I am running a PC with the following specs:
Intel Core i7 930 @ 2.79 (stock)
Gigabyte GA-x58a-UD3R motherboard
Nvidia GeForce GTX460 Superclocked 1gb (factory overclocked)
3 Sticks of OCZ Gold DDR3 2gb RAM
Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
For about a week the PC will freeze and require a reboot via the power button during random times: so far I've noticed it can be anything from opening itunes to opening firefox or chrome. Looks to be completely random. After rebooting a BSOD error popup after windows loads. In addition, playing almost ANY game will cause the screen to go black, and if I wait a bit longer, the PC will restart itself, then resulting in the BSOD error popup again. My best guess is overheating based on what others have said here but I would like someone to tell me what is wrong exactly... here is what the popup says:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.256.1
Locale ID: 1033
Additional information about the problem:
OS Version: 6_1_7601
Service Pack: 1_0
Thank you so much for any help given.
EDIT:: OH I forgot that I do NOT need to wait to restart the system, I can restart right away without it hanging anywhere. Then the system runs fine...
