Very Good.

Tried all of your suggestions and it all worked. Ahh.

Thanks again

I ended up deleting vsmraid.sys from System32\Drivers, and it now boots without the crash and with the memory hole enabled, so I guess my problem is solved.

Then again, maybe not. That DVD drive no longer appears in Disk Management or file managers, even though the BIOS screen sees it.

What about waking from sleep is that working ok?

You know I have never used that controller as a matter of fact I didn't even remember it being on the board. So I'm not going to be much help to you as far as that goes. Sorry.

I haven't used the CD that came with the board in years. I used to go to the Nvidia site and download the drivers directly from them. Unfortunately Nvidia stopped supporting nforce4 about a year or two ago (there so smart).

With all that said I have used the last x64 driver Nvidia developed for vista x64, but saw no performance gain in 7.

(15.23_nforce_winvista64_international_whql)

In short except for the ACPI driver 7 takes care of the rest. I have had 7 get the ACPI driver through windows update although on my last install it didn't work correctly.

You didn't remember it being on the board, because it isn't. It is a controller plugged into a PCI slot. Since I posted about this, I woke up a bit and realized that since rearranging some components between my rigs, I do have a spare SATA connector available on the MB, so I will plug the DVD in there and remove the controller card.

Waking from sleep

No thats the one problem left. So for now I've just set sleep to never. It tries to resume windows but nothing happens.

Also I couldn't find the driver you spoke of in the " ATK1 "ACPI driver for ATK 0110 virtual device for Windows (32bit and 64bit)/2003(32bit & 64bit)/VISTA(32bit & 64bit)". You don't have to install the program just show device manager were the driver is, its in the ASUS_CoolnQuiet_V21706\2.17.06\Acpi64\WINVISTA folder."

I tried that but I didn't see the Asus coolnquiet_v21706\2.17.06 folder, everything was there in the download from Asus but that part.

In other words, I downloaded Atk1 from asus, but couldn't find the right file.

The best idea here would be to update chipset drivers, but as Nvidia doesn't make them, get new drivers for all your hardware, then use driver sweeper when you update them. Also, nvidia chipsets are unstable.

I recently ordered a new BIOS chip for my MB from biosdepot, and it seem quite stable to me.
