    BSOD only when PC sits idle for random time.


    Hi,

    I reformatted so I lost the logs for now, but it keeps happening when I let the pc sit idle (e.g. overnight).

    I set the power options to performance mode - still had the issue
    Set the hard disk to never turn off - still had the issue.


    Any ideas?

    Hi Twisty.

    The zip you uploaded does not contain any crash dump.

    Follow it: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
    Go to Option Two, Point 2. Download the .reg file and merge it in registry by double clicking it.

    Now wait for another BSOD. When it occurred, search the .dmp files manually in the default path: C:\Windows\Minidump or %SystemRoot%\Minidump. See if the crash dump is recorded or not (hopefully it will be recorded).Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

    Dont run any disc cleanup program before you upload another zip.

    Thank you!

    It hasn't happened since I removed the side of my case to check the fans on the GFX card... hmmmmmm

    hope it's not an overheating issue. How do I check the temp of my gfx card?

    Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

    Hmm. Apparently it is not overheating. May be you need a dismantle. Clean the air vents and fan grills. That may be helpful to you.

    As you are saying, there should not be a ventilation problem. It is not overheating, too. Then why the problem vanished after removing the side of the case?

    You may close it again to see if the BSODs are coming back or not.

    Just for frame of reference too - my case is a Corsair C70. Default amount of fans in it.
