View Full Version : Problems with new asus g73sw

Dvd movies does not work they lag too badly neither do divx movies work, they lag too badly and gta4 does not work, lags even with the worst quality settings. Strangely battlefield bad company 2 works, although lags a little bit. And grand theft auto san andreas works with best quality video settings with no lag.

I downloaded new ndvidia drivers from their website and have done the asus driver updates. I will return this laptop if it will not begin to work, I bought it 1 1/2 weeks ago.

Does anyone here have this model and if you do, have you experienced similar problems?

1) What program are you using to playback the videos? Are you using hardware acceleration? I hope it isn't VLC.
2) Have you updated your Intel INF as well, if ever?

1: Now I tried windows media player and it works fine,before I used vlc(it runs fine on another computer) and gom player, neither worked. The option beside battery saving mode "high performance" is on.

2. I used the asus automatic update, did it update that intel inf as well or should I update it manually?

Thank you

Ok now i found out why gta4 is lagging, from notebookreviews forums, the g73sw has problems with throttling the cpu and here is the fix http://www.techinferno.com/downloads/?did=1 . now it doesnt lag when i have low video settings.
