Hi, so I bought a used Multicom P17SM (Clevo PS17SM is the original I think) and I'm having quite strange problems. So at first laptop had problems with overheating, I took it apart, cleaned it and changed the thermal paste. I tested the GPU on Unigine Heaven and temperatures dropped from 90+ celsius to about 70-80 celsius. As laptop was with Windows 7, I installed Windows 10 and did more testing and some interesting problems occured.
The touchpad driver is causing strange lag. The usage isn't getting any higher with it, but the keyboard has this really long delay and sometimes it seems that it just stops working and some programs they fell like they froze but they aren't frozen, I don't even know how to explain. But when I end the process of the driver in the Task Manager, everything goes back to normal;
- The GPU temperature sensor doesn't work properly, it doesn't show it's temperature until the GPU gets some workload. Same was on Windows 7;
- The CPU fan seems to be misbehaving, SpeedFan shows that the CPU fan is at 50k+ rpm but I can't hear it at all and when I do a Prime95 test the GPU fan spins up for some reason? And I think that might be the reason why the CPU still overheats a bit, because the temperatures while doing the test go up to about 85-91 celsius;
