    :)

    If the laptop gets screwy 5 beeps is the error you seek, basically the laptop telling you it's ready for reset and boot.

    That's with peg or are you back to SG?

    I'm still on SG but only because I was busy, I reached a stopping point but going to shower and eat before I try it again.

    I ran doom 2016 this morning. Mostly using auto detect settings (mostly low I think and some medium) with 1600x900 resolution 90% scale I get something like 75 to 130 fps. Depends on what's on screen, background or looking at a wall fps shoots up, to be expected and 85-90fps average.

    I feel the input lag that SG generates though.

    Haven't got to dolphin yet, still trying to get my mapped drive working. Shows up on my computer but can't access it. It's why I never got into networking aspect of IT support lol

    I believe I am on SG (Hd 4600 and 8950)

    This honestly does seem to be a nice alternative to my 765m, pulling a decent bit more FPS in DX11 and a alot more in DX12/Vulkan (Rise of the Tomb Raider and Wolfenstein 2)

    When it works

    Yeah I am still curious as to how to get PEG working more consistently. The 8950m would essentially be perfect at that point as a backup card under the LVDS panels. I suppose the 960m/965m might be the card of choice as a backup for eDP panels.

    Im still cleaning up my ISO's and figuring out the network drive issue. Dont want to have to move 500GB of ISO's if I dont have to.

    It seemed to work fine for me, my issue is I just couldn't flash it in this machine. Works fine now

    That would be a shame

    Were you able to get a screenshot of something like GPU-Z?

    Well now GPU-Z is failing to launch. curious, I guess ill try the portable version instead of installation.

    Portable version fails as well. May well need to use DDU in safe mode and try reinstalling drivers to make sure my baseline is there.
