My "wife" the devil
PTSD, abuse and domestic survivors trigger warning: NSFW
Names have been changed to protect myself in the identities of the children involved
My name is Nate and I am in a living nightmare.
Several months ago after a few unfortunate events out of my control I ended up homeless in the state of Utah with a dog whom at this moment I will assure you never went a single night cold and never missed a meal. I still have her to this day.
Turn name is Tilly
Through hard work dedicationAnd a few friends I had met and their wonderful help they gave to me I was able to escape homelessness. Being better off in my life I had met a girl on Facebook I will call herMarissa. I spent several weeks talking to Marissa being I had a nightmare of a relationship before her I want to be sure I wasn't getting myself into something I didn't want to be part of she seemed to me a perfectly normal girl with 3 children who had been dealt a s***** hand a few times but played it out to the best And dealt with it in healthy ways. After a while of talking and planning I gone down and visit her once or twice in the state of Nevada and everything seemed to go so well she was nice she was normal I noticed no text or red flags. Eventually I decided with her I was going to move down there live with her and help her be able to get out of her mother's house where she had been staying in renting so that we could move on 9n our own.
Well I moved down and several months into the relationship everything is gone fairly well there were a few slipups and costs when I got here that I don't want to speak about now do nothing I wasn't capable of dealing with that seemed to just be a when off one time thing. On March 9 we got married and living together this is when things began to go baaaaaad...
Melissa has 3 children a 9 year old boy we will call Braden Mary Who share the same father And a four-year-old boy we will call Caleb who has a different father than the other 2 and goes to that father's house every other week.
One thing I tried to help her with woz kidnapping from her mother Marisa's mother like to take her children and force Marissa to let Braden and Mary stay thereAnd then refused to give them back.
This is necessary information to understand some things you will hear
Breeden has not come to live with us Mary and Caleb have though at the moment Mary and Braden are at Marissa's mother's house and Caleb just got here from his father's last night which events that unfolded after happens to be the last straw and forced me to decide to write this.
After a couple months of living with The 3 of them Marissa Mary and Caleb I began to notice some quirks i hadn't seen before.
The word want is what drives these children and their mother. There is no responsibility and no telling them know there are rules however as long as the child States I want they get to do or get to take even if it is stealing no matter what as long as they state "I want" mother will ensure it happens nomatyer who she has to step on to get it.
Mary is 6 years old and weighs 100 pounds. Being her stepfather I decided I would try to teach her good healthy eating habits snacks being OK in Kandy is OK sometimes to how ever meals and healthy eating is important for children. Your mother however decided to let me know that she does not want me parenting her children that is until she wants to sneak out of the house and cheat on me and wants me to watch them for her or she wants me to take them to the store and buy them things with my paycheck. When giving Caleb a bath or if he is lying in his bed or our bed she has this habit of leaning over and patting him on his PPFor he will grab Melissa or Mary's hand or his own hand and put it on his PP and dance in wiggle around. I have mentioned my concern to her about this many times, she explodes.
Caleb has a habit of hurting animals being very mean to them kicking them hitting them teasing them with food trying to choke them I know the warning signs there's no need to tell me and I have tried to get her and him into therapy over the last couple of months, to no avail.
Marissa likes to cheat on me on Facebook and whoever she confined to talk to she spends 90% of her waking hours on her phone the other 10% is with her children not us all as a family but using them as a weapon against me.
My car broke down so I began using her Van to get to work
She will at random up and decide she wants to hide the keys from me or make a threat ti me about calling animal co trol to tske my d9gs away knowing ill rush home. As a result lose my job, she then will hop on Facebook and tell people I'm abusive and won't get a job. Then after she costs me a job she'll say "im not getting bkameed for this here just go to work"
She has cost me 7 jobs now.
I now have to leave home 3 hours before work together there on the bus just so I dont lose another job.
She likes to scream at me about anything she can find. Or make things up to scream to show her kids that she has control and power over me and that I have to listen to her and do as the kids want or else she'll scream at me and hit me.
Mind you, I am horrified for these children and I have infact "STEPPED UP"being the reason I still try even with all this.
Continuing forward, she shows NO empathy for me, or my dogs. Nonatyet what happens to us she just blatantly does not give a shit. Period.
She has never, no exaggeration not ine time has she told any if her children no. Braden steals money from debit cards for v bucks (says nothing) Caleb does his little peepee thing or evil push kids steal and break things hurt ani.als or make up lies and start crying to get her to scream at whoever he points at then laughs when she screams and joins in with her
Mary will I want I want I want her way through the day stealing stepping in toes wasting all my.food for lunch at work becase its funny to her.
All 3 children's diets consist of cupcakes. Cotton candy, skittles. Starburst, chips, Coca-Cola, coffee and McDonald's, breakfast lunch and dinner doesnt matter.
They go outside and bully the neighborhood kids in our complex, they'll empty the house of the cups, bowls, electronics, dog food, silverware, my soda and lunch food for work, and whatever they can find and trash the complex by coloring in the sidewalks and other peoples doors with markers and leaving all the stuff and trash outside.
Without saying a word and telling them good job I am expected to go clean up the mess so she doesnt have to get an eviction notice for screaming at the office manager for putting. Aproperty damage claim on our door.
Marissa will if there hasn't been drama for a bit.
