I am getting BSODs everytime I leave my computer on while I'm away at work... I don't get them when I am home.. only when the computer is idle.. I have included the necessary documents and hope that you can help thanks

Also specs information that was requested:

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
Full Retail Version
Hardware 3 days old (New motherboard, processor and ram)
OS Installation 3 days old

Specs of new Hardware:
AMD Phenom II x4 955 Black Edition 3.2GHZ
4GB G. Skill DDR3 1333mhz

No overclocking has been done, BIOS is at default settings. Minus BIOS posting, I turned off silent and quick posting.

No DMP files included in upload. Try this method.




To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.



To ensure minidumps are enabled:

Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
OK your way out.
Reboot if changes have been made.

I honestly don't know what happened to those files, after the crash I went to the folder and seen 3 of them then they mysteriously got deleted, I know for certain I didn't delete them.

I actually fixed my problem, it was the DRAM latency, it was not set to 8-8-8-24 like it was supposed to... apparently my BIOS was set to auto, and was wrong. But thanks for the reply I appreciate it
