I don't know about the BSOD time, but I would recommend updating all drivers.

That includes, but not limited to:

Videocard (Maybe the pc doesn't freeze, but the videocard)
Motherboard (Maybe the motherboard has a bug in it's BIOS or software that creates a halt)
Audio (you had sound problems with that repeatable sound)

Also, what programs do you use when the crash occures, maybe there is a newer version for those programs :whistling:.

Oh yeah, that videocard, maybe your videocard isn't really stable in your motherboard, if you can open the case (mind the warranties), see if you can push the card in it's slot a bit more. DON'T use force. Just a bit force can't hurt the hardware. (It's build to take a hit or two).

You can update your BIOS with the ASUS Probe software you got with your cd of the motherboard. You can update your BIOS with that program. Good luck with getting through the waiting tables of the downloader. It's a pain and I can know it. I waited nearly 2 days for downloading version 10 to enable DualCore.

Good luck.

TO stop the auto restart

Right click MY COMPUTER, choose PROPERTIES, choose ADVANCED, choose the SETTINGS button in the Startup And RECOVERY section, and uncheck AUTOMATICALLY RESTART

Now reboot. This will result in the BSOD error...report the STOP ERROR and any parameters.


NOTE: Not all motherboards update their bios via asusprobe.

Beginning dump of physical memory.

there is often something below that, for instance, a sentence about a given file

Generally, the cause for this is hardware

that still says bios update

You did or did not do that?

We've been through this

I cannot make it any simpler than the directions I already pointed to

Insert a floppy disk in your floppy drive
Open MY COMPUTER
Right click on the floppy drive and choose format
--check create an msdos startup disk
click start


when completed,
copy afudos.exe to the disk
copy k8ne1011.ami to the disk

restart the pc with the floppy disk, you will get to a dos prompt

a:\>

type
afudos.exe k8ne1011.ami
<enter>
