Install DriverMax 126.96.36.1993 or driveridentifier http://www.driveridentifier.com/desktop.php and drivers choose to present it requires inscription on site.
I had the same problem but once I installed these two could find the drivers it needed. You can also go to the asus website and search for the model name of your laptop.
I have another problem: after install win7, the batery not charge. I bought the laptop with Vista, but I installed XP, now installed
Windows 7, everything is working perfectly but not charge the battery, I've
tried everything: calibration, tested various power plans, I ended up buying a
new battery but no result . I think it must be some kind of driver or change
something in the BIOS that I lack despite having returned to install XP and
Vista and battery re-charging without problem. if you can help me send email firstname.lastname@example.org good luck
You have to go to BIOS setup, find HDD setup, and change the value to the other one (there are only two possibilities). That will fix your problem. The problem is caused by the fact that the lap top was designed for vista, not XP. and the lap top contains SATA HDD. when installing XP pre-installation doesn't have SATA drivers, so your OS can not see the HDD. Change it in BIOS, and you trouble is gone
Nomally on a vista installed lap you will have reverse compatibility issues when you try to install xp cause vista is a newer editon than xp. So it would be advisible to use a virtual machine software to install xp inside vista.By doing this you can simultaneously run vista and xp at the same time.you can download free software line SUN VMWare.
Its true. the Bios or HDD driver wont allow you to install Win XP on it.. This BIOS is compatible with only Win Vista. The only easy way to do it is by creating 2 partitions while installing vista. once vista is installed- install XP with Dual boot and than format the vista partition.
you need to have internet connection first then go to the website http://www.windowsupdate.com and you need to update the operating system from that site. in the process of updating it there will be an option there to update it to service pack 2 already.. sometimes you need to update other things first in the same website before that option comes up.
