Windows 7: Asus G73SW slows down when running on Battery

25 Jul 2011   #11

MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

want some data on how much power your laptop is consuming on battery?

Install this program and do NOT touch the keyboard or mouse during the install and just be patent. The screen will go black for awhile. During the install the program is making calibration calculations. When the calibration is all finished, the program will say so.

Thanks karlsnooks. Arkhi, does your g73sw flicker when you unplug your AC cable? I am wondering if this is a hardware or software problem.

No, it doesn't flicker (I assume you mean it goes off and on). Only the backlight goes dimmer. Try updating your video drivers if that problem persists.
