    LOL !!!

    Hi everyone !!!

    My Nvidia 1060M disappeared from Bios and device manager. Realtek sound card also, so no speaker sound. Opened up, no liquid metal spills, I re-seated cables, re-flashed Bios.

    I contacted Dell NL maybe they have some used MB that I can buy. The problem is there are still no high refresh 1080p or 1440p OLED laptops YET, so no gaming for forseeable future. 4k OLED is insanity in a laptop IMO.

    LMAO .... all this 2 weeks after my warranty expired !!!

    Otherwise all works fine, and I have laptop for browsing and watching films, at least.

    Guys, any ideas? Or else ...:vbeek: I am pulling out heat gun.

    Backup and try a clean Win 10 install after you have reset bios to default.

    You could also open up and chech the whole MB for flaws.
    Shouldn't bring the soundcard down the toilet.

    As someone whos recently been googling for 13R3 MB's due to my own technical problems, there are a few options on Ebay:
    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/183595877804?var=0
    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/174341205107

    Expensive though - think you can get a 2nd hand system for a bit more money. Also thats UK and as we're slowly imploding as a nation through the idiotic shambles that is brexit, I wouldnt trust a shipment to NL without some problems.

    Is the ME version correctly displayed? Could be BIOS issue.

    I honestly don't know if I want to keep this laptop anymore. Ever since I got my gaming desktop with a 2060 Super my 13R3 has just been gathering dust. Took it over to my parents place now and I just can't game with it. It feels very sluggish with high input lag (even when I have 60+ fps). Maybe 240hz spoiled me, but I never remembered 60fps being this bad/slow. It feels like I'm trying to move through molasses.

    The worst is when you're gaming on 120+ and recording videos for fun. Go and check the video and you're like "wtf is wrong with my video?? What is wrong with my pc?". Nothing is wrong. It's just recorded in 60fps and you got done experiencing it in 120+ haha
