    What panel did you install in there? Did you have to change anything such as cable? What if you switch back? This is just to verify if the original panel would exhibit the same symptom or not.

    I didn't install any panel. Just connected monitor (acer xb321hk with IPS).

    Use a better quality of DP cable. Have you also tried HDMI?

    HDMI version on monitor is only 1.4 so no way for 60hz.

    Today I'm using 59hz (have both 59 and 60 options, not sure why) through DP and only had problem when connected phone to laptop through usb, signal got lost for 2-3 seconds. This signal losings seems random.
    Maybe I will try to find shorter mDP to DP cable.

    Is it possible to remove DVD rom and install HDD instead? (I'm using SSD)

    Yes you can, but you need something like this.

    Hi guys!
    Today my laptop didn't boot as usual.

    Black monitor, no ASUS screen. Power button was lit, as the power led, the battery led, and the wifi led. No sign from the hdd led, and upon pressing the caps lock button, its led wouldn't turn on.

    I followed this steps:
    - unplugged the cable
    - took RAM off and put it back on
    - unplugged the SSD and put it back on
    - pressed for 20 seconds the power button
    - removed the battery

    Everything to no avail.

    Then I tried to remove the CMOS battery, and after having waited for some minutes placed back on.
    After this, upon pressing the power botton, nothing happens anymore.
    Totally no signs of life: no led, no charger led, nothing.

    What should I do? It seems strange that CMOS battery forbids my computer to turn on, not even showing the battery charging led.

    I replaced original WIFI card because it was pretty bad (disconnects, losing signal, bad signal, low speed etc..) and changed it with intel AC 7260. Now signal is better but disconnects are still happening
    I'm using win10 64 with latest intel drivers (tried reinstalling but didn't fix). Wireless adapter is on "maximum performance", "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" is off.
    Tried resetting IP settings and many other suggestions I could google but problem is still there.
    I connect to wifi, sometimes lose it after 30 sec, sometimes after 3 min, then it's back, then again lost.. anyway, almost never stable for 1h.
    Sometimes after drop it happens that the network gets lost from the WIFI networks list (can see other networks) and come back in 30-60sec. The problem is not with the network since my phone is connected ok. Also I tried in another house and same problem.
    Actually, most of the time phone is connected to laptop with usb cable to share internet to it because laptop's WIFI is not stable for me to use it.
    I opened laptop, reinserted card and checked that antennas are connected good.

    Have you also looked into issues with the wireless AP? And what about other wireless devices that are sharing the same AP?

    I see, but that does not mean the firmware is up-to-date as it may work with certain radio chips but not well with some.
    Also, you can try USB-type of wireless adapter and see how it behaves.
