These are the latest compatible drivers for the G75VW. There are newwer chipset drivers and newer IRST drivers butthey are for the newer chipsets and won't work on the G75VW as the installer will simply install the older driver anyway.

Also, for VIA drivers there is the VIA Audio Driver 6.0.10.1600 but it is buggy somehow when you connect the laptop via the HD cable it won't give sound to your TV so the latest one by ASUS for out laptop VIA Audio Driver 6.0.10.1400 is the best.

with regards to nVIDIA drivers, it is your choice, but I have had better results and performance with the latest ones from ASUS as oppsed to the latest ones from nVIDIA, so pick what you like.

I benchmarked with an installation on UEFI and an installation on the normal MBR disk and the results are exactly the same!

UEFI offers nothing more than supporting more than 2 GB partitions. not needed for me.

Also note, that if you install Windows on a GPT partition (UEFI) it is impossible to create disk image backups with Acronis True Image or the like, actually , with the add on pack for Acronis, you can backup the partition fine, but try restoing it at one point when you need to, it will fail.

Thus, I reformatted and installed Windows on a regular MBR partition.

UEFI can no longer be enabled or disabled in the BIOS after the latest update what you have to do is

- Insert the Windows 7 DVD and reboot, but go straight into BIOS
- You will notice in the Boot options, the first option would be UEFI: MAT$HITA
- Disable that option
- Put the first boot device as your BD-ROM/DVD-Drive but without the preceeding UEFI
- Put the 2nd boot device as the SSD or HDD
- Save changes and exit
- Now enter the Windows 7 Setup by pressing any key when prompted
- At the disk partition screen, delete all your main HDD/SSD partitions
- Recreate them according to your liking, I do C: = 50 GB and 😧 = the rest
- Proceed to install Windows on C:
