Yeah, I do like Asus (It's the only Mobo I buy).

I'm trying a complete reinstall of all the drivers, starting with the networks

Update:
So I did all but the video and bluetooth drivers (bluetooth not detected) and still getting the same error

WTH??? Rule one of driver installation, always start with chipset drivers...

A thougth... are any of those drivers .exe files? If so, you may be able to locate a "drivers" folder and just "point" device to the drivers folder and avoid the install... if that applies.

Reinstalling the os using the Acer recovery disc appears to of fixed the issue.

Yeah, He thinks it might of been when he attempted to install lexmark printer drivers, or the virus he found a few weeks before.

I personally think a file got corrupted and wasn't loading properly. He just picked it up and was happy, so ... Yay :)

Now to get a new fan for my Win 7 Laptop

If your client has a large enough external drive I suggest using Win7's built in image backup software once you get this baby completely configured the way you/client needs it. That way if a problem crops up in the future you have a better image restore than the factory discs.

to my knowledge, he has no external drives, which is ironic with 2 laptops and an older desktop.

He has 2 Thumb drives, but uses them for music in his van.
