With Windows 8, everything works fast, except those annoying issues that you can't copy files sometimes, file Is in use errors etc.. (while they are not... and not caused by a Virus scanner, since I don't have 1 enabled)

When I installed Windows 7 on the laptop.
my internet speed went down from 40Mb to 360Kb (wireless)
and 4 from the 8 CPU's are in PARK mode.

I tried setting the power scheme on high performance, but it keeps the processors in Park mode.

Any suggestions for that, and a big suggestion as of why my Wireless is so slow ?

i think G75VX have not provide Win 7 driver, so your drivers is not offical, so i do not recommend you remove Win 8 and install Win 7.

Well, I followed the guide, and others seems to gotten it to work.
Wonder how the speed is from other users then for Windows 7.
Unless it's because of the CPU parking that the Internet speed is so slow.
I need to unpark them all.. but that's a job for next weekend

Thank you.

Do have an odd story...
Before I had this laptop, I had an HP one... (ASUS rules over HP btw..)
Anyways... that one came with Windows 7.. and did not have the problem.
Once I update to Windows 8, and decided that I hated it, I went back to Windows 7..
and..... I had the CPU parking all the sudden..
since my warranty was up, I sold the laptop, once I unparked everything.. with the thought that the autostepping part in the processor
was shot..
but now I am having the same problems... it's almost like something got updated in the BIOS somehow..
