Random Windows 7 Crashes


Best Answer Solice93 , 12 May 2019 - 11:41 AM

At this point, I'm not sure what to do. I mean I guess that the original problem is resolved, but I have no idea why. Just kinda stopped happening after I replaced the motherboard and power supply.... Go to the full post »

You need to find and delete the following two drivers which are ASUS hardware monitoring software related, the info here may help with finding them.

They kept reinstalling themselves after a restart, so I disabled them first and then uninstalled them. They are gone now, but I keep getting the same error message. And now I get a message (not an error message, just a message) saying "Can't open AsIO.sys !! (2)". The Icon on the taskbar for that message is displaying three blocks, two on the bottom, one on top. The bottom two say F and C and the top one says M. Whatever that icon is for....

Create a new system restore point, find and disable only the following four entries in Autoruns, restart the computer then post back with an update for us.
 
See To Disable or Delete? info at the tutorial here for how to disable the four entries.
