Drivers for keyboard on windows 10?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm going to sell my laptop soon, and I plan on running DBAN (a secure hard drive wipe tool) on my harddrive; however, I want to make sure that when i install windows 10, the keyboard's FN commands still work (volume, keyboard dim/light, brightness, touch pad disable, etc).

 

I had a bad experience with my laptop (Asus G750jw) when i upgraded my harddrive to an SSD. After a fresh install of windows 10, i lost alot of the functionality of my keyboard. Specifically i couldnt increase and decrease the lights on my keyboard anymore, and i couldnt disable the touch pad. I know its not a hardware issue because when i load back the old harddrive, the keyboard FN functions still work normally.

 

Is there a location i can find the specific drivers needed to maintain keyboard function/ everything else? My laptop model's website just gives me shitty bloatware to download and nothing to give the keyboard it's FN functionality

 

Thanks!

I know using google is quite hard for finding drivers =)

i already said that i tried going here to get the right drivers for my keyboard, but it didnt help me get my Fn functionality back and only gave me a bunch of bloat ware.

Thank you for being so condescending.

My guess is that any FN functionality is within that bloat. Laptops and other prebuilds use custom restore discs where all drivers are already to give you all functionality from start. You can try contacting manufacturer for drivers if there isn't anything on support page.

you're saying that the original disk that came with my laptop has the drivers necessary to give full keyboard functionality back to my laptop?

It should, yes. But I haven't used disc to restore in long time, you should be in contact with manufacturers support for details.

On my first glance I would say nothing under the win 10 64 Bit section, you'll need to go back to Win 8.1/8 for that drivers/software. The naming scheme is terribad, I would try out what sound like it would go in the right direction. How old was the machine? around 3 Years now?
