Has anyone experienced the videos between missions to be choppy? (The ones that show the map and the next destination)

Yes I have actually. But I was using another gaming laptop which had a GeForce 8800m GTS 512MB. I figured it was my weak graphic card that was causing the choppiness. I will need to test it on my new Asus to see if I still have that.

Which laptop model? It's weird that the gane plays fine but cutscenes don't . G73jh?

I have the same system, never saw anything like that.

Did you ever update your Wifi driver? This wifi driver causes problem on and offline. See the sticky about the Atheros driver.

Also, what nvidia driver are you using?

See signature. wifi upgraded and nvidia is the original, one that is on the support site.

Well you updated your Wifi driver, that's what I meant.

Why won't you update your nVidia driver. I'd do that before I posted on a forum for assistance? You need to realize that the driver versions ASUS shipped with these units are NOT optimal.

Thanks, I will try that. Which one from your link should I get?

What's the proper procedure:

1. Uninstall driver and remove so it does not reinstall on reboot
2. reboot
3. run setup ?

Well, I uninstall the driver then restart, then use DriverCleaner.net to cleanup. I don't worry about the one Windows installs. I have no idea how to stop it anyway. Then restart again.

Most people that use DriverSweeper instead of DriverCleaner.net, restart into Safe Mode to do the cleanup then restart into Win7 to install.

So...

Uninstall PhysX, don't reboot, uninstall VGA, reboot into safe mode, drivesweep Physx and VGA, reboot, install nVidia 285.67, reboot, install nVidia PhysX v9.11.1107

?

Yes. I don't remember if PhysX is included in that one so do a custom install and make sure you don't install PhysX from 285.67. Personally, I'd choose 285.64 or 285.79.

I put 285.64 on. I did not install PhysX yet.

The tearing in Rage is gone w/o Vsync, however I get a flickering bar in Rage's main menu, whatever.

I'll have to see how Crysis 2 between missions behaves.

I get that bar in Rage's main menu too. But everything else is flawless. I would leave it alone.
