Hi i have a G74Sx-BBK8 for about a month now, and sometimes just freeze (but i think my AV(kaspersky pure) is causing it).

Also i saw that you need to uninstall the ASUS update, is that the same as the ASUS live update?
And would someone tell me the things that i need to uninstall that might be causing my laptop to freeze/slow.

And also what's the best program to test the 3D mark etc.
Also i want to do a clean reinstall, bestbuy put some useless application....but i'm not really expert on doing a reinstall on a laptop, i've done a recovery 2x already tho.

Welcome to the Asus forums!

If you think it's your antivirus (it shouldn't be causing your system to freeze) you can always uninstall it and install a free antivirus like Microsoft Security Essentials.

You don't need to uninstall Asus Update/LiveUpdate, but it is recommended by many on this forum. From my experience, it's fairly useless.

It depends on what kind of testing you want to run. If you're looking for a benchmark, Futuremark's 3DMark program is one of the most commonly used. If you want to run a heat/stress test of your GPU, I would recommend FurMark.

ummmmmm JRd1st i tried to search the atheros on my laptop but i find nothing, i have a Intel@ My Wifi Technology and wireless console 3 though.
irdmoose tnx, could you please post the CPU-Z website thing

Ummm what about my BIOS, do i need to update it, and where can i find the bios version on my laptop?

Sorry if i have lots of question, just that i love this laptop and i want my laptop free errors :)

so i run 3 marks (not at the same time) and my results are:
3DMark 11 = P1854
3DMark 06 = 16089
PCMark 7 = 2470

so umm you guys have G74 too right does this scores tell you that my BKK8 is ... alright?

You should know the BestBuy model better than I do. Sorry for the flippant answer, but geez...

It doesn't have a 3D display....but you can output to an appropriate external monitor. (At least you can on the non-BB models....I can't say 100% that option exists on yours.)

well yea i think so cuz BBK8 native resolution is only 16x90, and yes i have a 23 inch Hp w2338h monitor using HDMI, you think it will work for 3D? i have the option here on my laptop "Enable 3D vision" and "Disable 3D vision".

True 3D requires a 3D-capable display.
