Are there recent driver updates for the ATK package, KB filter x64, Fresco logic USB 3 and Sentelic touchpad???

If so, can someone please list the links for each?

Thank you in advance!

ASUS support site have not provide, others can not guarantee after install and use.

as bad as most of these drivers are, especially for the sentelic touchpads on the g74sx, it is absolutely pathetic that asus hasn't bothered to upgrade them. it just shows the apathy asus has for its customers once they have spent their money.

With the exception of the ATK Package drivers, the device manufacturers develop the drivers for their devices. ASUS just tests them to confirm they work without issues on their laptops.

that may well be true, but asus contracts to put these pieces in their product. so they have a responsibility to have those companies make sure that these pieces of equipment work. therefore i stand by my statement.

If you don't mind trying unapproved drivers for your G74Sx, I can help you find a few, but before doing that, just wondering why you wanted to update those drivers and what problems you were seeing?

Saw your post "frequent crashing of my g74sx has recently started happening..." (http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?28269-frequent-crashing-of-my-g74sx-has-recently-started-happening...&highlight=AQUASTEVAE) and was curious if it was finally resolved or if the problem came back.

Since things should normally work pretty well (hopefully?) with the ASUS approved drivers for your notebook, wanted to check that it really makes sense to start trying unapproved drivers that may not always work that well.

as for my previous problem with the frequent crashing, i finally solved it. i was living in palau, a small island in the pacific. and the net there is slower than my 1995 dialup, and extremely expensive. so what was happening is my computer was never online long enough to update things. after weeks of trouble shooting, it turned out my ssd needed dot net 4.0 and to have it's firmware updated. after that everything was fine.
as for my current situation, the only real problem my computer has is the sentelic trackpad, which was a problem for most on here right from the very start. i use an external mouse most of the time, but it still pisses me off, on that occasion i need to use it, that it goes haywire. i would have thought by now that they would have fixed it. also, the usb 3.0 port sometimes works intermittently. so i just wanted to see after all of this time, if these things were finally taken care of.

also, once in a long while, i will have to reload my atk package because my function keys will stop working. but that isn't a biggie, as it's rare.

Glad to hear the previous problem was solved at least and I'm always forgotting to check the .NET framework software.

Well, these unapproved drivers actually aren't that recent and don't know if they will help, but you can check the ASUS download site here (http://support.asus.com/Download/Options.aspx?SLanguage=en&type=1) and choose to manually select your model (actually you will be selecting 'drivers' instead of your series) instead of searching by your model name to see something like the screenshot below.

You can find the unapproved Sentillic touchpad driver Version V9.1.7.7 which was posted 10/15/2011 as well as Version V9.0.4.4 which was posted 12/08/11, so the highest version does not always mean it is the latest posted driver on the unapproved site and we surmise it might just be a more recent fix based on an older driver version, but not really sure about this.

Also, if you didn't already know, there have been other posts about the G74Sx touchpad like this long one (http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?3426-G74SX-trackpad&highlight=g74sx+touchpad) which you might have seen, but I'm really not very familiar with this issue myself.
Sounds like dstrakele has the same G74Sx model and knows some things about if you want to discuss this issue as well as others more on the forums with other G74Sx owners.

Didn't see anymore updates for the Fresco USB 3.0 driver, but wondering if the issues could be related to something else like the USB charger software what we can also look into more etc.

I thought I'd seen a newer usb3 driver just a few weeks ago......... but just checked and it says "nope". Could have sworn...... anyway, you've tried this place right? http://www.usb3-drivers.com/download-fresco-usb3-driver-for-Windows7-64bit.html
