It's been quite some time since Windows 10 has been released. Why are there no driver updates? Sure some Windows 8.1 drivers works with Windows 10 but at least they should update it on their driver site here (https://www.asus.com/Notebooks/ASUS_ROG_G750JX/HelpDesk_Download/). My old Lenovo desktop with an nVidia GT635 GPU has already gotten Windows 10 drivers since weeks ago. So what's up with us having slow driver updates? Even the newer laptops haven't gotten their Windows 10 drivers. Am I just using the wrong website? Seriously, if I'm missing something here, please tell me. I've been waiting for a proper driver update so I can reinstall Windows.

Actually there are quite a few WIn10 drivers/software updates available through the Asus support site for out laptops. Not knowing which particular laptop version you have, but in my case w/ a G750JZ...

I go to the support site for my particular version, select Win8.1 as the OS version, then expand each entry (ATK, Audio, VGA, etc.). I highlight each entry, for example "ASUS Splendid Video Enhancement Technology", then do a search for it...

... then select Windows 10 64bit from the dropdown. The newest Splendid version is 3.11.0001. You can do the same for all the listed software and drivers listed on the Win8.1 driver support page. Not all have been updated to Win10 yet, but those that haven't may still work correctly in Win8.1.

did you disable the driver update feature? during the first 2 weeks of release, there were issues with this option (maybe they dissabled it?) - I manually took it off... so many issues
