Random Reboots - Cannot reproduce issue on command

    How has the machine been behaving with Cisco removed, as test?

    If there are any further crashes without it, run the tool again and attach as done before.

    Also please include a screenshot of 1st tab of CPU-Z, a screenshot of Memory tab, and one screenshot each for each stick or RAM that you have. You can zip them and attach, or add to your post as pictures.

    Sorry, I hadn't seen this post until now. I have been spending the past few days booted into Linux Mint while I do some programming for a class. Booted back into Windows today and just a few minutes ago, the computer rebooted while I was across the room. When it came to, it was apparently installing an update. However, it seems to be stuck in a reboot loop.

    Interesting, while in Linux Mint, I never once had an issue with a random reboot. I find this encouraging, but it seems to indicate a software problem rather than a hardware problem. Hardware problems are expensive.

    I guess I'm gonna reinstall Windows and go from there since it won't snap out of this boot loop.

    Hopefully you didn't install Cisco to recreate the problem.

    I don't want to get ahead of myself, but I have been running in Windows for a couple days now (after doing a fresh reinstall) and the issue hasn't come up again. I'm going to mark this as solved unless something comes up. No idea exactly what did it.

    I haven't reinstalled Cisco, but I may need to at some point because it is required to log in to campus resources when I am not on a campus network connection (which is pretty much always, since this is a desktop in my apartment). There is a webVPN option, but it's a pain to use.

    Ahh, think I spoke too soon. Had a random reboot while I was at work at about 12:52am last night CST. Then, just now, when I noticed my graphics drivers were updateable, I updated them and had a good old-fashioned BSOD (complaining about nvldmkm.sys).

    BTW, if I wanted to learn how to read dmp files myself, where would you recommend I start? I know I need the debugging tools installed, but last time I tried this, I had trouble doing that. Now that I have gotten almost all of my computer science degree finished, I think its time I learn how to do this so that I don't have to come here every time I have an issue.

    EDIT: Did some more searching, got the debugging symbols right, and looked at the problem. I think I probably just made the mistake of not turning off the Folding@Home program before updating the drivers. Oops.

    This still doesn't explain the random reboot last night.

    I haven't reinstalled the Cisco program so we can rule that out. This Windows install is fairly young (less than a week, I think). It was a completely fresh reinstall.

    Don't run FAH and it will be alright.

    Whenever you post these drivers, how do you know they are out of date and that there are newer versions available? Some of these are pretty hard to track down.

    Sorry for these slow responses. Between 40-hour-a-week night shifts, Computer Science midterms, research projects, the post-graduation job hunt, exhaustion from walking a work every day in the freezing weather, and my failing health, I've got quite a lot on my plate right now. I'm doing good if I get a thousand calories and 6 hours of sleep in a day.

    I have a mental index of all drivers. They're easy to find. 2 of them are ATK and/or Probe II in Utilities sections at ASUS. Other is AI USB Charger.

    I went to the Asus drivers website and downloaded the AI Suite and it said everything was up to date.
