Windows 7: Unknown Issue (4 months long) Freezes

26 Oct 2012   #21


And troublesome. Yeap as far as voltage control and variables I've tested most of the safe ones and borderline safe. 1.35 is the current one that does not crash out of games for the cpu.

Will attempt to find it in the bios. I've looked up AI Suite 2 and many were trying to disable it through winstartup.

The 4R7 Inductor seems to have its top a tad chipped off.

Took a closer look at the mobo this time around and noticed the ferite is chipped off.

This is not the mobo but it shows what it roughly looks like.

Is this your board? If that component is chipped you should contact ASUS...they will probably say it's your fault. Also try the seller.

Yeah that's the one. I'm glad there's some progress as of the last 2 days. I won't worry so much since I made logs since day of purchase until now. Also finally managed to get beeps from the mobo. 1 long 3 short. Will try slotting in another 7970 dcu2t in place of the current and redo psu connections.



one ram at a time did not force a bsod so now i've started on using 2 at a time. much testing done and i've seperated 2 pieces that doesn't work well together. here are what they created when they are installed and paired in ch a1 and ch d1. comp is much smoother now albeit the need to reformat as soon as this is settled to clear out everything else and start fresh fully functional and hopefully even smoother.

MANAGED TO GET BSOD! .... can't believe i'm saying this but WOOOHOOOmdmp.rar



Well that was shortlived. Crashed in game but fine otherwise.

I's suggest you to get rid of Rapid storage, and use msahci . How, that will be better guided by Britton30

Signs of driver failing or hardware failing?

Gotten rid of it I'm considering doing a complete wipe. Would that be a good way to troubleshoot?


oh boy. took the whole day to reconfigure everything. removed mobo and the loads and redid wiring too. I found one of the mount / grounding copper-ish golden screws (can't recall what they are called >.<) didn't connect to any screw holes on the mobo so instead of 9 points of contact i had 10 one of which wasn't supposed to be there.

*here's to hoping for results* cheers.

One of the holes in the motherboard could be a guide pin hole. If so make sure the pin is in the hole or it could hit the motherboard and cause problems such as; miss alignment of the I/O panel, short to ground, and twisting of the motherboard.

ah not that one. had a bad experience with making that mistake once before. a costly one >.<. was referring to the stand-offs. one of them wasn't a screw spot so i'm guessing that was probably screwing up the grounding some-what.

it lasted for a good hour of gaming before it froze up again. definitely an improvement.

System freezes after leaving on a long time
