, a few things you should try:
1 ) I would start by running Windows Check Disk
on your system drive:
- Double click on the "(My) Computer" icon on your desktop or in your Start Menu.
- Right click on the drive to test and click "Properties."
- Select "Tools" tab and under "Error checking" click "Check now."
- Make sure that only the follow box is checked.
- Automatically fix file system errors.
- Click "Start."
- Click "Schedule disk check" then reboot your computer.
2 ) Attempt to test memory again:
You reported that the memory test froze. It would be nice to be able to check the memory. I like MemTest86+
run from a bootable CD. I would start by testing the memory in pairs: Dimm_A2 and Dimm_B2. Remove chips in Dimm_A1 and Dimm_B1. Run the computer for a while with just two memory modules, then run MemTest86+; ideally over night (12 hours
) or until an error is reported. If the computer freezes, you can also run with just one memory module in Dimm_A2. If you test one module at a time, the longer the better, but at least 8-10 full passes per module for "minimal confidence."
3 ) Go to this Asus site
and verify that this is your motherboard. There are three newer BIOS updates that report "Improved system stability" and a chipset driver dated 01/05/2012. Update all drivers. Make sure you fully understand how to update the Bios before attempting (consult your motherboard manual for a how-to).
4 ) Graphics
Radeon X1950 Series
DirectX Support: 9.0cAMD Catalyst™ Display Driver
From above website:Note: "AMD's DirectX 9 ATI Radeon graphics accelerators are not officially supported under Windows 7.
If the user chooses to, they can install the ATI Catalyst Windows Vista graphics driver under Windows 7. Please be aware that none of the new Windows 7 graphics driver (WDDM 1.1) features are supported (as the Windows Vista level graphics driver is limited to WDDM 1.0 level support). "
5 ) Run OCZ Toolbox
, if it is available, to check for a firmware update for your SSD drives. If there is an update, read so you understand all precautions, benefits, and risks involved before attempting an update.
