Hi,
several days ago I cleanly installed Windows 10. As you may have noticed Windows 10 installs drivers automatically. It has installed Intel Graphics Driver, same version as on Asus Support site: V10.18.15.4256.
Unfortunatelly this driver is buggy and from time to time it crashes showing error that: "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered". New version of drivers from Intel fixes this bug, this version is: 15.40.14.64.4352, from 22 Dec.
My question is: Does Windows Update install drivers directly from Intel or from Asus support site? When new driver comes out on Intel webiste, will it appear on Windows Update and update my computer or do I have to do it manually?

Hello there new ROG citizen,
The ROG population is known to be non-telepathic in their current life time.
It is highly advisable to tell other your ROG laptop model or any other tech details so they will have a slight chance to help other, based on that info.

As always, feel free to visit us at the ROG central forum for any future question.

Asus barely updates it own drivers... so don't think there for sec that you'll push anything through MS windows updates.
Windows update drivers from thier own servers - you can check it manually through Microsoft®Update Catalog (https://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/Thanks.aspx?id=140) ( note that it works only on IE )
nontheless, it is NOT MS who develops part of these drivers, but them might put changes in them.
Also, many MS provided drivers come WITHOUT the driver's config apps - thus it might be good idea to get the full package from the OEM manufacturer.

Hey,
thanks for help. I own G551JW.

So to sum up:

Microsoft provides drivers for laptop on Windows Update independent of Asus
It is accident that Nvidia and Intel drivers installed through Windows Update match version on Asus support site
We may expect that Microsoft will roll update through Windows Update for Intel Graphics drivers


Am I right with above statements?

Edit: Also, it is worth noticing, that we may disable installing drivers according to this manual: http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/stop-automatic-driver-updates-windows-10 . However this will block installing drivers like: NVidia, Intel HD Graphics, Realtek Audio, but will not block drivers like: Intel Chipset, Management Engine, Intel Wifi, Realtek Ethernet, Realtek Card Reader. Its complete nonsense to me.

The summery sounds about right...

Windows 10 "concept" was built with the idea that users don't need to know any technical details in computers whatsoever.
this is of course bad news.... cuz we want super tweaked laptop - inorder to get the best performance, the stable as it can be.
My advise - disable that fraking auto-update... and control you own drivers manually.
If you need some Plug&Play - switch it back on - then off after you've finished getting your drivers.

that hole auto-update procedure on win10 is just crap in my opinion and many others.
Through the "windows update" you also getting drivers updates....
this is a long talk and explanation....
Best you read about more in http://forums.mydigitallife.info/ (http://forums.mydigitallife.info/forums/54-Windows-10).
some solutions exist for controlling the windows updates & driver updates (http://forums.mydigitallife.info/threads/64939-Windows-Update-MiniTool)
