This forum Has helped Me get my g75vw nearly perfect after this I upgraded to windows 8 following hints and guides, However one thing I cant seem to get up is instant on, Question is, Is it worth it? and if it is how do I get it working with windows 8, the windows 8 version from asus when you click setup, gives me "your computer doesn't have the instant on support built in" and it cancels the process, I can load the windows 7 version, but doesn't seem to work at all. any Ideas?

I have the exact same problem as Vechaljian, also have installed the latest ATK package but still get the same message.

Did you installed the ATK package? Yes. I was having problems turning off my touch pad, found out that was needed, so installed the windows 8 version.

I have the same problem on my N56VM, upgraded from win 7 to 8 as well. I've been trying to find a solution since I upgraded to win 8.

I want instant on because of the longer sleep battery life, it was working fine on win 7.

The download site has this message on the install.

Instant On:
If you want to upgrade your OS from Win 7 to Win 8, to prevent software compatibility issue, please uninstall the older version driver before install the newer version driver

Have you tried that first?

Several times. when I do that I still get the Message "your computer doesn't have the instant on support built in". I also just bought a g55 with windows 8 pre loaded for my wife,and it has it on that, it works, so I tried the g55 version on my g75 aswell, no go.

For anyone still looking, i found a solution.

When you download the instantOn-package, don't run the setup. Go in the folder "Data". There will be (in my case) 3 .msi packages. The 409.msi was the installer which didn't complain and was in English!
Everything works perfect now!
