Q: ASUS Notebook Drivers

Hey I have ASUS Notebook X59SR series and I installed the new windows 7. The drivers I have are for Vista 32bit. A friend told me to install them in compatibility mode and they would work for windows 7. Can anyone tell me if it will work because I can't find drivers for windows 7 for my notebook?

Preferred Solution: ASUS Notebook Drivers

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hello Mlad,

Welcome to Seven Forums.

I have had no problems installing Vista drivers in Compatibility Mode.

My almost 3 year old Asus X52 F3SV Notebook suddenly froze and shut itself down today. It will not boot past the 'Asus' logo screen. The furthest it got was 'loading windows', but quickly rebooted once that screen showed up.
It has been running quite hot lately, but i cleaned the fan out last weekend, and it had been running without problem since then.
I'm running Windows Vista Premium, with no other real problems until now, with up to date windows updates and regular Spybot and anti-virus scans.
There were random multicoloured lines running through the Asus screen on the first reboot after freezing. Could it be my graphics card? (Nvidia 8600m). I did not hear any crackling/popping sounds, so I really hope it's not dead yet.
I've looked around these forums, but couldn't find a similar problem/solution.

Thank you.

A:Asus x52 F3SV notebook not booting past Asus screen

Try running Bios defaults

This settings area can be called:
Bios Setup
CMOS Settings
System Setup
even just Setup
You can enter it by pressing the keyboard key that is displayed on your screen when first turning on your computer
Its sometimes:
A Fn Button like F1, or F2, or F10 or some other Fn key
DEL key
(whatever the computer states on screen when you first turn on your computer)
Once in Bios Setup, locate Setup Defaults (sometimes called Optimized Defaults)
Apply it, then Save and Exit Bios Settings (which is usually F10, but it will tell you in the Bios Settings screen)

If that doesn't help try reming and re-seating your Ram cards (even your hard drive)
You can download your Manual to find the locations of these components, but they are usually located under the laptop, under the covers

If it is your Video card (onboard) then that was be a big concern
You may need to locate the disassemble guide online, then blow out all internal dust

It may also require a CheckDisk scan
You can read HERE on how to do that outside Windows

So I recently just replaced my Asus P6X58-E WS with another Asus P6X58-E WS from Amazon. I always remember hearing to ignore the drivers disk on CD that comes with product and go straight to web-sight and gather latest. (I ALWAYS keep CD for just in case moments) When I was running Win7 last year on old MB, this was never a issue and downloaded drivers from Asus web site, but when I recently went to the Asus drivers download site, there are no options for win8? (Screen Shot Below)
Here Is my problem... After Installing new MB and testing OS operations with only my SSD pluged in (OS win8 is on SSD) everything was working great!! this also confirmed a few of my last MB memory slots were fried because I had 18GB of memory installed but BIOS & OS was telling me I had only 6GB.. Im back @ 18GB now...
I also had QTY6 1TB-HDD I was using with previous MB ( No raid configurations) I record music and many project files can get very big so, each HDD was dedicated to different "IMPORTANT" things. Well, after confirming OS win8 was in working order, I powered down and plugged in all 6 HDD, then powered back up. (I wish I would have done this one HDD at a time now) only 2 are being recognized!!! I keep getting the message....
"you must initialize a disk before logical disk manager can access it"
Now, from what I've gathered from a Google search, this is what you would do to format a NEW hard drive, Correct? I then was reading its as simple as downloading lates... Read more

A:NEW!! Asus P6X58-E WS MB. No Win8 Drivers on Asus website?

From what I found on the Asus site....
ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download P6X58-E WS
They are only providing drivers up to Windows 7 64 Bit. You can go to the file manager and click one time on the primary HDD and then click computer tab and from there click on manage. From there you click device manager and you will get a list of your hardware. You can right click on each one and click update driver and the system will try to find the updated driver for you. If anything you now have your hardware name and can try to get the updated driver through the actual company who builds the drivers.

It also does sound like you may need to format the HDD's. Do the same thing but instead of clicking on device manager you will click on disk management and you can right click on each drive and select to format. Just make sure to not format the primary partition if that is even possible.

