View Full Version : Low Performance G73JH-BST7

12-21-2011, 05:52 PM
I bought my g73 about 2 months ago and it came with a modified windows. after a time (when i started playing games), i realized i was getting low performance on my laptop. then, i did a fresh format with my own windows and installed the drivers in ROG forums. there was a little ascendance on performance but not normal. I'm saying not normal because, my friend has an ASUS k53s with nvidia 540m and he's getting 40-50 fps and I'm getting 15-20 fps at skyrim. By the way, the laptop has been freezing at random times since i bought it and two weeks ago i took the laptop to the service because of this freezing problem. today i got it and tried playing skyrim and fps was still the same. (btw, after the format i did nearly all the things which has been said on the forums about gsod, vbios, stuttering and etc.) and i don't think this is the normal performance of this laptop or this graphic card.
what is the problem? or what should i do?

What did the service people do about the freezing? Has that been fixed?

Did you do this - http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?5126-Any-Kind-of-Lag-and-Atheros-WiFi-Card. (Only if you have an Atheros wifi card. )

Take a look at NVIDIA Control Panel on your friend's laptop and see how he has it configured. Is "Power management mode" configured to "Adaptive" or "Prefer maximum performance"? Is Vertical Sync and Antialiasing turned off?

Have you tried ThrottleStop? See http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?2329-ATTENTION-G73-53SW-Owners-CPU-Throttling-to-798mhz-and-how-to-fix-it

Do you have a Seagate Momentus XT HDD? In http://forums.seagate.com/t5/Momentu...-in/td-p/55656 discusses a lag issue with the Momentus XT. One user works around the problem by using Crystal Disk to disable AAM/APM on the drive. Unfortunately, this workaround must be implemented on each boot.

service people said abou freezing problem that they didnt observe any. but they said they cleaned the fans and i think it was about heating and so im not getting any freezing at all.

i got the latest drivers (not betas) and i was using throttle stop before i handed over the laptop to the service. now i installed radeon pro and configurated it. now, at high quality settings i am getting 25-40 fps. it seems normal for me right now but what do you think about it?

while we were comparing the latops, we use the same options at games just with a difference, his resolution is 1366x768 at standart, mine is 1600x900. so that, anti alisasing and vsync is on.

i took a look at device manager and looked for the model, its seagate but not xt series. thank you, anyway.

Now, it started again! started freezing at random times again. it doesnt matter what I am doing when it happens, the screen freezes(the last frame of the desktop stays) and I cant do anything except pressing the shut down button. laptop doesnt respond anything I do at that time.
What is this problem?

try hard resetting your bios, remove battery and power supply unit, press your power button for 10 seconds+, plug back and on.
