ASUS Latop freezing problem... Finally time to resolve it.

Q: ASUS Latop freezing problem... Finally time to resolve it.

Hey everyone. I've got a weird problem I am trying to get to the bottom of once and for all. I'm using an ASUS G60JX laptop w/ Windows 7 home premium 64 bit. I've got 6gb of RAM, NVIDIA GTS360M GPU and a intel core i7 processor. (1.something ghz) Basically, the laptop will freeze at weird times. The freeze is a hard freeze, you cant get out of it. There is no blue screen of death to go with it. For example, I could have Chrome open (A few tabs) and then go to start a program like Audacity, and all of a sudden, the computer just freezes. And im forced to do a hard shutdown. I believe it's safe to say this tends to happen when I'm multi-tasking. I dont recall it ever happening when not running multiple things at once. HOWEVER this problem has more to it than just that... I've had this laptop for 1.5 years now. During that time, this problem has come and gone. It has also come in a different form, where while playing any type of flash thing, the computer would freeze BUT, after waiting for a while, it would come back... which was really weird. Everything has been absolutely dandy the past 2-3 months. However, last night I decided to re install my OS, because I wanted to start back from a clean state. Everything went fine, and I've updated my computer completely. BUT now the freezing is back, in the original form of being a hard freeze, forcing me to shut down completely. I know my CPU isn't overheating in this circumstance, although it does run hot at times. any ideas??? thanks!
I've included the results of "mini-toolbox" (i just ran this like 2 minutes ago) I know this program may help someone help me figure this out, so I figured I'd post a log from it.
** this does happen on battery, and on AC power**

Preferred Solution: ASUS Latop freezing problem... Finally time to resolve it.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: ASUS Latop freezing problem... Finally time to resolve it.

Has the laptop ever frozen when you've been running on battery power, or has it always occurred while the adapter was plugged in?

George here Mr Reid, didn"t intend to overstep the rules it will not happen again, I've been dealing with this now for far longer than i"d care to admit and only now am able to take the time to turn the tables on this "virus"/situation. I'll post the requested notes. The history you have is very minimal i'm afraid, this guy"s become sloppy of late which is what I'd hoped He'd do so now Iv'e accumulated a large quantity of evidence on several different hard drives that will hopefully help the good folk's at microsoft close up the sercurity breaches in win7 that allow this sort of thing to happen. I know this transition to a 64bit OS has created some issues but I'm sure it will be worth the extra effort you all are putting in. Thanks again George .

I have a Dell Dimension 8300 running XP (Intel Pentium 4 cpu at 3.00GHz, SP3, 1.5 Gb Ram, 80 Gb hard drive, CD-ROM drive, floppy, NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200) which is over 8 years old. I know the time is approaching to purchase a newer computer, but this one still runs great and does everything we need to do and more. I am one for fixing things (our society is way too disposable) if I can when a problem arises. We received a large number of pictures from a family event from our photographer, many of which were on Dropbox. In downloading Dropbox and when looking at these pictures I noticed that the computer was responding quite slowly. The original 80 Gb hard drive was getting filled, especially from pictures, and had about 10 Gb to spare. For both increased storage needs and because it was older, I thought it best to add a second hard drive. I installed a Western Digital WD2500JB (250 Gb) IDE drive as the primary drive, and kept the original 80 Gb drive as the secondary. In addtion, some dvds with pictures from our photographer (which I first thought were cds) wouldn’t play in the cd rw drive that came with the computer. Imagine a cd drive that wouldn’t play dvds! So I realized it was time to upgrade to a dvd drive. I installed an Asus DRW-24B1ST Sata drive. And while I was at it, I decided to increase the Ram from 1.5 Gb to the maximum 4 Gb (which may have been more than I needed, but the Ram was cheap enough). I installed the memory recommended for the compu... Read more

A:Windows XP random freezing problem--finally solved

Hi, Here is part of the support site information for your computer, I have taken a small excerpt from their Owner's Manual about replacing RAM modules:

