Windows 7: BSOD when idle for 1 hour.

26 Dec 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
BSOD when idle for 1 hour.

My system has runned Windows XP Pro from the beginning. Since a few days, I have updated the system to 7 Ultimate 64bit (new install, not a upgrade).

After I updated the whole system and installed the correct drivers from Intel and AMD/ATI it ran fine. But after a few hours, I went out for an hour and when I came back, the system had restarted.
The first thing I did was changing the settings so it won't reboot on BSOD. I let it idle for a while and after about 50 minutes, a BSOD occured (IRQ NOT LESS OR EQUAL).

I had it scan the memory for 5 cycles with memtest 86 but no errors found.
Closer look at the dumps indicate that the first BSOD was MEMORY MANAGEMENT and the second IRQ NOT LESS OR EQUAL.

Any ideas?
