I have three problems:
- My computer sometimes crashes (its happened maybe 4 times in the 8 months I've had it), such that my optical mouse and keyboard appear to lose power (their lights shut off). I believe the display freezes, too, as the clock does not change.
The last time this happened, when I started back up again, I couldn't see most of the icons in my system tray:
I don't think this is related, but does anyone know how to get rid of that Test Mode thing? I enabled it for something for work, and now I can't seem to get rid of it.
I'm running 64-bit Windows 7 Enterprise. I have an i7 920 @ 3.6GHz, 6GB RAM, and two striped Intel SSDs.
Also, when the last crash happened, it seemed to reset my system clock, and now that I look at it, most of my BIOS settings (my mulitplier is now set to 12x, gotta fix that).
Can anyone offer any insight into these problems?
This can't be good. I rebooted to fix the multiplier, and when I did, it was back up to 3.6GHz, and more concerning, my system clock was off again. It was an hour fast. The date was still correct, though. Here's what CPU-Z is now showing:
Also, the system tray icons are back. I don't know that that's necessarily a good thing. They seem to come and go every other reboot...
