    I think this could come down to missing .dll files. Have you tried locating the .dll files from W7 and see if by copying it over to the corresponding locations in W8, will work?

    In W7 go into Device Manager and find these devices, right click and Properties, Drivers, then Driver Details.

    Base system device drivers are the card reader drivers, mostly Ricoh. You can run the driver.exe and it should get installed. Alternatively, extract the driver to a folder on the hard disk, right click the entry with the yellow exclamation in device manager and point to that folder. Similarly for the Ethernet driver.

    When you installed win8, didn't you back up your previous drivers?

    one of my lappy is an Asus X52JT however mobo is k52jt, yeah a little confusing . Anywho; I have seen that base system device driver missing, but figured out it was JMICRON that was lacking.
    Watch out for BIOS, make sure you check the one for your mobo in Asus page, flashing the wrong thing will brick your unit. Mine is 206 from here, ASUS - Ordinateurs portables- ASUS X52JT
    Always triple verify, then flash outside of windows if necessary.
    Install drivers from Asus page, you can go up to an X55 grab some drivers, then head on to jmicron for drivers or a site like this: J-MICRON drivers & utilitaires
