New G75VW from best buy. Finished initial hardware changes now onto looking at what asus updates should go in.
For some reason the Asus Live Update utility just hangs ... never really starts after the prompt ( do you want to allow the following program to make changes ) ...
So anyway I am looking at manually checking Asus support downloads for G75VW.
First thing I notice is my BIOS version is 206 but the only download at all for BIOS on support is 207 dated 4/13/2012 ... that seems kind of funky shouldn't they also have base release of BIOS? I downloaded zip file for BIOS and was thinking it would have a read me that included what fixes are in there but nada.
Second thing I notice is that Via Audio has 2 files for download first one is the ( older ) current installed audio driver and the second is is 188.8.131.5200. I tried doing the device manager update driver and search internet for current one but it reported I had the best one ( still old ) so downloaded newer one and did update again pointing at where I extracted zip file and now it is more current.
A lot of people are unhappy with G75 initial sound ( leans to left side and some think subwoofer is also putting out higher frequencies ) so perhaps this Via Audio updated driver fixes that?
The new Via Audio driver is dated 3/21/2012 ( but says 4/25/2012 in support download info ) so perhaps this is a fix to the sound that is not included in the first shipping G75VW units?
How risky is applying BIOS fix?
Anyone got a good reference document for how to tackle updating ROG laptop from factory shipped out version? Should we get something going specific for the G75VW?
Any and all ideas appreciated! ( Like why the Asus update might be hanging ).
