Common Questions

Can I overclock my Razer Blade Pro 17" (2015)?

Razer laptops are carefully crafted and its components are tuned to give the best performance under the most demanding gaming conditions. We do not recommend over-clocking your CPU, GPU, and/or RAM as these alter the delicate balance of performance and reliability of the system. There is associated risk of damage to crucial components if unauthorized changes are made, which will result in voiding manufacturer’s warranty.

Will I void the warranty by opening or upgrading my components of my Razer Blade Pro 17” (2015) by myself?

Any damages or issues caused during installation or as a result of incompatible parts being used are not covered under the warranty and may void the warranty coverage.


During shut down or reboot, my system will be stuck at the message “Configuring Windows Features 100% - Please do not turn off your computer” intermittently, even though I have never performed a Windows Update operation.

When you see this message, Windows is performing an automatic uninstallation of unused language packs to free up more space on your system.

The duration depends on how many languages are being removed, as it will accumulate if the system is never shut down or rebooted for a period of time.

To avoid from seeing this message again, you can perform the following workaround procedures to manually remove the language packs that you don’t need:

  1. On your Desktop, press “Start” and type “lpksetup”.

  2. Click on “Uninstall display languages”.

  3. Select the languages you wanted to remove and click “Next”.

  4. A progress bar will appear to give feedback on the language pack uninstallation process.

These steps might take some time (more than 1 hour). It’s advisable to run this when the system is not actively in use.
