NOTE: I went on a random download spree so I could have easily downloaded a virus, I have norton and I have run about 5 scans today so im not sure but ill try and delete as many programs that were installed as possible and see if it helps...

  1. Follow that directory link, it will detail the problem there.

    A virus wouldn't cause a blue-screen, not much gain for it killing your machine.
    I wouldn't worry about it. Once in a blue moon my machine BSOD's and its all fine. If it starts happening constantly would I be worried.
  2. ok thank you ill look at the link
  3. it happened again :(
  4. Its most likely due to your OC,

    dumbing down to 4.6 might work, but you might just need a small voltage increase, what is your voltage for the cpu at right now?

    When you say running for 2 days, is that 2 days running straight? Or 2 days on and off?

    When you first OC its a good idea to run a day or two stress test if you plan on leaving it on constantly.
  5. first, it was two days straight, also i think i solved it i looked up "who crashed" and ran it, it turns out that it was my network card(i was downloading big files overnight when it crashed) so i updated those drivers and not another crash since
  6. interesting. Glad you solved it though, hope the problem stays fixed :sol:
  7. yeah, not sure
