    Two model, three times.

    1. Kingston: KVR1333D3S9/4G *2 (CL9, Hynix). You could find their pictures at #1
    2. G.Skill. I ask G.Skill swap the memories for me but it still crashes.

    I think that your laptop is using the Intel HD graphics 4000 video card. In BIOS set your main video card to Nvidia GT650m.

    I refresh the BIOS and set the shared memory to 64M. Now it seems stable.

    Sorry, I almost forget this post.
    Everything is OK except ram.
    I swap RAM three times from G.Skill and finally get N56VZ stable.

    .. so if asus didn't force the memory-timing and bus multipler, and simply relied on the spd-settings (like everyone else), this wouldn't have been a problem.

    And expanding to high speed 16Gb ram (or a low volt version, to save some 2-3w on idle) would have been painless.

    But nooo....

    Make sure you drop Asus support a note, by the way. I.e., "I bought really expensive ram, for some reason it doesn't work in your laptop, and there's no reason why it shouldn't. Will consider carefully whether I will buy asus in the future. Blablablah".

    I just purchased the Asus n56vz-ds71 and I'm having the same problem.

    With the recommendation of GenTech PC, I switched the ram to 2x8GB (CMSX16GX3M2A1600C10) and I also installed a Crucial M4 256GB SSD 3G.

    I updated the bios to 211 and installed the latest drivers from Intel.com and nvidia.com (as of Sept 12, 2012).

    I've had crashing issues in Need for Speed the Run and COD Modern Warfare 3 similar to what appears in the the youtube video.

    I just noticed that NVidia published new drivers today so I will try them now and report any changes...

    OK I updated my NVidia drivers from 306.02 beta to 306.23 whql and the problem seems to have gone away.

    I have been playing NFS the run and COD MW3 for about an hour continuously without any issues... I'll post again if the problem comes back.

    Well it took a little longer than usual, but after all my PC crashed while player F1 2011 about 15 minutes into the game...

    I will try playing with the NVidia control panel settings and if that doesn't work, I'll try putting back in my stock memory.

    OK I set NVidia CP to choose my GT 650m as default 3D card and it still crashed in F1 2011.

    I then ran a "memtest" using a program from the internet (Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool) and it showed that my 16GB memory is all OK.

    Now I will put the stock memory back in the laptop and see if that fixes it.... what a pain.

    ^ but many thanks for going through it and documenting what you've done, along with explaining what happens.
