No problem, that gives us time to find anything suspicious in the current logs that may be a causeI really don't know how to reproduce this bug, it comes and goes at random intervals. Usually only 1-2 times every week now.
Well.. I have a feeling it may be Mbam Premium.
I turn on my computer and let it be for about 3 hours, using the internet/talking on skype/discord/playing flash games.
After about that time I use steam and the bug is not reproduced for the remaining time in the day day. Before I shut down after a bug free day I always clean the log so you don't have to deal with the errors it creates from crashing games/forced exits..
I think it may have something to do with Mbam Premium OR steam when it's enabled at startup.
Should I enable one of the two to see if it appears? (I'l still give it some more time with both disabled just encase I'm getting lucky)
Well, it hasn't popped up still. Even with MBAM Premium re-enabled
The following things could possibly be what fixed it.
- New RAM (Upgraded from a slightly faulty one that occasionally crashes)'
- Cleaned logs (There were a LOT of errors before I first cleaned it.)
- Fresh Mbam Install
- Steam no longer at startup
Logs don't cause any problem, except for the growing space they can take which in a matter of time will need to be cleaned up.
If you want you could enable Steam at startup to see if that causes any problems.
axe0 & simrick: Any thoughts on the BIOS update?
see post#s 26-28
Steam has been known to cause issues before, so I'd lay even odds it's steam.
Add the Nvidia graphics to the mix and the odds increase.
I'm fairly sure that there shouldn't be a problem with updating the BIOS.
The tutorials are for UEFI because it is a different motherboard, though the method is the same.
From Post #3.This is a upgrade from windows 8, it also occurred there but it much less frequent. It was a clean upgrade, I installed W8 then upgraded right after.
