Windows 7: Awesome. My PC now switches off all the time.

Awesome. My PC now switches off all the time.

Recently, my PC has been crashing a lot. I come back after work, it's crashed. I wake up in the morning, it's crashed. This has now happened 3-4 days in a row, and it means I haven't been recording any stuff with Windows Media Center.

Nothing has changed, CPU is reasonable, and I still have several Gb free on all drives (apart from 1 small partition).

Is this happening to anyone else?

Not once ... the first thought that comes to mind is a bad driver/drivers to be causing multiple BSOD, but since you have not filled out your system specs its hard to say ... Good Luck

Another thing may be a bad overclock but we need some more information and your specs if you are going to get the help you need.

if you're not using build 7100 or newer your machine will be sutting itself down quite frequently now - probably every couple of hours or so.

You can still download the B7100 iso from the MS website.

I turned of the Java Runtime Environment I picked up from somewhere, and my PC's been on for about 3 days. Fingers crossed.

if JRE was causing problems on your machine, that is only the tip of the iceburg i would imagine.

Acutally you mean until someone installs a RC or later build
