Windows 7: Computer Crashes at random and when hibernating.

30 Jan 2011   #1

Computer Crashes at random and when hibernating.

Recently, my computer crashes at random (mostly when I leave my PC downloading stuff) and also when I hibernate my PC and then, I turn my PC on again and it says that windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown.

Please help me since this is becoming rather annoying, I have Windows 7 Professional 64 bits, and I clean my PC constantly to avoid any overheating issues.

Hi andresft
Your graphic card driver was blamed. Please re-install it to see if the problem is fix. When upgrading your graphic driver you MUST remove all traces of the current driver. In order to do that we recommend using Guru3D - Driver Sweeper

When it is removed then download and install the fresh copy.

Are you using any antivirus program????

Update this out of date driver please:
