  1. Sorry, I know there are lots of topic treating this problem, but I saw that the solution for it may vary for each user. Anyway, I have a desktop pc, everytime I go AFK for something like an hour and a half, usually to download stuff, when I come back it shows me the "Windows has recovered from dying" thing. I'm running on Windows 7 64 bit, here are the minidumps, just to save some time :D
    Thanks in advance!

    Hi xN01R,

    What is the complete error message for the BSODs you are getting? Does the system crash only when you are away from the keyboard or randomly?

    Click on the Microsoft links below for blue screen crashes and FAQs on sleep and hibernation which may be useful.

    After you check what BabitaG mentions check the hard drive and memory for errors. Also this could be a caused by a dying power supply... or video card
