Hi man…great work…really amazing!!! I have already installed ATK drivers and correct Wlan drivers…but nothing still works properly… Any solutions??? Thank you in advance. Maybe one of those solves your issue. Mirco, as a last resort, you could try calling ASUS support. Write back their answer helpful or not in case other users face your same issue.
Somebody else has a problem since win10 is updating with the battery? Thanks in advance. I almost returned back my brand new Zenbook… I registered my product in asus site, and they show out of date drivers.
You saved my mental sanity, Thank you!! I really appreciate your work Ivan, so much helpful. Thanks man! Tried to fix my bluetooth Aukey headset with the newer drivers on win10 notebook but still cant recognize them. Andrea, you could try the Intel Driver Update Utility. Thank you for reply.

USB Charger Plus 2. If the latest version did not work for you, you could try that driver. I wonder if you have the latest bios for Asus N56VZ for windows I upgraded from Windows 7 SP1 to Windows 10 and most things work. Also, there has been some issues where a specific program hangs.
I suspect bios but could not find any update for N56VZ at the Asus Support page and I did not wish to flash a windows 8. Download and install the Intel Graphics Driver V My problem is I must remove old software to install new smart gestures. I only see Synaptics software for the touchpad. Is that what I must remove? If I remove Synaptics app and find smart gestures does not work, how do I find a copy of the Synaptics to go back to.
My problem is I lost my scroll function when I went from Win 7 to Win Al, yes, you must remove the old Synaptics driver. If you then want to install it again, here you can download Synaptics drivers. Thanks for the advice Ivan. When I tried to uninstall Synaptics drivers from win 10, I received an error message that one of the files could not be found and therefor did not perform the uninstall. I know the drivers can be uninstalled manually but it is beyond my technical knowledge.
Is there a place where step by step directions can be found? Here you can find some answers on how to remove it: Thanks a lot man. Even with driver booster app. But after I saw your explanation here, glory! Hi there, After upgrade to Windows 10, my laptop when return from sleep mode display turned on in 10 seconds, in windows 8. I have latest drivers.
Any solution please? If I disable nvidia graphics card return time is ok. Sound is on in 2 second in win 8 and Install the Instant On utility listed on the Other drivers section. The latest download link is for Windows 8, but it works fine on Windows Does it really work? Or just not break? I see no difference when on toggling it on or off and wake up from sleep takes a lot longer than on win8.
And have turn on display delay about 10 seconds when it returns from sleep. I have latest drivers installed. Anyone have this issues. How fix it? I have a question. Frustrating one. I have Win10 and m GPU. More info here. Eddy, try this: Reboot notebook. Reinstall chipset drivers. Turn on GPU. Install drivers from C: However I had this trouble only when GPU driver installed before chipset or after update.
Your site is excellent! Thank you Ivan! Thank you, it would be possible also to include drivers for Intel graphics cards? Very thankful. Thanks for your efforts with this site! Regarding this Intel Utility: The driver however is one from windows 8. Asus does not provide a graphics driver update for my laptop and their support staff tell me I should just go back to Windows 8!
Any thoughts or tips on solving this? I would like to force the install of the latest generic driver just to see if it improves the situation. Download the latest driver, uninstall the current driver and install the new downloaded driver.
Hope that fixs your problem. Happy hollidays man! Do you have any other suggestions? Stef, as I mention in the post, drivers included in the list are for Notebooks or Laptops. Try to use the Windows 8. Thanks for your quick response. I installed the Windows 8. Thanks again and Merry Christmas to you!
Great site Ivan all I need is for you to do the same for my Samsung series 4 laptop as Samsung have washed their hands of any windows 10 upgrades and the have stopped making laptops heh.
Ivan, thanks a lot for the ATK package v. The touch screen freezes and it stops to work. I uninstalled the v. Now I install the v. I hope that issue is fixed. You have links above for Windows 8. John, I just found all the latest Card Reader drivers and updated the post. Check it since there is a newer Realtek driver. Happy New Year! I used to control the performance speed with this. I have tried uninstalling Windows driver and updating in device manager but no luck.
Any help would be much appreciated. Best Regards, Mick. Thanks for your help in creating this website with all the drivers! I have the following driver versions: Bluetooth Driver — Intel When I downloaded the specific drivers for Bluetooth and Wireless LAN that you have listed, and double clicked the setup.
Asif, try the Intel Driver Update Utility included in the post. It depends on which wireless module you have installed, for ex. I have an Intel ac, almost new, but installing latest bluetooth drivers they dont work and icon disappear. The list continues to grow. Happy new year! Any idea why when I close the lid and reopen, it restarts Not hibernate or sleep?
Mark, that seems a Windows issue, check the settings again. Also, try installing Instant On use the link for Windows 8. InstantOn did not solve it. Its strange cause every time I open the lid after manually restarting, hibernating, closing the lid with any advanced power setting…anything I get the ASUS boot splash screen and then it will cut to the Windows10 lockscreen.
