It's been my experience as a warranty authorized tech for several manufacturers that in systems with an integrated battery the first step before doing any service is to disable the battery in the BIOS. I was going to install a second drive in my new G751JT and have yet to find a way to temporarily disable the battery. Is this step not necessary for installations on this model? Or have I missed something obvious?

Monica, I just purchased the G751JT, pulled the HDD and put in 2 Samsung 840, 500G SSD's, I did NOT remove or disable the battery. In the last 3 G750's I've owned, I've never pulled or disable the battery.

Realy good question. Is there a button to turn off battery, or it can be disabled through software?

Monica, I was told by Asus that as long as the power is off, there is no power to the motherboard or other components. Only the power switch is available to turn off power.

But on my G750JH, even with the power off there is power available at the USB ports for powering devices - is that true for the G751 as well? So that means power is available through the motherboard to the USB adapters with the battery installed.

I would ask Asus via a Technical Inquiry how to disable the battery completely to make sure.

Most internal battery computers have a cable to pull first before working on the internals, IDK if there is one for the G751, noone has mentioned this yet.
