Hoping I can get some help on this issue. It's been frustrating the hell out of me for a couple of weeks.
Ever since installing a new LG DVD and blowing the dust out of the case I have been getting freezes. Screen freezes, no mouse, no keyboard, no noises/change of fan speed. After reboot there is an event ID of 6008 but there are a few additional standard informational events logged after the time indicated in the 6008 event info and before the time the machine locks up.
Asus p7p775-E Motherboard
Intel i7 processor
4 GB Ram
500 GB SSD (previously had 2 mirrored 500GB HDs)
Since installing the DVD I have tried:
Turned off power save options in MS
Updated BIOS – there is one more rev available but the notes for it say it was for a hardware RAID fix
Broken the mirror(MS Software based) and remirrored with one SSD and one HD
Disconnected the DVD drive
Ran Memtest – both RAM sticks and later each stick through 3 passes, no errors
Ran Speedfan – temps in range
Replaced the mirrored drives with single SSD with a new install of Windows
Ran windows on single stick of RAM and then switching to the other stick
Updated NVidia driver
The freezing started taking a day or more to occur, now it can sometimes take ~15 minutes
Amazon just delivered some Arctic Silver and was going to try replacing it in case my dust clearing somehow disturbed the contact to the heat sink. I'll wait for advice before doing this.
Thanks look forward to your advice.
