    crash/reboot while unattended

    I used to get these crashes while the computer was not being used (e.g., a year ago) and thought the problem had gone away.

    It happened last night while the somputer was unattended. Firefox was open with a few tabs. Some Word (2010) documents were open. uTorrent may have been running but I'm not sure. (uTorrent is often left running with no problem.)

    - SF diag zip file
    - Speccy snapshot
    - graphs from HW Monitor Pro

    As I've been sitting here, I've noticed CPU temperatures that, from my not-very-educated perspective, seem like they may be considered high.

    I know how to collect this stuff but I don't know how to interpret it.

    I would appreciate any help I can get here.

    • Asus AI sensor says approx. 107 degrees F.
    • Speccy says the CPU temp is about 177 degrees at this moment.
    • some snapshot graphs from HW Monitor Pro are attached

    Yes, your CPU might be a problem. Please test it using this: Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95 - Windows 7 Help Forums Choose Small FFTs test for now. Is the CPU cooled in some way?
