Well, as the tittle said my laptop started to flash the screen. It was working perfectly but this week i dunno what happened to it. The screen keeps flashing when i try to use 3d or when i put 120hz refresh rate.

Already tried to install old nvidia drivers but it wont work. Im thinking about to make a video showing the problem.. is this really necessary?

So:

Problem: Flashing screen while using 120hz
OS: W7
Machine: G73SW-3DE
Tries:
a- Installing nvidia old driver (265.96)
b- Tried system restoration but not worked
c- Without battery this problem dont happens

Help me asus or anyone !

Hi there,

since you already did restoring to no avail. Have you consider doing a clean install for your G73?

Im going to try this restoration this week.. i hope it works cuz this screen flashing bug is really annoying and "common" on asus laptops... Im luck that my 60hz still working fine aswell

It sounds like you could possibly have a bad battery. I recommend you PM Chastity@ASUS on this forum and open a case.

Well the problem is back.. thats not an battery issue.

I think its when the gpu gets a lil hot or something around 60, 70+

But with battery the problem happens everytime.

Thanks for answering ill contact that guy.

This issue is most likely a bad or incorrect cable. We have the correct cabled and Chastity will be able to set up an RMA to have you send the unit in to be fixed ASAP.
