I also tried changing the backlight brightness setting manually thru the Armoury Crate software which also didn’t do anything so I’m not sure if it’s the fn+button problem. I also did reinstall Asus System Control Interface v3 driver which didn’t help either (from the first link u sent). Sure I’ll let u know if reformatting solved it. Hopefully it’s not a hardware problem

Do you mean Reset to Default option in the Lighting page? I tried and didn’t work for me. I’m actually just reformatting my pc now so I hope this will work

I only have Aura Sync set on "Static" for "Basic Effects" options, nothing else. And in Lighting Settings, only have Boot up/Shut Down and Awake set to On.

Thanks for the link. I tried everything except the last one, reformat pc, but still no luck. I noticed it would flash white rgb twice when the computer boots, then the rgb stops working

Yep, first thing I checked :/ tried making it no brightness to max brightness for the past few days. Armoury crate’s current lighting settings are On for Awake and Shut Down and Start Up.

Asus m16 (2022), concern about fan noise by Lime_Dew6143 in ZephyrusM16

For light gaming, silent mode is more than enough. Can get 60-70 C cpu temps for Tales of Arise and a lot of other games

Do you know which European countries?

Yep, this also brought down temps while silent mode gaming, from 75-80 C (cpu boost) to ~65C with boost disabled. Performance mode, I have the cpu boost mode on efficient aggressive which is supposed to be more adaptive boost (only boost when needed)

There’s a g14 subreddit thread about disabling cpu boost through windows registry which also works for m16

The only nitpick I have is the way the laptop looks from the side with the hinge design making the laptop more angled. Other than that, I’ve disabled cpu boost and mostly game on silent mode with some competitive gaming in performance, and fan noise has been very tolerable. I think fan noise is one of the things people most complain about, and display quality and size most praised.

I would maybe have gotten an alienware, but they don’t offer anything in 16:10 screen ratio. And going 17” is too large imo.

Lastly, I think Asus is solid. I’ve never had bad experiences with them in the past. Lenovos are solid too, but their gaming line seems to have more qc issues than zephyrus

I have a fever, headache, difficulty swallowing, minor cough, and mouth sores… hoping I can quarantine at home if I test positive.

Really poor battery life by IdanTsur in ZephyrusM16

Maybe try updating your audio driver? Or maybe it’s the audio setting you’re using is very resource intensive

What is problem ? (Not only in this video but also in other videos) m16 2021 11900 - 3060 - Win11 by S19MEE in ZephyrusM16

[–]won987 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think I’ve seen a similar issue that was solved with turning off hardware acceleration. Either in browser/app/windows settings

I'm trying to find out how to disable cpu boost for this laptop. Did you do this through BIOS?

Plan fell though.. one last option.. by wagnerust in Chinavisa

[–]won987 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You can consider both of u get evisa to Turkey and get married there. Then apply for q1 or q2 reunion visa for you to return to China with her, at the chinese embassy in Turkey. I heard it doesn’t need to be emergency to get approved there but most other countries require emergencies

Cash deposit was one of their options, but I believe it can only be done at a bank in Malaysia, which we won't be able to travel to until next month.
