Hp zbook 15 G1 GPU upgrade


Recommended Posts

Hi, i have an HP zbook 15 G1 running with intel i7 4700MQ processor.  Originally, i had no integrated GPU, just the intel 4600. The original K2100m card is very difficult to find so i bought the Nvidia M600M, This card is compatible with Zbook 15 G3 and i saw some people doing GPU upgrades on their G1 and G2 machines online.

Now i have installed the card but it doesn't work at all. I can install the drivers by tempering the inf files but still the system does not show the card anywhere else. Even the Nvidia desktop manager doesnt seem to detect any gpu while it is installed in the device manager.

My hardware id is

PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_13B2&SUBSYS_1909103C


which i have not seen in any driver by default

Can anyone help me with running this card? i am open to all suggestions

Regarding the missing subsystem read the passage "Modded INF is also mandatory if you replaced your notebook GPU..." at:

Check device manager for yellow bangs

Check GPU entry in device manager for errors, eg the notorious code 43

Upload screenshots from GPU-Z , toggle GPU's in pulldown menu.

Try this workaround: in device manager right-click NVIDIA GPU

  • select deactivate
  • wait for black screen and Windows sound
  • select reactivate
  • wait for black screen and Windows sound

Run GPU-Z again and check parameters. If it looks OK, then reboot computer and check if the workaround survived it.

Otherwise remove old driver with DDU and try drivers from other branches.

sir the laptop is currently working in hybrid mode. so deactivating the device has no effect. without hybrid mode the screen goes black even before bios . 

i was wondering if the issue could be due to bios incompatibility as the card is for zbook g3 and i have g1

if you are sure that it is driver issue , i will keep trying all other drivers that i can find

i am really eager to get this card started

I am not sure, but i remember to have had code 43 in 2019, when i tried a new branch.

Try this old test driver 384.74 - it installs without modding!

i tried the driver you gave, it installed without any error. However, right after restart the device goes to error 043  and GPUz still not shows any sign of life. could you kindly provide a vbios file for m600m?

Sorry, we do not collect VBIOS here.
