    Confirm all your Drivers are up to date

    You may need to run ChkDsk

    Ideally a HardDrive Diagnostic Test would confirm if the HardDrive is faulty or not.

    On top of that is Memtest on your Ram (for 7 Passes).

    But it would be ideal if you have any MiniDumps to attach [​IMG] to a new reply.

    Sometimes it can be heat related. Ideally Clean all internals.
    I'd go as far as remounting the CPU with new Paste.

    That'll help to begin with anyway

    Check in CMOS for "Wake Up" events, and turn them all to off, or disable
