    BSOD getting more frequently just doing normal things recent SSD as C


    BSOD getting more frequently just doing normal things. I recently installed
    a Seagate SSHD [Hybrid] and all was well. Got the urge and installed a SSD as C:
    while keeping the Seagate SSHD as my D: First attempt with SSD did not go well
    and lost much on it when it was C:

    Also, I replaced the BIOS battery just before I installed the Samsung SSD.

    I do not have any way to create screen captures of the BIOS. So, I took
    pictures so I could further read the MOBO manual and ensure all was OK.

    I got another SSD [this time a Samsung]. Fresh install of Win 7 took 2 days to get
    all the updates etc. I made sure all the Asus MOBO software was up to date.

    Ended up with excessive beeping and with the help of a really good tech learned
    the the Asus spec'd Marvel driver was not the proper way to implement SATA 3 for
    the C: and D: drives where were plugged into the two SATA 3 ports on the MOBO.

    I reworked all the cabling to not utilize the SATA 3 ports for HDs. I also disabled the
    Marvel driver for the SATA 3. This stopped the very annoying beeping. Asus could
    not provide the necessary support. Kinda hard to believe.

    Now for the last couple of weeks, I keep getting random BSOD. There is NO minidump
    file created even though I have it set correctly to create on.

    Also, since the SSD installation, I notice with Windows Task Manger always running on my
    2nd monitor, that WmiPrvSE.exe takes approx. 10% - 13% with very little being done
    on the PC.

    I have read and tried to understand all the details of the posts that I think pertain
    to my issue(s). I am just over loaded now.

    At approx. 10:08 AM, doing ordinary things I do, I was a few feet away from
    the PC and head a single beep. Next came the Windows sound indicating a
    restart of Windows. I had been doing my AM stuff for about 6 hours at this

    I ran Malware Bytes Anti-Malware. Nothing found. I keep MSC constantly on
    and it self updates. It is run every Sunday PM and it has not found anything

    I use PrivateFirewall and it is also up to date. I run Spybot Search & Destroy 1.622 [I don't like
    the new one]. Every Wed. I manually update it and run it. All OK.

    I run SpyBot and MSC if I don't know the source or reliability of a file. They don't miss much.

    I ran DM Log Collector and will attach the zip it created.

    I looked at all the logs etc. and an just overwhelmed.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated to help me narrow where I should

    Thanks for reading.

    Kindest regards,

    Hi David, welcome to 7 Forums.

    Unfortunately there are no dump files in your logs. Follow this tutorial to ensure Windows is configured to create dump files in the event of BSODs. Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD

    Greetings Boozad,

    I am attaching the setting that was in place per the link you provided. I have
    NEVER had a MiniDump File yet.

    I searched and there is NO Kernel Dump File on the system.

    I changed the settings to create one for the next BSOD when ever that
    will happen.

    Thanks for reading and providing the guidance.

    Kindest regards,
      My Computer
