Your 7870 card is bad, as it behaves the same for another one PC. You need to replace it.

Yeah, thats what I figured I'm apparently not the only person on newegg who has had their bad card replaced with another bad card. I'm just gonna ask for a full refund and go with another card entirely, and steer clear of MSI in the future.

Thanks for the help.

*Sigh* Apparently two faulty video cards were a totally separate issue from the freezing when idle. I just put a totally different, brand new Gigabyte 7950 in it. I did a complete driver wipe before installing the card and reinstalled from a brand new download of the drivers from the ATI site. This card works great, but I just froze when idle and managed to get it to BSOD again with a DRIVER POWER STATE FAILURE just like before. Attached is the dump/logs.

Just did it again, within 10 minutes of the same time it did it last night. I'm starting to think some software is scheduled to autoupdate or something at ~10pm and causing some sort of driver conflict.

DS1971, you run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker.

Also , change the cable (VGA/DVI/HDMI) by which the monitor and the graphics card is connected.

I guess this is the problem here, the monitor integrity. Let us know the situation after doing that.

sfc /scannow found no issues.

I've already replaced the DVI cable twice since the OP with no difference, and the monitor has worked perfectly fine for years with my other PC. Right now I don't have another monitor to test it with, but we'll see if it crashes again tonight like it has the past two nights.

Well, really I am seeing no other reson thn that. Depending on your next post, I will refer this thread to some other person, I think.

It didn't crash last night at all, i'm totally stumped on this one too. Even ran an sfc /scannow to check the integrity of my windows install and it came back clean.

The odd thing is that sometimes when it does it I just cant force it to bluescreen, it hangs in that state indefinitely. The windows event viewer keeps recording events while its in that state, you can still access files shared from other computers. I did also notice that the NIC on this motherboard apparently defaults to using IPv6 despite the rest of my network still using IPv4, though I doubt that has anything to do with it. I get a lot of Microsoft Security Client OOBE errors too, perhaps Microsoft Security Essentials is causing the instability?

Seeing your event log, I can suggest you these things:

► Disc Check:
  1. Reseat the sata and power.
  2. Run chkdsk /f/r, following the option two of the tutorial Disk Check
  3. Seatool for dos: SeaTools | Seagate download
    Burn it in a blank cd. boot from the CD, click on "Accept", wait for it to finish detecting the drives, then in the upper left corner select "Basic Tests", then select "Long Test" and let it run.
  4. Update your SSD's firmware.
► Download and install .net framework externally.
Download .NET Framework Version 4.5 - FileHippo.com

► Use Internet Explorer 9. IE8 is outdated.
Windows Internet Explorer 9 - India, Internet Explorer 9, IE9

► Reset windows updates, to secure it gets all the updates rightly.
Windows Update - Reset

Windows Update: Currently set to check for updates daily, usually occurring between 6 and 8PM. All updates have been applied.

IE9: IE9 is already installed, and I use Firefox for everything that doesn't absolutely require IE to work.

I've run Chkdsk on both the SSD and the HDD multiple times worried that there was disk corruption from all the crashes, it never found or repaired anything. I'll try Seatools today on both drives.

Each time i've had to remove/replace the video card (I think we're up to 3 or 4 now) I've completely disconnected and reconnected all power cables :/ I'll reseat them again.
