Asacpi.sys

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

Please visit this link: Asus tek 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 (notbefore).

Nope. ASACPI.SYS is still dated 2005 in the newest crash, See pic

i don't know if i should open a new thread.
so the computer was running fine for the past week i reinstalled windows at least 3 times that seemed to fix it. i installed driver updates and no windows updates i installed MS security essentials and steam. at random times firefox would crash for no reason. Then today i finally got a BSOD and a few minutes the computer completely froze and i had to reset it.
i tried to run the "
perfmon /report" but couldn't it kept giving me some timeout error. so im just attaching the Windows_NT6_BSOD_jcgriff2 folder
i also ran memtest for 11hours and got no errors

In most recent DMP Asacpi.sys is fixed and this crash was related to dxgmms1.sys