(You can go to the site using that link in the webquote, it is clickable, the manual requires a .PDF file viewer such as Adobe Acrobat Reader that you probably have installed on our computers to handle .PDF files. The entire manual can be saved and downloaded to a computer by clicking the icon next to the small printer Icon at top right of the manual page)

Dell maintains extensive support information for their machines so if you need anything else, it is reached by typing in the Dell service Tag #ID found on the label or tag usually on the side, or rear of a Dell tower.

http://www.dell.com/support/content...ort-Knowledgebase/locate-service-tag/Desktops
See "Adding Memory" begins on Page 87 in that manual. Also see page 88 for a diagram that shows how the modules must be situated.....(as you found out)

I recently bought a new ASUS K55N-DS81 laptop and its been working fine since I got it but today (April 21st, 2013) while browsing in firefox the computer froze completely, it was restarted by pressing the button and afterwards only the ASUS splash page would load with the circle loading animation, it would never progress anywhere just constantly spin. It turned on once and asked me to go back to a previous restore point, during which it froze, now it powered on once again and it updated some things while booting, I got the event log from the event viewer so could someone please help me check to see what caused this behavior in the computer. Thanks!

Well ever since Windows installed the new service pack a few days ago, I've been having random times where I'm either watching a video on YouTube, Watching a livestream on Twitch, or sometimes not even doing anything, when my comp would freeze up for a good minute or sometimes 2, and any sound playing would just get stuck and glitch. (my internet would also cut out while its frozen, but come back when it unfreezes) I've been ignoring them, mostly because I had no idea whatsoever what was causing it nor how to fix it. but today when it froze, it BSOD'd on me. I've included the zip that you guys require, so hopefully this'll lead to a solution.

Hello all,
I'm in the research stage of building a computer. I have a few questions that I have not been able to find formerly addressed in this forum.

I'm leaning towards an AMD processor. Would a 64 bit be the way to go? Will my current software work with it? I'd like to be able to upgrade this along the way: add a video card, sound card, TV tuner, the kitchen sink. Obsolete is one thing, being trapped with old technology that can't be upgraded is another thing entirely.

I use the computer mostly for internet and some digital imagery. I don't do any gaming, but my kids do. (translation: in order to keep my kids off my computer, I don't want it souped up for gaming. they can buy their own!!)

I am currently using windows xp-sp2, an upgraded version from win 98. Should I budget for a new xp instead of installing 98, then upgrading? I think I know the answer, but I was just wondering if I could save a few bucks to spend on something a little more fun!!

But my boot time is slow: 3- 5 minutes until all my programs are loaded and until I can start using my computer normally. which I don't find good at all.

I have done every trick you could think of to help fasten my boot time:

- all drivers are up to date (using DRIVER BOOSTER)
- I use 2 cleaning software (CCLEANER & ADVANCED SYSTEM CLEANER FREE)

Microsoft has finally fixed the freezing issue in the Windows 10 Anniversary Update

Last month, we reported that many users were experiencing freezing issues on their PCs after the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. Microsoft later confirmed the issue, stating that it was impacting a "small number" of users, and posted workarounds until a fix could be made available.

The problem usually involved a system freeze after logging in, which rendered the device unresponsive. Microsoft stated that this occurred due to the apps and operating system being installed on separate drives. Now, after nearly one month, the company has announced that it has finally resolved the issue.

While the update on its original Microsoft Answers forum thread isn't quite as extensive, the company has clarified that the Windows Update which was released on August 31 contains a fix for the freezing issue. Microsoft also stated that users who uninstalled the Anniversary Update because of the problem can now revert to it using Windows Update Assistant, or by going to the Windows 10 download page and clicking on "Update Now".

