Windows 7: Random BSOD - Often At Night

Random BSOD - Often At Night

Hey Everyone!

Recently (past several months), I am experiencing apparently random BSOD on my 3 year old PC. It sometimes happens when I am using it (anything from watching a YoutTube video to working on setting up a printer network connection), but more often happens when the machine is still running through the night; I wake up to a rebooted machine. It runs an FTP server, so I leave it running 24/7. It has been happening about once a day or two. I ran a Memtest and it found no errors.

Windows 7 x64 - Upgraded From Vista x64 (The HD migrated from an older machine.)

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

caused by drivers using improper addresses.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Thanks for sending me in the right direction! The SmartBoard drivers get installed with the creation software for my SmartBoard at work, so this comp is never attached to it.

When I ran Prime95, it BSOD-ed within a minute. I went in and reset the bios to default, non-overclocked anything and it was stable. Researched some other overclock settings for the i7 920 and found some that work now. The previous had worked for 3 years. I guess it just wanted a change, hehehe.

Thanks again!
