Constany lock ups, BSOD, wont boot u name it

Attachment 158716[/ATTACH]
Computer locks up when it feels like it; usually within minutes; on MS Outlook, IE, Chrone, Mozilla, Outlook, shutting down, right clicking recycle bin... u name it. "not responding". Maybe it will eventually start working, but huge delays...... took to computer repair s hop $170 later, after virus check and "Windows corrupted files" they said it was fixed; two minutes after trying at home it did the same. Took it back.... two weeks later "we cant find any problems". But it still did it; took in monitor, they reloaded windows 7 and MS Office.... nothing.... "no problem" except it doesnt work. in the interim.... original memory replaced; 6gb to 12 (gift), three keyboards and mice tried; didnt install my printer, anything but mouse and keyboard and monitor; i am hooked up to AT&T DSL, was running wireless adapter..... disconnected Utopia wireless and went to ethernet cable.... no change. Locks within minutes,usually when reading email or on net, but has done it randomly when, for example, trying to open task manager...... i can get BSOD, or the screen goes opaque over whatever is showing. of course have the constant busy signal..... did in safe mode w/o networking. Others use my wireless connection no problem. So, i finally took out MOBO bios battery, then did a (second) "clean" windows 7 home install..... nothing. same thing. This "computer repair"place said it must have been a power surge.... yet they couldnt duplicate it at their shop??? I ran Crystaldisk info for HD, always use virus software... Malaware, etc etc. Per this shop they ran CPU HDD yadda yadda tests diagnostics on HDD< MOBO and CPU to no avail; i asked about the DSL,they said no way. I'm about ready to just buy a new MOBO, then new I7 920 or 950 and see what happens. The latest is a mini screen saying "Windows not responding" great. HELP Excuse not posting as per instructions but cmjputer not exactly cooperative and i have no more patience.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.



To ensure minidumps are enabled:

Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
OK your way out.
Reboot if changes have been made.

1-ASACPI.SYS a major cause of BSOD's in the 2005 rev.

The pre 2009 version of this driver is a known BSOD cause.

The 2005 version of this driver is a known BSOD cause.
Please visit this link: ASUS teK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download P7P55D LE
ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download P7P55D LE

Scroll down to the Utilities category, then scroll down to the "ATK0110 driver for WindowsXP/Vista/Windows 7 32&64-bit" (it's about the 12th item down).
Download and install it.
Go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers to check and make sure that the ASACPI.sys file is date stamped from 2009 or 2010 (NOT 2005).

Installed 2009 ASACPI.sys Problem remains

Same problem; "Not Responding" on IE, Outlook, "Send Receive" window, right clicking on file for "properties". Long delays between selecting and having file open or close. Screen goes opaque over whatever is there. Attaching latest dump file.

No problem but if the date is still 6/5 we already have it, and "overwrite" should be unchecked.

has it blue screened since 6/5?
