I had the same problem with a Lenovo combo jack. I am a court reporter and audio record with an external mic. I couldn't get a splitter to work (tried two). Finally I went to a USB mic and it works perfectly. Martel has a great one, 105 foot pickup range, but it's pricey at $300.

Well, I have the same problem, but the solution of Rob with the Power Options settings ("do nothing when closing the lid") does NOT Work on my win7 pro. In fact, it worked before, but all of a sudden it does not anymore. And whatever settings I choose in the power settings and reboot, it does not help. Anyone had this problem too? thanks in advance!

These temperatures are common for your laptop, and given that gaming is an intensive task for any machine, it is normal that the temperature rises. Although there is nothing more to say and it has been said in the comments too, I've posted this as an answer, so you can mark this question as answered.

Answering my own question. I believe I have found a solution. It is either a combination of both a/b or just one of them: a. Set the external monitor to Extend Desktop. This is easier said then done because the selection is not available until monitor is plugged in and the driver remembers the setting by monitor. The screen will went blank shortly afterward ...

This is most often the cause of a loose or damaged connection between the LED screen and the motherboard. If you are able to connect to an external monitor, or if you hear the Windows chime on startup, then there is likely no serious damage to your motherboard. Make sure when connecting the monitor that you connect before turning the laptop on, and after a ...

The most heat-sensitive element of a laptop is the battery. Li-ion and Li-po batteries are not supposed to get hotter than 45 °C (113 F), as per wikipedia. Above 60 °C (or 140 F), irreversible chemical reactions start inside the battery, quickly reducing its lifespan. High temperature also contributes to thermal decay of all materials, although at a slower ...

This replacement adapter should work in practice. The difference in current is less than 10%, and any decent power adapter has a safety margin on the specified maximum load. However, you must understand that you're going over the spec when you're using it, so you're playing with fire here. An overcharged adapter can overheat and start a fire in your home (a ...

Amperage is what the laptop "pulls" from the AC adapter. If the laptop is rated as 1.6 amps, that is the max it will pull from the adapter under its heaviest load. Using an adapter that is rated lower (1.5) than the laptop can work. The only caution is that under full load the laptop will want more amps than the adapter can provide. This may cause the ...

The issue with fluctuating utility or generator power is mainly brownouts (low voltage). This carries two kinds of risks. Running for prolonged periods at very reduced voltage can stress components, and if the voltage drops low enough, equipment can shut down. The result would be loss or corruption of files and corruption of the hard drive. To assess the ...

I had the exact same problem as posted above. I tried pressing the power button with no battery, 10 times, 30 seconds etc but no luck. I then removed the DVD drive (still no luck) and then finally the hard drive, and that kind of worked.. It's booting now, but without HDD. If I insert that, it's back to "not powering on". I'll try replacing the HDD - ...

It was my memory card reader(even though it actually had no memory card inside it) that I had plugged in that was the culprit, after simply removing it sleep time returned to normal. So you might wanna check anything attached to the ports on your laptop!

Here's my professional opinion, especially since I've had a bit of experience with this model. The issue is likely hardware, I'd bet money on it.

Yes, the driver that you install has configurations for the function keys.

The answer is: It depends. If your motor is drawing considerably more than 500 mA at 5 V, you might damage your USB voltage regulators. Do not attempt to connect USB ports in series to get 10 V. Doing so will short-circuit the USB port. Of course, it’s yet another question whether the motor actually does what it’s supposed to do if provided with only 5 V.


1

This will not impact your laptop though obviously you are draining the battery slightly faster if not on mains. Over time, the motor may suffer slightly as it will be running at 5v instead of 10v & running motors below rated voltage can cause heating issues. But I really doubt this is going to have any noticeable impact in this case, that really applies ...

Depends a lot on the kitchen, but off the top of my head are: - Spills - Grease - Central point for bacteria transfers Spills should be self-explanatory. Avoid it, that's it. If my kitchen is an indication, your laptop might build up grease, as it passes the kitchen air inside it. However, I'm sure your kitchen is a lot better ventilated than my ...

First, diagnose which component. Method 1: Remove the hard drive. Power on the laptop. Do you hear the sound? Method 2: Use diagnostics software (often provided by the manufacturer) to stress the CPU or HDD, which may trigger the sound. Second, replace the component. Manufacturer's support sites sometimes provide documentation to replace certain ...