Come find me (I'm usually lying on the bed jist screwing on my.phone or reading with the dogs if I'm not working) and find something to say or do hoping ill react so that she can "SEE LOOK WHAT YOU DO" and put it on facebook like her telling me I killed the daughter I lost to pneumonia years ago was my fault. She has these horrible spending habits Meaning for example she will get paid twice a month and say she gets paid on a Friday and her check is about 875 to $900 com Monday afternoon she is digging through my wallet because all of her money is gone she spent it all on clothes and toys and food and c*** like that and none of the bills have gotten paid also all of the utilities are in my name so doesn't ruin her credit And once prompted to stop digging through my wallet in stealing my money she will explode throw things at me she will call the police and say that I have done something or said something and try to get me in trouble in any way possible police have been over to our house numerous times and Have told me and her more specifically her that no crime has been committed it is clear that what she called about has been fabricated and that she is to stop calling them Or she will be ticketed for illegal use of 911
G constantly tells me she wants to be alone and away from me but then she gives 100% of her affection and attention she sent nude photos to all the man on Facebook Shouldn't makes up endless horrible nasty lies about me to them in she uses me as a punching bag to take out every bit of emotional stress or anything that goes wrong ever out on me so that she can appear normal for the men that she cheats on me with.
The children are constantly deliberately disobeying they are serial misbehaviors And if I ever say no about something no matter how horrible it is and how important it is that a child not do that they go straight to her mom tell her she comes in screams at me and then they do it anyway even if it is digging through the Tylenol bottle orEating Skittles and my Coke for breakfast along with a snickers.
When she does my laundry she throws my socks and underwear away and ATM I have 4 pair of underwear and 3 pair of socks.
I have work boots and a pair of flips flops she has thrown the rest of my clothes away and spends all her money stocking up her closet.
She will pull Caleb into our bed to try to kick me and my dogs out of it and if I dont leave like last night she did this, she will attack me and the dogs and start screaming at ungodly volumes and say the nastiest meanest most horrible shit because she wants my bed to herself with her 4 year old who says shit like "nommeeeeeeeyyyyy I wan him to sweep on da fwooooooowr, tewll him he haves to go away from us and being us my ipaa chahwgooh"
And she'll try to force me to do that shit exactly.
Basically. Un her mind and her children's minds, their mom is everybody's mom. She's ONLY THWIR MOM but she is in charge of the rest if the world and her jib is to push and bully everyone else around to make the world what those children want it to be. They steals from stores. Push people out of the way, hit random people, open and eat food then throw the wrappers on the floor in the store without paying for anything. And mawissaaa will be sure to scream at you till her lungs fall out if you dont bow to her kids.
I have began to notice the things that they do and what they expect me to do when they do them in that if I don't do it because they won't tell me to do what they want me to just know to do it if I don't they will explode on me and bully me into doing something else hurt my dogs when I'm gone at work she will also somehow find someway to feed off of my conscience and good heart and try to make me feel bad for defending myself had me fooled for a little while thinking that I really was a bad person for not trusting her when she leaves for 6 hours in comes home empty Handed saying she went to Walmart and exploded on me where or when I asked where she was because I was late for work Or that I was wrong when I told her I needed attention and needed my emotional calls answered instead of being ignored and yelled app when I needed affection from my wife the woman I married and didn't want her posting any more nude photos on other guys statuses.
She will fly into rages at random times she has no empathy for anybody else if you call her out on doing something horrible she disrupts her shoulders and says what are you going to do about it she makes up scenarios in her head and caused the police in makes up false scenarios to them and asks them what their gonna do about it when they find out that she's lying. All in all this is about 10% of the things that she does in the things that go on at home though I can't bring myself to bring any more of it up at the moment somebody help me I will post again later with stories and more information has I am hoping this will help my mental health and strength to move on and find somehow or someway to go somewhere else
Marissa has been on a kick recently, most abusive I've ever seen her.
Before, when I stated her mother will kidnap her kids and refuse to give them back, well she hated her mother for that. I had been there for her in every aspect since the beginning and, while I didn't know before, I did used to text her mother about the insane shit marissa had been doing and try ro figure out how to help her and make it better. What a mistake that was. Ofcorse, marissa didn't like me telling her mom the evil shit she did and for some reason I stopped. marissa then began to lie to her mom about me what she said I dont know but back in June her mom blocked me and played friendly with marissa. We had had Mary (6 year old female step child) at our apartment away from her kidnapping mom for several weeks, Marissa's birthday came along and I was not invited. Ofcorse. Well she went with her mom and everybody else to crackerbarrel (where her and I went after we got married) and low and behold she came home crying, mad at her mom and feeling used. Slightly smug, though curious i asked.. "what happened" well, her mom made her pay for all eight people (on her birthday) and then stole Mary afterward and took the gift card marissa was given by her mom to crackerbarrwl the night before for her birthday, and made her use it to pay for her mom and everyone else.
Pretty fucked up but remembering all the shit she has done to me I let her know,
"I'm sorry that happened marissa, but remember that I warned you that would happen and remmeber what you did to me to turn on me with your mom and she used you"
Well. I have a heart and a conscience so, I decided to help and be supportive again. Big mistake.
Since then. These are some of the things that she has made a habit of doing.
