Hi, I want to downgrade my computer from windows 10 to windows 8.1 but the manufacturers website doesn't include drivers for my model in windows 8.1. Can you suggest what should I do?

Model: Asus Notebook Pc X541UA

Hi, Wireless LAN card driver :

This one should work for Nvidia mobile 920.

And I suggest you search this website to find the rest of the drivers. They are there.

You need to post the exact specs of your laptop so the members could help you . From what I've seen there are different variants of your laptop.

Can you help me again? I have finished installing all of my drivers except for the numpad driver and the touchpad driver. I have looked all over the internet but can not seem to find any.

Sorry , I was away , could you copy/paste the devices ID from device manager (the ones with the yellow exclamation marks) ?

well i think i found out myself how to do those things. For some reason, windows 8.1 keeps enabling scroll lock whenever i log in, that's the issue with the numpad. The asus precision touchpad driver i had was faulty, so i had to uninstall that driver and had the windows 8.1 default driver instead:/
