Have spent the better part of two days trying to track down bullshit driver errors in Win11, initially thought it might be a bad ram stick but the memory has passed all tests with flying colours. So now its down to a bad driver that Win11 has installed at some point...such a royal pain in the arse since modern computers have 6 million fucking drivers and it could be any one of them.
My guess is one of the Intel Networking drivers, previous experience tells me its nearly always a shitty MS version of the Intel drivers fouling up the kernel.
If its not a networking driver then its possibly one of the ASUS bloatware hardware/framework drivers, I wouldn't even bother with the ASUS shit but the motherboard does require them to control the system fans and CPU features. (Also cant turn off the RGB shit without the ASUS bloatware)
Dont get me wrong I love my crazy modern PC but I really do wish we could get rid of the RGB shit, it should have always been an optional extra and not an integral part of the motherboard.
update - I think I have solved the problem .. a full reinstall of all Intel networking drivers with ASUS ones seems to have resolved the kernel conflicts.
Oh noes, the cap let the shmooo out 😁
