Crashing & can't update

    Crashing & can't update


    The crashes seem to be related to trying to install J-micron driver.

    I keep trying to upload a zip of the log files to this post but I see no indication that it actually attached. Is there some default IE setting preventing this? I'm usually a FF user.

    You can hit edit again and click the paperclip to see what is attached and/or try again.

    Other than that, it's a good idea to set Optimized Defaults in the bios and save. If something is wrong there, it would cause a bsod when trying to do things.

    But ya, only way to be able to tell things for sure is to see the bsod logs in the zip.

    I've tried several times. Upload just acts like a dead link. Is there a free hosting site?

    You're having hardware issues, and are probably unintentionally overclocking. Set Optimized Defaults in the bios, enable AHCI mode if needed after and save. Post any new crashes if they happen, but they probably won't with the fix in this post.
