Hello!

I have a quite peculiar laptop and have been searching around the internet to check compatibility but i stopped at a stalemate.

This model in specific runs an i7-2760QM (HM65 Cougar Point), and has no multiplexer, just a GT540M that integrates the built-in display and VGA or HDMI external displays. It has UEFI Support as well.

Now on my search journey, i have found at the same time:
One cites some compatibility development on the GT540M and another lists that the Fermi (GF108) is not supported at all.

Is it compatible at all? Cause unless i'm an idiot, the rest of the laptop should be compatible.

Thanks in advance!

that processor also has HD Graphics 3000, have you checked windows device manager - display to see if both are listed?

Yes, nothing intel, only Nvidia.

EDIT: It could be that its disabled in BIOS or something, it's not an unlocked BIOS.

Does High Sierra have support for it? It would be through the WebDrivers yes?

also thanks for the quick response!
