I won't be able to immediately answer questions, but I'll post all the information I can on my problem.

First, the fn+Up, Down, Left, and Right controls are only compatible with windows media player. Is that intentional?

Second, and on to the main issue: I got a 500GB SSD, a Samsung 840 series, and, due to a complete hatred of all things Windows 8, did away with my original hard drive (by which I mean it's in a box in my closet) and installed Windows 7 as my new primary drive, using the instructions ********** All is well! Everything's installed and the computer seems totally okay with everything!

Except, no.

NVidia is throwing a hissy fit about how it can't install drivers because it can't create the UpdatusUser profile and I have no idea why that would be the case. I realize this has nothing to do with Asus, but this is utterly maddening. None of the fixes on the nvidia forums were of any use. Judging by the topics in this forum, a lot of you have walked in the valley of the shadow of OS downgrades, so I'm hoping someone here might have experienced this problem and have a fix.

Also if there IS a way to use the fn keys with winamp that would be awesome.

Those won't install, period.

When I install the Asus driver, ONLY the driver is installed; no physX, no updater, nothing. I can't install the GeForce Experience either, even though I could on Windows 8.

I haven't had a problem either. Im running windows 7 perf. Maybe try to install the brand new beta drivers. i heard that they work without modification.

Well this is what nVidia support site says:


Removing the UpdatusUser Account

To remove the UpdatusUser account from desktop PCs, you must remove the NVIDIA Update software (and all its functionality) from your PC. To remove NVIDIA Update software, either:
Uninstall the NVIDIA Update software using Windows Programs and Features, or
Reinstall the NVIDIA driver but do not install (deselect) the NVIDIA Update software

I would uninstall drivers too and boot the laptop before trying to re-install.

how come man, what is your laptop model and which nVIDIA Graphics chipset does your laptop have?

if you did a clean install of Windows 7 this is really strange, never had a problem

nVIDIA Graphics Driver 9.18.13.1159 (http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/nb/DriversForWin8/VGA/VGA_nVidia_Win8_64_VER918131159.zip)

nVIDIA Graphics Driver 9.18.13.1183 (http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/nb/DriversForWin8/VGA/VGA_nVidia_Win8_64_VER918131183.zip)

If I knew "how come" I wouldn't be posting here. D:

It's a g750jx-db71 with a GTX 770M.

Make sure that your computer security software isn't blocking the automated creation of additional user profiles. That is most definitely a possibility. You might want to try disconnecting from the internet and then disabling your AV software before attempting to install the graphics drivers.

I managed to figure out how to do this at an earlier thread:

http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?34788-Configuring-the-multimedia-keys-on-arrow-keys

You have to compile some code, but I suppose that's better than an .EXE from a stranger?
