Is your Lenovo Y720 laptop CPU stuck at 0.78Ghz? Here’s how to fix it

Hi everyone, Recently, I came into this issue where my Lenovo Y720 laptop, with an Intel Core i7-7700HQ CPU seems to be stuck at running at 0.78Ghz even when the power options are set to High Performance. This issue would persist even when the machine is shut down and powered on again, for some reason. The task manager looks like this in this case: Laptops, especially those with dedicated graphics, would throttle down the CPU sometimes if the temperature gets…

The Lenovo Y510p Replacement Fan from Rangale

The Lenovo Y510p Replacement Fan from Rangale

Hi everyone, Today, we will be seeing a replacement fan from Rangale for the Lenovo Y510p laptop. This is my 3nd replacement fan as 2 has already failed previously: The last replacement fan actually lasted a whole year, which at least was something. I’m not sure how long the new one will last, but we’ll see since it’s a different brand than the last 2. This fan also comes in a nice branded box, unlike the generic past one. The…

Collaborating in the exhale project – Part 2

Collaborating in the exhale project – Part 2

Hi everyone, Yesterday, I began working on my second collaboration for the exhale xHE-AAC USAC encoder. This time, I worked on adding an argument to print the software version on the console. The above is the main software, printing its information as well as how to use it. There was no option to print the version only. Ideally, I just wanted a way to print something like exhale version 1.0.3 …..so that I can easily parse it as I do…

My first GitLab contribution: exhale encoder

My first GitLab contribution: exhale encoder

Hi everyone, Yesterday, I collaborated on the exhale xHE-AAC Audio Encoder to add compatibility to compile the project on MinGW on Windows. The exhale project is an Open-Source xHE-AAC USAC encoder. It allows you to encode wave (WAV) files to M4A using this specific codec. Originally, compilation on Windows was done using Visual Studio, and this worked fine, but when compiling it on MSYS2/MinGW, it gave some issues, specifically: It also complained about fprintf_s, so some changes needed to be…

Ritek Mini CD-R: Part 2

Ritek Mini CD-R: Part 2

Hi everyone, Today, I burned a few more Ritek Mini CD-R media, where I found out they have a surface issue: I didn’t realized this, but it seems to be a plant manufacture problem. I opened another of the 100-pack I have and it have the same problem. The problem is that the data was burning fine, with no errors on my Lite-On iHAS524, but it failed to verify on some parts of the disk, as it was approaching the…

Ritek Mini CD-R Photos and Quality Tests

Hi everyone, Yesterday, I received some Pocket/Mini CD-R I purchased on eBay, which were being sold for cheap due to them not being branded or not having their specs listed. The seller was selling 3 packs of 100 unbranded silver surface Mini CD-R, and since the price was lower compared to other branded media, I decided to buy all 3. The discs were wrapped with no spindle. The discs have a silver surface: Here we can see a single CD-R:…
