I know it could be, but that doesn't really sit well with me. It just doesn't make sense.

Unless this is about 1000x worse than I originally thought and there is something in the BIOS or hardware, in which case I won't be very happy...

Unfortunately I messed with the BIOS recently and updated it, so I can't pinpoint it yet.

Tomorrow will hopefully yield some answers. The plan is to nuke the hard drives (zero them) and then clean install. Hopefully there isn't a virus in my backup drive, though it should at least be clear if that's the case.

Thank you for all your help mate.

Well the reinstall went fine.

It had no effect on the computer not powering off, and the few other ideas I found online also had no effect (list below). I haven't seen the clicking issue again, though I haven't had the PC on long enough to find out.

At the moment I'm these issues:
-Not powering off
-Audio Card driver won't install (doesn't find card even though it's there and was working before I reinstalled)
-MBR randomly corrupts

For powering off I have tried:
-Checking device manager to see if any devices are not allowed to be powered off (all are)
-Updating Video Card driver to the most recent beta
This issue seems to be common with ASUS motherboards. Some people think it is the graphics drivers (which has no fix atm), other people get the issue fixed by checking power off in device manager. Neither have worked for me.
The odd thing about this is that when I RESTART the computer, the power shuts off (fans, lights, pump) and then back on after a few seconds (it has always done that for restarts).

Audio Card:
No idea what to do here and google wasn't helpful

MBR Corruption:
This requires a little bit of explanation. The clean install went fine, everything was working hunky dory. I shut down and plugged in my remaining 4 drives and started back up. Set the order correctly in BIOS, and when I went to start Windows it crashed with a x7B stop code and a warning about a virus. When I unplugged my second SSD (my older one), it booted without a hitch. At this point I booted into windows repair tools and used diskpart's clean all command to wipe the drive. Rebooting caused an MBR error, which I assumed was because the old SSD used to be my boot driver, so I made sure it was clean and used the repair tool again to fix the MBR. Computer booted up no problem at this point, so I assumed the issue was fixed. A few restarts later, the MBR error popped up again, but once I restarted it booted into Windows like nothing happened.

Honestly at this point it feels like my mobo is dying, but I would really like to confirm that before I replace it. The other problem is that none of this happened until just very recently. Shortly after flashing the BIOS, though perhaps that isn't related.

I have no idea what the hell is going on with this thing anymore...

Look just a suggestion done any rootkit scans? Try the TDSS http://support.kaspersky.com/viruses/solutions?qid=208280684

There are some others but this is worth a try even if it just eliminates this venue.

Probably done these but hey worth another try

I actually haven't done much besides scan with MSE. I'll run MBAM and superantispyware though. How should I check for rootkits and whatnot? I have very little experience with viruses.

I also did do a clean install, though did not wipe my backup drive.

EDIT: Quick scans with superantispyware and malwarebytes turned up nothing but a few tracking cookies. I will run a deeper scan in the morning. I still think that the shutdown issue is a BIOS problem, but I just can't tell. The other two, I have no idea.

The TDSS tool is pretty simple. Nothing to install, just download, run and follow the prompts.

Malwarebytes has a new root kit detection tool. Again, nothing to install, just download the zipped folder and run it. You can open your current copy of Malwarebytes and look on the tab named More Tools. Look for the link to the Anti-Rootkit tool.

As far as you seeing complete sentences that you had typed a while back, that sounds like something got sent to the clipboard - then got pasted back in. You also mentioned that this issue happens after the computer has been on a while. Maybe you can get it to repeat if you heat up the CPU and motherboard by using some stress test.

This one might do it Download | wPrime
Or there are tons of other ones to pick from.

Alright, running the MBAM anti-rootkit now.

That random typing thing... the thing is that no only did I not copy that text, but when it typed it back, it literally typed it exactly the same way I did. It would type it out as if I was right there typing it. It would take just as long as I would to type that same thing, and it would repeat my mistakes and errors in exactly the same way and speed that I did. It's as if someone recorded it and played it back, just like a macro.

Well damn... I do have a keyboard with macro functionality... I know I didn't accidentally record anything (actually recording a macro is a pain and is pretty obvious), but perhaps it somehow recorded it anyways...

Oh and in the time it took me to write this, the rootkit tool says it didn't find anything.
EDIT: Forgot to add that I can't find a (safe) download link to the TDSS tool, and the kaspersky website brings up a 502 error.

Try this direct link to Kaspersky's tdsskiller exe:
http://media.kaspersky.com/utilities...tdsskiller.exe
It took a long time for it to offer me the download.

Yep did me too and it came up with that I don't know why though it has always loaded the TDSS before.


Lord bob let us know how you go with that MBAR thing too it was in beta the last time I checked so haven't tried it yet.
There are some more rather more complicated scanners that one could try but they take a bit of decyphering is the only problem

Hah just found out it was a server error now that is a think with Kaspersdky from time to tiem I have run into that before. (My security is KIS 2013)
