Where in the BIOS should I try to find this?
NVM I found it under the Graphics tab, I enabled iGPU multimonitor an installed the driver successfully, Virtu to follow.
BTW, I figured out what was behind mine(and most people's) Fan Xpert 2 crashes, it is because ASUS coded their registry poorly so a registry cleaner like Tune-up utilities would deem a critical ASUS registry as expendable and proceed to delete it, here is the whole story:
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

^^ 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!)
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...
>.>; They really need to lay off the registry coding or make sure their coding is safe from registry cleaners or from registry cruption.
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.Edited by sherlock - 9/26/12 at 7:24am
