ASUS FanXpert 2 on Z77 Motherboards - Page 10

post #91 of 95
My Fan Xpert2 had the "Can not load AsacpiEx.dll" yesterday, I had to do a complete registry clean-up to get a clean install done then reinstall it. Now today after tune-up utilities nailed a ASUSFanControl registry during registry clean-up it started causing issues again. Now I get this when I try to activate Fan Xpert2:



Just found this on ASUS forum:

^^ Just because my name is Adr I came to give great news to the people that are having issue with Asus software not letting Fan Xpert 2 install (because they relay too much on registry entry >.> REALLY BAD IDEA!)

Anyways ^^

Step 1: Uninstall Fan Xpert 2-
Uninstall Asus Fan Xpert 2 by going to start->All Programs->Asus-AI Suite II->Uninstall.exe It'll ask what you want to uninstall. Just select the Fan Xpert 2. Give it time as it uninstalls the program it’ll then ask you to restart. Go on and restart.

Step 2: Shut down Services-
You would think that uninstalling the programs would clean up the service? Well you guess wrong lol. Go to start->run->type 'services.msc' without the ''and then hit enter->Find the Asus services AsusFanControlService and right click it. Hit Stop. If you don't see it, keep looking or skip this step.


Step 3: Optional delete more- I do not know if this step helped or not (I have a feeling it did not, but just in case) once you have stop the service you can now delete the folder it was in. Go to the following location: 'C:\Program Files (x86)\ASUS\AsusFanControlService' and delete only that folder.

Step 4: Remove the entry in the registry-
The next step is really important you followed the first two steps right, so please make sure you did em and that you restarted your computer after the uninstall. Do the follow manual To do it manually: go to start->run-> type in 'regedit' and enter. On this screen, you need to navigate to the following location: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\ASUS\AsusFanService(if this don't exist at that location skip this step) and delete that entry by selecting the entry and hiting delete on it. *Note, only delete the AsusFanService entry and leave everything else alone... please exit the program once done. Then restart your computer for the settings to take place.


Step 5: Reinstalling-
Download the newest version for it at the website. Once downloaded, unzip it and go to the Setup.exe and just check the Fan Xpert 2 to be installed. Once it's finished, it'll ask to restart. Go on and do so.

There you go ^^ should install right now. This will also work for when someone misuses a registry cleaner also. This might even work for other issues with the Asus software...

if you want me to make a hot patch for the most command non-working ones let me know. It took me a few days to understand what had happen and how to fix it. I end up calling Asus, but was told the only way to fix it was to restore my pc frown.gif I question why I would need to do such thing and was given so many weird answers that I just end up having to study how their program worked.

>.>; They really need to lay off the registry coding or make sure their coding is safe from registry cleaners or from registry cruption.

Guess I will have to layoff registry cleaner or manually select which registry I want to clean until ASUS fixes this issue.

Update: The method I quoted above have fixed my Fan Xpert2. I turned off automatic maintenance in tune-up utilities so that the registry won't get screwed up without my notice. Using tune-up utilities registry checking I found a single registry error, the same one that caused my Xpert2 to malfunction:

If you have Fan Xpert2 installed and run a registry cleaning program like Tune-up utilities make sure you disable automatic maintenance and check for this registry when it present you with a list of registries to clean.


If this show up, don't one click clean the registry, make sure you uncheck this registry on the maintainance window to prevent it from getting deleted as it have been proven in my case that deleting this cause my Xpert2 to Malfunction and refuse to load.

Has anyone had issues with certain non-pwm fans? I tried three gelid silent 12 120mm fans and none of them recorded accurate RPM data, they caused the program to throw a math error when I ran Fan Auto Tuning, and then could not be tuned afterward running only full speed. sometimes they would report 1800rpm instead of 900-ish, and even as high as 24 or 54 THOUSAND RPM.

I just updated to the most recent release but I have all my fans hooked up, 4 plus my cpu cooler to my motherboard all working great (stock NZXT fans and a CM Hyper 212 evo) and the remaining three are connected to my case fan controller. I would love to know if there is a fix for this thuogh, or a general issue with some fans being incompatible?

Hey guys I'm having a problem with thermal radar on my z77. Basically my assist fans turn OFF when my computer is ON. and turn ON when my computer is OFF. Any ideas? I tried changing the profile, and the profile in the bios, but either it does nothing or just reverts back to how it was initially. Really anoying ;/ Also, when I go on fan xpert 2 to try and alter the assist fan, it doesn't recognize anything. Help.
