Recently there are rumors that Nahimic is working after updating BIOS, but you should be aware that Nahimic is not necessarily available on every MSI notebooks.
Identify whether your notebook is compatible with Nahimic or not by referring to the method below.

I. Does my notebook support Nahimic?

    A. Only MSI notebook with NVIDIA 900M Graphics supports Nahimic, because MSI notebook begins supporting Nahimc from NVIDIA 900M Graphics.
(GT80 / GT72 / GE72 / GE62 / GS70 / GS60 / GS30 / GP72 / GP62 / PE70 / PE60 / PX60 with NVIDIA 900M Graphics)

?Exception: Belowed notebooks only support Sound Blaster Cinema (SBC).
GT60 2QD Dominator / GT60 2QD Dominator 3K Edition / GT60 2QE Dominator Pro 4K Edition / GT60 2QD Dominator 4K Edition / GT70 2QD Dominator / GT70 Dominator Pro Dragon Edition / GT70 Dominator Dragon Edition.
?Make sure to update the latest version of Nahimic and the audio driver provided on MSI global website.
?Nahimic supports Windows 10 starting from version 1.2.x, please do update to version 1.2.x or later version in order to get the full support in Windows 10.
(You can download Nahimic v1.2.7 and audio driver v6.0.1.7592 from here.)

    B. If your notebook comes with NVIDIA 900M Grahpics but the pre-installed sound effect software is Sound Blaster Cinema (SBC), you should update your BIOS or audio driver to use Nahimic.
        Please refer to the section II below.
(GT80 2QC/2QD/2QE, GT72 2QD/2QE, GS70 2QD/2QE, GS60 2QD/2QE, GS30 2M, GE70 2QD/2QE, GE60 2QD/2QE)


II. MSI notebook with NVIDIA 900M Graphics supports Nahimic even if the pre-installed sound effect software is Sound Blaster Cinema (SBC).




?Downgrading from Nahimic to SBC isn't supported by MSI.


    A. Update the latest version of BIOS to use Nahimic:
         1. Uninstall audio driver and SBC from your notebook.
         2. Update BIOS to the latest version from your notebook download page.
         3. Install the latest version of audio driver and Nahimic from your notebook download page.

    B. Update the latest version of audio driver to use Nahimic:
         1. Uninstall audio driver and SBC from your notebook.
         2. Install the latest version of audio driver and Nahimic from your notebook download page.


III. If your notebook isn't listed above, please use Sound Blaster Cinema / Sound Blaster Cinema 2

    A. You should continue to use SBC / SBC 2 since your notebook doesn?t support Nahimic.
        (Please download SBC / SBC 2 from here. SBC v1.00.05, SBC 2 v1.00.11)

    B. If you have problem with SBC / SBC 2, please refer to the following FAQ:
        What should I do if Sound Blaster Cinema (SBC) stops working after upgrading to Windows 10?
        How can I find Sound Blaster EQ's version and to know it is already installed?

Very surprised/displeased to see you guys drop support for a lot of models, including mine.. (GE62 2QE Apache)

The laptop originally came with Nahimic installed on it, which is the weird thing, please be sure to not mention it on the driver page of the product then either
when it only causes problems and there is absolutely 0 support for it any more.

Very disappointed.

Thanks for clarifying. That means my GE60 2PL bought just 10 months ago is not supported by this new software, not a really cool news.

Can you also tell me when will we receive W10 drivers for this model? It's 2 months now waiting, do you think on providing drivers? This computer is really recent, so I hope you will, but if you don't plan giving us fresh drivers for W10, let me know so I no longer wait to upgrade to W10 (I will try to run it with W8 drivers).

Thanks.

Yeah, it definitely does not make sense seeing as how the GE62 is still a brand new notebook with a 900M series graphics card. I think MSi made a mistake here.

I've been having personal contact with Nahimic over Facebook chat (support') they've told me they will update me on this as it doesn't seem right to them either...

I don't know where you get the information that GE62 2QE doesn't support Nahimic. 

There's no doubt that GE62 2QE supports Nahimic according to the first item which said "Only MSI notebook with NVIDIA 900M Graphics supports Nahimic"

You can also see the Nahimic download link at the download page of product.

I have a GT70 2QD Dominator and Nahimic installer tells me that my system is not supported. Yes, I installed the audio drivers beforehand.

Any suggestion?

/edit : I read GE as GT, too tired. Still, I have a 970M, shouldn't that apply?

Hi Muskatnuss,

GT70 2QD should be supported with Nahimic if you install the latest version of audio driver on MSI product page.
Could you use the MSI System Information Export tool to output system information? Let's check that.

I was hoping that updating Nahimic would fix the faulting.. but it seems it's still occurring. Do you know where I can contact the Nahimic tech support or something? 

> Basically NahimicMSIOSD.dll + BF3 (Or even VU) = Crashing like mad.

MSI will never resolve the issues with nahimic on some models because they did not do proper testing prior to this huge change in software / architecture.  

It should be expected as MSI makes quality hardware but has the worst product support in the channel.

Hi, I have a MSI GE62 6QF and yesterday I've updated BIOS to the latest wersion and reinstalled audio driver and nahimic 2.2.10 software from download page and now I have a icon on taskbar but when I want to launch it I get Nahimic stopped working. Prior to installing Audio driver and Nahimic I've unstalled everything first. Any Ideas why ?

Ok, Found a partial solution. Nahimic 2 has problems with win10 insider preview, so for now disabling recording device (mic) enables Nahimic software to work. It's better to look at their facebook page for news and solutions.
