Anyone else having this problem?
It worked fine up until a recent windows update.

Issue:
Some, not all Windows gadgets, notably Asus bundled power4gear and windows weather gadget wont display as they should.
Notice my motherboard monitor is looking fine however the power4gear and weather gadget are not displaying completely...

30566

Now I have tried reverting to default drivers for my laptop with no result.
Easy to fix by simply changing my DPI to 100% but I did rather prefer the 125% setting.

Quick follow up:
Not 100% sure but upon further research the culprit may be IE 11 update, although this description and fix did nothing to help my problem....

That said I dont think im finding the correct xml file that control all my gadgets.
Will post more info if I come across it.

Another follow up:

So as it turns out this was a Internet Explorer 11 issue and simply blowing out your install of IE11 and reverting back to IE 10 will solve the problem...

Or you can live with regular DPI however with the G74sx there is a reason factory defaults to 125%.

Sorry I guess this isn't really an Asus problem & upon further research I was able to solve this common issue but hope this helps users none the less.
