View Full Version : Thoughts on the Current Aura (1.07.57) and LiveDash (1.05.02) Issues

Let me preface this with the relevant parts I'm using in my build (also shown in my PC specs, yes this is an odd build I know):


Asus ROG Ryujin AIO (rad size is irrelevant, this likely applies to Ryuo AIOs too)
Trident Z RGB (all 4 slots)
Asus ROG Maximus XI Formula (LiveDash OLED)
Asus ROG Strix RTX GPU (should be applicable for any caliber)


What I've found about Aura 1.07.57 (and also LiveDash 1.05.02) is that the LightingService seems to improperly start up upon boot, which leads to the following:


Trying to open Aura (1.07.57) will lead to the program not responding after a notable wait.
Trying to use LiveDash (1.05.02) will say "Asus device no found !!" or something of that sort.
I also notice my Trident Z RGB sticks doing the default hardware rainbow lights rather than my Aura profile.


There are two temporary potential solutions to Aura not responding (and LiveDash not finding devices), though this may not solve this particular problem for everyone:


Try restarting your computer. This may or may not solve the problem, but it has for me at least once when starting from a shutdown.
Restart the Asus LightingService: Go to Task Manager --> Services and find "LightingService". Right-click it and select "Restart".
Try opening Aura/LiveDash again. It might take a bit before the window appears but it should work.


I've found that the latter seems to work consistently for me, but you would have to restart LightingService every time the computer boots into Windows. I really hope this gets fixed sooner rather than later. (Asus please... can you for at least a quarter of a year stop pushing weird exotic items like the Matrix and Helios and look at your software?)

Now onto the LiveDash issues - even with LightingService restarted and LiveDash successfully finding both the Formula and Ryujin OLEDs, I can't change the Formula OLED to a gif (regardless of whether it is predefined or custom).

The current solution (if you happen to have both OLED parts) to this is to first apply whatever gif animation you want to the Formula (it will not show up at that moment), then go to the AIO Cooler and use the default button to and select yes to setting the AIO to defaults. You will have to change the AIO settings back to whatever you wanted but the Formula OLED will change to the gif you set.

I really hope this somehow helps someone though I have my doubts.

Aura is SO annoying to use. It's frustrating.

I really don't understand why this issue isnt fixed yet. It works flawless when you JUST installed it. But after messing with it for a few minutes, then it starts hanging a lot, not responding, and in the end crashing. And to fix this, you need to uninstall the application, and reinstall it once again.

Besides that, everytime you use anything BUT static rgb, Lightingservice.exe uses extremely high CPU resources.
This is the ONLY software I have issues with when it comes to RGB.

ASUS - Please fix this :(

My thoughts and resolution: Asus software is garbage. and their "customer support" ( if you want to call it that.. ) is even worse. How I solved the problem was this; took Max XI Extreme out of case, repackaged Max XI Extreme, returned to Amazon. Purchased Aorus Xtreme. installed Aorus Extreme. everything works. no problems. the bios isn't quite the same, but it works fine and is nicer than the gigabyte bios used to be. so, now I am happy.

on my Max XI Formula machine, I uninstalled ALL Asus software. switched my ram from G.Skill to Corsair and control that via iCue. unhooked RGB from MB and turned off Aura in bios. Purchased corsair to rgb adapters and run all strips off Lighting node pro.

Asus needs to do two things. 1) actually offer something resembling customer service. ( doubt this will happen. )
2) drop their software team, hire a new software team, trash current software, write something that works. ( ok, maybe that's more than two.. )

moral of the story, maybe buy products from a different company. I have started switching. EVGA has amazing customer service. Aorus ( gigabyte ) hopefully does, but It can't be worse than Asus.

I confirm!

In idle after starting the PC, everything is fine. But it is worth running, for example, the Google Chrome browser, as the LightningService.exe process starts loading the CPU by 1.4-1.7%. If you run some kind of game demanding to the CPU. As a process, LightningService.exe loads the CPU up to 10.9%. Not only does it raise the CPU temperature by 5-7 degrees when you play, so also AURA stops working at all.

And these are already several versions of ASUS AURA Sync, but ASUS does nothing with it. It is very frustrating.

Thx for this! This helped me to get all that stuff running again.
Hopefully all the settings are still there after restarting my system.

I really hope I'm wrong with your case, but I think you would have to manually restart LightingService every time you start your computer back up.

Maybe I can figure out how to write some script that does the job for us on startup...

Hi Cappycot

Why wouldn't ASUS team up with some other company for software, because ASUS' software team are clearly doing poor job for years? They have been working with CableMod, and offering discounts with ROG boards. Guys from Aquacomputer have AquaSuite software that is amazing. They can both brag about it. It will be party time for marketing department. It is win win for both companies.

++++++++ For AquaSuite!

Their LED control is the most advanced out of all out there! Please ASUS team up with them and put an end to AURA misery that we are all experiencing!

Aura(LightingService.exe) still trips Easy Anit-Cheat in Fortnite. Sloppy.

Edit: FINALLY!! I think the false easy-anti cheat trip in fortnite due to Aura seems fixed in 1.07.60. Thank you ASUS.
