laptop battery dying?

10 July 2017 - 06:08 AM

So i got myself a fancy laptop a while ago (June 2016) and it did what it need to do quite well.

 

Currently i have the laptop on the charger and it is stuck on 93%, but the laptop says it is still charging.

This has been going on for a few hours now, it will not go on green so to say (orange when charging, green when full)

 

i looked at the battery report that windows made, but i am not becoming any wiser lol.

 

i unplug the charger when watching movies or typing reports and the like, until windows prompts me to say to plug it in if it is at 10%.

iI did this in hopes of decreasing a "lazy battery" pattern, but i guess it did not help me if i see the symptoms it has now.

 

Hopefully someone here knows whats up.

 

i just bluntly copied pasted the data in a notepad file, sorry for the jumpy text.


Odd behaviour HDD

24 April 2017 - 04:50 AM

So every so often my HDD goes to 100% out of nowhere (usually when i watch a video) and stays there for a minute or 2 before backing down and resuming as usual.
Afterwards i get an error saying "server execution failed" - but i am not connected to the internet most of the time (laptop, only go to library for internet stuff like emails and shit) and i do not get this error all the time (it comes and goes about once a month? if even that). Also, when i access a file (like playing a video) the HDD "clicks" before attempting to play it, but it does not do that after it has done that initially (so all the things i do after it, it does not "click") i just assuming this has to do with accessing the data on the disk, so i am not that worried about this, but i thought i'd give it a mention.
 
I crystal-disk check the disk, everything seems healthy, but i am still a bit worried. Also did a disk check in windows itself.
Do i have a setting enabled that does this or is this a problem in windows 10 itself (anniversary update installed).
 
I backed up some important files, just in case the HDD is failing (although it only is about a year old).
 
So am i doing something wrong here, are my settings not right, or is my HDD failing on me already?
I have added a crystaldisk info screenshot if anything peculiar can be found there.
 
I thought i'd ask here for some answers.

Monitor overclocking, I need answers ;A;

03 March 2017 - 04:15 AM

Since Google does not help me finding my answers, I come here for some trustworthy advise.

 

I have a laptop at the moment (G751JY) with a pretty good 75Hz Gsync monitor on it.

Now, I tried overclocking it, and came out at a solid 100Hz.

 

Obviously my question that follows is, is it "safe" to leave it at these numbers?

Tried a few tests and it stays stable for the time that i tested it (used a webpage as well (http://www.testufo.c...test=framerates) and it stays "Valid" for all the time I have it open.

 

Main concern is, does the lifespan of the monitor degrade if i use it at 100Hz, and if so, any estimates of how much?

 

I know these are pretty much guess work questions, but if someone has experience in overclocking monitors and lifespan, I would gladly read it.


R.I.P. Satoru Iwata ;A;

Japanese video game maker Nintendo has said its chief executive Satoru Iwata has died of cancer at the age of 55.

 

When I read this news I looked at it with some disbelieve.

I grew up (and probably many of you too) with Nintendo consoles and the fact that the master mind behind it all has passed away at such a young age, is quite a shock.

 

Hopefully Nintendo will come through these sad times.
