Hi, i try install Windows 7. Everythings great! Eee PC works smoothly and nice, but i cant install ACPI driver. Everytime, install turns on, but for a while automaticaly "roll back" changes and driver not install sad.

I dont know, what to do. Windows 7 is better than XP. But without main ACPI... i will must back on Windows XP.

Can anyone help me?

I just looked on the Asus support CD for 1101HA and couldn't find this "ATK driver" - which folder is it under and/or how to install it under Win7? (the installers under this ACPI folder also don't work, exactly as Fiola mentioned.)
thanks

have the same problem when I started to use bios version 0303 ( from 208 to 303 update and a reinstall of win7 ).. the service and icon will appear right, but ACPI driver can not be recognized anymore by win7..

I did also try with a third party ACPI on ( gekko.me website ) ( also reinstall a win7 to be sure )

I wish I could go back and use 208 bios version, something triggered something in there..

EDIT: bios 0309 didn't change anything, same issue for win7.
in winXP all  works fine.. cpu can go to 1.7Ghz down to 600Mhz ( battery save )

EDIT2: noticed I lost a left speaker/sound after new bios flash.. same in win7 & XP
Anyone same problem?

Hi,

I have the same problem with Windows 7, the ACPI driver is missing and when I install the ACPI driver from the CD, the install process works fine but after that I have a message box like this :

---------------------------
Asus ACPI Service
---------------------------
Pilote Asus ACPI missing, Please install Asus ACPI Driver.
---------------------------
OK  
---------------------------

Bios version  : 0205
OS Version : Windows 7 Ultimate RTM

I finally manage to install the driver, this is pretty simple actually, just go to the device manager, right click on the missing driver, choose update driver and in the wizard choose "automatically update the driver" and windows update will install it :)

yes kaaruto, you have bios 0205.. 0208 is ok, I had an easy setup there also for the ACPI
so advice to anyone else.. don't go to 0303 or 0309.. or you can't use the ACPI driver anymore..

if anyone did test this.. please confirm..

I try to rollback my bios to 0208.. wish to have that extra boost of cpu again otherwise Skype go into a crazy crash..

Damn, I got my 1101ha and went straight to 0303 without even testing existing 0208!! I'm also going to try to go back to 0208. Hope it works!
I also upgraded to 2GB RAM so not sure if that will have effect.


!!!!!!! SOLUTION !!!!!!!
Update (a few hours later)
Following this thread: http://forum.eeeuser.com/viewtopic.php?id=3485 I created a bootable USB drive and put my own 1101ha 0208 bios, flashed under DOS with AFUDOS2 (included in the download) and all of a sudden the ACPI (onscreen display plus hotkeys) works!!

Yay!  Will not be upgrading BIOS for a while!!  With any luck, Win7 will work just like before on 0303.
