So I've waited a couple days. Still no update provided by ASUS on the support page for this major hole. Anyone know the status?

Thank you again for contacting ASUS Technical Support, I appreciate you taking the time to respond to our previous email.

I do realize your unit is not in the list, however, this is an ongoing development. I recommend checking back within a week or so to see if there is any further update regarding your unit.

I hope this information was helpful, thank you again for your patience in handling this challenge.



Regarding disabling ME:

Intel ME is used for DRM like netflix. This is why scumbag manufacturers dont give us option to disable. They cannot conceive that someone does not need nor want drm. Personally I want the option to disable, I won't use any site or service that is hostile to owning your own machine like android bank apps or drm using services or games.

There is already a Firmware Update for various G752 to close the security hole.

You can find it here under "driver&tools" and then select other "others" for the OS selection: https://www.asus.com/us/ROG-Republic-Of-Gamers/ROG-G752VT/HelpDesk_Download/

I have already installed it for the G752VT. You can find it for other models like the G752VS under the same section.

Appears to be listed now.
A bus station is where a bus stops. A train station is where a train stops. On my desk, I have a work station…

Any fix for G752VS or this model was so crap that Asus gave up on it and the customers who bought it ?

Appears to be listed as G752VSK but a poster earlier in this thread said it worked for his VS so give it a go.

The Intel ME firmware fix for the VSK works for the VS as well, despite not being listed. Give it a shot and verify using intel's detection tool.

Are all G752VS's just busted or something? The first one I had to RMA due to random shutting down issues when I played games. My current one can't boot from sleep properly half the time (also having boot up issues where it will boot but hang during loading windows and just display a black screen until I press the power button again, at which point it loads windows) and the audio port heats up when I put the computer to sleep. I had a great experience with my G751JT. I'm wondering if I should keep this and accept this computer's problems or roll the dice again with another replacement.

Yes, pretty much all have the same issues : black screen on entering graphics mode, busted touchpad that breaks gestures every now and then when using sleep, weird cracking noises from the sound chip entering power saving mode, hot around the audio area without anything playing, micro freeze issues in games.
For a $2500 laptop, I say its pretty bad.

Fall Creators Update improved stability a little but issues are still present, only they manifest less often.
Asus didn't publish any newer update since 2016, except a bios update in August of 2017, but it didn't fix much.

What about G 751 not worth an answer?
