View Full Version : Clean install Windows 7, Drivers downloads don't work

10-25-2011, 04:35 AM
So basically, my G73JH-a1 was running slow and I decided to do a clean install of Windows 7. The version I had before was the factory Home Premium. The Clean install of windows is Ultimate N.
As windows was updating, I popped in my driver/utilities disk that came bundled with my computer into my G73. I ran the setup file then a message popped up saying:
"Suitable OS for this driver disk:
32, 64 bit

How do I get my drivers installed now?
The main driver I want to work are the Subwoofer drivers. I've tried installing the downloads from the Asus site and from Chastity's thread(http://www.asusrog.com/forums/showthread.php?1150-G73-Series-Driver-and-Application-Reference) , but both say that no SRS device was found.

I don't know where to start...

Thanks in advance.

That disc is doing you a favor. Everything on it is old.

Is THIS (ftp://ftp.asus.com.tw/pub/ASUS/nb/Drivers/Audio/Audio_Realtek_SRS_Win7_64_Z6016282.zip) what you need?

I don't know why your driver disc won't install, that's weird. But if you REALLY need something from it, like Intel Turbo Boost Driver/Monitor, you can browse the disc in Explorer file manager and copy the installer from it.

Virtually all of the needed drivers.....usually newer versions....are available online from Asus or the device manufacturers. Do the ones for basic functions first- the Intel chipset, Intel IRST, Nvidia driver, ATK package, your WLAN card, etc. Then just gradually go through and add only the other stuff you really want and need.

I agree with JR...that disc is doing you a favor. A clean install is rendered kind of moot when people just stick in that disc and re-install all the old drivers and bloatware on it. You're better off going taking it slower and only installing what you want.

Use a Windows 7 Home Premium ISO instead of the Ultimate N one.