With that being said, the company also mentioned that if you're still experiencing freezing issues even after installing the update, you should try the following methods:

Option 1: If you have a second administrator account on the PC that you can sign into, please do so and install the latest Windows 10 update, released on August 31st, 2016. After installin... Read more

3) Can I run 32 Bit applications on a 64 Bit Operating System?

A:How can I resolve my problem?

64-bit computing on Intel? architecture requires a computer system with a processor, chipset, BIOS, operating system, device drivers and applications enabled for Intel? 64 architecture. Check your motherboard documentation to see if it is 64 bit.
If your computer is 64 bit then you can install a 64 bit version of Windows (XP drivers are harder to find then Vista or 7) 64 bit OS will recognize all the RAM in your computer(up to the motherboard specifications). It will also run most 32 bit applications. There is no upgrade to 64 bit, you have to wipe your drive and install a fresh copy of Windows 64 bit. So backup your data first.

Hey,

Ok here's the situation.
I recently bought a new laptop which is great and all and i also bought a new router.

It connected fine but sometimes I have limited connection. When that happens I have to go upstairs and plug out the power of the modem and router and plug it back in to restart it. This does fix the problem but it's annoying to go upstairs all the time fixing the problem.

It's either the new laptop or the new router's fault but i suspect it's my laptop as it the only laptop in the household using 802.11 (technology draft n) to connect to the wifi system. Also, it seems to happen each time my laptop sleeps. But since I bought the new router and laptop at the same time I have no idea.

Laptop: Dell Studio 1737 Vista Home Premium 64-bit- Intel(R) WiFi Link 5100 AGN
Router: D-link DIR-615 http://www.dlink.com/products/?pid=565
The setting of the router is:

WPA Mode: Auto (WPA or WPA2)
Cipher Mode: AES
Group Key Interval: 3600

Can someone help?
Thank you in advance
DD
 

A:Can someone help me resolve my wifi problem?

Welcome to TSG:
Let's do two basic things first.
Download and install any more current firmware for your router.

Change the wireless channel being used,1/6/11 in US.

I've had problems with the game freezing in 'Broken Sword 4: Angel of Death'. My PC will freeze completely. With other games that require the same system spec. AND better, I dion't have this problem.
The graphics card that I was using when this started happening was a Radeon 9200 series. Had it for 4 years. I can only use AGP cards on my current motherboard so, a few weeks ago, I bought an ATI X1650 Pro 512MB to see if it stopped it happening. It's still happening though and I'm baffled.

First question/s! Is the X1650 a better and, so, more advanced card than the 9200 series? Ought the game to run okay with this?

My system passes http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/referrer/srte... with flying colours, and I now have a new 400W PSU to support my ATI X1650 Pro card. So, unless it's an ATI-compatability issue it's not that. I've downloaded all available patches too, and this definitely looks like a graphics issue with the game. Others (on forums), have reported similar happening (or just stuttering movement issues), but I can find no solutions to my particular problem.

As I say, with the ATI Radeon 9200 card, which was in before the X1650, the same problem existed. It's the reason I decided to get a better card (but was limited in what I could get by the AGP factor).

Then I needed more power for the new card, which I now have (400W). But, taaa-raaaa! Same problem with the game! Graphics seizure! I've turned all setting... Read more

Hi - I have a problem that I wonder if anybody can help me with please!

I am running XP SP2, NOD32 antivirus and PCTools Spyware Doctor. Earlier today (after many pop-ups and redirects) NOD found a few viruses which it deleted. Spyware Doctor found some spyware/adware which it also deleted. Since then I have the following problem:

1. Certain websites work just fine. Certain ones never appear (just constantly trying to load). Certain ones are intermittent. For instance, If I try to google from google toolbar it works initially and then stops on a second or third search until I close IE and restart it. Certain websites will simply not appear at all.

2. Of the websites that I cannot load in my browser I can ping and tracert them from a dos box perfectly. The DNS resolves to an IP and vice versa. If I try and connect by entering their IP in IE it still doesn't work.

