    I bought a refurbished Aero 15X in february this year and appart from the typical keyboard and temp problems it had been working great. Then, in june, I was about to start working and suddenly the computer would not boot, being stuck in a windows loading screen loop. Thought this was a software problem so I managed to start it in boot repair mode and I got inside just enough to recover all my data. After that, the transcend ssd wasn't even recognised by the computer, and only the bios screen would show up.

    As I really needed the computer I bought a 970 EVO and reinstalled the OS (so I finally got around the much needed fresh install :).
    Last week I contacted eSupport and after 9 days they only told me to avoid changing anything (too late for that) and to contact a service center called Ename to check if this ssd failure was caused by a more problematic hardware fault. So all in all, it doesn't look like I'm getting that ssd replaced.

    Thing is, I'm scared of those faulty motherboards that were mentioned here. Has anyone contacted that service center (Ename) for this reason?

    Does anyone here have the Aero 15 OLED SA? The left hinge has 2 connector thingie, but the right hinge seems to only have 1 connector thingie. Is this normal??

    Thanks for the confirmation. That is a weird design decision. Now, I'm slightly less confident in the longevity of the hinge...

    Any idea what thermal pads are used on the Aero 15-x9? Mine didn't come with any and I'm thinking of putting some Fujipoly Extremes but I'm wondering if it uses 1.0mm or 0.5mm. The heatsink seems kinda flimsy.

    They're for an additional SSD.
