Your UEFI/BIOS (version G73Jh.209) dates from 2010. Please check at the manufacturer's website to see if there are any UEFI/BIOS updates available for your system. If you are able to install the update through Windows (without booting from an external drive), then go ahead and update it. WARNING - if the computer might shut down during this procedure, please don't do it, as this may physically damage the computer and prevent it from booting.
Only 2 Windows Update hotfixes installed. Most build 10586 (TH2/1511) systems have more than this. Please visit Windows Update and get ALL available Windows Updates.
The actual number is not important. Rather it's important that you checked manually, installed any available updates, and didn't experience any errors when checking or updating.
This device is disabled in Device Manager:
Qualcomm Atheros AR8131 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller (NDIS 6.30) PCI\VEN_1969&DEV_1063&SUBSYS_18201043&REV_C0\FF8B9751485B39FF00 This device is disabled.
Please re-enable it, then update it's drivers to the latest, W10 compatible version. After updating it, feel free to disable it again.
These are the only significant problems that I see with the system.
If this doesn't fix things, then you'll have to consider that:
- the system may not be compatible w/W10 (the test is to reinstall the original OS and see if the problems go away)
- there may be a hardware problem. (both of my kids had G73 type systems (can't recall the exact model tho') and they had hardware problems with the video cards)
