    Hey, My hitman edition laptop is turning off on its own while gaming now. It is not overheating so i don't know whats causing it.
    Anyone have any ideas, The HDD light is solid whenever it happens

    Does anyone have the bios password for the GX60 1AC edition? Somehow for some random reason, it locked me out of the bios.

    And also does anyone also have the GX60 1AC factory reset partition that comes with the laptop? I know that you can create a recovery CD or USB with MSI burner recovery. Then you could copy the files and upload them to a MEGA. Then I could download and use it.

    Thank you, those instructions worked perfectly!

    Do you (or anyone) know what BIOS options are needed to completely disable the dedicated 7970m?

    I tried setting Integrated Graphics - change to FORCE and disabling everything in the AMD Power Express Configuration page, but it doesn't seem like that's enough.

    The laptop struggles to boot now. It only seems to turn off when using dedicated graphics such as when booting and gaming.

    Yes, those on the MSI website I have on recovery partition , but they're old. On the AMD website there are no drivers for Windows 8 (7, 8.1 and 10 only)
    It does not matter, Windows 8.1 alredy instaled so no problem longer with that. Thanks.

    My laptop will not even boot now, it shuts off about a minute into running even in the bios. What could be failing to cause this?

    Perhaps CPU is overheating? Have you checked the heatsink and make sure it's secured?
