What were you doing that time when it froze?

Bont expect a BSOD, they are not any good

Reseat the RAM, SATA and Power cables, clean the edges of those with cotton cloth. It may work freely then.

Will try your recommendations tomorrow. I was not at the computer at the time it crashed. Screen was black and would not respond to keyboard or mouse to bring back to life [Typical of what I usually see]. No programs were running at the time. (when I walk away for the day, I clear all open apps except a Sensor Panel from AIDA64 that I've been using to track down possible heat issues leading to this problem) Had to reboot.

No problems so far.

Dont worry. If it freezes without a crash, the situation is comparatively better I hope

BSOD while working this morning. Not doing much except CS6 DW, iTunes & Outlook. Seemed to point to ATI Driver. Here is the SF Diag. Dump. Thanks for all your help.

Jake, It is a VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE (116).

Follow the thread STOP 0x116: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR troubleshooting, it describes what to de for a stop 116, in detail.

But , there are updates for your ATI display card, after April, that you are using. Start from updating the display driver.
