    Can you please post your minidumps for analysis?

    You can find them in C:\Windows\minidump.

    Please zip (if you have multiple dumps) in a single file and post them. Regards

    Sounds much like a faulty motherboard. How old is it, and what model. Up to a couple of years ago there were many motherboards with suspect capacitors, made with a faulty (pirated) compound, such that they generated hydrogen and eventually burst.

    All the errors are 0x00000051 registry errors.

    One of the reasons for this are that the computer is running under high stress.

    As you have OCed your system, I would suggest you to step down to your default speeds and see whether it helps. Regards

    i might of OC'd my system but i really cannot remember doing it and i just cheked my bios its normal after i reset it but it keeps crashing , every internal part exept motherboard has been replaced so could i have a dodgy motherboard ?
    i dont really use my pc for much just itunes and abit of crysis here and there.

    Well first thing to try with information you have given is update your motherboard's BIOS, now that you have restored everything to factory default speeds, and see what happens.
