Windows 7: BSOD on several occasions within the past week (report included).

CPU temperature is pretty high for only being in the BIOS, when was the last time the system was cleaned of dust?

I agree with Jack, I did notice it but already forgot it when I replied

Mismatched ram and overheating is not conducive to a proper operating computer system.

Those are basic things that, in my opinion should be taken care of first.

Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 32-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1
 
 

I removed the two DDR-2 512 MB bars, and cleaned the CPU, the GPU, and the case thoroughly with compressed air and the vacuum cleaner, (I do this every two months on a regular basis). Now, the BIOS indicates 60C down from 71C and the SIV32 analysis indicates around 40C.

The event viewer Administrative Events is empty. I only get a single message at boot time, that the WiFi completed the connection.

axe0, is there a place where I can download free the updated BIOS firmware? I would much appreciate it.

My apologies as I avoided to click on the "Access Denied" link until I saw that this appeared in previous posts of this thread.

Unfortunately, the latest BIOS update I found for Windows 7 Pro 32bit for the PB5-E is my installed 2009 version, and PB5-E Plus version is even earlier (2008) I repeated the same searches for the 64bit version, (just in case), so I must be doing something wrong. But I did download the chipset driver which were never updated since the the computer was purchased in February 2007.

Today the computer froze again completely but without BSOD and DMP file. While reading the ASUS FAQ about some possible crash problems related to the mouse, I remembered installing the Logitech SmoothScroll software because I had problems of scrolling, and the crashes began to occur. Uninstalled the software and replaced the drained batteries (after measuring with a voltmeter), and now will wait to see if this solves the problem.

I also decided to close this thread with the unresolved BIOS CPU temperature of about 65C (after cleaning), and the BIOS firmware upgrade. My sincere thanks for all the help and suggestions. I learned a lot and if it crashes with a BSOD again, I will repost the issue.
