Saw several threads on upgrading my R1 and installed a new GTX 680M. Following the install, the card appeared as generic VGA. I flashed the BIOS to the latest version, uninstalled/reinstalled the driver..no joy. Tried to install the latest graphics drivers from Dell support and the Nvidia site but they both stopped saying "graphics card not compatible...exiting". Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
