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.
Im going to try but I really doubt it's because of them since I have had them installed for ages and didn't get crashes before.

Is it possible my GPU died? I have only had it for one year...

The crash did indicate a DirectX or graphics card problem, but that could just be a driver issue. We usually recommend worrying about the ASACPI and MSI Afterburner software first since those are known crash causers and probably what caused your graphics card issue to generate a crash. Your previous crash reports showed those utilities were up to date; the new ones since you apparently re-installed Windows show the drivers are no longer up to date and are just waiting to cause blue screens until they are updated.

You can continue to doubt the help we give. We can always leave you to figure out the problem yourself since you seem to know better than us.

Did I miss something, or did you say the BSODs stop when you stop overlocking? If that's the case, then stop overclocking.

Overclocking is known to cause electronic component degradation over time. Apparently, you have reached that time.

Stop overclocking. Can't get any clearer than that.

Stop overclocking!

Update your drivers, ESPECIALLY, ASCAPI.SYS which is known, very well-known, cause of crashes.

You have gotten good advice on trying to find the source of your crashes.

There is no easy, single, thing to do that solves all crashes, you need to remove the possible causes one at a time. After the crashes have been resolved, you can re-install any apps one at a time and check for stability.

Overclocking does increase the rate of hardware degradation, this can be resolved by replacing hardware or adjusting the settings. You will likely need to reduce the OC.
Just because you had a working OC for three years does not mean it will be stable today.

Update drivers and remove suspect apps, this is free and can be re-installed if they are deemed to not be the cause.
If that doesn't work then you have to adjust settings, next step is to start replacing hardware.

Your issues, if after checking drivers and apps is in fact hardware related could be CPU, CPU integrated memory controller or RAM, failing PSU, etc.
It will take some testing to narrow it down.

That's not what I said. If I didn't value your opinion I wouldn't be posting here for help. I just said I don't think it's a driver thing since I have had the same set for 2 years (and I was right) .

No no, that was unrelated. I had two cases of BSOD.

Guess not, I got it to work.

I don't know what the problem was exactly, but my computer has been running fine since I cleaned the motherboard (was full of dust) and reseated everything. I am sure my CPU and GPU where not overheating but maybe my mother board was, or maybe it was just a loose connection.

Thanks for the help guys.

(I wanted a while to reply so I could be sure the problem was gone)

Yes I wrote them down on a piece of paper and was going to do them one after the other but the first one (clean computer) seems to have fixes it.

Cheers mate.

Ah, I was under the impression from your initial response to that post that you thought it was already clean. Glad you double checked, anyway.

When you are confident the problem is solved, you may mark this thread solved.
