Hello ASUS Laptop Experts!


I have a New ASUS LAPTOP X550LN and I just replaced the OS from Win8.1 to Windows 7. (I don't like windows 8.1 yet)

Problem is, most of the device drivers are not working(i.e. Ethernet, 3d video, network controllers etc...)

I need to know where can i download the drivers that will be compatible with WINDOWS 7.

ASUS site only allows to download drivers for win8 only.

I Have tried running those drivers for win8 but didn;t work on win7 OS.


Appreciate if you can help me solve this problem. Thanks..

You have put yourself in a no-win situation because only ASUS can supply the correct drivers for ASUS laptops, and if they don't support Windows 7 on your model you have only one option -- go back to Windows 8.1.

Like most laptops and factory-built PCs, the hardware is custom made for the OEM, and that hardware therefore requires custom-made drivers which are only supplied direct to the PC or laptop manufacturer.

You must always check the laptop or PC maker's website before upgrading or downgrading the pre-installed OS.

To be free of such restrictions you shouldn't buy a laptop or factory built PC. You should build your own PC using a retail motherboard or have one built for you locally (your local independent PC shop will appreciate your support).

Bullshit.OEM .. bla bla ,custom made drivers ... bull shit
all the drivers for the laptop you can find in intel, realtek, and nvidia websites. I am currently with this laptop using win 7 and I have downloaded all the drivers from manufacter websites.
They are just forcing us to use the crapy win 8
