    I would also check the power settings. If you switch it to MyHighPerformance you actually get worse performance on benchmarks and games. Keep it on Balanced.

    A lot of times it can be from you plugging in the laptop and unplugging it and I've heard the term "static electricity" being stuck in the system causing it to hang up or do what you mentioned. Sometimes it won't power on at all. You can typically try to disconnect the power and battery then pressing the power button 20 times. Plugging it back in and trying again.

    I think you are correct since I tested every single component and everything seem to work out just fine. Thanks.

    When I have the volume turned all the way down I have a slight static sound coming from my speakers which has become very annoying. Is there any way to turn the speakers all the way off so they don't do this?

    I can't remember if this has already been addressed but I couldn't find it looking back through the pages.

    Mate, I'm having a similar issue ... as have had some other users here in this thread. Already tried different drivers to no avail.
    Running the newest Realtek HD Audio driver atm, which at least turns the speakers completely off as long as there is no audio being played. As soon as audio "exists", even if muted audio or muted speakers, they start to give off an audible buzz. The buzz doesn't change if I raise/lower volume but turns slightly deeper and quieter if I mute the speakers.
    Going to send it back in -again!- to have them check and probably replace the speakers. If it isn't the speakers, there's only two more options: audiochip on the motherboard or coil whine, caused by who knows which compnents. Not a deal breaker, but maaan... I paid A LOT of money for this thing :(

    I had the same issue happening every time I powered on after installing the modded BIOS, solved restoring optimized default settings in bios while reseating didn't solved. Maybe the cause was different.

    Help needed my dear OP laptop owners!!

    I had the OP 15+ laptop for about 3 weeks and I found a wierd problem.
    The CPU "uncore" power consumption is always high at about 11w, and I can't get good cinebench score due to this. But when the gtx 1060 is in use or if I uninstall the nvidia drivers, then uncore power consumption becomes normal at arount 4w and i get better CB scores.
    I have installed all latest drivers from the OP support site and even tried drivers from other brands and reinstalled win10 two times.

    Can you check you CPU idle power consumption especially the uncore part? What nvidia driver version are you using now? This really seems like a driver related issue.

    Thank you!

    Same as me. I've noticed that when I start gaming and PC goes in windows gaming mode that should kill some backround programs the uncore power goes to stable 4/5W. Then when I close the game immidiately goes back to 11W.
    The problem is surely some background program, don't know if NVIDIA related, and I've seen on internet other users having the same issue on other laptops with same CPU as this one.
    Is there any program that shows real time power consumption for every single app or background process?
