    Laptops cannot RROD...

    1250 is not enough for a gaming laptop anyway.

    Work on your sentence structure please.

    Also you shouldn't be trying to game on a laptop anyway, its stupid and pointless and a waste of money.

    For the price you would pay for a single gaming laptop you could build 2 desktops with the most high end hardware.

    Gaming on a Laptop?! Maybe light to average gaming on some older titles, but not real gaming.

    Well not the MOST high end hardware. Gotta take into account you will need a Monitor and stuff he may not have. You could build 1 really kick ass system with great speakers, huge monitor, and get mouse and keyboard.

    idk why you are having problems, i personally have had one for a while, since late aug or so and have had absolutely none of the issues you are having, and am using win7 rc 7100 x64.

    First a few things i feel should be pointed out. First of all you sentence structure is dismal, and so is your grammar. I'm not sure if it's because i'm in an english comp class, or if it's just that bad, but it needs fixing. Secondly your issues, however prevolent are clearly isolated cases, and believe me, i've been doing my research. There are close to 90k views and 1800 posts in this thread here asus g71, and not one of them has the issue you are having.

    The issues you are having actually are quite rare and in all my pc experience have only happened to desktop pc's with buggy drivers. Perhaps before trolling the forums you could have done some research and perhaps figured out what the issue was.

    Another thing is your issue with the laptop, are things that could have been avoided if you had done any research on the product at all. Battery life and issue for you, should've done your research imho. It's a desktop replacement, and quite literally on par with most other laptops in it's range such as the sager np8662, msi, and gateway offerings. Also it's better against more expensive options such as the alienware m17x which costs you and arm and a let to get a bigger battery, of course after you sell your first born to buy the m17x itself.

    Second is your vague description of your problem, if it weren't for the fact that this is a tech forum, nobody would have a clue what the hell your talking about. Your issues are described poorly, which is a major reason i feel the need to dignify your failure of an attempt to sway purchasers to not buy the asus g71 with a reply. I'm hoping that people are not looking into your post specifically and making a decision.

    Its things like this that really make a black mark on the forums we all share and use. There is not effort in your synopsis of the problems you are having, nor have you given us any real idea as to the things you have done to rectify the issue, if anything at all. I suggest you hold back the uneducated abrasive comments and take a look at the link i posted above, you may learn something. If there has been a serious issue with the g71 to date, someone mentioned it there, give it a read, and happy gaming.

    rrod, i never picked this out of the post due to the really bad grammar, but wth??? the asus g71 doesn't have a rrod, it doesn't even have a ring of light save for that around the touchpad.

    for those whom "never would buy a laptop for gaming" thats great, personally that doesn't help with the problem at hand, as we really don't give a crap whether you would or not. Also, based on my initial testing of my g71, average scores put me at the middle to high of most desktops in the threads here for 3dmark06, vantage, re5, furmark, sf4, and many other games. Some people need a way to game on the go, i have a great desktop but with school and being away for work, i bought the g71 to have a mild gaming computer with me. It works great, and it was worth all the money i payed for it compared to some of the other more expensive offerings.

    True but then you would have to be hercules to keep on taking it from a room to another!

    Why is it pointless no IDEA!

    1250, well tell that to asus and if such a case i hope you could donate some of your money to everyone so they would afford it?

    And i never meant for you to take RROD literally! just a phrase.

    Ps: I never Mastered English :slap: So cant blame me for that

    1.Well if i knew the problem i would never post this in the first place!

    2.um i have seen a review long ago stating my problem or somewhat like it, maybe you just arent trying hard enough on your reasearch? Try harder cuz you arent doing so! as i did find it on my first search and wasnt even really looking for that.

    3.Wasnt trolling, not everyone is a expert or shows off to be as you!

    4.Sorry but i know values of things than rather like you go and sell kids for hardware or god know what stuff you might be addicted too.

