    G73JW Full GPU while watching a movie?

    Guys, is there a way to throttle down the GPU while watching a movie? Surely watching a 720P vid doesn't require the full firepower of a 460M chipset? Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    You could try using an overclock tool and just turning your GPU clocks down instead of up possibly, although I don't know if you can force it to stay at that lower clock without ramping up or not.

    Is there a hardware acceleration option on someplace? Turn it off.

    I've been looking for a hardware accelerated option button somewhere but haven' been able to find it. The GPU ramps up when playing through Windows Media Player or Media Player Classic.
