Hello and a happy new year!
My sister recieved a brand new Asus X550 series, with no preinstalled OS. (i5-4200u, gt740m, 4gb RAM, 750GB HDD)
She gave it to me to set it up.
Installed Windows 7, all the necessary drivers etc. After downloading the latest nvidia driver and the final restart, Device Manager says : "Code 43: Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems" . All the Windows updates were up to date.
I even tried the Driver Sweeper(in safe mode) method and after that installing an earlier driver. Still the same result.
Can i try something else or should I just send it back? Remember, the laptop is brand new, this shouldn't be happening.

code 43 is a graphics driver error to answer that question its usually a important missing file so a refresh is only way to fix it that i have seen so far

Hi Bessem Romane, are you using Windows 7 64bit?

I just bought ASUS K551LB notebook but not satisfied with it's Windows 8.1 OS. I want downgrade to Windows 7 64bit. I would like to find out where did you download those drivers?
