  1. Help deciding

    http://laptopmedia.com/laptop-specs/msi-gs63-stealth-8re/ whats your opinion? This seems like a good value option to me but what do you think?
  3. Help deciding

    just have to play the waiting game till they’re available in the UK, the MSI GS65 seems interesting too but I cannot find these being sold in the UK anywhere yet it’s quite annoying.

    I think I’ll probably go for the Zephyrus M tbh, now I just need to find where to get it in the UK and release info. Thanks for the help!

    How long till they’re available? And could you send me a link to some examples?

    Hello everyone and anyone! I’ve been a long time desktop user and haven’t really worried about getting a decent laptop till now. I’ve gotten a new job and will be moving to a home with less space, unfortunately not enough space for my computer. So my GF will be taking care of my PC till she can eventually join me later in the year. Anyway, point is, I am in the market for a new gaming laptop and while I have been looking around a little, I have not decided yet and would like some ideas from you. Before I list some preferences it’s worth saying that the place I’ll be going to provide a discount on Dell hardware, but I’m not overly struck on the big clunky aesthetics. I am looking to spend around £1800 GBP for ideally a gaming laptop with portability in mind. This has made me think of the Razer blades but I’m not 100% sold on them and want to know my options first. I’m not overly fussed on the specs but I like to futureproof a little, (which is difficult with no upgradability normally) and for the money and gaming it should have in the region of: Atleast i5 but really should be an i7 for the money atleast 16GB of RAM GTX 1060 minimum 500GB storage minimum (PCIE minimum but M.2 probably ideal), ideally 1TB. Also to consider: Touchscreen, 2 in 1 functionality and decent webcam are all pluses. Portability, I don’t want a laptop with bigger radiators than my car. So what would you recommend? Thanks in advance! Rob
  7. BSOD issue, multiple error codes.

    Maybe try to RMA on manufacturers warranty. My problem isn't booting the OS its BSOD. I have taken some screenshots of the SMART information of my drives & loaded optimized defaults to see if that maybe the issue. Can someone who knows SMART take a look at these and let me know. According to CrystalDiskInfo all drives are good with one being at 94%
  8. BSOD issue, multiple error codes.

    think I can rule out the RAM being an issue, I'll continue to troubleshoot.
  9. Hi, I’m getting BSODs lately and I am trying to troubleshoot the issue. I cannot seem to find a fix though and it seems there are different error codes every time. I’ve tried all sorts and I still cannot seem to find a fix for the issue, please help if you can. So one reoccuring error code is DRIVER IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL another is Stop code: SYSTEM SERVICE EXCEPTION What failed NTFS.sys Yesterday I had Microsoft support on the phone to try and help with an issue I had while troubleshooting (SFC and DISM were not working) and they decided to use the Windows.iso to try and fix this issue. I guess this did not work. I have tried to take pictures of the stop codes everytime this has happened, I realise its a little unorthadox but I have put them in an album for you to look over. I would add .dmp files but I’m not 100% where they are, I’ll try and do that as an edit. Thanks in advance.
  10. BSOD Issues

    Hello everyone, I am writing this post today in a hope that someone can help me fix a fault that I have had now for a little while. I have an issue with random BSOD's and I cannot work out why! They happen at different times under different situations and I am hoping someone could read the logs better than I can to at least point me in the right direction. When they do happen it does seem to be during playing games, yesterday the system BSOD'd 3 times during stronghold 2 steam edition (hardly a taxing game). Here are the logs from reliability monitor. I have also attached a saved copy of my reliability history, in case that can help you diagnose the issue. I have just done a deep scan of my PC using AVG and found about 4 issues so I'm not sure whether that may be a joint cause but I doubt it was. Zues_12.10.17_reliabilityhistory.XML

  13. Boot problems

    I have tried to troubleshoot what I can and here is a video update on the progress: https://youtu.be/3MKNEsPiY9M I tried this and I don't think it helped unfortunately. I have checked that fast boot is enabled (it always has been), couldn't find the extra checks options though unfortunately. and changed some of the boot options. Before all my drives where in the boot options, now only my OS drive is the boot option. I also just checked the ASUS website to see if there is a new BIOS, there isn't, I have the current version at 3007 For the record, the boot time has reduced to about 1-2 minutes rather than 4-5 minutes but it's still pretty bad.
