    Sounds like a repaste is needed.

    1060 requires no BIOS AFAIK and the usual modified inf should do it.

    Ok. Will take a look. Costs more than the laptop itself. ;)

    Have no high end compound here but arctic cooling silicon compound is doing its job fine with temps below 70 degree.

    This generation of machine is a bit more forgiving on compound and the like.

    My laptop is having some issues. I have been trying to find out why and to solve it, but in vain.

    It works perfectly fine as long as I don't launch any software that uses the dGPU (GTX1060). Whenever I launch games, GPU-Z or the nVidia control panel, the laptop starts beeping and the fans run at max speed (the EC panics). The same happens when I go into the BIOS.

    I tried to flash the BIOS, but when I got into the page where I type the commands, it started beeping again. Didn't continue to flash the BIOS as I was afraid the laptop would shut itself half way through the process and hence brick the laptop.

    Both the Windows and GPU-Z can detect the dGPU without issue. Just that it beeps once I get into games etc.

    Any idea why it is happening? Is it because of the dGPU? Or it's my motherboard having some issues? Thanks.

    Has it ever worked or is this a new card?

    I have been using the card for 9 months. Only started to get this issue few days ago.

    Did anything happen to the machine before it started happening? Did you try a fresh Intel and nvidia gpu driver install?

    Nothing happened before getting this issue. Not even a blue screen.

    I haven't tried re-installing the drivers, but I am thinking it's not drivers related since it beeps as well when I go into BIOS? I mean I can try re-installing the drivers or even the whole Windows, but just curious to know.

    You could remove the card and clean the contacts and connectors.

    I tried, but that didn't work.

    Edit: I didn't realize my CPU clock stays at 3.5 Ghz until just now. It no longer steps down / up the frequency according to the load. Seems like the BIOS / EC has ran into problems? Is there any way I can flash the BIOS ever though it beeps whenever I get into BIOS / the command page to flash it?
