owcraftsman Posted November 18, 2013 Share Posted November 18, 2013 Hello I'm here to report a bug with Aida64 v3.20.2656 beta. 1st the trouble: When I open anyone of three browser and attempt to play a video from youtube the system freezes when Aida64 and it's OSD is running. Only by using front panel reset or holding in the start buttom can I recover no amount of time resolves it. It happens overclocked and at optimized defaults. The same is true when running HWInfo64 > sensors The problem has left me with an unusable piece of software which I pay for yearly and have so for 8 or more years or before Aida took over. What I did to try and resolve the issue: At first I Googled it and tried a registry hack then I formatted and reloaded windows 8 again but turned off auto updates after the reload load followed by loading lan drivers only so I could install KBxxxxxx to allow 8.1 to show in the store. Worked like a charm with no other updates and was recommended by Microsoft in lieu of a clean install. I then downloaded and installed 8.1 on a fresh copy of 8. Then I installed all drivers followed by one piece of software at a time testing in between each installation to see that youtube still works. Note playing video files has the same effect >>> freezing >>>> hard reset It wasn't until I had installed Aida64 and configured the OSD to start with windows that the failure occurred which is when I discovered turning it off had the opposite effect of allowing videos to play. Because I overclock and game using Origin I use the Aida64 OSD to keep tract of vitals so in an attempt to work around the issue I tried HWInfo64 which is when I discovered that both pieces of software have the same effect. A few things should be noted: I completely close both products to eliminate the freezing and it occasionally requires me to restart the system and without Aida64 starting with windows. It happens with IE11 Mozilla firefox and Chrome and overclocked or at optimized defaults. System Specs: MSI Z87 G45 Gaming AMI Bios ver 1.5 Intel 4770K G.Skill Trident X memory MSI R9-290x GPU Corsair HX750 PSU Intel SSD 530 series 256GB (OS) Windows 8.1 Pro x64 One other little bug occasionally the motherboard temp sensor not NB etc, the mobo sensor disappears and is slow to start with OSD I feel like I have come a long way to resolving this on my own however I'm not sure if it repeatable by similar systems or if it's an Microsoft Aida, Intel or MSI issue For sure I have all the latest drivers bios and updates available and it appears the bios is using the latest Intel processor micro code with ver. 1.5 I have not tried your non beta of Aida64 Extreme (Paid ver) on the reload of windows but did on the original upgraded windows with the same freezing as a result. Please LMK if there is anything I can do to help resolve this issue. Regards, Wayne Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
