OK, a solution that helped me along a lot, should have come
from ASUS in the first place, but whatever.
Start button – right-click “computer” – click properties - menu
on the left open “Device Manager”. Under “Other Devices” are the devices
sometimes named, sometimes not, with the dreaded yellow sign with exclamation mark
something is wrong. Right-click on the first, click properties and on the
pop-up menu op the details tab. Under property you can open a list of details
and click on Hardware ID (mostly the second option).
You will find something like this (copied from my solution,
The VEN is for vendor, or manufacturer. The DEV is the device. If you search
google for these like this:
"10EC 8136", or "10EC 8136 driver"
For example, this is a Realtek RTL8101E/RTL8102E PCI Express Fast Ethernet
End of quote.
Same way, a 8086 code means made by Intel.
With the device name and type you can get the drivers. I try
to use only drivers from the manufacturers sites. Try get at least the Ethernet
and network controller drivers so you can connect to internet. Once there, you
can use windows update and maybe Intel utilities to get the rest of the drivers
