ROG G75VW Windows 7 problems!
Hey guys,

I'm asking your help guys. I have an GW75VW with windows 7 on it. All updates done, set for performance, i defrag her, ccleaner etc. But actually it takes like a full minute to even boot her up while in msconfig almost no programs are starting up.

Just reformating and clean install is no option because all the programs needs to be installed with serials by the company themselves, and I don't have time for that (they need to do it while i'm working, and i need the computer so ).

I bought myself a ssd samsung 840 1tb and it flies now, but still, it takes like 20 seconds to start her up with an ssd... Any idea guys?

However, i never really removed those asus programs on it, could they be the disaster after this major slowdown?

20 seconds on a SSD with software loading is not slow, Mine takes about the same. If you want faster boots you'll need to use Hybrid Shutdown

It's not Slow.

But if you really want to boot fast.

Download Windows 8 and start up time is 1-2 seconds.

Or try to play with msconfig to start up fast.
But check videos about it before you change values because it could mess up you
Re pc if you do it wrong make sure to back up files 2 before doing this.

MSconfig is oke, there are like 6 programs booting up, and they shouldn't cause a drain. THey are installed on an Acer laptop, which is a slower one than my rog. Everything is oke over there.. I'm at a loss actually.

anny virus that's on you're PC? check you're system with AVAST or anny other good antivirus.
Boot settings in bios are good 2?

Never came on bios.I'm running norton internet security 2014 and checked everything with antimalware. Still thanks! I'm thinking perhaps wrong drivers?

There is the problem you have Norton anything norton is gonna make your pc slow get ride of it. Make sure you have only one anti virus running and 20 seconds for an ssd is not slow at all. But anyhow get rid of norton and get a free one. These are only my opinions but I know a lot of people get rid of Norton right away. The only driver or program I have from asus on my g75 is the via sound driver/program and the f key functions but other than that its just a fresh install. I hope this helps you any.

Guys, I appreciate the fast responses that you are giving! Lots of forums could learn from this!

Norton is indeed a slow woman on your pc and I'm a massive performance freak but I must say, this latest one, is actually very very fast. I tried AVG, Avast, Comodo, Antivir etc. To be honest, I tried the free version of Bitdefender and Norton and Norton came out to be the fastest and the best. SO i'm just gonna try it for a year.

I will use Revo Uninstaller(removes also the registry of the programs) to remove the bloatware of the ROG. Install some newest drivers etc and let's hope it will work a bit better.

Yes I agree about NIS, since 2010 they have figured it out and have not been the resource hog that they had been I the past.

Yes I have NIS, and my G75 is not slow at all!
Norton has really got there act together now, they have listened to feedback and it is not the resource hog that it was in the past.
I'm running running Windows 7 also, and my SSD screams, boots up in 18 seconds!

Hi everyone,
I know that most of you have a lot of problems for migrating from preinstalled Windows 8 (HDD) to your new SSD in ASUS G75VW-AH71. I had it too and I think I solved it. This is the way that works for me and hope it will be useful for you guys too.
1. Belarc Advisor is one of my favorite free system information tools, and you can find the product key of your Windows 8. Download and install it and then Run it. It gives you and HTML file that can be opened by any Explorer and you can see your Windows 8 Product Key. (Honestly, you don’t need this key because your key has been saved in your BIOS too. But it is a safe way to have your key and write it in a place. You can download Belarc Advisor v8.4 from here (http://www.belarc.com/Programs/advisorinstaller.exe).
2. Also, you need to have a Windows 8 (RTM) Build 9200 (32bit + 64bit) MSDN. Here is the link that you can download it by torrent.
Windows 8 (RTM) Build 9200 (32bit + 64bit) MSDN (http://thepiratebay.ac/torrent/7990261/Windows_8_(RTM)_Build_9200_(32bit___64bit)_MSDN___ Activator)
Don’t worry about Serial number or anything. We use or serial number that comes with our laptop and it is legal.
3. Put this Windows 8 (RTM) Build 9200 (32bit + 64bit) MSDN DVD in DVD write.
4. Now you are ready for Process.
5. Remove the 750GB HDD from computer. (I am sure you can do it easily)
6. Install your New SSD in other place for hard in back of your laptop.
7. Now is the part that you should be careful: We should change BIOS and UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface)
8. Start computer and press Delete button many times to go to your BIOS screen.
9. Go to Advanced menu and then check SATA Configuration menu. Now you should see only your SSD and DVD Writer.
10. Now go back to Boot menu and disable Fast Boot.
11. Enable Lunch CSM.
12. Enable Lunch PXE OpROM.
13. In Boot Option #1 select DVD Writer.
14. Go to Security menu, and then select Secure Boot Control and Disable it. (Important)
15. Go to Save & Exit menu and click on Save Changes and Exit.
16. Now your system tries to install Windows 8 from DVD.
17. You should not have any problem with installation of DVD. It doesn’t require any Key for windows because the key of your original windows has been saved in system and it automatically add to your windows. Later when you connect to internet, the windows will be activated. (It is simple and you shouldn’t do anything)
18. After finishing Installation of Windows 8, you can download and install all software and drivers of ASUS G75VW from manufacture site. (Driver and Support Link (http://www.asus.com/ROG_ROG/G75VW/#support))
19. Your process is finished now and you can enjoy your windows
20. For adding you other original 750GB Hard, you will go to your BIOS again and go to Save & Exit menu. Then select Restore Defaults and later select Save Changes and Exit.
21. Now check your windows again. Everything should work fine.
22. Shut Down the computer.
23. Remove Battery
24. Install your original 750GB Hard drive.
25. Put back the Battery.
26. Restart your Computer.
27. Now you should see your new hard drive in My Computer.


I didn’t delete or format my original 750GB hard, and base on that, I have the ability to Dual boot to my original preinstalled Windows 8 and my new one that I installed it in SSD. (Definitely I usually use my SSD one because it is extraordinarily fast near 5 sec for reaching to my Desktop screen!!!!!)

For selecting which OS boot first you should go to your BIOS and then Boot menu and under Boot Option Priorities, select Boot Option #1 and then select your OS from (SSD or HDD)

What if you had windows 8. Then figured out how to turn off the Secure Boot Control and fast boot. Installed windows 7 and had it for awhile. Now I want to go and get an SSD and install windows 8 on it again. Do I do just what your instructions say? Or do I enable the secure boot control and/or fast boot then install windows 8?
Thanks for your help.

I would leave them turned off CSM Turned on until you complete your Win 8.1 clean install, After your booting and no other problems arise then if you want to use Secure boot etc. enable them. If you have a SSD you won't need fast boot