Why does it show the ASUS screen? Do you think the drivers changed a Windows Setting? Any idea what driver may have caused this so I can start rolling them back on-by-one? Thanks for all the help Ivan, the site has made it super simple to go to W10 save for this one frustrating hangup. Hey Mark, I am having the same issue as well when I close the lid. Tried reinstalling Windows even. Still the issue persists. Anyone please help. This issue is making me go insane. Ivan, Thanks a lot for the drivers: Everything works, except the Splendid video technology.
Could not find ICM file, installer will be cancelled. Please help. The sleep issue is gone. Now Hibernate and Sleep are working fine. But the black screen upon restarting still exists looks like a windows 10 and driver issue I guess. Hope this will solve your issue as well. Mark, I was having that issue too..
Sleep feature work like it must do.. Even after upgrading again my BIOS to the sleep feature just working well.. I hope this can fix your problem too. I just updated my Windows this morning. This is really frustrating because I do game and having the touchpad on really messes with me. I am trying the update which was released today to see if this helps any. Does anyone know if I must do this after every update?
Will these drivers work with any Asus laptop? It would also take long to boot into. I chatted with ASUS on line and they said it sounded like a hardware issue, but it was working fine in Windows 7. They repeated that they felt 10 was not supported as they would have updated the drivers. I had checked the memory with windows memory diagnostics before the clean install and it was clean and the Sea Tools program said my drive was in good health and chkdsk did not find any issues.
I have returned to Windows 7 via the recovery and two days in, not one lock up. I wonder if an update to Win 10 NOW will keep all the needed drivers. I have not tried doing the PC and afraid to after what I went through with the notebook. Mark, I looked at the support page for K72JK and many of the drivers are listed in the post. I had to go back to Win 7 on an old notebook since one driver was causing Windows 10 to freeze. Updated to latest drivers, changed to SSD and laptop work great… but it freeze constantly also it happened with the HDD.

I know that is not due to drivers. It is some service activated randomly mostly when a mouse is connected via USB.
Try to deactivate all non windows drivers and restart. It last almost one month without issues but sometimes happens again. Then start in troubleshoot mode and mswindows, deactivate services and reactivate again. Ivan and Tom, this may help others with this model. I installed all the drivers, the ATK package seems to connect allot of dots that I did not have the first time. However, it still locked up after the first reboot.
Doing some searching I noticed an unrelated post about how Bios can get corrupted over time. I started to wonder about the bios. It was the only thing not changed even with a clean drive and as Tom stated, he had a new SSD and it failed.
I put it on an USB stick and rebooted into the bios. It has been 5 days now. I am not shouting, I am cheering! I have done dozens of reboots, wake from sleep, wake from hibernation, cold starts. All going into Windows 10 as it should.
I have been checking error event logs and nothing critical. There are errors but not one hard drive error like it told me the first time I started the process. Hi and Big Thanks for the Asus Drivers. Can you just put a date when a certain driver is released? I just updated the post with all the Release Dates for each driver. They are shown as tooltips when you place the mouse pointer on a driver. Thank you, Ivan. The driver installed successfully, and I confirmed that it replaced the default drivers that were provided by Microsoft.
Do you know this problem? Chauveau, I found one mention of that error message and the solution was to install an older driver: You can use the same procedure.
Qualcomm Atheros drivers fixed a problem that started when I upgraded to Windows 8 and continued through Windows 8. I spent hours sorting out the freezing problem that was fixed after I disabled my Qualcomm Atheros Gigabit adaptor. I just installed the drivers from your link and the install re-enabled the Qualcomm Atheros Gigabit adaptor. My Notebook is working perfectly with Ethernet attached. You have done an amazing job pulling all this info together.
Many thx. Thank you so much! I first lost my asus smart gesture when I upgraded from windows 8 to windows 10 not really an upgrade your suggestion worked perfectly. Anyway, your drivers worked again, and so the touchpad feature is working once again. Is this option or something similar still available in Windows 10? With the ATK Package you can control that with your hot-keys. Thank you Ivan for your great work! Norti, I just added a Changelog. I hope recurring users find it useful.
Thanks for the feedback! Many thanks; this collection has been a fantastic time saver! If I may add a little info I stumbled upon by coincidence: However, the version number does not correspond to Smart Gesture since the application has less features than the latest one.
In addition, Mobile Control tab shows an older Server Version 1. Asus NJK. I was wondering if you knew any ways as to how to resolve this issue? Nelson, did you find a solution to this issue? I have the exact same issue on my Asus NXJ. Everything else is working fine. Hey Pieter! Any idea on what else I should try?
Stuart, update all drivers and also the BIOS.
There are lots of replies about your issue here. Alex, I re-added the links in the Graphics section. You need to know which Intel chipset you have before downloading. Asus Power4Gear Hybrid version 3. Also, there were fixes in the middle that you will loose. I looked for previous driver and it works fine but the latest one has problems.
I have a recommendation for the site: Seems like is a common problem in all the Asus, mine is N53sm. Thanks for the updates Ivan! Carlos, check my previous reply. That is, if you update ATK you must restart Windows. I reinstall ATK restarting the computer after, if I install charger plus v2.