If your chipset allows 8GB RAM, and you have a 32bit Windows, you will see only the part of RAM that OS can handle (usually 3.5-4GB). If you want to use the the OS-inaccessible RAM you may still create a ramdisk there (and e.g. put a pagefile on it). I used "Gavotte ramdisk" for that.

According to Intel, the chipset (Intel GM45) of your laptop supports up to 8GB RAM. Max Memory Size (dependent on memory type) 8 GB So you can try to insert 2 * 4GB modules and install a 64Bit Windows.

Strange, it seems it does stay powered after all, but the particular device I had plugged in just had to be unplugged and replugged (while suspended) in order for it to continue charging. More of an issue with the device I had plugged in and not Ubuntu or the laptop then. Thought I'll mention this here in-case someone asks the same question in future.

Yes, it can work if the motherboard supports PC3-10600 modules. Check it with motherboard manual or manufacturer site. Theoretically, it should work. Because both support (8-8-8, 9-9-9, 10-10-10) timings Timings (CL-tRCD-tRP). However, the overall memory will run at the lowest speed among the memory modules, in which case 1333.3 (MT/s). Ref: ...

Yes, you can do this. The memory speed quoted is the fastest that it can run at. When paired with slower memory it will run at the lower speed.

I don't think I've ever seen a laptop with a 3.5" drive bay, but here's confirmation anyway. This site lists the GT70 as using an HGST Travelstar. They are 2.5" drives. Any 2.5" drive will fit this laptop. Enjoy. http://www.notebookcheck.net/Review-MSI-GT70-2PE-890US-Gaming-Notebook.115293.0.html

I figured out a small work around - I can use the dock as long as I don't plug in the power adapter. I plug the power adapter into the laptop itself and can use the dock without issues.

This is effectively impossible for several reasons. First and foremost is the fact that your mobile phone processor and laptop processor have almost nothing in common. They are completely different architectures and are not code compatible. Any code you want to run on one will not be able to run the other without a lot of work. The assumption that your ...

Actually, it's possible if you have a build server:-) The best way is installing a full linux environment in android. An app named complete linux installer can do this(root).

Probably a displayport daisychain, since with displayport the signal processing chips are on the monitor side which lets you get around the usual "two display limit" imposed by even high-end GPUs (even a GTX 980 has only two RAMDACs). There is no way I'm aware of that would allow him to do this with HDMI. ED: And those adapters / splitters are used for ...

Depending on your laptop's ventilation solution, it might not actually be designed to operate at load with the lid closed. I know that some of the big, bulky Asus laptops require the lid open for full ventilation. An alternative, if closing the lid w/ power options as Jeff advised sends your temps through the roof is to simply use the windows+P shortcut to ...

Short answer is: yes, you can use RAM from two different vendors in your system. You have to make sure they have similar parameters before you buy, though. Fortunately for you they have. It's still not a guarantee they will work, but two mainstream manufacturers should not give grief to one another.

Today I received my new fan and replaced it with the old one. All the problem is gone. I guess the old fan was functioning but not enough to cool or had problem with the temperature feedback.

It sounds like the laser can't focus and more often than not that's due to dust covering the lens. Some drives make a clicking noise when trying to focus the lens, listen for it, it may be faint.

I suspect the movement slowdown and high temps are two separate issues. First things first, have you checked that you're not running anything which eats up CPU or GPU cycles? Bitcoin miner malwares come to mind. This may be unlikely but movement induced slowdown could be a safety mechanism to protect HDD. I don't have the laptop in question but my old ...

The reason for the slowdowns you experienced was almost certainly the CPU throttling itself because it's too hot. Since it's running faster now without the fan, the temperature should be lower than it was having the broken fan. So running it without fan should be less damaging than what it endured for several months. 70 C is a bit warm, especially for an ...

It can operate without fan. The CPU gets to hot and throttles down, or The CPU gets too hot, it asserts PROCHOT to the motherboard and the CPU shuts down completely.

It can operate w/o fan, but it will start to smoke within minutes and it will be fried. It will also shut down without warning.

Batteries are strange (and complicated) things. They have more capacity when warmer, because the chemical processes are more efficient. So, if the battery was measured while the machine was ON, then it has more capacity than the next day, when the battery cools off. Also, the microprocessor in the battery pack estimates the capacity by temperature and ...
