|In my Eurocom Sky Z7 R2 Laptop, Can the fast NVMe 4.0 port be included in a RAID setup?|
Sep 22, 2021
Your Eurocom Sky Z7 R2 has four M.2 slots for storage. Three of the slots are NVMe PCIe Gen3 and one is NVMe PCIe Gen4. The Gen4 slot can utilize the faster PCIe Gen4 hard drives.
This single PCIe Gen4 cannot be included in any type of RAID setup on your Laptop. Only the 3 NVMe PCIe Gen3 drive can be put into a RAID 0, 1 or 5 RAID array.
The reason for this is that the technology used in the newer Gen4 slot is not closely compatible enough with the Gen3 slot to be together in a RAID array.

|Just Upgraded my RAM in my Eurocom X7 R2 and now my notebook will not boot|
Sep 22, 2021
You just upgraded your RAM to the maximum capacity of 128GB in your Eurocom Sky Z7 R2 but now your notebook will not boot. It starts but just runs and runs and never boots up.
This has been identified an a re-occurring problem when upgrading your notebook to 4 x 32GB stick of RAM
The way to fix this issue is to add your RAM one stick at a time. If you doing a major upgrade in RAM sometimes the system resources are overwhelmed by the large change. Simply put on stick of 32GB of RAM in your notebook and start your notebook. Then shut off your notebook and add a second stick and re-start. Then do the same with the 3rd and 4th.
This will allow your system to use the systems resources to identify and use the large 32GB sticks of RAM.

|Can I upgrade my system to use NVidia G-Sync?|
Jun 11, 2015
Unfortunately No. In order for a notebook to use NVidia G-Sync it must come from the factory with G-Sync enabled. Part of the requirements are as following...
1) Supported GPU
2) Supported LCD Panel
3) NVidia GPU Driver R352.06 or above
4) Eurocom G-BIOS
What is G-Sync?
G-Sync is a proprietary adaptive sync technology created by NVidia to eliminate screen tearing and the need for software deterrents such as Vsync. G-Sync eliminates screen tearing by forcing a video display to adapt to the frame rate of the outputting device rather than the other way around, which could traditionally be refreshed halfway through the process of a frame being output by the device, resulting in two frames being shown at once. In order for a device to use G-Sync, it must contain a proprietary G-Sync module sold by NVidia.

|Is it possible to turn the system fans on Full Speed to ensure my notebook remains cool?|
Jun 15, 2017
During normal use the fans will increase speed on their own as heat builds however, many users like to prevent the temps in their notebook from building so they toggle the fans to full speed before stressing the notebook.
If you are just sitting down to intense gaming or starting some heavy workload on your notebook and you want to turn your fans on full speed to keep things nice and cool, simply use the keystroke FN-1 and this will toggle the fans to full speed. Toggle the FN-1 again and the fans will return to their normal speed as you choose.
On the Eurocom Tornado notebook there is a Fan button on the top case that will throttle the fans to full speed and back to normal as it is pushed. This is the only model Eurocom notebook that does not use the FN-1 selection to control fan speed.
