    Consistent BSOD if left untouched for 10 min or so


    Hi Eight Forums,

    I keep getting a BSOD if I leave my computer untouched for 10 minutes or so. I tried changing the sleep options via the Control Panel to never sleep and never dim the screen, but it still manages to crash when it is untouched. Enclosed is the .zip file as per the instructions. Do you think you know what it might be?

    Hi terpsfan1210,

    I assume you mean a BlackScreen of Death?

    There are no logs of a BluesScreen of Death.

    Hm. Maybe I'm getting the terminology wrong, but it's a light blue screen with no way out -- looks something like this (with a different message on the bottom):

    Before Windows loads, press the key that gives you the boot options.
    In the boot options, choose Diagnostics Test, let the diagnostics tests run.
