Thursday, June 17th 2010, 3:54pm


my system

msi p55 gd-80

i5 750

gtx 275 soc

corsair xms3 1600

silverstone da650

win 7 64bits pro

my aquaero is working fine, but i have two questions i would like to see if there are answers

1 - the aquaero usb conncetion is allways desapearing, so when entering windows i have to reinstall the usb driver so aquasuite can access the aquaero, is there any solution?

2 - i downloaded the latest jalcds file from aquacomputer but i can not work with it, only the configuration tool opens, the jalcds .exe gives allways errors

sorry for my english

any help is welcome

Welcome to the forum :)

For your USB problem there is no typical solution available. That can be everything from driver problems to the BIOS.

jaLCDs is a very old program that gained no further support by the programmer over the last years. We have included a PDF file to get it running on current Windows systems. Maybe you want to run the text through Google. It is written in simple sentences so I think the translation should be acceptable ;)

thanks for your help

i think that the usb problem is due to my overclock, so will make some testing and will let you know more in the near future

if it is not jalcd wich software do you recomend? if any?

and last jalcd works with win 7 64bits?

Samurize was a good thing since we have a plugin which can transfer data from the aquaero to Samurize and vice versa. The bad thing: Samurize does not work with Windows 7 :thumbdown:
Currently there is no alternative available.

jaLCDs is able to work with Windows 7 64 if you follow the steps from the installation guide. The installation is a bit complicated... I had it for testing purposes on my Windows 7 64 system and even after the successful installation I still had some strange problems with that program - it was working but not very stable in my opinion.

No, Samurize work very good on Windows 7.
My plugin aqualite is a perfec exemple " a plugin for aquaero (monitor watercooling) AND core 2 duo temp" in Samurize.com

BUT, the aqua computer SDK for aquaero does not existe for a 64 bits system.

thanks i will try samurize and your plugin aqualite

about the usb issues and my aquaero, i have been trying several configurations and i think it is aquasuite that is messing with my aquaero usb configuration because when i send any comand from aquasuite to my aquaero it works, but when i reboot the aquaero is no longer usb connected

so if possible please let me know this

1 - when i try to save changes made in aquasuite to the aquaero it stays "saving data/please wait" forever am i doing something wrong?

2 - is it possible to reset factory defaults in the aquaero without being throught aquasuite?

3 - is there any way to make aquaero display a text without being throught aquasuite?

4 - win 7 64bits install my aquaero without any issues until i start using aquasuite, is there any other driver i can use or i have to stick with the windows default?

i have aquasuite and aquaero OS and FW all updated to last settings

thanks for your help

1.) Maybe you have activated the USB LCD mode? In this mode the aquaero waits for external data input and will not display its own screens like sensos values etc. until you press a button.

2.) To do a reset: shutdown the PC, press and hold the set button, start the PC and wait for around 2 seconds until the displays shows the text that the eeprom has been reset.

3.) No, not possible.

4.) You don't need any drivers and there also no drivers available. The aquaero is programmed as a HI-Device so it acts like a mouse or keyboard which is recognized by every operating system. The regular communication is done by the software.

hi Shoggy

thanks for your time

yes the aquaero only display its screen after i press a button, but anyway it never displays what i tried to save from aquasuite

thanks for the instructions for a reset

to bad i can not change the text directly in the aquaero as the aquasuite is not working with me

and win 7 64 does install the aquaero the correct way, as a usb hub, a keyboard and general component hid,

i have a last question if it is not to bother much

when i enable a 4ghz overclock (and my system is full stable 24/7) the aquaero never is recognized when entering windows, as i have the 4 pin molex connected to the aquaero, do you think it can be power problem with my internal usb ports?

i will try to walk around i see if i can put it to work

thanks for your help and time

Hi guys !

I am new here and new owner of Aquaero.

I have Asrock P55 board with same issues...but i FOUND the SOLUTION :)

I tried to plug usb into motherboar INTERNAL usb, but always getting some crazy error.
So, i have cut usb cable and make it INTERNAL->EXTERNAL :)

From Aquaero to back of my motherboard. All works fine for few days now.
I did custom cable, but i have found pic on net.

here it is.

Shoggy, i would like to change my Aquaero LCD language, so i have found that i have to change English language in Aquasuite then flash it. But, do i have to unplug all devices from it before flashing ?


Sven - Admin

I would recommend to detach all connected things from the aquaero before you flash. It will also work when everything is connected but by detaching all stuff you can minimize the risk of a bad flash which would mean to send in the device for a repair.

edit: nice website ;)

Didnt work :(

Still Error 10 :(

Ah...flashed bios, tried anything...but still not working full...

+ i have some strange issue with aquaero... after 10 mins, all fans and pump goes 100% then after 3 sec to default settings (like 60%) then again 100%...

i honestly doubt that usb pci card will help.

As i can see, there is NO motherboard that works with aquaero :D

lol, can u fix this with firmware or patch !?

Asus/Asrock, EVGA, MSI....all have same problems.
U cant blame MBs for USB bug.

Sad, it costs 100+€ and not fully operational.

You can be sure it is no firmware issue with the aquaero. We sell thousands of them since several years now.

It is correct that there is a handful of mainboards that are not compatible for an unknown matter since our device is programmed according to all USB standards and has passed several tests. A few of those problematic mainboards worked after (later) BIOS updates. Also some customers mentioned that the aquaero is working when they connect it to the external USB connectors of their board.

don't need "miracle" help, just let me know if there is somtehing i can try to fixed it

1 - my aquaero when lose the usb connection if i load the default settings in bios is recognized again works just fine even with aquasuite

2 - when overclocking i allways lose the usb connection, and can't force it to be reconnect unless i reset aquaero/default settings in bios and lose the overclocking

i5 750


corsair xms3 1600

vore - 1,35

vtt - 1.25

3 - when sending a comand/text from aquasuite to aquaero by usb mode, when i restart the pc the usb is lost and have to reset aquaero/bios defaults

4 - my bios options for usb are just

enable usb

usb legacy

so is there something i can try, or something i must ask to msi support?

thanks again and sorry for the english

Hi all,

Reading about the trouble with Aquaero and experiencing similar issues with the Aquaduct 360 on USB ports of new motherboards I tried some other things.

I now came to the conclusion that as suggested by a previous post a seperate USB card is not the solution for me. PC booted once recognizing the Aquaduct then refused every time after.

What works for me is boot the PC without Aquaduct connected to a USB port. After PC has been fully booted then connect the Aquaduct USB cable.

I also realize that this may be a bit less convenient to Aquaero users.

This again leads me to request Aqua Computer to correct their USB software interface. Having tried a seperate USB PCI card makes the story on motherboards being the reason for these USB errors less believable.

Aqua Computer --- your turn!

LOL... we have not changed anything here. The only new addition in .67 is the poweradjust 2 device window :D
