    Sounds like a problem with the ATK-100 drivers. Update or reinstall from the Asus site and that should fix it. The Hcontrol.exe is one of the 17 files in the update.

    Ditto! Re-install the ATK0100 drivers and all SHOULD be well...

    no luck, still getting error on start up and Fn keys not working. I'll give it one more go.

    Also, does the fan ever go off? I have undervolted to 6x @ 0.700 and 14x @ 1.07 and my cpu idle temp is still around 45-47C

    it might help to add that i have a z63a

    Once the fan starts up... it will stay on indefinitely (in most cases).

    Actually........ Asus' ATK drivers include all theremal management drives (like the ATK is supposed to) -- but it also controls all the hotkeys and function keys.....

    If you're still getting an error - then something's up.. I'd restore the system back to before you had the error because reinstalling it isn't getting rid of it. I guess you could always try to delete them first and then reinstall........ but trying a restore would be pretty easy......

    Are you using Mozilla Firefox? If so, update your Synaptics touchpad drivers from www.synaptics.com
