    A new problem just started.. I try to run a program from the ASUS Support CD
    and am greeted with the message.. Can't execute the kernel mode driver
    service !!

    The event log shows an event ID of 7000 and a description that the file
    ASUSHWIO.DLL can not be found. The file IS there.

    I found this problem when trying to reinstall the NVIDIA drivers from the CD

    Any help ???

    Did you uninstall the Nvida drivers before reinstalling?

    side note:

    I have had errors regarding ASUSHWIO.DLL in the past -
    for me it was issues with "asus probe" failing to execute on startup.

  3. My experience with manufacturer's CD's says that they are largly loaded with
    32bit stuff!!! If you're having a 64bit system up and running, you should
    get your drivers from the manufacturer's site, or nVidia, in this case.

    Failure to correctly un-install, seems to be one of 1.000's of possible
    causes for this event.

    You say the file IS there? Do check the path where you can see it, in a
    64bit system you would find it in a folder named 'amd64' - not 'i386' or

  4. My Asus support cd does not contain the 64-bit drivers I need. I have to
    use the website for 64-bit drivers. You may find that true in your case.