I sold my car To help her and I pay rent after she had spent all of her money and stolen my paycheck solely because I needed some work to live to. Arisa has a Van from her father which is in her father's name they hold the title over her head but never end up giving it to her. Marissa works from home and I pay the power and Internet she has Monday in Tuesday off. Well how she's made me lose jobs before is I will take her Van to work because she works from home and she will find something to tell me or something to do that is emergency for me knowing that I am going to have to leave work come home only for her to use that opportunity to call out of work and take her Van and go spend more money or something like that.
On Monday she drove me to work it's about a 15 minute drive from home and dropped me off I had a veterinary appointment for my 2 dogs who have been throwing up and having blood in their stoolBecause Marissa and her children "accidentally"Spray bleach in their water bowl or feed them things like ice cream sandwiches and high CO percent chocolateCloset that they are in and 2 cameras to watch them while I am gone.so she dropped me off, and when it came time to pick me up, she was not here. She finally shows up after I started walking (later to be assumed that she realized I had money she spent hers and she wanted gas) she was in a mid thigh length shirt, messy hair, smeared makeup and nothing but the bottom.portion of the lingerie I bought her underneath. She'd lied and been cheating again. She exploded when called on it and claims oh my aunts groceries are in the car I need to drop them off, then no I took them inside, then we get there I remind her about supposed groceries inside and and explodes. I didnt get to take my dogs she poisoned to the vet, because she went out cheating for the second time in one day. Why should she have to tell her husband the truth or where she goes?
Good. Question... (mind you she had her 4 year old son all day.) Walking inside the house ignoring her screaming she threw a glass tea bottle, cracked me right in the back of the neck then called the police and said I "touched her butt" 1. No. Not even in the mood after she cheated. 2. Its my wife. Well I've been using uber and the heel toe express to get to work the last 2 days now and thismorning, she asks me to take the 4 year old to daycare (6 year old she picked up last night, has school but hasn't been on the laptop for school for the last week and a half) now that I had been asked to take him because she cant stand them when they're together, she wants me to use her van to go.to work now? I told her yesterday her answers from then on would be no. And if I could use her van to go to work I could be petty. And change my internet password that she uses for her work. (I wouldn't and didnt) but she lost it. Well. She forgot I had to been using her van so what she tried to take away was my wallet. Ya. Marissa has this idea that, she can bail on her life, set up shop in someone else's and take complete control over them and their decisions and things. She can take whatever she wants away but, you are required to open things in her name for her to use and take away from you, or make you give her things for her to use after she takes everything away from you. And if you try to take something of yours away from her, that she can call the police and tell them its a domestic and they'll come take you away or force you to do as she days because she is Marissa, daughter of maryanne and you HAVE to do as she wants. She really thinks that. Well, currently I'm saving and getting pay stubs together to move, and I have to stay for the moment so my dogs can be somewhere so I can go to work. Marissa likes to hop on Facebook and say things like, "Way to sneak in to my life and leech off a single mother and steal her money away from her kids BRO"
or "ill never chose.you over my kids BRO" She really relies on the lies. This usually happens after 1. I have caught one of the children doing something like, coloring on peoples doors with markers, 2. Stealing money or toys from other kids in our complex 3. Brought everything they can outside, left it, and covered the front in trash then refused to pick up. "Theyre just children, tell your stupid piece if shit dogs to do it" she'll say.
Sometimes when she goes to the laundry room.to do laundry, she'll either
A. Use my money for it but refuse to do any of my clothes B. Throw a good handful of my clothes away while doing it. (I have 4 pair or underwear 5 pair pants, six shirts 4 are work shirts one pair of boots and 3 pair of socks left)
I am expected to sacrifice things I NEED so she can steal my money and use it on lingerie for her favebook boys or toys and new shoes every week for her kids.
I have always been excluded from being part of the family and called a stranger, however when they're out of money and have a hankering for some spending. They're really nice nice. However she doesn't even try anymore and the MOMENT she gets what she wants she spouts a horrible insult and goes about her screaming. When called out on what she just did she'll just shrug her shoulders and tell me, well she's a bitch to me because I'm a jerk. Ya... I'm a real jerk..
Marissa, if she doesn't get the last word in or if she takes something and you have to take something back to help yourself because she took from you first, if you dont just lay down and let her fuck you over and get the last petty act in or last take away. She calls the cops and lies her ass off. They have told her a million and one times "no crime has been committed ma'am, if you call this in or fabricate incidents again you will be ticketed for unlawful use of 911" she totally ignores it.
Most times when she's screaming and accusing and making shit uo even she knows I didnt do, ill just tell her look, Marissa.. I'm sorry but im not going to fight back with you, it's pointless im sorry. I wont do it. She says she'll text her mom.to call in a domestic.
She finds the things that hurt and trigger me most then hits those buttons over and over untill I can't hold it in anymore then "see, you're psychotic. You're out of control. You need help. I'm scared for my life" though, I get hit and have things thrown at me and besides never touching her or even getting in her face, most times I just submit because I am afraid of what she'll do to my poor dogs when i'm gone if I dont.
Knowing I lost my father at 13 and was abandoned by my family when it happened, And that I lost my first and only child to pneumonia at 19. These are her two favorite things to sit and poke at. "You're so useless, you killed your daughter, that's your fault, all my kids are just fine" shit like that.
