I have been have issues with my computer running windows 7 freezing at a blue scrren after 45 minutes and displaying the error: A problem has been detected and Windows has shut down to prevent damage to your computer. So I reinstalled windows and reformatted my hard drive assuming that it was a virus. So now on the new Windows installation is throwing the same error. It seems like it is happening a little less often. I am hoping you guys can help me figure out the most efficient way to isolate a bad component.

Here are the parts in the system:
Graphics Card: AMD Radeon HD 6870 -
RAM: Corsair Vengence Blu 1600Mhz DDR3 (16GB)
Power Supply: OCZ 600watt

Sounds like it could be a thermal overload.

Do you have any idea what your cpu temps are?

I just set a monitor in the bios for 70c, I hope its something simple like that. Any others ideas? I have been running the machine for about 8 months with no problems. All the components are under warranty, so if somethings bad I just need to figure out what quickly.
