I sent it in to asus, I still have the black screen flickering and this error shows up!! I also bought the Recovery CDs from the eStore and still having the problem on the driver 285.62....I cant even play BF3... Does anyone have any other Ideas? I dont know what t do...I ran out of options.....I wasted 3 weeks plus $60....Im starting to hate asus prodcuts....Ive only had problems with there services and THEY dont KNOW A THING!!!!!! I would pay literally if someone could fix actually tell me why its going on....

Things ive tired:
-Reformat/Reinstalled OS
-Downgrade Drivers.... Which if i do...The older driver DOESNT flicker..But Freezes the PC and I have to Hard Reboot with holidng power button
-Updated Drivers/tried every single driver all the way up to the 290....
-Sent it to asus for repairs (RMA?)

if you reinstallled windows, and installed ASNY nvidia driver compatible with your card and you have that error.. RMA!

i'm not an engineer to know.. it can be a million things.
But if with a fresh windows installment and drivers updated you have this kind of error, one thing is for sure, IT SURE IT AIN'T NORMAL!
Asus support (in portugal) is very quick.. but is not very efficient sometimes.
Keep sending your laptop over and over again, until you have the problem solved. i have a friend that had to send 7 times the g51 to replace a faulty nvidia. 7times!
in the end they gave up and gave him a new g53. ..

Since you bought recovery disks, I'm guessing that's what you meant by "reformat/re-install?"

If you haven't yet tried a clean install, which is quite different from the recovery install, I'd suggest that as the next step. Troubleshooting on a fully-bloated Asus installation can be a massive exercise in frustration, as you've discovered.

I did both brody, a recovery and re-install.

A clean install? WIth only the essential drivers and no other Asus software?

hey 380, have your driver crashed since you got the second G74 ( if that was the reason for getting it replaced)

Thanks

Well I heard from someone that disabling the inter-graded video card messes up the cuda video cards? Could this be it?

I had the same problem with my G73 "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered" whenever i updated my driver to any version after 266.58, so i returned to stock 266.58 and is working fine again.

Try downloading and installing MSI afterburner, and *under*clocking your video card. If that cures the error then your card is faulty and can't handle the specs its rated for, in which case you could/should demand a new board from ASUS.
