05-02-2015, 01:02 PM
Hello Fellows,

I just wanted to share these drivers that works for me while using Windows 10
The VIA audio software is buggy but all functions will be able to be controlled in Windows
Open Playback Device - Right click on Speakers - properties
There you go all settings VIA Audio Software got
I don't know a lot about these drivers just found them while searching around
All speakers plays together
Remember to enable 2.1 Channel under Enhancements and set the speakers to 5.1 surround under Configure in Playback devices
Hopes other will get it to work
- Stefan
PS. If you have any trouble try to ask me.. I might be able to help :P

The drivers is working well but still got some problems like the subwoofer isnt totally active and the speakers isn't loud at all but enought to make you able to hear them :)

Thank you for your tip. It worked well. And I also want to share the all-in-on Asus driver download tool, DriveTheLife. I don't know if you guys have tried it or not. Many of my friends used it and the experience was quite good. It helped check whether the drivers on your laptop were update to date, and if not it would download all for you. It's quite useful for greenhands. I've kept this tool on my laptop, Windows 10 64 bit.

I think you would be much better off logging on to Asus Support Downloads (http://support.asus.com/download/options.aspx?SLanguage=en&type=1)and checking in every now and then to see if you need to update and drivers?? No mistakes happen that way to cause issues.

will asus still support the older g75's when win 10 comes out????
meaning, will they have win 10 download drivers...if need be that is.

I doubt it, were relegated to the older G models Asus has not in the past kept up with drivers for older products

They do as little as possible after the warranty is out. My son's TF101 boot logo says "Persistent Perfection" after they sent out one android upgrade which caused more problems and never fixed it, he calls it "a lie, it should be Persistent Imperfection". He certainly will not be an Asus customer. The G75VW has the worst speakers and software I have ever seen in a laptop especially considering the price. Asus use to be the best hardware company around until they got popular and started being very profitable, lifetime warranties and great customer service just disappeared. They still make some decent products for the price but like my TA100A Windows all-in-on, it has a very low quality feel and it had to back to Asus for one service under warranty, even though it has intermittent WiFi issues.

As far as you real question, they will only support Windows 10 if there is a serious glitch affection a lot of units and the customers pressure them to make windows 10 work on them but don't expect much. This is only my opinion base on my years as an Asus consumer, 7 motherboards, 3 tablets, video cards, monitors, and probably some other stuff I can't remember.

Now on the upside, many of the drivers will work and Microsoft will get drivers from manufacturers of components on the motherboard and in the laptop. They will install fine without Asus direct involvement. Chipset stuff will come from Intel, video drivers from Nvidia, etc. I think you'll be OK when it gets time to install Windows 10. However, I think Windows 8.1 is the best OS I have ever used and not considering upgrading immediately. It has a "Start" menu that works great! Just right click on it!

Interestingly, though, audio doesn't seem to work as Windows 10 defaults to headphones, even if they aren't connected. If I manually select speaker output, I get audio.

After "installing" (I get a HD audio device not found error) Audio_VIA_Win8_VER60101400, I can select 5.1 surround when configuring speaker output. Even the subwoofer actually checks out just fine. Except... It isn't used during playback. I suspect it's because its running "pure" 5.1 mode now, and when listening to music, the .1 isn't activated as it hasn't got a legacy track to play.

Does anyone know how to activate this "emulation" as you could on good ol' surround sets when using non-5.1 media?

Hello everyone, First post here. I just wanted to shed some light on my situation with via audio and G75VW. Download the windows 7 audio driver package from asus support. Unzip to somewhere that is easy to find. I recommend a folder on your desktop. Remove any reminisce from the windows 8 via install from Add and Remove Programs. If you don't see it. Check your C:ProgramFiles and C:ProgramsFiles (x86) for via folders and delete them. Next go to device manager and Via high definition audio under sound video games and controllers, Right click it and uninstall the driver and check the box that says delete driver then reboot. Chances are it will install windows 10 default driver. Now that you have rebooted. Go back to device manager and find Via high definition audio in the same place and right click it and click update driver. What we are going to do here is force the windows 7 driver to install.

