    I took the puffy battery out and I am running on mains power. I haven't installed the new higher capacity because I didn't see anything about the higher voltage although I have found 3 images of it in the this latop.

    I finally installd the battery. Does anyone who already did this know the bst way to remove the hard disk cable?

    I installed the new battery but damaged keyboard cable in the process.

    The laptop worked with the back cover removed but finally I decided to disconnect the cable and use an external keyboard.

    It worked fine for the rest of the day but this morning when I pressed the power button the light briefly flashed but nothing displayed on the screen so now is doesn't boot.

    I don't really want to send it back to PC Specialist and not have it for a week.

    I ordered new keyboard cables from Ali Express but they will take a week.

    I also replaced the thermal paste at the same time.

    Any thoughts of what to try?

    Hey guys I am new here. I remember saving this page from the recommendation of Bob on YouTube when I bought the OP LP-2 (8th gen i7 + 1060) nearly 2 years ago. I have had no issues w/ this laptop until last night I got the screen flickering issue above 10% while I was playing apex legends (happened out of the blue in the middle of a game). I've read through a ton of the posts in the thread and have not seen any solution that worked for me. I tried the one posted that involved increasing and decreasing the brightness using the function keys, but no matter what I did, it flickered at anything above 10%. It happens both plugged in and on battery as well.

    I am still within the warranty period, but am wondering if anyone has had any success fixing this issue in case I don't have to send it in or if anyone has had any success with using the warranty and what that entailed? I have not made any changes to the laptop except installing an extra 16gb stick of ram into the second slot and am wondering if that would void my warranty?

    Ok well, after posting this the flickering started happening even at 10% brightness. The only way to stop the flickering is have the brightness at 0%.

    I am using Eluktronics Matrix RP 15 laptop. Because of my curiosity I installed the Oemsevtool file of the XMG Core 15 laptop, which is the same laptop but sold by different resellers. Now I went back to stock settings by installing my laptop's own bios and ec files. However, Eluktronics Oemsev does not use the file. So I opened the Oemsev file of the XMG Core 15 laptop and wanted to see what it changed. But I didn't understand much. According to the description in the file, these settings are written on bios and do not change in bios updates.

    This computer laptop has a few EEPROM memory addresses that are not overwritten
    by EC / BIOS update. Instead, they are updated by what we call the "oemsevtool".
    This tool is able to set certain bits and flags in the BIOS memory to specify
    certain features, like keyboard backlight and total system power budget.
    Each laptop model with each CPU and GPU SKU has a different oemsevtool. Please
    make sure to double check that you have the correct Product ID, CPU and GPU as
    specified in the filename of the tool.
    If you run the wrong oemsevtool for your system, you can easily revert by
    running the correct oemsevtool afterwards.
    Usually, oemsevtool only needs to be run once on each single machine. This is
    usually done during our system production. The bits and flags set by this tool
    are not overwritten by future BIOS updates.
    However, there have been single cases of units where single bits and flags had
    to be set again. This is why we keep the oemsevtool publicly available in case
    it is required for future troubleshooting.
    These are what is written in the file. When I open the oemsevtool file, it has these settings:
    @echo off
    OemServiceWinApp.exe SetApCtrl / clear
    OemServiceWinApp.exe SetApCtrl / MK 0 / WK 1 / FB 1 / RGBKB 0 / CHINA 0 / OC 0
    OemServiceWinApp.exe oemtdr / settdr 0xa
    OemServiceWinApp.exe RGBKB / set 005050
    OemServiceWinApp.exe SetApCtrl / RGBKB 1
    OemServiceWinApp.exe SetApCtrl / CHINA 0
    OemServiceWinApp.exe SetApCtrl / BL 0
    OemServiceWinApp.exe AdpType / set 2
    OemServiceWinApp.exe turbomode / set 1
    OemServiceWinApp.exe Modelid / set 3
    AMIDEWINx64.exe / OS 11 "FBM-GK5NR0O0074STG"
    AMIDEWINx64.exe / OS 12 "GK5NR0O"
    OemServiceWinApp.exe Nbtype / Table 35
    : eof

