    Since this falls under G73JH problems, figured I'd post here.

    Anybody having a squeaky left Ctrl key? I do a fair bit of Photoshopping and everytime I press the Ctrl button and release, it squeaks.

    Hold it down for 0.65 seconds and lift up. *squeak*
    Hold it for longer and its fine. :D

    I'm blaming the shoddy quality of the chiclet keyboard (as opposed to other gaming notebooks of this class)

    oh yeah? well I just managed to get
    the latest Realtek 2.49 driver working with a Sound Blaster X-Fi MB install on the g73, fixing all the freezes and improving on the stock Sound Blaster Audigy ADVANCED MB.

    is that bleeding edge enough for you? :cool:

    Nosir, no squeaking here, not even with a mouse.

    OK, so where did you get the X-Fi MB install package?

    I do, sir... Just got it a few days back and already the left ctrl is squeaky, makes a loud click and the area of the keyboard near it has a lot of flex!! D,R,T,Y and C keys keep slanting left and not staying straight also.:( Guess I need a new keyboard. DAMN you ASUS... what great quality!!!:mad:

    Flex is a common issue with the G73 IMO..but what about the keys moving in awkward angles?? Its not supposed to be moving up and down from the corners..:confused:

    I am even terrified to game on it since even the "D" key is affected.. dont want to strafe right in game and have the D come off!!
