    Something scary happened this morning when I attempted to power-on my ThongFang CK5CQ7Z. It powered-on briefly and instantly powered down! No idea how the issue resolved itself, all I did was reseated the memory modules, disconnected the battery plus CMOS battery. Everything works normally again. Any explanation or documented reason to why my ThongFang laptop powered on for a split second and shut itself down?

    I have the chinese 'Machenike f117' version of it. And also when I try to open the hback of the laptop, after removing the screws something in the middle still holds it togtether I dont know how to open it and I dont wanna break something.

    Hi Leonard,

    Based on this video on YouTube it does not look like a TongFang chassis:


    It looks more like an Acer Predator.

    Here is a teardown for the Predator, and it does talk about the difficulty in getting the back cover off:

    Cool, the TongFangs are very easy to open up. Good luck getting your thermal throttling under control. Check the screws on the heat sync

    From what I can find on geekbuying.com, this is not the same laptop in any way.

    https://www.geekbuying.com/item/Machenike-F117-F2U-15-6-Inches-GTX1050-Gaming-Notebook-376091.html

    I agree with @seahawk10 that this is an older Helios 300 clone.

    The biggest drawback with gaming is the GPU being a GTX1050, I bought the one with the 8750H processor, 16 gb ram, and the GTX1060 and have no problems with any game I throw its way.

    Make sure you are plugged in while gaming, you have correctly used Throttlestop, and your power profiles are setup correctly for performance.

    Also, you might want to check on a BIOS update for that model.

    Did your laptop ship with a 180w power brick or is it a <150w?
