Although I no longer have the computer, I had a Quadro K2100M working perfectly fine with nvidia web drivers/10.9.3 or with 10.9.1 drivers (also 10.8.5 drivers worked). That card is also kepler. The HDMI port and Displayport worked, and with the 10.9.1 drivers, the VGA port also worked. The issue I had was only waking from sleep while on battery (I'm getting a different but similar computer today to see if the different hardware might help with that).Nope...it does not work in windows if I disable nVidia!
The only options I got is to make nVidia detect my display disabling Intel card or to make VGA working for HD4000 on Mav.
But it seems that nobody knows the reason why the driver does not detect any display attached. :/
I can't use any external monitor!! :/ and my laptop is 360 degrees working for the rest!!:/
There was a very big discussion in another forum about mobile keplers which you might want to read. Something about the vbios being built into the DSDT making it problematic. If you have a notebook model which uses an MXM card, the vbios is read from the card and it works. Otherwise, apparently, it may or may not work well.
I might want to mention that on the hardware I used (Dell Precision M4800, but I don't recommend this, as its ALPS trackpad/pointing stick is really bad, and it does have the wake from sleep on battery/nvidia issue), I was able to use the intel driver on the laptop's screen, and the nvidia driver also loaded, and worked for external screens. I have an older ASUS laptop (not sure of the model) but with that one, the intel graphics handles all of the external monitors, despite there being an nvidia card (which makes it really nice for bumblebee in linux).
