My ASUS tablet's sound, touchscreen and battery icon. It's really annoying, I've tried using windows update, IOBit Driver Update (Which worked! I was so happy, but after a reboot, it stopped working) so nothing worked in the end. It seems like my OS (Win 8.1 Pro) thinks that it's a desktop. Does anyone have an idea what to do? If you need anything like my tablet's specs just let me know how to get them and I'll post them here!


Thanks in advance for answering.




As i'm writing this everything started working again after installing intel drivers. No clue if it'll stay like this so still keeping this up! It started working after my tablet died and i plugged it in. Sounds doesn't actually seem to work though, changing the volume just freezes the little window.

Please run the Windows 8.1 Refresh.


A Refresh basically will reinstall the operating system, this will not affect your personal files if you use the option to save them in the instructions.  The downside is that this will uninstall all of your third party programs you installed.  Windows 8.1 will place a list of removed apps on your desktop after refreshing your PC, I would suggest that you copy this list for a reference when you go to reinstall these programs.

Press the Windows key OS4o0pO.png  and the I key to open Settings.

In Settings click/tap on Recovery, click/tap on Refresh your PC without affecting your files, then Get Started.

You will see a page titled Refresh you PC, click/tap on Next.  On the next page click/tap on Refresh.

The computer may turn off and back on during this process, you don't need to do anything.  The scan will display a percentage of its completion.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
