    I was the one who tried a 210w and 330w adapter with no luck. Same volts, just higher amperage.

    The adapter here works just fine for the GL502VS:...

    I would probably look at other machines if I were you, sadly. It sounds like this issue has been known for months (based on other, older threads) with no official response. As I mentioned earlier in...

    I've under-volted my CPU by about -125mv, but haven't tried the GPU. So far, under-volting the CPU has yielded no difference.

    Here's an example of my screen. It's more noticeable in this picture than it is in person.

    By exchanging it you may find one that has better light bleed. It really is a crapshoot with how laptops are assembled these days, it seems. When I get home I'll get a picture of mine so it can be...

    Mine is similar. It's backlight bleed, or at least that's what I was assuming. Definitely more noticeable with a black background.

    So, get this... Even with using my 330w adapter the battery is still draining while plugged in. I just don't understand. Maybe there is some sort of limitation on the actual power control unit in the...

    Somehow I didn't think about it until now, but I have a 330W adapter from my Alienware M18x R2 that I haven't sold yet. Looks like the adapter works, so I'm going to give that one a shot. Why not,...

    Ugh. Well, it seems that the 210w PSU I'm using doesn't do me much better. After 20 minutes of playing the Witcher 3, and having started with a 100% battery, I was down to 96%. I just don't get it.

    Turns out my adapter will be here Saturday and not tonight. Boo.

    As far as wattage is concerned, I suspect anything you can turn off/down would probably have a positive effect. I considered...

    Same issue here. Playing games like Witcher 3, SWTOR, Rust, etc. all cause battery drain - likely because the adapter can't sufficiently keep up with the draw. The adapter also gets quite hot due to...