- Click update driver software/
- Browse my computer for drivers software/
- Let me pick from a list of drivers on my computer/
- Click the have disk box and locate the driver folder we unzipped before the reboot/
- Click browse and locate the unzipped W7 unzipped folder
- Click to /ViaHDaud/Present/Drivers/HDWIN764/ and then select the file viahdb
- This will bring up a list of drivers.. select the top one. This forces the win7 driver.
- Now turn off your windows updates and reboot.
- Once rebooted go to sound in control panel
- Right click speakers and select them as default device and default communications device
- Left click speakers then click configure and select 5.1 then click next
- Uncheck Rear Pair so that only center and subwoofer are checked then click next
- Uncheck surround speakers so only front left and right are checked then click next and finish.
- no lleft click speakers in sound and go to the enhancements tab
- you can now set the volume of your sub woofer, select 2.1 and then click more settings. You can also change eq by checking it and clicking and clicking more settings etc.

I just thought I would post this as it seems like an okay work around until they update are sku or release drivers for the same chipset on another computer :) fingers crossed and cheers.

Curious, running this exe (after running it through VirusTotal.com of course) it says "This app can't run on your PC. To find a version for your pc, check with the software publisher." I'm running WIndows 10 on G75VW.

Can anyone tell what VIA audio chipset I have on this model?

I can't get it to work no matter what i do :/

They don't have Windows 10 sound drivers yet.

Hi Rog friends! i have just updated my G75vw from windows 7 to Windows 10 ... and had the same problem, but found this web site and used the driver from there on the via one... and worked like a champ! http://www.driverscape.com/manufacturers/asus/laptops-desktops/g75vw/463

08-13-2015, 03:38 PM
Another note... the Subwoofer is listed as a headphone.... but if u enable the main playback device... system works like a champ... movies and others tested ok so far...

Don't worry i spoke with Asus today. Around 1-2 Weeks then they will release the full supported drivers for Windows 10 on their website :D

08-22-2015, 09:59 AM
So everyone!
After we have been waiting the drivers will release the Sound drivers in around 1-2 Weeks. I just spoke with them today! :D

It is a shame the way I have been treated as a customer and long term/time Asus product buyer. From tablets to laptops for the entire family because
ASUS wsa once a brand that stood behind its name. I sent this machine in 2 times and it came back with the same dam HD error issue I had when I sent it in. I was forced to buy a HD and install it, only because I was tired of looking at my $1500 sitting on my table at home. I formatted the drive and so far it has been great but then again this is only the first day. I was dedicated to ASUS at one point in time and I am now no longer impressed. No lifetime warranty on such an expensive machine and the customer service literally SUCKS......

I am trying so hard ot get my speakers to work but cant what else did you happen to do to get them to work correctly??

08-25-2015, 04:51 AM
I kept at it and I have it working but not the same as before, but ti is better than nothing at all which is what the low uppers were....

So everyone!

Are the new drivers going to be able to give us back the bass bottom and the amazing sound that the machine had before? Did they give you any specifics I just dont have the patients to call them anymore especially after having to fix my own machine.

08-26-2015, 03:55 PM
This is the first I have heard about Amazing sound from any of these G Series notebooks??? Hopefully Asus will get us a working Audio Driver? I don't hold out much hope myself and plan at this point to stay on 8.1 with my G75VW. I have 10 on one of my desktops and for my notebook I don't see anything that I am missing out on with 10

08-26-2015, 05:32 PM
Audio now works ok, including the subwoofer. Only two complaints. The sub is really quiet, hopefully the next driver will fix that. Also, headphones have to be manually switched.

I have 10 on one of my desktops and for my notebook I don't see anything that I am missing out on with 10
Win10 did give me a slight performance boost from Win8.1 (a few fps in msikombustor). Also upgraded another laptop from win7...that had a huge performace increase. Didn't write down the exact numbers, but it was a substantial increase, a lot more than I expected.

11-07-2015, 05:44 AM
I'm still having problems with the sound not working correctly.. its been a long time and still no support. or drivers for it.. and now win 10 drivers...

11-07-2015, 08:21 PM
Asus does not support window 10 on these older models, if you upgrade your on your own. the solution user have come up with are posted if you figure out something please post it.

11-07-2015, 08:27 PM
Lifetime warranty are you kidding no notebook manufacture supplies lifetime warranty. You could have purchased 3 year warranty at least here in the states or through a insurance vendor like Square Trade. Mine came with 2 year warranty.
I have to agree customer service sucks badly. Thank goodness we have these forums most other brands don't have great support forums like this.
