    Before wasting your time modding the back cover, run some tests without the cover on and see if there's any improvement. For me, the difference was negligible but results may vary. In my case that...

    A real power user wouldn't hesitate to tweak some stuff to get rid of the telemetry or whatever else you may dislike about it.
    Truth is, people hate upgrading. People hate going out of their comfort...

    Why exactly are you going through all that trouble to run W8.1?

    LOL you did it a knife? Damn good job man! I don't think I could do it. Patience is definitely a virtue! Good to know you're back in business.

    That's "normal". RMA ain't gonna fix it. They all came out of the factory like this.

    Put some masking tape around the screw to protect the electronics from metal particles and cut a slot on it using a dremel. Easy fix.

    The key is in the bios, don't worry about it. Download the ISO from MS website and install it. It will automatically install the correct version according to the key.

    They usually test the battery life using pcmark. It's just a "synthetic battery benchmark" or whatever you wanna call it. I don't trust it. I would say 2hrs would be a more realistic number and I'm...

    Those are best case scenarios. Minimum brightness, no kb backlight, idling, battery saver mode, no usb devices connected, hard drive turned off, no wifi, etc. I really doubt a gaming laptop with a...

    If heat alone killed batteries, mine should be dead long ago. I game every single day and they're good just like when they were new, two years ago. I cycle them at least once a week.

    Show me a gaming laptop that runs cool.
    Also, that's not caused by the heat. Heat can slowly kill batteries, but it will not make them bulge... Well, unless you throw them in the fire.
    That's...

    Mine is a VSK but it says GL502V on the box. The sticker on the back cover says GL502V and GL502VS. Go figure...

    Yes, it makes sense. Like I said, bad fan, wires or connector. Replacing the motherboard has same as unplugging and plugging them back in, in this case. It is indeed a hardware issue. The fan is part...

    Run CPUz, go to the "motherboard" tab and check the model.
    What GPU does it have?

    I would just replace the whole thing, unless I had a good connector laying around.
  19. So, what makes you think this is a problem with...

    So, what makes you think this is a problem with the keyboard drivers or the laptop itself? I'm just trying to understand your thought process. Does it happens when using other programs or games?

    Based on years of experience fixing laptops. Should be an easy fix but most people want to fix it without even opening the back cover. Not gonna happen. Disconnecting the fans will do the trick for a...
  21. Bad connection on the fan's signal wire.

    Bad connection on the fan's signal wire.

    The battery is covered by the warranty, for 1 year. Fair enough, since the battery can die prematurely depending on how it's used.
    You can find one on amazon or ebay for around $45. Replace it...

    Not really. And they can't provide you any more info than that even if you call them, email or whatever. In other words, don't update it, unless you have a serious problem that could be fixed by a...

    Take it apart and try to figure out where exactly it is shorting. Shouldn't be too hard. It's probably the keyboard's aluminum backplate. Fix it as soon as you can because if you keep doing it will...

    Sticky vape chemical substance on the heatsink fins will definitely make it overheat. It acts as an insulator.

    Take it apart, clean it up, apply new thermal paste and you're good to go.
