Windows 7: BSOD while idle overnight

Speccy only shows one GPU, my comment might have thrown you off ... it was only to amplify my ignorance of these things, not to suggest that Thookrull had more than one - sorry about any confusion.

I do agree that SF system specs would be THE place for HW info: Thookrull, please see EZ specs in my sig.

I also agree that if a member requests a report, the other member is somewhat obliged to provide same. We can't see what they see or know what they know and these reports often tell us more than what we originally asked to see.

Ok, I'm off to the sidelines again.

Mmm well I was just wondering what those other things are listed right alongside the GPU thinking perhaps the OP had got two or more in.

Anyway I wish I could se that PSU readout because w know what fine tolerances are needed in machines these days, and specs like you said Bill as those Speccy type ones just make for confusion - to me anyway.

Yes, 2 monitors and just one GPU (EVGA 680GTX OC).

I've been stopping the VirtualBox and network traffic via Comodo Internet Security overnight and haven't had any freezes or BSODs since OP. I'm not sure if it has anything to do with the VirtualBox itself or having internet (holes) via open ports or both. It may be something else altogether, we'll take it day by day.

Thanks for all your help, and will try some of the things some of you have posted when I have time and will get back you.

It would be nice if the Thookrull filled in My System Specs completely as was requested in post #8.

That would allow dummies like me to maybe be helpful.

This is a tutorial by Brink that can get Thookrull started.

System Info - See Your System Specs

Now I suggest waiting for the next BSOD and posting the proper logs.
While your waiting monitor your temps and put your bios back to default.
No over clocking.
If your video card came from the factory with a over clock keep that over clock just like the factory had it.

BSOD while over clocking is a over clocking problem not a BSOD problem.

Well I did ask for the specs a while back now and it looks to be fairly comprehensive which makes for some clarity but I would still like to see the HW Info on that PSU as I am not so sure it is operating within voltage limits if not current ones either.

My point being one can have all the hardware in the world stuffed into a machine but without some driving force ie regulated power supply it is to no avail.

Thank you Thookrull for filling in you specs.

Yes John your post #8 is what I was referring to.

I also agree that the power supply specs and reading are critical. The power supply is the heart of any system.
If the proper power supply isn't working correctly, nothing in the system will work correctly.

Using HW Info
PART A:
You can test the volts on the PSU with HW Info HWiNFO, HWiNFO32/64 - Download < download the right bit version and close the right hand window select Sensors and scroll down to the power section where you will see what the volts are doing see my pic.
The original right hand window shows the machine running and is handy for that but for looking at the components in some detail close it and use the main left hand side panel
FOR OTHER COMPONENTS
PART B:
Open each small square with + in it on the section the components are in and then click on the individual component/s (it will highlight in blue) - in the right hand side will appear all sorts of details including brands speeds and other essential info that particular device. See pic for example.
