I just did a fresh install of windows 7 on my Asus K54c, and now I can't get my old Asus app's anymore. How can I make my windows 7 recognize it as an Asus laptop again. here is a screenshot of my error:

How does live updater do that? Also my old apps like p4g don't work either, which help me save battery.

yeah thats what I did 5 times, but the software thinks that it isn't an asus. I installed windows 7 on a windows 7 disk, not the asus factory one.

You don't want live update, it just causes problems as others have said. Just install the programs you want in order to make the computer run faster with fewer problems. P4G can be downloaded directly from the link, or just browse the FTP site: ftp.asus.com.tw/pub/ (when it is up, which it isn't right now :()

I've all ready tried that, and I still get the same error message. Remember I used a non asus oem disk to install my OS

As long as thats a legal OS that should not matter.
Did you try uninstall live update?
Turn it off in Services ?
Make sure it isnt in start up tab of msconfig ? ect. ???

reboot with the network disconnected ..
wireless off .. or cable unplug'd ?

.. or
reinstall the os .. dont load live update..
put all those drivers you downloaded on a thumbdrive first..good luck.c.

Try to do a reinstall or repair (in Windows Control Panel) of the "ATKACPI driver and hotkey-related utilities".
This kind of error message has been an issue on the ATK Package not properly installed.

YESSSS It worked! I love you PILGRIM! (no homo) This solves the issue I've been having ever since I added a new Samsung SSD 830, again thanks.
I had installed windows 7 fresh with a DVD, so this was all I needed. Thanks you so much.

It turns out I never installed the ATK package at all, after the new win7 install.

Enjoy your ASUS rig..
