    G75VW - Motherboard differences

    I have a G75 with that assumed had a bricked bios. Replaced the bios chip but still wont start so I will try to replace the motherboard.

    There is alot of them on ebay with different PN.
    From what I can see the main difference is 2D or 3D screen connector.

    I have a 2D 1920 x 1080 screen and the motherboard is a Rev 2.4 one with black cpu socket. The PN is 1400-C04 which seems to be the most expensive one out there ($200)


    Ive seen a bunch of others with 2D screen connector and I wounder if they would fit?

    All G75vw laptops have the same bios and all have S989 cpu socket.

    Does anyone have info regarding the differences between the motherboards?

    //Chris



    UPDATE!

    I bought a motherboard with PN 60-N2VMB1400-C03
    The motherboard in my laptop has allmost the same numbers - 60-N2VMB1400-C04
    Only C03 and C04 that differs...
    Well see how it goes - crossing my fingers that the laptop will post after the replace!

    The G75VW was produced for about 1 year with several upgrades, in the beginning there was the Standard 2 D screen the 3D model, I'm not really sure on most of these but at the end they did support TB the early models did not. Sorry I can't be more help than this.

    All info is preciated
    Mine has the TB connection and it´s manufactered in 2012.
    All motherboards on ebay comes with the TB connection so I guess there all updated ones.
    The difference between 3d and 2d motherboards is the screen connector - the 3d one uses the outer one and 2d the inner one.

    The motherboard I ordered is Rev 2.4 - the same that I have.

    I wounder if Asus motherboards has different PN depending on which hardware was used - different gpu/cpu´s etc. ?

    Well see how it goes, felt so bad to throw this laptop away since it performing pretty well.
    I really hope it´s the motherboard that gone bananas and not the quite new screen or gpu.
    Tryed to boot it without the gpu mounted - only difference was that the cpu fan was spinning at full speed.
    Tryed to start it with hdmi cable attached but no difference. Also tryed the CTRL + HOME thing with bios placed on root of the harddrive.

    Yes they all have the connection which for most all G75VW only had Mini Display, Thunderbolt hardware was not installed. back then in 2012 we all thought we were getting TB but no one did until the very end of the G75VW's the G75VX which came out at the end of 2012 did have the TB

    My 660m got new thermal paste.
    The new motherboard will arrive between Feb 8 and 10.
    Im really existed to get this laptop running again, been in pieces for allmost 2yrs now

    I will probably attach a external egpu (beast v8) along with a 980 gpu and see how it perform.

    Yes 660m gpu came on the 3D models, have never used either Mini DP or TB so I have no idea. I have Both TB and USB3.1 on C type on my G752 probably won't ever use them. Well maybe in a bit

    To make it even more confusing. 660m came with 2d screen aswell in Europe

    How does ure G752 perform in games like GtaV in 1080p ?

    Just got hold of a gtx970 standard gpu. I will probably buy a GDC Pci-e adapter and try it out Hopefully it works with the internal screen, otherwise I have to connect a external one.
    My laptop will be used for Kodi and Plex if I get it running.
    The 3610 and 660m with 16gb ram should be enough for playback 4k video. I will probably play some games like cs:go, BF4, BF1 and Gta V.
