    Reinstall the Chipset (Core) Drivers

    2. Using Windows Explorer click on empty space in that folder
    3. Shift +Right-click that empty space then select Open command window from the menu
    4. In the Command Window type infinst_autol -overall and press enter

    The Safer Method to Flash a System BIOS

    1. Format a USB drive to FAT32 format.
    2. Download the new BIOS and unzip it to the USB drive.
    3. Remove USB drive after you're certain the file transfer is complete.
    4. Restart your notebook and while the ASUS logo is on the screen press F2 or del a few times to enter the BIOS setup.
    5. Find the Easy Flash Utility and insert the USB drive. Tell Easy flash where your BIOS file is then follow directions explicitely!!!
    6. When your notebook restarts, enter the BIOS Setup utility again and select "Load Optimized Defaults" (I think it's f9 )
    7. Save and Exit, then continue into Windows.

    Thanks, JR!

    I think for many users, your list (combined with your very useful signature! ) makes it a lot easier to find the new drivers for their machines. While the driver thread is an important resource when all the links are working, I don't think it's organized very well at all. For new owners, especially, there's really nothing to tell them what they actually need out of the somewhat overwhelming assortment of versions listed there.

    Thanks! I just put the newest ones on top of each category.

    I suggested reorganizing Chastity's thread to her, but as usual, she ignored me. lol :shrugs:
