BaseBoardManufacturer = ASUSTeK Computer INC.
BaseBoardProduct = P8Z68-V PRO
And for desktop, hibernate is not a must. Rather it is unneeded. Disable hibernate.
Hibernate - Enable or Disable

Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known BSOD causer. Uninstall Daemon Tools at first. Then download SPTD standalone installer from, and execute the downloaded file as guided below :
  • Double click to open it.
  • Click this button only:
  • If it is grayed out, as in the picture, there is no more SPTD in your system, and you just close the window.
Free up the startup.
  1. Click on the Start button
  2. Type “msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
  3. Select the “Startup” tab.
  4. Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
  5. Apply > OK
  6. Accept then restart.
Let us know the results.

Have yet to notice any pattern to recent BSOD occurrences. This is a different computer than my previous post 500+ days ago, so I hope I am justified to start a new thread. I glanced in the Eventsys.txt file and see a lot of references to Carbonite.
