I have tried to upgrade my Asus N82JQ laptop from Windows 8 to 9.1. It is an i7 with an nVIDIA 3500 gpu. It came with Windows 7, and the upgrade to Windows 8.0 was effortless. However I upgraded to 8.1 with no problems at first. Then it started freezing requiring re-boots. I took it in to my local computer shop, and he said that Asus told him that the computer was incompatible with 8.1. I upgrade the video drivers to no avail. I contacted Asus, and they said that since the computer was sold with Windows 7, they can't help. I contacted Microsoft, but they were as useless as my dog. Their forums suggest everything but howling at the moon (wait, I think they did suggest that). I have upgraded lesser computers (5) with no problems.Does anybody out there know what, if anything I can do?

I've been having problems with upgrading from 8.1 to 8.1 Update 1 on my ASUS laptop. I've looked around and there's a ton of manual crap you can do, but eh.

I'm just going to wipe it and see if it works.
