    [G73SW-3DE] Flashing screen while using 120hz

    Well, as the tittle said my laptop started to flash the screen. It was working perfectly but this week i dunno what happened to it. The screen keeps flashing when i try to use 3d or when i put 120hz refresh rate.

    Already tried to install old nvidia drivers but it wont work. Im thinking about to make a video showing the problem.. is this really necessary?

    So:

    Problem: Flashing screen while using 120hz
    OS: W7
    Machine: G73SW-3DE
    Tries:
    a- Installing nvidia old driver (265.96)
    b- Tried system restoration but not worked
    c- Without battery this problem dont happens

    Help me asus or anyone !

    Hi there,

    since you already did restoring to no avail. Have you consider doing a clean install for your G73?

    It sounds like you could possibly have a bad battery. I recommend you PM Chastity@ASUS on this forum and open a case.

    Well the problem is back.. thats not an battery issue.

    I think its when the gpu gets a lil hot or something around 60º, 70+

    But with battery the problem happens everytime.

    Thanks for answering ill contact that guy.

    This issue is most likely a bad or incorrect cable. We have the correct cabled and Chastity will be able to set up an RMA to have you send the unit in to be fixed ASAP.
