Random Stuttering on ASUS G51JX?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I'm on an Asus G51JX-X2 that I bought in August 2010. Recently, it has been stuttering randomly. Sometimes, my music would stutter or youtube videos would stutter for 1-2 seconds. Mozilla sometimes stutters too. When it stutters, the screen sort of freezes up and then unfreezes showing everything I just typed. I'm not sure what's causing this, but it's been happening for the past couple weeks. Any tips/solutions for this problem?

EDIT: It's on "Power4Gear High Performance" for the power settings. I always run off AC power, so this problem isn't because it's on battery power or anything.

Bump, I really don't want to resort to reformatting.

Well, I just bought and returned an Asus G60 because as soon as I got it was stuck in headphone mode because of a faulty jack. I like Asus products, but I am extremely unhappy with their laptops. Possibly your problem stems from overheating. Also you might want to try a system restore, although I doubt that will help. Also you might want to check your memory and make sure they are seated correctly.

I've been using a Zalman NC-1500 the whole time since I got it and I just got a Cooler Master U3 yesterday. My CPU and GPU idles around 50c. While gaming, it shoots up to 70c for CPU and 90c for GPU. I read that this was normal. I haven't opened it up yet so I don't know about the dust part.

Open the back panel and access the cpu fan. On laptops it always builds up dust after a while and lowers system cooling performance. Good Luck

CPU should idle at around 35C to 40C and at load should be at 65C to 70C. 50C idle seems a bit too high for the CPU. For the GPU, it should idle at 55C to 60C and at load should be at 85C to 95C. That's really the normal range as far as the G51/G60 go.

Hmm, my CPU idles around 55-60c at the moment. I'll open it up as soon as I can find screwdrivers. Well, not idle but just web surfing with AIM and Firefox open.

I got a quick question before I open up my laptop. Is vacuuming the inside safe or should I just blow the dust off instead?

Do both but make sure you aren't sucking up any loose parts.

NOW: Your problem is likely the GPU driver related? Is this the Nvidia or ATI model?
