I need advice or suggestions on upgrading my screen on my G750JX. My first concern is can up use a screen to display at 120HZ because the stock 60hz sux balls and if I can what would work with my G750JX-TB7 brand and model number please. Also is it really hard to do this upgrade and if anyone knows of any vedios out there or should I just take to my local laptop shop. I still want to use the Matte screen but if anybody on ROG forum has used a glossy screen please tell. Also what type did you buy brand and model number Thanks homies.

Didn't tried it, but:

-120Hz screen uses same LVDS interface as 60 Hz
-your board does not have 3D functionality

given above factors, yes, you can get 120Hz screen, but you cannot get 3D vision unless you upgrade mobo, which is highly discouraged by ASUS (though not entirely impossible, have done this trick on few older lappies, which had dead mobo so the fix was to buy another anyway)

No, you cannot change to a 3D screen : 3D screen connector is 50 pin ; non-3D is 40 pin.

Well i am sure i have seen a site where seller claimed that he sells 120Hz screens for those and they are 40pin... So he was misleading potential customers and sold glossy 60Hz as 120Hz screens?

So what should I do just leave the stock screen because honestly it not that bad and vertical line issues is no more since all the updates. Or changed the screen and hope I get a real 120HZ screen but I don't even know where to buy one for my model

Why do you want 120 Hz?

because it looks better when I'm gaming such as COD ghost titan falls. Every time I up the hz on my G750 to 75 or 80 my screen cant handle and it starts spazzing out. So I thought about up grading the screen.

Depending on where you are trying to game, it would be much easier to just buy a 3rd party monitor and use the external display either by display port or HDMI. That would be the easiest option. I havent seen these panels taken apart but I have heard glue can be involved in some of them. Taking one apart Im not sure you could get it back together and have it look good. Not something I would attempt anyway.

fab5yo, if you have an AUO screen the max stable, and the spec for 1920x1080, is 70hz. My JH has an AUO and 70hz works great.

I'm also interested in replacing my screen, I want a beautiful glossy screen.

The b173hw01 v.4 and v.5 have good reviews

Just so you know, guys : replacing the screen will NOT eliminate the lines/dots/grids/whatever you see, IF it's that you are concerned about.

Otherwise, any 17.3 " non-3D 40-pins screen will do the trick. LG makes some : the LP173WF1 series. (WF2 is 120Hz 3D 50-pins)

There really is not a glaring difference between 60 Hz and 120 Hz in overall image quality. You may eliminate a bit of image ghosting, but quality comes down to a lot more than the refresh rate. 120 Hz panels are necessary for decent 3D displaying, but beyond that, a 60 Hz monitor can still look great if you find one with good specs.

I don't have lines, I just have one dead pixel and I also rather have glossy than matte.

No, this is absolutely incorrect. Both the 2D and the 3D screens use a 40-pin connector but the 3D screens use embedded displayport (eDP) whereas the 2D screens use LVDS.

If you connect the 120hz eDP screen to the 2D LVDS port, you will most likely damage either the screen, the motherboard or both because the pinouts and voltages are different. If you want to upgrade to a 3D screen, you need to get a motherboard that has the appropriate interface (i.e. a connector soldered to the area labeled 3D on the motherboard).
