    Yup, fo sho and a Dutch on the side. ATK package was likely the good one to rid of or otherwise update, as you have.

    So, installed chipset drivers so it uses NVIDIA storage and installed coprocessor power management SMBus driver for MCP79 (MCP79D): check

    Updated ATK for ASUS: check

    Definitely good to have installed Elantech driver too: check

    For anyone reading this that needs the fix, well, there you have it. Good job!
