Friends, i have G750Jx-CV069p, it came with windows 8 pro, i upgraded it to windows 8.1 pro from windows store, then updated the graphic card driver too, now there is no update left for windows and graphic card, when i shut down the laptop and start it, it only shows me Republic Of Gamers screen and then it goes black and blank and nothing happens for a long time, i have to keep pressing the power button to shut it down and start it again, and then it works fine, but this problem always happen whenever i shut down, i dont like power shutting down everytime, please help friends.

Make sure you update your WLAN and Bluetooth Drivers from here:

thanks Nehmia, for the reply, unfortunately my windows gets corrupted and I did the reset, now its 8 pro, if u r sure about these two drivers then only I will upgrade to 8.1. secondly I am also getting these 2 updates in windows update in optional update section, so should I update it from windows update or by the asus website?

Always update drivers from the ASUS website, don't let Windows update drivers.

Before you update to Windows 8.1, uninstall each and every driver and reboot after each uninstall

Now, download all the updated drivers from the G750JW Drivers download page I gave you above

then install all the drivers one by one restarting after each update
Follow this order:

1) Chipset Drivers
2) IRST
3) MEI
4) VGA
5) Audio
6) Card Reader
) Keyboard Device Filter
8) ATK Package
9) LAN
10) WLAN
11) Bluetooth
12) Wireless Radio Control
13) Touchpad

do all the windows updates, and right click on each driver update that appears in Windows updates and HIDE IT

whatever you do, do not install any driver other than the manufacturer drivers and that includes the VGA Drivers

Also note, when installing the VGA Drivers, choose Custom, then choose CLEAN INSTALL, then unselect the GeForce Experience components otherwise it will update the nVIDIA drivers to the latest ones and you will face a boot issue again. Some users who don't have the 3D screen don't experience problems with the nVIDIA Drivers but people like me who have the 3D Screen installing the latest nVIDIA Drivers will just brick my laptop

it is best to stick to manufacturer drivers always as they have been tested to work on your laptop 100%

Thanks but u gave me the link of the model G750JW whereas i have G750JX, dont u think there will be some difference? and if there is still some problem with booting issue, i will stick with windows 8 only :(
and when i checked the G750JX support page i found only few drivers for windows 8.1, what to do

you're right, the ASUS Driver team is slow and they have yet to update the G750JX

I've used all the G750JW drivers they are 100% compatible the laptops are identical

if you check the version numbers of the G750JW Windows 8 drivers VS the G750JX Widows 8 drivers, they are a clone of each other as well

I cant understand why you cannot install nvidia drivers... and we have to stick with old driver versions.... This is really disappointing...

yes updating the nvIDIA drivers to the ASUS ones + updating your Bluetooth and WLAN drivers will solve the issue

Maybe did you have 3D (120hz) version with ching liu panel? because this is a common problem for that model, no way to update Nvidia drivers that are newer than 327.xx release. Uninstall all previuous drivers and then install clean 327.xx

it's not about the version of the driver. they have to come from ASUS directly from the same laptop's driver download page so it will contain the necessary 3D Tweaks for it to work.

did you make sure you turn on the bluetooth first from the PC Settings > Network > Airplane mode?

Also, are u sure you are downloading the correct driver? some laptops have Broadcome Bluetooth, some have Atheros, and others have Intel
