This is kind of weird.. I just downloaded Asus Update v7.06.02 and upon installing it, I got a warning box that said, "No Asus Motherboard. Installation will be aborted."

I have an A8N-Sli Premium. Am I missing something here?? I am beyond confused.

Which leads to my question.. Shouldn't my motherboard be listed somewhere in the device manager? If so, where?

Ive just replaced mine and it says what model you have on it. Turn off the power and then remove a side on your computer. It should be printed on it somewhere. Becareful not to knock anything like wires etc. Ive never seen anywhere where it tells you what motherboardyou have in device manager or otherwise.

Sorry if I wasn't clear enough.. I know what my mother board I have, but my computer doesn't seem to know. As I said, I downloaded ASUS Update, and it told me I don't have an ASUS motherboard.

I have an A8N-SLI Premium with BIOS 1009. Why would ASUS Update not recognize this?

ASUS Updater has lots of compatibility issues. It has problems with Creative applications, Logitech drivers and so on.

I got it working by changeing
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node
to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\aWow6432Node

Mr. Alpha,

So.. Do you think my Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 4 sound card and Logitech mouse could be at least partly causing this?

Also, I've been having trouble with a game called Keepsake. Could you take a look at this thread and see if any of it could be caused by hardware, relative to this compatibility problem?

Your help is, as always, greatly appreciated.

Possibly. You can, of course, always not use ASUS Update. It isn't something you need on a daily basis.

Also, I've been having trouble with a game called Keepsake. Could you take a look at this thread and see if any of it could be caused by hardware, relative to this compatibility problem?

Doubt it, looks more like a bug in the game, or a corrupt installation. Tried patching or reinstalling?
