    My problem was a wonky 3.5mm headphone jack on my OP-LP2 laptop. Looks like it's gonna be a PITA getting a daughter board from Eluktronics... so, here's what I did: I put a tiny little dab of LocTite crazy glue (cyanoacrylate) in the little "valley" near the tip of the 3.5mm plug on my Audio-Technica ATH-M50x phones, then quickly sprinkled some baking soda on it, then did the same thing on the long portion of the plug, around the other side. I let it dry for a couple hours. Fits into the plug nice & snug, no more wonky connection / no more headphone plug popping in and out of the jack. Signal is loud & clear. Been a few weeks now. End of problem.

    Hello everyone. I just updated my Intel integrated grphaics drivers and my Nvidia Drivers and my battery consumption has tanked. At idle I used to draw 2-4W power and now I'm drawing 12-14W according to Throttle Stop. Can anyone help me?

    System specs... GK5CP6Z (9750 + 1660 Ti) - Eluktronics Mech 15 G2rx

    Hi and happy Sunday.

    As it seems to coincide the driver change, that's where I would start undoing things. Try downgrading the Intel driver and set the system power plan to Balance or Power Saver.

    The best rule to apply to drivers and firmware is to never update them unless there is a compelling reason to. Never do it just because a newer version was released. Sometimes certain games require newer GeForce drivers because they'll nag you the crap out of you or even refuse to run if you don't update the GeForce driver. But, everything else is better off left alone if your machine is working correctly. Newer drivers and firmware are frequently inferior rather than better.

    The version of Intel GPU drivers that works the best for me is 26.20.100.7528. Any other causes similar issues to yours. For some reason it doesn't enter deeper C-States and power draw remains high even on idle. Right now it's ok for me, except when I use external display or use dGPU in general. dGPU active means no deeper C states.

    Why? Just curious. I'm guessing it was something simple. Thought maybe you had resolved it and could share what it was in case somebody else experiences the same thing later.

    What did you replace it with?

    Hey guys just curious what sorts of temperatures you get on your Tongfang gk5cp0z with the i7-8750h?

    Currently in games such as kingdom come deliverance I get like... 85-88degrees. With an undervolt of 120 on core and cache.

    Seems high? I have applied liquid metal two times to see if I had done it wrong the first time... Still rather high temps? I even lowered boost clock to only achieve 3.4ghz instead of 3.9.

    Any ideas or is this normal?

    Thanks for the reply, unfortunately Intel does not have that version of the driver available for download anymore. I guess I'll just try an older version of the driver or accept my battery life will be less than 2 hours from now on......

    Just wanted to update everyone. I used DDU to wipe out my current install on NVIDIA/Intel and then installed the most current Nvidia driver and Intel's 26.20.100.7642 for UHD Graphics 630. Everything is back to normal now.... system idle is now 3-4W.
