  1. Hi, I've been using my Predator 15 for about a year now. Long story short, any drive connected to my laptop's SATA connector seems to be heating up beyond normal, causing random 100% usage for 10-20 sec, making things unresponsive. I bought the laptop through newegg and had it shipped to My country. So sending it to the retailer isn't an option. I don't understand the problem, is it the SATA connector? Or is it something else? Could anyone help me out here?

  3. So I bought the Predator 15 G9-593 about a year back from a NewEgg sale and had it shipped half way around the world to my country where there's no Amazon, PayPal etc. I for ergonomic reasons use those adjustable laptops Stands, specifically, Cooler Master Ergo Stand III. Previously I used local ones for my previous laptop for over 4 years without any issue to my 5400 rpm HDD. But the 7200 rpm one in my current laptop is having issues, - sudden 100% use making task man, media players and explorer unresponsive even though it's not my boot drive, I tried to find out the process causing this but couldn't find it. - random dismounting of the HDD by the Intel Rapid Storage Technology Software that came with the Laptop that also, manages the OEM raid which is my boot drive, though I'm not sure if this is the software that manages this. Before all this, my brother's friend had a similar situation where one night he put his laptop in an inclined position and the next day the HDD died, though I'm not sure about the validity on that either. So can anyone help me out with this, why is this happening to my HDD? Is it dying? Any way to extend the life? Also, here's my sys info.
  4. What would you recommend as free diagnostic software? I tried to figure it out with Task Man and Resource Monitor but they were NOT showing which program/process was doing this.
  5. Hi, I'm using Win 10 Home x64, the latest (Non-Preview) version.About less than a week ago, while I was playing music while gaming in my primary Drive (OEM RAID 0 NVMe) the music player (VLC) became unresponsive.I tried to launch Task Man from the taskbar, it didn't even launch until the music started playing again. On the later occurrences of this problem, I saw from the Task Man already running that, somehow, my secondary drive was having 100% load, while couldn't find the program or services that was causing that in Task Man or Resource Monitor.I also realized that during this 100% load of my secondary drive, even programs that are installed in my primary drive like Explorer was also unresponsive or very slow. What I've tried :- Reset my PC- Disabled SysMain Service- Disabled Link State Power Management/Link Power ManagementI do not know what else is to try, can anyone help?
  6. My Predator 15 That supports GSync Enabled Monitors, NOT it's OWN-Native Monitor, reboots every time for NVdia drivers updates. This really inconvenient for me as I didn't have to face this problem as that Had Intel HD graphics enabled. I understand that the reinstallation process for NVdia drivers is usually is like this where the Intel HD graphics is disabled, but is there a way to bypass this restart process once every week to update the drivers?
  7. I want to change my shitty LITEON OEM raid 0 256GB SSD with a single FASTER & RELIABLE drive in my Predator 15 Laptop with same capacity or more. Use case : - As system & boot drive - Heavy Gaming & Productivity (From Programming, CAD to Photo & video editing) - Frequent Downloads ranging from relatively low file sizes to 60 - 80 GB+ - Need to be Fast & EVEN MORE SO, Reliable What would be the best Bang for the Buck NVME m.2 SSD under Such criteria?
  8. So what does these 100 - 100 mean? As you can guess, never used crystal disk info.
  9. *Sigh* I don't know man, I was thinking the same at first about longevity. But 1. It came with the Laptop, so I don't know if I couldn't do anything about it in the first place 2. I don't know if this Predator 15 supports NVMe m.2, 3. All the OEM software were in these drives put in a way that as long as I don't install a fresh copy of windows on it, their drives & other software would be there, even after resets. 4. I don't know what OEM Raid is, or how to undo it, or How do I copy all the data from such a drive to single bigger SSD as I was told by their customer service that some of the drivers which can't be found on their support website "MIGHT" be able to retrieve them after Calling the customer care & then them looking it up, if such drivers were available. Btw, it's 128X2, 256 GB in total, not 120.
  10. I bought this Predator 15 (Full Spec bellow) in April this year from NewEgg & have been a heavy user on it doing lots of Heavy Gaming & some productivity works. I ran the Crytal Disk Mark on the OEM RAID 0 SSD I use as my system, boot drive & Gaming & such. The SSD themselves are from Kingston while I saw in some sites their Predator 15 ones were from Samsung. Regardless, After I ran the benchmark multiple times using different sized files, I found that the write speed is about 30 - 40% of the read speed, except for 4K where it's the opposite (Given in the attached photos). Am I doing the Benchmark wrong? or Is it the same with all m.2 Kingston SSDs? or Have I ruined my SDDs? Spec : Predator 15 G9-593-765Q CPU : 7700HQ GPU : GTX 1070 RAM : 16GB DDR4 Storage : SSD : 2 X m.2 128 GB (256 GB in total) Kingston on OEM Raid 0 HDD : 1TB 7200rpm
  11. After fixing my laptop, realized the guys who "fixed it" messed up the thermal pads, including tearing, misplacement, dirt & so on. I put them back correctly as best as I could, but was thinking, should I change them? And if so, what is the thickness and is there any preferred brand or model of pads for gaming laptops? Specs : CPU : 7700HQ GPU : GTX 1070 RAM : 16 GB
