    Same. Even just DDU-ed the intel drivers and nothing is working for me. 2 and a half hours at most on the bigger battery with really high C states and power draw in the region of 11 to 15w on battery

    Thanks so much for linking that. I can confirm that it is the Nvidia driver causing the massive package power draw. Just DDU-ed and am sitting on less than 5w idle plugged in

    edit: Getting around that level of power draw on battery as well. Am i doing something wrong?

    edit 2: Did that work around with 441.41 and i have my battery life back. Lowest C state is C8 and getting less than 2w idle on battery and plugged in

    One question, for higher C states like C8, nothing should be running right? Even not a browser?

    Also anyone with power draw issue, background tasks of rivatuner statistics and MSI Afterburner was the offenders for me. I quit them as soon as I am on battery and immediately fixes power draw. I think their monitoring wakes gpu up when not needed. OP mentions about similar behaviour but it is about applying overclock, not just sitting there and monitoring. Which latter also causes the issue of power draw.

    does any of you know if it is possible to run the laptop without the battery in it? i want to get some data of the 2.5" drive, but would rather not reverse my battery mod (putting the small battery back in). welp, if nobody knows ill just try.

    edit: figured i could just plug in the battery and the drive at the same time if i leave the backlid open.

    Hi,

    I have the Overpowered OP-LP2 flavor of this laptop, and I'm having some trouble with it after having it for about a year. Whenever I run a program after a while, I get these squares all over my screen (it happens whether I am using the laptop screen or an external monitor, or both). The squares move around as the image behind the monitor moves, and interestingly the mouse can scroll over them. If I am just browsing the web, it takes about 30 minutes or so for it to happen, but if I am doing anything graphically intensive (e.g. Unity development, 3D gaming, etc.), it'll happen very quickly. Sometimes it happens just to the application, while other times it'll happen to all applications and even the desktop. I have enabled and disabled the GTX 1060, uninstalled, reinstalled and updated drivers, and just did a factory reset (including all settings wiped) of Windows 10, and the issue is still here. This happens whether the laptop is plugged in or on battery, and even if I have no peripherals attached. Normally I can figure these things out, but I'm pretty stumped on this one. Any ideas? I'm curious if the RAM is suspect. I attached an image of what the issue looks like.

    Edit: RAM replacement did not fix it :(

    Thanks!
