    Asus G73JW keeps freezing(?)

    Hello I am new to the forum,
    I bought my Asus back in early December but i have been having alot of problems for some time now.
    mainly the problem is that the laptop keeps freezing(i believe this is the correct term).
    this usually happens right after i start up the computer and have logged on. i have surfed the forum and have heard that itunes may be causing the problem, so i have not yet turned on itunes yet(and it hasnt freezed! )
    but i wanted to make sure that Itune is the problem and not something else. if i remember correctly this problem started occuring after one of the asus live update. I am still not entirely sure what is causing the problem. (i have read some of the older posts but i am not sure if it is the same issue or not.

    Thanks in advance!

    EDIT: i am currently using Itune and the laptop didnt freeze(yet?) so im not sure if Itune is really causing the problem or not.

    Check to see that TwinTurbo is disabled. I had that lockup my JW a couple of times from TurboBoost + TwinTurbo = too high of an OC and lockup.
    Kicking Ass Since Today

    twin turbo has been turned off so it shouldnt be the cause

    Solution Randonly locks up Asus g73jw

    Hi guys i'm new, i have a solution for this problem for all
    G73 randomly locks up (freezes)

    1) upgrade mother board driver
    2) upgrade your Realtek Audio Driver
    this audio driver seems to be d cause, idk why.

    3) upgrade firmware for seagate momentus xt

    You don't need to reinstall Creative Audio Center. I had issues with previously released drivers, But finally the issues seems to be fixed with the new Realtek Audio driver! I installed the new driver, Creative Audio Center Recognized it without any problem and I launched all programs above with enabled Subwoofer boost and no more lock up!

    plz let me know, works for me and many people.
