Did you buy it from BestBuy - or from someone who bought it at BestBuy?
Yeah I got it from bestbuy
OK - Asus makes a distinction at their support site. I am in the middle of moving and it is time to eat. Back soon.

Went Back

I had a stuttering video (every 20 minutes, kernel would crash and re-start), DVD drive would only be recognized every once and a while and would fail with Windows 7. I did everything by the book when upgraded, new BIOS, new drivers, even went to safe mode and deleted prior drivers for no conflicts, etc, etc.

I re-formatted and did a second clean win 7 install. I gave up, went back to 64 bit Vista and on my G50VT it works perfectly. I got Win 7 as a gift, and I gave it a very good effort to get it to work. But I hate constant tweaking, and hate bugs... I spent too much money on this computer to not have it work and do things like video well, that is exactly why I got this model.

I want to love Win 7, I am sure it is awesome on newer machines.
