Good info and help given already.

If you're still getting any freezes, bump your CPU/NB (Integrated Memory Controller) Voltage +0.050v, this should help the RAM run better.

Better if you first give me the current CPU/NB Voltage setting and the DRAM voltage setting from the BIOS.

What BIOS version are you running?
The last three updates are for system stability, this would indicate a possible BIOS issue.

Good, that's the latest BIOS version.

DRAM voltage is 1.80v?

Change the CPU/NB Voltage to 'Manual', this should give you a voltage number, should be 1.10v.
Let us know.

If it is 1.10v, change it to 1.150v, let us know if it still freezes up.

CPU/NB Voltage is on page 2-16 of your motherboard manual.

Asus M4N78 PRO

In your BIOS select the 'AUTO' it will give you an option for 'Manual'.
If it is 1.10v, change it to 1.150v, then select 'Exit and Save Changes'.

The only way to set it is with the + / - keys

So I set it to 1.5000
Is that right

Also I got the same prob when I hot restart in the OS the screen says shitting down them goes black and the pc fans are still running and nothing happens so I'm forced to manual restart

Be careful when entering settings into the BIOS, a mistake can cause your system to crash or damage components.
Especially with Voltage settings, you can burn things up, in this case it would be the CPU.

Yea that would have been bad since i just got it 2 months ago (from a RMA Return)

OK so we have solved 1 of the issues the other issue is the Not Restarting Problem i just get a black screen and my monitor turns of right after the windows Shutting Down Screen its weird it just started happening like 2 weeks ago

The lock screen sees random freezes and a hard reset is required.
Hello, at random times the lock-screen freezes and a hard reset is needed. Keyboard light still toggle yet the SysReq + REISUB key combination does not do anything. Where is some syslog for checking why the kernel dumped and find potential solutions? This is windows 8.1, is this a known bug?

ndis.sys BSOD (timing seems random)
I get the BSOD every couple of weeks. Most of the research I've done indicated that it was probably an out of date driver, but I've updated everything I could (at least everything that I'm aware of). I can't pinpoint any specific activity that causes it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
