The latest two crashes (January 16 and December 8) blame your ShrewSoft VPN Adapter IM Filter Driver; you may consider removing that for now.

Install an updated BIOS; I cannot connect to the ASUS support page to get you the download link, but that's where it can be found.

Finally, run driver verifier: Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Thank you very much.

I updated the bios 2 days ago at the latest one.

Well this is my VPN soft, i think i will remove it or look for an update. At least its not my SSD as i initially supposed.

But something is not ok. You said the last crashes was on January and December. I had several crashes on the last few days, the last one was today before i collected the report...

The last record of a system crash was on January 17, for some reason. That suggests that some hardware is at fault, usually.

In addition to driver verifier, run all 3 Prime95 tests: Blend and Small and Large FFTs.

Sorry for the dealy on my reply but i had a lot of work u_u

Well i ran all the Prime95 tests, OCCT, Intel Burning Test... all totally stable. The BSOD only happend when i leave the computer idle for long time (i didnt know the exact time, i think more than 15 mins).

I got a pic of the last BSOD (yesterday)

I think must be that my mobo or the OS is shutting down something and this causes the error.

The computer is:
i5 760 no OC
2x4Gb DDR3 1600 (runing at 1333 by default)
GTX 460 1Gb OC from factory
2 x WD Caviar Black 640Gb
1 x Seagate 1Tb
1 x SSD 64GB (OS)
Asus P7P55D PRO
All watercooloed, no leaks, so temperature is not the problem.

The other problem i think about is some kind of hardware incompatibility.

Install SP1: Learn how to install Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1)

Do you have another hard drive you can install Windows to, to make sure the SSD is not the problem?

I think i found the issue, its described here: Al intentar reanudar un equipo con un disco duro SATA grande, recibe varios mensajes de error grave en Windows 7 o en Windows Server 2008 R2

Anyway, im downloading the hotfix related in this article and SP1.

As soon as i have some time to test it i will post my results.

Thanks alot.

After the install of SP1 the BSOD showed again u_u

I readed at some place that S1 and S3 energy states can cause a similar issue too with certain motherboards, i will try to look deeper into it.
