    I had the same issue with a 4820TG purchased from Amazon. The second laptop had a screen from a different manufacturer. You can take your chances and return it and hopefully get a different screen.

    Same advice I gave to gihad. My replacement 4820TG doesn't have issues with graininess but the colors are dull. I had to calibrate the monitor b/c my panel had a VERY noticeable blue cast.

    From what I've seen so far, it looks like a lot of the crappy panels are coming from AUO.

    So far I have no problem with my screen and I order it from amazon. Maybe this is a random defect?

    stock is 550/800, yours is at 100/150 because powerplay is on (open catalyst control center and disable it)

    YMMV as to overclock, i recommend increasing in small increments (25-50MHz) until you start experience lockups or crashing

    watch your temps while OCing (hwmonitor, gpu-z)...and test max temps with furmark and/or in connection with prime95

    i was able to get 750/1100 stable

    still seems to be an issue, clearly an audio driver issue since it occurs both out of hphones or speakers

    There is one for the 3820TGs. I think it's posted on the first page of the owners thread. It works perfectly on mine. It should work for the 4820TG but I can't be sure.

    So I've been having an issue with my TimelineX 4820TG. Sometimes when I'm in the middle of a game (starcraftII) the screen will go black and I will be taken to the desktop again (as if I minimized or alt-tab'ed the game). I notice after this happens the fan tends to kick in quite loudly. What could this be?