Great job this web! Incredible job man! I was stuck on my TLA with the 2 fingers scrolling not working and I install the version for win 8. It worked great! You also gathered all the lastest asus drivers in one place. Can you help? Thank you so much for this website. I reinstalled the SmartGesture tool, and I really appreciate the extra files added to fix known problems with the build. I just had to thank you, it simply works now!
Use the Intel utility from the post. Since Windows 10 upgrade the sleeping mode do not work anymore. I just installed a new Windows 10 ISO from scratch but nothing better. Is Power4Gear Win10 compatible? Fred, check the previous comments. Do you know how to do? I installed Windows 10 from an ISO. Then, I installed the Asus drivers downloaded from this nice blog.
I solve the last unknown device detected by Windows device manager: Intel Smart Connect Technology. I also tried v2. Did I do something wrong? I have Intel HD Graphics , driver: Intel driver update utility says latest driver installed but Intel site says driver: I believe this is the same Intel setup as you have, so wondering which driver you have installed.
Thank you! Nevertheless, as I mention in the post, you could try to install the drivers from Intel site but WU might override them here is how to stop that. For your issue, there is a Microsoft fix here. I saw the Microsoft fix option 1-regedit on another site and was a little reluctant but feel a little better about it now.
Do you think by upgrading it may improve? You must update your ATK Package driver to v1. Thank you so much for the drivers! I really appreciate. What could be the cause of this? Again, check the previous comments. It still has the win7 drivers listed on the Asus support website and they are much older than those listed by you.
By the way, you are a genius for providing this site, and I agree with everyone else — why cannot ASUS simplify the support pages! Julian, you can use many drivers from the post according to the P52F support page.
Just check which vendor do you have before installing. Thank you very much for the this page. Please keep updating the page. I need a Bluetooth driver for my XL.
Great site, Thanks. Check the Device manager right-clic on Windows start menu icon. Then, go to the Bluetooth section and double clic the entry. There you can check the vendor. My problem is that nothing shows up in Device Manager.
So I figured I needed a driver of some sort, but how do I determine which one to download? I tried everything and nothing seems to fix the problem. I updated everything, tried clean install, etc… but the performance of the system is slow with lag and memory leaks! I use only drivers from Windows Update, with the exception of these 3: Other questions: It is needed for powermanagement to work. But when I do, the installed version shows Thanks for pointing that out, indeed the installer inside shows version Nevertheless, I found that the driver So, I updated the link back to the latest Windows says it is well fully charged with the full icon on right corner, but clicking on it I can read: It sounds like Windows is not able to use it again.
I tried to uninstall the battery APCI compliant drivers and reinstall but nothing changed. Can somebody help on this matter? Yeah, I have the same problem Win10, UX Read this FAQ. Ivan ho trovato il tuo sito molto chiaro utile, ed interessante, per scaricare download driver od aggiornamenti, nel casoi di installazione-reinstallazione.
Cordilamente, Dr. Prof Adamas Igma. I need to install a camera driver since mine somehow was deleted. The problem is I cannot obtain the PID number since the driver is already deleted. How do I check my chipset vendor? Can you tell me which Intel driver should I install please. The codename for your Intel processor is Haswell. You could use the Intel utility.
I have used the Skylake chipset update before I read your message and my problem has been solved. Could the Skylake drivers work properly in my computer?
Wow what a fantastic website! You sir are one awesome dude, cheers! Thank you very much! I love websites that are truly up to date I found everything I wanted here. I have problem with backlit keyboard, asus says it illuminate with base on ambient light sensor, but no luck to illuminate the keyboard so will the latest v 1. That is, the program runs but never finds updates. Thanks for the swift reply. After doing some research I found the same answers.
How disappointing. Asus still rules though! When I put my notebook to sleep while headphones are plugged, if I unplug headphones and wake it up I have no sound coming from the speakers.
I have to plug my headphones again and unplug them to get sound back from the speakers. Does anyone else have this problem?
Using latest Conexant driver. To prevent reinstallation of Conexant driver from Windows Update hide it using the supplied tool wushowhide. Newer versions out: The links on this site for these three go to an outdated Asus download mirror however… any way to redirect to the direct Intel link? I have an Asus VivoTab Note 8 tablet.
Do most of these drivers apply to that? Yes, most of the drivers will work for you. There are some tablet related drivers that you need to download from the support page for your model. Thank you for your amazing work. Then, after couple of seconds it responds and if I try again the same problem appears. You should only install the drivers for the hardware that you have.
Check the Device Manager to see what you need to install. Maybe the heat management now will allow me to keep the laptop closed when gaming. Nice site, really appreciate your efforts to help supply ASUS drivers for Windows 10, this was a big help.
I downloaded Dells driver package for this, which worked perfectly: I love this website. I am finally able to update my Zenbook without spending hours looking for the latest drivers. Where I can get a driver for USB3? After installing Win 10, it does not work!
