Hopefully someone can give me the final answers.

1. Can you easily replace the wireless card with this model?

2. Lot of freezing

3. The color issue I am having.
- Grey items have a brown tint to it.
- Things like Outlook, instead of a grey/white bar, it's brown.
- In all the Apps the white is replace with brown. it's almost like a High contrast theme, or an old windows 3.1 theme.

I tried changing themes, reinstalled drivers, re-installed windows. and it's all the same

or is everything related to Windows 10 anniversary update? since that's what came with it.

Here are some images

Hopefully someone has an answer to this.

Thank you

1. ASUS likes to make the G series laptops annoying to take apart, but once you do the wireless card shouldn't be any harder to replace than another laptop.

2. Can you provide any more details on the freezing? When it is happening, how long it happens, etc.

3. Your screenshots look normal. My suggestion would be to open the Splendid Utility and see if you can adjust the colors from that, which others have seen as the cause for weird colors.

the freezing takes a few seconds and then it moves on, or sometimes the program will not even start, and then all the sudden i have like 4 applications open.
I just installed Windows 10 NON anniversary and the screen seems to be better

See the difference ? it's a lot

edit: nvm.... in Chrome it looks fine, in explorer it's still brown.




The speed is still crappy.. but that's probably the wireless card... didn't you have issues with that?

Guess I was wrong
the color is on the laptop itself, when i look at the images on a pc or other laptop it's all fine, even pictures taken on a good laptop the white is showing brownish..
I tried so many repair, re-installs, drivers, settings etc.. I am done...

After 4 days of being frustrated with the color, slow speed, disconnecting WiFi, randomly freezing, and super lagging when i play a video and do something in the background..
I never had problems with my G75VW, but this one is nothing but problem..

I've opened my G751JT a couple of times. If you manage to open it up, exchanging the Wireless card should be no problem, it's like any other, just a couple of cables to unplug.

could someone do me a HUUUGGGEEEE favor.

I made a pic with my phone of what I am seeing: https://www.dropbox.com/s/vl5ph84tpel9d1k/20160910_234136.jpg?dl=0

Can someone make a pic with his phone from this site: https://games.eurocazino.com/games/play.php?id=0&game=randomrunner

it's the same slot machine. The Reels are offwhite.. NOT like the brown color seen in my image from my phone.

I just want to see how someone else sees it on his screen on the same Laptop.
So I know 100% to return it to Bestbuy and get a new one from http://www.hidevolution.com/asus-g751jy-vs71.html

Thank you so much for you help
