Windows 7: Pc just crashed/rebooted....

12 Mar 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Pc just crashed/rebooted....

Hi All,

Mrs S was on the PC (looking at twitter) and the screen went "odd" (her words) and the screen flashed and had lots of black & white horizontal lines (in a sort of 80s retro pc screen). The PC then rebooted.

I seem to remember this happening a few times with our last PC which subsequently died on us, this one's only a year old.

Been having ongoing issues with the windows repair tool which occasionally pops up, even if I go through with the repair mode it sometimes pops up again a few days later - I have heard that this is super-sensitive so not overtly concerned.

Any help or advice appreciated.

Rebooted after bugcheck
Hi I installed Windows 7 Pro 64 bit a few weeks ago. And I have been having a few crashes. Pretty sure this is driver related but am not able to interpret the mini dump. Can someone please have a look at the most recent file and help? Would be really appreciated. Many thanks.
