Last night I did a full fresh install on OS/with drivers. Because of the black screen flickering. I tried using the beta graphics driver for the beta which is I think 285.38.

Because when I first got this laptop in june, I never got the error and my screen didnt flicker, but I dont remember which driver it came with it. Im not sure if it was a 266 or 270(5). If anyone knows I would appreciate it. And if they know a place I can download for the notebooks.

I googled them but I can only find the desktop versions. :S

Thanks :)

Hi

Go into my profile, view started threads, and find the thread: how to fix 3D on G73SW (or something in that direction). In that thread you can find a link to NVIDIA and find the driver 266.66 (I think it is for your notebook)

I'm sorry but I would post a hyper link to the thread but I'm on my phone, so it's not easy =/

Do you think going back to tha driver would fix it ? Because I'm still getting flickering with a new install and fresh drivers. I tried with the 285.38 and the 285.75 or the beta one. I can't figure it out. Been constantly researching it

I don't if you downgrade your driver to an older version would help, but to see if it helps you can download and install an earlier version :)
(Here is the SITE (http://www.nvidia.com/object/3d-vision-notebook-driver.html) I talked about, if you not already have been there) :)

Have you updated your DirectX latly?
Does this happends on all the games your playing or is it just specific ones?

Ehh, I think when I installed saints row three it installed the latest one. But it happens only when I'm gaming. Thanks. I'll see of it works and post back. I really want to get this fixed. It's getting really annoying

This ASUS site (http://support.asus.com/Download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=G73Sw&p=3&s=252) has the original video driver for your G73Sw.

The fix for it was-
Fresh Install with drivers

But thanks for all the help. I will post it on a fix thread so others can do it if they have the same problem.

Good to know that you got your notebook fixed :)

If you're not sure which verison you got installed, go to
controlpanel -> programs -> uninstall programs

When you are in there, scroll down to nvidia drivers and to the right you can see which version you have installed :)
