    My vote is leave well enough alone as well. To me the time to try out those new drivers on the website is if you do a clean install of vanilla Windows 10 from Microsoft and there ends up being unknown devices or exclamation points in device manager. And, first thing when I purchase a new computer off the shelf is to make a backup image of the original factory software load - followed shortly by a clean install of vanilla Windows 10.

    I concur with 'Ken' that the best place do update besides routine Windows Update is via the Device Manager. Just expand each major driver type and r-click and then 'Update Driver Software/Search automatically ...' If something isn't right afterward, you can repeat except click 'Properties' and roll back to previous version which, effectively, uninstalls and reinstall driver you KNOW was working. I do this every couple months and usually find something missed by Windows and the Mfr.

    ASUS K75DE laptop, Asus M4N68T-M V2 µATX Motherboard, and Asus M2N68-AM SE2 µATX Motherboard, all running just fine on the stock Windows update supplied drivers. There are no Windows 10 drivers listed for any of them on their respective ASUS support pages. I'm not a believer in those Driver Update utilities, even the ones offered up by the OEM itself. I've never found them to be reliable.

    Can someone assist me on getting my drivers updated?


    The only thing about the ASUS that I don't like is that it doesn't have a backlit keyboard which means when I press the caps lock or number lock keys, it doesn't light up or tell me that caps lock or number lock is on. However, there is some kind of software that I can download from ASUS that tells me when caps or num lock is on or off. If someone could help me with that, that would be appreciated.

    Access Denied

    Pull up this website and if you can find it, then look under ATK. I don't even know if it's installed. But I really don't think it is.

    So that is a fix to something you likely already have.

    This is a zip so you would click on the link below. Once downloaded it should be a folder showing the zipped folder icon.

    http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/nb/..._VER100050.zip

    You would right click on folder and select extract all. This will create a folder with the same name but it won't show the "Zipper"

    Create a restore point.
    Windows Key + R
    type sysdm.cpl
    Enter
    Window Opens
    Click on System Protection Tab
    Click on Create
    Follow the prompts.

    When restore point created go back to the extracted folder. Find Setup file and double click. Follow prompts. Now I can't find manual for product so not sure how to turn on. I can't install on my system but tomorrow I might have access to Asus laptop with this software, maybe.

    Now as an alternate I offer you this simple utility. Once downloaded, right click and scan with your AV. I just downloaded and scanned, no issues, but good to recheck. I use this on my hp laptop.

    http://keyboard-leds.com/files/keyboard-leds.exe

    Here is the original download page and it has a video.

    Free Caps Lock indicator software

    Once download, create restore point as above. When restore point created double click on keyboard-leds.exe This launches product. Set up with colors you want and other settings.

    This puts a small icon in your systray. Not sure how you have yours set up. If the icon doesn't show then

    Right click in task bar
    click "Settings" right at the bottom of menu.
    scroll down a little on right side and click on "Select which icons appear on task bar"
    Turn on "Keyboard Led's"

    Hi Jesse.

    Check my wife's Asus laptop. She doesn't use this Asus feature. She has a very small indicator in the lower left corner of laptop keyboard surface.

    That keyboard LED's will do what you want, indicate caps and num locks. If you want to try it.

    What indicator are you talking about on your wife's computer? I downloaded the Keyboard LED software last night. So far it works fine.
