Twice today I've had my computer tell me it didn't shut down properly. Both times though everything was still on. I would go to wake it from sleep and it would go straight to restarting then telling me it didn't shut down properly. It's a machine I built myself last weekend with W7. I've had Vista up until now so I'm not quite up to speed on all of 7's in's and out's. Any ideas as to what's going on?

Is there any chance that you had a power interruption while you were away from the machine?

Not really. I was just in the other room like 10 feet away. Came back to the machine after about 30 mins or so. Screen was black like it typically is when the monitor goes to sleep. When I moved the mouse around and hit space bar to wake it up it just started rebooting. I'm thinking it's something to do with sleep or power saver, but it has been fine until today.

EDIT: Including the error reports if anyone can make heads or tails out of them.

Okay apparently it's saying my graphics driver has failed those two listed times. I've checked the drivers and they are up to date. I'm trying to figure out how to download the current driver so I can try re-installing it.

I just wiped out the nvidia drivers and reinstalled them. Put the computer to sleep and got the same results when trying to wake it. The only thing I can think of is that I installed my Xonar DG card yesterday and it's kind of of tight fit on the mobo with the GTS450 having this huge plastic casing around it. I just see that as a hardware issue as opposed to a driver issue. Could the Xonar drivers be causing some sort of conflict that would make the video drivers fail?

Remove it(Xonar) and see... I think that is the suspect. Re-install Xonar the drivers too.

Okay, after a restore point of approx 24 hours ago, wiping xonar drivers, reinstalling from disk, updating to most recent driver and then testing, I got another blue screen. I just came back from restart, rolled back the Xonar driver and I slept and woke up successfully. It's a shame because the Asus support site and forums are horrible so I guess I just stick with this driver from last year. It's odd though. In the previous box I had this card in I don't remember having any sort of issues ever and it was paired with the same gpu.
