comment Recovery partition doesn't work on Asus ZenBook
I will try all of those things. I just noticed Intel released some new Dual Band Wireless drivers about 10 days ago, so maybe that'll fix the NIC and Bluetooth issues. I'm afraid Asus will just tell me 8.1 isn't supported, or to contact Microsoft and/or the hardware manufacturers; but worth a shot anyway.

Yes, but all of these problems appeared after I upgraded to 8.1.

comment Recovery partition doesn't work on Asus ZenBook
@Ramhound - And before you ask, yes.. I've checked each and every one of these drivers and upgraded when new drivers were available (either through Asus.com, the hardware manufacturer, or Windows update). All versions are up to date. Sometimes this makes things a bit better, but overall the system is still incredibly buggy. Windows 8.1 has a few nifty features (OneDrive offline sync for example), but not worth an unstable system.

Most of them. The video driver is pretty wonky. The screen starts flickering on/off rapidly and you have to close the lid and re-open it to get it to stop. Windows have re-painting issues where you have to move the mouse to get it to re-draw. Bluebooth is totally hosed. Every 30min or so, the mouse stops working and you have to turn it off, back on again. Sometimes even re-pair it. Network driver as well. When it resumes from sleep, it sees no wireless networks until you reboot. It's really too buggy to be usable; I'd rather go back to 8.0 which had stable, well-tested drivers.

Meaning either Asus didn't put one on, or the Windows 8.1 upgrader messed it up somehow. Anything I can do?

I couldn't find anything called Computer Configuration on my machine, so I didn't try your way.

Found it! You have to run netplwiz, then go to the Advanced tab and check the Enable Secure Logon checkbox.
