Computer is often completely frozen if I leave it on overnight

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
A lot of times I leave my computer on at night just because it's what I've always done. I'd say 3/5 times when I wake up it's completely frozen and requires a hard reset. Other times it's just fine.

What could be the reason for this?

Already:
Virus scanned, none
Not overclocked

Hello,

Sometimes this can be a program that your running in the background. If you ever look at your computer and notice the screensaver is running slow or takes awhile to load is a good sign. If your running Bionc or Folding, make sure you don't use the screensaver. There could also be several other reasons..

The best way to determine the problem is by viewing the windows event log and seeing what problem is causing the critical error.
