives BSOD.

Can anyone help me? What should i do?

Wrong Bios maybe? Dump the old one with nvflash: nvflash --save filename.rom

Then try flashing a different one.

I tried and i flashed with another and still the same. But when i connect the card to a TV OUT through HDMI the image is clear.

When i boot up windows 7 in safe mode i stil have the crappy image but it doesn't crash or BSOD.

When the drivers are loading the card fails with BSOD.

Any thoughts because i don' t know what to do anymore.

Best regards!
