What drivers for fresh 7 install

Arv3n

So I just traded my Macbook Air for an Asus G75VW. I freshly installed Windows 7 (peace of mind) and need a little bit of help with which drivers to use. I am booting in UEFI mode with a standard hd.

I've installed chipset, IRST, video, sound, touchpad, and lan. The only other driver missing is the wireless one. I've installed the Wimax, Atheros, and wifi wireless driver from the support page and none of them make the yellow exclamation mark go away. What is the correct driver to use? Do I need the card reader driver (how do I check if I have this)? Do I need to install any bluetooth drivers (if so, which one)? Do I need any of the utilities?


Thanks for any and all help.

Not sure where you are getting your drivers but check out Asus Support Downloads, on utility's ATK package for sure USB 3.0 is Intel and if Asus doesn't have the latest one you can get it from Intel website.
