Windows 7: Random Reboots (No BSOD's)

Literally two Windows machines (this one and another one), both with NICs plugged into a switch/router, and able to communicate with each other via the network. It doesn't matter whether you "share" files between them presently.

Unfortunately, that's the flip side of the "building the PC yourself" coin, and most of us will empathise because we've also been there. It might be the motherboard, or the video, or the PSU, or the processor itself... it's difficult to be certain without the luxury of similar hardware to perform trial-and-error component swaps.

If you feel you've done enough to convince yourself that it's hardware, then you may want to ask the moderators to move your thread to the "hardware" section of the forum. The relevant expertise tends to congregate over there.

win 7 x64

I had a similar problem with random crashes when the computer was unattended. I tracked it down to sleep mode. I now have the monitor turn off but with sleep mode disabled and the system has been running for two weeks non-stop with no crashes. I know that some people had this problem with earlier beta versions of Win 7 but I am using a clean install of the retail DVD version of Home Premium.
