ASUS G53JW Video Driver Update Problem – How To

ASUS G53 Video Driver

ASUS G53 Video Driver

Have read of others having problems updating the Nvidia Video driver on this model. And I to had the same problem. “Compatible Hardware Not Found” driver install failed. I uninstalled the old driver first and ran into this problem trying to install the driver. I created a System Restore point before uninstalling the old driver in preparation for the new driver, but it seems uninstalling the old driver caused the new driver not to install.

This is the usual way to do this, uninstall the old before installing new, but not in this case.

Once I did this, I was now able to install the new driver “over the top” of the old driver without any problems.

How To Restore Asus G53JW Back To Factory – Recovery Partition

PC Repair Augusta GA

The Asus G53JW does have a factory recovery partition to “clean” install the operating system. As always make sure to make recovery disks or system image after reinstalling, so you have a set. If your hard drive is failing or has failed, the recovery partition on the bad drive will be of no use to you. That’s when you will need your recovery disks or system image disk you made to reload the operating system.

After unpacking this laptop out of the box, it took 5 DVD’s to burn the recovery disk(s) image. With all the Asus software, drivers etc that is included in the factory recovery partition.
PLEASE NOTE: any of these procedures WILL ERASE ALL data from your computer. Make sure you keep backups of all important data at all times!

Super state of the art cooling system in this G53JW-A1 laptop. The CPU & GPU both have there own separate heatsinks, cooling fans AND exhaust vents. Rear left side exhaust cools and vents the CPU, the rear right side exhaust cools and vents the GPU. Intel Turbo mode automatically overclocks, and kicks in the cpu when needed. Have watched cpu meter jumpo from 1.7 Ghz to 3.2, and fluctuate back down and up as needed. You can also manually adjust throught the “Super Hybrid Engine Widget” by Asus with 4 preset settings: Battery Saver Mode, Quiet Office mode, Entertainment mode, and High Performance Mode.
