Re: HP Pavilion G6 20xx/22xx/23xxAX - powered by Trinity

Guys, It's been a long time since I posted but I bought a hp g6-2201ax back in jan 2013....one month before the a10 released...the point is, I am trying to overclock the laptop, for boredom reasons (my brother nearly overclocked his brazos e-350)...so any advice on this front? my internet is actually horrible else i would search all 63 pages one by one...i have played almost all latest games...dmc, tomb raider etc...unfortunately not crysis 3 and far cry 3...i hear now that i could experience a little lag...hence the request...i have windows 8 btw...

Crysis 3:
Its better with crossfire or not?

Re: HP Pavilion G6 vs Lenovo Essential G505s

^ I dont think overclocking a lap and moreover a HP one is a good idea unless you can cool it really really well. Or not play heavy games.
Far Cry 3 works on my lap with HD7670M on medium with maybe some lag while driving quickly(or maybe i'm a real terrible driver). No noticeable lag while driving normally , so I should be a terrible driver :(.
Havent tried Crysis 3.

Better in terms of CPU & RAM
Very poor in terms of GFX
Oh ok, it's an avoid then. Ty.

Actually when you put it like that, I realise that my laptop already heats up a lot during even smaller games like Sniper Elite v2...the area actually almost causes boils to touch...So, overclocking is probably out of the question...:cry:

Does anybody have stats of Crysis 3 on this laptop in actual usage?? I am going to get it really soon and would be happy to know if I can play it at all....

Well it was smooth enough in mine. /In fact better than far cry 3.

Yup you are correct.. After i turned down dual GFX I could play Bioshock @ med , MP3 @ high settings (Cursing myself for not finding this solution earlier.. :-X)

i also face similar overheating problems..Its due to dust accumulating inside..The laptop is a dust magnet.Better get it serviced.

i was able to play Crysis 3 at medium settings without any lags..

Actually, is getting dust removed under the free service under warranty? Also, how long will this laptop be relevant for gaming?? I'm getting a little depressed after seeing the new Lenovo Z500 with the GT 740m...Still I HAVE used it for 6 months and more without any problem as yet...Still proud!!!:lol:

Fix overheating problems

I used to have overheating problems and it used to hibernate after 10mins of gameplay. I cleaned the fan myself, reapplied the thermal paste and it is working fine now. You could go to a service center for this but that's not how we do things at thinkdigit, right? :wink:

So I made a laptop maintenance cum dis-assembly video which will apply to all new models of HP Pavillion G-Series and even other latops:

I need to buy a small sized laptop / netbook.

Less than 12 inches. 22K budget.

Any suggestions?

Anti-reflective screen is must.

To reduce heat in my G6 2005, i took my vacuum cleaner, put it to max, and blew it right in my fan. huehuehuehue

I read a few pages from the thread and saw a lot of negative comments, people facing many issues like BIOS failure, overheating, low battery life etc. Should I buy this laptop?
I am about to order G6-2312AX from Flipkart. I tried looking at various options and no laptop comes even close to this one at this price. But the negative reviews are really causing me to give a second thought.
Any other good options around 40k?

-------------------------------------------------

Kolkata's Chandni seems to have run out of good products. I had to enquire in 4-5 shops just to find a Class 10 Micro SD card.

And the laptops they are showing, i3s and DOS laptops are reaching 45k.

and this is how they talk:

Shopkeeper: core i5 3rd generation hai, 4 GB RAM hai aur 1GB graphics card hai
Me: Kaun sa graphics card hai?
Shopkeeper: 1GB
Me: Kaun sa model?
Shopkeeper: Radeon
Me: Model model, 7650, 7670
Shopkeeper: 8630 hai

Then he immediately lost interest in my buying needs and moved to another customer. I suppose I was too knowledgeable for his taste.

Got the Laptop (G6-2312AX) from Flipkart day before yesterday for 38604 with free logitech wireless mouse. Haven't used much yet, still in the process of installing programs and copying files from home PC.
The build quality seems solid though. And the weight is definitely less than a similar specced Sony VAIO. Looking good so far. I hate the glossy screen though. A little compromise for a decent config I guess.

2.7 ghz is certainly strange. A8-4500 supports a max clock of 2.4ghz.

No, it occasionally go up to 2.8ghz when needed, but its momentary.

Good choice, but do add another 4gb ram to get the best out of it.

Actually, I would love to follow that, but I think it's safer to let the warranty get over first...still 4 months left on mine...

I called HP care and they gave a service center ID. However, when I went there, they flatly refused to take it in just for cleaning and started playing the games on my laptop for "checking heating problems" right in front of me...Then they said that it would take 3-4 days in their center to clean up and give a performance and hardware check for the laptop...

Now I just have to call them and demand on-site cleaning...