I remember one time things were going pretty damn well, I was going through Facebook on her phone. Her sitting next to me, trying to find a video from a voice actor. She got a notification and I clicked it, went to hand her her phone and noticed, well that's my wife. Ass naked. On my bed. In a comment. On somebody else's status. Fuck I was upset and the moment she saw it. Oooooooh she lost it on me. Bkame blame blame. Its just this. It was an accident, its nothing, I did it because you, anything she could muster. She stood up grabbed her back threw a glass of unsweetened iced tea on me, picked up the dogs bear, threw it at him ditched her daughter with me (later she told her daughter that I was mean to her and made her do it) and left for six hours.
Yesterday I told her I was having a friend come over and we were going to go walk the dogs together we go to the park across the street and let them Chase the rabbits rabbits are on the other side of a fence so no they don't catch them. She told me that if my friends came over she was scared for her life that we were going to kill her and that she would call the police and say that he touched her son, well my friend is a she. So, she came and picked me up from work and we went to mt.house anyway. I had her wait outside and I went and grabbed the dogs, when I went in, she wasn't there, but what WAS there was a condom and a sock not belonging to me on my bed, and my change jar emptied and safe tampered with. I got made fun of last night. Litterally. For eating breakfast before work.
I have no less than 3 panic attacks a day, I used to not have any anxiety. I have grown a considerable amount of grey hair in my beard and started shaving my head again. I can't eat, I can't sleep, I have chronic pain and I am constantly so physically tensed that my pain level has gone up 200% I cannot bare this level of hate and concentrated malevolence any longer..
I am sorry for the painfully long post run on sentences in the jumping around I can't afford any mental health therapy at the moment,
XMG Gaming Laptops: First Steps & Troubleshooting
So you got yourself an XMG Gaming Laptop laptop, huh?Congratulations! :-)
Follow this handy guide to go through your first steps and some commonly recurring questions. This guide is pretty long and might look frightening on first look, but please note:
- Sometimes it's not a bug, it might be a feature
- Sometimes a thing might be caused by Windows or might be a known issue for a generic hardware components (including NVIDIA Optimus), i.e.: not caused by us
- Some issues covered in this guide are extremely rare, have only been reported once or twice and might be very easy to fix
Let's dive right in:
I unboxed my XMG Laptop – what are my first steps?1. If you purchased with Windows.
When building our laptops, we always make sure to install the latest firmware and drivers. If you purchased with Windows, all drivers will already be installed and you can pretty much start working. NVIDIA updates their driver pretty often, so they might already have a new driver out. Open up GeForce Experience, log into your account and see if the app offers any driver updates.
2. If you purchased without operating system.
Your SSD will be empty, but your firmware will be up to date. Even if you purchase without operating system, we will already have updated the latest BIOS and latest Thunderbolt firmware. Now it’s time to install Windows and install our drivers.
If you don’t have your own Windows install media at hand, you can get the latest official version from here:
- Download Windows 10 from microsoft.com
- XMG & SCHENKER download portal on schenker-tech.de
++ Troubleshooting (all models) +++The following items might apply to any XMG or SCHENKER model. In fact, they might also apply to laptops from other brands. Further down below, you'll find a section that is more specific to individual models.
My Gaming Laptop is pretty loud/hot when playing gamesTo judge whether or not your system runs at spec, please compare your benchmark values against various press reviews of your CPU, GPU and your laptop itself. If your results are similar to the published numbers, your system is probably working just fine. If they are widely below expectations, please contact us.
If you want to know more about how to tweak your system to run a bit cooler, please check out these threads:
- CPU Undervolting in BIOS Setup for XMG and SCHENKER
- Using a Frame Limiter might de-noise your gaming laptop without losing performance and it's now easier to do than ever before
My battery life is less than it should be / I have high Idle power consumption / My fans are loud in Idle / my dGPU is not turning off.Battery life and power consumption are closely interconnected. If your system consumes too much power – even in Idle – your battery life will suffer.
Preliminary: check your CPU usage, sorted by tasks
Your first look should be into Windows Task Manager, tab "Details" and then sort by "CPU" usage. You should know that your CPU has multiple cores and threads. For example, on i7-9750H (6 cores, 12 threads) if one single-thread task is running at 100%, it translates to "only" 8% CPU load in Task Manager (100 divided by 12 = 8.33). 8% might not look like much at first glance. But in reality it's one core that is running at maximum speed, taking almost as much power as if all cores would run at the same time. This is because the CPU would boost a single core to much higher speed than it would boost all cores together.
In other words: CPU usage values in Task Manager can be misleading, especially if some broken or badly programmed software is going rogue on a single thread. Do the math!
So, on a 6 core CPU, if you have any process in Task Manager constantly running at 8%, something is off. Please identify which task it is, and either end it right there it or uninstall the related software altogether.
Another way to check is to separate the Task Manager CPU activity graph into logical cores. Check these two screenshots:
only 1 thread.
All systems nominal? CPU is nice and idle? Check the dGPU status.
If you don't have any rogue tasks clogging up you CPU but your Idle power consumption is still off the charts, it might be because your NVIDIA GPU (dedicated GPU, dGPU) is not turning itself off.
