    Hopefully it is just the cable, as that's the last item not changed. I doubt you've gotten that many bad GPU's. Plus if it's a bad GPU, Windows would not load up nor would the bios work even blindly....

    Seems like you've narrowed it down to the cable, if you've tested the LCD and it's working.

    If it is just the cable or the LCD a external monitor should work, but you have to cycle the FN + Video...

    The plug on the screen side of the cable is usually stuck down with tape and rarely comes undone, unless the screen has been changed before. If you take the trim peice off that is behind where the...

    I have the same card in my G73SW, mine came from a G53SX. Anyway not all cards/machines can OC to the same level but here is the highest I've been able to get mine to and remain stable.

    I'm really not a fan of cloning a Windows partition. I'd much rather take the oppertunity to do a clean install of Windows. I don't even use the factory recovery on the HD. There is so much...

    You might check what all is starting up with windows. There are many programs that make managing startup programs pretty easy. I personally like Glary's Utilities.

    Is that GPU temp just idle (browsing and the basics) or under game play? That's way to high if it's just idle. You probably need to take apart the laptop, clean the dust bunnies out of the...

    Have you checked your temperatures? Download speedfan and make sure your not running hot, which it kinda sounds like.

    Thanks Grungeboy.

    I mostly used the strips because they are a stock part from the G73, I knew the voltages are right for where I was tapping the power from. Plus that way it would work with the...

    Yup, take it apart, clean out the fans/heatsinks, then replace the thermal paste. It will run much better. Not doing this and continuing to run hot is going to damage the video card.

    If it was me, I'd back up my data and re-install Windows. It's highly doubtful that a hardware error would cause only media player to not work. Something in the software is causing this. It could...

    1. Yes

    2. It needs to be in slot 1 to install Windows on. Just move the original HD to the 2nd spot and use as storage.

    Your blu-ray drive may have just gone out. They are not very high quality. Do you have a DVD drive that you can put in and test if it works?

    The G73's are notorious for touchpad issues. With them it's a hardware problem more then a driver, though getting better drivers directly from Synaptics is always a good move.
