    Just Safe-mode... (Seriously, that didn't work) Nothing fixes this issue.
    ATI HD 5870 mobility runs good and though I have yet to upgrade to 10.3 catalyst the system still plays most games I throw at it with great fps.
    Not really sure what else to say other than I would recommend this to any gamer looking for a laptop.

    Style Name: G73JH-A2
    In short this computer is amazing. You wont find anything else under $2000 that can beat this. It comes with a standard 2 year warrant and 1 year accidental damage warranty plus a 30 day zero bright dot policy. The included mouse and bag are also great. So far I have been playing crysis and bad company 2(a great game for your new computer) on near full detail with amazing frames with the ati radean 5870(best single graphics card for laptops), 8gb of 1066mhz ram, and the new blazing fast core i7 processor. Although the computer is the size of some 18 inchers, I found that it looked and felt amazing. The whole back, palm rest area, and keys are rubberized which provides a great feel and grip. The keys are also back lit and the speakers on the computer are very loud and provide good audio The one thing I did not like about this computer was the touch pad buttons (not the touchpad its self which is great) are combined under a plastic cover which is really hard to press down on.
    Best for the price
    Back lit keyboard
    rubberized feels great
    Best single graphics card ati 5870 with 1gb gddr5 ram
    8gb of ram is more than enough
    Great processor
    Cool unique look
    and i can just keep going on and on..

    Touch pad buttons I find hard to press down on
    Number pad on keyboard feels squished

    Overall 10/10
    And as I said before this is the best!

    Update after about 3 months
    of use
    I have already lost nearly all the rubber feet which do not seem attached well (medium problem). The keyboard has a lot of light bleeding through under the ` key (minor). And the worst problems i have experienced, my computer overheats! It shuts its self down randomly and i do not believe that the fan over the CPU is working (very major). I have sent it in for RMA with asus and will post an update later.
    If i could change my rating I would give it 3.5-4 stars.

    Style Name: G73JH-A1 Verified Purchase
    I had the G73JH-A1 for almost two weeks before it shutdown while playing a game. A web search for G73JH and shutdown showed it could be overheating problems. I installed desktop gadgets that monitored the CPU and GPU and tested by playing various games. While closely watching and frequently checking the GPU temperature, it was generally anywhere from the mid 90s to just over a 100 and at times would reach 107 degrees.

    After reading more on the web, I downloaded the FurMark benchmark utility and tried the stability test. In less than 3 minutes, the laptop reached 110 degrees and shut down. If the GPU ran hotter than a "normal" 95 degrees, but remained at a constant 100 or 101 degrees without reaching critical temperature, it might have been acceptable. Perhaps by using a cooling pad and making sure the ambient room temperature wasn't higher than 90 I could do without having to send my G73JH for service. But the fact that a gaming laptop could overheat to shutdown with GPU intensive programs meant an unstable video card.

    Just to make sure it wasn't the benchmark utility, I tested it on my desktop computer which has an ATI 5770. It ran at a constant 96 degrees for 15 minutes. A friend installed FurMark on her laptop with an nVidia 360m and it was stable at 85 degrees.

    I'm glad this happened during my first 30 days. Instead of having Asus replace the video card or entire laptop with possibly a refurbished one even though I had just purchased it new, I had Amazon issue me a RMA for an exchange. Hopefully there's one in stock when it reaches them because I really did like this laptop and am willing to give it another chance.

    Aside from the GPU overheating and having to deal with an exchange, there were some minor cons.

    You can find a ton of reviews regarding the hardware and you can compare similarly configured gaming notebooks and you'll see that this is HUNDREDs of dollars cheaper. I've had the machine for almost 2 weeks, gaming about 1-2 hrs a day.

    -have not had a single technical issue
    -function keys for volume and brightness do not bring me to the desktop when playing games (like it did my previous HP)
    -HDMI to HDTV is plug and play (video and audio)

    Now for the Gaming part
    I play around with AA (anti-aliasing) from highest and then bring it down until very smooth playability. These are the games I found to push the notebook the most (settings to be very playable at native 1920x1080, I don't use vsync):
    Crysis/Crysis Warhead - no AA, almost all on High/Gamer settings
    Batman Arkham - No AA, All Max
    RE5 - All Max
    Lost Planet: Extreme Conditions - HDR at medium, No AA, almost all at max
    Prototype - All max
    Wolfenstein - All max
    Borderlands - All max
    Red Faction Guerrilla - No AA, almost all at max
    Just Cause 2 - No AA, almost all at max
    L4D 1 and 2 - All max, even vsysnc

    Every other older game (even newer ones), the G73 just breezes through, (such as GoW, UT3, Dark Void, L4D, TR:Underworld), I've found it handles the Unreal engine quite well.

    I can't believe how this notebook handles games at 1920x1080. Stays cool and quiet. Audio is pretty decent, even takes care of Prototype's low volume issue (just crank it up!). I've been gaming on laptops for more than 12 years (no space for desktop rigs) and I've never had a gaming laptop, always had to compromise the graphics. Not anymore. Playing at 40-50 frames/sec is surely a welcome change.
