ASUS drivers for Windows 10

by IvanRF / January 6, 2016 1:14 PM PST

Many users are having issues with Windows 10 caused by outdated drivers.

Some examples are the touchpad, keyboard backlight, wireless, bluetooth cards, and more.

I compiled a list with all the latest official drivers for Windows 10, since many of these drivers are hard to find in the ASUS support site.

It seems I can't share it here since my thread from yesterday was removed. Feel free to search my list on Google with "latest asus drivers".

Cleaning up.

This fails for Site Promotion. I read an prior email from Lee Koo that will let it pass but the links were from Asus.

Your page at ivanrf.com/en/latest-asus-drivers-for-windows-10/#audio are NOT asus.com and NOT "official".

Users beware.

All links are Official

Please, look again, you are wrong. Links are from dlcdnet.asus.com which is just a subdomain of asus.com.

Support is needed to maintain a blog...

Compare the versions listed for your laptop in the ASUS support site with the versions I provide, and then we'll talk. I spend a lot of hours digging through the ASUS awful site to get this links and I maintain my site updated.
I give personal support to users, which equals to "time". If they want to support me back they can send me a beer. It's like a tip for a nice waiter...

I post this here to help CNET users with ASUS laptops issues. If this is so hard to understand, delete the thread... Anyone can find the link through Google, I don't know why you question this so much... I prefer to spend this time helping real users and not discussing.

A top post would be classed as site promotion or spam.
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / January 7, 2016 8:17 AM PST

If you want to dive in and monitor posts then reply, then that's helping. But site promotion and spam.

Then we see the usual driver updaters that cause no end or trouble as they include toolbars, malware and more. So the reaction on a top post of a site like that is a delete.

If we allowed top posts for "helpful" sites the spammers would use that as an example of where we allow spamming.

Take what you got and don't complain please.

Of course, I understand
by IvanRF / January 7, 2016 8:25 AM PST

Yes, I've seen lots of sites mentioning "drivers for.." which install software that it's supposed to install drivers, and most of them are malware.
I'm not sharing my own software, just links to Asus official drivers.

I found a non ASUS link there.

So that makes it not official. Don't call it official and maintain it is. It is or it isn't.

These forums get a lot of spam and one of the rules is no site promotion. On that alone your top post should go. A lot of rope was given here.

Which one?
by IvanRF / January 7, 2016 8:28 AM PST

All links to files available are from this domains: asus.com, intel.com and nvidia.com.
Please, let me know which is the link you are mentioning?
Is there any other way to talk here? like a chat?

So you have non-Asus links
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / January 7, 2016 10:45 AM PST
In reply to: Which one?

And I recall a realtek one as well. That's not official as in Asus sanctioned.

You've been given a lot of leeway as the link goes. I rarely see a top post with a site link stay since that's site promotion. See the forum policies. I suggest you take this pass as-is.

Thanks
by IvanRF / January 7, 2016 12:42 PM PST

Thanks for taking the time to analyze this thread.
Regarding Realtek, again, all links are from asus.com. I just double check in case someone included a comment with a file link, but that's not the case.
Other domains included (Intel & NVIDIA) are from official ASUS vendors.
Feel free to resume this large chain of replies in your "Cleaning up" reply. I don't want to waste anyone's time. Thanks!

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
