Windows 7: win7 crashing when idle/not in use

win7 crashing when idle/not in use


Would appreciate any help you can provide. My system is crashing when I leave it idle. This is my first system build, so i am a bit of a novice. The build is only about 6 months old, and this operating system was installed only a couple weeks ago.

I have the BSOD zip as per instructions, but i am getting a "missing security token" error trying to upload, can someone help with this problem as well. Sorry.

Thanks for any help!
