    I just did both of the tools and no I haven't updated Realtek since it took forever to download their site and i couldnt find a place where i could download the touch pad drivers.

    OH, by the way. I have the touchpad normally closed because I use my mouse and the shortcut Fn + F9 seems to work BUT when I try to open the settings from taskbar, this comes up: Click image for larger version

    Realtek has 6 download links for each option. in all different regions of the world.

    I Googled before and found a 2010 Touchpad driver for you which would be much better, but you should probably try to find 2011 or 2012.

    There are no new crashes at all.

    But each link has speed of 14kt/s and it takes over an hour.

    I'll try to find ELAN drivers too

    Gotta be honest here - the download speed is not something I can help you with besides having pointed out the numerous links. You're wondering why something might be happening and I've shown you how to go about things, while also having repaired the machine from suffering bsods. I suppose before requesting further help, the advice given should be completely applied.

    Good luck!

    If you have problems after, then it would be cool to request further assistance.

    I found the latest Realtek drivers by Googling and the latest 2012 touchpad driver from Asus' site. I went to see a movie and I left my computer on and after I came back it was still working! I dont know if this was just good luck or if the problem is fixed but i guess we'll see tomorrow if the freezing continues. I just dont understand how installing the new drivers would help.

    Probably a little of both.
