Sorry for the silly question, can anyone point me where the G752VSK Gaming Centre is? Ive tried:

https://www.asus.com/uk/Laptops/ROG-G752VS-OC-Edition-7th-Gen-Intel-Core/HelpDesk_Download/
https://www.asus.com/uk/supportonly/ROG%20G752VSK/HelpDesk_Download/

Presumably it's titled XG Station?

Yes, silly question...

Both of your links have copies of the ROG Gaming Center (version 2.1.5). Located under the Utilities Subsection.

Presume nothing, its' titled ROG Gaming Center.

The latest version of ROG Gaming Center that can be installed on the G752VSK is version 2.5.10 from the G703GI ASUS Download Center website:

Before you can make the program work, you must have the original ROG Gaming Center installed from your eSupport Folder using the ASUS Installation Wizard. Another download you need is the Turbo Gear Updater (search this forum for a copy).

Good Luck

Thanks jdfrench3. Sorry that was real dense of me. Cool, I wasn't aware that 2.5.10 can be installed, that should be listed on the G752VSK page; though I wouldn't have been able to find it :D.

I only just noticed that when I open the C:\Program Files (x86)\ASUS\LaunchROGGamingCenter.exe (Admin launched) the program runs fine. It must be a bug conflicting with something on my machine.

So what part of ROG Gaming Center is NOT working?

The ROG Gaming Center itself; it will not load when running the ROG Gaming Center.exe.

It will run from C:\Program Files (x86)\ASUS\LaunchROGGamingCenter.exe (Admin launched) but not from the standard ROG Gaming Center.exe. Hopefully that's clear.

Don't really want to keep loading it via post #3.

What concerns me is that majority of the time it's default setting is Extreme on the G752 VSK. Thus putting unnecessary wear on the CPU & GPU. I'm hearing the fans running a lot more when I don't load the ROG Gaming Center & switch it to the normal setting.

Try reloading the ROG Gaming Center software from your eSupport Folder, then update to the latest version.

Hello JD, hello Dalski,

JD you are French ? ;) (so we speak english only for fun)

What is the difference between
https://www.asus.com/fr/supportonly/G752VSK/HelpDesk_Download/
and
https://www.asus.com/Laptops/ROG-G752VS-7th-Gen-Intel-Core/HelpDesk_Download/

i want to OC my laptop (CHIMERA-G752VS-BA548T who is a VSK : see with you in other post)

If i install the bios ROG G752VS OC Edition (7th Gen Intel Core) the OC menu will be open on the bios ? it's compatible with my laptop ?

Hi MonsieurGreen,

Yes I agree it's very unclear. The first link is the G752 VS OC 7th edition Intel Core & the second is the G752VSK. I'm not exactly sure of the difference between the two of them. I was concerned that I made a mistake & posted the same link twice but I didn't. I just checked & the second link (https://www.asus.com/uk/supportonly/ROG%20G752VSK/HelpDesk/HelpDesk/) is definitely the G752VSK.

I tried updating the BIOS (ver 302) via the 1st link (OC 7th edition Intel Core) & it didn't work. I updated via the G752VSK link & that worked (BIOS ver 304). I was hoping it would get my Thunderbolt working but no such luck.

My personal opinion is don't bother - with all the danger associated with it why take the risk? If you do make sure you download your current version of BIOS should things go wrong.

Folks,
First verify what G752 laptop you have. Simply right click on the Start Icon in the lower left corner, then in the Run Window, write dxdiag and press enter. See attachment. Your correct model will be displayed.

If you have a G752VS then you can update your BIOS to version 310.

If you have a G752VSK then you can update your BIOS to version 302.

Dalski,
What is wrong with your ROG Gaming Center, as posted earlier, before being hijacked by MonsieurGreen ?

Sorry for the Hijack.

For information, you can download Turbo Gear Updater here :
on this page : https://www.asus.com/Laptops/ROG-G752VS/HelpDesk_Download/
Choose VS model -> Windows 10 -> Utilities -> Show all, and Turbo Gear Updater

To install the ROG Game Center version 2.5.10 from the G703GI ASUS Download Center, you have to uninstall the previous version installed.
I use a little utilities call geek : https://geekuninstaller.com/
(uninstall ROG Game Center, and not ROG Game Center Core line)

Restart, and now install the version 2.5.10

MonsieurGreen,
Or is that Mr. Green, a little yellow and blue. JDFrench3 is my handle, what nationality I have is of no concern. I have worked all over the world as part of the US Air Force. I know several languages and am knowledgeable in many machine languages and OS. How bout you Mr. Green? Is that your name or your hair color?

Why use another special uninstaller. Simply use the built-in Windows 10 uninstaller. Control Panel/Programs and Features/ROG Gaming Center (this uninstalls all of the ROG Gaming Center, both operational and core.

