My computer suddenly restarts. I sent an error message to *the super special awesome windows help system* but it didn't help me at all.

http://wer.microsoft.com/responses/Respons...52-736aa6bdcd90

It happens just randomly sometimes, sometimes when i'm opening a program.

Any idea as to how I can get more information or solvve the problem?

Maybe it your psu or power supply, try leaving it on for a while letting it restart for about 5 mins sometimes as they reset when they're cold.

The picture you posted says it's a device driver. The first place to check is in Device Manager for any red x's or yellow !'s. Go to Start...Run...and type in "devmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter.

If that doesn't work, then we'll need more info on the error message. There's a mini-guide here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/top...tml#entry409491

Red 'X' on Multimedia Audio Controller
Yellow circle with a black '!' on RAID Controller...

Now what do I do? I have no idea what these are for... but I have been having Audio problems, actually... once the sounds weirded out before the comp froze.

What kind of computer is this? Is it shop-built or home-built? The RAID controller would only be used if you had a RAID system, and you obviously do not, or it wouldn't be working. Depending on where you got your computer, the drivers could be installed, but it would be a good idea to disable the RAID controller. Some computers have a jumper on the motherboard for this. It should be in your motherboard's manual.

As to the audio - are you using on-board audio or a separate audio card?

Chances are that your BIOS got set to default or something, which is what caused the problem.

Right click on both and disable them (if you're using RAID, only disable the Sound). Does this stop the BSOD's? If so, then you've found your culprit. Update those drivers and it should fix the problem.

Well, I'm not using raid. I disabled it. So far there's no problem but it usually takes a while.

I'll post again if it happens again.

It happened again... So I guess that that wasn't the culprit.

I tried doing the debugging with the minidump and stuff, but when I click the link... it says 'Bad Request'.

So I need more help =/.

What are you doing before this all happens, Are you checking your e-mail, Watching movies, listening to music, What? usually the first thing to look for is the trigger of this, And ask yourself if its really random at all, or if something in itself is triggering it

It happens when I open programs, listening to music...

Sometimes, if I close all of my programs and leave the computer on when I go to bed, when I get back it restarted already.

But yeah, when I open pretty much any program it might happen. But I don't see how that helps me...

well
If it happens when you open "X" program then you can just fix "X" but if its happening with any program at all, I would probably say its a problem wtih the windows installation itself, there might be a bug or something that is messing it up, My advice would be a clean install, however, there will be more advice to come, So don't jump to doing that yet :thumbsup:

Personally, Im not sure how you would go about finding out a problem of this magnitude without actually watching for errors etc..

Oh, I guess that reminds me, Have you checked your system log for what exactly teh error is?
