Ok 1st of all i am sorry that i can't post what i recieved on the BSOD error. So this is my story. I had my computer on, and i went to sleep, i woke up and looked at my monitor that i had a BSOD error. As i was about to write down the problem, the computer restarted itself. So from there on i didn't know what to do. My problem was that When i restarted my computer again, it said "Please select a proper boot device and press any key to get into windows" I kept restarting nothing worked. So i booted windows with SAFEMODE, and restarted once again to get into bios and Changed my 1ST boot device to CDROM. The problem is now that my computer has gotten extremely slow as if some programs take forever to load. And the main thing is that my computer takes about 5minutes to boot. The Windows screen that has the Windows Logo just stays there for about 7 minutes and takes forever to boot. Then when i get into my computer, my programs, my games, and everything else loads slow. Another thing is that I try to watch video files, they skip every second, and the audio keeps playing, it doesn't fast forward it just glitches/skips. Also my mouse ---> if i try to move it around, it glitches and freezes for a split second on my desktop or if i am browsing net that happens. If i completely shake the mouse constantly or move it on my screen it just skips. I don't understand what the problem is...i wish i had time to jot down the problem the BSOD gave me, but if u can please please please help me that would be great.

3 problems i am getting.

Booting takes forever.
Video Files are constantly skipping.
Also mouse is glitched and skips too.

Right click My Computer then select Properties. Under the Hardware tab click the Device Manager button. See if there are any warning signs and list them if there is. This could be graphics or memory related.

i see the Yellow Warnings now. They are on "Other Devices" One is on ... Raid Controller and other is on Unknown device. I double click raid controller and it says "The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28) To reinstall the drivers for this device, click Reinstall Driver. And when i click on Unknown device it says the same thing. I tried to update Drivers, it doesn't let me. It says "Cannot install this hardware"

Is your computer custom built or an OEM such as a Dell, HP/Compaq or etc.? If OEM what brand and model? If custom built list the hardware.

It may help to download and install Everest. With it opened click on the + next to Computer at the left then click on Summary. Right click anywhere in the right window and click Copy All. Paste that into your next reply.

The RAID driver issue is for your SATA drive. You need to install the SATA/RAID drivers for your setup. I would also check the SATA cable. Some are cheaply built and don't plug in firmly.

Drivers for your motherboard would be on the motherboard CD that came with it or from the manufacturers site (ASUS support site sucks).

Here's what I found for your motherboard.

Ok i didn't know how to install the drivers from the links, so i just installed them from my original BIOS cd. Now i don't see those Yellow warning signs on anything. I checked that the SCI/RAID drivers are installed. But the problem still exists. My computer boots very slow, still choppy video files, and cpu usage is very high.
