  1. I really wish I had someone like Louis Rossman near me. But the only place I can find a reliable person is 2000km away from me, in Bangalore. India lacks such repair services in general.
  2. I own a Predator Helios 300 (G3-572). I had a broken key on the laptop and wanted to fix it. I found out that the only official way to fix it is to replace the whole palm rest with the keyboard. I saved for 1yr to replace that as I'm a Computer Science Student and I often carry my laptop around for programming and other works and carrying an external keyboard along is not possible. While replacing the keyboard, I noticed a giant black spot near the GPU on the underside of the MoBo. Most probably a blown capacitor busting the power line to the GPU. When I talked to my local Acer Care, t
  3. I currently own a Predator Helios 300 (G3-572) and want to upgrade my primary SSD storage which I use as Windows installation (128GB) as I do a lot of programming, machine learning and gaming. Installing programs such as MATLAB on HDD makes it very slow to work on. According to this link, the M.2 slot supports Serial ATA/600 which as far as I remember, doesn't support NVMe drives. I need recommendations for 512GB/1TB drives in replacement of my current drive (KINGSTON RBUSNS8180DS3128GH).
  4. Should I OC my Predator Helios 300 laptop with 7700HQ and 1050Ti??

  6. I have a predator Helios 300 (g3 - 572) and accidentally broke the 'E' key. I did looked up the internet for replacement, but only one place had that, that too for $13.74 including shipping which would be way to expensive for me ATM. Is there any other replacement options? Any way to fix it? Note: The broken part is the underside clips of Key which attaches to the butterfly mechanism. Images attached below: (Believe me, it's cleaner than it looks)
  7. I'm looking for RAM for my Predator Helios 300, an 8GB DDR4 SoDIMM, but I'm confused with 200, 204 and 260 pins. Would it matter, if yes, what?
  8. Update: It ran for a moment with no screen, and now has no response to power button. Checked the pwer supply, it's not the issue. The red light thing with a second of startup happens every few minutes and goes away. Motherboard light is on
  9. It's a HP c7570 small computer, I replaced thermal compound and tried to boot it up again and it doesn't It shows this red light blinking on bulb symbol(image attached) and speaker makes a faint burp and cpu fan spins for a second. What went wrong idk, I didn't unplugged and wires for that matter too.
  10. I just asked Acer if I can replace my thermal compound and will it void the warranty, since it had the warranty sticker, not only they said go ahead, they sent in a guy for me to replace the compound so that if any srew up happens, it's on company and not me. FOR FREE!!

  11. Whenever I ordeer something from amazon India, they always pre cast teh delivery date and then later that day I get a text message that delivery was attempted and they were unable to contact me. It happened with me for the 3rd time now, the amazon support just says it'll be delivered and cut the call. I dont know what to do, they do say it'll be delivered the next day and it is but that always causes me inconvience as they never give me the contact of delivery boy or call me saying it'll not be delivered. This time I had a thermal paste coming in for the laptop and I had to cancel m
