Hi , i have a problem :(

I have got a pci express system with the new ASUS A8N-E mobo, x850xt pe and 3500+ 64 athlon. I have installed all the drivers ont he motherboard disc, however when i look in device manager there is a device thats not working properly. i go to update driver, and it says : The File ASACPI.sys on ATK0110 ACPI UTILITY is needed.

However this file isnt on my motherboard driver disc, and i was wondering if there was a place i could get it from?

    Hi dextexmex

    Here is a snip


    Also, and this goes for all of you, the UNKNOWN DEVICE in device manager issue has been solved. This is caused by AI Booster, which apparantly is a small ASIC that Asus added to the motherboard.

    It needs a driver to get rid of the unknown device, so install AI Booster. Or, like I will, don't bother with it, as I won't be using AI Booster anyway, just rest assured it is not something to worry about. Asus said it will be fixed in an upcoming BIOS release, so it doesn't show as an unknown device anymore.

    end snip

    this should hopefully do the trick
