    You can't take such DLLs for granted. I don't have the time to develop driver for that backlight currently

    Hey guys, I've been watching this thread, until I had to finally register and reply.

    I am having the same problem with "Can't Synchronise with...", and no matter what I do, doesn't matter what version of HControl.exe I use, old or new, with or without the hexediting, the error window STILL pops up...

    All I want to do is have FN + Direction keys do their pause/play function.

    Any help would be extremely appreciated...

    Kill the asus keys process first via task manager and then try again.

    OK, this is what I did yesterday evening:

    1. Downloaded Konrad's hex editor (cool program)
    2. Downloaded the lastest NBKeys program
    3. Force killed Hcontrol.exe with CMD prompt
    4. Changed the hex string to 00 00 00
    5. Saved, rebooted.
    6. Started NBkeys.
    7. CAN'T SYNC... and so on....

    TAKE 2:

    1. Update all my ATK Hotkeys drivers
    2. Doesn't work because HControl.exe is too new
    3. Downloaded your old version of HControl.exe (Huge thanks)
    4. It's already edited so I don't have to bother
    5. Start NBKeys again...
    6. Same problem....


    What am I doing wrong?

    Am I supposed to have HControl.exe's process shut down WHILE I do the NBKeys edit? Because that didn't work either...

    Does it matter what version of NBKeys I use?

    Any answers would be much appreciated, my laptop is 2 days old, and I'm really disappointed I have to do all this so it works properly... :(

    Well it's not exactly an Asus-supported thing. This is a user-created mod so you have to expect some sort of craziness... but we'll get this working.

    I don't think I ever hex edited anything for this. I'm at work right now but I think there's an actual AsusNBKeys.exe process that you have to kill, that's what's stopping the sync. Kill that and then save the changes in the nbkeysctrl program, then launch the AsusNBKeys process again.

    See if that works. The idea is to stop the process, update its parameters when not inuse, and restart it. Follow?

    "I think there's an actual AsusNBKeys.exe process that you have to kill"

    I don't follow, why would you kill a program you are trying to edit the keys with?

    Are you referring to 2 different programs? I'm hoping there is a piece of info I've overlooked... :confused:

    Haha thanks! Glad you got it working!

    For anyone else with this problem: There are two different programs you need to worry about:
    AsusNBkeys.exe (captures key events, runs in background on Windows)
    AsusNBKeysCtrl.exe (Editor for what key events AsusNBkeys captures).

    You must kill the first process to edit it, use task manager.

    Minekey: Open up task manager and kill asusnbkeys.exe before trying to use AsusNBKeysCtrl.exe to make changes. Then start asusNBkeys.exe again after saving your changes, and see if that works.

    I got confused between the two programs. the one ending in Ctrl is NOT the one you use, but the one at the start of this thread. Then use the Hex editor and the instructions on pg 13 to use the program correctly provided you have windows 7 64bit.

    I was unable to end the HControl.exe process so I restarted in Safe Mode and the process didn't start. I was then able to replace the original HControl.exe with the edited version.

    FN+F4 keystroke to CTRL or whatever + F12 (whatever too)...
    I will use that shortcut to winamp and from winamp to dll to make keyboard flashing in music beat ... you know - like ispazz from MBP.

    The short answer is no.

    The long answer is you'll need to follow Predator_MF's instructions if you want to do something like that:
    http://forum.notebookreview.com/asu...display-i-have-found-way-set.html#post3101144

    This lets you customize the OLED screen on the G50v/vt series. There is a GLED.dll and a Winamp plugin that lets you change the state of the touchpad LED. This does not work for the G51 series though, as far as I know.

    Sorry to hear :(

    I haven't heard of anyone able to get manual control over the keyboard lighting on Asus laptops. I'm sure if anyone does find a way, it will be all over these forums though.

    Yep ... @ALLurGroceries
    I now downloaded Ubuntu and Debian systems - i got from different forum (or nb too) linux script.
    I downloaded Cygwin and installed it but script still didn't worked.
    Now i try Ubuntu in VMWare / VirtualBox - if don't work now-i will stop try.

    PS Does somebody know on how rules work KeybVis ?
    I think maybe i can do KeybVis but not "click" capslock/numlock in each frequency but only F3 and F4 - i can click FN and don't release it but how write that script?

    Maybe something like that:
    do
    wscript.sleep 100
    wshshell.sendkeys "{CAPSLOCK}"
    wshshell.sendkeys "{NUMLOCK}"
    wshshell.sendkeys "{SCROLLLOCK}"
    loop

    But no CAPSLOCK etc - only F3 and F4 (in music beat)
    Thanks for answers
    Peace!
