Fix for Asus G60Jx/GTS 360M errors
Hi people. This is my very first post here. I wonder, for those that still have the G60Jx, like myself, did you ever fix it? Well, here is my solution.
Also here, Nvidia GTS 360 in Asus g60jx
the problem with the GTS360m and the Asus G60Jx is the memory clock. Yes, the graphics memory clock. The readings are usually
The problem is simple, at a voltage of 0.850, those settings will work fine. You'll never get a BSOD or "graphics has recovered" error. It will work just fine. The voltage above can only be achieved artificially by using the laptop in battery mode. So the moment you plug it into power, it shifts to 1.000v. This is where the problem is. The default settings will not function at that voltage and the G60Jx does not allow manual controls of the voltage settings.
So what to do? Simple. Reduce the memory clock.
My readings are (at P0/P8/P12 Level respectively)
I put these settings under stress test and they came out fine. No BSOD, no "graphics recovered" errors EVER! However I noticed that even putting the memory clock to 1682mhz, caused the errors and BSOD to return. So my take is that Asus overclocked the memory and did not fully test it with the voltages.
How to fix it?
1. Download nVidia Inspector.
2. Create a shortcut to the desktop, right click the shortcut and click properties.
3. In the target area, add this to the end "-showFermiClocks" (without the quotes obviously). Click OK and open the shortcut
4. In the clocking section, select the dropdown list and ensure it is on "Performance Level 2 (P0)" (This performance level is the highest, and is matched to the voltage setting of 1.000v).
5. Reduce the memory clock to 1680 (that's the best I got for my system)
6. Click "Create Shortcut Clocks"
7: Repeat from Point 4 with (P8) (P8 is the second highest and is matched to the voltage setting of 0.850v). Select the clocks you want to P8 Level. Mine are 550/1680/1323
8: Click "Create Shortcut Clocks"
9: IMPORTANT! VERY IMPORTANT! Ensure that when you click those shortcut clocks, that nVidia Inspector is telling you that current clocks are 135/135/270. This way, all the settings above will flow in properly. The downside of running the shortcut clocks when the current clock is at 550/1800/1323 or 405/324/810, is that they will be applied, yes, BUT chances are that the memory clock will be applied at 324mhz. And you'd have to restart your comp so that it gets back to default. It wont cause any malfunction but your memory clock will be slow when gaming. Apply the shortcut clocks when at P12 level. It is advised.
If anyone gets stuck anywhere, just post and I'll see where I can help out.
Cheers! Say goodbye to BSOD.

Hey I just made a account to say thank you. The only thing was I had to start the program then make a shortcut from inside the program. Then I had to right click go to target and where it said memory clock I manually changed it to 1680 and saved. I think I got confused when you said repeat from Point 4, you mean step 4 or something in the program? Anyways its working and no more BSOD thank you so much.
