The Flex 5G Saga continues!

2021-04-15, 6:58 AM



This laptop is so hard to work with and find information about but I make it work. I'm going to start a club! I just noticed for the second time I never installed my normal anti virus and I found that strange so I attempted to do it again and then i remembered why. Nothing will install on it LOL. Loved downloading like 5 antivirus for them all to say they didn't work. 


So it does have Windows security I guess that's goin have to do if I don't have any other options but I had a serious question.



With the snapdragon being the way it is and its lets say... non abilities-does this also mean that a virus would have to be made specifically for the snapdragon to affect it or even work? I mean they are just programs that require the same language to work as every other program that wont work on here. 


Or no such luck i can only have the windows security and no one loves my flex 5g?

Hello Dokes,




Apologies for the late reply. You may kindly share your machine type model MTM (ex. 81C70000RK) from the sticker as it would help us detail more about your machine variant.


Update us soon as convenient.
