Got yest G74SX, nice killing machine thanks Asus!

but got a small problem, i'm using external mouse and i set in touchpad properties ""disable touch pad while external USB mouse...." http://imageshack.us/f/220/89262828.jpg/

it was working untill i restart laptop, now i whent to prperties again, did uncheck > apply and check apply and touch pad still working :( In Live Update nothing is available to download all is up to date.

2nd think, is there any possibilities to make recovery DVD on usb flash drive? I'm not using CD/DVD almost 2 years :) During creating Recovery CD only posibility to use DVD =(

I don't know about a recovery flash drive, but you can download the windows 7 disc image in Chastity's sticky for the G-series laptops and apply that to a flash drive. Then you can copy all of the relevant apps from Asus that you use. It's actually a quicker way to do a clean install than using the 4 DVDs.

i have partition "RECOVERY", so i guess from this partition asus will make recovery DVD's so if i copy this to usb flash & if one day windows will crash i can reinstall it?

this map have almost all files tht normal windows need to install, just need conformation ^^

If you want to use the Recovery partition you just press F9 during boot; No DVD is required for this operation. The recovery DVD is an alternative for when you can't or don't want to use the partition.

And do not delete the Recovery partition. The DVD's you make are useless without it.

Personally, I removed the AI Recovery app, as I find it useless, and I use Acronis to make images to external HDD's.
