The systeminfo.txt report is missing from the uploaded reports.
Please open an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt and type (or copy/paste) "systeminfo.exe >%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\systeminfo.txt" (without the quotes) and press Enter. Then navigate to Desktop to retrieve the syteminfo.txt file. If you have difficulties with making this work, please post back. Then zip up the .txt file and upload/attach the .zip file with your next post.
NOTE: Will not work with Windows XP
I can't see how many Windows Update hotfixes installed (I use the systeminfo report for this). Most systems with SP1 have 350-400 or more. Please visit Windows Update and get ALL available updates (it may take several trips to get them all).
The actual number is not important. Rather it's important that you checked manually, installed any available updates, and didn't experience any errors when checking or updating.
C: drive only has less than 2% free space. Windows likes 15% free space in order to perform stuff "behind the scenes" without adversely affecting the system's performance. Please free up 15% on ALL hard drives (you can get away with 10% on larger drives and won't notice a large performance penalty). Low free space can cause BSOD's - but the actual amount depends on the files being used by the system.
As you stated, your TP Link adapter is disabled because you don't use it.
I'd suggest enabling it, uninstalling it's software and physically removing this device from your system if you're not using it.
If you do need to leave it installed, then enable it and update it's drivers - then feel free to disable it again once the drivers are fully updated.
If none of this fixes the problem, wait until the system hangs again.
Then recover from the hang as you usually do, then immediately generate this report:
Please do the following:
- open Event Viewer (run eventvwr.msc from the "Run" dialog)
- expand the Custom Views category (left click on the > next to the words "Custom Views")
- right click on the "Administrative Events" heading
- select "Save all Events in Custom View as..."
- save the file as Admin.evtx
- zip up the file (right click on it, select "Send to", select "Compressed (zipped) folder")
- upload it with your next post (if it's too big, then upload it to a free file-hosting service and post a link here).
FYI - If we're looking for Event ID 41 errors (unexplained shutdowns), there's more info on that here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2028504
While waiting for a reply, please monitor your temps with this free utility:
SpeedFan v. 4.5.1 and later (free from here: http://www.almico.com/sfdownload.php ) can log temperatures in a CSV file:
You may not need to log temps. If uncertain, please ask.
NOTE:You may want to turn logging off when we're done - as I don't know it's impact on performance or on the system.
To make it work (log the temps to a file) you have to do BOTH of the below:
1. Enable logging in general: Configure...Log...check "Enabled" then click on OK to save.
2. Enable logging for specific checks: Configure...Temperatures..left click on each sensor, then click on "Logged" at the bottom of the Window (for our purposes we want them all) then once you've selected "Logged" for all sensors, then click on OK to save.
The log will be located at C:\Program Files (x86)\SpeedFan
Naming: log files are named SFLogYYYYMMDD.csv, where YYYY is the year (four digits), MM is the month (2 digits, zero padded) and DD is the day (2 digits, zero padded). If a file already exists by that name, the file that already exists is renamed according to the following naming scheme: SFLogYYYYMMDD-CCCC.csv, where CCCC is a increasing number. The new file is then created with the standard file name scheme.
Notes: whenever you change the options related with logging, SpeedFan starts a new log file.
