    I
    So when you installed the chipset drivers you clicked use local version? That's what i wanted to highlight if yes i don't really have any other suggestions.

    Except disable any undervolts or other things going on since I had issues with MSI afterburner in the past for instance, I hope you manage to solve your issues and it's not hardware related.

    Yes, i used local only in those installs. No under\over clocking is made as i have had no chance to do that.
    I hope so, too. I'm sure it's not hardware related as win 8.1 is stable as rock. Downside is that gpu drivers won't install on it as it's not supported.
    Anyway, thank you for tips.

    For anyone with the problem "Touchpad Not Working", I've just spent the last month or so trying to get my touchpad to start reliably with the computer as I normally had done, before I began updating things such as Bios and drivers and installing items. I made an early simplistic video and after a week I had a massive list of discoveries of what I think the problem may have been/may be.

    Here is the the best and most comprehensive of the videos I have made yet to describe the touchpad recurring issues and how I have fixed the problem somewhat success rate as now for 2 straight days (Oct 4th and 5th) it has started properly with the computer.
    The video highlights what I discovered from over 1000 hours of looking into this problem



    is a 10 minute video to describe issues I had with Smart Gesture, (which you can't use on our computer in 1703 Win 10 at any rate. The corresponding updated ATK driver, which is most likely the root of the problem, and their combined uninstall of my original ASUS touchpad drivers which they demanded to do when they were installed or attempt installed. The problems one encounters perhaps when one has not installed the latest Windows Update yet. As I am still running the basic version of Windows 10 which came with the system. of 1703 from Spring 2017. The latest touchpad issues I had after this video came from a uninstall of the driver and scan for hardware changes which again allowed Windows 10 to change the Registry permission and turn off the "device" (touchpad) for power saving, which is a terrible problem in Windows now for many people. It appears that the Windows boot manager also will shut this "device" off when a plugged USB device is drawing power during machine staartup. So it could help to have USB stick/hubs with power switches on individual ports. I have had to get used to shutting off a particular device during starting.

    Still main fix is the uninstall of the newer ATK, reinstall of the older one, and uninstall of the Smart Gesture and reinstall of the ASUS touchpad driver found on our ASUS system drivers page.

    Still running the new 305 BIOS. No major BIOS system changes or rollbacks done thus far You can also press F2 during starting and using the touchpad in there can help to ensure Windows will have to let it work. Could help those with no secondary pointing device..

    Just seen that Samsung will be doing 32gb sodimm sticks. I remember our laptop was listed as taking 32gb maximum, just wondering if this still stands now that we could theoretically get 64gb over 2 ram slots?

    There is a chance that it will work with 2 x 32GB. RAM controller on Ryzen CPUs is designed to handle 64GB max.

    OK. Maybe ill try in the future.

    On a related note, I actually recently got a second stick at 2666mhz (so I mixed 2400 and 2666 sticks) and weirdly the Gaming Centre is showing all ram running at 2666mhz ?!?! - https://imgur.com/a/FYqU2ke

    I posted this on a few reddit forums and someone suggested I do a user benchmark. Apparently it is all running at 2666mhz..weird if true. http://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/10830167#MEMORY_KIT

    EDIT: Just ran HWiNFO64 (more reliable than GC) and alas, both are running at 2400mhz. Excitement over.

    Has anyone here does Userbenchmark for their system? Did mine and it shows mediocre to poor performance on the GPU, just wondering of this is to be expected of the RX580 in the system - http://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/10847543

    Probably because the 65W TDP RX 580 in this system is underclocked by 20% or more compared to desktop reference or factory overclocked RX 580 cards.

    I remember reading something it being underclocked, but I was looking at the top performing models of the GL702ZC (can view the list here - http://www.userbenchmark.com/System/Asus-GL702ZC/70719) and the best one gets a score of 65%, whereas mine come in at 45% . Maybe it's just better silicon or something, but a 20% difference I thought was suspicious.
