My System Specs


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.

I would rather believe and find god doesn't exist than to not believe and find that he does.

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.
The box:
Mobo: eVGA NF66 nForce 650i Ultra SPP
CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 3.03GHz
RAM: 1x2GB
OCZ DDR2-800 PC2-6400
+ 2x2GB Crucial DDR2-800 PC2-6400
= 6GB RAM (finally more than 2GB!)
GPU: XFX GeForce9800GTX+
HDDs: 500 Seagate, 640 GB WD Caviar Black
PSU: CoolerMaster 600W
