    Yesterday I spilled a cup of tea in my np770. I disassembled it, and blew it with a drier, but some keys stopped functioning.

    I have 2 spare laptops in my house, same model, but I was wondering how to remove the keys.... And tutorials?

    Nearly 4.5 years into its service, my beloved NP770Z5e is now experiencing the image retention/screen burn-in issue.
    To fix the issue I bought a new, compatible screen, which to my dismay was far inferior to the native. Viewing angle is so bad that the screen looks entirely different on top compared to bottom when looking straight at it. I was a fool to just assume a compatible screen would automatically be the same screen as the native. In hindsight I have found that they sell the same screen with IPS technology somewhere else.
    I decided looking at a slightly burned-in screen is better than looking at what I think must be a relic from the Jurassic age, so I changed back to my native screen, only to find that the burn-in issue had now become much more severe(!). Somehow, it seems the operation of changing displays worsened the issue.
    Does anyone make sense of this?

    Thats weird, never thought that could happen.

    How did you remove the front plastic that protects the screen? How did you glue that back into position? How does it look the ginal product?

    Can we expect BIOS update from Samsung to prevent Spectre & Meltdown risks? I doubt it but if anyone has any info it's appreciated.

    I have permission to post in two places. The other place is:
    http://forum.notebookreview.com/thr...tting-down-on-me-lately.812800/#post-10663818

    I've been getting an error code 0 xa 00000001 on my samsung laptop running a SSD with windows 8.1 about once every two weeks lately, usually while running my Adobe CS6 program. The computer suddenly shuts down, and while rebooting gives me that code. I can't remember everything it says as I only had time to scribble the code number. Can't be memory as I'm running 16GB DDR3 1600 memory. The control panel/system specs shows 16GB too.
    Googling doesn't come up with anything... closes it gets is 0xc00000001, but 0 xa 00000001 is exactly what I'm seeing on the blue screen while it's rebooting and repairing.
    Here is my notebook specs:
    Samsung ATIV Book 6 NP680Z5E-X01US - Intel Core i7 3635QM
    16GB DDR3 1600 memory - Samsung 850 EVO 250GB 2.5" SATA III SSD
    4TB WD Passport external Drive via USB - 1GB AMD Radeon 8770M
    + Switchable Graphics - touchscreen panel 15.6 inch 16:9 - 1920x1080
    Windows 8.1 x64


    Later Yesterday,
    Something not good is going on. Yesterday alone, I had the shutdown mentioned above, AND it froze on me twice and I had to hold the power button down to shut it off as the 3 finger bit didn't work. Stayed froze. All three times I was using my Adobe CS6 program when it happened.

    Don't know if this would be because of my SSD? In the past with SSD's if it was anywhere close to 3/4 full, they would slow down and cause problems. Mine has 115GB used space and 93GB free space, so it's approaching 3/4 full.

    Anybody???

    iF you doubt of your ssd you could use a program like SSDlife free to check intregity.

    But most likely, like the rest of the users here, your graphics card is starting to die.
