Re: Weird error message

Is this a Clevo laptop? There's a few forum topics which claim this error message is related to the hotkey driver and uninstalling then reinstalling a fresh copy of the driver should work. Yes, it's a Clevo chassis from PC Specialist. I'll look that up, thanks. Got any links? I didn't find anything...

DDR3 memory compatability problem

I upgraded a friend's PC at the weekend - 2TB HDD and Windows 7 went without a hitch, but the RAM didn't work. We took along one of the two existing 2GB DDR3 DIMMs, and came back with two different 4GB DIMMs from different shops. This was probably a mistake, trying to use midmatched RAM, but I don't...

Re: SLi Power Supply

I don't really think the LGA2011 platform is remotely suitable for a laptop... The main reason I went for that is that the chassis has 3 hard drive bays, and PCSpecialist don't do that chassis with a mobile processor. Well, maybe 2TB will be enough: https://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/notebooks/vortexIV...

Re: SLi Power Supply

Interesting. Thanks. Looks like it's not compulsory, but then again a laptop should run without any external power really.

SLi Power Supply

http://pcspecialist.co.uk/notebooks/omegaII/

What does the SLi adapter on the power supply mean? Does it have a separate power input for the graphics cards? Am I going to need to plug this beast into two power sockets?!

Re: Where are all the new laptops?

I know you didn't ask, so feel free to ignore me (everyone else does), but that spec could be a bit pricey compared to somewhere like, say, PCspecialist . But I've no knowledge of that company or their build quality, could be rubbish. My last two laptops were built to order from small companies - a...

I'm quite tempted by an MSI GT70. Any horror stories?

Re: Win7 reporting 2GB instead of 4

I think that the problem is actually temperature related. If the machine is cold, it only detects half the RAM.

Win7 reporting 2GB instead of 4

Every time I reboot my laptop, Windows only discovers 2GB of RAM unless I hit F2 to bring up the BIOS screen and save and quit. Any ideas? Battery problem perhaps?
