Clevo p150sm with 980gtx drawing too much power on battery?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I had pretty good success with my GPU upgrade a few months back, although at the same time I realised my battery was on it's last legs. I bought a replacement that I had to send back as it was faulty, but now I have got a working one and it's running very close to the edge in terms of power draw. If I run any heavy GPU benchmarks, or even max out the CPU for any length of time on battery it will just power off in an instant. It's doing this both on Windows and Linux (the latter with the nvidia card completely disabled).

I'm running Prema's Mods for both Bios and vBios. Is this something that other people have experienced? Shouldn't the power consumption be scaled back when running on battery just for this reason? Perhaps this is something the prema BIOS turns on/off, but I can't seem to find any other references to this.

Any ideas how to manage this? Thanks in advance,

Pete

Even on battery with dynamic mode selected on Clevo Control center, the power draw is too much for the battery: i've forgotten to plug the psu twice with my P150em (3920xm + 970m), i've ended the playtime twice with a sudden shutdown after few minutes and the most important, a battery very very very hot!

Don't play with your safety (and less important with your laptop), plug the beast when using power.

      My laptop's CPU is i7 4700MQ, iGPU is GMA HD 4600, and dGPU is NVIDIA GeForce GTX860m.
      Please send me a modified BIOS(.ROM) file with GMA HD 4600 disabled among the two graphics.

      Are there any unlocked A10 Bios for the AW m17x r2 other than the v1, and does the .v1 or other versions have support for installing the GTX 970M
