    G74SX-tz238V freezing up in DOS !

    Hi,

    Are here other people who have freezing problems? I bought this laptop last thursday, this thing is hanging random between 1-2 times in 2 hour, so i did a memory test with memtestx86+ 4.20, guess what, laptop even hangs in DOS mode !
    Also when i unplug the powercable after a full loaded battery, the system does a poweroff instantly !
    Are there other people here who have the same problems?

    Thanks in advance.

    I'd say lag is sort of like freezing, wouldn't you? Read the stickies. But do this first. http://www.asusrog.com/forums/showth...eros-WiFi-Card

    Since you just purchased this laptop, I would call your retailer and see if they will exchange it for a new one.

    DOS? What am I missing. I'm telling you that wifi driver is a real troublemaker...

    How does it hang in windows? does it just freeze? Are there any memory dumps in c:\windows\minidump? Try disabling everything you can in BIOS, does it still happen?

    Your playing and suddenly the computer is hanging and "half-second sound" is very rappidly repeating until i shutdown the pc, or when i unplug the power cord the light goes directly out ! (even with full charged battery). no memory dumps found in minidump.

    Would you just update that WiFi driver! http://www.asusrog.com/forums/showth...24-New-Drivers

    In DOS mode, the windows drivers are still running. So a bad driver that causes lag and freezes even when it isn't doing anything useful, would still effect the hardware, wouldn't it?
