    I'm in desperate need of help with my laptop

    I use Liquidmetal for both cpu and gpu. You can reach thermal limits even with a fresh repaste, but if its the stock solution, you need to get some. I recommend a ONE AND DONE thermal paste. Its more tacky, performs identically as the best around, and i personally use it. its called prolimatech...

    I'm in desperate need of help with my laptop

    If gaming, lower cores 1-6 all to 40x. The use of additional cores(41-45x), during an already taxing workload(gaming), for background apps in the operating system background leads to unecessary stuttering, heat, and power draw. Spikes in frequency from 40x to 45x always stutters my system in...

    MS Has Bricked One of My Laptops

    there is a way to actually do it. it involves using a usb boot drive and replacing the welcoming login screen button that normally links to ease of access to CMD, allowing for you to reset your account password. You could always reinstall the OS. But I have done this fix successfully before...

    Undervolting i7-12700h laptop

    After updating to win 11, my max 17 - 9750h wouldnt undervolt via throttlestop nor bios, I would apply changes but the offset wouldnt get picked up by either throttlestop or hwinfo sensors even with stock bios undervolt. I had to search for core isolation in the search and disable it. then...

    [Help!] HDD usage stuck at 100%

    use latencymon program and find out what is causing the system latency lag issues too. If your laptop doesnt support uefi bios than DO NOT convert MBR TO GPT. IT WILL MAKE THE LAPTOP UNBOOBABLE. :eek:

    [Help!] HDD usage stuck at 100%

    The operating system win7/10/11 is tied to the laptop using a hardware code. If you install an ssd into your laptop, you dont need a software code to activate the new operating system. get a usb to sata data cable off amazon 1. Manaul way - FRESH install of Operating system-what id do format usb...

    [Help!] HDD usage stuck at 100%

    disabling wsearch may help, but isnt a permanent fix. Go ahead and shut off windows search/wsearch in services.msc and disable in startup and in recovery modes as well as stop the service. Im on win 11 now and cant do the rundown myself on win7/10. services.msc was one location, but theres also...

    Audio pops and stutters on my 5600x with msi mag b550 bazooka.

    I was running cortex and everytime it boosted and thereafter, critical realtek and modded drivers processes would change their cpu affinity to cores 0 and 1. It caused serious stutter and slow game performance. Wouldnt hurt to check cpu affinity on those audio processes.

    Warzone not reaching desired fps

    The newer motherboard vendor bios available for intel and AMD overclocking profiles I am not familiar with enough.. A good starting point is CPU core voltage. If you go to hwbot and select H20 water cooled system scores for the 3900x and go through the results of users validations, you will find...

    Warzone not reaching desired fps

    Your comparing apples to oranges. Every season of warzone's updates has had a diminishing return of fps. Full boost of a properly cooled O/C 3900x and OP would be lucky to gain 25fps. But it's possible that the Ryzen 3 might actually benefit greatly from a few hundred more millivolts. AMD ryzen...

    Warzone not reaching desired fps

    what we really need in order to help is a view of hwinfo - clock speeds power draw for both cpu and gpu. Run MSI afterburner and create an osd overlay so you can create a screenshot with all that info. GPU power draw, cpu power draw, cpu clocks speeds, gpu clock speeds, gpu voltage, ect while in...
