    check in bios, you will be able to see if the nvme controller or sata controller is occupied.

    Hi all. About a month ago, I bought a Gigabyte Aero 15x (i7-8750H with NVidia 1070MaxQ).
    Everything went really well until this morning when I opened it and the screen was completely black (no power), instead the keyboard and the LEDs worked.The Gigabyte logo also lights up.

    I connected it via HDMI to an external monitor and it worked. I tried to look through Computer-> Manage if the screen is being seen, but it does not appear. It can not be seen in either the display settings or the NVidia Control Panel . I tried all the possible key combinations, FN + F1,2,3 etc.

    I wonder if there is an option in Bios or something similar to turn laptop display off ... I cannot view the bios configuration menu on an external screen.. so can anyone help me with the key combination to reset the bios to default values, save and exit ? (Something like F2 to enter bios, down down down, left down etc..)

    I would be grateful if someone had another idea that I can try, without opening the laptop back panel. If not, I will probably send it to the warranty. Thank you.

    (Sorry for my bad english :) )

    Anyone else unable to switch between on and of the touchpad? I can press fn + 10 as many times as I want but always shows the pop up "TouchPad On". Any fix?

    EIDT: Reinstalled SmartManager and working again as expected.

    I like to add my observations!

    After Windows 10 1803 was not stable on my AERO 15 even with the latest nvidia drivers, I mailed Gigabyte support. They suggested that I use the latest nvidia driver from the Gigabyte support page. There, I found the recently added 24.21.13.9882, which I decode as 398.82, so exactly the driver version that was already installed and not properly working on my AERO 15. Still, I tried: I used Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU) in Windows Safe Mode to cleanly uninstall nvidia driver and then installed the driver Gigabyte provided.

    System is still unstable, but the symptoms are different:

    Sometimes the driver just "hickups" and restarts (which leaves a message like "Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered." in Windows event log).

    Sometimes I get these beauties:

    Sometimes the screen just turns black and the monitor show a message that there is no signal. Then I unplug the external monitor or blindly type Windows+P to switch back to the internal display.

    To exclude cabling issues, I switched from the mini display port to HDMI connection. Now I sometimes see this on my external display:

    In terms of stability, this notebook is the worst hardware I ever had. :mad:

    Hi everyone, I have the v8 Aero 15 and I just wanted to say that I followed someone's advice to update all of the intel chipset and graphics drivers to the latest versions using Intel's website (regardless of what Gigabyte claims). After doing this, the laptop has been much much more stable and all of the mouse stutters have disappeared.

    I hope this helps some of you also!

    you could try F2 or DEL to enter the BIOS right after boot.....or F9 for complete recovery
    but from my experience maybe it was due to the loosen of eDP cable so maybe just go for the warranty

    Hi All :) Did someone have the same issue with the Aero chassis bending over time. Mine had a "dip"/concave bent between the bottom of the space bar and the top of the trackpad, I also noticed MobileTechReview's review unit had the same issue. Also due my laptop has a convex bend, this time, at the bottom of the touchpad resulting with gaps on the sides between the lid and the palmrest when the laptop is closed.

    Luckily the bend occured at the bottom of the laptop and not on the top where the GPU and CPU is located as that may cause issues in the future (disconnected solder joints maybe or fan noise?).

    Does anyone know of a good hard case for this laptop? I went with this laptop instead of a Dell XPS 15 and MSI GS63VR as both were said to have the same chassis bending issues. Linus and his staff also had the same problem with their Razer Blades resulting in multiple RMA's.

    Maybe an all plastic construction is the real way to go I guess. Or if they do choose aluminum, they should just go all the way with a unibody design and not choose a hybrid/combination of materials (Carbon Fiber (Dell) or Plastic (Gigabyte)).

    Mine also had a bending issue but at the center where it lifts up on the table. I went with this laptop instead of a Dell XPS 15 (as told by Techchap) and MSI GS63VR (many reviewers) as both were said to have the same chassis bending issues. Linus and his staff also had the same problem with their Razer Blades resulting in multiple and recurring RMA's (a table of the said cases shown on their Razer Blade 15 review video).

    Maybe an all plastic construction is the real way to go I guess. Or if they do choose aluminum, they should just go all the way with a unibody design and not choose a hybrid/combination of materials or paneling (Carbon Fiber/Fiber Glass (Dell) or Plastic (Gigabyte, Asus and MSI)).
