Is my Asus G73JW-A1 dying?!

Recommended Posts

Hello there!

I have this notebook since 2/11.

Since July of this year, the screen started to go black during normal use, and a message appears telling that the an error occurred to the nvidia driver. I've tried a lot of different drivers, but the error persists.

In a long playing session, when I quit the game, sometimes the screen show some artifacts, as you can see in the attached pictures.

Did anyone had this problem before?! Is my Asus dying!?

I'm willing to give a try on the 660M mode, but I want to make sure that this is only a vga problem that I have, not a general failure!

Thanks a lot!

Well if it's anything like my G50VT-X1, my screen started doing that kind of thing and just about last week my whole video card died... Not trying to scare you but have you gotten any blue screens?

Seems like your drivers are crashing, this normally happens due to too high clocks. But if it's not OCed try uninstalling the drivers and erase all Nvidia folders on your hdd and reinstall.

As I've told, I've already tried a lot of different drivers, clean installs, formatting, but that's don`t seems to be a driver problem!

Some times BSOD appears...

JW can't run on an iGP, it's dedicated graphics only.

Also I've had this (quite similar) problem on Dell XPS M1330. It was a sign of faulty GPU (the infamous crappy-soldered nVidia GT 8600), so I had to get it back to the depot for mobo replacement. If you have any warranty this would be the time to use it. I'm not sure how Asus notebooks work, but on Alienware systems Dell has included a very nice diagnostic tool (this has to be one of my favorite features) that you can access during boot where you can test literally all the hardware (it even detects e.g. if the crossfire cable is bad). Perhaps Asus has something similar?

I doubt the LCD is bad, but that can be easily tested by just hooking up the laptop to an external screen.

Other than that, you could I guess buy a new GPU but then the problem is that there is still a small possibility that something on the mobo died.

how are the temps on the gpu? others have had artifacts, flickering and bsods on that model due to high temps. Some vga cards have also gone bad.

      Hello!
       
      I have a notebook Asus X550CC.
      Some weeks ago my screen went black with the brightness working though (black screen but one can see brightness changes) - I couldn't figure out the root of the problem, since it was sudden and it works with an external monitor.
      Now, I was trying to install an SSD with a caddy. I went to BIOS to change the boot order, but couldn't find my SSD - so, I accidently disabled launch CSM option hoping it would recognize it or something. After that I couldn't access BIOS anymore and I have a very slow startup with dxgkrnl.sys, wdfilter.sys and CAD.sys showing not loaded in the boot log.
      I tried to:
      Remove CMOS battery for 8h  Short JRST2001 and JRST2002  Access BIOS through windows 10 troubleshooting None of the above worked for me
      The laptop does not restart or shuts down correctly as it gets stuck somewhere and I have to press ON/OFF button again in order to shut it completly. The only display I can see in the external monitor, during start-up is the windows 10 loading screen (can't see the asus loading screen) and it takes more than 5 minutes to get me there (seems like a bootloop).
       
      I hope someone may have the answer cause I'm running out of solutions 
       
      Thanks in advance, everyone!

      hello everyone, I have a MSI GT683R with a dying (pretty much dead actually) GTX560M in it.
       
      I am looking to upgrade it to a new GPU, I have found a AMD Firepro M6100. (I first wanted to upgrade to a GTX970M, but that's too expensive for now... and corona is also making things difficult) I have already ordered a second heatsink to modify because I didn't want to modify the original heatsink it came with.
       
      But, my question is. Does it even work in this system? I have heard of people getting it to work in the barebone variant of this system. But I am not sure if it would work in the 'fully loaded' variant.
       
      Also, my games are mostly RAM/CPU dependent and I am looking for a little extra power in this system. I have found a I7-2860qm and I want to upgrade to 32GB of RAM, is it possible on this system? the sticker says 'max. 16GB of RAM' But I have feeling it says that due to the limitation of the cpu that's already on this system (I7-2630QM, 16GB RAM max.)

      Hi,
       
      I am having some heat issues with the GTX 680m I installed on my Alienware M17x R2 (yes, its old).  Having installed and ran HWiNFO64, it appears that the maximum rpm of the GPU fan is 2560rpm, even when the GPU reached a maximum of 93° Celsius.  The rpm seems low, but what is the maximum rpm of the fan, does anyone have any ideas?
       
      Thanks

      Hi, I'm having problems trying to connect a GTX 750 Ti to my Lenovo T420 using the dock EXP GDC Beast (express card version).
      My laptop: Lenovo T420
      RAM: 8GB DDR3
      CPU: Intel Core i5 2520M
      GPU: Intel HD Graphics 3000
       
      My problem is: if I plug the express card and I turn on the laptop it doesn't boot up and the screen becomes horrible, with coloured pixels and a sound like "bip-bip".
      If I try plugging the express card when the laptop is already turned on it sees the gpu, but if try installing the drivers I have to apply the modifies restarting the computer.
      I hope you understood my problem (I don't speak English very well).
      Please help me, It's making me crazy!
       
      EDIT: I didn't say that if I plug the express card when the pc is already turned on, in the device menager there is "Error 12" on the gtx 750 ti

      Hello everyone,, I need your expertise, I have a m17 r4, (2012) unlocked A15 bios thanks to Klem, it has a Gtx 675m in it now, 
      I would like to know the best GPU to upgrade to without losing a lot of the factory functions of the alienware laptop, like being able to use both VGA functions such as intel 4000, and the factory bios for the cooling of the GPU, I don't want to solely rely on the nvidia
      As a full dedicated GPU, let me know what VGA card to get and what vbios to use, I will gladly donate beer to you for your help, or point me to a member on this forum who can help me,
      Thanks, Shelby,  Aka captcavy
