Spaz's ASUS Rant

Postby Spaz » Thu May 10, 2018 4:40 pm

Just wanted to rant about my current computer issues:

Bought a nice ASUS ROG G752 laptop for about 4K a few years ago thinking it would be nice. Little did I know the headache it would cause.

Apparently Windows 10 has an issue with the combination of Intel Motherboard and the NVMe style Samsung SSD that ASUS used to build their laptop. This combo prevented my laptop from being able to update to the recent versions of Windows 10. I've been stuck on Windows 10 1607 (July 2017) since July 2016, and Windows forces you to update every year, so a few months ago my computer finally became virtually unusable and I was forced to wait until April for Windows 10 1803 to be released, which was then delayed twice. I finally had to do a clean install, due to the aforementioned issue and now have to re-initialize all my settings.

I reached out to both companies, Microsoft and ASUS, and they both pointed the finger at each other. Ultimately, I was the victim and had to do a full clean install instead of being able to do a simple upgrade.

That is what I have been dealing with the past few months and has been why I haven't been able to upload any of my world famous image uploads.

You can see this thread to see the volume of people this affected and who had no help from either company: https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?92349-Windows-Creator-Update-Installation-Failure-on-GL502VS-workaround/page32

Ouch.

Still could have been worse. Could have been a Dell.

Strange, I have the same laptop (g752VY) and I had no problem with that update (apart from some drivers needing to be reinstalled).

Maybe the fresh install I did when I accidentally deleted the administrator account helped? After my first month of stupid mistakes and headaches, it's been acting pretty good.

Reminds me of when my ASUS laptop was my only choice of computer.
It‘s network adapter was screwed for some reason, causing the laptop to download things in such a random manner that I wasn’t even sure if it would download at all. I even tried to connect it over an ethernet cable, with no results whatsoever. (On Steam for example, while downloading games, it would download about 50 Megabytes before the download speed collapsed to a few Kilobytes, or it would just stop downloading entirely.)
Making manips on it was a nightmare, as it couldn‘t even handle Photoshop. Plus I had to download source images on the slow fucker.
Thank god I upgraded to a desktop.

Though the laptop still comes in handy as I‘m currently on vacation.
