Intermittent system locks with no trace in Event Viewer

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
The hard locks only seem to happen when i'm typing a large report or assignment on my computer, perfect timing right? I'm using a Logitech G110 and I know there are cases of it causing Windows locks.... But I dont have any logitech software installed. I have also found posts where this keyboard especially doesn't work well with Gigabyte BIOS, or interface with windows properly when using a Gigabyte motherboard.

The only error I can find in Event Viewer is the following
The Superfetch service terminated with the following error:
The system cannot find the file specified.




Not even a Kernel Power Loss log from when the computer is manually rebooted, so the system is completely locked up... If you have any thoughts or suggestions on this issue I am all ears and willing to try anything at this point. Now i'm off to rewrite this paper.

Hi.
1. Type "services.msc" in the start menu search. Launch and search the Superfetch entry. Double click,change the start type to "automatic" and click on start.
2. Run sfc /scannow.
3. Did this started after an update?
4. When at stock, does the issue persists?

Thanks for the reply, I never really thought to run an sys file check... Ill try that out when I get home... This PC has never been stable, from the day I built it, on occasion it would BSOD with a random code and never reboot again (sit at the blinking underscore in bios) even with bootrec /fixboot /fixmbr, windows repair would never fix it or half the time not even see the windows install... But it hasn't done that in a long time so that's nice. There are problems with this computer, at bone stock if I run a stress test the CPU creeps near TJ max with a Noctua NH-D14 going full blast, and then core 3 always fails and the test halts. I have owned the computer for almost 4 years with these symptoms, and the majority of the time its stable and does what I need it to. But I can justify the money I have going to a new PC build (easily $1k) when it should be going to food. Needless to say im never buying a gigabyte or AMD board again frown.gif...

This could have started after an update, but its rare enough that I probably didn't notice an exact time when it started... As BSODs and hard locks weren't extremely rare. And the computer is bone stock, no more OC sense I need it to actually work....
Ill let you know if SFC finds anything biggrin.gif

For more information, SFC found nothing wrong. Also I forgot because of my SSD SuperFetch is disabled
