    Hi, does anyone know why my laptop fans won't run at full speed ? They stuck at 4900 rpm while previously they can get to ~5100 rpm.

    This is likely the problem as the Nvidia GTX in laptops do not have NVDEC hardware for decoding video. It can still do it using the CUDA cores but not efficiently. Likely gets very hot.

    The intel gpu has circuits for quick sync video support for video decoding. Use it.

    So I will select Intel quicksync for hardware decoder instead of Nvidia cuvid?

    If that's an option. I use Pot Player so haven't touched VLC or MPC in ages.

    I'm using PotPlayer also. It's the most efficient videoplayer on 4k screen.
    MPC-HC (which I was using on my previous laptop) and VLC use more battery on 4k display.

    Hi, I just wanted to know if someone has experienced any battery issues. I bought the 9560 about 3 months ago and a full charge would last about 7 to 8 hours on light use but now it only lasts about 3 hours and the only difference is that I updated all the computer drivers, even the Nvidia one. Could that be the reason?

    The computer has been working fine, the only problem I have is the battery life.

    Maybe some app is using nVidia GPU instead of Intel?

    I just ran into the same issue with the Nvidia driver. Even the previous version crashes at my desktop. I need to revert back to the Dell version :/
