G814JZ- Panel overdrive and Panel Power Saver missing and unrecoverable.

Level 9

Decided to post this over here because I didn’t see that there was an armoury crate thread.

I have no panel power saver or panel overdrive in armoury crate anymore after a clean install on my strix g18 4080. Basically, asus smart display control no longer dims the display or drops the frame rate to 60hz when unplugged, and I can’t set the display to the lowest latency possible. 

I’ve already googled the heck out of this and can only find people suggesting to uninstall RefreshRateService and download it from the manufacturer website. Only problem is that there’s no RefreshRateService installed on the computer, nor does it exist on the strix g814jz download page.

As for smart display control, I’ve deleted and re-installed many times to no avail. All I get on install is a few cmd windows opening, then nothing. The app will be in the “apps and programs” list, but doesn’t seem to function at all.

I’ve uninstalled armoury crate with the uninstall tool and re-installed multiple times. I’ve uninstalled AsusSystemControlInterfaceV3 multiple times and re-installed with no change. I’ve even installed windows a few different ways including restoring from a previous back-up. Among a few other hail mary attemps.

I’m not able to find or do anything to bring this function back, so help would be greatly appreciated!

Doesn’t work that way for 2023 and newer. There is no RefreshRateService to be downloaded. It’s handle by some other service’s my models download page:

unfortunately, there's a bug with recent windows updates that makes panel overdrive disappear which has been reported by Asus, and is currently being worked on.
