    Dell G3 Speedstep not working?


    The core clock frequencies and voltage on my Dell G3 are locked at full speed and max voltage. Speed Step/C-States are enabled in the BIOS, I'm using the balanced power plan in Windows (min CPU 5%, max CPU 100%) and there is no abnormally high CPU load. I'm confused... *Confused

    Edit: The power cord plugged in was keeping the clocks at full speed. There must be some Dell specific power settings I'm missing.

    :)

    Dell G3 15" Laptop won't turn on!

    I just received my dell G3, turned it on, prompt to windows 10 set up with crotana. 5 minutes later it crashed on me. (it was plugged in)

    Tried turning it on multiple times, loaded up once for 1 minute, crashed again.

    Keyboard backlight would blink when attempted to power on, but does not turn on anymore despite many attempts.

    Battery is internal. I'm stumped.

    What could be the problem here? Any troubleshooting suggestions?

    The tutorials provided are just a list of troubleshooting steps. Use only the steps which apply to you.

    Since none of the troubleshooting steps here worked, I'd suggest you do a Clean install.

    Dell G3 5379 NVMe SSD Support?


    What kind of M.2 do I have? NVMe vs SATA? That is the question here!

    Hi!

    I have this notebook: Dell G3 5379

    and want to get a fast SSD Drive. Will this one fit?

    I'm unsure about NVMe support. I'm familiar with traditional 2.5" SATA drives and M.2 SATA drives. But never had an NVMe SSD drive.

    So will this work? From the LOOKS it seems an NVMe compatible port on the motherboard, but I'm not sure. Can you tell?

    From the specs, it seems it has PCIe SSD support. Does that mean this drive is a go?
