Well, I don't know what either of them mean. But, I do know that the Brandy may get you a better traffic report from Joan, if you are willing to share.

PEBKAC: Problem Exists Between Keyboard And Chair

A very mean thing to say about a poor old guy who was broiling one minute, then freezing the next... All in the interest of science, I might add.

Well, here is an update from me. I got my replacement board and installed it on Saturday.

Good news is that the speaker interference from the graphics card is gone, so it definitely was the Motherboard. The bad news is I am back to investigating momentary random freezes (what I was doing when the sound started to go weird on the previous board). A lot seem to recover but I have to reboot for some. It can go 1/2 day without a problem then really start acting up.

So there are three types of freezes - one where everything momentarily locks up for about 5 seconds, then continues on. Sometimes I hear a fan ramp up when this happens. The second freeze - this happens followed by the mouse being screwy (pointers are different and wrong, etc), the third is after the momentary freeze, I can move the mouse but the rest of the system is hung (nothing responds to a mouse click, etc), so I have to reboot. This seems to suggest it may be the graphics or HDD or something in the MB. There are no accompanying errors in the system logs that I can use to help pinpoint the source of the problem.

A reminder that what I have changed out is my Motherboard (P7P55D-E Pro -> P8Z68-V Pro/Gen3), memory, and CPU (I5-760 -> i5 2500k). All the rest is hardware I have been using with no issues (note that since I had no problems with the PSU on the P7P55, it should be fine with the P8Z68 since it consumes less power).

Here is what I have tried

1. Removed all but essential hardware and disabled in BIOS non-essential on-board hardware (Bluetooth, eSATA, etc)
2. Tested RAM (memtest86+)
3. Tested CPU and RAM (IBT and prime95)
4. Assuming it is the m4 SSD: Tried msahci instead of iastor. Disabled iastor Link Power Management via registry
5. Ran graphics card at lower clocks
6. Reinstalled Windows from scratch.

I first had run the OS that was installed on the P55 (after I updated the chipset, etc). So thinking this might be a software issue, after following all of the hardware avenues, I started reinstalling windows yesterday afternoon, adding software packages one by one. By 11pm last night I had a significant amount of software installed and time logged without any freezes.

So this morning I added my (probably benign) Spectraview monitor calibration software and had to reboot. When I logged back on - freeze with a reboot required.

So tonight I am going to uninstall a couple of the recent installs. I can also try a different graphics card and finally I could try windows on an HDD rather than the SSD.

Any other ideas?

Well Gene, what can I say? I'm waiting on the UPS truck now. Mine will be here today. I did notice that you said it ran good until you installed Spectraview. I would try to uninstall that and see if that may be the issue. I have also read in the reviews that people had to disable c3 and c6 to stop freezes. Don't know if that is any help. You really know how to encourage people.

Yes, but this is very random. I expect the spectraview and reboot were a coincidence, but I have uninstalled it.

I had C3 and C4 disabled. But I think I have them enabled now, that actually seemed to help but maybe not. I will disable them again.

Well if you are putting an m4 on yours, let me know if you are getting freezes

Maybe I should move this to another thread.
