I have downgraded my ASUS Q400A (i7-3632QM cpu @2.20 GHz 64 bit 8 GB Ram Year 2013 model) from windows 8.1 premium to Windows 7 pro 64 bit. I also upgraded ram from 8 to 16 gb. Asus does not support W7 64 bit drivers. I have installed generic intel drivers
Win64-152824.exe (Intel® HD Graphics Driver for Windows* 7/8-64-bit Version: 22.214.171.124.4229 (Latest) Date: 6/5/2015)
and wifi driver wireless_15.8.0_s64.exe
Most of the Asus supported Fn buttons don't work. All of my USB ports and CD/DVD rom works.
But the computer really sucks and it stalls and moving cursor from one end to another and opening and closing windows is too bad. I have tried to speed up the laptop to best of my knowledge. Well, this is a brand new installation of w7 and has 16 gb ram. Now, It is pretty much useless or worthless piece of bleep. I don't have the back up of the original W8 image or restore to original condition that laptop came with. I was over confident that W7 would work fine. Should I have to go back to W8.1. I don't want to upgrade to W10 instead burn my laptop.
This slowness is because I don't have the correct drivers? Can I install drivers that ASus has for W8.
Please somebody advice me what should I do to bring it up to normal or decent computer.