I have an Asus Lamborghini VX1 notebook that came preloaded with Vista Ultimate 32.

I recently upgraded to Vista x64.

Most of the drivers are ok, barely. The one main driver I can not seem to resolve is the Display Driver. Device Manager names it a standard graphic adapter, though I know it is a Geforce 7400 by nvidia.

I have downloaded a driver from nvidia manually and trying to install, it tells me I dont have Vista running.

I tried automatically detecting on nvidia and it advises to visit Asus website.

I visited Asus and could not find any drivers matching a 64bit version.

Has anyone any ideas?

A:Asus Notebook

Please ensure you are downloading this driver :

GeForce Release 178

If the problem persists, look in Add/Remove Programs and see if nVidia is referenced in there. If so, uninstall it, reboot, and try reinstalling the driver set.

If that doesn't apply or does not work, go into Control Panel - Device Manager and right click on your Display Adapter and click "uninstall". Again reboot, and try reinstalling the driver set.

You mean NETbook. If you're trying to burn songs from itunes that have DRM (digital rights management) you cannot burn those to disk. You can only play them with itunes or your apple device. They won't burn to disk and if copied to another device, they won't work.

A:Asus notebook problem ..

First of all - welcome to BC !
Assuming you have working antivirus already installed then perhaps the following, all available from BC as free downloads. If you don't have working A/V then selecting and installing one is your first priority !  I use the following but there are alternatives.
Ccleaner by Piriform. an excellent tool for removing temporary files which clutter up the system -
Note that one section of Ccleaner is a registry cleaner. You are strongly advised NOT to use these tools, see this image -
Then I would recommend the use of both Malwarebytes and Super AntiSpyWare which you can get respectively here -
Both of these come as free and paid for versions. The main difference is that with the free ones you have to run the scans yourself and they do not offer real time scanning. They are both anti-malware products but with a slightly different emphasis on the threats they search for. Have a look at them and make up your own mind which is better for you - paid or free - but I would recommend the use of both.
Over and above that, since prevention is both better and easier than cure, practice safe surfing. Don't open e-mail attachments unless you ar... Read more

So I bought an ASUS X550LA notebook with an i7 processor, plenty of RAM and storage, Win 8.1. Thinking such a sweet processor would work well, even for gaming for my grandson, I assumed the graphics would be just fine and didn't explore it. Oops. It uses onboard graphics, max resolution 1366 x 768. My fault, I know. Is there anything I can do to improve the graphics? Is there space for a graphics card in one of these laptops? Thanks for any assistance. Learned the hard way on this one.

A:ASUS Notebook Graphics

Hi and welcome to TSG.

Unfrotunately, with a notebook you are pretty much stuck with what you have in the way of hardware.

It looks like that model has Intel HD 4400 graphics which is pretty low end and only really up to the task of internet browsing, office, email etc in my opinion.

My Asus Eee notebook (XP Home edition OS) will not shut down normally. I have to use the power button to shut it down. We have traced it to the Weatherbug program. To shut down we have to remove Weatherbug by using cntrl/alt/delete to remove it from the processors running. Then the notebook shuts down normally.
Anybody have a fix?

Hi folks thanks for all the help i got with the 1st post about the password .But i was wondering if anyone could help me with another problem that has arisen since then ,when i got this notebook/laptop there wasnt any power adaptor with it so i bought one for £12 and its running perfectly but one thing ive noticed is that it doesnt charge up the battery so i can use it without the power lead and ive went onto YT to check there videos out about the matter and everyone has a battery on the bottom that can be just clicked out easily ,but with mine its just a flat base and to see the batterry youd have to take the whole bottom of to see the battery but as i said i`m not to great with computers and was wondering if this is the right way to take the battery out ? hopefully someone can help me here as i`m totaly baffled by it thank you in advance to anyone who can help me .

A:Asus notebook problem ..

