Hi, I've been getting blue screened every couple of hours when my computer is idle and it just happened for the first time while in game. Not very savvy when it comes to these sort of things so I was hoping for some help on here, it would be much appreciated :) .

3b is a graphics driver problem if I remember right. Pop open your case, and remove all devices in your PCI/e slots, clean any dust off them, and firmly reseat them in the lanes. After you do that make sure you have the LATEST drivers installed for all your PCI/e devices.

Cleaned em off, firmly reseated them, did a clean removal of my drivers then updated to the latest ones. My PC's restarted once in game (no bluescreen or problem details on reboot) then blue screened again today while just browsing the internet

I'm pretty sure that BCCode indicates hardware failure, defective hardware, or possibly faulty RAM. Very odd. Is it possible for you to remove individual components and test with known good hardware to see if you could possibly isolate the issue? I'd also suggest running Memtest86 for a few hours to see if there is any problem with you RAM sticks, to at least eliminate that as a possible problem.

It may also be the fact your RAM isn't seated properly, which is an annoying but easy to fix problem. I'd check that out too.
