I believe this is a bug, but I am curious if I have made a configuration error, or incorrect support assumption.

I've had this issue since I got my computer 6 months ago(Last Christmas). I have the same problem. I have had System Mechanic intalled for 2 months. I was able to narrow down the programs I installed before the system freezes first started.

There have been no hardware changes in over a year, and only minor software. I, too, have this problem. But, should I turn the computer off over night, then on in the morning, I either risk a lock up, or just do a hard boot after about 10 minutes, assuming It really hard to figure out the problem, because it so random, i have no programs intalled at all yet (no internet).

It's really quite random, and I can't determine exactly when it would lock up.As an example, suppose I'm watching Youtube, and the video's playing. Ever since my install, i'll get sporadic complete freezes, or "hard locks", in which not even the keyboard lights will respond. Today I tested this theory by disconnecting the adapter from the computer. I do not see any reference to 'C1E' in my BIOS.

That told me the install was not to blame. Install went smoothly. Nikorr, I doubt it is a malware problem, I got a top notch Firewall/anti-virus/malware program. I have removed part of the memory and swapped out the banks to see if that would make a difference.

I set the CAS and other settings to the standard level from the manufacturer (8-8-8-24) but am still getting odd reboots.

And, more important than that, I wanted to express my appreciation to all of you for your efforts to help one another. I'm still going to update my BIOS. If you have never updated your BIOS I'd look at the various BIOS revisions on Gigabytes website to see if any of them had a problem/fix for this issue. I think this is a issue with Microsoft and not hardware, but indeed a bug!

I have run the memory though days of testing with Memtest 86+ and MemScope with not a single error.
