Hello!

Ok so lets do this!

First off, when you purchase a manufacturer computer, they have the os and all the drivers installed already. The computer I pulled up with the info you gave me shows a laptop. So laptops are a pain to get rid of W8. You should have seen a few partitions on your drive such as a C:\ and a backup partition. Sometimes those are encrypted and unless you know everything there is about that stuff, it will be a pain. But lucky for you, I did this on a W8 laptop without a cd drive haha.

Ok so when you wipe the drive and install windows 7, you need to perform a FULL FORMAT every time. By doing so, it will almost ensure that you will have no corrupt data left from the previous install. Also, make sure when you delete the partitions, you delete All of them. Keep in mind that when you wipe windows 8 and install 7, you will have NO DRIVERS. Meaning, unless the disk installs what you need, you will have no ethernet drivers, no updated display drivers, no motherboard drivers, nothing.

The first thing you should do to prevent this is attempt to load into safe mode by pressing F8 before the windows logo shows up. Look through your devices folders and see if the drivers some-what installed. This could cause a blue screen if the computer detects a "Page fault in a non paged area" which usually means there is a corrupt/out of date driver trying to be accessed and the computer freaks out.

If you find nothing, check your partitions by entering your windows 7 disk (That's how I do it at least haha) and check if you deleted everything on the drive and it's just the windows partition. If so, try to install the driver in Safe Mode. If it blue screens again, prepare for war!

At that point in time, you want to find out everything about your laptop. What mobo it has, what ethernet/wifi it has, what dedicated card it has, audio drivers, etc. And download those. You could probably find those on the Asus support website. Download them all and put them on a flash drive.

After you have your updated drivers for your laptop, boot from the windows 7 disk and go through the installation process. When you get to the screen where it shows your partitions, delete them all. at that point, before you create a partition, hit "Format" or "Format Drive" and select "Full". Depending on how much your computer loves you, it could be quick or it could take a couple hours. After it is done formatting, select the "allocated space" and click on "New" it will then create a new partition. Then install windows 7. Wait for the process to finish.

After you installed windows, start installing your drivers in this order:
Motherboard -> Audio -> Ethernet/Wifi (unless it came with your motherboard drivers) -> Video Drivers -> any other driver. DO NOT install any programs without restarting first! If any of these ask for you to restart after it is finished, Restart. I don't recommend installing all the drivers at once by declining a restart request.

Let me know how this works out for you!

I already wiped win 8 partitions.. ill try the step with 1 driver at time and restart. Ill start straight with nvidia driver cuz this is the critical driver for me atm. I 'll let u know what happen plus from asus support there are only drivers for windows 8.1 x64 not windows 7 x64 drivers at all plus i dont have the original key of the windows 8 that were installed cuz its not written under the laptop at all so i cant install win 8.1 x64 (Official). cuz there is no key.

If the asus drivers say anything with a 7 in it, it will most likely work for 7. We did this on my buddy's gaming laptop when he reverted to 7 from 8 and they work fine. If they just say 8, they are not compatible.

It should look like Win8_7643359 Realtek HD Audio or something similar to the Win part. I was using that as an example haha.
