  • ^luh, hopefully nakapag-backup ka muna bago mo iniwan yung laptop sa kanila.

    Hopefully may ibigay silang diagnosis kung bakit nagka problem yung SSD.
  • ^Ahahaha... Di nila alam i fix yung issue. Gusto ka lang gatasan nyang mga yan. Buti pa bro hanap ka na lang ng disassembly/teardown ng laptop model mo. Yung nabili kong 2nd hand ganyan din issue. Pag baklas ko eh basag na pala yung plastic na pinag ma mountan/hamba ng hinge. Ang ginawa ko eh ginamitan ko ng epoxy para re-enforcment na rin para di basta2 mabasag.


    under warranty pa paps, kaya dun ko dinala

  • ^a okay, sa pag-clone siguro.

    Sino pala nag transfer ng OS sa SSD, yung nagkabit or ikaw na?
  • ^ clean install yun ginawa ko dun di ako nag clone kaya nagtataka ako bakit nagka ganun
  • ^oh okay, so walang kasamang Windows OS yung laptop nung binili mo?

    Hopefully ma resolve nila yung issue.
  • ^ meron sya kasama w10, ginawa ko clean install sa ssd tapos reformat yung HDD na stock
  • ^hehe, additional work pala nangyari sa kanila ngayon since merong official na Windows OS yung laptop, kailangan nila mapagana yung OS dun sa bagong SSD :)

    Alam ko kase pag sa kanila ka nagpakabit ng SSD, clone lang gagawin nila para mabilis. Pero in your case since na-format mo na yung main HDD, not sure kung pano sila mag-clone :D

    Anyway, baka naman meron na silang makukunan ng stock HDD image for your laptop model since service center sila :)

    Or better yet, baka nandun pa yung recovery partition ng main HDD, they just have to initiate the recovery.

  • mas ok pa na clean install para ala bloatware eh hehe.. ok lang sila mag reformat basta yung lalagyan nila ng OS is yung SSD hindi dun sa HDD ang bagal eh saka dapat free of charge.
  • ^actually, kung merong additional charges, dapat sasabihan ka nila BEFORE gawin yung procedure. Since wala naman silang sinabi, I'm assuming na kasama na yun sa scope ng warranty :)
  • Paano po malaman kun built_in yun os, pagbili ko ng acer parang enactivate lang nila yun os.
    Walang sticker ng windows authenticity sa baba ng laptop. Wala din windows logo sticker sa keyboard panel.
    Nagtaka ako dahil pagkatapos ng activation meron agoda app.
    Parang medyo matagal ang tweak nila dahil sa " s apps".
  • ^Windows logos and stickers are throwbacks from the past and are no longer commonly found in laptops sold nowadays. Both my Dell XPS 13 and my friend's HP Envy 13 ultrabooks didn't have such stickers when we got them brand new. The only sticker that's commonly found is that of Intel, showing the processor and generation.

    To check the activation status of your laptop's Windows (I assume it's already Windows 10), just hit the Windows button+i to open the Settings page (or access it from the Start/Windows button), go to Update & Security, then click Activation. On my desktop, it looks like this:




    BTW, I dunno what process was done when you got your laptop but assuming it's brand new it should have come in a sealed box. Once you've bought it the box will be opened and the laptop turned on to show it working. Windows should NOT be set up yet and you'll have to go to the initial Windows setup steps (e.g. setting the region and time, putting a password, etc.) before you can access the desktop. If this isn't the case then it's suspicious.

  • Guys, meron ba dito naka Acer laptops? Specifically Predator Helios 300 and Nitro series, ano sa tingin niyo magandang kunin? Looking at the price it ranges from 50-75k and I might have a budget for that range. However, hindi ko naman ipapang high-end gaming yung bibilhin kong laptop, only for dev purposes and 3D production. So yung pinaka best sa mga series na yan is an overkill for me.

    Or if you guys have better options than Acer, pwede paki share hehe. Thanks!
  • Nag-iipon ako for a gaming laptop. My budget is roughly P90k. Ang balak kong specs:

    CPU: Intel Core i7-9750H
    GPU: RTX 2060
    STORAGE: 2 x NVMe SSD
    DISPLAY: 1080p, 144Hz, IPS

    Ang pinagpipilian ko:
    Sager NP8966
    Dell G7 15 7590
    Lenovo Y740 (15")

    Ayus na sana yung Sager NP8966. Perfect na sana para sa akin. Good price; tatlo pa ang storage. Kaya lang kahapon ko lang nalaman na importante pala yung Thunderbolt port. Dun pala kinakabit ang gaming box/eGPU.

    Walang Thunderbolt ang Sager NP8966, nor the Acer Helios 300. Yung Dell G7 at Lenovo Y740 naman, meron ngang Thunderbolt, pero 1xNVMe and 1xSATA 2.5" lang.
  • mga sir hihingi lang ako ng advice, if macbook air 2017 na bago or rog gaming laptop ung ka same pricr niya. mostly gagamitin for editing pero light lang naman.

  • normal po ba na ang 4.00GB na memory, pero nakalagay sa properties ng mycomputer ay 2.15GB usable lang?
  • @dayamos,

    Di kaya mainit yan? May desktop na akong mainit rin ang CPU eh. Wala lahat sa budget ko. Tsaka 17.3-inches sila. Bulky.

    NP9176-G1 - P114,500 <click here for link>
    NP9176-G2 - P135,000 <click here for link>
    NP9176-G3 - P161,200 <click here for link>
  • ^You can check Notebookcheck's review of Eurocom Sky X7C with similar Clevo chassis (Clevo P775TM1-G), pero eto naka i9-9900K and RTX2080. Para makita mo temps nya while being benchmarked :)
    <click here for link>

    Pero kung di talaga abot sa budget, marami namang mas cheaper gaming laptops na merong Thunderbolt port :)