If you give us the make and model of this notebook we can look up the manuals / data sheets to see how or if the battery comes out. And how old it is.
Two possibilities come to mind. One is the battery could be 'cooked', ie too old to hold charge. The other is one I have seen on multi-voltage multi-computer chargers, chargers which are designed to work with a wide range of different laptops. This type of charger has a 'select voltage' switch on it and as a safety measure the manufacturers set it to the lowest level. Again, the manual will tell you what the input voltage should be and if the voltage is significantly below this it may run the computer but not have enough volts to charge the battery.
It is a sad fact of life that after a while all batteries lose their efficiency and if this notebook is over three years old this is a real possibility.

A:HELP with Asus F3Sc notebook

Go back to ASUS and download the Vista 64bit drivers for your model.
They should work. Try compatability mode if they won't install directly.

ASUSTeK Computer Inc.-Support-

After looking further you will need to download the Vista 32bit drivers and try installing in compatability mode.

They have over 40 items listed under 64bit but not one is a driver.

I recently purchased an ASUS notebook X-102BA and it is just the slowest thing. I installed firefox, thunderbird, macafee and VLC media player and don't know if these are the problem. Any ideas how I might find out what the problem is or is this a feature?
Thanks all for reading.

A:ASUS notebook very slow

Well, the CPU has about equivalent performance to an Intel Atom, and the system gets review comments like "modest performance even for a budget laptop" (http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/reviews/laptop/3498812/asus-x102ba-review/)
Did it seem slow before you installed the mentioned software? Not wanting to seem biased, but I'd try something different to McAfee...

See if you can upgrade to 3GB or 4GB of RAM and install Windows 7 RTM (OR RC) 64-bit.

I would use 64-bit but I had some heating issues so I went back to 32-bit and now its working perfectly.
I ran Crysis benchmark for 9 hours on 32-bit easily without a fan, but on 64-bit the system about blows after 10 minutes.

This issue was raised in another thread which was closed out before it was resolved. I have an ASUS Notebook K53e and I want to disable the touchpad on it which the specific make/model is ELAN PS/2 Port Smartpad. You should be able to do this with Fn+F9 however that keyboard function does not work on my computer as the guy in the previous thread. When I got to devmgmt.msc->Properties on the device->Driver , the "Disable" button is greyed out. I did not receive a driver CD with the machine I purchased . I need this thing disabled because it interferes with the typing very badly. Where do I go from here? Thanks,

Well, I just found the fix myself after posting this thread. You have to go to Control panel->Hardware and Sound->Devices & Printers-> Right click on the PC device->Mouse Settings->ELAN tab there is an option to Stop Device. Pain the arse mate

I have an ASUS X200CA Notebook PC. Today I pulled it out (haven't used it in months) and attempted to do a factory reset. At first I just turned it on, to make sure it was working before I performed the reset, and it came on just fine. Then I shut it off and turned it back on, this time while holding the F9 key. I may have been mistaken, but at the time I thought that was the correct way to do a factory reset. A menu came up and the options didn't match the instructions I was reading so I shut the thing off again. Then I tried to turn it back on, and this time it didn't come on. A few lights below the keyboard lit up and the notebook beeped, and then they went dark again. It does this every time I try to turn it on. Lights/tiny beep, then nothing. It's like it's starting to turn on and fails. The screen remains black the whole time. I've tried holding the button down for thirty seconds with the adapter plugged in, with the adapter not plugged in, taking the battery out, putting it back in, etc. Nothing works. Thanks in advance.

Hey Guys, i also have an Asus M51VR notebook with Vista Home Premium 32( ) just like a few of the other guys on the forum... I had this same problem as you guys already figured out with your icons disappearing; it is your power settings. You just need to change it from low or quiet to high or entertainment or make your own setting.I was just curious if you guys have now stumbled upon the same problem i have.The Real ProblemMy Audiodg.exe just started going haywire when i use any program that takes extreme audio support (games, movies, adobe programs, even internet & movies). I read that the problem comes mostly from our audio cards special settings are not supported for vista. Now, i decided to update my drivers for this Realtek HD onboard soundcard to solve that problem; but on their website you could only download with an FTP Server and all their passwords didnt work... it would time out so! I got the next best thing a later version of the driver on download.com. After installing it it did absolutely nothing. So then i set my soundcards output to decently low quality and updated vista os. My computer works as good as it did before when i had all these settings on high and im just upset that it cant handle as much as it could before just because my vista just went nuts... Anyone know the real solution to this problem?

