Hi,

OS: Windows Vista Ultimate
stationary Computer: Dell Dimension 8400 (with new PSU)
My monitor turns blue and computer becomes inresponsive, resulting in me having to turn off power. The dvd/cd drive is the only thing that seems to work when it occurs.

I have tried:

-Two different monitors/Screens (still the same)
-Reseating graphic card (still the same)
-Cleaning Tower (still the same)

Screen example

It just started showing up after 4 to 8 hours use.



Never been a problem before. I have previously had my computer turned on for days without any problems.





At first I thought it were because I turned UAC off, but it went on even after I set it back to normal-.-



Help is appreciated~

Your link to your bluescreen does not show up properly so no way to see.

Anyhow, can you tell us approximately the age of your computer? Have you updated any drivers as of late? Have you noticed any other "strange" behavior from your computer before this started ( within the last week or so )?

Just to claify...what you posted is a BSOD/STOP error screen minus the error message. Is that exact image as it appears on your system?
