View Full Version : G75sx - Loose video card?

04-24-2014, 05:03 AM
I've been unable to solve my issues, but I know they're video-card related. I have a g75sx (about two years old now), and it has been a beast up until late. I first noticed my issue when I went to perform some 3D functions in Photoshop CC and I noticed my performance was rather choppy. I checked into the settings and noticed that the option to use GPU acceleration was disabled, and I was not able to re-enable it. Next, I noticed that GPU acceleration(CUDA) in Premiere and After Effects were both inaccessible.

I also noticed that my screen will ever-so-occasionally turn off if I bump the front of the computer just under the trackpad.

I'm not a gamer, I use this rig purely for video editing. I am curious to see how I can test my card out, or if I need to re-seat it. Before I open up the case though, I wanted to get those-more-experienced to give me their opinions.

Run Furmark (http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/furmark.html) 1080 full screen full 15 minute Stress test. your Temps should not get much over 80C
You can use Hwinfo64 (http://www.hwinfo.com/download.php) to monitor and log your Load, Temp and fan speeds. This should tell you where you are with your video card.
If your Video card is loose that would indicate a complete loss of the pasting of your card. Or a bad mother board. If your temps are ok and your card is still acting up you'll probably need to document the Issue and RMA it or take to a repair station.
Also if your temps are OK you might want to back up a couple of version with the NVidia drivers. there have been issues reported using the latest drivers. I would suggest Clean install of the latest drivers listed in the Asus Support Download for your OS these drivers have been fully tested in our notebooks to work.
