Will do.
Don't know if this is any use to you, I saw it when I booted the computer up after the freeze:

I have experienced a few more crashes. They seem to be getting more and more frequent.
If I've left anything out of the Diag zip, let me know and I'll try add it in.

I've noticed that sometimes when I press 'sleep' (Usually FN+F1, not from the start menu. Have not compared) the computer will freeze up and eventually bluescreen. In case that helps.

Oh and more often than not, google chrome is open.

Try again to upload to us. I prefer not to click on unknown sites.

Understandable.

Realised I didn't compress it when I zipped it. I've heavily compressed it, but if there's anything missing/corrupt let me know and I'll send it to you.

Every report gives a new clue. It truly looks like its a driver problem. We need to find which one. If you perform a driver verifier, I think that we will get a definitive answer.

Driver Verifier
I'd suggest that you first backup your data and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Windows 7 Startup Repair feature).

In Windows 7 you can make a Startup Repair disk by going to Start....All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc - with Windows Vista you'll have to use your installation disk or the "Repair your computer" option at the top of the Safe Mode menu .

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash because
Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out. If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation (an estimate on my part).

If you can't get into Windows because it crashes too soon, try it in Safe Mode.
If you can't get into Safe Mode, try using System Restore from your installation DVD to set the system back to the previous restore point that you created.
