It would be convenient if you gave us the laptop brand and model so as not to waste time trying to identifying it through its BIOS ID.

There aren't any BIOS update from Fujitsu-Siemens.

Are you sure your new viodeomudle is working and not somehow damaged?
Maybe it needs more power than your notebook is able to deliver.

Yes, it works.

May be more power is required, may be not.

May be new module in BIOS is required to recognize new NV43M, may be not.

This is the reason for why BIOS update is required in order to eliminate this possibility.

Can you help me to OPEN this BIOS?

Thanks in advance.
