Well, since it has been 5 hours without a response, I will assume you guys are sleeping.....while I am working..... Anyway, with all this time on my hands, I have now installed ALL of the utilities on the Asus Suite. Not one instance of asacpi on my system or in the registry. Probably one of the updates to the downloadable version versus the CD version. I will have to assume the asacpi is started the same as the other drivers, so let me know if you need a guess. The .inf file for installing the asacpi file is located on the CD if Elmer knows how to interpret it.... HELLO....anyone there ???? Wake the heck up!!!!!!
