windows 7 freezes while setting idle - one BSoD

Something happened Aug.28 causing my PC to freeze often requiring a power cycle. For some reason I only had 1 restore point Aug. 31. My event log has over 7,000 events.
So far I have tried:
chkdisk - all OK
sfc scan - all OK
ran HP's PC doctor - HD looks OK, video is OK and up to date
What is left maybe memory and reg.?

BTW I can boot to SAFE+Network and no freezing.
My BSoD - stop:0x00000009f

YoYo155,
Thank you for your reply. Seems I had either a bad connection (opened up my PC and poked around) or maybe a broken video card driver. After checking cables and connections and updating my AMD/ATI drivers I have had no BSoD and only 1 event in 1 days. While broken I has 7,200 events in about 4 days

All is now working great...if I have more trouble I will be back.

going down hill fast

I no longer can get to my desktop, recovery partition or safe mode. I made it to 'Repair' once and let it set 24hrs but it did not seem to be doing anything. I check BIOS and settings look good. The BIOS can see my HHD but the only test I could do is SMART. Both and SHORT and LONG test failed. I assume that many System Files are bad and/or the HHD had a head crash or failed. I plan to put a new (faster ) HHD in and do a full restore. I have the restore DVDs and I was able to get important files backed up a few days ago. I will just need to deal with MS if I need to activate Win7 and MS Office again

I pulled the HDD and put it in an external USB enclosure. I can see the restore partition files but if I try to look at files in the main C: partition my laptop it says ''not formatted'. Guess something bad happened. Wonder if I can recover the files?? Anyway I will set that HDD aside, install a new one and restore from DVDs I burned when I got this PC.
Thanks YoYo155 for your interest in my problems.