3. I have tried flushing the DNS cache. My hosts file is fine. My router is fine (my other machine connected to same router is just perfect). I have deleted temporary internet files and cookies. IE security settings are set to the lowest possible.

4. If I boot my machine in safe mode with networking then everything works just great!

5. I don't have any firewalls enabled.

6. If I disable NOD32, Spyware Doctor and the pop-up blocker from Google toolbar the result is the same.

7. I have tried the winsock fix util and it made no difference.

Hi and Welcome to TSF

Before attacking an adware/spyware problem with hijackthis make sure you have already run ad-aware SE, Spybot Search & Destroy (with updated database) and CWShredder as these programs will clean a lot of the crap out first. All links to programs are in my signature. Ok..on to the log?..

Open My Computer-->View-->FolderOptions-->View Tab-->Advance Advanced settings box, under the "Hidden files" folder, select Show all files-->Apply-->OK Reboot into Safe Mode (hit F8 key until menu shows up). Make sure to close any open browsers. Go into HijackThis->Config->Misc. Tools->Open process manager. Select the following and click Kill process for each one if they are still listed (they shouldn't be but make sure)

C:\WINDOWS\DLLHLP.EXE

Check and fix the following in HijackThis if they still exist (make sure you do not miss an entry)

Desperate to resolve my problem, please help me! DVD-Rom not recognising DVD-RW

Hi every one,

I bought a new DVD sony 202 E camcorder, recorded a DVD-RW disc in it, tried to play it on my laptop which has a DVD-Rom & CD-RW combo drive.

My dvd-rom drive doesnt recognise the dvd-rw inserted in it and it was recognising the dvd-rw as a blank dvd..... and was giving me different options to burn it....

I installed the Power DVD software and tried to play the movie by just clicking at the source as D drive which is the DVD-Rom drive, and the movie was played at its best....

I just wanna see my dvd-rom recognising the dvd-rw disc inserted in it so that i can just copy all these stuff to my hard disk and format the dvd-rw.

please help me dudes...

thanx in advance....

Which Windows to log into? Exactly what does the screen say? We need a listing of both lines for what it is asking. Do you have two operating systems in your computer? Also what were you doing just before you got this dual boot screen? Also some computer info like do you have a recovery disk? Do you have Service Pack 2 installed?

Hi,
 
I'm a first time poster and was recommended this board by someone who said I should be able to get an answer here.
 
So I run a small news website which gets around 1,000 hits a day, it's run on a Drupal server and not through WordPress. Like a lot of sites we have the share buttons at the botom of articles - Twitter/LinkedIn/Facebook etc and the number of shares the article it has got in each corresponding box.
 
However this is where I'm confused and hope someone can help...The shares on some stories show mroe than the actual number of hits. For instance one article after 1 week received around 350 unique hits but overall shares were close to 1,000! Am I being stupid here as I thought a share is when someone clicks on the story then presses the share button which goes onto their preferred social media platform so hits should always be more or exactly the same never less.
 
Would love to get an explanation for this as haven't found an answer yet
 
Thanks in advance

Okay, I had 2 drivers under device manager with yellow ! by them, multimedia audio controller and microsoft kernel wave audio mixer. Got the audio controller installed and its good to go, but i cant find this kernel wave audio mixer anywhere, found 1 on driverguide.com but its for windows ME and i use XP home, so it doesnt work. From what i've read in other post, without this driver you will have "no audio device" listed in "sounds, multimedia and other device" under you control panel, therefore you will have no sound. Can someone please help me find this driver. BTW i dont have a restore cd =( Oh, and when i try to reinstall the driver it gives me the message "An error occured during this installation of this device, The I/O operation had been aborted due to a thread exit or application request" ????
 

A:Finally getting somewhere with this sound problem

You'll need to identify your sound card or chip correctly and install the appropriate driver and then the error should go away. I would advices staying away from driverguide.com as you never know what your are gettting from there.
