    I have upgrade to Windows 10 on my Clevo P15xSM and the notebook locks up when I touch the keyboard

    You have upgraded your Clevo P15xSM to Windows 10 and everything is working fine. You do the Windows Updates and everything seems to have worked until you touch the keyboard. This locks up your notebook. After a restart the same thing...every time you touch the keyboard, the system locked up.

    There appears to be a problem with the Windows updates that causes this issue. It is not a driver as we tried to update with no drivers and the issue continues to happen. After working on this issue we have found how to fix this and keep the system from locking up. We have put a step by step method on the .pdf attached to this entry.

    Modifications required to use the GTX 1070 in my Clevo P15xSM/SMA
    Mar 21, 2018

    In order for the Clevo P15xSM/SMA notebooks to use the GTX 1070 video card some small modifications are necessary to the frame of the notebook. These small mods will have no ill effect on the notebook.

    Two plastic support frames need to be removed with a Dremmel tool (or alike tool). Once these frames have been removed the card and heatsink will properly fit into the notebook and will be secured without any issues. If you would like more information please fill in a support request and more info and pictures can be provided.
