is there keystroke skip fix for G53SW?
it seems like theres oly fix for G73

Also, anyone else hear high-pitches sound from either motherboard or HDD when moving mouse?
I hear it when i run my G53SW on high performance or multimedia mode, but not when i run in silence or battery ode.

If you have an Atheros WiFi card, try this - http://www.asusrog.com/forums/showthread.php?5126-Any-Kind-of-Lag-and-Atheros-WiFi-Card

Get DPC Latency Checker from http://www.thesycon.de/eng/latency_check.shtml and follow the instructions on how to troubleshoot with it. You may have other drivers on your system that contribute to latency besides the Atheros driver.

Configure your browser to use software rendering instead of GPU or hardware rendering.

In Keyboard Properties, reduce "Repeat delay:" by moving the slider all the way to the right towards "Short". Then increase "Repeat rate:" also be moving the slider to the right towards "Fast" to the point where you start typing inadvertent double characters. Then back it off a scosh, so you only type double characters if you mean to...

I don't use a mouse, so I can't help you with that issue. But take a look at these google hits: http://www.google.com/#hl=en&cp=27&gs_id=2x&xhr=t&q=high+pitched+noise+when+moving+mouse&pf=p&sclient=psy-ab&source=hp&pbx=1&oq=high+pitched+noise+when+mov&aq=0&aqi=g1&aql=&gs_sm=&gs_upl=&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.,cf.osb&fp=da47f35edef78ce8&biw=1003&bih=754

... Isn't this just the basic BIOS issue?

... Isn't this just the basic BIOS issue?
DPC latencies can impact other hardware, (i.e., the Atheros latencies can cause both video and touchpad glitches), so it's possible that driver latencies are also causing keyboard glitches in some cases.

But you're right, a first-line fix involves updating the BIOS and ATK. But checking latencies is a good diagnostic tool to see if other factors are involved.

reinstalled atk package, wlan driver, etc
also bios is up to date i think?
mine is currently 203, and asus.com says latest is 203

right now i uninstalled KB driver to see if this work.

Yeah, latest is 203.
