Windows 7: Blank Blue Screen (Not BSOD)

21 Jan 2010   #1

Windows 7 64 Ultimate
Blank Blue Screen (Not BSOD)

Okay, I have a problem involving my computer.

It's a newly built machine, say, about 2 weeks old. Custom built of course.

I'm running Windows 7 64 bit Ultimate edition.

The problem is that whenever I turn my computer on in the morning/afternoon after it's been shutdown for the night it eventually crashes and brings up a blank light blue-ish screen. No text, nothing. It doesn't seem to be BSOD.

This usually happens 5-10 minutes after I've been doing something like browsing the internet. And when I turn my computer back on, I get the "Windows has shut down unexpectedly" and I'm given the option to run in safe mode, normal, etc.

When checking the event logs, I'm always given a critical error when this happens:

I assumed this was a motherboard chipset error. Which would make sense, since I forgot to use the installation disc that came with my motherboard. So, I dig out the disc and insert it and install everything it recommends. So, here I am thinking I'm all set to go.. But, when I turn my computer on this morning, while checking the weather (snow ), my computer once again crashes into this blue screen. I don't know what to do.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. And I will supply any more details if needed.


Edit: Oh, I forgot to add, the Computer works perfectly after I start it up after the crash. Everything works fine, until I shut it down and boot it back up several hours later. I can even put it to sleep and wake it back up with no problems.

I have exactly the same problem as described above. Believe this to be an airflow/heating issue. Have had my PCU overclocked which caused this problem to appear on a regular basis. I went back to benchmark PCU frequenccies and the problem disappeared for few months. It is now back and could possibly be due to accumulation of dust in the cpu fan and also due to the fact that I have the system in an inset drawer and therefore airflow does not wander freely as it should. Have cleaned the system and moved it to a better area. See how it goes, perhaps this will help your case too?

Kind regards,
