still have this problem and i cant seem to fix it , as far as i can remeber it wasnt like this when i first got it..

i could play dirt3 on battery fine but now... i cant play it as the frame rate will be at 50-ish for a while then screen blinks and it drops to 15 for a few seconds then back up....

some people can play crysis 2 on battery and i cant

I dont think its PowerMizer because I installed Nvidia PowerMizer Manager and it says that i dont have PowerMizer settings in registry...


That tool is incompatible with Vista / Win 7. Every driver from NVIDIA has PowerMizer. 🙂

Have you tried ThrottleStop? It seems to be solving a similar problem for others.

Yep, sounds like the atypical throttle issue with Sandy lappies.

If it seems to be switching back and forth between power modes (FPS changes not due to change in graphics complexity on screen) then I would recommend sending your laptop in so we can take a look at it.

ive been reading and this issue seems quite common so is it just the G53SW-XN1 that have this problem .. im thinking is a power issue and it only occurs while running nearly any 3d applications maybe its the battery?

PM Mason@Asus your contact info (email, phone number, name, serial number, address, model number) and he can setup an RMA for you.

do they charge you for shipping etc?

To the OP and Boxkid, the two with flickering screens, are these models with 3D screens?
