Guys if I open the bottom screws of G751JT and remove the battery cover and keyboard will it void my warranty? There is a lot of dust under there and also in the battery section and I can't clean it using a pressurized air canister. If it doesn't is there a video on how to actually disassemble the laptop? I don't really want to send it to ASUS for repair and wait for them to return it to me :(.

I'm not sure, but first you have to pull up the back section with the speakers and cover for the battery, then you pry up the whole keyboard/top and work around to the front.

Be sure to pull out the dvd drive and get the 3 screws under there.

Thanks I didn't know about the DVD drive part, was just watching this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3x7px8mx5LU. It was pretty good, couldn't find any other videos about actual disassembly being done.

Its not considered a user serviceable area so they may void the warranty if they can tell you were in it. If you are careful and dont use metal tools to pry with then you should be OK. I cracked mine open to replace the OEM ram so I could have 4 sticks of all the same Crucial ballastix and even upong very close inspection you cant tell its been opened.

Here is a vid of a tear down of a G751L. shouldnt be too different.

Is there any Void warranty sticker that you are required to break while performing this action? If not then they can't really prove that you opened your laptop.

No void stickers. That's partially why I'm hoping a new set of buttons fixes my issue, only had a screwdriver kit to get in it, so there are some marks, but not too bad, if you end up with the same maybe you can just pass it off as wear and tear.

Isn't there some kind of paint on the screws to check if you opened it or not?

That's blue locktite, it keeps them from vibrating loose, they wouldn't be able to tell from that, or you could just buy some and dip each screw with some before putting it back in. Only costs a few bucks.

Just to reaffirm, technically it is a warranty violation. However so long as you cause no damage there are zero indicators that you have opened the chassis. I sat and watched my warranty service and took some photos you can see over here that may help you a bit as well: https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?59354-G751JY-Disassembly-Pics
