Hey guys !

I bought my G53Jw last year and it's been doing just fine until three months.

At first, I got random deep freezes (maybe once or two per day).

The freeze is only occuring while playing games like BF3, Skyrim or while using the new Photoshop CS6 Beta (or anything with 3D in it)

After having peeked at forums, I went in my Event Viewer and saw a lot of :

------
A corrected hardware error has occurred.

Component: PCI Express Root Port
Error Source: Advanced Error Reporting (PCI Express)

Bus:Device:Function: 0x0:0x3:0x0
Vendor ID:Device ID: 0x8086:0xd138
Class Code: 0x30400

The details view of this entry contains further information.
------

To try to fix it I did :

- Swapped drivers to default micrsoft and unbranded drivers (Standard Root Port) (temporary fix, sometimes it works for the day sometimes not)
- Installed Intel latests chipset drivers
- Clean install (worked for about a week then it came back)

Maybe I should RMA it but since it's also my work computer, I'd prefer a fix that I could perform myself.

Any clue ?

Thanks !
