However, on installation I got the message "fail to install the ACPI driver" (using setup.exe) or "Does not support this OS: WNT_6.1.P_64_MCE" (using AsusSetup.exe).

OS: WNT_6.1.P_64_MCE MCE editon(media center edition)? The above does not say win 7. You may need to install it in compatibility mode

(compat mode=right click the installer>properties>compatibility>chose OS)

Are you sure, because I bought the Win7 ultimate edition !
I will try to chose the compatibility mode.
N.B. Searching for "WNT_6.1.P_64_MCE" I found the following site : http://www.viaarena.com/forums/showthread.php?t=39537
They suggested to change the ini-file. Should I do that ??

It appears to just allow you to install the driver on non supported versions. I would not do that unless absolutely necessary, and then only if I had a backup and restore point.

Within 15 minutes, another BSOD !
I enclose the dump files and system health files.
Timestamp of the asacpi is 19-10-2006 (1.532) and the old asacpi still exist !

* Confirming this should be done asap...


Attachment 186204

* AVG is known to be implicated in some BSOD's.
Please remove it.

Download tools and utilities | AVG Worldwide

* FYI
AVG Forums - avgrsa.exe Thrashing Hard Disk!

* To reiterate install MSE.

Sorry, might be foolish, but I don't know how to remove the wrong asacpi.sys.
After I installed the ASUS drivers (see my comment #16/#17) the wrong asacpi.sys stays in the directory \DriverStore\FileRepository\atk2000.inf_amd64_neutral_a91abe245a6c41c.
There is also a new asacpi.sys in the directory \DriverStore\FileRepository\asacpi.inf_amd64_neutral_9fe33cbdd27308a4.

As you suggested I now also removed AVG and installed MSE.

Is asacpi.sys in \windows\system32\drivers?

If so, what is the timestamp?
