Hi, 

 

Yes, I had. 

 

As i sad it is 

27'' LED IPS(2560x1440) E3-1225v2(3.2 GHz) 8GB (2x4GB)/256GB SSD/HD P4000/DVDRW/Cam/CardR/LAN/WiFi/BT/kbd/mse/W8Pro74 dwngr W7Pro64 (WM558EA#ACB)

 

So, i want to do 2 thinks.

1) The seller had installed Win10 - how can I downgrade it to W7Pro64 ?

2) Want to install better video. For exaple 680M, will it fit the Z1 ?

 

Thanks

Did you ever get your graphics sorted?

 

Many nVidia MXM cards "should" fit, but not many are tested. Cards intended for certain laptops may have custom tweakery that means they don't work in the Z1 as well.

 

I bought an official K4100M in the end and used it in my G1 (even thought it's supported for the G2), after pondering a 680M for a bit, but then deciding I didn't want to be out £600 if it didn't work (and every seller on the planet insists no returns for MXM cards, which I understand)

Hi!

I bought 770M - used - on orinal cooling system (seller had HP Z1 - with 2 cards for sale - so I take one)

From his words - the card's BIOS is updated. So i installed drivers from nvidea site and all.

 

And for more information - I also changed motherboard (by waranty - in last days)
