Please follow the http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html to provide more information by providing your full crash reports, system logs, and system information.

Also, fill out your system specs by following System Info - See Your System Specs. Fill out your system specs in your profile, not in a post in this thread.


Is your system pre-manufactured or custom built? Is it under warranty?
I have updated my profile.

The problem went away if I removed my overclocked, but this computer has been overclocked (slightely) for 3 years and I had ran stability testing for 12 hours back then to check it. How is it possible that it isn't stable now? Did something go out?

My first thought would be you have dust buildup, so the system is overheating due to the overclock. To remove dust, follow the subsequent general procedure. If you have a desktop bought from Dell, HP, Sony, Lenovo, etc. make sure removing the desktop casing will not void your warranty first. Call the company if you are still under warranty and ask if it is okay to remove the casing and blow dust out. The procedure described is fine for laptops; just make sure no stickers are on panels saying if you remove the panel it will void the warranty.
  1. Shut down and turn off your computer.
  2. Unplug all power supplies to the computer (AC Power then battery for laptops, AC power for desktops)
  3. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds to close the circuit and ensure all power drains from components.
  4. Remove the casing for a desktop, or remove any screwed on panels and disc drives for laptops.
  5. Blow out the dust inside by using a can of compressed air or a low pressure compressor. You will want to put the computer on a desk or table so you can maintain the can in an upright position if using a can of air. Blow into all crevices on the motherboard, heat sinks, cards, modules, etc. for a desktop. Blow into vents, opened panels, disc drive areas, USB ports, and the keyboard if it is a laptop. You may also want to blow inside the disc drive by replacing the drive to the laptop, starting the computer, opening the drive, and then turning off the computer and removing all power as described above including the 30 second power button step. For a desktop, you may also want to blow inside the disc drive by starting the computer, opening the drive, and then turning off the computer and removing all power as described above including the 30 second power button step.
  6. Replace casing for the desktop. Replace panels and disc drive (if you have not already done so) for the laptop.
  7. Plug power supplies in. AC adapter for the desktop. Battery and then AC Adapter for the laptop.
  8. Start the computer and see if performance is better.

The computer is built by me and I have already tried cleaning it. I monitor temps and they arent even getting near high ranges.

I even tried changing the ram slots.

This is all very comfusing, I don't understand why it works when I remove the overclock when it had been working for 3 years.

Keep in mind that overclocking increases instability, so it may just be magnifying the true problem. Also keep in mind that overclocking reduces hardware lifetime, so it can cause hardware to start to fail over time. Both of these are possible reasons for your crashes, and we need to narrow down which is the case.

Your Verifier enabled crashes indicate "probably Pilote USB audio (WDM); Creative wireless headset; Hs-1200 Digital Wireless Headset". The driver is out of date. Please update the driver by going to your manufacturer's website. If there are not more up to date drivers, you may try: Drivers - Install Vista Drivers on Windows 7. If that still does not work, consider replacing the device with a Windows 7 compatible headset.

Hi, thanks for taking the time to reply.

I am fully aware of the dangers of overclock and have no problem replacing hardware after 3 years, just want to make sure it's the ram first.

As for the driver verifier, I explained on the first page all the steps I took, and which drivers where causing the problem. I removed them and it no longer crashes. The Headset driver is the latest one available, and it is for Windows 7:

"This download is a driver providing Microsoft® Windows® 7, Windows Vista® and Windows XP support for certain Creative gaming headsets. It includes Creative Audio Console for managing audio settings. For more details, read the rest of this web release note."

I have had this headset for a long time, long before the crashes.

I have reset my overclock and am increasing it little by little. I seem to have stabilized my system by reducing voltages and the overclock.

My idea is that the ram lost its overclocking potential over the years, is this even possible?

Should I replace it?

Just a small update:

Just rendered a movie and it didn't crash. Going to run Prime95 all night to see if it stable now.

  • It is possible the RAM lost its ability to support the overclock.
  • It is also possible the CPU lost its ability to support the RAM for the RAM to support the overclock.
  • It is also possible that the motherboard lost its ability to handle the voltage for the RAM and CPU to support the overclock.
  • It is also possible that the PSU is no longer able to provide the power necessary to allow the overclock to run reliably.
  • It could also be you have software installed that is interfering with the overclock or a driver conflict that is interfering.
  • Your Windows installation could also be corrupt either at the data level or the registry level.

It is impossible to know which of the above scenarios provide the true cause without doing further troubleshooting.

Hi, Thanks for taking the time to reply.

I have rendered 5 videos with no memory BSOD, but I still get them when playing games pointing to Direct X kernel. I attached the minidump. Is it because of damaged hardware? It just started recently (past 20 days). My computer has been formatted yesterday.

Bump, just ran a stress test for my GPU and it didn't crash. What could these crashes mean?

Remove MSI Afterburner or update it. The 2005 version has known issues with Windows 7. See if that helps.


Older versions of ASACPI.SYS are a known BSOD problem on Windows 7. Update the driver by:
  1. Going to the Asus motherboard support site
    When you reach the website:
  2. Scroll down the page and click Utilities
  3. Hold Ctrl and press f (ctrl+f) to enter the browser's find feature
  4. Search for "ATK0110 driver for WindowsXP/Vista/Win7 32&64-bit" (without quotes)
  5. Download and install the driver.
  6. After installation is complete, verify that it installed correctly.
    • Click Start Menu
    • Click My Computer
    • Go to C:\WIndows\System32\drivers\
    • Verify that the ASACPI.SYS file is dated 2009 or newer (2010,etc.)

Thanks to JMH and zigzag3143 for the above information.


Also, remove any USB charger accelerator software such as those for Apple products. They place the USB ports in a power state that can cause crashes with other devices.
