I don't know if I'm in the right place here, but since there's a lot of competent swarm knowledge here, I thought I'd turn here:
to my problem:
A month ago I ordered a new Asus A17 FA707RR RTX 3070 laptop. Slightly cheaper because declared as B-Goods. I personally found nothing on the supposedly slightly damaged box.
After switching on, after about 3-4 hours of installation orgy, I noticed that the monitor flickers slightly every few seconds at 144Hz in the lower right corner of the display.
After several attempts to install various drivers, etc., I was only able to solve the problem by lowering the frequency to 134.56Hz.

Then I noticed in the system that the laptop had already been installed in mid-December (about 1 month earlier). My thought was that maybe this was used for BitCoin mining?
Since I only noticed this behavior (flickering) with "worn" graphics cards.
In the Furmark test, however, the device seems to me to bring "normal" values.
Preset:1080 @134,56 Hz (1920x1080 fullscreen, 0X MSAA, 60 seconds, dynamic background, burn-in test mode)
9291 points, 155 FPS, 60000ms
Current BIOS is 94.04.7E.00.73 (FA707RR.314)
Windows 11 Home 22H2 Build: 22621.1194
Then I noticed in the Device Manager that there are 2 computers there:
1. ACPI x64-based computer
2. ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. ASUS TUF Gaming A17 FA707RR_FA707RR
Can this cause problems? What are you doing there?
What shall I do now? Send device back? Asus has already been informed. But still waiting for an answer today.
My concern is that I may not be able to get a replacement unit until mine is replaced/repaired
thanks alot, cheers ^^
