Reinstall the Chipset (Core) Drivers

1. Put the installer infinst_autol.exe into a folder
2. Using Windows Explorer click on empty space in that folder
3. Shift +Right-click that empty space then select Open command window from the menu
4. In the Command Window type infinst_autol -overall and press enter
5. Allow the installer to do it's thing.
6. Restart Windows



The Safer Method to Flash a System BIOS

1. Format a USB drive to FAT32 format.
2. Download the new BIOS and unzip it to the USB drive.
3. Remove USB drive after you're certain the file transfer is complete.
4. Restart your notebook and while the ASUS logo is on the screen press F2 or del a few times to enter the BIOS setup.
5. Find the Easy Flash Utility and insert the USB drive. Tell Easy flash where your BIOS file is then follow directions explicitely!!!
6. When your notebook restarts, enter the BIOS Setup utility again and select "Load Optimized Defaults" (I think it's f9 )
7. Save and Exit, then continue into Windows.

Hi i ordered an SSD for my g74sx-nh71 and i want to install win 7 on it. I saw the iso link in the thread and was wondering if and how i could install it from a flash drive Thanks for your help!

Also if there were any other free methods that would be pretty easy, please tell.

I know it's an old release which is my current, i had MPEG2 / DVD black screen problem after installing 285.62. As 296.10 is out, anyone to confirm whether it's been fixed just by updating GPU drivers?

Thanks, JR!

I think for many users, your list (combined with your very useful signature! :D) makes it a lot easier to find the new drivers for their machines. While the driver thread is an important resource when all the links are working, I don't think it's organized very well at all. For new owners, especially, there's really nothing to tell them what they actually need out of the somewhat overwhelming assortment of versions listed there.
