    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Nova bluetooth problems

    Just to update. PCS sent me a new bluetooth module when I messaged them (not through the RMA process). Fitted it over the weekend and so far seems to have cured the problem.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Nova bluetooth problems

    That's what I'm thinking, it being a dud. I've sent PCS a msg via the site as I don't have the time this week to sit on the phone getting through to support.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Nova bluetooth problems

    I'm not having any trouble connecting devices via Bluetooth when bluetooth is available for me to connect. I simply don't have the bluetooth function in my settings or devices most of the time. Sometimes it comes back when I reboot but that only works occasionally. My mouse is via 2.4ghz...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Nova bluetooth problems

    I've found the bluetooth module to be really flaky in the Nova. It's an intel unit. It randomly appears or disappears in settings within the notifcation bar. I've opened the laptop up and reseated the module but it's still the same. I've uninstalled and re-installed with latest drivers...

    If you're planning on buying something over £100, you may be eligible for this top up bonus. Extra £10 for £100 top up.

    Good spot with the IOPS. I wasn't that fussed with the DRAM as it wasn't going to be used as a boot drive.

    I had my eye on this 2tb SSD hoping it would be on Prime day deals. Under £135 for a well known brand isn't too bad.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Lag when Power cord isnt inserted?

    If it's on battery power I suspect it will most likely throttle back on power consumption by the CPU and GPU whatever power settings you and you will have to have to be plugged in to get the full performance. My old MSI with an 870m would not run the discrete Nvidia GPU and default to the...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Is the Nova 15.6" compatible with 3200 MHz memory?

    That's a really crappy situation. Hopefully you get things sorted out sooner than expected.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Help with new laptop specs please

    If you're happy with the laptop performance as is and you don't need portability maybe just buy and external monitor and keyboard and carry on using it till it dies? Certainly much cheaper than a new laptop.
