Hey all, just wanna ask if the windows 10 update will work with all my hardware on update day. Not sure if I will require any driver update as Asus' support from the G56JR hasn't had any updates since mid 2014.

Will the essentials like trackpad, keyboard, wireless and sound work?

word around is that windoes 8.1 drivers will work with windows 10 (at least the beta works fine like that)

Ah that is a nice reassurance. I'm not sure if Asus will even update the drivers for WIndows 10 because when I checked their support page, the latest drivers is from mid 2014 and some even from 2013.

Forget Asus drivers, just grab the stuff from manufacturer websites.. who knows, Win10 might auto-install it for you.

All you'd probably need is the ATK package for your F1-12 line and that's it.

that's true too... Windows 10 might just install its own drivers to match the hardware in the laptop. Win 8.1 update installed new drivers (not from ASUS) on my JW and it works fine. Microsoft FTW! they are really doing a good job now-a-days

Oooo ATK package only?

Windows even installs the trackpad drivers automatically?

Wow I didn't know that LOL

Yeah last I did a format it did. ;d

Even installs my Naga as a normal mouse. That's the main thing that made (I think since Vista) windows revolutionary.

Note it installs BASIC FUNCTIONS like move and click. Not the advanced gestures..

Oh almost forgot, on top of the ATK package, you'd need to download the specific RealTek driver that includes MaxxAudio and so on as well as your latest Graphics Driver from NVidia. Though Microsoft Updates believe it or not supplies NVidia drivers too. Just not the latest ones usually.

windows update also provides the realtek drivers (but not the maxxaudio), and yes, it does provide nvidia drivers.

I did say specific RealTek! >xc

you did, but I was clarifying that the drivers offered from Win10 are realtek but do not include the maxxaudio (not everyone uses it, or care to have it)

So theoretically, I could install the windows 8.1 drivers from Asus support and be all hunkydory?

THEORETICALLY..

We'll see when release comes around. ;d

According to the "media", we'll be waiting longer than July 29th. Unless you're a member of the microsoft insider club. So... if anyone reading this is a member, keep us posted with issues and solutions while we wait for our upgrade. Thanks!

Ha, my school has the Microsoft Student Program for students to join. They get to go to a lot of microsoft events as well. Pretty sure they're part of the insider club as well. If I see someone I know from there, I'll ask about WIndows 10 releases.
