How do I fix display tearing or distortion during gaming?
Display tearing is what happens when a screen shows bits and pieces of multiple frames at the same time. In the video, this creates a “torn” look as edges of objects do not line up. This can be caused by outdated drivers or running incompatible programs.
To resolve these issues, you may try the following:
Ensure that you have updated to the latest version of Windows. Click the Start button, go to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update, then select “Check for Updates”. For more information, visit Microsoft Support.
If updating the drivers do not resolve the issue, follow the steps outlined below:
Open the NVIDIA Control Panel and navigate to 3D Settings > Manage 3D Settings > Global Settings. Under "Settings", look for "Vertical sync and click the dropdown box beside it and select "On".
Open the game where you experienced the issue and look for the video or display settings. Once opened, try to find the setting that enables v-sync and make sure it is enabled.
If you still experience display tearing, the issue might be caused by your NVIDIA driver. Uninstall your NVIDIA driver and install a stock version.
If the above steps did not resolve your issue and you have determined that it is not being caused by a third-party application, consider doing a system recovery or factory reset.
BIOS error message during installation

The issue is related to the product code of some devices, found in the BIOS. The firmware is correct but may not install because the product code embedded in the BIOS does not match the firmware updater.
The firmware houses a list of applicable product codes so that it knows which units to allow itself to install on. If the product code in the BIOS of the laptop does not match that of the updater's list of approved devices, it will return an error.

The Blade laptops have an internal circuit to stop charging at full charge to avoid overcharging, and will only start recharging when the battery hits 95%.
