Question Need a way to run programs from startup at high priority (Driver not working due to not booting software fast enough)


Mar 11, 2015
Hi, I have an Erazer X6805 Gaming laptop and I stupidly deleted the recovery partition at some point and it never ran the same since. the keyboard, Trackpad, and RGB are booted from start-up but before I wiped the recovery partition the PC would do the following - Splash screen - RGB keyboard would light up and do a fade animation - laptop would boot with RGB lights still lit up.

Now it does this -splash screen -RGB fade - Keyboard resets to default -Then driver kicks in and lights come on.

It looks to me that the Control center software that runs in the background and controls the keyboard isn't booting fast enough. is there any way I can set a high priority boot on it from startup. I think the keyboard originally boots from bios then once windows loads it tries to find the driver which causes this delay.

I don't know if any of you have used Steams wallpaper engine. when you boot that up it asks you if you want high priority boot and puts something in the registry so I'm wondering if I can do the same with the driver software.

been trying to fix this or months so if anyone can help that would be great!


Win 10 Master
if you have an ssd, there is another option.

Turn off fast startup - https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/4189-turn-off-fast-startup-windows-10-a.html
then the driver should load properly as it might be its just not written for the new win 10 power schemes. and with an ssd, the speed benefit from using fast startup is tiny

I see it has an ssd - https://www.medion.com/gb/gaming/erazer-laptops/index.html

win 10, the next time you run a version update, will likely recreate that partition. It did on my PC. Its used for running updates.
