    Hi, after installing 14.4 drivers i have a problem with core clock switching from 775 to 725. Also GPU usage is strange. gpu.jpg

    If overclock is applied then switching is from 850 to 600 MHz.Enduro fix is applied.

    Thank you for your help.

    The bottom plastic cover plate for my N770Z5E has cracked...... Anyone knows where I can purchase a replacement online?

    Which part of the world are you in? Our usual source of part numbers, Samsungparts.com doesn't list the NP770Z5E but has the similar NP780Z5E for which the base is part number is BA75-04323A. A quick search reveals that this part number is also applicable for the 770 as confirmed here.

    I'm in Australia

    Thanks for the links.....

    But over $70 for a piece of thin plastic is ridiculous ....

    I will leave my laptop cracked as it is....

    I'd use some epoxy glue (preferably the stronger, not rapid, version) on the inside. First roughen up the plastic each side of the crack so it can bond extra well and you will end up with a repair that is stronger than the original material.

    Then watch ebay or similar for someone selling parts from a dismantled dead notebook.

    Hi Just recived this laptop as a gift and am looking at upgrading the 128gb msata to a 250 evo ssd. Just a quick question does the replacement drive have to msata or can it be a ssd such as samsung ssd evo sata iii 2.5 7mm 540 mb/s520mb /s?

    Also anyone know where you can buy replacement batteries for this laptop?

    Many Thanks
    D

    Are you sure you're in the right forum? This model hasn't been sold for quite a while and doesn't have an mSata port.
