    Im still waiting new screen. Visually all scheme components is ok, where i live nobody have due qualification to help me. I search display cable too, someone selling it on ali for 50$, but i think cable is ok. Its maybe not temp related, but when laptop works with hard loading, some chip gives incorrect voltage to screen scheme and something fails, thats my theory. High temperature does not influencing directly on screen 100%.

    Hey guys. Sorta unrelated but i thought this sub would be of extra help.

    I'm using the 17in brother of the GK5 and i'm getting really horrible battery life with office mode and full power saving settings enable. With the 4 cell batt, i'm only getting around 2 ish hours.

    My C states on battery are all in C2 and C3 (most of it) and i'm drawing more than 10w just idling. It used to be way less than that but i'm not too sure what caused it to change. I don't have a lot of services running in the background and my GPU is not on according to TS.

    Can anyone shed some light on this?

    I removed the whole motherboard from the case before I took the bottom ribbon cable out. That was kind of a pain but not too bad. You just have to be careful removing all the little cables and connectors off the motherboard.

    Read my post on page 452. Find and install all the OEM drivers. Be sure to under-volt and also make sure that you don't have MSI afterburner running.

    I've had same problem about c-states. My solution was to install oem intel chipset driver.

    I'll give that a shot. Do you just download it and install over the current one? Or did you uninstall it through control panel or something else?

    This is the display problem I have. Display backlight basically won't go higher than the lowest setting, and flickers badly at the next to lowest setting. If anyone else has had this problem I would love to know how you fixed it!
