Windows 7: BSOD & Freezes

BSOD & Freezes

I have attached my minidump folder in zip format.

At random times I would hear a click stemming from the computer (i suspect HDD) and then computer would freeze for maybe 20-30 seconds and even longer depending on my luck. After the freeze, it would fast-forward to its current screen (for something like World of Warcraft). Occasionally it would crash without with or without hearing any clicks. I seem to notice it happens more frequently while playing WoW. Below are the system specs and its also included in the Dxdiag attachment.

Hi. Please fill in your system specs as it would help the talented members go a long way to helping with your issue. ty

Based on your description, I can suggest that you try running in default high performance mode as your power option. Disabling/closing all unnecessary applications when playing a game is wise.

I assume that this is a Desktop computer (but you know the saying about "ass-u-me") - so, if I'm mistaken, please let me know.

Please update this driver as it's known to cause issues in Windows 7:
Quote:
ASACPI.sys Thu Aug 12 22:52:52 2004
This is a driver available at the Asus website under the Utilities or Other heading for your motherboard. Please get the Windows 7 version of:
AISuite
PCProbe
AINap (or something similar with "nap" in the name)

Then, after installing it, check the date stamp on ASACPI.SYS in the C:\Windows\System32\Drivers directory.

Then please monitor for BSOD's, and post the next one that you get.

You are correct, it is a desktop computer.

However I am not able to see the files you mentioned on their website. If I choose "Others" as my OS (as I don't see Win 7), I see nothing much to download except BIOS updates. Am I supposed to choose Vista 32-bit?

What is the exact model of your motherboard?
There are some mobo's that don't have Win7 drivers - and this makes things a bit dicey for you as you won't be able to use the ATK0100 device (related, I believe, to some of the ACPI functions of your mobo).

just plain ol' "P5LD2", not P5LD2 Deluxe or P5LD2 SE or any other extensions.

Hi there, just wondering if there is a solution and/or possible updates as the BSODs are still occurring.
I was thinking as a worst case scenario that I may need to purchase a new motherboard that supports windows 7?