Under the system of NVIDIA Optimus (MSHybrid), all common Windows apps are run on the Intel UHD Graphics (integrated GPU, iGPU) by default and the dedicated GPU (dGPU) should turn itself off when it is not needed. This removes the dGPU from the power source but it also saves power on the CPU side, because the CPU can turn off the PCI-Express x16 dGPU connection and thus achieve lower sleep states in each CPU cycle. This system can be disturbed in a number of ways, leading to higher power consumption which in turn leads to lower battey life.
1. Check which system monitoring tools you are running in the background
Some system monitoring software intentionally wakes up the dGPU. Keeping such software running in the background will inevitably lead to higher power consumption. We will keep a list of tools here which do and which do not keep the dGPU awake.
|Does not keep the dGPU awake||Keeps the dGPU awake|
|CoreTemp||AIDA64 (only when “Sensor” pane is open)|
|HWiNFO64||ASUS GPU Tweak II|
|Intel Extreme Tuning Utility||CPUID HWMonitor|
|NVIDIA Control Panel||MSI Afterburner|
|Speccy||NVIDIA GeForce Experience|
|TechPowerUp Real Temp||NVIDIA Inspector|
|Windows Task Manager||Open Hardware Monitor|
|XMG Control Center (only when “System Monitor” pane is open)|
Some of the programs on the left side of the table might wake up the dGPU once for a few seconds during initialization. But according to our testing, they won’t keep the dGPU awake during normal operation.
If you want to see, whether or not your dGPU is awake or not, the best bet is to use the “Sensors” function in HWiNFO64 and keep an eye on the GPU Temperature of your NVIDIA GeForce card. If the temperature reads 0°C, the dGPU is sleeping. With a right click on the Temperature value, you can even set up an alarm in form of a sound file, notification popup or logfile entry if the temperature reaches a value ≥ 1.
2. If external monitor is connected, dGPU will be awake.
Both HDMI and USB-C/DisplayPort/Thunderbolt are connected directly to the NVIDIA GeForce card. This dedicated connection gives the XMG FUSION 15 the power to drive very high resolutions, refresh rates and to support G-SYNC and FreeSync on external screens. The trade-off: the dGPU will always be awake as soon as an external monitor is connected. Rendering can still happen on the iGPU (Intel UHD Graphics) - but the dGPU will always be "awake" to deliver the pixels to the screen.
3. The choice of running apps on iGPU vs. dGPU has to be done in Windows Graphics settings now.
Microsoft is taking over the NVIDIA Optimus (MSHybrid) control from NVIDIA. On latest Windows builds and NVIDIA drivers, the NVIDIA driver now shoes a very small warning notification:
Windows OS now manages selection of the graphics processor. Open Windows graphics settingsIf you notice that certain apps wake up the dGPU, please see if you can assign them to the internal graphics in this new Windows setting dialogue. Please note that the aforementioned benchmark and system monitoring apps apps will override/ignore this setting anyway. But it should work fine for most if not all productivity apps and games.
4. Every app is running on dGPU as soon as external monitor is connected? No.
NVIDIA’s Control Center has a hidden function called “NVIDIA GPU Activity” which supposedly shows which app is being rendered on the dGPU. You can find it by enabling "Display GPU Activity Monitor Icon in Notification Area".
Unfortunately, this function is not accurate when using an external monitor. As soon as you have an external monitor connected, the notification window shows every newly launched app as if it’s being rendered on the dGPU, even though it is not. This has been confirmed by our NVIDIA contacts to be a general issue that affects all laptops with NVIDIA Optimus (MSHybrid) of every brand.
It does not look as if NVIDIA has any plans to resolve this issue. Therefor, the “NVIDIA GPU Activity” will continue to show inaccurate information and should rather not be used at all.
5. dGPU does not go back to sleep after disconnecting external screen while browser is open
If you launch your browser (Chrome, Firefox, Edge) while you are connected to an external screen, the browser’s hardware acceleration will use the dGPU. This happens despite the fact that you are forcing that app to run on Integrated Graphics. If the browser keeps running after you connect the external screen, it will keep the dGPU awake.
Even sending the laptop to Standby and waking it up again won’t change that fact. The dGPU will only go back to sleep after you close the specific app that triggered this behaviour.
This seems to affect every laptop with NVIDIA Optimus (MSHybrid) – not only XMG laptops.
We have filed a report with NVIDIA and we are awaiting their feedback.
Here is a short list of apps that are affected and not affected by this issue:
|Affected||Not affected (Control Group)|
|Google Chrome||Microsoft Word|
According to what we heard, NVIDIA does not seem to have any plans to fix this issue on a fundamental basis.
Workaround #1: Restart your Browser
Close your browser and launch it again after disconnecting from the external screen.
Workaround #2: Disable Hardware Acceleration in Browser
You can find this in the Settings menu of your Browser.
Download here: dGpuCycle Script.zip
Written by Notebookcheck user ‘Stepon’ (source). You can open the script with Notepad to read the source code.
After disconnecting the external screen, run this Batch Script with Admin privileges. The script will disable and re-enable the dGPU in Device Manager. During that moment, your browser will drop the Hardware Acceleration from dGPU and go back to iGPU. Chrome will flicker for a fraction of a second. If you play any videos on your browser while running the script, you might have to restart playback by jumping to a different point in the video timeline.
With some programming skills can be further automated to always run in the background.
