Hi have read many tutorials on this swap. So I bought it and attempted the swap. Tried the .inf modded file and nvidia driver 347.52 attempts to install and then fails...am I missing something?

I once had problems installing a GTX570M into an old M15x. Eventually I worked it out. Did you get the file from laptopvideo2go? That's where I eventually got it sorted.
There is another option though which can be easier. I once bought some GTX780M's on ebay for my M18x R2. The store was upgradeyourlaptop. They have all the modded drivers for different cards for different Alienwares. Hopefully this link will lead you in the right direction. Click on the drivers link and you will find one for your M15x and the 660M. Good Luck!

Thanks for that, but I think my 660m was sold to me doa and I determined this due to my screen booting up completely black and then shutting off. I would love for this card to work but after that incident im a lil scared...
