BSOD For no apparent reason? (Vista)

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi.

Ok, when I leave my computer idle overnight, it has one or more blue screens come up. Whenever they come up, my comp restarts automatically. Why does the bsod torment my computer? =]

Are you overclocked? Anything overheating? I know theres a setting to stop the automatic restart when the system fails but don't know it off the top of my head :\\

The first thing I recommend is running memtest86+ to make sure that your RAM is working correctly. Random and sporadic restarts are the symptoms of faulty, or badly configured RAM.

Typically thays either a Driver issue or bad RAM. In most cases its a driver issue and I wouldnt be all surprised in Vista.

Make sure you are running the LATEST drivers and be sure there all vista compatible.
