I have a Clevo P370EM3 laptop with a pair of GTX 680Ms in SLI mode and have never been able to get Linux to work properly with full acceleration and without tearing. I have tried every xorg config I can find, and even all the modifications from the nvidia configurator to no avail. Has anyone been able to get these things to work 100% in Linux? I have typically used ubuntu based distros, including Mint, and every available driver version from the repositories, but can never get it to work quite right.
Thanks for any help anyone can provide. It is killing me to run Windows on this machine because of these issues, and I am almost to the point of installing the inferior 7970 cards.
Have a great day
When my first CPU fan on Y500 is broke i replaced it on something compatible (non-original) and planned to replace it later on original. Since that time happened a lot things, but i still using that non-original fan. But i did some research and here is what i founded:
1. Forcecon (marked as FCN on fan)
DFS5413005MH0T-FC1C (5V - 0.5A)
Spotted in: Y400, Y500.
2. Asia Vital Components (marked as AVC on fan)
BNTA0612R5H-P007 (5V - 0.5A)
Spotted in: Y410p, Y500, Y510p.
3. Sunon (marked as SUNON MagLev on fan)
MG60120V1-C230-S99 (5V - 2.25W (0.45A))
Spotted in: Y410p, Y500.
So, which to choose? Any recomendation? Maybe there also unexpected way (completely diffirent fan from another company for another laptop)?
Hello guys ...
i wanna make sure that everything is going to work fine with my laptop so i got some questions
First of all my laptop is Lenovo Z51-70
CPU: I5-5200U 2.2ghz
iGPU Intel HD 5500
dGPU:AMD R9 M375
Ram: 8GB (will raise it to 16GB)
HDD: 1TB stock one
SSD: 120GB (for my games and windows only)
now i investigated a little about eGPUs and found that i need a M.2 or thunderbolt, i've found that my wifi card use a M.2 a/e key aka ngff, so i will be using the GDC Beast NGFF version
to the bad part / question part
What do i need to know other than the stuff above?
what is the white-listing thing? i found on support forums that my laptop support some wifi cards only and it's bios cann't be modified according to bios modifying forums (not here)
in same time saw some posts on reddit that says if ur bios have UMA graphic option then you will need to disable PAX / WIRELESS and enable UMA and it will work fine, the question is that true?
i wasn't able to find anyone who did it on Z51-70 i found only 1 post on reddit for Z41-70 (which after research found that both are using same M.2 a/e key slot and also same bios... but the one who posted only replied that it's recognized with some errors and never replied back with any updates so still not sure about it.....
