    HWiNFO64 freezing whole PC

    I checked HWiNFO like you said and it gives the following info: Driver Manufacturer:    Standard SATA AHCI Controller Driver Description:       Standard SATA AHCI Controller Driver Provider:           Microsoft Driver Version:            10.0.10586.0 Driver Date:               ...

    HWiNFO64 freezing whole PC

    Yup, you are quite right. I checked the 2 hardware ID's you mentioned, one was PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_A102&SUBSYS_86941043&REV_31 which a google tells me is an Intel controller while the other one is PCI\VEN_1B21&DEV_0612&SUBSYS_858D1043&REV_02 which is indeed the asmedia controller. Yeah, the...

    HWiNFO64 freezing whole PC

    I actually haven't rebooted yet since I uninstalled that asmedia driver. There was no prompt to reboot from windows so I didn't bother. I do however now have 2 devices listed under IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers and both are named as you say, standard SATA AHCI Controller so I assume one of those is...

    HWiNFO64 freezing whole PC

    I uninstalled the Asmedia driver via device manager as there was no option for me to roll back. I expected windows to then install its own driver but it didn't do anything. I told device manager to rescan for hardware changes but it still didn't install any microsoft driver. Not that it matters...

    HWiNFO64 freezing whole PC

    I also tried the Asmedia 3.1.9.0 sata driver and they didn't freeze my system, they just made 2 drives disappear like the 3.1.8.0 driver. I will try to roll back to a microsoft driver as suggested and see if drive scan works.

    Shared Memory Viewer "Failed to connect to HWiNFO"

    RE: Shared Memory Viewer "Failed to connect to HWiNFO" Are you sure you have the sensors enabled? Try right clicking on the HWiNFO icon in the notification area and click sensors. I'm not 100% sure but I think they aren't enabled by default. In the settings you might need to tick "Show sensors...

    How to convert a rainmeter skin to use hwinfo?

    Thanks! I've spent quite a few hours on it since I posted that last pic. This is how it looks now: I also made this one myself from scratch. Its a bit rough around the edges as my photoshop skills arent the best but I'm happy with it. Its basically a CPU usage monitor built in to the ROG...

    After much head scratching and swearing, I actually managed to get it working with HWiNFO64 perfectly well and also added a couple of extra readouts. :)

    How to convert a rainmeter skin to use hwinfo?

    As the title says, I have found a really nice skin that I would love to use with rainmeter but it uses open hardware monitor and core temp, both of which havent been updated for ages and dont play nice with my skylake setup. Would anyone be so kind as to help me convert this awesome skin to...

    HWiNFO64 freezing whole PC

    I installed the new version of HWiNFO64 (5.12) and ran it with drive scan enabled. I'm not entirely sure how to run it without sensors as you asked but I just defaulted the settings and turned on drive scan. It opened only the main window and the summary window like you said. Two of my HDD's...

    HWiNFO64 freezing whole PC

    Here is the debug file. Funnily enough, although the drives vanished from windows again this time, I still see them in hwinfo. Last time they disappeared from both hwinfo and windows lol. Talk about random! :D Anyway, Going to just use hwinfo without drive scan now. Thanks again for...

    HWiNFO64 freezing whole PC

    Well this gets stranger and stranger... After running hwinfo and 2 of my drives vanish as described above, my pc also wont reboot. I click restart, my monitor goes off then the system just hangs like that with the HDD LED constantly on and I have to hold down the power button to force a reboot...

    HWiNFO64 freezing whole PC

    While hwinfo now runs without freezing my pc, it does make 2 of my drives vanish when it starts. The drives were back after a reboot then as soon as hwinfo started they disappeared again.

    HWiNFO64 freezing whole PC

    Bleh, froze again. Debug file included. I will try looking again to see if there is another newer driver than 3.1.7.0. If not I will just use it without drive scan.

    I disabled drive scan and it seems to be running fine now without freezing the system. Is that for HDD's?
