Hey guys,

 

I think the title is self explanatory...

Any idea where I could find the latest BIOS drivers for a Viglen DQ67SW motherboard?

 

Cheers,

A.

What bios do you currently have?  Provide the entire bios string.

What is Viglen?

What Intel tool?

In windows 10, run MSINFO32.  The BIOS string will look something like this example:

BIOS Version/Date          Intel Corp. KCH7710H.86A.0112.2018.1025.1133, 10/25/2018

I was using the Driver Support Assistant.

 

Here's the version from MSINFO32:

BIOS Version/Date Intel Corp. SWQ6710H.86A.0070.2018.1024.1352, 24-Oct-18

You already have bios 0070, which is that latest/last.

 

Why do you think you need to update the bios?

Well, my PC keeps randomly shutting down.

 

I've checked everything - drivers, malware, power options, temps - everything seems to be fine.

It powers off after 30 minutes to one hour of uptime - didn't really count to see exactly exactly how much.

Have you cleaned the heatsink/fan on the processor?

Have you re-applied the thermal paste on the processor?

Have you tried a different power supply?

 

Let's start with those.

The temps of the CPU are fine: ~50C

I didn't try another PSU as I don't have one available.

 

Maybe you can understand something from these logs.

What is your processor model number?   MSINFO32 will tell you.

Some other mentions, maybe this will help:
1. When turning the PC on, sometimes, it resets after one second for once or multiple times until it finally boots up.
2. When powering it off by Shutdown, sometimes, it comes back up after a few seconds

Could this indicate PSU as well or even motherboard?

What I also want you to do is go into BIOS Setup and extract the Management Engine Firmware revision. To do this, do the following:

  1. Power on the board.
  2. Immediately, begin pressing the F2 key on your keyboard over and over and over (about once a second). Eventually, you should see the main screen of BIOS Setup appear.
  3. Scroll down to the Additional System Information entry. That title is from memory, so it may not be exactly that. It should be the entry just above the date and time.
  4. Press <enter> to display this scene.
  5. Scroll down to the bottom of the scene. Note that the scene may be longer that will fit on the screen, so keep scrolling until it hits bottom.
  6. The Management Engine firmware version field should now be on the screen. What is it? Take a picture of the screen.

Well, it's good that the ME is running properly. I would check for failure occurring exactly 30 minutes after powering on. This would be indication that the ME is responsible.

Have you tested your memory? Download and run something like MemTest86 or MemTest86+ that will thoroughly test the memory (the Windows test is useless AFAIAC).

Ok, I'll test it and come back with a result tomorrow as it's 1AM where I live.

 

PC has been up for about two hours now.

I'll see if the issue occurs again tomorrow - all I did was update the optional drivers Windows Update offers as I've read that GUID: 331c3b3a-2005-44c2-ac5e-77220c37d6b4 can be caused by drivers.

 

Cheers,

Ok, so last night it was fine.
Today it's acting up again.

I've ran the system in Safe Mode and the same thing happened. This should mean that, at least 99%, is not a driver issue.

Some other mentions, maybe this will help:
1. When turning the PC on, sometimes, it resets after one second for once or multiple times until it finally boots up.
2. When powering it off by Shutdown, sometimes, it comes back up after a few seconds

Yep, just ordered one 10 minutes ago.

Should arrive tomorrow - got a 650W PSU, I hope that's enough for my old i5, one SSD, one HDD and the 1050gtx.

Have you used MemTest86/MemTest86+ to test your memory? Those resets you hear going on during the POST process are typically caused by an inability to initialize the memory.
