View Full Version : G73JH Problem

Hello everyone!
I have a problem with my Asus G73JH, bought it from bestbuy. Approximately for 2 months everything was great. But 1 week ago problems with laptop started. Now I can't run on it 3d apps like games + it's hard even to surf the web. Every time when I do these things - I get blue, white, gray screen and the laptop locks, sometimes I can see green, blue, red or purple pixels on the screen or vertical stripes. Don't know why but sometimes when pixels happen - swithing the laptop to sleeeping mode and then turning it on helps(but only for 5-10 minutes and then the problem appears again).
Here's a video of running 3dmark test (so you can see this issue) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3DwTs1g1YT0
Bios 211, flashed to last vbios, + last ati drivers 10.12(reinstalled them with driver sweeper). Tried Windows recovery - didn't help. Don't know how to fix it... Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Now small horizontal green-purple stripes begin to show up even when drivers are not installed... anyone suggestions? probably hardware?

Yeah, sounds like the graphics accelerator is either overheating or otherwise crapping out. You can try taking a can of air to it to see if something got clogged in the cooling system but at 2 months I'd make them fix it.

1) You can try updating your DirectX to June 2010
2) If you are overclocking, dial it back to stock settings of 700/1000
3) If you are running at stock clocks, and 10.12 WHQL, and you have latest vBIOS, then you may want to RMA the GPU.