    Now my question is. Are these settings really overwritten by EPPROM? Because oemservicewinApp application comes with Control Center. If I delete Control Center-i then these settings are gone? Actually what I want is to set my laptop to its stock settings. GPU performance is weaker than that of other friends using this laptop according to GeekBench 4 tests (OpenCPL). According to 3DMart tests, it is 3 4% behind. When I tested the RDR 2, I did not observe a fps drop. I am waiting for your help right now. What is this oemsev file? What actions does it do? where does it do how to remove

    update on my freeze/BSOD situation with my OP-LP2:

    it ran relatively fine for the last few months. nonetheless, freezing issues reoccur every now and then, maybe 2-3 times a week. now as some sort of a routine, when i notice hickups, i try to immediately close the lid so the system does not get the chance to actually freeze up.

    one time the laptop out of nowhere wouldnt get past the OP-Logo when booting, always hardfreezing almost immediately. even the bios froze during that state. interestingly enough pulling the SSD's out and putting them back into the same (!) slot (one NVMe Samsung EVO 970 and the stock SATA SSD into the foreseen slots) resolved the issue, and i could use the laptop again for a few weeks until eventually the BSOD CRITICAL PROCESS DIED issues started appearing again. now, what is weird, is that today for the first time the NVMe drive did not get recognized (didnt show up in explorer). eventually rebooting solved the issue but after a while the NVMe drive disappeared again, even while windows was running (eventually the good ol' reinserting the SSD's into the same slots helped again, and it seems to be 'stable' now). before the most recent incident i always thought that the stock SSD might be the issue, but now that the newest part of my system doesnt get recognized reliably i guess it actually might be a motherboard --> SSD communication issue?

    what i wanted to do next, but postponed until now because freezing can occur in basically every state, is moving my OS from SATA to NVMe.

    i am beyond fed up with the situation, i would pay a good price if someone could just point me in the right direction or fix my system (motherboard replacement i guess? does that even work since the CPU and GPU are soldered onto the board? does any1 know reliable places to go to for such matters?).


    If you read all this, thank you very much. any guess of what is happening to my system is appreciated. quoted below you can find the prologue to this situation.

    Hi all, I was wondering if someone could have a look at my throttlestop settings. Just to make sure I havent done anything that might cause harm :)

    I was having bad temperature problems after a warranty repair (motherboard replacement) so I decided to re-paste the CPU and GPU before sending the laptop back again.

    I'm very happy with the results now (before the re-paste, I was getting spikes to 100 degrees!) but wanted to make sure there is nothing in my settings that might do damage. I've never tried undervolting before.

    The laptop is a PCSpecialist Recoil with a i7 9750h and RTX 2070

    Thanks in advance....

    Is anyone having random BSOD errors (Faulty Error Corrupted Page and others)? I have a stock OP-LP2 with a firmware update. It started a few months back and happens infrequently, but often hangs when creating the minidump file so it's hard to parse the error. I've done all the traditional troubleshooting. The file system is fine, drivers and Windows are updated, the SSD and HDD read normal, and I passed 8 runs of memtest. I turned off hibernate and fast boot, but still having errors. I have a number of games installed but it's relatively light in the grand scheme of things. I just updated the IMEI driver, which some claim can cause this problem. Are these any other driver issues I should be aware of? Is there a way to stress test the motherboard? If it's hardware, I'd love to know as I am still in my warranty period.

    Try updating manually to last Intel WIFI Drivers, previous versions are known to cause BSOD as written in the release notes. https://downloadcenter.intel.com/it...-schede-di-rete-wireless-Intel-?product=59485

    I have a problem. My laptop screen won't stop flickering when the brightness is too high. It is unusable at higher brightness. But when I lower the brightness to the lowest possible setting on battery, the flickering stops. When plugged in, I can up the brightness by one notch. The cause of all this is that while I was playing a game, suddenly, a power outage occurred in my area. Anybody know a possible fix for this?

    Other details that might help: I'm currently using Throttlestop. I had it set to an "overlock" setting while playing the game. In the settings, I setup a battery profile that automatically changes it to my "low power" profile for battery mode when the laptop isn't plugged in. Is it possible that the sudden shift in throttlestop from the overclock setting to the low power mode when the outage occurred caused the flickering? My laptop was also hot while playing the game (about 75-80 C). Also, I plugged the laptop to an external monitor and it is normal on the monitor (laptop is still flickering though).

    The laptop is Eluktronics Mech-17 G1R, i7-8750h, RTX 2060, 1080p 144hz, bought last March 2019.
