    Can anyone confirm that they have an Asus N53SV-XV1 WITH an e-sata port?
    mine came with none and the asus rep told me they never came with them. Thank you

    That is probably correct considering the Asus website for the N53SV and N53SN do not list an eSATA port.

    I just did this last night, after installing windows 7 i just used the driver disk that came with the machine and installed all mentioned drivers in the list ( you will see that after you pop that disk in). There will be a huge list of things you can install, just make sure you only select drivers and not Recommended Applications. I have also installed Power4Gear, ATI(or ATK i don't remember) and Intel Turbo monitoring app besides all the drivers.

    I ordered these yesterday:

    Amazon.com: Netgear N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router WNDR3700: Electronics
    Amazon.com: Intel 6200 IEEE 802.11n (draft) Wi-Fi Adapter - Mini PCI Express - 300Mbps: Electronics

    I will install these tonight and will let you know how it goes. Will also take pictures of the process to share

    I just got myself an N53SV and am having troubles with the GT 540M. It won't detect it no matter which drivers I install on it... (tried quite a few)

    It's defaulting to the integrated graphics. How do I change it to use the dedicated graphics?

    Thanks!

    I never could until just now. I think the problem I have right now is that the laptop display is using the integrated... so my only question is how to change it to dedicated. Sorry for such a simple question!

    Hey all!!!
    I am going to buy the N53SV probably next week. I am really, though, not sure if it will be FHD or not. Can you guys advise me on subject. Is it needed at that size of screen, did any of you make a real side by side comparison?

    thanks for any info...
