    Every single output is wired to the primary GPU.

    Thanks...that was my guess but I needed to be sure So if I was passing through a secondary GPU for VM use, I'd probably want some solid remote access software for the VM. Appreciate it!

    No problem, also remember the IGP is unpowered and totally unavailable.

    Hello Everyone,
    My RMA'd system is coming back to me this Friday so am waiting for it :) . I got the 780 W power adapter for the machine but the connector that goes into the laptop is somewhat small and so drops out very easily. I thought that if I can paste a couple of STRONG ring magnets inside the system around the socket then it would attract the connector to a degree and help keep it in place. In the meantime I wanted to ask if anyone has tried making something similar to this https://www.instructables.com/id/MagSafe-for-the-Rest-of-Us-A-DIY-Magnetic-Power-A/ . Please note that I didn't wish to change anything on the connector itself as shown here but just to paste some magnets inside / around the socket that receives the wire. Any suggestions anyone ?

    Do you have an answer from RMA? And what was the problem with the laptop?
    P.s we have a new bios update, for our problem with the sleep mode.

    I would not place magnets in unintended places.

    That is why I was asking if this would be ok or something problematic as all I was doing is put some magnets to act as a partial pull / support for the power cord so it goes in the socket and sticks there for a bit ! .

    I think hid already updated the BIOS for me so I should have it with the new BIOS. The issue was that the laptop suddenly stopped in the middle of the game and the display went black. I sent it to HID and after inspection they told me that the graphics went off and likely due the issue they quoted as one with the evoc 870tmr for which they had sent emails to all owners for an RMA to correct it. So hopefully it should be fine

    I'd recommend the cord being let rest on the desk before going off the edge of the desk.

    I got my system after the RMA and it looks fine except for one thing. The other things are working fine but for the life of me I cannot figure out how to install the audio drivers properly which enables the internal DAC. I have tried a few of the drivers from here http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/realtek-hd-audio-mod-for-clevo.814860/page-18 but none of them install. All of them give me an error: Install Realtek HD Audio driver Failure! Error Code: 0xE000024B. Can someone help me with this or redirect me to drivers I can install ?
