Sudden reboots due to BSod's + minidumps

  1. Hi,
    I've tried to wipe my pc clean (at first i thought(or hoped) my problem was software related). Tested the memory and the hard drives. And i have (absolutely no) reason to believe the problem has something to do with my video card. (also read and followed the sticky on this subject)

    (i'm going to post this part and type on in edit :)
    I apolagize for this posting behaviour but my pc is getting unpredictably unstable.)

    The (BSod related) reboots occur when the machine is practically idle. There is no visible activity other than a browser window or a desktop. Earlier today i had this problem while working in photoshop, i filled a layer on a GIGANTIC document and the photoshop progress stalled for 20 seconds before the machine BS'ed and restarted.

    I guess the problem is not stress related due to the idle state of my computer where-in these errors occur. But its really just a guess.

    Thats about all i can think of right now, if i forgot to include important information, do not hesitate to point out my error.
    Thanks for the assistance

    I apolagize for the sloppy posting on my behalf and will gladly make changes if there is a problem.

    possible solution

    The problem could be a faulty driver for the nforce4 chip on my motherboard, i havent really tested my system now but i havent had any errors since i corrected this.
