    Disable BTTray.exe from your task manger before you start gaming. This will disable the on screen caps notification. If you want to permenantly disable it, simply uncheck Bluetooth Software from your startup programs in msconfig.

    Hello,

    I recently purchased a ul80-vt and I cam across this forum about asus bloatware. I removed the ATKOSD2 utility. For volume and brightness I see that the former graphics have been replaced by basic graphics in the corner of the screen. However, when I use the button to change between the ATI graphics card and the integrated card I only get a grey box in the corner so I can't see what setting I am on.

    Has anybody else had this issue? Am I stuck with reinstalling ATKOSD2 and just putting up with the graphical display?

    Thanks in advance.

    Perhaps they didn't implement the new GPU-switching icons, since at the time when they were still using only the "2D" icons, there were no switchable-GPU models. In which case you would need to reinstall or determine which GPU is active by other means.

    Hey, is it possible to use the FancyStart, ControlDeck or FastBoot utilities in my g50vt even though those utilities didn't come with the driver & utility disc? I just got w7 and the FastBoot utility would be really nice to have, but I couldn't find it anywhere for g50vt.

    maybe this needs a bump for updates for 2010 systems.

    You can always try it. The worst that can happen is that it won't run. I'd probably backup all your important files just in case these programs messes up your system's registries.

    It's been updated already, but if anyone sees anything that's missing, please feel free to post them :)
