  1. Hello, I recently purchased and set up a new Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 3, (20TK001FUS) and the battery life has been awful. I had a ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 2 previously, and the battery life was around 6-7 hours on average. With my new laptop I get around 2-3 hours on average. I had to completely reinstall Windows 10 right from the start in order to get my upgrade to Windows 10 Pro working. I am currently running version 2004. I normally prefer the Windows power slider (Lenovo Intelligent Cooling) to be in the middle (Better Performance) while plugged in, and just left of center (Better Battery) when unplugged. Both sfc /scannow and DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth found nothing wrong. Windows is completely up to date, there are no new Lenovo Vantage updates available, and every possible driver and piece of firmware I can think of is up to date. Since Microsoft removed some of the Advanced Power Settings, I manually added back in the option and lowered the percentages for Maximum Processor State. I would have undervolted the CPU, but this series of processor has been locked by Intel. Both the Intel and Nvidia control panel settings are set for best battery performance. I have disabled and reenabled the Nvidia GPU in Device Manager. Could this be an issue with the battery itself or some other hardware problem? The laptop appears to be in perfect physical and operational condition except for the poor battery life. My usage of the laptop has not differed in any particular way from before. What am I missing? Any suggestions for possible fixes is greatly appreciated. Thank you
  2. Hello, Is the ASUS ROG Strix XG32VQ monitor G-SYNC compatible? If so, does the G-SYNC functionality work correctly/well? Thank You
  3. Hello, I have an ASUS ROG GU502GV and the pop-ups that come up when changing fan profiles and AURA lighting no longer show when using the keyboard shortcuts. I have tried completely uninstalling (with Revo Uninstaller) Armoury crate and ROGLiveService; I then reinstalled them following the instructions shown here: https://www.asus.com/us/support/FAQ/1037674/. I just like having those pop-ups as it lets me know which profile I have switched to when Armoury Crate isn't open. Any ideas or troubleshooting tips would be appreciated. Thank You
  4. I already have a dedicated desktop computer. That being said most of my work these days has to be done while I am on the go. Hence the need for something portable and powerful. I do a lot of work with the Adobe and Autodesk suites and when it comes to games I like playing TF2, LOL, Borderlands, Far Cry, Battlefield, Witcher, etc.
  5. Hello, I am looking for a new laptop and recently I have been looking at Lenovo laptops in particular. I need a laptop that works both as a gaming machine and as a workstation. I like what Lenovo offers as far as their Thinkpad line (design, features, etc.); that being said I don't know how well these devices will stack up as gaming machines. Are there any Lenovo laptops in their Thinkpad line that would be sufficient for gaming (performance comparable to an RTX 2060 or GTX 1070)? Thank You
  6. The budget max is $2000 and a minimum spec of RTX 2060/GTX 1070.
  7. Hello, Does anybody have any recommendations for a current or next gen 15" or 17" gaming laptop that still has a numpad? Thanks
  8. Hello, Recently my driver update software updated my wireless network adapter driver to "Intel Wireless-AC 9560 160 MHz," and ever since my internet access through WiFi has been slow, and each time I turn the laptop on it forgets the wireless network. For whatever reason the driver data was removed so I can't roll it back to "Intel Wireless-AC 9560" through the device manager. Does anybody have a clue how to fix this? Windows update and Intel PROset Wireless/Software and Drivers seem to just continually reinstall the (I'm assuming corrupt) "Intel Wireless-AC 9560 160 MHz" driver. I have been trying to find the old driver file or package so I change it back manually but I can't find it anywhere. Any help you can provide would be much appreciated. Thanks A lot
  9. Hello, I'm in the market for a new laptop and I decided on the ASUS Zephyrus S. However I was looking to grab the lower spec version with the GTX 1060 (GX531GM). However, I can't seem to find it anywhere. Has it released yet? Is it temporarily sold out? Any info you have would be appreciated. Thanks
  10. Hello, I have been looking for a new modem and router for my new residence. I am getting Xfinity 150 mbps download. I was thinking of purchasing the NETGEAR CM600 (24x8) DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem and the NETGEAR R6700 Nighthawk AC1750 Dual Band Smart WiFi Router. Are these products going to work well together? Is there going to be any substantial bottleneck anywhere? Will these products last fairly long? I do a lot of gaming on PC and will have people playing on Wifi, will these suffice? Will these be okay as far as ping and latency are concerned (yes, I know it has more to do with the connection rather than the products for ping)? Thanks for your help
  11. Hello, I was planning on purchasing a pair of Edifier R980T 4" Active Bookshelf Speakers and plugging them into my FiiO E10K USB DAC. My headphones are plugged into the primary 3.5 mm headphone jack and the speakers would be plugged into the secondary. Is there some way I could add an in-line on/off switch so I could turn them on/off without having to reach around in the back. The reason being is sometimes I want audio coming just through my headphones and not my speakers. Thank You
  12. Update: I tried creating custom profiles in RivaTuner so that it would work with the .exe files for the respective games. Unfortunately it didn't work. I also just updated my graphics driver.
