Your modem drivers are out of date as well
The Site only has Drivers up to WinXP, nothing for Windows 7

Now your CD/DVD drive seems to be erroring. You are getting error 39 in Device Manager - 'Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing'.
I have updated the Controllers through Microsoft Site, and all now appears fine.

Quote:
Just to make sure, run a system files check. Open an elevated command prompt and enter sfc /scannow.
Done, no issues highlighted.

Quote:
Your USB hard drive (Seagate FreeAgent) seems to be having trouble.
I have now done an Uninstall / Reinstall of the appropriate Software

Quote:
Your TV Tuner drivers are out of date.
I no longer use TV Tuner (since OS Media Centre). Can I just delete these (or do I need a specific program to uninstall them)?

JC,

System files show -
Code:
Original Install Date:     15/12/2009, 12:00:14
The earliest timestamp on the 15 mini kernel memory dumps from the various attachments = 28 September 2010. Were there any BSODs or other system trouble during the preceeding 9.5 months?
Nothing at all like this through Media Centre, then XP Pro, and now 7 Ultimate.

Quote:
BIOS is a likely problem here
I had a look at the ASUS Updater, but it mentions I need a Floppy DD (which my System doesn't have). Is there another option?

Quote:
You have two identical 200 GB internal HDDs - ST3200827AS ATA Device
- Run chkdsk /r on all drives
- Run HDD Diagnostics on both
Done, with no issues highlighted (although this was after I updated the Controllers through the Microsoft Support site).

Given issues with cdrom.sys , I would remove this 2002 CD burning app -
Code:
aspi32.sys   Wed Jul 17 12:05:08 2002 (3D3595B4)
I cannot find this Software at all (I use IMGBurn now anyways). How can I delete or Uninstall this Driver?

Quote:
Done, and all shows as Compatible, with no other issues highlighted.

I have attached a more recent Report, given the Updates / Changes I've made (from replies from both Jon & yourself).

Much obliged for your assistance.

Has the BIOS issue been addressed yet?

Some systems simply cannot run Windows 7 and maintain stability.

Per Microsoft -

JC,

How do I update BIOS without a Floppy DD?

I've been running Windows 7 for well over a year. The issues have only started within the last Month.

A new BSOD message came up today:-
'The Driver is mismanaging PTEs'....

2005 is the most recent P5GD1 BIOS that I find at Asus - ASUSTeK Computer Inc.-Support- download_item_P5GD1

ASUSTeK Computer Inc.-Support

I am not saying that Windows 7 will not run on this system; just that system stability under Windows 7 cannot be maintained, especially with SP1 arriving in the near future; then SP2, etc...

JC,

Yep, appears there is no more up-to-date BIOS for my particular PC.

As far as I can tell, everything else (Drivers wise) has been updated.

Still no reply as to how best to get rid of the aspi32 & Hauppage Drivers...

If anything else springs to mind, I'd be obliged.

Stephen... If all else fails, rename the drivers with a .bak extension ie: hcw88aud.bak ... that way they will not load on boot...

Tews, I've done that... will see how the old girl handles now.
Other than that, guess I better start saving for a new System.

I'd, once again, like to thank all who posted replies. If I haven't given anyone the proper Reputation, let me know.
