This has been happening ever since I bought my PC 2 years ago. I've taken it to 2 technicians several times who ran hardware tests and found nothing, thus weren't able to diagnose the problem. So a few weeks ago after I took it to the 2nd store I formatted my PC and it's happened 2 times already. My PC crashes after multiple hours of gaming, either it freezes with colored bars on the screen or a blue screen happens (mostly BSOD, the freeze hasnt happened since I formatted it).

Temperatures are normal, video card drivers are up to date, passed all memory tests. Hardware seems to be fine. PLEASE HELP ME!

Specs:
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
Motherboard: ASUS M4A88T-M USB/3
CPU: AMD Phenom II x4 965 BE 3.4Ghz
RAM: 4GB
GPU: Asus Radeon HD 6850
PSU: Corsair CX-500W
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 500GB 7200rpm

This is what I got from BlueScreenVIew:

If you overclocked then reset everything, restart a couple of times in a row (one time doesn't really do it) and then shutdown and reboot for good measure. If you don't overclock then try and figure out what you do that makes it BSOD. If it happens when gaming does turning down graphics settings fix the problem?

I also forgot to mention that alongside with one of the BSOD's my computer also froze today (not the colored bars thingy, just completely froze)

I don't have anything overclocked. It just seems to happen when I play a lot in a day. I usually play in high settings but I doubt that's the problem, plus it'd be a bit hard to play everything on low settings all day and just wait for it to happen.

Does it happen with any specific games? It is possible that your computer can't handle the game(s), but I'm not too sure. Does it ever happen if you aren't playing games?

No just random games. I think it's happened only once and I just had quit the game after many hours of playing. I doubt it's that though, my rig is pretty good.

If it happens again then note down the code it displays and then you can go from there. BSODs don't just randomly happen.
