Windows 7: Constany lock ups, BSOD, wont boot u name it

blue screen

Actually i get a Black screen frequently; more typically i get "not responding" from whatever screen/program i am on; follow that by length delay and they it will start responding again. I reloaded Norton the other day and the day later it wouldnt open; i finally uninstalled it and reloaded it. Virtyally anything will cause that delay, no response, lack of response. shutting down, right clicking.... huge delays at best; at worst i lose patience and restart. Have tried in safe modes; same results sooner or later.

black screen more what i see; or get a foggy haze overlaying the screen and the neverending busy signal; Programs wont open, or take forever. I get "Not Responding" adjacent to the program name..... eventually it will start running again; but it could be a while. it does it shutting down, trying to open task center, left click, right click; everywhere and anywhere., but Blue..... notlately.

Norton is often the cause in BSOD's so personally I would remove it but I dont think i t is involved in the "black screen" here.

Your delay however, is almost certainly caused by it.

Delay factors; summation of action to date

I ran the computer without Norton; actually without any virus protection, for 3 days; then i downloaded AVG. At no time did anything get better. I reloaded two days ago. I do intend to get rid of it once subscription runs out in fall. SAO, this computer has had indows 7Home Premium 64 loaded on it once by Cyberpower, once by the suppoded computer repair persons, and a third time by myself. It started with wireless mouse and keyboard and since has had three different sets of USB ones tried. Nothing but those and monitor installed. Memory; started with original 6gb, was gifted with 12gb/. Computer shop said they tried their stick on it also. I have purchased online a driver update program and updated around 78 (i believe it was) drivers. Of course no change. I had previously uploaded latest ASUS for the P6T SE. That sums it up I guess..... other than a variety of diagnostics, r egistry cleaners, misc CNET downloads......
Now what?????? I really appreciate any suggestions; Fatheyr's Day coming and I will spend my way out of this if i have to. I just refuse to give up on what was supposed to be my personally designed, lean mean machine. Snail Mail is quicker than this t hing!

With no new information (DMPS) it is difficult to diagnose. Since you already have reloaded windows a few times I think we can eliminate that, and shold concentrate on the hardware.

I am going to throw the kitchen sink at you to see if something will give us more info.

The results from the DMP files do not give a definitive answer. While we investigate further here are a few things that you can do>

1-Run a system file check to verify and repair you system files. You do this by typing cmd in search, then right click and run as admin. SFC/ SCANNOW

2-Download a 3rd party app called memtestx86, burn it so cd, and run memtest for 5-6 passes.

3-Event viewer
There are several ways to find what the problem is. The best is to go into event viewer (type eventvwr in search). Go to the windows log>application tab.

You want to look for critical errors (they have red in the left column ).

When you find them you want to look for critical errors that say app hang, app crash, or anything that relates to the problem.

When you find them please note the event ID, and the source codes and tell us what they are.

4-Device manager
Please go to start>search>type device manager. (Win 7 and Vista)
Are there any "unknown devices" with yellow triangles on them?
Is you driver there , listed, and working?

If your driver is missing, or there is a yellow triangle on it, you will need to update it.

5-Driver verifier
Beyond that, please run Verifier with these settings:
[quote]
Using Driver Verifier is an iffy proposition. Most times it'll crash and it'll tell you what the driver is. But sometimes it'll crash and won't tell you the driver. Other times it'll crash before you can log in to Windows. If you can't get to Safe Mode, then you'll have to resort to offline editing of the registry to disable Driver Verifier.

So, I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Win7 Startup Repair feature).

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
NOTE: You can use Low Resource Simulation if you'd like. From my limited experimentation it makes the BSOD's come faster.
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out. If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation (an estimate on my part).

Reboot into Windows (after the crash) and turn off Driver Verifier by going back in and selecting "Delete existing settings" on the first page, then locate and zip up the memory dump file and upload it with your next post.

If you can't get into Windows because it crashes too soon, try it in Safe Mode.
If you can't get into Safe Mode, try using System Restore from your installation DVD to set the system back to the previous restore point that you created.

If that doesn't work, post back and we'll have to see about fixing the registry entry off-line:
Code:
Delete these registry keys (works in XP, Vista, Win7):
        HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\VerifyDrivers
        HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\VerifyDriverLevel

latest status; event log pics

many event 41 am sure fromme shutting off computer when it not responding. any app hang is 1002 typically "windows IE stopped interacting with windows". evemt 7000 "computer browser failed to start" "error; service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion" or "due to logon failure" or event 1014 warnings "...timed out after none of the configured DNS servers responded". but screen shots show numbers. anecdotal comment... just trying to do this today i had eventvwr would not open, twice, then i could not close it "cannon close MMC until all diag boxes closed" and there were none open. IE went "not responding with busy signal, then the whige fog over the screen.....
then attempted to open outlook... didnt respond, busy signal for 2-3 secs then nothing..... until about 3 minutes later when it finally opened. in the interim nothing else would open either, althoug i could get the start menu to pop up and items on toolbar.... hope someof this h elps
------------------------------------------------------------
Memtest86 rain 7 passes w/o errors. will look at verifier next.
so att no BSOD per se, just comuter doesnt respond to commands, such as trying to open a program, right clicking on it, Explorer, et al. large lags, locks up, ultimately 90% of the time it will respond. Usual "(fill in blank) Not Responding"

In the newest dmp I noticed asacpi.sys from 2005 it is often a cuase of BSOD's

1-ASACPI.SYS a major cause of BSOD's in the 2005 rev.

The pre 2009 version of this driver is a known BSOD cause.

The 2005 version of this driver is a known BSOD cause.
Please visit this link: ASUS teK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download P7P55D LE
ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download P7P55D LE

Scroll down to the Utilities category, then scroll down to the "ATK0110 driver for WindowsXP/Vista/Windows 7 32&64-bit" (it's about the 12th item down).
Download and install it.
Go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers to check and make sure that the ASACPI.sys file is date stamped from 2009 or 2010 (NOT 2005).
