Acer G73jh Windows 10 Notes

I sold this laptop but this post still might help. Turns out the motherboard supposedly had a hairline crack in it.

Windows 10 ATK Version.

Then do the regedit:

Acer Nitro 5 BSOD Notes.

Sloppy notes:

515-42 model, RX 560X and Ryzen 5.

Following instructions here. https://community.amd.com/docs/DOC-1641

I noted that Visual C++ had installed a 2015 and 2017 version on my laptop but the MS download page says 2015-2019 share the same distributable so I wonder if that was the issue.

After uninstalling and reinstalling those I ended up with 2005 version 4, 2012 x64/x86 and the 2017 x64/x86.

Links for 2005 and 2012 IIRC I had to google for.

Latest attempt: GPU scaling on.

It black screen flashes (Windows driver restart due to non responsiveness) too.

Furmark, Memtest, etc. have revealed no artifacts/memory issues yet. What's weird is it doesn't do it in games at higher temps so I'm hoping it's a windows GUI issue which is where it happens...usually just while using chrome...

BSOD changed from

Video TDR Failure (atikmpag.sys)

(IIRC) to a different issue after the instructions at https://community.amd.com/docs/DOC-1641 and since then I turned on GPU scaling...
