Hang/Freeze update CPV

  1. #21

    ***REPORTING THE LATEST - Hang/freeze update CPV

    W8 ran well for a day. Then, during audio playback with MPC, a one-minute freeze. Some apps were accessible then, and this time there was an ERROR in event viewer (not a warning): The device, \Device\Ide\iaStor0, did not respond within the timeout period.

    Per Googled comments, I have disabled the LPM power option and enabled HOT SWAP in the BIOS for both drives. More to come...

    (Note in the requested screenshot that the driver is newer than the one you linked, but I have tested both. Drivers appear to be good.)

    After a full week with no hang or freeze it appears that the measures addressed here have been beneficial. Thanks especially to 'G Man' for his persistence.

    Why the drivers/settings mentioned in this thread were necessary and not automatically implemented during install remains problematic - perhaps attributable to BETA status.

    From the perspective of a keyboard/mouse user, W8 in its present incarnation is less friendly than W7. That's not to say that it doesn't offer features and improvements that will be appreciated by those who utilize the O/S differently. Appealing to a broad spectrum of users running a variety of platforms, and intimate interaction with 'the cloud' are stated objectives of the W8 design.

    The board is an ASUS P8P67le. I find no such drivers on the ASUStek site. When Googling for Asus SATA/AHCI controller (or driver) the results list commercial sites with Marvel driver downloads so deeply buried in advertising (typical) that one is unable to locate the desired d/l, if it even exists. Here's but one example:
    If you can figure it out you're the better man! What they really want to vend is an "update scanner."

    The # of the Marvel driver there is lower than the one now installed, so I assume that it is older.
    Try the software on the site: HP Drivers Download Sites - Download and UPdate HP Drivers from - HP Drivers Download Sites, and it can help you a lot!

Hang ---> corruption in BSOD Crashes and Debugging
While playing audio, using either WMP or MPC, the system may hang, with a reboot the only option. This can occur after just minutes, or hours. It's then evident that the NTFS is corrupt on both the SATA drive (Win 8) and an SSD drive (W7) - all partitions. CHKDSK /f fires up. Otherwise the...
