    Hello, after installing Windows 8.1 x64 on ASUS-G750JZ-T4039D with an Nvidia GeForce 880M GPU, I can only run on the Intel HD option. The nvidia GPU isn't being recognized and I don't even have an nvidia control panel. I've attached a screenshot. The Nvidia website just keeps offering me some Grand Theft Auto driver that I don't need. I'm not sure what to do, after deleting it from device manager and clicking scan for new hardware it just appears the same way again. How do I get the drivers and the nvidia control panel?

    i do believe that this laptop is meant for windows 7 home premium 64 bit. there are no drivers for that video card compatible with windows 8.1... im guessing you cant get your resolution to its native setting as well?

    download this driver
    http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/nb...34752.zip?_ga=1.40453930.988022078.1430605388


    it is a zip file
    Save as that to your desktop
    when saved right click and extract all - again to the desktop
    Leave it there


    download this driver
    http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/nb...1027.zip?_ga=1.203900568.988022078.1430605388


    That is also a zipfile do the same with that driver


    Then REBOOT the computer


    Go to the unzipped chipset driver folder open it and click the setup file
    the last on the list.


    Follow the instructions
    REBOOT the computer


    Go back to the desktop open the Nvidia folder
    click the setup file - next to last I think you will find
    Follow instructions


    if all is well
    REBOOT and check


    come back if Network controller is still shown as problem or indeed of course any other problem


    Those drivers are the Win 8.1 64 bit from the Asus site
