    It's possible that driver is wrong/corrupted, did you try reinstalling it ?

    I uninstalled it and then again installed it
    I download the latest drivers from Intel and Asus site.
    I think it is an hardware problem

    Check Resources and logs in Administrative tools. You can use Speccy to see if it shows up. Check in your bios to see if it is turned off. Also make sure that your bios is up to date.