6. Same as above, but for most if not all apps that use a browser engine underneath.
The browser hardware acceleration issue applies to apps that are using a browser engine to create their GUI. If you launch such an app while you're connected to an external monitor, they will use the dGPU for hardware acceleration and won't let go of it until you either close the app or manually disable the dGPU. The most popular such apps are:
- Microsoft Teams
- Microsoft Visual Code
We are not aware of any way to disable hardware acceleration on these apps. Disabling hardware acceleration in your browser won't affect those apps. The only workarounds are:
- Start the apps before you connect your external screen
- Restart the apps after you connect your external screen
- Disable and re-enable the dGPU with the above dGpuCycle script
7. Outdated Killer Wi-Fi driver increasing power consumption.
We had a report where an outdated Killer Wi-Fi suite caused high background CPU load. If you are using a Rivet Networks Killer Wi-Fi module, please download and install the latest drivers here.
8. Missing NVIDIA USB-C and Audio drivers keep the dGPU awake?
We have a report from a user who made a custom install of NVIDIA drivers and unselected the NVIDIA USB-C and Audio drivers because he thought we won't need them. In this case, not having those drivers will cause the main driver to not shutdown the dGPU when searching for those two drivers. We were not able to reproduce it but we'll leave it in this guide for future reference. Solution: reinstall NVIDIA drivers and include every driver, even the optional ones.
9. Outdated Windows and firmware?
If you haven’t already, make sure you are running the latest Windows updates and the latest BIOS. Some major Windows milestones (also called “Redstone” updated) need to be triggered manually by opening Windows Updates, then “Checking for updates”. Under “Optional updates”, there might be a “Feature update” which you can initiate with “Download and install now” (screenshot).
10. Third party PCIe/NVMe SSD preventing CPU from sleeping?
We had recently a few reports on budget SSDs from smaller brands preventing the CPU from reaching C8 sleep states, severely cutting battery life. If you upgrades your SSD yourself with a model that is not listed in our online shop, please consider to swap it out, re-install Windows from scratch and try again. If you found your SSD to be the culprit, please share the product name with us.
11. Corsair iCue Software causes +10W power consumption?
We have seen this report from multiple users. This one was the first:
I spent a week trying to figure out why the processor on my Fusion 15 was consuming so much power when idle (around 10W!). My battery life was absolutely abysmal at about 2.5 hours on a full charge. I thought I had ruled out the iCue software because I closed the app completely, but it turns out only a complete uninstall will allow everything to return to normal so it must have been the mouse driver itself rather than the iCue software.Source
We haven't checked it ourselves but any kind of hardware-related 3rd party software could potentially cause power saving issues on any system.
12. Epic Games Launcher running on dGPU
First reported here]. Solution is in the top reply to that thread.
13. Paint 3D causes the dGPU to stay 'ON' by running in the Background, even after Reboot
This seems to be a real issue based on a bug from Microsoft. Check this thread for details.
14. Other reason? Cannot reach CPU Package C8 Residency? Please take part in our survey
Please read this post for an introduction into CPU Package C8 Residency states. The post includes a link to a survey to collect analytical data from users who just can't get their power consumption down despite already having implemented all prior suggestions.
15. Dig deeper? Check out this amazing in-depth guide about Windows power saving optimization and C-States.

Random short spikes in lag and stutterIntel Driver and Support Assistant (DSA) is acting up, causing CPU spikes up to 40% every 1-5 minutes.
Taken from this post:
Intel Driver and Support Assistant (DSA) is acting up, causing CPU spikes up to 40% every 1-5 minutes. See this picture of task manager cumulative CPU time. Funny you already mentioned that it stopped working, as I experienced the same thing.
Uninstall Intel DSA for now. You can do this via the windows Apps and Programs, or if it fails for any reason, download the official Uninstaller from the intel website.
My laptop randomly wakes up from Standby.1. Firmware solution for Wake-up 3 hours after entering Sleep/Standby. (XMG FUSION 15 only)
There was an issue with the NVIDIA USB-C driver which caused the laptop to wake up exactly 3 hours after entering Standby. The laptop was trying to transition into Hibernate (Suspend to Disk) but failed to do so. This issue is resolved in BIOS 0062 and beyond.
2. Disable Wake timers (applies to any PC and Laptop)
Depending on your Windows configuration, there might be certain task schedules (including Windows Updates) which prompt the laptop to wake-up from Sleep or Hibernate. To check on these issues, please read this article. The most common solution is to disable the “Allow wake timers” option for both “plugged in” and “on-battery”. Please note: this setting depends on each power profile and your laptop has three of them: Silent, Balanced, Enthusiast. Please switch to each of these profiles and modify “Allow wake timer” in the Advanced settings in Windows power options for each one of these.
3. Check the Wake-up cause
There is a simple command that will tell you the reason why your laptop woke up for the last time. Usually this is something like "Power Button" or "Lid Opening", but in your case it might point to a different driver or Windows component. Find "Command Prompt" in Start Menu and type:
powercfg -lastwakeThis command does not need Admin right. Please copy it by marking the output text and pressing Enter. The marked text from the Command Prompt windows is now in your clipboard and can be pasted into a text file or message box. Alternatively you can take a picture and report back to us.
My laptop needs a long time to boot up.Cold Boot and Wake-up from Hibernate should not take much more than 12 seconds between pressing the power button and seeing the login screen wallpaper. If your laptop takes much longer, please consider the following options.
1. Enable “Fast Boot”.
Enabling “Fast Boot” in BIOS is a requirement to use Microsoft’s “Hybrid Boot” technology which saves a lot of time on Cold Boot. Before shipping, we always enable “Fast Boot” in all XMG laptops – but it might get disabled by user operation. On some models, it might also get disabled during BIOS Reset. To make sure, you have “Fast Boot” enabled, follow these steps:
- Reboot and enter BIOS Setup [F2]
- Open [Boot] menu and enter [Boot Priority]
- Find [Fast Boot] and set it to [Enabled]
- Back in [Exit] category, select [Save Changes and Exit], Reboot
2. Flash firmware again
You can clearly seperate the boot process between BIOS time and Windows time. Everything that happens before you see the XMG boot logo is BIOS time. On XMG FUSION 15, it usually takes about 7 seconds between pressing the power button and seeing the XMG boot logo for the first time. If this time period is much, much longer in your case, the root cause might be in hardware or firmware.
One potential solution was found in this post. This user already had a system with Thunderbolt Firmware NVM v56. But based on a hunch, he just tried to update the same firmware again and it instantly fixed his long BIOS time.
It makes kind of sense. VBIOS, Thunderbolt... those are large, complex and kind of external components that are initialized in the very early steps of the the BIOS. If anything is stalling there, you won't see the boot logo because the BIOS hasn't even attempted yet to start talking to the SSD.
Rule of thumb: if you have long BIOS time before you see the XMG logo, please consider to flash the BIOS and the Thunderbolt Firmware again.
Now, let's look at various Windows-based causes:
3. Clean up TEMP folders
Taken from this post.
Found out, during each boot Windows (namely it's ProfSvc service) takes everything you have in users/yourprofile folder and writes over those files. I suspect it's changing some meta data in the files. Probably edditing read/write premissions. But it goes one by one. And logon process waits for it to finish. As long as your computer is relatively clean, this operation takes a second or two. But when Visual Studio update "forgets" 160 000 files in your AppData/Temp folder, it results in 35 secs of profile loading during boot. All I needed was to empty the Temp folder and the bootups are back in normal!You can either clean the Temp folders manually or use a software like CCleaner. Please beware, we would only recommend CCleaner to clean temp files, but don't clean the Windows Registry. It's usually safe to do but it can sometimes lead to false positive situations and side-effects.
4. Riot Games 'Vanguard' might block one of our drivers
If you have game titles from Riot Games installed, the software 'Vanguard' might be blocking the 'inpoutx64.sys' driver on some of our systems. This driver is related to the Control Center. We have heard of one single case where the presence of Vanguard lead to a significantly increased boot-time. In other cases however, it had no effect despite getting the 'Vanguard has blocked' message in Windows.
We will share this information with our ODM to see if our signed inpoutx64.sys/dll can be whitelisted. Meanwhile, please consider disabling or uninstalling Vanguard to see if it improves your boot time.
5. Consider a clean reinstall
It might be inconvenient, but if you have any boot times that are wildly longer than above reference data, please consider a clean Windows installation. 'Clean' means deleting the system partitions on your SSD in the first step of the installation procedure. Before you do this, you should backup all important data on external storage.
6. Other causes.
If your system still takes a long time to even display the XMG boot logo or to boot into the Login prompt, there might be another issue at hand. Please make sure to update your BIOS, load setup defaults, enable “Fast Boot” again and make sure that your Windows and drivers are up to date. Please also consider to follow the generic advice in this article.
There is currently no other known systematic issue that prevents our laptops from doing a fast boot or fast wake-up. If you cannot resolve the issue on your machine, please consider to backup your data and do a clean Windows re-install.
For XMG FUSION 15 we have opened a dedicated tread about expected boot times after a clean install. Please move all relevant discussion to this thread:
My microphone does not sound right(I might be using Discord)
First, please make sure you increased the microphone gain to 100% and added the +20dB boost.
- Find "Sound settings" in Start menu
- Scroll down and click on "Sound Control Panel"
- Select "Recording" tab and double-click your microphone
- Select "Levels" tab and put everything to maximum (screenshot)
I have random Bluescreens or other random issues / might be memory-relatedBluescreens and other randomly occurring issues can have a number of reasons. Sometimes, the error message or driver reference can already point at a root cause. If there are too many possible root causes, here are some generic tips.
- If you have Undervolting in BIOS, disable it (set it to Zero)
- Update your BIOS
- Reset your BIOS (Load Defaults)
- Make sure you have all drivers installed correctly (at least no yellow exclamation marks in Device Manager)
- Make sure you are not running any 3rd party system software or drivers
- Consider to do a clean Reinstall of Windows
- Test your RAM with MemTest86, booted from USB
Follow these steps:
- Download MemTest 86 Free from here (you do not need to purchase the Pro version)
- This will download a file called "memtest86-usb.zip". Extract it to a new sub-folder
- Plug-in your USB stick. Make sure there is no important data. The next steps will delete all data on your USB stick.
