Guess your keyboard problem is related to the software not being supported by Windows 10.

I myself use a Logitech G700s mouse and a Logitech G910 keyboard.

Laptop cooling pads are nice to have if one lives somewhere where it gets pretty hot. Here in Denmark they are more like gadgets as it rarely gets over 25C degrees in summer.

PCDania~

Thanks for saying that. Also for the SSD info on your link.

What's funny is the most difficult adjustment for me personally in using
a Laptop to game on has been the change from using my specialized
Gaming keyboard to a regular keyboard. I have been so used to
using my Wolf Claw Gaming keyboard made for playing FPS
Games that it has really spoiled me. Here's a link to that:

Wolf Claw Type II Keyboard

I got it when it first came out and have used it ever since. It's a huge
advantage not having to lift my hand and having all the number keys at
my fingertips and being able to do so much with my thumb with it's nice
vertical space bar key. So my major issue has been adapting myself to the
Laptop keyboard and getting comfortable with a whole different layout mindset.

Here's two more products I got to Game better with and to cool the Laptop:

ASUS Republic of Gamers GX850 Laser Mouse

HAVIT HV-F2056 15.6″-17″ Laptop Cooler Cooling Pad

Congrats on your new laptop Good to see you got a 17'' model.

Before buying a M.2 SSD make sure to check this:


---QUOTATION---
M.2 Connector (NGFF)
Briefly known as NGFF (next generation form factor after mSATA), M.2 is the current connector standard for mobile SSDs, although it has also been adopted by motherboards as well. M.2 connector can plug in both PCI-Express-based and SATA-based SSDs, but is generally PCI-Express-based only. This is important because, as we explained above, SATA and PCI-Express protocols are not inter-compatible. The only way to confirm compatibility between your motherboard M.2 slot and your M.2 SSD is to read the respective product specifications first: if they match PCI-Express-to-PCI-Express or SATA-to-SATA, you're good to go! With the launch of 9-series motherboards, the ROG website and forums will also keep a list of M.2 connector protocols
---END QUOTATION---

Shadow of Chernobyl on a Laptop ( 1.0006 )

I've always wanted a Gaming Laptop. However when they first evolved capable of playing the Games I liked, they were way too expensive for me. A few years passed, as prices went down and technology improved, finally a point came where the most I wanted to spend was met with the minimum requirements I hoped to get. I wanted a GTX 1060 but to get one, I would have to sacrifice a great display, great speakers, be a 15" or be in some kind of color scheme or theme I found distasteful. I didn't want flash and bright gimmicky colors. I really wanted a DVD drive too which the low end GTX 1060s didn't have in the brands I liked for the money I wanted to spend.

I originally was shooting for around $999 but was also looking for a bargain around this past Christmas. I found one with a great display, great speakers, a DVD drive but only with a GTX 1050 Ti. When it came up with a promo price reduction of $100 and an additional discount of $10, the price of $839 was just too good to pass up. So now I'm doing 3 things I have never done before: Playing Stalker: Shadow of Chernobyl using the 1.0006 Patch, using an Intel i7 CPU and using a Gaming Laptop.

Here's what I got. My model is the ASUS FX73VE-WH71 with a 17.3" IPS screen, Intel Core i7 7th Gen 7700HQ ( 4 cores ) at 2.80 GHz, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti with 4Gb memory and 8 Gb DDR4 System Memory with a 1 TB HDD Windows and 10 Home 64-Bit Gaming Laptop. It's just like the one shown here except there's no "5" between the 7 & 3 on mine. https://www.asus.com/Laptops/ASUS-FX753VE/

I'm very pleased with the quality of the graphics, while playing SoC at the highest settings with great picture and sound. I'm going to add an M.2 SSD drive soon and maybe bump the system memory up to 16Gb.

* * * * *

So what I'm going to be doing here is mainly just talking about the Laptop experience, a few thoughts here and there about the Game and I'm also going to be doing a little Modding. I've played the Game countless times without Modding so I already know what to expect. My main goal is a simple Repair Mod so I can use the unique weapons. After all, what's the point in the Game giving them to you if you can't use them for very long due to most already having wear? More on this soon.
