    Is anyone getting flicker on their light bar only (OP LP 2)? My keyboard LEDs work fine, but the light bar has developed an annoying flicker. I recently updated my Nvidia drivers - could it be related to that?

    Hi, I have a tongfang GK5CN6Z (from pcspecialist) and i'm having problems with something related to the gpu. First of all, I'm having random BlueScreens from windows( Video_DXGKRNL_FATAL_ERROR, WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR, VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE (nvlddmkm.sys) are some of the errors it's showing).
    In the other hand, when the pc is running with battery the gtx1060 it's not detected well and can't use it, programs keep throwing an incompatible dx gpu error, but if I connect the charger and restart gpu appears to work correctly, but I still have some random bluescreens.

    Things I have tried:
    - Update bios from - BIOS 1.04 - EC 1.25 - PCSpecialist - GK5CN6Z (EFI) to - BIOS 1.03 - EC 1.29.29 - XMG - GK5CN6Z (EFI) - Apparently the most power saving
    -
    Update igpu, chipset and gpu drivers using the latest I could find in intel and nvidia web

    let me know if someone has any clue on how to solve this problem

    Thank you so much! With this i solved the problem of 40% battery like Stesteste and now also the battery lasts twice as long. I did not know that the HWMonitor and Afterburner always woke up the gpu. Really, I am very grateful to you.


    I had the same problem when dropping 40% battery and with this I have also solved it.

    If you are undervolting the GPU in an effort to keep thermals in check, then stop doing that and see if the problems go away. If they do, undervolt less. All of those errors suggest that either GPU voltage is set too low or a core overclock has been applied that is too high for the limited amount of voltage available.

    Modern notebook (and to somewhat less, but still unacceptable extent, so do desktop) GPUs suffer from voltage starvation more than power limit issues. People see the power limit problem and try to fix it, but ignore the equally damning voltage limits that ruin the capacity to improve performance. One without the other really puts a damper on things. You need the ability to control both to accomplish anything worth writing home about.

    Exactly same problem here... trackpad starts to be very hard to click, and today I opened the case and saw a swallen battery. I removed it and now I have a "non-portable" laptop.

    I wrote to pcspecialists (spain in my case), waiting for a response

    Searched for but couldnt find anyone with a similar problem(?), i bought a Eluktronics Mech 15 G2 (8750h/1060) and since it came i didnt even tested it and instantly updated the bios and EC with the BIOS 1.09 - EC 1.38.09 - XMG ones, and i dont know if its because of this or some sort of other problem but my GPU heavily throttles out once it reaches 64c and dont go past that, in some 3d programs i use to work i`ve seen it go past but 99% of the time it wont go past 64c and heavily throttles everything, frequency go to 900mhzish and i cant play anything without a powerful pad (2x 120mm at full blast) to not get throttled since the GPU can`t go past 64c.

    TL;DR: My GPU wont go past 64c, is that normal?

    Another puffy battery! @Chika-chan and I have the same problem, it really seems a problem with the battery of this model. I have used the laptop for the last 2 years to work intensively, monitoring the temperatures and usually they do not go above 60º but still the battery was so swollen that I couldn't even use the trackpad. It is not normal
