Computer Shuts Down... - Page 2

post #11 of 20
Revo is a great program and is used professionally by many Fortune 500 companies. I worked in Desktop support for my starting years in my career and have been building systems for about 10 years.

I'd never recommend a program that wasn't praised by enthusiasts or builders.

I'm wired but for wifi I use a Buffalo AirStation - http://www.buffalotech.com/products/airstation-n150-wireless-usb-adapter
Most wireless devices come with its own software for managing your wireless settings. You could also look into a wireless card such as this - https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833166121&cm_re=rosewill_wifi-_-33-166-121-_-Product

For overclocking your video card, I'd recommend either MSI Afterburner or EVGA Precision X.

Thanks, I was just checking to make sure.
I can use MSI or EVGA's programs even though I have an Asus card? Why is theirs not bloatware?

I already have a wireless device though. it came with my motherboard...It's really that bad I would need to buy a separate wi fi card?

I just realized your Mobo probably has wifi build in, in that case, better to maybe keep the ASUS Wi-Fi utility thumb.gif

Yes you can use MSI and EVGA programs with any card. They are the best ones because they have been tried, tested, and compared to other OC programs and have the best results. The ASUS Gpu tweak is part of the ASUS Suite, which was part of the initial problem.

Just wanted to update you. First of all. That program is GREAT. So it turns out that I did uninstall all this Asus garbage but it didn't uninstall everything. Even some applications were still there but there was no option in the installer, nor was it seen by windows add or remove programs, or Revo Uninstaller. So I reinstalled most of the apps and then used Revo Uninstaller to take them out. This time it seems to have cleaned all of the apps a lot better than Windows did. However, there is still some junk left over that I have no idea how to get rid of. For example, there is this strange folder called"VGA COM" that has all these ".sys" and ".dll" files, for the applications I was supposed to remove. Why are they still there and why are they in some weird folder? I googled and ca't find a VGA COM folder anywhere. I think it's important to get rid of these files, especially since iMap.sys comes up on the blue screens. Here is images of what is left in the folder. Please let me know what I should get rid of and how. Like do I need any of them? Like the fan control perhaps? Is it okay to still keep the Aura software? Without it I can't use my video cards LEDs... AsusFolder1.jpg 30k .jpg file AsusFolder2.jpg 37k .jpg file

Hey Shan, I'm glad you found the program useful.

When you ran Revo on the Asus suite, there should be an option to search more heavily to find any trace of the program. Once it searches, you should be able to select and delete it all (including registry entries).

If you did that and those folders/files are still there, you can most likely keep them, as it seems the dlls will just sit there if the program gets reinstalled at a later date. I think that VGA COM is "Video Graphics Array Communication", which is basically some resources your video card uses to communicate with your motherboard, allowing you to change LED's, overclocking, etc. I'd keep them until further testing/computer use is done.

TBH, you don't need any of these programs at all. I think gefore experience lets you disable/customize your LEDs, or ASUS probably has a download for it on their website. The software suites that comes with motherboards are usually not the best things to have when trying to monitor or tweak things, as they are outdated, and rarely patched/updated.

Do some quick searches on the forums or Google and you can find a great fan controller as well.

Thanks. I did do that option to delete all traces...what about the iOMap64.sys file that's still in my drivers folder. How come that wasn't removed. That is from the AI suite.

By the way some of those folders I showed you like the Asussystem control was running in the background. I don't get why it wouldn't be removed. I went into system properties and disabled all Asus stuff. I guess that's as good as deleting them but there is no way to manually go in there and force some sort of uninstall with revo?

Also why would I need a fan controller at all? I'm confused, they seem to be running even after I uninstalled the fan control app and disabled it.

This is so crazy to me. Asus spends so much time making sure their stuff is high quality but then they cheap out on the software? To the point it causes people problems? Crashing our computers? How is that really any different than malware. It's even hard to remove like a virus. I can't believe they would do this. It's almost bi polar.

I suspect that iomap64.sys file may actually be needed by the system/mobo somehow.

Should be ok with what is left and after disabling the Asus autorun programs. Maybe play some of the games or run the programs that were crashing it before, only time will tell if these actions solved the crashing.

Fans will always run at a predetermined speed if simply plugged into the mobo or psu, fan controllers allow you to change the speed of any fans connected to the mobo. This is useful for having a quieter machine if you are watching a video or if your using your computer at a low intensity. Remember, faster fans move more air and cool better, but also bring in more dust, and requires more frequent cleaning.

About the software thing... yea, I agree that some programs for hardware components from the manufacturers are slightly subpar. Some manufacturers are better than others. The Asus suite that comes with their mobo is notoriously bad tongue.gif

Hey man. So after we did all that stuff..uninstalling fully the Asus apps, and other things like a clean install of new nvidia drivers, and a Windows 10 update, I have not had any crashes. However, I did start a tkt with Corsair and they pretty much just jumped the gun and started an RMA on the PSU. Isn't that a big aggressive on their part? Or they know something with don't? I just don't want to replace my PSU unless I know for a fact it's defective. Especially since they probably will send a refurb that may ACTUALLY have issues. Plus I can't have my computer be down for a few weeks to get the replacement. What do you think?

Hey Shan,

Glad things are operating normally.

I honestly do not think your PSU was the issue. Considering it is working fine under load, it is possible something else overheated, or the Asus application did something which caused the shutdown.

If you can run GPU and CPU benchmarks without any shutdown, I don't see the PSU being a problem.

tl;dr - I'd continue using your system as is until it gives us a better sign that it may be the PSU failing. Check your voltages in BIOS just to make sure everything is around where it should be.
