    I thought you have a PSU from alienware at home?
    this is for compare

    when need buy new .,..,ideal no-branded "DELTA" is native MSI

    this should be compatible list for 330w + need correct pin

    Never owned a Alienware, never will due to I never liked the design of their laptops or the headaches with them. To me it's swearing to even say that brand just like the word consoles, MSI or ASUS.

    The only PSU I have is from an old Sony VAIO which is very old under 120w and is 20v, even the barrel is off.

    But thanks for the other links, I now have 2 PSU's total ordered the Zbook one at 230w and the Alienware 330w which now leaves the only original parts in my GT72 being the CPU heatsink, main board and 2 of the 4 sticks of ram lol everything else has been basically replaced now.

    Update the PSU has finally gone gone, Whilst i was on iGPU the battery was 100% charged went to have something to eat it was at 92% whilst still plugged in and the AC light on the laptop did come on.

    So yeah back on my R61e for now. Oh well only have to wait till tomorrow now.

    you should check all this

    Bez názvu.png

    drivers - this must be only OEM windows
    ppinput when exist - enable graph "check any random spikes"

    battery .,,.voltage vs info on battery // wear level
    GT72 - 11.1V battery "minimal allowed voltage ??"

    and ideally MUTiLIMETR 20V measurement - check AC
    when is totally dead -- this will confirm it

    or in system "ppinput"

    not use DC -battery master or try remove battery calibration
    .,,.full recharge cycle 90./. trigger "90 starts recharge -100./. cycle"
    100-90./. --battery protection "recharge starts on 90./."

    ,.,,
    or is bad only PSU ,.,.,will see :D

    for any extreme total power draw - more stable 330w "for my gt75 7re"
    all limits is same "I think it is for 230w it is 250-260w max .,,.AC recharge and still discharge in extreme stress" ,,.but it will be more stable "because it is at 330w tested"

    best is DELTA - direct
    or some older MSI - CHICONY

    but mine is liteon - works normal "but liteon .,,..,is still delta "

    good luck

    Dude, when the PSU went and the battery discharged I was on the iGPU.

    New Delta electronics PSU from Amazon has arrived will test shortly.

    New PSU arrived, tested and Laptop boots to Windows and under full load draws 169w from the wall.

    Ran 3D mark firestrike it switched off on test 3.

    However on aida64 it hasn't done this.

    GPU clocks are stable at 2.012GHZ temps @ 77c and 83.8c Hotspot.

    Will test FS again in 5 minutes.

    Right, I am now typing on my GT72 with the Delta 330w PSU, after the gremlins went as it was doing the same for a few minutes everything is running at 100% Battery is charging a 8w due to being at 96% charged. The game that was showing the issue up is no longer doing the dropping FPS like mad. GPU and CPU Clocks are now more stable i mean on my Bench SSD i was getting 2.012ghz on the core during full load on the GPU with out it bouncing up and down like an muppet.

    So i guess the issue is now solved. Now time to report my thread to get it marked as solved.
