Yes if you find a working driver it only adds the extra power to the front right USB 3.0 port

Also if the power boost is installed you should have a Notification in that bar where you can turn it on or off? I can't comment on custom drivers that is beyond my expertise's.

Clintlgm , I have a working USB boost asus file for my G751 , W8.1 version , don't see why it should not work on his G75VW as u well know asus does not update software or drivers for older laptops , pc and motherboards but newer drivers sometime work from other driver pages , that's what I do or at least try.. lol
I love LA ,haha

so you mean there won't be any drivers update for g75vw?

toronto699, Yes I agree, I've been seeing some Mod files flying around and I don't recommend them to anyone, since most of the people that come in here are not very techy to deal with things that don't work as expected.
RosGar No I don't believe Asus will post any Win 10 drivers for the G75, or 55 were operating obsolete equipment as far as Asus is concerned.

If you read through these threads you'll find the work around drivers to make your G75 more or less work on win 10

i just discovered, that some of crypto usb keys, which i need for work purposes, do not work correctly with any of win10 usb drivers i tried. so i just had to restore my notebook to preinstalled win8. this is kinda sad, 'couze i liked win10, btw. nice OS. anyway this is the end of this story i guess..