No worries MonsieurGreen,

jdfrench 3 I don't think you can update the BIOS on a G752VSK to ver 302. I tried it, would not work. For me on my G752VSK it's either BIOS ver 300 or BIOS ver 304 which work. Ver 302 fails to engage.

I put off messing around with the Gaming Centre as long as I could as it was not a high priority for me. Until last week, when I got a warning:
78758
This was quite annoying, as it prevented working on anything else (Retrospectively I think I could've crashed out using the Task Manager) but it was finally time to deal with the problem.
Articles recommended to restart in BIOS and revert to default settings. Don't do this! When reverting to default settings it simply wiped my settings. No boot drives etc... Now it may be that my BIOS had no default settings because I'm running ver 304 (most recent recommended by Asus) & originally came with ver 300, nonetheless BIOS settings more or less blank, not picking up the boot drive (C). I remember I had this hassle when I first got the machine & calling Asus they struggle with this as well but thankfully I got quite good input from Asus who got me as far as they could (should be able to get it to work really but that's a bit hopeful I suppose) but then I managed to get it over the finish line by some more pain staking tweaking & restarting.

When your drives are not showing in the boot menu, you need to disconnect the optical drive as the machine will not pick up a boot drive when 2 drives are attached & the following BIOS settings:

Security > Secure Boot > Disabled
CSM Support > Enabled
Smart Self Test > Off
Sata Configuration > AHCI
Boot Mode > Launch CSM (I'll edit this one later as reading my handwriting it's a bit unclear)


That finally got me back in to the machine. Then hooked up my secondary drive. Now to actually deal with the issue of the ROG Gaming Centre:
Uninstalled the ROG Gaming Centre, downloaded this ver of the Gaming Centre ver 2.1.5 (https://www.asus.com/Laptops/ROG-G752VS-7th-Gen-Intel-Core/HelpDesk_Download/) (for a G752VS 7th Gen Intel Core). Restarted & it's working fine.

Thankfully I didn't need to reinstall Turbo Gear (I must be blind as I can't see where it is on your link MonsieurGreen) & didn't need to keep the Gaming Centre installed whilst the reinstall was taking place.

Hopefully these BIOS settings help someone as Asus couldn't provide me with the exact settings for the machine to pick up the boot drives.

So, you have a G752VS (with 7th Gen CPU). Your BIOS choices are:

G752VS: BIOS 306 or 310 (Not to be used on your laptop)
G752VS (with 7th Gen CPU): BIOS 302 or 304
G752VSK (OC Edition): BIOS 300 or 302

You identify your laptop as a G752VSK but actually a G752VS (with 7th Gen CPU). I have the G752VSK (OC Edition) laptop. If you looked carefully at my picture of dxdiag you would notice I'm running BIOS 304. Yes it's the same BIOS that can be installed on the G752VS (with 7th Gen CPU). Both the G752VS (with 7th Gen CPU) and the G752VSK (OC Edition) have the simular motherboard chipset, Kaby Lake CPU, and GPU. The G752VS BIOS will not work. I think that is why both the G752VS (with 7th Gen CPU) and G752VSK (OC Edition) BIOS are identified as G752VSK BIOS. Adding to the confusion.

I download and install most of my drivers and programs from the IVANRF website. This site uses the ASUS Download Center as it's source but lists drivers and programs by their names (rather than by laptop used. You can find later version drivers and programs of those on your laptop. Most of the time these updated drivers and programs work very well. I have updated all but three ASUS drivers and programs on my G752VSK laptop. Use as needed.

Sorry jdfrench3 having trouble understanding you in the above post, yes I noticed you have ver 304, but the above doesn't seem correct at all? I can only say that ver 302 would not work on my system; which is a G752VSK:

78770

Just trying to put correct info out there to help others should they experience this, as the above statement seems incorrect to me & the reinstallation of Gaming Centre (for me) was not as you had experienced on your machine. I'm not trying to sound argumentative here, though it may be coming across that way. To me it doesn't seem that the correct drivers/ apps are listed on the website properly. If the G752VSK can go to Gaming Centre xxx? Then surely xxx? should be listed in the G752VSK downloads section & only applicable BIOS versions which work on that machine should be available there also.

Maybe I'm missing something or not paying attention properly. Thanks for your input.

EDIT: My G752VSK is supposed to have Thunderbolt, but it doesn't! Can't get it to work no matter what, posted several posts here about it but just can't get it to work. Read countless articles, no luck!

Dalski,

Here is a copy of my list of current ASUS drivers and programs actively installed and properly working on my G752VSK (OC Edition):

I have installed BIOS 300 and 302 found on the G752VSK (OC Edition) ASUS Download page and BIOS 304 found on the G752VS (7th Gen CPU) ASUS Download page. I use the ASUS EZ Flash 3 Utility that's accessed through the BIOS.
