Hey guys,

I posted a few days ago about problems getting my once working Blu-ray player to work again.

The thing is I didn't know about any kind of DRM downloads??? Still don't know much, but know now thanks to a good guy here that they're not good!

Bottom line is I got some advice, but wanted to know...when I made my initial backups using Asus Backtracker on the OS, AND made baks of Apps and Drivers, can I use that to fix the issue?

I went into the files on the Apps and Drivers Folder on the USB, but there are tons of folders and files for everything and wouldn't know which to look for and try.

Anyone let me know if I can do it this way please?

Thank you all for your support! :)

SupaFaztG, you have what you need in the C:\eSupport directory, which you can access best through Asus Install - it should be installed on your laptop already, but if it got uninstalled, you can run it from:

C:\eSupport\eDriver\AsInsWiz

All the apps / drivers that came in the eSupport folder that can be installed will show up - you check the box and install - and uncheck the boxes of the stuff you want to keep uninstalled :)

Here is what I keep uninstalled:

42777

You can also download new versions of the drivers, not necessarily all the apps, from various Asus support areas:

Here is the list of places I look for updates for my G750JH; the best way to get a stable fully functioning G750/G751 is to update all the drivers / apps to the latest Windows 8.1 release.

The G750JW/JX/JH/JM/JS/JZ download areas haven't had new updates for a while, BIOS updates still happen in your model's support area, so check there from time to time.

The G750/G751/551/500/etc share the same basic hardware components; check support download areas for new hardware for newer drivers.

Asus maintains central support areas for hardware component features common to all products, those areas usually have the latest drivers after new hardware releases, sometimes there is a lag before the newer drivers show up there, so still to new product releases support downloads for the latest drivers.

Asus G751 Support / Download areas - Asus hasn't updated all the versions of these support areas, this link discusses the 3 locations were started independantly and not sync'd/updated through to the latest driver releases - check them all to be sure.

Asus doesn't modify the drivers, they release the identical driver packages as Nvidia releases.

Notebook Audio drivers - Realtek 7443 - current confirmed to work on G751/G750, some G750 users say 7335 works best for them, if you find a newer release version that works, please let us all know which version and G750/G751 model it works on.

I don't know what to say to all of your efforts and compassion :o here but...thank you once again....You always find a way to help, and believe me I know this takes time. I wish I could pay you to help and just fix it for me with remote access. I am constantly reminded of just how ignorant and dumb I truly am with this stuff. :confused: I'll keep trying. Thanks again. :)

SupaFaztG, sometimes once the damage is done like this it is best to do a restore back to a previously known good state. Roll back in system restore points until it starts working, or do an F9 (power on from power off) and first try a refresh, and if that doesn't work do a full reset.

If you don't already have a Asus Backtracker USB 3.0 16GB flash recovery drive made, now would be a good time to make it. You can still do the reset from F9, but make/keep the emergency backup of the recovery partition too.

Also, be sure and back up all your personal files, the Asus Backtracker only backs up the recovery partition and creates a bootable recovery drive.

If you use the F9 or recovery flash drive, pull off/out all your other drives than the boot drive so they don't get erased as part of the recovery.

That should work :)

And, now you know what not to do. I have been through all of this, and found it is best to just assume you will get painted into a corner occasionally and have to walk out and start from scratch :)

Good lick!
