win7 pro, running Firefox, IE, Thunderbird and media player (music) got a loud humming noise through speakers and an error message with red lettering on a white background. Win7 shut down too soon to read the message. Then rebooted showing the option for safe but I rebooted normally, ran virus scan and other utilities and everything seems OK.If anyone can steer me to a possible cause, I would appreciate the help. I may be in the wrong sub-section.

Thanks. None of the temps are above 35*. I had never seen an error message with red lettering on a white screen before and and I thought that something other than a blue screen would help pin it down.
BTW, PSU is 550w Corsair 80+
You could test your load temps, but to be honest I doubt your CPU, GPU ETC... were under much load considering what you had open, I would say its most likely to be software related but like I said before its really differcult to say without knowing the error message.
