    Thank you so much Razer.SpeedCr0ss! I opened my case, explained a couple things and i got my 1.04 BIOS and was able to updaye to Windows 2004 AND updated my NVIDIA Drivers to the newest ones without a single problem!

    I really appreciate the top notch customer service you have provided so far, just the sheer amount of updates and follow ups, is just fantastic!

    Happy customer,
    Durzo

    I got a link to a BIOS file from support, but it only claims it where for Blade Pro only, ignoring that I did start it from a Blade Pro. So still no solution for me available.

    Hi, I would like to know if UNDERVOLTING and XMP are an option under BIOS 1.4.
    BIOS 1.0 = YES-Undervolting / NO- XMP
    BIOS 1.3 = NO - Undervolting / YES - XMP
    BIOS 1.4 = ?
    Thanks!

    For me with BIOS 1.04 XMP works and Undervolting is not possible

    Hey Guys,

    Thanks for this thread - I just opened a case with support as well.

    Had been waiting for a fix for quite a while now and just came across this post.

    Just installed BIOS 1.04. GeForce Experience still says that I have the latest drivers installed which happen to be the 442.53 driver from 4/15. On a hunch I downloaded the latest driver, 452.06, directly from NVIDIA. The driver installed with no issue and I'm now up to date.

    Yes that is still odd. With the new bios you can installe the latest drivers from NVidia manually but you cannot update via geforce experience. It always says you have the latest drivers installed.
    Does someone have an idea why that is?

    undervolting still not possible

    Honestly, at this point I'm just happy that I'm able to update the driver. GeForce Experience isn't needed. If it says I have the latest when the next driver is released I'm just going to uninstall it and update drivers manually.

    Thanks! I won't update to 1.4 then. The performance jump with Undervolting is significant.
    I am currently on Windows 1909 and see no benefit on updrading to 2004, although I am curious because now it is listed as an option while as before I was blocked from the update, I wonder what would happen if I do update to 2004, worst case I can rever back to an older version I guess. But wonder what would happen if I doit while on BIOS 1.0

    Hey cjjacobs! Thanks for sharing. Feel free to send us a PM or visit our self-help options should you need additional assistance.

    That's right. I think that would be the best option for you since there is no method to revert to a previous BIOS firmware aside from sending in the unit for service.

    Just installed win 10 2004. In combination with bios 1.04 you can use the laptop with the latest nvidia drivers in dedicated gpu mode. It is working great so far. Thank you razer for all the support. I's been great so far!

    Still a little bit disapointed that undervoltting is still not possible. But i think it is not razers fault. hope there is general security fix and the vendors bring this feature back to their bios.

    @Razer.SpeedCr0ss
    So 1.04 has been working great for fixing the dedicated GPU for 452.06 nvidia drivers. That is until Nvidia released 456.38 and I was back to black screen. They then released 456.55 but again the same issue. So for now I have to stay with 452.06 in order to use dedicated gpu.

    Hi, I hope you are aware that the last two NVIDIA Game Ready driver updates result in Black Screens, regardless of the BIOS 1.4 update. This is really unfair, I personally had hoped that updating to BIOS 1.4 (giving up undervolting along the way) would solve the issue but no luck.

    Razer should release a new BIOS update to fix this and BRING BACK UNDERVOLTING!
    My laptop's CPU is running MUCH HOTTER with BIOS 1.4 in comparison to 1.0 which results in significant performance loss when comparing the two BIOS.

    Please please, would you ask the engineers to issue a BIOS update that fixes Game Ready driver issues and also brings back undervolting!

    Thanks!

    I second this, the last 2 nvidia updates broke my machine, because apparently we are going to have nothing but problems with this $4000 laptops. First we couldn't update our drivers for months, which is ludicrous, now the screen will not come back from sleep. Once the screen dims, you're done. How are we having so many problems with these things? Nvidia driver 456.38
