I just installed Win7 on my laptop, only to find that the hotkeys don't work. I'm really a noob when it comes to these things so I have no idea what to do. I've read in a few different places that I need to upgrade my Bios before I do anything, so I went to the Asus downloads site and downloaded the AsusUpgrade utility. After I had installed the newest Bios, I restarted my computer. On startup, it asked me something like if I wanted to configure the Bios or use default values or something, so I went with the latter because I didn't know which one to choose. Then the Windows 7 loading bar came up, followed by a BSOD which lasted for about half a second, and then rebooted. It does this every time.

After that I would still need assistance on getting the hotkeys to work.

Can anyone help me? I really have no clue what to do. I'm reinstalling Win7 right now because I could find no way to fix it the BSOD-reboot problem, and I've tried everything. I;m sure I just upgraded the BIOS incorrectly. If anyone could so much as point me in the right direction I would be grateful.

When you finish your Win 7 Reinstall, goto http://usa.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=BtksJTDENqfsnuyf and click on the download tab.  Select Win 7 and use all the drivers there.  Although it is the 1005ha, the 1005hab will work properly with these drivers.

As far as the BSOD.... I am not really sure what is causing that issue.  That very well may be fixed with your re-install.

Let us know.
Best Regards,
DrZ

Thanks for your prompt reply, DrZ. It's funny, because the last time I went through those steps I would continuously get error messages on startup, but it didn't do that this time. Needless to say it worked perfectly.

Now I just have to figure out what the deal with the BIOS is...

Most likely you need to change (inside the BIOS) HDD-controller from IDE to AHCI or from AHCI to IDE, depending on the current setting.
