My System Specs

Default

My only thought would be VPU Lockup and Crash. I know I got a set of Drivers that were buggy on a HIS X1900 , where it would freeze and lock the screen until the VPU recovered from the issue.
I Un-install of the Video Drivers, and a Newer Version of Catalyst fixed it..

Just my thoughts at least, considering your Memory Passed the test.

Regards,

ST

Yes, and for some strange reason, I've gone like two days now without a crash!

I'm going to just go with it for now, and if it crashes again I'll try to re-install video drivers/wait for a new version of the nVidia ones to come out.
