View Full Version : Strange Issue with G75VX and 670MX

So I know this was probably covered somewhere in these forums but I haven't found a solution to my problem yet. I just recently purchased a G75VX and it has been nothing but problems. I am currently running the windows default drivers that are installed
when you uninstall and reinstall the 670MX. I had to do this because whenever I updated the drivers to the most recent on the
Nvidia website or even the ones on the Asus product page, the laptop won't start normally. The Nvidia driver crashes non stop
until I get a bluescreen. No other solution works, besides uninstalling and reinstalling. I am currently running Windows 7
because, having never used nor trusted 8, I believed that was the source of the problem. Newegg issued me an RMA slip that I'm going to decide if I want to use this weekend. I believe that a replacement won't help. So if anyone can help me solve this
problem before the weekend I'd be forever greatful.

Okay, when you install the nVidia drivers do you check the box "perform a clean install" in custom install options?

This option will uninstall all the old drivers and software first, then install the new drivers fresh!

ASUS have not provide Win 7 driver for G75VX, if you send RMA, i think it will reinstall back to Win 8.

The GTX-670MX will support Windows 7 nvidia drivers >>>Nvidia Driver Download (http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us)

Yes, I did do a clean install whenever I updated or downgraded the drivers. I eventually resolved the problem by contacting Newegg and getting
an RMA slip. It's on it's way back to them and I should receive a new one in a week or two. I know the one they are going to send me will have Windows 8, but this time I won't bother trying to change it back to Windows 7. I just want to be able to run my AutoCAD software for school and some games like minecraft to pass the time. If the new one has the same problem then I will contact support again and expect a refund rather than another replacement. It failed to run any games not matter what I did, and the only way I could "watch" youtube videos is when I disabled the video card completely and used the intel graphics and even then the video would lag to the point where I would only hear the video. So it's only a matter of time till I get the replacement. And if it has the same problem, I'll probably flip a table or two. Cheers to a long wait.

Well I got an email from Newegg today. They will not replace the laptop because it has Windows 7 which is not the original operating system so they will not work on it at all. They told me to contact the manufacturer, Asus, which I have done already. So I believe I'm now stuck with an overweight brick of a laptop. It will be another 5-10 days before I get it back. I don't know what else I can do to solve this problem and the idea of throwing it from my 5th floor dorm room window keeps playing over and over in my head. So I hope one of you has an idea of what to do or I'm going to be having a "lovely" chat with Asus, again.

I think your best bet is to clean install window 8 your self or send it to Asus Repair and let them reinstall it to factory condition and work from there. This time use backtracker to make a restore USB Chip before you attempt the downgrade to windows 7. Or just live with windows 8, were only a month or so away from Win 8.1 which hopefully will bring Win 8 back up to win 7 standards?

Ya, I have access to Windows 8 through my college, so as soon as I get it back from Newegg I'll restore it to factory and fix from there.

asus does not recomment you downgrade your OS, i think for that very reason. it would be better if you go with 8.

I really don't get all the people for some reason downgrading their PC to windows 7 and having all kinds of trouble and pain from it. As usual a few people spread silly rumors or use poor reasoning and they talk others into thinking the same way LOL and doing dumb things like this for some reason. Some people just don't handle change very well. You can "trust" windows 8 it works just fine, unlike your now destroyed, out of warranty, brand new computer. Message here...don't believe the hype.

Hope it works out and you get it working again, I would pull that 7 out of there and forget about the past, try to recover windows 8 if possible at this time.

Well these G 75 55 series were Win 7, before win 8 came out last OCT. Many here have downgraded to from Win 8 to Win 7 successfully. Several protocols have been developed to accomplish this And Rewben has collect all these Guides and upgrade notes in this sticky Thread (http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?28758-GUIDE-G55-G75-Upgrade-Notes&country=&status=) many of us do not like the current Win 8 for good reasons! MS is coming forward with 8.1 that may make some of us consider moving up?
As to Why, these are Gaming Note Books most gamers are looking to get the best performance from there equipment that's why!

Again someone starts a rumor way at the outset and everyone starts thinking its fact LOL....happens with all kinds of things. Don't believe everything you read on the internets Sonny.

Why thank you, *******. Actually it's not destroyed, nor is it out of warranty. Shall I continue about how you typed before thinking and made yourself look dumb? Nobody cares about your opinion. The reason why a lot of people downgrade is due to software not being optimized for 8. I have 8 back on here now, no it didn't cost me a thing, you prick. I'm going to do more testing to see if there is still an issue with the video card. If there is, it will be going to Asus this weekend. If not, I'm going to happily play some BF3 while I have to listen to my history professor drone on about the American Revolution. Thanks to the people on here that have been very helpful, as for you TLAVY, you can suck a fat one. Toodles.

vitriol

You WILL treat fellow forum members with more respect than this. You don't have to like them and you don't have to be cheery but you will conduct yourself better or you will be banned.

Consider this your only warning.

It's not really necessary to be condescending. You can deliver your arguments in a less aggressive manner and you'll be less likely to provoke the reaction you just received. Plus people will be more receptive rather than being turned away by your tone. No, you didn't break any rules but people could do with putting a bit more thought into the words they post on the Internet. Just a thought.

Just wanted to let everyone know that I got the laptop back some time ago. It was a defective graphics card. Overall great Customer Service from Asus, so for those who made previous statements without thinking or had their feelings hurt, you can suck it. Thank you to the rest, the ones that actually offered creative and useful advice. Done with this forum.
