    Be Wery Wery Qwiet - I am hunting wabbit -
    I mean - Be Very Very Careful following the recommendation to flash your ASUS G73 with the "suggested" MSI vBIOS - There have been incidents where others who have done so, have "BRICKED" their machines - I personally don't recommend any one use a different manufacturers BIOS/vBIOS on their computer - If you own an ASUS then wait for ASUS to deal with the problem and release the vBIOS - OR risk turning your G73 into a brick -

    Just to make sure that you've been warned if you follow the recommendation to use a non-ASUS vBIOS on your ASUS machine.

    In Christ,

    The linked vBIOS is working correctly, if you brick your laptop with it, its your fault because you didn't flash it correctly. Thats why I sad under a big WARNING, that don't use the latest MSI vBIOS, only the linked one. The linked one fixes GSOD, the newest bricks your Asus VGA. Simple.

    If you're the same Travelor from the notebookreview forums, I seem to remember you insisted that because YOUR g73 had no problems, that NO problems exist with the g73s. Sounds surprisingly like a miracle: "Well, all MY problems have been solved by such and such, yours would be too if only you wished upon the same star!"

    Wow DCx,
    I am not sure exactly what I said to you that deserves the reply you posted.
    Also, I am the same Travelor, and all that I've done is warn possible lurkers/readers of this forum that there are risks to using a non-ASUS approved/tested vBIOS.
    It is obvious you either are mistaken my NBR posts with someone else or haven't really read my posts. I have never said that because my G73 does not have problems doesn't mean it is not problematic.


    I really am sorry if I offended you. I had no clue that I did so, and truly request your patience and forgiveness.

    In Christ,
    Trav...

    GSOD is a known issue with the G73...at least known by the users. For months Asus has denied and lied about the existence of the GSOD, they only admitted it (of course quietly, not officially...there might be even Asus workers who haven't heard about this) that it is there and they arranged a few techs to look into the problem. So far they released a new vBIOS a week ago, of course it did not fix the GSOD issue. They promised a fix, but after seeing how Asus let down the W90 owners (W90 had similar vBIOS issue, and Asus didn't fix it, despite that the W90 was a $2000+ gaming laptop!), there might be never a perfect fix.

    If you can't wait for Asus to finally throw out their poorly coded vBIOS and make a new, working one, there is an alternative fix.

    The better qualified technicians at MSI, have fixed the GSOD issue 5 months ago. You can download their 5870M vBIOS from here: MSI vBIOS 5870M
    Just flash your Asus 5870M and there won't be any GSOD anymore, you can use new drivers with it. It is easy, just copy the files on a Fat32 formatted flash drive and after booting from it, run VFlash.bat. A lot of users who can't wait for months until Asus finally makes a working vBIOS, which already exists, are using this MSI vBIOS.

    WARNING!
    Only use the linked vBIOS! The linked vBIOS fixes the G73 GSOD, BUT the newest vBIOS on MSI's download page bricks the G73 VGA!!

    Also, the MSI vBIOS fixes the GSOD,but there is a drawback. Since the MSI vBIOS originally wasn't designed for the G73, until you are using it, the HDMI and VGA output of your G73 will not work! Since you, Dracowyr sad that you would use it for teaching, you can install and use the latest drivers with this vBIOS, but you will not be able to connect your G73 to a projector, at least until you reflash the Asus vBIOS...which means you get the GSOD back.
    Hi, It's an interesting one. I used the vBIOS from here and 10.8CCC. The HDMI and all else is working perfectly. Am I missing something?
