I just got home from work and saw my computer has crashed sometime last night or during the night, turns out it crashed a few times, here is the report.

OK the most obvious direction is to check your temps first so that is where I am going start.

Download Speedfan (The download link is to the right), and install it. Once it's installed, run the program and post here the information it shows.
The information I want you to post is the stuff that is circled in the example picture I have attached.
To make sure we are getting all the correct information it would help us if you were to attach a screenshot like the one below of your Speedfan results.

To do a screenshot please have click on your Print Screen on your keyboard.
  • It is normally the key above your number pad between the F12 key and the Scroll Lock key
  • Now go to Start and then to All Programs
  • Scroll to Accessories and then click on Paint
  • In the Empty White Area click and hold the CTRL key and then click the V
  • Go to the File option at the top and click on Save as
  • Save as file type JPEG and save it to your Desktop
  • Attach it to your next reply

All right I see a problem now.
Your video chipset may be over heating and your CPU looks like it is getting a little warm.
Now is this a laptop or a desktop?
If desktop when was the last time you cleaned it out?
