>Still Not Solved Random freezes, sometimes a bluescreen if I wait

RE: Random freezes, sometimes a bluescreen if I wait
http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_S.../#download

The .exe won't work for the bios utility, and I have no idea how to manually update the bios.

When I run bupdater it says it doesn't work with this version of windows. If I do this manually, will the 0804 version for sure not screw my mobod? I know for sure it matches my model number.

I'm going to update bios through the AI suite bios updater.

Any objections? Since It's Asus's tool, if it screws up that means it's their fault if it screws my mobod right?

nothing wrong with using the ai suite bios utility, but the problem is that 9 times out of 10 it doesnt pickup the latest bios update.

the easiest and surest way is to download and unzip the bios file from asus to a usb drive. then reboot with the usb drive in place, and under advanced tab, ez bios flash you can select the drive and file, highlight it and update it. there should be a section in your motherboard manual on how to do it. read it and you will understand what im talking about.

good luck

No objections to the bios updater tool. however after you update it, if it doesn't help the problem, we'll need to look at the BSoDs. To do that, there's a tool I use... simple looking, but effective.

Called "BlueScreenView".

Check the link and give it a look. I've dowloaded from the same site, and mcaffee says it's legit.

Let's hope the BIOS update does it. Smile

I haven't tried the BIOS update yet.

Here's some screens of that BSOD tool:

To rule out a faulty ram module, you might want to make a bootable USB of memtest86 and run it. There s a new download for version 4.2 that will do a USB install.

RE: Random freezes, sometimes a bluescreen if I wait
I'd like someone to look at the BSOD report.

RE: Random freezes, sometimes a bluescreen if I wait
thats a generic bsod code and could be a number of things. that hal.dll is a system32 routine that runs at the kernel level and is the controller between the cpu and the motherboard. its purpose is to handle calls from various hardware, to put it simply.

it could be anything from defective hardware, corrupt or outdated drivers, overclocked cpu/gpu, or corrupt install. if you have diag tools or know how to setup perfmon, you could probably narrow it down. if not, id start with updating drivers, then memtest, then a hard drive test, then i would check the gpu. you can use MSI afterburner to monitor while you are playing video or a game and see what the temps look like. id also monitor with cpu-z or some other utility to monitor the cpu as well.

good luck

Recently I was playing Crysis and this time I got a lockup. Hitting the reset button did nothing.

I just noticed you say it's a system32 routine. I have 64 bit, so is that a revelation or does it not matter?

I think for whatever reason my GPU isn't getting enough power. My GPU isn't overheating as I've checked it with GPUz. I've uninstalled a bunch of programs recently.

I tried to boot with memtest and then it asked me what version of windows I had, shortly after it asked me things I had no idea how to answer so I just switched off.

Memtest86 booted from a USB boots and starts running. It doesn't ask any questions.

Also a 64 bit operating system still has 32 bit things so that it can run 32 bit software.

RE: Random freezes, sometimes a bluescreen if I wait
Don't have a USB.

The thing I greatly suspect is that my video card is not getting enough power, because this freeze only happens whenever I'm playing a game or watching HD video.
How would I troubleshoot for that?
