Well what type of drivers are you missing? If you don't know go to
Control panel>device manager
if there are any icons Such as that one beside an icon, then there is a driver missing, if possible a screenshot could help.

You can get your drivers here. Just click on the link. :ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download U56E Just download them, save them to your desktop. Go to Device manager, click on the appropriate one(s), point windows to it when prompted and you're good to go.

You do not need or WANT to use any of those driver scanner/finder softwares. Most are garbage and the the others aren't much better. You can get everything you need either from Asus or the vendor themselves. If I were you I would go ahead and make a copy of the ones you are missing to keep as an extra backup. But thats me..

Hope this helped!

OK, here is the screenshot guys. I have been on the Asus driver download page numerous times but i still can't figure where the driver is located.

What you see is words like Hotfix, BIOS, Lan, etc.. I went to the USB download and installed it but device manager still fails to recognize it, i search by internet and from the computer only and i still get the message driver not available.

Thats because its not a usb driver you're looking for. It the wifi.

Here they are, my bad.

Remember having the same problem. Why I said to save a copy. these are the ones you need.

DriverMax may help. But I strongly recommend that you update drivers yourself. Once you know the names of all your devices, you can easily find them on respective manufacturers' websites.
