    I bought a new higher capacty battery but the voltage on the battery is 15.2V and on the existing battery is 11.4V. Is this the right battery? As you can see the old battery became puffy. No idea how that happened. https://www.replacement-batteries.co.uk/getac-laptop-battery/3687.html

    Hi There is a thread on another forum that relates to a bare bones models PCS is also selling, it has a lot of useful information. Am I allowed to put it in a post? I can't see anything in the rules explicitly disallowing it, it's not a competitor's forum.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST 15.6" Optimus VIII upgrade from Optimus V 0 manual required

    It's almost 3 years since I got my Optimus V and now it's time for an upgrade. I was waiting for a machine with the GTX1060 as the V has an GTX860m but I assume the GTX1050Ti will be more than adequate. I can't find a real review of the 1050Ti vs 1060 anywhere. I tried to find the manual on...

    I have an Optimus V and I've had a lot of problems with my Microsoft Sculpt Touch mouse disconnecting and then not reconnecting unless I reboot and then not always.

    I've been in India and Nepal for the past 2 months and both countries suffer regular power cuts. Whenever I'm playing a game, mainly PES2015, as soon as the power cuts the game slows as if it's switching to the Intel GPU. I can't find where to force the game to use the Nvidia GPU whether on...
