  1. I've got a Lenovo, though my work laptop is a Dell and I may run into a similar issue whenever I finally decide that I'm tired of looking at a 12" screen while working and plug it in to my existing setup... I'll definitely give that a shot if I run into issues with it.
  2. Hey there @cr8tor My problem is actually the OPPOSITE of that. My external is my main monitor, has all the windows on it and everything is A-OK. If I close the laptop and then open it, all of the windows suddenly move to the laptop, despite the external being the primary still. My best guess as to why is that switching from 144hz to 120hz took longer than it took for the laptop to make itself presentable, so Windows decided to move everything to the laptop instead. Once I set it so that "Mirror These Displays/Extend These Displays" had 144hz as well as "Second Scre
  3. So, this isn't truly a troubleshooting thread: I've already figured it out. HOWEVER, I did not find a single thread anywhere on google that described the problem I was having accurately, so I figured I'd throw the information out there. The problem: Whenever I close and subsequently open my laptop lid, the secondary/external monitor would flash and all windows would move to the laptop monitor. The solution: My refresh rate on my secondary monitor was set differently for the "Extend these displays" mode and "Second screen only" (or "mi
  4. This would primarily be used as a game drive. She's been complaining about games taking a very long time to load, some heavily compressed games take several hours to download compared to 20 minutes on my computer, etc. When you say free buffer - she isn't the best at managing her data, and only notices when something tells her she doesn't have room for an install. Should I just partition away 5-10% to help with this or leave it as is?
  5. Hey guys, I remember reading/hearing a while back that SSDs shouldn't be filled to more than 50-60% of their maximum load if you care about speed and reliability. The logic behind this was something along the lines of: TLC will use some percentage of leftover space as DLC for writes, which allows it to perform much faster. If a drive is full or near full, it has a much smaller amount of cache to work with, so it can't perform as well. This also would have an effect on endurance because it would only have some small percentage available to write to, leading to multiple w
