Hello everyone!
I purchased a certified refurbished G75VX laptop about a month ago and it basically works fine. But one thing makes me very curious about - when I was performing a fan filter cleaning few days ago, I noticed that one screw is missing near the GPU cooling system. I have a question to G75VX owners - can you check it and answer me if this screw is sitting there in your units or it isn't? I have posted some photos of this area below to help you with finding this screw. If it's missing only in my particular unit, I can put it back there (I have many "donors" - old and dead laptops, so I can easily get the right one) but I am not sure if I'm supposed to do that.
Thanks in advance for Your answers!
Cheers!

Thanks for a quick reply! I tried to find some answers before creating this thread, but nobody ever asked about this.

I just did some research and now I see that it's one of screws responsible for holding a GPU board to the motherboard so I assume it's not necessary to use it (that's why Asus didn't put it there), as you can see on that picture: http://itbbs.pconline.com.cn/photo.do?fid=300335&tid=15420546&seq=53&pid=133488717

If any of You are interested in a full G75 teardown with HQ photos, you can find it right here (it's in Chineese, but pics are the most important here) -> http://itbbs.pconline.com.cn/notebook/15420546.html
