    Hi everyone!
    I've had a weird problem for about a week, and I can't figure out the cause nor a solution. Sometimes, it happens that after a shutdown, when I boot again I can't hear any sound from the notebook, even if I bring the volume to 100; even if I plug some headphones I can't hear any sound. Then, if I reboot the sounds work again.
    Seeing that rebooting solved the problem, I disabled the "Fast Startup" in "Power Options --> Choose what the power buttons do", thinking that maybe something in the hybrid shutdown wasn't working properly, but I've just had the problem again even with a full shutdown.
    What would you do to fix this?

    hey, installed the 14.6 b and ithink it really increases fps, but sadly for dota 2 and hearthstone etc. its just missing textures in the game (i.e. hero models). anyone noticed that, or is it just me? greetz

    Okay, sorry for that ;). I also reverted back to 14.4 but cant wait to get a running 14.6, it really seems to increase performance

    Thanks - have an open ticket with them but no straight answer yet. Are you running Windows 8.1 update?

    Hey, I've had the Samsung 7 Chronos 17 inch version ( 770Z7E i think, same as 770Z5E but larger screen, don't know if that matters much) for about a year now, and I've been noticing heating problems when playing any game, even games that aren't really gpu intensive (Dota 2 mostly).
    The first 20 seconds are allright, then the fps drops hugely and my GPU temp skyrockets to 90-98 degrees Celsius. I haven't had this issue before and it's been occurring the last month.
    Anyone else having trouble with this? And any ideas on how to fix this? I haven't found any people in this thread with temperature problems, neither have I found any on Google.
    I have the stock ati 13.10 drivers installed, about to try the 14.4 whql driver.

    The little flap on the Ethernet port has broken off. Bad move on my part using the machine on my lap with the Ethernet connected. Put a little too much pressure on the flap.

    Even if I took the back off, not sure if I could find a new flap and if I could slip it in. Any suggestions on fixing it? I'd rather not start carrying around a usb 3.0 Ethernet adapter.
