Windows 10 FCU is finally out today!
However, after the update, one of the driver became "unstable"
It's the conexant smartaudio HD driver. It's name reverts back to "High Definition Audio" and produces no sound. In the Playback devices window, it said "No audio devices are installed"
So, I tried to reinstall the driver, it's name keeps staying as "High Definition Audio" and now, it said "This device is not configured correctly".
I tried restarting windows a couple time, the only thing working is that I revert back to generic HD audio driver of windows( the real High definition audio driver", using that driver, I got the sound back.
I tried to clean install Windows 10 FCU, let windows update everything itself. Windows did update Conexant driver using Windows Update, it works, but with no "smartaudio" application. I tried installing driver from Asus support site. And the problem came back.
So i guess the driver is kinda out of date.
Please kindly update the driver. every driver on support site is kinda old now.
[Everything is fine during Technical preview and Pre-release]

Yup! FCU is a load of garbage for the GL Notebooks!
Updated to it, and it somehow F*kd something so I could not load my OS from my M.2. I installed a SATA HDD w/ a fresh version of FCU on it and drivers were shot for the NVMe controller and keyboard somehow. After two days of pulling my hair out, searching forums, screwing with BIOS, doing fresh installs of windows FCU I could not for the life of me (or tech guys from a community I'm in) figure out what was going on.
As a last resort, I don't know why I did it, but I did... I downgraded the BIOS from 305 to 302 (GL502VMK) and what do you know, the laptop booted right up from my M.2 drive. I suggest staying away from the update, it's caused me nothing but trouble....
