On occasion, my mouse, keyboard, sound, and video will freeze up for a couple of seconds. I had previously thought it was the adapter I was using to convert my older mouse into a USB. However, even now with both a USB mouse and keyboard, the problem persists. I'm worried it's my motherboard that's messed up because when these freezes occur, my internet stops working. Well, my wireless internet adapter is connected to my motherboard. Although it doesn't happen often, it won't stop once it starts and it's really starting to piss me off. Any suggestions?
Idk if it matters but I bought my p5q-e open box and it didn't come with any software. Could the problem possibly be that I havn't installed some of the stuff that was on it? I went to the manufacturer's page and there are bios and chipset downloads but I really don't know what those do. Just a thought.
Download all the chipset drivers, usb drivers, etc. I would also flash the bios if I were you.
Here's the link where I'm getting these downloads. ASUSTeK Computer Inc.-Support- well I guess you'd have to search for the board if you needed to see the page.
Download both versions of the chipsets? I don't see where the usb drivers are and I'm not sure what flashing the bios is.
Inside one of the chipsets I downloaded, it has a "usb" labeled file and a usbCopy2 setup. It also has a AsusSetup and one that just says Setup. There are other folders as well...What all do I want out of this?
just run the "setup" .exe dont pay attention to the other ones.
Does that cover everything then and is that all I would need to install? Would it make sense that this would be the solution to the problem though?
Could be if you haven't installed the drivers.
Damnit it just did it again. Was that the only thing that I could have downloaded that's relevant to my problem?
did you download all the drivers? Motherboard chipset, LAN, sound, usb, etc. ?