Dear EightForums:

I've an ASUS N56D Notebook, which in more than 4 to 5 times, has had a BSOD. Please find enclosed, the information requested by you, in order to assist me as soon as possible. Thanks in advance.




The minidumps are all pointing to the driver: usbhub.sys which is your default hub driver for USB. Please make sure you use Windows Updates to make sure you are update and that you can't update any more. It may also be something plugged into your USB port that is causing the BSOD so try plugging and un-plugging see if you get any BSOD's.

You might want to update your chipset/motherboard drivers and any other drivers to Windows 8 64bit versions if possible by checking your manufacturers website:

ASUS - Notebooks- ASUS N56DP

I have also found some drivers you should consider updating or un-installing/removing if un-needed:

MarvinBus64.sys - likely a part of Pinnacle Studio's Marvin Bus: Driver Reference Table - MarvinBus64.sys
atkwmiacpi64.sys - ATK WMIACPI Utility: Driver Reference Table - atkwmiacpi64.sys
AiCharger.sys - Asus Charger Driver: Driver Reference Table - AiCharger.sys (this is known BSOD creator, please un-install it)

Hello people. I would like to request assistance. I need to disable the touchpad on my Asus G74Sx notebook. Is there some kind of program I can download that will allow me to disable the touchpad?

Pressing function F9 does not disable the touchpad, and going into the BIOS and disabling the internal pointing device also disables the keyboard, so that doesn't work for me.

I have downloaded all the drivers for my notebook numerous times, and I don't know what else to do to try to turn off this touchpad. Going into the control panel and disabling the touchpad that way, also doesn't work.

I run Windows 7 Home Premium.

I have a 6 month old Asus G73Jh with a history of games crashing since about 2 months into the computer's use. After the problem persisted for a month, I tried user end troubleshooting (including downloading drivers), but to no avail. I then happened upon a Youtube video of a gentleman who was apparently experiencing the same problem with the same model of computer: specifically, "vertical stripes of death" crashing with accompanying noise and required hard reboot.

This is detailed here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9bRZT0plK0o

After learning that he sent in his computer to Asus and had the video card replaced, which seemed to correct the problem, I did the same. Within two weeks I received the computer back with a note explaining that they had indeed replaced the video card.

Unfortunately, that did not seem to resolve the problem, and I still have VSOD crashing on a regular basis; I estimate that in roughly half of my gaming sessions, the computer will crash at some point within the first hour of play. I thought that it might have something to do with inadequate cooling (despite the fact that the notebook has very large fans), but the crashing behavior seems to defy that explanation: often games will crash almost immediately, within the first 5-10 minutes; if they get past that "danger zone" they are usually ok for at least an hour, at which point the instance of crashing increases again.

I am uncertain where to go from here, or if the... Read more

The power button isn't working.
The only way I can boot up is by booting into Asus Express Gate Cloud (which is a different button that starts this Asus mini-os with 4 apps) then pressing "switch OS" to boot into Windows 7.

But since Windows 7 is so slow, I decided to upgrade to Windows 10.
After upgrade it worked fine (although without performance improvement IMO), and restarted.
But after shutdown and starting the Asus Express Gate Cloud, the "switch OS" button does not work - leads to a black screen and remains stuck there until i take out the battery.

I just put my ASUS UL80VT notebook (Windows 7 64 bit) into hibernation for the first time but when I tried to bring it out I got an error message saying that there was a problem with the hibernation file and it was unable to recover properly. It did load eventually but when it did I found that my screen resolution had been set to 800x600 and limited to 1024x768 - checking the hardware status it says that there is a problem with the display adapters (Device Status: This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)). USB 2.0 has also been affected and the options for 'Sleep' and 'Hibernation' have been grayed out from the shut down menu. It might just be my imagination but, to cap things off, I think the system in general is running slower than it used to.

I tried downloading and re-installing the VGA drivers from the ASUS support site but it has absolutely no effect.

