I am new to this website and i am sorry if people have already asked about this before, I understand now that some old ASUS G750 have available Windows 7 Drivers, I just bought a ASUS G751 JT and to my surprise there is no Window 7 64 bit drivers on ASUS website, I am dependent on Windows 7 because some programs I have don't run on Windows 8, I was wondering if windows 8 64 bit drivers work on windows 7 64 bit because i read that they do and if not could i download Window 7 ASUS G750 64 bit drivers on my G751 ?

Thanks guys.

If you did a few minutes research on both this forum and the ASUS support website you would know that only Windows 8.1 is supported.

I know that PowerNotebooks.com will sell the G751 with Windows 7 Pro installed, so there MUST be drivers. There is a rep that monitors the G series notebooks on the Notebook Review (http://forum.notebookreview.com/asus-gaming-notebook-forum/) forum. His screen name is "Meaker" Good Luck! ;)

Hello All,

I can confirm that Windows 7 64 Bit works fine I have amassed all the correct drivers including that of the Ethernet Driver (REALTEK).

I am including a ul.to link here -in in addition to the bios settings below that must be set first in order to ensure that Windows 7 installs correctly on this machine.

Just to confirm that I have purchased this model:
http://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/G751JY-T7009H-ASUS-G751JY-T7009H_1665700.html

In my setup I got rid of the 256 M.2 HD and replaced it with a 500 GB SSD (SAMSUNG 840) - More space yes.. yes.. I know the original is faster but I needed more space. For the second hard drive I took out the 1TB stock drive and I put in a Samsung M9T 2TB 9.5mm SATA 2.5 inch Internal Hard Drive.


And before installing the OS you must act on these settings in the BIOS (F2) to boot into it.

When Machine boots up press F2 to go into BIOS.
Make sure to put the Windows 7 CD in so as to prep your machine.

1. Go to SECURITY->Security boot control-> DISABLE
2. Save changes and reboot
3. Go to BOOT->launch csm to enable -> launch PXE to enable
4. Save changes and reboot
5. Go to BOOT and choose BOOT from CD

Once you have installed Windows 7 please download my tested working drivers linked below via ul.to.

DISCLAIMER: I take no responsibility if your machine does not work or if you erase your OS or are unable to boot your machine due to my instructions or any malice on your part. - GOOD LUCK !

Hi all... you don't need any other drivers except for two however you must use Windows 7 Professional or better as to address the amount of memory used. The install is tricky, start the installation process as normal by deleting, cleaning and converting drive 0, install 7 then start over as the system will retain some of the Windows 8 details on the first install... you'll have to boot from a rescue disk if this happens because it will corrupt the drive. Imagine having a new laptop for the better part of a day then getting stuck at the bios screen.. Ha! The chipset and related drivers downloaded from Asus work fine except the two which are Windows 8 specific... make sure to install them in the correct sequence AFTER first installing the prerequisite Windows updates. You'll find that the Nvidia card is overclocked and it's drivers are therefore unstable at power down i.e. a normal power down will NOT work, currently working on a work around other than reducing the current card settings. To power down you'll need to disable the video card first each time.

I did not mention the two specific drivers or the exact Windows updates because if you don't already have an idea as to what they might be... you should probably ask for assistance other than trying to do this on your own. I was almost stuck with a brand new & dead laptop due to a corrupt drive but I have an old habit of making rescue disks first... this is not a good time for using the trial and error method and as I noted there will be a few unexpected complications.

I just tried a Windows 7 install and it ended with a big fail:

1) There is no Intel® Collaborative Processor Performance Control Driver for Windows 7 and the one which I got for Windows 8 will not install saying I do not meet the hardware requirements

2) On my previous G750JX and even on this G750JY, there is a serious bug in the keyboard on Windows 7 where if you start typing fast, it will skip some letter or type random letters. I tried installing the Keyboard Device Filter but it didn't change a thing.

Thus I think it is not worth the trouble unless you want to end up with a crippled laptop

"1) There is no Intel® Collaborative Processor Performance Control Driver for Windows 7 and the one which I got for Windows 8 will not install saying I do not meet the hardware requirements"

It's there... it is part of the original Asus driver set which is upgraded by yet another driver for Windows 8. The problem is the bios set up favors the stock configuration and the altered Gpu settings. I've scanned my system 7 ways from Sunday... and it's solid as a rock. When you have a large game collection you can't live without... you find a way. But I agree with you. Better to have bought a Windows 7 platform to start with.

Asus used Windows 7 compliant drivers and added to them for 8. But if you install them out of proper sequence... it's BSOD. And if you do it right you can just reverse the process to use Windows 8.1 and upgrade to 10. But I'm not after this it's a tablet... I just bought an Asus notebook because the price was right. I have other systems including a Commodore 64 and a Commodore Amiga. My C64 has better games than what they're pushing these days. I've been doing this a long time... Windows 7 works.

For me on a clean install of Windows 8.1 I was able to install Intel® Collaborative Processor Performance Control Driver

Before installing it, I would gets 10s of errors in Event Viewer about it but they're gone now after I installed it

Load the Windows 7 64bit drivers for the wireless and usb from model G750JS... that will get you onto net and have USB ability. Then go to asus site and download all of the other drivers for the G751JT selecting the only OS that drivers are offered for- Windows 8.1. They work fine (including nvidia) on windows 7 pro as they are on the same baseline. So- recap... Windows 7 drivers for the Wireless Adapter and USB downloaded from the G750JS, the rest are the normal 8.1 drivers for the JT.
Voila!

I have just put in a 500gb ssd into a g751jt installed windows 7 no problem.

After BIOS check I get a blinking cursor for about 4 seconds and then it takes a few seconds to start to boot, when it finally starts to boot windows it is quick but the hang from the start doesn't seem correct, am I missing something?

try what dieselthirteen said you will lose CPPC from intel and probably have issues with the brightness that was not a problem with me since it solved my usb soundcard problems and same games problems used the lan,usb, and audio drivers from dieselthirteen
