Windows 7: BSOD while idleing.

BSOD while idleing.

I've never had a BSOD when i was in front of the computer, When i run the verifier, it tends to happen less. I originally thought it was when it was turning off my monitor (turned this option off when i did verifier... the first time), and after 5 days of being on, it finally crashed with verifier running, VS 2-5 times a day when verifier is off.

Before you do anything else, make sure that your cooling is proper, generally speaking the temperatures should never reach that high even under stress.

It is kinda in a small space now, i plan to cut a hole in the side of its placement and perhaps add a fan to that also, before i put it in its current location, it was in middle of room and only went to 80C after a while on kombusters burn in test.

also did step 2, 0 errors, takes forever for that test.

and step 3 complete.
