Running programs seem to close by themselves at night
Well, my system has been apparently restarting itself late at night after a period of inactivity...never when I am actively using it.... because I sat down to the computer this morning and Illustrator and Photoshop and my email program were all closed - just windows was up and running.
I had "unchecked" the "automatically restart" box as is usually suggested, hoping it would show the bsod or dump file.... but my computer still did not show the BSOD on screen like I assumed it would. It just apparently restarts.... no problems shown in/under the Action Center Flag in my system tray.....Any suggestions??? Thanks....
I will mention that my Asus motherboard has all 6 memory slots filled with 2 gb memory sticks each for 12 gb memory. I've heard that filling all memory slots to motherboard capacity can be troublesome???
Edit: By the way... I checked for a Mini Dump file under "Windows" and I don't have any listed as of yesterday or today?????
What to do??
Intel i7 920
Windows 7 Pro 64bit
OCZ ram - 6-2gb sticks for a total of 12 gb ram
Evga Nvidia 8800 gts video

Ahhhh... I DO have Updates set to install automatically.... that could very well be the issue then...is it good to have it set like that? Thanks good people!
Re: OCZ ram - I had OCZ techs help me set up the timings when I first got the system going...so I *think* I'm good there... :-)
