Razer Blade Stealth 13” Early 2019 Support
|Where can I get my security update for Razer Blade system?|
|Razer is aware of the vulnerabilities discovered by external researchers on some of the Intel microprocessors installed in our Razer Blade laptop line. We are closely collaborating with Intel to address potential vulnerabilities before they can even be exploited.
As part of our commitment to customers, Razer's engineers are working with Intel to address these issues with firmware updaters. You may refer to the table below to see if your specific Razer Blade model is affected and where to get its corresponding updater.
Note: The links in the table below contain the installation guides that will walk you through the installation process. The installation guide will also contain the download link to the specific updater. We will be updating this table periodically. If you are unable to locate a fix for your particular Blade system, it is possible that your laptop may not be affected.
|My system has encountered a BSOD (Blue Screen) with the stopcode VIDEO TDR FAILURE (NVLDDMKM.SYS). What should I do?|
We have released a new NVIDIA graphics driver (v431.65) to address the BSOD issue that some users have faced with their Blades. You can download the new driver via this link. Once the download is complete, extract the zip file to the destination folder of your choice.
Install the NVIDIA DCH driver by opening the "P30448_DC" folder, run "setup.exe", and follow the on-screen instructions. If you wish to install the GeForce Experience companion application, open the "P30448_WIN32UX" folder, run "setup.exe" and follow the on-screen instructions.
Note: This fix will work if you are running your Blade with Windows 1803 or later versions.
NVIDIA graphics driver (v431.65) supported models:
|I adjusted the system keyboard backlight brightness by using the (Fn+F10/F11) shortcuts keys and performed the system restart or sleep/wake operation. However, the keyboard brightness settings are not saved. How do I keep my preferred settings?|
|The keyboard brightness will be saved if Synapse is running.
To save the keyboard brightness, use Razer Synapse 3.0 (Option is located at “SYSTEM” tab > “LIGHTING”).
Note: The system will always be at default full brightness when the power adapter is plugged in and in 50% brightness level when the system is on battery.
|Will I overcharge my battery if I leave it plugged in even when it is at 100%?|
|The Razer Blade series uses a lithium-ion (Li-On) polymer battery. Though this is not exactly a Windows feature, overcharging Li-ion batteries is not a problem and does not affect the battery life span. The Blade laptops have an internal circuit to stop charging at full charge to avoid overcharging, and will only start re-charging when the battery hits 95%.|
|What should I do to maintain the power adapter’s good condition and extend its life span?|
|To keep your power adapter in good condition and extend its life span, check this guide.|
