I have just built a new machine (Asus MB, Intel Quad Core Processor, 2 GB
800 MHz Ram, NVIDIA 8600 GT 500 MB video, 1 TB SATA HDD) with Vista Ultimate
installed. Everything went OK with the install, except for this: The MB
came with a CD containing various drivers
, launched with an autorun program.
I used the disk to install the drivers. Now, every time I boot the machine
I get a dialog box asking me to insert the (ASUS Utility) disk and press
enter. I can do that and obviously the CD will launch. If I click through,
I get the opening window of the utility program, with the same dialog box
asking me to insert the disk. I can click through once more and the screen
clears. My problem is I can't find what is causing this to happen. The
program is not being launched through the start-up list that you can view
with msconfig, it is not in the start list for any user on the machine, it
is not a scheduled task, and according to a utility program that I bought,
it is not in a "run" or "run once" area in the registry. There doesn't
appear to be anything in the BIOS that would cause this. I can find no
reference to this on the ASUS site (which is horrendous, IMHO) nor through
Google searches of the web or newsgroups. I have cross-posted this to three
different Vista groups (if this violates normal etiquette here, I apologize.
Although this doesn't impact the performance of the machine, it sure is
annoying. TIA for any thoughts out there!
