So I got my G751JT and I am super stoked to finally have it!

I did the quick install or whatever so that I could check for dead pixel and screen bleed. I don't think I have any of either. I didn't check for USB or speaker problems because I have read that is fixed with driver updates.

I have never used 3D Mark or anything to check the CPU and GPU temperatures (under a load like 3D mark I assume). I was wanting to check that before the next step...

Then the "next step" I was talking about was going to be after I tested everything for functionality, figuring out how to do a fresh install of Windows 8.1 without any other programs added. I am going to get a SSD, so I was going to install onto that.

I was looking at picking this SSD up at Best Buy tonight so I could do some of this tonight.
PNY - Optima 240GB Internal Serial ATA III Solid State Drive for Laptops - Multi
Model: SSD7SC240GOPT-RB SKU: 8193026
Cost: $90

Is there a better brand or recommended option for a SSD? I am looking to stay +/- $100 for around a 250gb SSD.

I have no experience wiping a computer and doing a fresh install of the operating system, but I have watched a guide on youtube for installing windows 8.1.

Hope to get some replies so I can get this thing running smooth soon!

Thanks!

I downloaded 3D Mark Demo version I guess and got a score of 6552 on Fire Strike.

Edit: No updated drivers or anything and the laptop was plugged in.

Going to pick up that SSD, then going to class and will be home in a few hours. I have the back plate off of the laptop at the moment and it looks like there is a caddy for the ssd, so I hope I dont have to modify anything for it to stay in place. I dont see a tutorial fora G751 on youtube but it seems there is one for a G750 so I will just watch that

What is the first step that I must do to install the SSD and harddrive in order to wipe the computer clean for a fresh install of windows 8.1 on the SSD? I can't find a step by step for this in one place despite a lot of searches.

I put SSD in the left bay, which I know is the boot drive bay, so obviously it wont boot up now. Do I keep harddrive in left bay and SDD in right and then boot up and then somehow transfer data to SSD in order to be able to transfer the SSD to the left bay to be my boot drive so that I can then uninstall everything and do a fresh install of W8.1 on the SSD?

I guess I am downloading an iso file from Windows.Microsoft.com and will put it onto a DVD in order to install onto the ssd? How should I go about clearing the harddrive to use for storage once I make the ssd the boot drive with the operating system? If I'm screwing this stuff up big time, someone please chime in

I downloaded the iso file and put the SSD into the boot drive bay and did a fresh install of windows 8.1 onto that SSD. Obviously now I have no programs that originally came with the computer. I hooked my 1tb harddrive that came with the computer into the 2nd bay. How should I go about moving programs that I would like to keep onto my SSD that might be nice to have on this computer? Such as the ASUS ROG items and NVIDIA. Do I just cut and paste from program files? Or do I need to go find these programs elsewhere on the internet and download them straight onto the SSD?

Edit: Will wait until morning when I may get a reply, not sure what I should do now. Many things dont work such as the ROG macro and who knows what else since those pre installed programs arent on the new SSD.
Thanks for the assistance.

I am trying to update BIOS to 206, so I download the zipped file and then extract and I am getting just one 6146kb file that I don't know how to run in order to update the BIOS? It looks nothing like what I am looking at for a guide to update BIOS.

What else should I download from asus after the fresh install?

Thanks Boaz, I will try that. I know how to get into the bios, just wasnt sure how to update it.

Edit: extracted files onto USB, went into bios, did easy flash, now I succesfully have BIOS 206.

I will now find what other files I need to get from asus to allow the macro key to work and whatever else was from asus that I lost

To get into the bios, I followed the steps in this video, it is short and directly to the point.

Boaz, I saw you had a thread about the latest g751jy drivers. Are those the recommended drivers to install after a fresh install of the operating system? I'm going through picking out what I think I need to download from the asus site, but I don't want to forget anything that I may need. Or should I just download almost everything? Like under wireless and bluetooth for example I don't know what I should download. Same with what is under "others" and "chipset"

well those are old now as i got told its better to use the asus ones so i recommend you to install all the drivers from the asus support page the only new driver u rly need is the nvidia ones from nvidia.com but i recommend you to go to guru3d and look there as they leak driver alot, but that is just me and what i think

Yeah, I am at the asus support page for drivers.

http://www.asus.com/Notebooks_Ultrabooks/ASUS_ROG_G751JT/HelpDesk_Download/

I just mean, should I install everything? Or what should I install or not install (whichever list is shortest). I have downloaded what I think I need from the utilities section, but other than that, I don't know what else I should download and install.

Edit: I have installed basically everything except stuff from the "Wireless", "Bluetooth", and "Others" subcategories on the page linked above. I don't know if I should download all of that stuff, none of it, or just one or two things?
Help with these late items would be great

I think I should do a backup with asus backtracker onto a flash drive soon. Does it create the same information that I made whenever I made a disk to do a fresh install of windows 8.1 or is it different?

Also if anyone knows what I should download from the above post in Wireless, Bluetooth, and Others, that would help
