There's nothing wrong with it being that old unless a new version has an update that you need. I'm still using a UEFI version that came out in the Summer of 2011 and it's not hurting anything.


Can you reset your settings back to stock and then try again? The stability of your system cannot be judged by your settings alone; thorough stability testing needs to be done. So reset to stock and see if anything changes.

Loneliness is a good thing to share with someone.

The virtuous spirit has no need for thankful approval, owning a certain conviction that what has been done is right.
