View Full Version : G75 video card issue or driver

05-10-2012, 01:36 AM
I recently purchased the g75 and i tested a game out to see how it went and when i played wow on ultra im getting 10 fps maybe and there is a black flicker that comes on the screen every 15 to 20 secs. The graphics card is the 670m btw.

OK so just an update what happens is ill have 60ps while playing ultra then all of a sudden my screen will flicker and it will go down to 5 fps and i will lag then it will go back up to 60 the flicker again rinse and repeat.

While this happens i notice my GPU clock going from 620Mhz to 60 Mhz while this happens back and forth

Are you using the official ASUS drivers from our G75 product page or from Nvidia?

I used the drivers that where on the computer already, i havent downloaded any new driver becuase the ones for the 670m do not exist at the moment.

What is happening is it looks like the clock like i said on the gpu ges up to 620 during the game and its al fine then the screen will flicker and it drops down to 70 mhz then it will go up again and my fps is good but then it flicker and goes down again to 70 mhz and horrible fps.

I'm having the exact same issue with a new g75. Any update on this thread? Did you get the issue resolved?

There is another link here somewhere where we have decided communally that the anti-virus is horrendous for these computers. If you switch to Microsoft Security Essentials which is free it should dramatically if not totally fix the problem. I had this same problem you were talking about and this fixed it instantly.

Here is the link....

Its a lot of reading but skip to the later parts and you will see the anti-virus is actually causing the problems.

This issue sounds like it may be related to this thread: http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?14960-G75VW-random-audio-and-graphics-spike&p=106744&viewfull=1#post106744

Are you running McAfee Antivirus? If not, what Antivirus, AntiMalware, Firewall, Remote Access, or Disk Management software have you installed to your system?

Alternatively, throttling could play a role in the reported FPS drops. ThrottleStop may provide a workaround.

EDIT: I guess we all had the same idea at about the same time...
