So I just purchased a Medion Erazer Beast laptop. https://www.overclockers.co.uk I have issues.
Can't get into bios. This seems to be a thing with Medion stuff as I've seen threads about this. I really want to turn the AMD integrated gpu off as the temps on the CPU are already very high (usually around 86c). And my NVIDIA control panel is lacking the usual options like DRS). Secondly this 3070 laptop gpu either works well or it does'nt. What I mean is DLSS just doesn't work. If I have a game running at 45fps and I turn DLSS on my FPS increases to....45fps, sometimes worse. I appreciate it won't perform like a desktop 3070 but DLSS should work. Otherwise performance is good. But I'm not happy with a poor DLSS performance. And I have the latest drivers.
I'm not sure if anything can be done to be honest. I was suspicious that £1399 was cheap for a laptop with a 3070. But if it's a real cheap OEM version then that would explain it.
Getting into BIOS would be a start though.

I have listed on my settings as having a High Definition Audio Device from Microsoft, on my 3070, neither of the lists has this mentioned from your link of type of audio cards

Hi, I'm sure your performance issue can be resolved if you haven't already sorted it. I am very happy with my laptop's performance. As far as the GPU goes, it's one of the more powerful mobile 3070s! I think the standard power rating is 90W TDP / 125W TGP which can be boosted further to 140W of total power! (Using the control center). Some other mobile versions can be much lower/less powerful.

Ok got the audio working but control centre still doesn’t show. I had uninstalled it to reinstall before but that may mean I uninstalled the wrong thing. My fault for jumping the gun. So I’m going to need a fix.
I will say it’s never a good idea to force bios updates for this very reason. I’ve lost a whole days work today and I still need a fix. Without control centre the notebook is virtually unusable.

Assuming your issue started with the recent Bios update that was forced on us in the last week via Windows Update (and was broken) you need to look here for a download you run that will fix it.
Itt also has a FAQ for the control center issue if you have it but I can't get it to work so right now I have no control center which means I'm seriously hampered in performance.

Yes, @slackbladder , I too only had 2 modes in the control center, but now i have sorted out the audio, it has gone up to 3 again, with gaming available. Sorry to hear about you still not getting yours fixed. Like you said, their is the FAQ on it, but if you uninstalled it before fixing audio, unlike me, you might have removed a file - I'm just following you guys on this, I'm kinda new
