    ASUS Splendid Video Enhancement Technology

    Hi,

    I reformatted my ASUS G74sx with a fresh copy of Win 7 64bit, and am trying to add back in the few ASUS utilities and functions that I actually want to use on my laptop.

    One of them is the ASUS Splendid Video Enhancement Technology, I believe that's what it's called, when I used to press the Fn + some other key (think it's the space bar - It may have also worked by just pressing the ROG key next to the power button on this laptop too - Can't be 100% certain), it would allow me to choose between different screen choices, I mean like gaming, movies, things like that. I think it basically changed the contrast and maybe color enhancement.

    So I've downloaded the ASUS Splendid Video Enhancement Technology driver at ASUS support site, however after installing it and reboothing I still can't get it to function and give me the choices that it did with the full asus package on this laptop.

    Maybe I'm not downloading all that I need to make that work? Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    I believe ASUS Splendid is a utility rather than a driver. Do you display this utility in "Start - All Programs - ASUS Utility"? If so, does it launch successfully?

    It is tied in to the Fn-C key combination through the ASUS ATK Package.

    yes asus splendid actually allows you to choose diff contrast.. like what dstrakele said, launch it 1st

    btw you mentioned that FN+Spacebar = that key is for changing the laptop setting between, power saving / performance mode / office etc etc.

    Hmm, I can't get either of those functions to work. Fn + C does nothing, and Fn + Spacebar does nothing.

    No, for some reason the splendid video enhancement isn't showing up in the Asus utilities folder at all, I'll check if I can run it from where ever it installed to.

    Ok, it tries to start up when I start the computer, but comes up with the following:

    ACMON Error
    Failed to prepare Critical file!
    Chameleon Engine out of service!

    Then the Ok button which just closes that error window.

    Clues?

    I do have the ATK keyboard software installed.

    Did you install the ASUS ATK Package?

    If so, launch "Control Panel - Uninstall a program", right-click on ATK Package and choose "Repair" from the popup menu. Do you then get some functionality from Fn-C and Fn-Spacebar?

    Uninstalling and reinstalling it fixed it. No more error and now it works correctly.

    Have to admit that this is the first time that I've ever had a problem with a program and uninstalling and resinstalling it has actually fixed the problem.

    Thanks all.

    That error must mean the poor little chameleon powering the computer from his roll cage must've died or is taking a break.

    If I was in your situation I'd try this:

    "I had this same issue on two brand new Asus K53Sv's after the Asus update.

    The fix is to download a program called Ccleaner http://www.piriform.com/CCLEANER

    Then uninstall Asus Splendid using the Add/Remove programs in Windows. You will be prompted to reboot. Do that.

    Once you rebooted, run Ccleaner and clean the registry. Keep cleaning till nothing shows up on the scan.

    REinstall the correct version of Asus Splendid for your machine.

    Viola!

    Did the same thing on both of mine and they work A-OK.

    Ccleaner removes all the left over crap from the registry and allows the program to install cleanly.

    Good luck."


    I cut this from the thread http://vip.asus.com/forum/view.aspx?...age=2&count=21 so I wouldn't have to type it....

    Lightbulb Can't install Asus Splendid Utility

    So everything clear from title. Installation stucks at approx 65% and do newer complete. I already have been trying install different versions, clear register from any splendid entries but nothing works. Any thoughts?

    True, either start menu > Asus Utilties or FN+C should activate Splendid whereas i normally keep it in "Normal" Mode. Additioanl color modifications can be done using Nvidia Control panel which i don't prefer it for ages.

    You may have to use e-driver or provided CD bundled in your notebook, note that e-driver is also located in drive C: which should include pre-installed utilites even splendid is not a driver.