    5.This is a tech foum and so i posted here DUH! and i posted cuz i am not an expert, never said i was. I posted my own thoughts on it not to sway people away, but you are much of a Fan boy to notice, living in your tiny world defending a worthless point!

    6. Iam looking forward to help, not your self image that how great you are and my english
    is not as good as yours bieng a english student...

    7. I was gonna post a video on my matter to better explain it, as i myself dont know what
    to call this but You just are way to ignorant to wait, would be better if this post is
    closed as none of you are helpful, rather a moderator would encourage and say thanks to
    these thing.
    I better just look for this help else where

    I don't care about the grammar much if english is your 3rd language or something (like me xD)

    But it really seems you don't know anything about computers. 1st of all, IMO, buying a gaming laptop is NOT stupid... here that everyone? NOT stupid... BUT only if you have a GOOD reason. Like portability, no need of extreme gaming, no need of long battery life. I for one, will be buying one next year. The asus gaming laptops are, by quite a bit, the best IMHO. But should rank very high for anyone really.

    If what you are saying is real and not your fault, it is a VERY rare problem and ASUS customer support will help you in no time. Did you even try to contact them?

    It would be stupid to bash them if you didn't even contact them now wouldn't it be hmmm?

    EDIT:

    I warn you, I hate how you just talked to our members, watch your mouth. No matter what other people say, don't ever insult our members.

    that issues a software conflict.

    i've seen it caused by things like xfire, keyloggers, and tweaks to nvidia drivers.

    try uninstalling all drivers and reinstalling them, and removing any un-neccesary programs (EG, when you game, JUST have the game running)

    I have to agree with n-ster. You need to just chill and restate your main point.
    We understand that obviously you are having problems with games on you G71.
    I'm sure everyone would be more understanding if you stated what games you were trying to play
    and why you don't like how you can't play these certain games on the laptop
    instead of ranting on and arguing with exodusprime. He was just trying to help.

    No need to flame this thread with nothingness. And let other people state their opinion.
    Other peoples opinions do not classify them as "Fanboys".

    This guy seems to just troll to be honest, not many (none??) of his posts make much sense and if they do its always to complain about something, be a fan-boy or abuse another member. :shadedshu

    I have no idea why mods keep allowing him to post....although, it is amusing sometimes to watch someone make a fool of themself. :laugh:



    Laptops are fine for light/medium gaming, mine is OK even if I dont use it very much due to having a sufficient desktop.

    That is a very clear help that the other guy failed to provide and people just encourage him? seems justified to me!
    And i would try that, althought nothing else is causing problems except some games, and my drivers are up to date

    people get angry when their friends and colleagues are treated badly.

    how you came in here was rude, and not how we do things: this is a help forum, where you ask for help. not a place to go to bitch and moan when your life isnt made of rainbows and unicorns (like my avatar)


    You had a problem with your laptop: ask for help. dont try and make stupid comments about an xbox 360, or killing yourself before buying the laptop just because you're too uneducated to know how to fix the problem yourself, and too blind to think of asking for help before abusing the product.


    NO ONE here is allowed to call anyone names. except moderators and w1zzard, but we do our best to be nice. I'll say this: i dont care who started it. its the people who continue it that get annoying.


    edit: SHIT POS! i saw the same avatar twice in a row and thought it was a double post, so i merged it....

    If we all use this threads logic I could blame XFX for making 2 bad 4870s that die so easily.... or, I could blame myself for pushing them both too hard. :roll:



    Edit: Nice way to plug your avatar, Mussels. LOL

    The games have been stated if you missed still ( counter-strike , hitman bloodmoney,
    monstertruck nitro, and i dont remember all)
    some games dont give a problem or just show a hint of it,as in crysis warhead, Call of duty.


    well to other people my problem seems to simple to be solved and cant really figure it out
    themselves, as of obvious none of that helped me.

    I feel there is too much tension for nothing... might I suggest we forget whatever the others said and focus on your problem?

    A good way to isolate the problem would be to try to reinstall Windows perhaps? If you have too much data to backup, then we should find another solution first
