I had tried Classic Shell but it was still annoying to use Windows 8, things did not work the way I liked.

My keyboard is not backlit, even though the listing says it is. I even went in and exchanged it and it was the same issue. Kind of a bummer, but not a deal breaker for this laptop! Bestbuys specs are wr.

Hi there, I recieved my laptop yesterday and was thrilled with it until I starter using win8, I never thought a software company could come up with something worse than windows vista, but I guess Microsoft is full of surprises...


Would you be so kind to put a little tutorial of the steps necessary to get rid of win8 and start using win7, please, please??

Just make sure to 3) "reset to default" all the other options in the BIOS .

:thumb:Thanks a lot, you have the good solution!!!!

I bought a N56VJ-DH71 several years ago, I have been very happy with the Laptop. I hated the windows 8 that came on it and it would not upgrade to 8.1, so I loaded Windows 7 x64, and it works great. I got all the drivers from the Asus website (must use a previous laptop version to get drivers for the hardware, N56VZ model) except the Webcam driver because it was NA for Win7.
Looking over the Internet over the last 2 years was unfruitful until today I finally found a driver, Yea! The Webcam device is listed as manufactured by Sunplus Innovations" - this is the first step in tracking down a driver, but Sunplus Innv. doesn't have any drivers on their website.
After some more searching I found it at this link.
(http://support.ts.fujitsu.com/Index...wareGUID=FC6E4F3C-4032-4D60-8E2E-D5F95E27B0DA).
Device driver name: "Sunplus Camera Driver Ver. 3.4.9.7 (20/08/2012) 3.14MB"
It worked on my laptop, This driver is suppose to support Win 7 & 8.
I hope this helps others who have been frustrated with finding the Webcam driver.
