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

Hello, have you try running The Intel® Driver Update Utility, looking through http://support.asus.com/Download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=X5... I see that most drivers are from intel. This should provide you with some drivers, For the others I would go to the manufacture's website (ie. realtek). Hope this helps. fyi. open up cmd (command prompt) and type wmic csproduct this command should list serial, vendor, description information you might need to get support.

Intel's site: http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/detect

just search on google your laptops model number, open the manufacturers link, go to support, select your OS, download the drivers.

OK, i install windows 7 like speculator888, find all driver for my laptop (actually, most driver for window 8.1 in ASUS support website is working with window 7), setup both drivers Intel HD Graphics + Nvidia Geforce, and my laptop problem is Intel HD Graphics always enable, make Geforce driver report it's not working correctly. Playing game with Intel HD Graphic is nightmare for me. Try uninstall both and install again step by step 3times but problem can't solve :(  (Both driver download from Intel and nVidia)

So, i think Phillip Corcoran is right. Next day, maybe i try install win8 :( 

If u can solve it, help us, plz :)

Hi, I have the Asus X555MA laptop, there was no warning that upgrading from Win 8 to 8.1 would destroy the ability to restore from the recovery partition. No help from Asus or Microsoft. I gleaned the internet for Win 7 64 bit drivers for this model. I found some, but also downloaded the Win 8 64 bit drivers as well. First problem was some of the options were missing from the BIOS. I found that the BIOS ver was 213. Downloaded ver 516 and lo and behold, all the missing options appeared. Installed Win7 64 Bit Pro from expanded ISO image with no problems, it even accepted the product key I had purchased from ITRevive. When completed, there were a number of devices that had not installed. I managed to install some Win 7 drivers, the rest I took a chance on and installed the Win8 ones. Everything is installed correctly and touch wood, the system is running fine. Couldn't activate as it said invalid product key, so rang Microsoft and used the automatic activation details and was given the code to enter and all is fine and dandy. Hope this helps whoever see it.
