MSI GE620DX Driver Updates
« on: 13-January-12, 22:38:49 »

Hi MSI community.

I purchased my first ever MSI product today, a MSI GE620DX laptop. And I'm very proud ;)
Now, which drivers is needed to upgrade to get this machine as fit as possible to date?
I've been readig about BIOS updates thats very important and GPU drivers aswell.
As is turns out now, the software "SpeedFan" is telling me(while only running Internet Browser) that the CPU runs at 60C,Core 0/1 at 67C. But the laptop itself doesnt feel that hot. I need to upgrade some drivers but I'm very unsure about which ones and how.

Hope anyone can give me a short feedback or maybe some links to guide me properly and safe.

Greetings
PineappleThief

Hello. I think you should try "Live Update 5" From : http://download1.msi.com/files/downloads/uti_exe/LiveUpdate.zip. just install and run it ,click on Scan while You are connected to web!.I hope this can help you, :biggthumbsup:

Don't use Live Update, especially DO NOT USE LU TO DO A BIOS UPDATE.  Go to the product site to get any drivers, but if you aren't having issues, I wouldn't even bother.

Thanks guys. Well I have used LU to update video grapichs. I kinda wondered if there is a BIOS update which make me see the notebooks temperatures in BIOS?
It's running very high(up to 90c) while playing some games, according to speedfan software. I'm not sure if I can trust speedfan or not, but 90c makes me worried.

I had the same problems with the temps, and they are correct. I've tried alot of apps to check the temp, and they are all showing the same. Those high temps also gave me huge fps drops while playing.

What I did to solve this:

I turned off Intel SpeedStep in BIOS. Just set it to Disable instead of Enable.

The only problem with this function off, is that the TurboBoost function dosent seem to work. So you might loose some performance, but nothing ive noticed so far.

This made my laptop 10-12C cooler, and my GPU never goes above 80 while playing.

I'm atm playing SWTOR, some hours/day and I've not noticed any fps drops or extreme high temps.

Yours,
Blix

Thanks man, I will try the steps to see if it might help on my side. I purchased a laptop cooler anyway, temps dropped from 86c to 70c while playing games on high grapichs and frapsing aswell :D
