I recently formatted and re-installed widows 7 Ultimate on to my desktop PC that I've had for two years now. The spec is as follows:
OcUK GeForce GTX 460 1024MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card £79.99 1 £79.99 Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 500GB SATA 6Gb/s 16MB Cache - OEM (ST500DM002) HDD £52.49 1 £52.49 Cooler Master GX 450W '80 Plus Bronze' Power Supply £22.49 1 £22.49 Xigmatek Asgard Midi Tower Case - Black £20.82 1 £20.82 OcUK 22x DVD±RW SATA ReWriter (Black) - OEM £13.32 1 £13.32 OcUK USB Keyboard - Black £4.16 1 £4.16 Antec Tri-Cool 3-Speed 120mm Fan - Black
(As copied from my Overclockers order sheet!)
Before restoring, I took off the CPU fan ro remove dust, and also the GFX card to remove dust before putting both back in. (I didn't re-apply any thermal paste!? - Not sure how essential this is)
After re-installing, the computer seems to randomly restart. The computer will freeze for about 5 seconds before the screen goes black. It then beeps and restarts. Uopn restart it tells me windows has recoverd from an error and the following is the error report it gives:

The problem tents to happen when I'm doing something a little more demanding (movie editing / photoshop) but if I leave it on over night, I'll usually wake up to it displaying the 'Windows has recovered from an unexpected error" message.
Any help / advice would be greatly appreciated.
