Did you do as suggested in #2?

When computers give trouble after a few hours of running it is usually overheating.

Make sure the case vents are clear of dust and that the CPU heat sink and fans are not chogged up.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Please post the stop error code that is written in the bottom part of the blue screen.

If the blue screen disappears too fast to see the error code, tap F8 on startup and select 'Disable automatic restart on system failure' from the Advanced Boot Options list.

Also: If it starts after a little while. install HWMonitor and check your internal temperatures. Check the temps at idle and after using it while. If you cannot boot to Windows, check your temps in your BIOS. Report these temps and fan rpm's back as well as all other results.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

It's still going. Looks good after 2 hours.

That's good, how long was it usually holding up before you did the cleanup?

It's been going on six hours now. No Problem. Before it usually lasted up to 2 hours. Maybe a little more.

Derek this is Frank(junebug41) Let it on for 24 hours. Went out to run an errand. It booted right back up when I returned. I am in Los Angeles. I remember you saying that you are in the UK. The computer is not giving any indication that it will malfunction. Thanks again!

Yep I'm from that little island quite a few 1000 miles to the west of you, with quite a lot of land and sea between us. We come from far and wide on here, although folk are predominately from the USA.

By the way, I did work out who you were on that lounge post (click-click - eventually).
I guess I see so many posters on here....

Anyhow, yes, I do believe we can put this one to bed now, so best of luck with it and
see you around Frank.

Err ... wish they were all that easy LOL
