    [WARNING] Do NOT update TX201LA to Windows 8.1

    As of 18-Nov-2013, it is HIGHLY recommended that users of the Transformer Book Trio do not upgrade to windows 8.1

    There are no Win 8.1 drivers for the keyboard, mainly the toggle for Android/Windows when docked. The workaround is to have to reboot your tablet when you need to switch operating systems until this is fixed.

    Thanks @delesp for pointing this out.

    Check the Asus Support site (or google search for "TX201LA Android Driver") to check when a driver for Win 8.1 is available.

    Hi Frederuco, good idea! It will prevent future users to update it!

    That's the plan. Usually they will come here AFTER they update to see how to fix it...

    Hi, I got mine onNov 11th and went straight to win 8.1, it worked fine and no keyboard issues, switch from android <> win works fine.

    I have some other issues, like when win8.1 sleeps if I shut the lid the it does not wake up properly, win8.1 is up as shared Android disks work, but screen is blank,
    Power off/on of windows resolved pb of course.. I guess that is the only major issue I have.

    Should I still backout of win 8.1 u think ?

    Cheers smiler

    You "deep sleep issue" is due to W8.1. That's why I haven't recommanded to update the TRIO (among other issues)

    Just so you all know I've had my TX201LA for 2 weeks now and hit the 8.1 issue on the second day when updating from 8 to 8.1. Very frustrating as some apps won't work on 8 (Facebook amongst them). Also want to see if Intel WIDI is supported (anyone know?).

    Intel has released a new driver that seems to solve the wake from sleep/screenoff issues in 8.1

    https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Det...&DwnldID=23405

    Unfortunately if you can't install it as it needs to be issued (and moded?) by ASUS. Have asked for a response but am not holding my breath

    FYI - I spent many an unhappy happy hour installing 8.0 and all my apps (again) and am waiting for a response from ASUS support who've been less than helpful throughout the process. In fact I appear to know much more about the issue than they do! Can't believe that all owners would not have the same problem and would expect a FAQ at a minumum to stop others haveing the same problem. First response from ASUS support (promised within 48hrs of posting a support issue) actually came over 4 days later, and all they asked me to do at the end of a long sequence of emails was track the Microsoft forums for updates on any similar problem! Anyone else think their support is a complete waste of time?

    You can't install it via the .exe file, but you can update manual the graphics driver via .inf file. but it seems that there is also an issue when using this driver with switchen between android-windows. so maybe better wait for an asus driver.

    See here (in german): Asus Transformer Trio (TX201) - Windows 8.1 Treiber

    With that driver update there is also Intel Wireless Display (WiDi) Feature implemented.
