View Full Version : G73SW GPU Strange Issue

08-20-2012, 06:24 PM

I just bought g73sw all things are working awesome but gpu acting strange on AC line its on P0 (gaming), but when i take the ac line out it goes to P12 instead of P8. I have tired changing drivers, nvidia inspector to force the p-state but no use its stuck at P12 on battery (gaming, idle or software)

I dont really know what to do, the only thing i think of is moding the vbios which i never did before.

If I read this correctly, Line-in=0, 0 draw on the battery.
Line-out=12 (full? draw on the battery?)
Is the screen brightness on 100% ???

Why is your target 8? (excuse my ignorance in this)
But it appears to me that lowering the brightness while
on battery would accomplish this .. keep us posted.c.
