Hello, I tried looking, I am sure I just failed to find it.
I am attempting to update my video card after restoring my laptop. (Asus G73JH)
It is currently v. 8.683.0.0 12/17/2009. This is also the version that results from downloading the newest driver from ASUS website. With this version I can run most game, I however can not run anything that touches OpenGL.
I tried getting the one off of AMD, when I do install it I wind up with a newer version, but my resolution is incorrect and although OpenGL games will now run, anything I run does't render graphics (just no longer crashes on launch).
If anyone knows the answer I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you.

HI, could you provide us game name that kind of openGL game you install and also tell me your VGA setting.

Remove your driver completely and install nVidia drivers provided for your graphic card (custom clean install) and then report back. I saw a lot messy installed gc drivers and conflicts with same during servicing other ppl computers.

I have to G73jh also and it does not have nVidia we have ati radeon 5870 gpu
Anyhow updateing the drivers will not work until you update the vbios from 203 to 213 there is a thread http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?519-G73Jh-GSOD-Vbios-Update&country=&status=
Once your vbios is updated then you can go to ati and get the new drivers this should take you to the update.Make sure you get the mobility radeon 5xxx series. http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/Pages/radeonmob_win7-64.aspx

Hope this helps