- In the new folder, run imageUSB.exe and confirm the Admin prompt
- You will be greeted with this interface. Confirm the Drive Letter of your empty USB Stick
- Click the "Write" button and read and confirm all prompts
- With the USB stick successfully prepared, reboot your laptop and enter BIOS Setup (F2)
- Make sure your laptop charging cable is plugged-in and connected to external power
- Find and disable "Secure Boot" and "Fast Boot". Those are the only options you need to change. Enabling CSM or Legacy Mode is not required for this version of MemTest
- Save & Exit from your BIOS setup. During the reboot hold F10 (XMG FUSION 15) or F7 (all other laptops) to enter the Boot Media Selection prompt
- Select your USB drive from the Boot Media menu
- MemTest86 will start automatically and look like this. If any errors are detected, take a picture of the screen and contact support
- If you complete the first pass (Pass: 1 / 4) without any errors, there is a good chance that you won't see any additional errors and you can cancel the test and reboot with Ctrl+Alt+Del. When in doubt, you can also run it overnight with multiple passes. On a typical gaming laptop, running MemTest86 will constantly pull about 100W out of the wall socket
- When you finish your tests, go back to BIOS Setup to undo earlier changes or just Load Defaults to reset everything
If the RAM modules are actually not faulty, it can sometimes also help to just remove and replace (reseat) them. Sometimes, if they are not properly connected, they might also prompt random errors including iGPU graphics artifacts.
+++ Troubleshooting XMG FUSION 15 (2019) +++The following items apply only to XMG FUSION 15. Please check first if your issue is covered under the general section above. The latest BIOS and Control Center update can be found in this thread.
My speaker sound is underwhelming / I cannot get Soundblaster Connect running.Sound Blaster Connect is an important app to improve the experience of the audio system. It can increase volume (SmartVol) and Bass of the speakers.
1. Reinstall Audio drivers in the proper sequence
Normally, when all pre-requisites are met, Soundblaster Connect should install automatically from Windows. You can then find it with a simple search for “Sound Blaster” in the Windows Start menu. If Sound Blaster Connect is no where to be found or if it only shows an empty screen, please follow the sequence precisely:
- No prior steps necessary – you do not need to uninstall prior packages
- Please download the Audio drivers again from our download portal
- You only need the file “AudioDriver_Package_3-in-1“
- Extract the ZIP Archive
- Install Audio-with-SST and reboot Windows (!)
- Install Soundblaster-EQ
- Install Soundblaster-Creative_Audio_Effects
My CPU shows high activity in idle while having devices connected to USB-C port.We are currently tracking an issue where users have reported >10% CPU usage in Idle while having certain devices connected to the USB-C port.
Current Workaround: Disable Automatic Sleep on Thunderbolt controller
Device Manager > System devices > Thunderbolt Controller > Power Management > Disable "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power"
I’m unable to turn off my keyboard backlight during boot.Normally, if you disable the keyboard backlight in Control Center using the slider switch, it should also be disabled during Reboot, Cold Boot etc. We had one report of a rare issue where this settings was not applied to firmware anymore. If you encounter this issue, please click the “Restore” button in Control Center to reset all you Keyboard Backlight settings. Then, try again to disable the Keyboard Backlight and reboot.
My keyboard backlight is not turning on anymore.We had a few reports of keyboard backlight not being able to turn on anymore. If you encounter this issue, please reset your BIOS settings.
- Reboot and enter BIOS Setup [F2]
- Open [Exit] menu; select and confirm [Restore Defaults] but do not reboot yet
- Open [Boot] menu and enter [Boot Priority]
- Find [Fast Boot] and set it to [Enabled]
- Back in [Exit] category, select [Save Changes and Exit], Reboot
I cannot access my BIOS Setup (F2) anymore.This is another very rare issue that was only reported once so far. If you cannot access your BIOS Setup, you cannot do a BIOS Reset anymore.
Solution: Remove CMOS Jumper from Mainboard and Reboot
The mainboard of XMG FUSION 15 has a jumper to control the BIOS Reset. In order to reach this jumper, you will need to remove the bottom case of the laptop. This is as easy as removing the 10 screws on the bottom side and then simply lifting the bottom cover away from the laptop.
The jumper is located next to the WiFi module
Now, please see if you can now get back into BIOS Setup with the F2 key during boot.
My external USB mouse sometimes stops moving.We have some reports from USB gaming mouse with ≥1000Hz polling rate that sometimes stop working when used together with USB hubs, both on USB-A and USB-C (Thunderbolt).
Please install the latest official drivers from your mouse vendor and see if you can reduce the polling rate to 500Hz to see if it makes any difference.
My system consumes about 1~2% battery in Standby/Sleep modeThis is normal and also affects both XMG FUSION and XMG NEO series with opto-mechanical keyboard. Reason: the keyboard consumes slightly over 1W even in standby, because it is still firing up the Infrared barriers for every individual switch. This is to make sure that the keyboard can wake the system from standby. This translates to a power consumption (witch charger, measured at wall socket) of up to 1.8W in Standby if the battery is already fully charged. Due to a hardware design constraint, the power of the keyboard switches cannot be turned off, unless the system is sent to Hibernate (S4) or Shutdown (S5).
Workaround: use Hibernate. By default, Standby automatically transitions into Hibernate after 180 minutes. You can shorten this timespan in the Advanced Power Options in Windows (Screenshot). You have to do this for each of the Performance Profiles that you use (Silent, Balanced, Enthusiast). Before that, you have to enable Hibernate in this menu.
I would like to improve my DPC Latencies.For guaranteed low DPC latencies, please check out our SCHENKER Audio Editions. For all other models, we're going to collect a number of tips here over time.
