Windows 7: Blue Screen...

If your video card did not overheat and you got no artifacts, distortions, etc., it is most likely OK. Your memory seems to be OK, too. Remember, these tests are not 100%; so the probability is that your video card and RAM are good. Now enable Driver Verifier following the instructions in this tutorial closely. If Driver Verifier finds a faulty driver, it will trigger a BSOD. Upload any and all Driver Verifier enabled dumps.

alright will do. Just going off topic for a moment. Whenever i lock my computer and go away for 15 mins and then come back it seems like it does not respond or something. For example I have it locked then i turn on my monitor and i get a black screen. I click my mouse, hit some keys and still nothing. any idea on this?

Thanks for all your help,
Neil

ok so i ran it and nothing seemed to happen. so i typed in verifier/query into command prompt to see it and it ran something and then closed itself. But no BSOD. So does it mean it was not a driver problem after all?

With Driver Verifier running (it runs in the background), you continue to use your computer normally. This is how Driver Verifier finds faulty drivers.

Yes, until you turn it off.

Okay so does it say when it has checked all drivers or do we just assume it will crash?

The only report Driver Verifier gives is a dump file if it encounters a faulty driver. Otherwise you do not notice it running. After you have used your computer for about three days with Driver Verifier enabled and you have not had BSOD, you can turn it off as instructed in the tutorial.
