Windows 7: What log file to look for when PC froze

What log file to look for when PC froze

Hello

I got a lot of process running at the same time. Also a lot of graphic processing also. For the second time in 2 days, my PC just froze. To get out, I need to press the reset button. I was not able to use the CTRL ALT DEL to close an application.

I'm looking for what could cause that. Maybe a log file could guide me

My board: Asus P5B
Processor: Intel Q6600 quad
Windows 7 64
Ram: 6 GB
Disk: SSD 120G
Graphic Card: Asus EAH 4870 with 1 GB memory

Also, sometime, the viseo card is not fast enough and moving the mouse over one of my application is slow. If I drag the window over another screen driven by a USB graphic monitor, then the mousse move easily without a slow motion

Any help appreciated

Martin


My board is a bit old, 5 years