Not really sure what else to do at this point, any suggestions would be appreciated.

It isnt the "VGA" drivers you need. You need the full driver for your notebook and version of windows (64bit or 32)

Every so often when the computer is running, a series of beeps (typically four, although sometimes it's more erratic) can be heard through the built-in speakers on the notebook (if I mute the volume, nothing can be heard). Sometimes, it is heard frequently and other times it is seldom heard. Thanks in advance.

My roommate just got his new Asus G73 notebook (i7 Lynnfield, 6GB ram, Radeon Mobility 5870 1GB, and Windows 7 Home Premium 64). The problem he's having is with the function key. It's working for a few functions, such as screen brightness, screen on/off, wifi on/off, and suspend. These are the only working keys on the F1-F12 keys...volume control, mute, and the keyboard backlight remain unresponsive.

It's strange though, the FN key works for certain other keys on the keyboard, such as the page up/down keys located on the '9' and '6' of the numpad, but the calculator function (located on the numpad 'enter' key) does not work, nor do the media controls (pause, next/back, stop) work, which are located on the arrow keys.

It appears that pressing FN does something, however, as if I hold FN and press F11 in a browser, it will not go into fullscreen mode as it normally should - just nothing happens (F11 should 'mute' the speakers when functioning properly).

The keyboard drivers are the latest offered from the Asus website, and Windows is entirely up to date.

Anyone have any ideas here?

This laptop can't see any wireless networks. (where it has been able to connect before)

the wireless switch is enabled, and when I try to turn the switch on and off, the icon doesn't specify whether or not its actually on or off. My router is broadcasting the signal because three of my other wireless devices (ipod touch, acer 10'' laptop, iPad ) can connect to the wireless network. I ran a system recovery to try and reset any configurations that could be causing problems, and even after the system recovery the problem persists.

Any extra advice would be appreciated.

Sorry if I forgot to mention anything and I'll answer with another post

Hi, apologies if this has been posted already or is in wrong thread.

I bought this in December 2016 but have hardly used it much. Today I opened it up, screen came on, tried to delete a browser tab, screen went blank (but lights were on). After a while of blank screen I pressed in power on/off button until it shut down, left it for a few minutes, tried to restart, nothing happens.

I've tried holding in power button for 60 seconds, it's not coming on. Tried several times, no luck. Tried leaving plug on to charge battery for a bit, still no luck.

It's got a built in battery so I can't get to that unless I take open the back panel, which I assume will invalidate the warranty.

Any ideas what might have happened and what I could do? It's Windows 10.

Thanks in advance!

I have a two-year-old ASUS notebook that has been having starting problems. 90% of the time when starting from shutdown, sleep, or hibernation (I've tried them all) the computer will shut down and restart immediately after entering my password. This will happen twice and then Win 10 will go to the error screen where you can choose troubleshooting or restart PC. If I restart PC, the system starts normally.

The Event Viewer just gives me the 'Event ID 41 kernel-power' error. Not a lot of help.

The problem has existed, to some extent, since the PC was new and running Win 8.1

The PC has since been upgraded to Win 10 and to have two hard drives, a Samsung 850 EVO SSD boot, and the the original 1 TB HDD converted to a data drive. If anything, the problem has gotten progressively worse over time.

The BIOS and all drivers, as far as I can tell, are the most current versions.

Numerous scans and utilities have indicated no malware or other problems.

I'm hoping someone can shed some light on this frustrating problem.

Review of Asus S96J Notebook, First review, Go easy on me.

Review Of Asus s96J.

I ordered this Laptop from 1toppc.com, after careful planning of my needs; They were

Small(er) size
Decent performance

The s96j seemed to fit the bill. I got mine equipped with

2.13Ghz Intel Core Duo
2GB DDR2 667Mhz (Corsair)
X1600 256Mb Mobility
80 GB 5200 RPM SATA Drive
DVD +/- RW
Intel Pro Wireless

_________________Pros of the Notebook_______________________________

-Price- I was really looking for value here. Finding that middle range where price meets performance was something that took me along to accomplish. For around 1600 USD this was a lot of notebook with not a lot of excess spending.

-Usability- I wanted a notebook that delivered both performance and ease of use. I needed good enough battery life, without settling for sub par gaming. Again, this was a very hard niche to find.

-Quality- This notebook is rock solid. The keyboard has very little give (just the way I like it) It doesn?t run too hot. The screen has very good color and response time. I have used CRT?s all my life, and this LCD blew them out of the water.

-Future Ready- With a Core Duo (Socket 479) this notebook is ready for multithreaded applications. Also, while it is not confirmed, the notebook is rumored to be Core 2 Duo ready (memrom)

__________Cons of the Notebook_____________________________________

-Battery Life- While it is not too bad, I do not get the 2 ho... Read more

Upon powering on my notebook either things will happen:

1. Will lead me to a complete black screen where I can only move my cursor around then will blue screen and restart.

2. Scan and repair drive (Gets stuck then BSOD)

3. Show me options of refreshing / resetting etc but after completing a reresh or reset it'll BSOD

I've surfed through the forums and have been looking at some solutions but none of them have seemed to help.

Could you guys please give me a rough idea on what you guys recommend for me to do?

I've tried chkdsk and that has been stuck on for hours and hours. sfc /scannow does not allow me for some reason as well.

A:BSOD Upon Powering On ASUS Notebook

Are you able to get into Windows at all? If so, Please provide this information so we can provide a complete analysis (from the Pinned Topic at the top of the forum): Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions Please use Option 1 as it provides Event Viewer logs.

If not, then I'd try a reset with the recovery disks. If you don't have them, you can order them from Asus. Here's a link on info about doing that in the US: Order Recovery Discs (USA)

If that still doesn't work, then start with these free, bootable diagnostics: Initial Hardware Diagnostics
If unable to boot to the discs, please post back for further instructions.

A:Asus laptop/notebook problems

Well, you're in a difficult situation. If the Password Hint doesn't ring any bells for you, then according to forum rules:
No subject matter will be allowed whose purpose is to defeat existing copyright or security measures. If a user persists and/or the activity is obviously illegal the staff reserves the right to remove such content and/or ban the user. This would also mean encouraging the use or continued use of pirated software is not permitted, and subject to the same consequences.
Perhaps your gran-daughter will hopefully recall the password later.

Hey guys. I have an ASUS notebook, and I wanna get rid of some bloatware.

I noticed in task manager there are a bunch of weird processes such as WDC.exe, KBFiltr.exe, Hcontrl.exe, and ATKOSD.exe and such which have no description, but do not allow me to end the process or access their file location.

They are all within the directory of C:\Program Files (x86)\ASUS\ATK Package\ATK Hotkey

I googled some, and apparently they have to do with hotkeys. But I just plain don't trust these applications, even though SAS, Avast, and MBAM all say they're safe.

If they're not necessary, I probably don't use them anyways because I've never used hotkeys before (Unless this has to do with the FN keys for stuff like volume, etc...???)

Before I uninstall ATK Package (Which should in theory get rid of these processes), I just wanted to hear your take the situation before I touch it.

So is Atk Package safe to uninstall? Would I lose any features?

A:Uninstalling ATK Package (ASUS notebook)

It is safe to uninstall ATK however it is likely that the FN key functions will stop working.

any suggestions? windows 7 doesn't even see the modem, and when I install the modem software from Asus's site, it doesn't do anything, it seems to get throught the installation but then just dissapears, never says "complete" or anything. still nothing under "modems" in device manager. the modem is made by LSI.

thanks so much in advance.

A:Asus M70vn notebook, can't install modem

Try doing this - you need to install the driver in compatibility mode with the OS its written for eg for vista drivers install in compatibity mode with vista also make sure they are matched for either 64bit OS or 32 bit OS - to do this :
To install a driver OR program in compatibility mode - right click the setup.exe file - click properties - click compatibility - check run in compatibility with vista/xp etc - check run as administrator - leave the rest blank. Start setup.exe and install.

Also make sure your your using whql drivers(CERTIFIED) for 64bit W7 as MICROSOFT has driver enforcement, and wont install the drivers unless they are signed (certified).
